I Got Cultured

I was starting to panic because I was not sure how I was going to fulfill going to the circus for two reasons. 1) I am on a college student's budget and 2) there is no Ringling Brothers Circus on the west coast this year. But by keeping my eyes open, and having an addiction to Sudoku in the school newspaper, I grabbed a Daily Universe on Tuesday to see the headline of the day was "Circus at BYU Today." By golly, I was going to be able to go to the circus! So I made my way over to the HFAC, got the cheapest ticket available, and after classes on Tuesday, I went to the circus! Granted there were no animals, it was more acrobatic, but it was so good! This particular group is called Circo Aereo and they came all the way from Finland! So not only did I go to the circus, I saw a foreign circus. How much more cultured can you get.

[This is the group and one of the acts they did, it was actually really cool cause she could roll all over the floor and full on dance with them balancing those canes on her]

I Made It To Vegas!

That is a TOTAL lie - but I did audition! Emmas came with me and we hit up the Salt Lake City auditions of Season 8 for So You Think You Can Dance. It is a long process of auditions. The first day we were there from 6:30am to 7:30pm. LONG DAY. But the good news: we both made it through the first two rounds of cuts. Which meant we got to improv in front of the judges (Mary, Nigel, and the creator of the Pussycat Dolls) but we both got cut at that point. It was a way fun experience, but let's just hope this week doesn't kill my grades. Oh and since no cameras or anything were allowed (we weren't even allowed to keep our numbers) this is the only picture I have, and it is from the Mix 107.9 website. Overall great experience, probably won't go again, but now I know the REAL audition process!
