You’d think getting eliminated in the second round out of 3 wouldn’t exactly be called “close”, but damn…I know that if we got past that second round, we’d be getting ready for nationals in Miami right now.
And it kills me everyday.
….in other news, I’m back.
I was 100% certain I wouldn’t even consider doing Zamana again next year. But after this weekend and reflecting on the season as a whole, it is going to be so hard to see myself not on the team next year. I’ve told myself that I should just come back as a tech director, make all the mixes and videos and shit, but somehow right now, that doesn’t seem like enough. Good thing is I have a lot of time to decide. Bad thing is they want to make me captain…
unseenamore asked: This is totes not meant to be creepy, but I can't wait to see you guys at Bollywood America. I'm on Saathiya, and a good portion of my team went down to NNR and absolutely loved you guys. Good luck, I can't wait to see all the UC dance shows I've been hearing so much about
Thanks so much, it means a lot. Yeah dude, west coast teams are bringing it this year.
Twas a good spring break. Definitely not relaxing one bit, but it felt good keeping myself busy. Now back to Irvine for 3 weeks of preparations before Bollywood America. I MISSED MY TEAMMATES. BUT I’LL MISS YOU GUYS BACK HOME TOO :(
^my exact reaction when winning first place at our competition in Delaware. I couldn’t believe it then, and still I am trying to believe it. The only West Coast team, all the way from the other side of the country, after being shatted on at Berkeley, goes to freaking DELAWARE and takes home the championship belt.
And what’s the reward? A BID TO FRICKIN BOLLYWOOD AMERICA, THE NATIONALS OF BOLLYWOOD DANCE.
The weekend was an absolute whirlwind of emotions, an absolute bipolarness that I think only my team can fully understand. The shit we went through to just get on that stage as one team…I can’t even begin to explain. The only thing I can possibly compare this experience to was Sapnay last year, but it was still just soooo much different.
I will admit it, and in the least cockiest way, me and all the Zamana guys were treated like royalty this weekend. Wanted Ashiqz, a team from New York who I used to watch allllll the time on YouTube, knew who I was even before I introduced myself, and eventually gave me the nickname of Jeremy Lin, hence all the stuff on facebook. And after we won, EVERYONE knew us.
I will save you guys the trouble and not elaborate on every single amazing detail of my weekend in Delaware. But I’d be glad to share my story to anyone who wants to know. It was definitely one of the best weekends of my life, and I can’t wait to do it again at Philly in one and a half months.
