Yesterday my friend, Alexa, took me out for my Christmas present. I didn’t know where we were going but I had a pretty good feeling. You see, last year we were talking about how nice it would be to see the Nutcracker and since her mom works for the National Ballet she could get cheaper tickets and good seats and stuff. Evidently we never got around to seeing it last year so when she called and told me to clear my schedule on the evening of the 18th because we were going to be seeing something I wavered for a little but finally figured out what we were doing.

So last night we got dressed up and went to the Four Seasons centre downtown and I was treated to a lovely performance of the Nutcracker. It’s such a beautiful ballet and it’s great because there are so many adorable students of NBS in the performances. The little lambs and mice are pretty much the cutest things you will ever lay your eyes on. The principal dancers are so incredibly beautiful and graceful, they make it hard for you to believe that they’re human beings. Watching the Nutcracker again just reminded me of how badly myself (and every other 5 year old girl who has ever seen the Nutcracker) wanted to grow up to be the Sugarplum Fairy at some point in their lives.


All in all, the ballet was beautiful and I kind of, really, want to see more ballets. I just find them so fascinating! After seeing the ballet last night also really want to watch the straight-to-video Center Stage because it’s surprisingly great. I remember watching that movie at sleepovers when I was younger and getting all embarrassed at the sex scene. haha. Good times. 

Also, it’s crazy snowing outside! I woke up this morning to a blustery blizzard and I took some pictures: 



I think that, at this rate, we might, just maybe, have a white Christmas.
