The Locking Life of Lil b

Locking lifestyle

July was insanity mode!

Wooo man…July went better than I had expected! This was my major plans for July:

7/9 Weekend: Bakersfield trip (plan fell thru)

7/17 Weekend: LA for the Homeland Battle

7/24 Weekend: New York for Step Ya Game Up

7/31 Weekend: Vegas for Hip Hop International

then August has been like this so far:

8/7 Weekend: LA trip for my Cousin’s baby Shower

8/14 Weekend: LA for Funny Bones Crew Battles

I left my home in Daly City on 7/22 for my afternoon flight to the NYC! The plan was to be in NYC until the 21st where i’d fly out to Vegas. Of course both trips were for battles! Step ya Game up was in NYC on the 24th and HHI battles were on the 31st.

It’s been an insane month for sure. I haven’t been home during a weekend in SO long. But all of this traveling, entering jams, meeting people..it’s been an AMAZING experience. It makes me feel truly alive, free, and happy to be a dancer. Everywhere I went I kept thinking about how lucky I was to be a dancer. Haruki-san was right…being a dancer will bring me everything I need in life. Traveling also reminded me of the fam back home like Bionic, Ceech, Pharside… traveling around the world to meet, greet, and dance. They pave the road for me to see and I can walk it now that I see it.

I’ve met so many wonderful people. These people make me feel like i’m not alone in this world. Sometimes in the Bay it could be hard to find people with similar points of views on dance related subjects. But as I met more and more people I found that I wasn’t the only one that felt that way and were just as happy to meet me. I get to understand why people from different places dance and what it truly means to them. and i’ve come across a very POWERFUL message that transcends dance, people..words. Hmm…not gonna speak of it now tho. I want my dance to express it before any words come out.

I’m still not back home yet but I don’t exactly yearn to go back home just yet. I love traveling. I believe every dance needs to travel. And it’s not just to meet other people or win jams. That’s the least of what you can get out of it. You’ve also the opportunity to find yourself and reflect on your ongoing journey. Stupid quote from Step up 3d but.. “The journey is more important than the arrival” (or something like that) But it’s definitely true.

Embrace yourself in the moment during your journey and understand the importance of growth within yourself. Then when you’re inspired by others you can easily apply it to yourself in a way that suits YOU!

I’ll go more into detail about every little kick of inspiration in my other posts about each individual event 🙂
