Well, I made a couple decisions today. First, I’ve decided to drop Japanese. The time I spend preparing is time I could be, oh, sleeping or eating. I just can’t imagine that I’ll catch up and be able to stay caught up given how busy my semester will be. And I had trouble sleeping last night, in part because I was stressed about the class. It’s disappointing. I’ve looked forward to this for a few years and I was really beginning to enjoy my instructors and classmates. But I don’t think it’s worth the stress, in the long run.
My other decision, one I’m happy about, was to join the IU Swing Club this evening. I’ll be taking lessons the remainder of the semester and I’m looking forward to it. I think dancing will give me an outlet for stress. We just signed up tonight and watched the experienced folk take the floor, although we did learn a simple Charleston line, which was fun. Next week, East Coast Swing.
