This week I:
-Took my first ballroom dancing class in years. It was a basic class and I was afraid it might be too beginner's level for me, but we learned swing and foxtrot, both of which I'd never learned before (although swing is a derivative of jive, which I'm familiar with), and it was so much fun. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy partner dancing! I had an Amazon Local deal that was going to expire if I didn't use it this month, so I'm glad I finally used it, and am looking forward to my twice a week classes. (Surprisingly, we were almost even for the number of men vs number of women, so that was nice!)
-Started my adult literacy volunteer training. Finally! It was our introductory class but we watched an NBC documentary called "A Loss for Words", and you could truly see these adults struggling to learn to read and write. It was inspiring, and really gave me an idea of what I'm getting myself into. I'm more determined than ever to do my part to help eradicate adult illiteracy, and to break the cycle of illiteracy.

-Attended my first Keaton Row social! It was great to finally meet the co-founders and the other people who help with our styling businesses every day. It was also great to be able to discuss how I'm doing (apparently I'm doing better than I thought I was!) and to just hear other people's experiences. I can't wait to keep styling!
