OMG I finally got through my flist and my email and ugh. Going a weekend without the internet is crazy! I spent all weekend in Boston (Jason Mraz, Delta Sigma Pi, trapeze) and by the time I got home I was ready to drop. I actually fell asleep last night still half dressed and in a contorted position, lights and TV on, only to wake up at 11 to realize I'd missed Brothers & Sisters, again at 4AM with a stiff neck and sore throat, and at 6AM to realize I was so not in any shape to be at work at 9. I'm at work now, but still feeling pretty meh. Hopefully with a good night's sleep tonight I can feel back to my normal self.

Trapeze went better this week than last. I didn't wind up in tears at any point, but my shoulders are still killing me from falling out of my straddle whip. Maybe the massage I was supposed to have on Thursday (but had to reschedule because I got still at work until 8:15pm) would've helped them. I guess I'll find out on Saturday, assuming I don't have to reschedule again. My swing still struggles, but maybe struggles a little less each week. Now my goal is to get my back-end split into some kind of shape for the show. It's so infuriating that I struggle so much with this trick because my set split is just fine! (Those are just random youtube videos, btw, not me. Just thought I'd give you a point of reference so you'd know what I was talking about.) I did manage one decent catch of it, but it's still ugly. I really need to make a commitment to stretching this week. Theresa says it will help my split and Johann says stretching will help my shoulders. Last week I was just super exhausted from life, but this week I need to recommit to physical fitness.

Oh, but OMG huge victory of the day, I took off without a belt hold!! Like all day! Once I didn't even have a tummy hold! I didn't even need to be brave and ask to not have one (though I was totally going to!) Kaz just kind of didn't hold on. I was like, "OMG, what are you doing?! Where's my belt hold?! ACCKKK!" And he was just like, "You're okay." It was so scary, but I'm glad I did it! My take off is crap again now, but I'll get better. Hopefully we'll be back on rig 1 again next week, not a fan of rig 2. But I am so lucky to have amazing teachers who have faith in me even when I don't. And who keep giving me wonderful pointers and advice, now I just need to listen to it!

Also I am lucky to have super awesome wonderful amazing lovely girls in my class who I heart to death. Aren't we adorable?



I hope they can all sign up for the next IFW. Yes, I'm crazy. I signed up for the other one even though I'll be in the UK for two weeks. And then will have no idea what kind of schedule I'll have after that. I just want to keep our group together for as long as possible. I'm scared to go look at my credit card statement, but it's probably a good idea. Heh. Later, skaterz.

Actually yes, that's the one! XD I'm on the shore though, about a half hour from New Haven, so it's pretty far, but I really like the idea of a set facility, and, based on their website alone, they look REALLY pulled together, which is important to me. The last people flaked out on me at the last minute due to their own scheduling error, and it looks like I wouldn't have to deal with that there.

Would one of the trapeze schools in NYC be easier for you?

It would be about equal times, but about twice the difficulty in terms of the drive. I'd much rather go north and south than have to go towards New York.
