Hello August!

Hey everyone!~

Another new month now, summer is ticking away very fast. It’s currently pretty rainy and cloudy outside, not much one can do with this weather. But besides this fact, I have been waiting with great patience for many things that are happening this coming August. 🙂 

My summer is a ticking away fast and I can’t wait until it is over, as weird as it sounds! Everything seems to happen towards the end of summer. It is in August where I would be able to attend a dance intensive in Dublin. (The Dance Institute).

As I am not a life-long dancer and late- starter this intensive will be catered towards my level. Besides ballet, we will be doing modern and contemporary, jazz, Tap (which I am looking forward to), pilates, Street and Ballroom. I honestly have no experience in any of these dances however I am looking forward to dancing ballet, which I will be doing every day alongside jazz. It will be an amazing experience I cannot wait! At the same time, I don’t want to have extremely high expectations as it might not be what I expect. In all honesty, I am a bit apprehensive as I am already 17 and I feel like many of the dancers will be young dancers. Thankfully, as I am of Asian descent, I look younger than I really am. For once I am grateful to be seen as more youthful! 😉 Many people seem to assume I am fifteen or younger than my real age and now I can honestly say this will definitely help me in the ballet world.

It is also at this month that I will be getting my Leaving Cert results (click here to read about the Leaving Cert). Last month, in June I sat my leaving cert exams which will determine whether I get into the University of my choice. I think it would be equivalent to the A Levels in the UK and SATS in America. Basically, it takes your grades and adds them up in points which determine your place in Uni. Coincidentally, the day I get my results will be the same time I will be attending my summer intensive.

I am planning on pursuing Physiotherapy as my major which will be a full-time 4-year course in RCSI (Royal College of Surgeons). At the same time, I want to develop my love for dancing, which will be quite difficult in consideration of my choice of major. However, I am very optimistic about the future, my ballet teacher; Ms. S. is setting a provisional timetable where we would have three classes a week on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

If you are following ballet.to (me by the way) You might have seen a similar post I did to this one. That’s right I stole content from another website which is mine! Hehehe But, I will let you I have tweaked in some ways to suit the time frame.

Hope you guys have a lovely week! As always see you in my next post. 

May- xxx

Is summer over? And update. 

Summers in  Ireland are very scarcely and when there is sun it usually lasts for only a couple of hours before clouds cover the sky again. Luckily, this summer we were able to experience the cool and warm weather of summer. Temperatures were quite high, around 20° and up. But nothing compared to our counterpart in London at 29°

However, I don’t really mind the heat. More often I usually visit my family across the world where temperatures are hotter and the climate more tropical. So you could say I am very used to hot weather. Unfortunately, this year I won’t be traveling across the world. With, uni just around the corner and summer intensive to attend it is very hectic, at the moment.


Here’s a photo of how beautiful summers can be here in Ireland.♡♡♡ 

As opposed to what everyday would look like. Very dull and dark, usually. But these days are great for hot chocolate beside a cosy fire. ♡♡

This year has been an amazing year for me. I started my own blog around this time last year and I graduated from school. I can’t wait to start a new chapter in my life and to bring you guys along with me. I don’t know what the future has in store for me but hopefully it is an interesting one filled with big bumps and unexpected moments!
Love Mayxxx
