    Always Wished To Be A Ballerina

    I know that I am never going to be able to dance ballet again. Since my surgery on my knee, I know that I will never be able to dance again. I miss Ballet, I miss tap. I miss Jazz. I was suppose to start on Pointe but because of my slip and fall, I never got to do it.

    I danced since I was little till my first year

    of college. Because I needed to concentrate on my education first, I quit ballet. During my college days, my aunts and uncles complained (even got mad) at me for being so thin and even compared me to my nieces who were more on the meatier side. So, just to shut them up, I...
