I’m not sure if I mentioned it, but I started a new part time job about a month ago.
It is a type of reception job, which I have done many times before. However, this is a new experience for me because I have never done it before in Germany.
English is my first language, but my German isn’t too bad.
Starting a new job is hard anyway, but I am slowly realising that the place I am working at has a bad atmosphere. Everyone there is unhappy with their jobs and moan a lot.
To top it off though, 3 different people have mentioned that I look timid.
I don’t have very high self-esteem anyway, so this has all left me feeling a bit sad.
Contrary to my last post, I definitely don’t feel like I am making the most of life at the moment.
I definitely consider myself an introvert, and a sensitive one at that, but I feel like I have been doing a good job at my new workplace.
Anyway, what has this got to do with ballet?
Well, I have to say that I am hugely thankful that I have ballet as an escape.
Although I am not taking as many lessons as I would like, the two hours a week that I do have have really saved me.
I really don’t know what I did to escape before my obsession with ballet came to life.
I feel like the whole routine of putting on tights, a leo, and a pair of pink slippers calming.
I know that when I step into the studio we will start with pliés.
I can forget about the day, or week, and concentrate on pointing my toes or maintaining a balance.
This week was a bit of a low for me. But as they say, there are no highs without the lows.
