My Tumbling Journal.

Hello~

Welcome to my tumblr!

My name is Suzy, and I'm currently 18. I'm working on being a pre-med major, and dance minor in college. You can say I'm a hopeless romantic, and I love to bury myself under hundreds of books. Aside from my love for reading and writing, I also love to dance and spin! I marched with the Santa Clara Vanguard Cadets '12 & '13 and those were some of the best experiences i've ever had. Also, I love music, and have been part of a winter percussion as a bass drummer. I hope to continue my marching career with a few more seasons growing as a percussionist. Aside from the idea that my life revolves around Drum Corps and WGI, I also love Anime, Manga, and conventions. Cosplaying is something I do as well, and I absolutely love it! Candy and macarons are my weakness. And I still have a tendency to feel an Irresistible urge to buy cute stuffed animals when I come across them!

However, of course DCI, WGI, dancing, percussion, Candy, macarons and stuffed animals aren't all I love. I also have a tight knit group of close friends that I unconditionally love... And my family as well... And also my Vanguard family as well. :) I love my families.

If you've made it down to my intro this far.... Haha thanks. I'd just like to say, if you're someone who love DCI or WGI just as much, go audition! Don't hold back because before you know it, your age out year will come around. And I can guarantee you that there's no other experience that can replace Drum corps or WGI. "Sometimes you have to be aggressive when you're fighting for something you want. Not aggressive with other, but with yourself because opportunities don't always come easy."

Aside from that, if you ever need someone to talk to feel free to message me. Message me anything :) i'm open to whatever you feel like saying, or if you feel down or need someone to talk to I'm here. And if you're ever going through a tough time in life, know that you're stronger than you think you are and you'll get through. Always Stay strong through every situation because there's always someone that believes in you :)

Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.

Life lessons and realizations.

Today is one of those days that remind me of how so much can happen in a day. How life has it’s ups and downs, and one moment everything could be going perfectly, and the next moment everything goes wrong. Today reminded me again of how I shouldn’t take things for granted. There are a lot of thing I can never say online, but there are many lesson i’ve learned from these experiences that I think everyone should know. Even with little explanation, and how silly this may sound. I want to say, “make is a habit to never take anything for granted. Never forget to tell people how much you appreciate them for being in your life, and don’t hesitate to tell them how much they mean to you.” My only explanation is that, a death of a friend gave me another wake up call of how life can be so unpredictable. It’s surreal, and I really don’t know what to say.

Went to Dynasty camp with Derek and Maiyi. Spun a 39 inch King Sabre for the first time today! Now I know how it feels to hurt yourself with a sabre, but it honestly looks worse than it is. It doesn’t hurt, but damn Sabre is so fun! I did pretty well for not spinning in one year and spinning a 39’ sabre for the first time ^^ never knew I could do backhands and hilt quads! :) I guess maybe I should spin with Dynasty this winter? @maiyimaiyi @repeatmyname #sabre #firsttimeeverything #Wgi #guard

Went to Dynasty camp with Derek and Maiyi today! First time spinning a 39 inch King Sabre :D I did pretty good for not spinning guard in a year and never actually spinning a 39’ before.
