Dance Like No One is Watching

I really admire people who can express themselves confidently. Whether it be dancing, singing, writing or traveling... That's something really worth admiring, because I know some people have issues expressing themselves. I, for example.

When I was younger (I'm still young now, or so I thought), I always find it hard how to let people know how I feel for some certain things. I am afraid to speak up what I think. I hate confrontation. Then, later on I found out how therapeutic it is to write your thoughts and emotions. I blogged about anything, even the silliest thing of my daily life. I met friends I wish I know in real life.

I told myself, I wish I discovered blogging when I was on my first day of high school where I really struggled, trying to fit in and make friends with people (with the same age as me, of course) who speaks a very different dialect from mine. I was a transferee and it was scary because I don't anyone.

I hate dancing and singing. Both are just not my cup of tea, but I wish it was. My cousins, friends and even my younger siblings are great at dancing and singing. It left me questioning myself again why can't I do these things. 

But, I gave dancing and singing a try. I sang "Nang Dahil sa Pag-ibig" in our music subject which made my face red as a tomato because it's the first time I sang for more or less 40 students as an audience. At least I tried anyway! An experience I would never forget. I also tried dancing, I joined a mass demo which I look awkward dancing to Britney Spears' "Toxic".
But it is only in the blogging world where I felt I really belong. And oh God, how thankful I am to have found this virtual space for a weirdo like me.

My best friend expresses herself best when she dance. Now, she's one of the dancers in a local TV show in Cebu called 'Sabado Trip'. My cousin is at best when he sings. That's freedom for them!

And here's my sister, showing the world of her dancing skills. I wish she wouldn't turn out to be awkward like me in the coming years. 

So, how about you? What's your cup of tea?

Sis Marie, your sister has some silly moods. I love to sing and also love to dance especially the sexy ones. I prefer singing the most where I can express my hearts out.

Hi Marie! I feel you, sis. Like you, I had a hard time adjusting. My parents did not want me to attend 7th grade so they transferred me to a different school to start on my freshman year of high school. I had no friends for the first few months which made me really really sad. I got over it anyway, when I gained friends who were also in the same boat as me. And I do agree with you, blogging is really therapeutic. I wish I started on this a long time ago too.

I love to sing, but I didn't really get the chance to improve this skill. I sang in school on several occasions, sing in family gatherings and will have a song number in church this Sunday. I hope it will turn out fine.

I love exploring new places and travelling. It gives me a sense of fulfilment meeting new people and learning things from a new city/country
