I wish I had dancing in my life when i was growing up to be able to do this kind of thing. or just a dance partner, or a friend willing to practice. It reminds me of the movie silver linings playbook as they try and work towards something that starts off as a goal that is just meaningful to one partner, but grows to be vital for both as they get closer to the date of their tournament.
Just a few thoughts for now, but in short, sometimes you just don’t mind doing things, however boring or repetitive or unexciting and pointless it seems, because it only matters who you are doing it with, that you are spending time with said person (family, friend, love, awkward in between, etc.). Indeed, time is a most valuable thing.
