    I did it throughout middle school and high school (all the way to pointe of course) along with tap, jazz, etc.
    Moved to a school where no studios were around so I had to drop it for two years.
    Picked up it again since I transferred to a new location. Now I just take adult classes for fun. I miss pointe though.

    When it's warm I work on my car. In the winter I basically sleep in the day and go out to the bars at night.

    Play piano. Read books, mostly old school sci-fi (currently working on the Foundation trilogy). Watch cheesy horror movies (Creature from the Haunted Sea, ftw) and in the summer, lots of swimming. Its hot here in Vegas.
