Oh boy.. it’s already June and I’ve only managed to cheek in to this poor blog a grand total of 4 times!
So much has been going on in my pole life, work life and personal life lately. I’ve had so much I wanted to say and share but so little energy. (I won’t say I didn’t have time, because we all have the same number of hours in the day, and I believe that we make time for our priorities… so if you didn’t do something, it just wasn’t really a priority of yours.)
But to be honest, it’s been tough trying to figure out what’s appropriate to talk about over here now.
There have been times I’ve felt excited, frustrated, ecstatic, bewildered, etc, but I couldn’t tell if they were things I should have been sharing outside of the studio walls.
And when in doubt, say nothing, right? So I did.
I was even approached as a blogger to review online lessons by a pole dancer I really admire and whom I would love to learn from… I really wanted to do it, but it wouldn’t have been a good idea so I heaved a big sigh and wistfully decided.
At times like that, I wondered if I’ll still be able to blog as freely as I always have, and I still don’t really have the answer yet…
What I do know, is that I’ve really enjoyed teaching and that I’ve been learning an incredible amount in a very short time!
I’ve been teaching some hen’s parties, trial classes, and I just taught my first full term of Beginner Strip and Lap Dance. And you know how much I love Slap, so teaching it has been such a pleasure as well!
Funnily enough, when I first joined Bobbi’s Pole Studio as a student 4.5 years ago, the first-ever Slap routine I learned was ‘If’ by Janet Jackson, and I taught the very same routine this term!
So it was twice as special to me. :)
Also, I’ve been incredibly blessed to have fabulous students who actually continued showing up week after week, and were a dream to teach.
Sure, you say.. all teachers say their students are awesome… Um, not really.
Teaching aside, I’ve been a student long enough to know that some girls can be downright mean, difficult, and even disruptive. Occasionally in the middle of class! I’ve even heard horror stories about students who’ve told teachers to their face that they didn’t think they were good enough to be teaching them!
So yes, I’m very thankful that my first batch of students were all lovely! And sexy. And Fabulous!
