    Some of the oldest beads and pendants in our collection, likely made in Carthage by core forming. Pendants with men’s heads, featuring curly hair and beards (like the one on the far left) are by far the bestknown work of the Phoenicians, who also crafted pendants with rams’ heads (far right) as well as cylindrical barrel beads with protruding eyes that are thought to have been used as protection against the “evil eye” (second from left). http://ift.tt/1vPbisA

  11. Anonymous said: I had a really bad day at dance class yesterday. Everything i did was all wrong and it made me feel really bad; like i was proving the people who told me i couldn't do it right. Has that ever happened to you? How did you get over it?



    i have had more of those days than i can count, hun, and i am so sorry you had such a bad class! but don’t lose faith - literally every single dancer in the history of any type of dance ever has had off days, no matter who they are :) 
    listen, i know this is really difficult to convince yourself (god knows i am still working on it to this day), but in class the only person you ever have to prove anything to is yourself. honestly. yes, if you’re in a company or are competing or have casting coming up, of course you are trying to prove to your teachers that you can do things! i completely understand that, but if you’re trying to prove this to your teacher, just remember that they see you in class every single day, and they have seen you at your best as well as your worst. they know what you are capable of, so don’t worry! and in terms of proving to other people in the class that what they have said or are saying about you is false, just forget about it. you are not responsible for others’ opinions about you, and some people are just nasty and tell you things to mess with your head and your confidence! and just by going into class with a cool head and working only for yourself and your own future, you are proving them wrong automatically. because there is no one day that defines if you can or cannot do something right. and that one bad day has no bearing on you as an artist, a performer, or a human being. 
    if i have a particularly bad day, there is a nice little routine i like to do for myself, and i think this would be a lot of help to you dear, because it sounds like your day’s been harsh! when i get home, i take a long hot shower and reflect a bit on things i did during class. first i look at what i did wrong, but not in a “i’m the worst ugh why do i even dance” kind of way, rather in a “well, next time i’ll straighten my knee more” or “i was leaning a bit too far back for those” kind of way. then, i’ll think of the things i did right, and this can be over the course of the whole week and not just that one day. sometimes a good day in class can make you happy for a really long time, and so i’ll think back on some great fondues i did or a really nice pique combination and think something like “oh yeah, i’ve still got it ;)” haha. be a dork. make yourself laugh a bit, and loosen up, no matter how hard it is. and once the shower is over, just let all the worries go down the drain! you are out of class, and you don’t have to think about any of that for the rest of the night! so i’ll usually follow that shower with my favorite pjs, very VERY comfortable socks (important.), a sweater, a hot beverage, and either a good book or one of my favorite (preferably happy or humorous) tv shows. you have to learn to just take away from bad days what you need, and just forget about them. because once they’re over, they are over! and you have the next class to look forward to, and to approach with a fresh mind ready to try your best. and if that class is bad too, just breathe and try again the next time! ballet is dealing with constant disappointment, but remind yourself why you started in the first place and how far you’ve come - you wouldn’t be here today if you gave up every time you had a bad class! you’ve already gotten through this many a time, and you can get through it again! xxx take care, love, and if you need anything my ask box is always always open and i do try to answer as fast as i can! 

    beautiful and great advice that we should all always remember forever :]
