So You Think You Can Dance should be renamed “Feel awed and inadequate.”

Seriously. I’m a big So You Think You Can Dance fan, and I just finished watching their Atlanta auditions, and now I am sitting here thinking about how I was whining today about my legs being tired. These people are INSANE. They have muscles where I didn’t even know muscles existed! If I had a quarter of their muscle definition I’d consider myself ripped. (Shows how high my aspirations are, huh?) I am so amazed at some of the talent on the show, though – there are some people who really are extremely gifted (and have impossibly flexible legs that go on for about a million miles). I find it really interesting that SYTYCD Canada had one really amazing season, and then it flopped. We pretty much exhausted all of our dancers in one season. Big cheers for my giant country with a tiny population.

I’ve been really exhausted all day for some reason. I think I didn’t sleep that much on the weekend, and I’ve been pretty busy the last few days and it’s starting to catch up with me, so I’ll probably be passing out once I finish writing this. I had a pretty good weekend – I made dinner with my girls on Saturday night, which was nice, and Sunday I went to Santa Cruz with some of the other interns in my office. I forgot how busy of a beach it is, but it’s fun, though the boardwalk is super overpriced so we didn’t go on any of the rides.

This is only a few of them, but one of my favourite parts about Santa Cruz is the sea lions. There’s this part off the dock where there’s this huge crowd of them, and they just lie around and yelp at the people who come to gawk. They’re really loud, too – you can hear them all the way from the other end of the beach. It was a beautiful day though and I had a good time walking the beach, swimming and just generally hanging out. Any time I’m in the sun, I’m generally pretty happy.

I’m starting to get excited about my trip to Boulder next week – work is flying me out to the Google office there to work for a week! I’ve never been to that area, so I think it’ll be a really cool experience (really, it’s a vacation within a vacation, who am I kidding…) Tons of stuff to do before then, though, so it’s simultaneously exciting and stressful. I really am about to pass out, though, so it’s time for me to hit the sheets.
