    So far, this process has been a huge challenge mentally!!!!! I’m learning that I can’t be so inverted. I need to allow myself to be somewhat vulnerable to the choreographers, dancers, and environment in order to grow. I have also learned that if you wake up and you think your hair looks cute, you should probably still do it or put something in it to maintain the look, that way it doesn’t look like you have a mop on your head by the end of the day!!!!! Hahaha.

    2 words "The Frug"......GENIUS!

    It's actually Matt Dorane (sp?). I like to watch the auditions after the top 20 is announced. Matt actually, made the top 20.

    Mark is one of my top guys so far. Too bad they didn't show us more of him until the end when he was fighting for his life. Loved his performance of
    "Bohemien Rhapsody", he was fun and didn't pressure out like most of the other dancers. Also he is really cute : )

    Yay! He's my favorite guy in the competition right now, he seems really humble and talented. He must've trained a lot for that performance from the time Mia Michaels said it was up to him to "bring it to the next level". And he did!
