too kool for skool

The first day of school was almost like christmas for me growing up. I had planned my "first day of school outfit" (and embarrassed to admit, every outfit for the first two weeks). I had new backstreet boys folders, squeaky white tennis shoes, and a new jansport back pack. My hair all curled and I'd go skipping away to the bus stop...

Not this year.

This year Broc and I didn't know our class schedules until 11pm the night before. I walked out the door in the first shirt I saw hanging up and all I had was a pen buried deep down in my purse that I had to dig for in every class. Spending money on text books instead of new overalls and dr. martins has not been an easy transition for me over the years.

Nonetheless, we are grateful to be back in the swing of things. Didn't you know my favorite thing to do at night is homework?? Hopefully you can taste the sarcasm. That is why I am writing on this blog and procrastinating studying for Art History (which I believe will be the death of me). But I justify it with this quote... "the work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life". Okay okay so my homework isn't near as bad as Broc's I'll admit.

Here is our first night back to studying...

I also procrastinate by eating sandwiches

Okay Broc just might freak if he looks up from his book and sees me blogging so I'm just going to go to the kitchen and peel my hard boiled egg, maybe edit a few pictures on photoshop and then attempt to start studying. promise.

Meet the Fam Bam

For those who don't know, I have a family named Kalamity.
There are eleven ridiculously talented lady sisters
two incredibly sick brothers
and one hot mama Tia.
I consider us blood related because of all the blood, sweat, and tears that we leave on the Vault floor in those 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. practices.

We try our hardest to"leave a mark and make it dark"

When Kalamity first started 4 years ago it seemed quite impossible at the beginning to think that we could ever make a difference with just a few girls, some converse shoes and a stereo.
We started in a room at Golds Gym, moved (and got kicked out) from 3 different studios and 2 different garages.
It seemed impossible to even get enough viewers (beside just our families) to put on a whole concert.
It seemed impossible to raise enough money to help our sista Tif battle through cancer.
It all just seemed quite impossible.
But...

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."
David Beckham

We now have raised over $20,000 for families in need

We have a home, "The Vault"

We've put on multiple concerts with packed audiences

We are dancing with Utah's top 8 dance companies next week in SLC

Impossible is nothing for Kalamity.
