Music Major: shut up. what time is this in?
Irish Dancer: umm, it can be 4/4 at different tempos or 3/4 or 6/8.
Music Major: but which one are you talking about?

the thing is, part of the reason I do Irish dance is because it’s the only enjoyable form of exercise that I’ve found so far. I used to dance so I could get more fit. and now that I’ve gotten good enough at dancing, the tables have turned and I have to get more fit so I can dance. I am not unwilling. I will find a way to motivate myself through this damn HIIT, but it’s super annoying that I can’t progress and improve the fun part without first improving my stamina the un-fun way.
