Most college students go to school Fall and Spring, and kick back in the summer. Well, I am not like most students. I am going to summer school full time, dancing, and working. Which is a great thing because I stay busy and accomplish a lot, but sometimes I get so caught up in what I am doing that I forget to look at the beauty that surrounds me...

I forget all the little things are the big things

When times get hard, get away from the lights and look up.

"Your soul and mind is what you are moving in actuality and your body just fallows. Movement is just movement if you are not moving with your soul and stretching your mind."- Sara Cynthia Johnson

I think that sometimes as dancers we tend to get caught up in what our body is doing, and forget that the purpose of our movement is to enrich our souls and enlighten understanding.


My father is visiting from Germany; his name is Fabio (No, that’s not a joke that really is his name.) Our family struggled for many reasons; I won't go into details, which lead to my parents’ divorce. After the divorce I rarely saw my dad, which I always thought of as a good thing. I understood that the separation on my parents was the best for the family. A couple of months ago, around January, it hit me. I missed my dad, and our broken relationship was hurting me in ways that I wasn't even aware of. He came to the U.S to visit in February, and we talked. We really communicated, for the first time in years, this talk was the beginning of the restoration of a bond that had long been broken. I finally felt like I had a father who loved me, and accepted me for who I am. All it took was communication. Communication is essential for any type of relationship, and I am so glad to have finally found that with my dad. He is currently visiting again, like I mentioned earlier, and things are better. He lives thousands of miles away, but we email back and forth and talk when we can. Morale of the story: Don't go through life burning bridges, and carrying the heavy baggage of broken relationships. There is always hope; relationship can be restored with communication and effort. Just try.

Blogging world, here I come!

Hello fellow readers!!
My name is Sandra Viviana Vega, and this is my very first blog!
I am overwhelmed with excitement. I have always wanted to have a blog, but have failed to do so in the past because I was scared. Mostly fearing that I didn't have anything worth writing about, but life has been good to me and I learn so much every day. So I thought to myself....why not share the wealth?
