I have decided to start dancing and writing again, in that order.I haven't danced for about 3 1/2 years. I have pondered it in passing, as the money is excellent, but I just didn't feel like I was ready to be in an environment in which temptation is so rampant. Not like I'm eager to be thrown in the lion's den, but I feel my practice is strong enough that I won't be tempted to take anything besides cannabis. Plus, I now feel happy enough from my practice that I don't think the negative energy there will affect me at all. I probably won't even notice it. The creative soul in me is actually looking forward to once again working in an establishment which is semi-reputable and not a hair towards respectable at all. Waiting tables is a great job for those who are constrained by many societal rules and enjoys routine, but I prefer a place more entertaining to spend my time. A strip joint is nothing if not entertaining. On a side note, I was assured by the hiring manager, Richard, that he is quite proud of his establishment. I will be determining on Tues. whether or not this pride is merited.
