Being Green

and I don't mean the environment.

My first show was one of the Big 3 and for that I am grateful. I was given A LOT of advice and tips before I even set foot in rehearsals, yet I still felt like I'd be sent home any day.

I was told not to get caught looking at your watch, crossing your arms or looking bored, not to sit down to watch if I were a swing, and never to ask when we'd be done. I obeyed all of these rules and still got singled out from the choreographer's bullhorn as much as any of the other rookies.

Every ice show I did after that was a piece of cake in comparison. So for that, I was grateful.
