I also watched a movie, I hadn't been to cinema for sooooo long! The movie is "Echange de Princesse", about the war between France and Spain in the 18th century and how exchanging princesses of the two countries calmed the tension. The scenes were at Versailles, after all these years I am still a big fan of this castle. Absolutely enjoyed it and how funny that I like French history so much now.
I am not sure that this one hour was worth-spending on choosing fruits. However I was proud of what I got them. These are my favorite fruits! Hopefully my friends enjoyed them.
I am also very impressed by how nervous I got for minor challenges. Here's the story, yesterday night, I learnt that I had to do a variation full out at 9am in the studio. This is extremely early because that means I'd have to arrive at the Opera ideally 2 hours ahead to get myself warmed-up, and I had a performance yesterday evening. I got so nervous that I went home right after I finished my part (I missed watching the Act 3 danced by a guest artist), did my stretching and cool down and went to bed, set my alarm for 6 am. However I got so nervous that I didn't sleep well at all. This morning when I got up, I received a message saying that we had to cancel the appointment at 9am. Of course this is not great for me, but it let me see how I reacted to small challenges like this: I easily get so nervous and can't fall asleep. I should do better next time, but how? We will always react to situations, perhaps I should just accept the emotions and feelings and concentrate on what I can and should do.
Happy New Year!
