The Sunny Set #270

When my toes start tapping, I start smiling. Dancing brings me a tremendous amount of happiness; ballet, ballroom, or even the awkward freestyle dancing that always happens when “Shout” is played at a wedding. I come from a family of dancers; my dad would dance with me when I was a little girl and he can still dance the swing like no other. Dancing will always bring me bliss, as it does for so many others.
My sorority recently went out to a restaurant where there just so happened to be a salsa club. I could hardly sit through dinner; I was so anxious to get out on the dance floor! We eventually did, and we had so much fun laughing and dancing to the live band. Suddenly, a less-than-tall man approached me and asked me to dance; and boy, could he! We salsa danced for a good long while and the feeling was absolutely exhilarating.
That is why I want to officially complete Sunny Set…
#270: Dance at a salsa club.
This time I want to do it officially and plan ahead—and go with a dance partner that I actually know beforehand. I’m so excited to head back and get on the dance floor. Maybe I’ll even learn some new moves.
Get on your dancing shoes this week and have some fun!
Keep shining,
The Sunny Girl

  1. My 5 Daily Gratitudes:

    1. A kind TA: Considering how malicious the professor is, it is so nice to have a sweet and bubbly TA who actually treats us kindly. In case you couldn’t tell, I have the professor from hell; he literally makes me want to cry in class.

    2. Helping a stranger: A new student asked me for help and it felt great to be of assistance.

    3. Junk TV: Sometimes mind-numbingly bad acting can de-stress a day.

    4. Sushi: It’s my new thing! I haven’t worked my way up to the raw fish, but I do love a soft shell crab roll!

    5. Someone to comfort me: I’ve had a tough time adjusting—class scheduling has been a nightmare. It’s been so reassuring to have people who are there for me.
