Spring Fleadh - Oh. My. Gosh.

Wow! I am still having trouble believing this, and I can't get my head around it. Just insane and crazy and nuts.

Not only did I come home with 6 medals, but I also came home with two Primary trophies. Again, still thinking: WHAT?!

Beginner Slip Jig: 2nd and graded

Primary Reel: Didn't place

Primary Single Jig: 3rd place

Primary Slip Jig: 1st

Primary Treble Jig: 2nd and graded *I think*

Primary Special Event - St. Patrick's Day and Light Jig: 1st

Primary Special Event - Treble Reel: 1st...WHAT?!

Intermediate Special Event - Single Jig and St. Patrick's Day: 3rd

Primary Two Hand Reel: 1st


Oh. My. Gosh. Just...what?! HOW?! I can't believe it, seriously can't. I also got a certificate and ribbon as a participation. Anyways, no more Beginner = WIG!! And I don't know (I'm serious) how I won Treble Reel. I was sure I stuffed it up and was almost sick side-stage. WHAT?! Haha. I also got heaps and heaps of hugs from everyone and all that. It was amazing. Anddddd....another achievement (well...for me!) was that my dress needs to be taken in...by heaps. During the two hand, it moved around so much, it was weird. lol.

Despite being on such a high right now, I am dead tired. Eleven events later and all I wan't to do is sleep. I'm not sure how I'm going to get the two gallons of hair spray and other hair products out; along with a billion bobby-pins and hair ties. But I don't care; I'm still on such a high and feel so great.

Thanks Laura; it's so weird to say that. I'm going to wake up every morning and still be on this wave of pure happiness. It's just unreal.

Congratulations on your great results! Hard work pays off in the end :)

It's nice to think it's spring somewhere on this planet, with autumn closing in faster than you can say Oireachtas where I live :P

Congratulations again!

Kind regards,

Spring? Spring? No way. Last year when I went to watch, it was like 35.c + and this year, it was like 10.c and pouring with rain. I just need to know how on earth I won the Treble Reel. I was so nervous and my hands were sweaty. I swear I was out of time. Apparently not? lol

^ Yea, a tummy full of butterflies, the feeling of being sick and not being able to smile for very long?! Haha. I don't know what it was, but it's an amazing feeling. We were sitting there, my friends and I, and they said: Number blah blah, *insert name* from *insert school* and I was like, okay, I think this is my section. Then we got to second and it was my friend and they're like number *insert here*, *insert name* from RAID. And she didn't realise, lol. Then they got to first and I'm like I'm sure my friend has it, she danced so well, then they were like: And number 49, Chiara from RAID. I was like, um no? What? You're mistaken?! Then I got back to my place and I was sure they announced the wrong name/number/school. Weird much?! Haha

According to the forecast I'll be enjoying 5 C (max) and rain next week! LOL

Feeling nervous (and having your heart race faster than usual) can alter how you hear music. It may seem a lot slower than usual to you, because how we perceive music is related to our heartbeat (natural rhythm). But am sure your legs knew what they were doing on that stage given you won, no matter what it felt like to you at the time :D

Hey, I was a nervous wreck at Nationals this year, bursting into tears just before I went on stage, feeling like I was going to be sick... but I think I danced just about as well as I ever have! A little bit of nervousness is good, I think.

^Teashark, I never knew that about how our heartbeat changes the way we hear music! Very interesting (:

On a side note, what does "graded" mean?

^ I believe 'graded' means that she moved up to the next level. At least that's what it means where I live. (Forgive me if I'm wrong).

That's right. I'm fully out of Beginner and have one dance in Intermediate. Eek, I'm still excited and I've just woken up and can barely walk. lol

Thank you! I might be getting a cupcake skirt with a dropped bodice, loaded with crystals, in time for States next year...if I go. The dress will be two-three shades of pink, for the skirt, and a black bodice.

Now, I just need to learn Inter Jig, win Primary Slip again, learn Inter Slip and a new Set and make them look perfect and then I can go to States. Mouth-full much?! And then, once I get graded out of Primary, I can join the Inter/Open class!! Whoo!
