Every year my school hosts an intercollegiate Filipino cultural dance competition called Battle of the Bamboo. This year was my first time ever sitting in the audience not as a performer. It's a bizarre feeling not knowing everyone there, just being an outsider looking in with an insider's perspective and what I'd like to think is a little more wisdom.
It makes me realize that I'm getting old.
It is a nice feeling being able to sit in and just enjoy the show without having to worry about anything else, but I would love to get the chance to dance again.
