Somebody has a case of the Mondays...

Yeah, that'd be me. Hate Monday.

My word of the day today is gumption. I definitely could've used some more gumption this weekend. It was a great weekend, but not nearly as productive as it needed to be. My apartment is still a mess but that's okay. I have epic amounts of serious hardcore cleaning to do before the Halloween part on Saturday anyway.

I did two sessions of flying on Sunday, with a lovely brunch with EB's mom, aunt, and cousin in between. One of these days I'm going to learn that flying twice in one day is not a great idea. I was doing a really good job of my set-split in the morning, but I got all "splitted out" by the evening and bad habits started creeping back. It's okay though, because I feel much better about it than I did last week. Also, I nailed my back-end whip and even caught it! That trick was my nemesis with how badly it destroyed my shoulders two weeks ago, and I feel like I've finally conquered it. However, in the process of conquering it, my hands ripped very badly. It was the first time I've had an actual bleeder. It was shocking, and painful. Johann taped me up so I could do the last catch and I got it. I think the anti-bacterial spray Izzy attacked me with administered was probably the worst pain of my life. That or the scalding hot faucet in the ladies restroom. True story.

Oh, but the theme for our IFW? "Freaks and Geeks." I have no idea what that means, only that it has nothing to do with the TV show. Any idea what I should wear as a costume? Keep in mind I need to be able to fly in it. Please help because I'm clueless!

Saturday I finally had the most incredible massage! I am in love with Thai massage! Nikki did a fantastic fantastic job. It was like yoga but without any of the work, only the relaxing part of it. I feel so much more open, and I think my body will feel much better once it stops dying from yesterday.

Today, I am super cranky and upset. I went to give blood, but the Red Cross was running so far behind that I couldn't wait for them to catch up with my appointment. So I wasted like an hour of my time and didn't even get to save lives. Also, I read some Cirque du Soleil rumors that I'm pretty sure are true, and therefore make me pretty heartbroken. In like a stupidly childish way. And I just want to go home and be a baby about it, but I have to do DSP stuff at UConn. It's probably better that I don't go home because the state of my apartment would just make me more upset. And I would be home and unproductive and that would make me even more upset. Ugh, I hate feeling like this so much. I need to go cry and scream and punch things... I just have no time to do that. :( Later, skaterz.

Gumption is a great word. I use it a lot when I watch the movie The Holiday.

Cirque rumors? Do share, at least in a pm? pretty please!

I should really incorporate more of the words from my word-a-day calendar into my vocabulary.

I sent you a message.
Oct. 27th, 2008 07:52 pm (UTC)
Which Cirque rumors, that Justin Sullivan will be leaving? I'm really hoping he'll last until May, I really wanted to see him again.
Oct. 27th, 2008 07:56 pm (UTC)
I really did, too. Cirque Tribune kind of confirmed my concerns I had before looking at the forum today. I'll see if he says anything when I hear from him.
Oct. 27th, 2008 09:45 pm (UTC)
You know him?
Oct. 28th, 2008 05:12 am (UTC)
We're not BFFs or anything, but yes, I know him.
Oct. 28th, 2008 06:43 pm (UTC)
Wow, that's really cool. How'd you meet him?
Oct. 27th, 2008 08:11 pm (UTC)
i think i forgot to tell you this yesturday but during the second class when you were doing your splits and stuff theresa and i were marveling at you and how you transformed each trick youve done to perfection. and we were very proud. :) it was a lovely conversation! and i thought you should know :)

Oct. 27th, 2008 08:17 pm (UTC)
OMG really?? That seriously brings happy tears to my eyes instead of the angry heartbroken ones I've been fighting for the past hour. Thank you for telling me that! *hugs*
Oct. 27th, 2008 08:20 pm (UTC)
really really!
haha i thought youd appreciate it in your current state :) im glad it brightened your day! its so true too.
*hugs back!*

I am really proud of the progress you've made! I am getting so excited for your recital, sounds like you're going to give everyone a great show. :)

Now can we please focus on the rest of the good stuff, like the awesomeness that is going to be your party this weekend?? I demand an immediate reduction in negativity and an immediate increase in cupcakes.
Oct. 27th, 2008 08:27 pm (UTC)
January 25th will be my next one. Imagine the progress I'll make by then! I hope everyone knows they're only seeing me do two tricks, one of which will most likely be the one that's already posted on facebook. I worry I'm making everyone drive really far for something silly...
Oct. 27th, 2008 08:42 pm (UTC)
Are you kidding?? I couldn't even sit on a trapeze without being scared out of my mind. You are kind of my hero. <3

I have January 25 on my calendar.

Makes me nervous when people have such high expectations. I'd rather them come in with low expectations and be blown away than potentially disappointed.
Oct. 27th, 2008 09:21 pm (UTC)
I totally would've killed someone at Red Cross.
You're donating not only your BLOOD
but your TIME
and they're being inconsiderate.

Pfft I say.
Oct. 28th, 2008 05:09 am (UTC)
At least they called me and apologized profusely. Then I felt kind of bad for being a bitch, but not really.
