Penny for my thoughts…

Lately there’s been a multitude of thoughts all crowding in my head, occupying whatever brain space that I have left…which is usually not much after work. By the time I shut down my office computer at the end of the day, the one in my head automatically switches off too. Usually I look forward to the end of the day, cos that means I can meet Tien Yew and we can go for dance. Dance had always been a way for me to relax and have fun after a taxing work day…but lately, I’ve been feeling more stress over dance than at work.

With the spate of training due to the string of performances over the past weeks, we’ve almost reached the brink of exhaustion. Working in the day and dancing at night, coupled with insufficient sleep and aching feet/muscles has taken its toil on both of us. Not to mention we argue over dance and that hardly helps. Tien Yew had already overstretched his arm from our last competition and with the continuous training, he hardly has time to rest it. And he refuses to tell me when it hurts, cos he doesn’t want to worry and disappoint me, but when I find out, I’m even more upset because he is definitely more important to me than dance.

As the months and days fly by, the thought of him going away next year, is always there at the back of my mind. It looms closer each day and the reality of it is starting to sink into me….Today is probably one of those melancholic days…
