Here's the packing post I promised. It's not much but you can see how I prepare to go away and maybe get a few ideas of what you might want to bring along on your trips to your intensives.
We have designated a whole room in our house to packing (it doesn't have much in it anyway). Here are some pics.
Interesting things that I'm packing:
Straws-in case the cafeteria doesn't have any (it didn't last year and it's much more pleasant to drink through a straw)
Goodies for my new friends
Books-in case I don't feel like socializing
Mini fridge-5 weeks is a long time and I like my cheese for a snack–besides, it'll keep my water cold too
I just thought you might find that interesting. Of course I'm also packing the usual–sheets, all my leotards, extra pointe shoes (5 pairs to be exact but I don't think I'll go through them all), all my bows, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, etc, etc.
Well, that's all for now, I'll see you on Sunday before I leave.
