  • The Importance Of Ballet

    men can usually get away with starting at a later age, say 12 to 14 or even a couple years more. I started, from scratch, when I was 18 years old, or roughly five and a half years ago. I had to learn everything about ballet in a much more condensed amount of time relative to the people who started a decade before me. My brain was being overloaded with information, terminology, etiquette and everything I had missed in one 's primary years. I was in my junior year in high school when my friend told me to take dance as an elective.

I couldn 't do anything, I couldn 't even coordinate my arms and legs, but I loved it. I graduated that year, with realistically no training, and decided to go to a small studio. It was here that I realized that I wanted to be a professional ballet dancer. I saw this precipice of a goal and saw where I was, and I had no idea how to get there, but I didn 't care because I knew I was willing to do whatever it took. I wrote an essay that year, of my own accord; “I have only been dancing 10 months, and have come a long way. But not enough. There are probably thousands of guys out there, that may think the same, they want to be the best, or they will be the best. Or not, maybe…

  • The Pros And Cons Of The Hebrew Bible

    A few different things go into this process. One of the things contributing to a book’s status as canon, is if it is developed over centuries, with multiple different versions of the texts (possibly, translated to different languages as well). Another trait of a work that is regarded as canon is that it is referenced back to as the “standard” in it’s field.
