PARTS Exchange: chapt 1: european keybords

European keyboards are hard to write on. my fingers are having a hard time erasing their muscle memory and creating new synapses in the brain to allow for quick and easy flow from brain to page. which makes me think of the numerous ideas, patterns, judgements, pre-conceived notions and perhaps fabricated sensations that i have lugged with me across the ocean from the new york dance scene to Brussels/PARTS. Speaking of which, if you see any Qs instead of As thats why. and i cant find the apostrophe button, clearly.

there is something both delightfully charming and harmlessly irritating  about being surrounded by these young dance students again.  I cannot find fault in their sureness in themselves or there slightly pretentious attitudes, because i recognize the universality of the student experience.  I was one of them too, and enjoyed that spoiled existence of structure, opportunities being given rather than struggled to get, classes instead of work…and though it feels slightly indulgent, I have, like the proverbial worn-in sweater slipped back into this world of continuing class and released the learner within me.  I have to say though, that there is a huge difference, and it is this: I am now so aware of the struggle and challenge that life after school is, that there is no possibility of taking this time for granted.  in this month i have the chance to recreate myself into whatever kind of student i wish to be, because no one knows me here-my faults or my strengths .  I cross my synapses and wish to live- This i do solemnly promise: I will do my best  to withhold judgement, soak up what is given, participate to the fullest, be brave but humorous and respond with a critical, yet compassionate mind.
