Every week in my home country I go to Zumba which is dancing to music from around the world. It is very active and good for getting fit. I thought I would see Zumba in South America on my trip. However I saw Tango and in Brazil I saw Samba. Today I will being back to my Zumba class. I expect there will be lots of new dances for me to learn since I have been away traveling for one month. Have you expected something and then found something different?

I think this applies to almost everything in life (specially mine). I go off expecting something, and come up with something else. We always expect things to go our way, yet once in a while, life throws us a curve ball. I moved into this job of mine last year expecting a better time considering it's a small company. I just realize I've never been so stressed at work dealing with anything and everything at work.

When I first read Zumba in your discussion, the first thing I thought of was that dancercise class!! We pass by the ladies taking that class at the Y, but I had never looked it up officially . . . apparently it is a fitness program (rather than a dance form) - using Latin dance moves and aerobics! So you did see where Zumba was inspired from!! In a similar sense . . . I am a figure skater and I dabbled with ice dancing a bit (afterall, I did enjoy ballroom dancing). Believe me, the steps are completely different - even though the music/beat is the same. The steps obviously had to be translated into ice glides and turns - all "inspired" by ballroom dancing. But that threw me off. Particularly Swing . . . I didn't feel the ballroom "Swing" at all!!

I heard about Zumba, it has samba infused on some steps. Also, every travel is unique in every place we visited. And I think that is exciting and at the same time enlightening. Like you said you might get what you are not expecting for.

Everywhere in the world have different cultures and traditions when the time you visit one of each country expect alot of difference. In our country the people mostly like CHA-CHA but celebrities dance it mixed with zumba and samba.

I've been into a lot of disappointments because I've expected something which came out differently. Now I just don't put my hopes too high so that if what I want or expect turn out negative, it doesn't hurt that much. But there were also times when things were better than what I've expected, and that's something that made me feel good.

I think that it's great that we try things out, whether they're what we expected them to be or not. Trying new things is really important in life or we would just end up in a rut and not knowing what we could do about it. I have tried Zumba as well, and it was certainly nothing like I ever expected it to be. I was surprised to find that I loved it, and dance is something that I have never liked in my life before, so finding that I was able to enjoy something like that was a positive point in my life and something that I am glad that I managed to find.

This morning,a best friend of mine left shool to her hometown,which made me very sad.At noon,I found flowers on the tree withered below the dormitory.I simply remember the flowers were in bloom several days ago,when she and I passed the tree.I see the different view with different mind inside.

I think every traveling or every journey has a new experiences. Most of people is learned or expecting something from it. Most of people like to be different and changes to be better. I like to be different too.
