My first day of ballet the teacher had us doing the kind of stretch where you sit down with your feet touching and knees out to the sides so your knees look like this: < > and the teacher comes over, puts her foot on one of my knees and puts her weight down to the point I thought my leg was going to snap off.

Holy. Fuck.

Personally I loooooooove that stretch. I'm pretty good with it flexibility-wise. What kills me is assisted stretching when you're stretching your legs up straight/overhead, and when you're raising your leg into an arabesque. OWWWW. (And our regular ballet teacher's day job is an Occupational therapist with some Physio too... so she knows how to stretch. >_O)

Eternal Sonata has one of my favorite soundtracks from any video game.
Right up there with Shadow of the Colossus, Bioshock, and Silent Hill.

Oh I love that one! That stretch is how I earned the nickname "Gumby" in theatre camp. I have really flexible legs. Arms, eh. Legs... damn.

To quote my old riding instructor, "You don't learn to ride until you've fallen off and gotten back on again 100 times." Hope the fall didn't get you too discouraged.

Baaaaaaahhhh butterfly....
Worst stretch ever. Well not ever, I'm just terrible at it, as my hips are extremely inflexible and I have no turnout. >.<
I need to start doing that, and/or frog stretches, because I NEED turnout desperately.

Aaaahhhh I love that one! The only ones I can do..well actually, that's a lie. Devant and a la seconde extensions are my worst. I love arabesques and penchees. My teacher told me tonight that she loves seeing my penchee and I felt special.

I actually think that my extensions are only good because I'd practice arabesque all the time in middle school and would always full out stretch when told to. So if you really want to get good at it...just stretch.

Awww, I WISH I could do an arabesque that pretty. I can barely lift my damn leg off the floor. But for butterfly stretches, turnout, extensions to the side, etc., I'm totally fine because I sit cross-legged all the time and have gotten pretty stretchy hip flexors as a result. (Still can't do a Russian split or shouler my leg, though. X_X)

Nah I'm ok, Pam told me to still get it checked out. Walking is a bit awkward and sitting even more so.... but I'll be fine =3

My friend congratulated me after I got up and said "Well done you're officially an equestrian now" cuz it's my first official fall xD (I fell off one when I was young but hardly remember)

The poor thing got spooked by the dog darting across the ring while in mid canter. He dodged and I slipped right off >.O But I got back on (albeit awkwardly) and trotted him a bit more. But I cantered =D

My ballet teacher praised me for my excellent turn-out. I think it had something to do with me also being in gymnastics at the time.

A bit late but...

Guile's theme is overrated, Ken's is better.
