Wednesday 20/04/2011 My Last Day!!!!
This morning, I woke early to try get all my packing done. I didn’t realise it would take me so long. I have too much stuff!!!
I met my parents to say bye, I am on a separate flight to them. I then met Mary Ellen for lunch and we also said our goodbyes. I got 3 separate trains to the airport and busied myself until take off. I watched 4 movies onboard. So I was very entertained. I didn’t sleep but I arrived home at 6.40am, Irish time. Got a lift home and slept my ass off!!!!!
I know I will miss my busy New York lifestyle, but I do feel my body does need a little rest. I am so thankful for all that I have learned and seen over the past three months. It has improved me as an artist, for sure. But I am now aware that the New York scene in dance, is not really my style. I think I have experienced a lot and now can say that the European style suits me a lot better. I will of course visit New York City again in the future but at this moment in my life, I can’t see myself moving there to live indefinitely.
I am thankful I got to perform in the Judson Church and also to perform in the Vagina Monologues. I have learned a lot and am grateful the Irish Arts Council, has given me some funding help to fulfill a lifelong fantasy to visit New York City! I have done it and I am glad!
