To Infinity and Beyond

The hopeless romantic that I put to sleep years ago after a parade of pigs and failed relationships tore my outlook on love down to bits has been resurrected since I met Bae. I’ve been swooning over weddings since I was a little girl (I even spent time planning my own to Backstreet Boy, AJ McLean for a while), but when the reality of dating hit hard in my young adulthood, it was like I had a vendetta against the single male population between the ages of 20 – 35.

But I found someone who makes me feel SO cheesy romantic. Gross.

This past weekend was my own Prince Charming’s sister’s wedding, and as my favorite Disnerd couple, their nuptials were quite the magical affair – I definitely felt the love that night.

But… the night didn’t end so magical. A couple of months ago I’m pretty sure I reinjured my left knee, THE same knee that I had ACL reconstructive surgery on back in high school. I was doing a pretty ridiculous plyometric workout and my trainer challenged me to jumping donkey kicks… Youtube it… which is what I should’ve done before attempting, but I just started going at it. Eventually I would land incorrectly during one of them and my knee popped out of place and wouldn’t pop back, but I usually would be able to walk on it and feel better within half an hour. After a few weeks of rest, I decided to get back into training legs, but my knee would slip every once in a while. I didn’t think much of it because my knee’s always done weird things during the time since my surgery. But at Bae’s sister’s wedding, my knee slipped out of place and locked… while dancing. Literally my favorite thing in the world.

I sat, changed into flats, elevated my leg and iced it for about 15 minutes, but the FOMO kicked in when I saw all my friends on the dancefloor without me. And the DJ was just SO GOOD…

so I kept dancing on it

But it was SO worth it!! I ended up not being able to bear any weight on my left leg for the following 3 days and had to use crutches and wasn’t able to sleep well from the knee pain. But hey.. it was a good time.

Moral of the story – never stop dancing.
