By doing so I was pushed out of my comfort zone to try new activities as well as meet new people with common interest. To this day the friends I met at dance camp and art club are still some of my closest friends. By being pushed into an awkward environment, I learned how to be sociable and gain friends on my own. Being the youngest kid at camp far from home, you have to learn how to grow out of your bubble and approach people. This really helped with my anxiety over the years.
Every night she trained after dance practice without anyone knowing it. The gymnast told her mom they rescheduled their dance hours and the habibs thought she was just cleaning up after them. She became in better shape every time. It was actually happening! Ariana was back!
I kept ignoring any conversation with my friends that related to the dance squad team because I did not want to admit to the insecurities that were running through my mind – I pretended that I didn’t want to be on the dance squad, but deep down inside it is all I thought about. It is all I wanted, and that is what I did. Suddenly, I gathered enough confidence (with a lot of encouragement from my friend Ashley) and told myself I will just try out for the dance squad team. By then, a week had already passed, and the girls who signed up had already learned the choreography. I felt as if I would be too behind, and that I wouldn’t be capable of learning the choreography on time.
And it doesn’t stop there! I also take days to decide if they are good enough to be posted. Another example is trying new dance moves. I have been a ballerina ever since age two, but every time we had to learn a new skill, I wanted to try it on my own first. If I judged that it wasn’t good enough, I wouldn’t do it in front of other people.

I knew that I should get to work on it when I took theatre because stress and nervousness on stage is probably the worst thing I experienced. My teacher took the class through meditation exercises. I did this in middle school but didn’t really feel the effect until I was older how much more helpful it was to me. Learning about the key ways of dealing with my stress really did help a lot. I did lots of meditation at night, especially the night before tests.
I remember trying to ask questions about concepts I did not understand, but she would always say, “What don’t you understand?” This was a frustrating question because I was completely lost and didn’t understand anything about what we were working on. I changed schools for seventh grade and my math teacher tested me on the first day of school. My mom received a phone call from my very concerned math teacher. I had tested at a third grade math level entering the seventh grade. Looking back to those times, I felt very bad about my abilities in school.
L.O Journal Portfolio Task – Physical Education 08 April 2016 – Group Discussion Today in class we were given this assignment and told to choose our own group. I do not feel that excited about doing this assignment because we have already done a similar assignment last year in grade 11. Today we began to brainstorm ideas about what dances we could do, some of which included: Hip-Hop, Irish Dancing, Line Dancing and other various dance styles. I do not think that this assignment would be too difficult but it would have some challenges as every assignment does. Today we managed to brainstorm quite a few ideas so we had many options of dance styles we could choose from.
