blues baby blues

I had such a lovely time at Blues Baby Blues.

Basically forgot to take photos. Busy dancing and having feelings.

But here's a photo I took: Dagmar, Miranda and Liam as the Sky is Crying (the theme was "come as your favorite blues song"). How beautiful are they?

And here's my friend Anna DJ:ing.

But luckily, I had Michael with me, and he took photos! Of me! Dancing! I'm so glad to have these:

Here I am with Aggie in the Mix & Match prelims. All I knew when signing up was that there was going to be a twist. Well, there were plenty. :) For this round we had to tie one leg together. That as difficult. But fun. :)

And in the next round we had to keep a balloon between us while dancing.

I made finals and got paired up with the amazing Samuel Tinguely! And we got costumes! I was handed a bag with a note saying "posh lady". Which, I'm afraid to say, I was pretty good at? :)

Also, we placed third! At Blues Baby Blues! And I have that feeling again, the same feeling I had placing second at Berlin Blues Explosion and Blues in the Hudd: What the hell is happening? I must be getting good at this? Or something?

Walking to the tube after a long and intense night.

On Sunday, I only took these two, of the decorations at the pub where we were dancing. Other than that, life happened. It tends to do that to me, you know?

walking in surrey

On saturday afternoon (the day after this day) we went to Surrey, because walking in nature has my heart.

And just look at our day:

You can say a lot of things about England, but it's not ugly.

I went to london

Oops! I seem to be traveling quite a lot lately? And people think I am "a little" crazy. But it's just that life is so much fun. And there is so much of it, so much life to be had. So much beauty, I can't not want to take it all in. So I went to London. I went mostly to dance (Blues Baby Blues!) but I felt more like touristing in the daytime than taking classes. So I stayed with Michael over the weekend and we had an amazing time, basically.

They have weird squirrels imported from over the pond! Squirrels should be tiny and reddish brown. These are all wrong. But still cute. Though not as cute.

Look at that lovely Australian!

Also, look at that crazy Australian!

On Friday, we went to the Design Museum. Because I had never been, and design!

I was impressed, it was really well done.

Read this and almost cried, because am me.

Stuffs I care most about in design:

1. Maps
2. Fonts
3. Other things that are flat
4. Things that are not flat.

It was a very lovely Friday.
