Now it is totally different, I accepted that fact that I came to France alone and will not celebrate all those festivals with my family. For instance, Christmas! For me it is just another day with performance at Bastille.
And to be honest, having celebrated new year and Christmas once in France with some friends, I didn't quite enjoy it. I don't think I enjoy parties much. However, I just think of my family even more on these days.
Even my business school is closed for holidays. I have much less homework to do since a week. I put back all my energy into ballet and start preparing for the Concours de Promotion.
My private coach at the Opera once told me: "Remember that you sacrificed a lot for ballet. You came all over from Hong Kong for it, you left your family and your hometown for it, so now make it count! Show the world that you didn't sacrifice all these for nothing!"
He is certainly right, this should become a motivation, my force.
Nevertheless, Merry Christmas everyone! Enjoy your family and beloved ones' company.
With my best wishes,
