An opportunity from my mom’s neighborhood socializing

I was quieter than I am now when I was a kid. At school, I absolutely did not speak during lessons.  When we were asked “Do you understand this problem?”, even if knew, I thought “If I’m wrong, I don’t want to make a mistake,” and I would look down to ensure I would not be called on. I think that maybe I didn’t want to be seen as inferior by other people there.

However, I did like soccer and playing with friends outside, and I did jump rope and double dutch very often. Come to think of it, when I was in first grade, I went up to the horizontal bar during break time, and the female deputy teacher started calling out “Look, look!”, because I’d done a flip for everyone to see (laughs).

I started dancing when I was in kindergarten. The opportunity came from my mom socializing in the neighborhood (laughs). All the mothers had good, friendly relationships with each other and suggested “Why don’t the kids all try it together?”. Since I have no memory of announcing my own intention to starting dancing, I’m guessing that was the beginning of it.

hallihallohallöchen. die new era x halligalli snapback, auf der vorne "chg" draufsteht scheint es ja im shop nicht mehr zu geben. hast du vielleicht ne ahnung, ob man trotzdem noch irgendwie an die rankommen kann? ich bin echt verzweifelt gerade, weil ich die schon immer gern haben wollte, aber es komplett an mir vorbeigegangen ist, dass man die kaufen konnte 🙈

Nee, hab leider keine Idee :(
Außer vielleicht wenn einer sie verkaufen würde. Hast du schon mal auf Ebay gesucht?
Oder schreib doch mal hin und frag nach, ob sie noch welche haben 😊💙
