Wednesday 18 July 2012 - Tall Poppy Syndrome... Here we come again

18 Juillet 2012 , Rédigé par Karine

I was so happy with my unlimited salsa free Monday lessons that I had to tell someone! Curiously enough I didn’t tell my friends, because they are salsa dancers and way more advanced than I am (instructor level for some of them) and they wouldn’t have understood what sort of achievement I have done, except spending a lot of time and money. They don’t get a medal because they run a treadmill twice a week for two years, unless they enter races/competition with proper athletes...Well anyway, I was so happy with it that I couldn’t help tell my morning coffee workmate. And then I looked at me and said “OK now I gonna tell everyone that you are dancing queen... Eh Matt” :S :S :S Meuh non !!! I totally forgot that it is very un-Australian to brag about any sort of achievements, damn it !!! I had to cool it down “No no no no, I am just an intermediate salsa dancer, no need to tell everyone, shhhhhhhhhhh” Well it sounds hypocrite now, sometimes it is good to have a reminder that at the end of day, you are a normal person like everyone else. Welcome to Australia :)
