Thank you! I’m absolutely terrible at keeping up with submissions, gah. There’s like, six submissions right now that I haven’t dealt with and some are REALLY old. But I’m glad you like the blog!
oh my gosh I have like 10 submissions that I haven’t dealt with. Sorry guyyssss!
Wow guys I’m sorry that I’m not making your problem submissions. They are all in my inbox don’t worry!!! The next time I remember I will make them I promise!
spjflightsoffantasy asked: I was just reading through some of your posts from like a month ago and I noticed that you listed the exams you did... I also know that you're from Canada like me, so I was just curious which association you do your medal tests with? I'm with BATD, and I didn't recognize the names of your exams (scottish award 5, 6, etc.), so it made me curious. Also I hope to be a judge one day so I figure I should know everything I can about everything :P
I do SDTA! :)
you-will-have-abs asked: Where in British Columbia are you in? I live in beautiful BC too!
I live on the island! :)
so-much-four-foreva-and-always asked: I think it's so cool that you dance, did you go to canadians? & where are you from :P
I actually don’t compete, I just dance recreationally :) And, I’m from British Columbia!
Anonymous asked: Are there many different highland dance styles? We're all doing the same dances aren't we? I don't see how any differences could be large enough to have completely different 'highland dance problems'... but maybe I'm just a stuck up SOBHD dancer XD
I’m not really sure. I’m not familiar with other types than my own, but I agree, I don’t see how they could be that completely different.
Anonymous asked: hey, i was wondering if you could please change your blog to SOBdanceproblems. Because i do NZAHD and some of the stuff you post is not relevant and kind of offensive to other highland dance styles....
Sorry, I’m not going to change the name of the blog. All types are welcome to submit. If you have problems specific to your type I will gladly post them. I’m not going to limit the submissions. Just because it’s not relevent to you doesn’t mean it’s not relevent to others. And to be honest, I don’t see how it could be offensive. It’s not like I ever said it was for just a certain type. The only reason it’s focussed on a certain type is that those are the only submissions I get! If you want to submit problems “relevent” to your type to help balance out the blog, I will gladly post them. But I will not change the blog name. If you are that uncomfortable with the blog, don’t look at it.
I did OKAY on my dance exams. I got Commended on all of them. If you don’t know the scale, it goes
Pass Pass Plus Commended Commended Plus Highly Commended
Pass is the lowest. So Commended is just like blah. Okay, but not great. Basically a B.
My favourite comment from the judge was “Good try” on my JL Mackenzie.
(I mean that sarcastically)
ps I’ll get to the submissions in my mailbox soon, I promise!
