7. Would you say that you are obsessed with or addicted to hooping? absolutely obsessed & addicted! (Very Fine line..lol)

8. Have you posted hooping videos? How many?no

9. Do you have friends nearby to hoop with? My boyfriend & I are learning together & have been helping to teach other kids in the neighborhood how to hoop & our first adult willing to try just volunteered to become a regular member of our group this weekend is our first hooping get together with everyone we can get involved we're all learning together & having such an awesome time!;)

10. Do you teach hooping? technically yes I do share everything i learn with a few of the neighborhood kids & those who will be in our group just beginning eventually yes I do plan to be "technically" teaching & giving lessons but right now more of a free helping each other kinda thing.

11. What kind of songs do you listen to while hooping? at this point I just want to hoop it doesn't matter what I listen to lol Shpongle & Dubstep, Loreena McKennit, hip hop, you name it doesn't really matter I just want to move to the beat with the hoop in some way shape or fashion..lol Sometimes I find myself hooping to whatever videos I happen to be watching as well & you can usually tell if you'll like it by the way the music starts so guess whatever happens to really catch my attention at that particular time..lol

12. What is your favorite song right now? The Mystic's Dream by Loreena McKennit but I have many other favs as well but this one is beautiful & the feeling is awesome hooping to it!

13. Do you buy hoops or make your own? I have 14 hoops all store bought nothing fancy or worth anything other than to practice with but this weekend we're making our first batch of hoops for our hooping party on Sunday;) So very excited!

14. Have you lost weight since starting to hoop? Definitely & more flexible, I'm noticing muscles I didn't even know existed..lol they're becoming more defined & toned truly this is just the beginning I'm very confident this will help me reach my goals!

15. What size is your favorite hoop? I use a 34, 29 & 26 but honestly I want a bigger one that I can do more with & will hold up instead of crimp or bend while practicing kicking it up;)

16. Are you comfortable hooping by yourself in a public place? getting used to that & only started to be more in the public's eye. First performance is June 27th @ my 20 yr. reunion!;)

17. How did you learn the majority of the tricks you know today? watching a ton of videos & practicing constantly having a partner helps with figuring things out too when you're basically teaching yourself Thank God for Youtube!..:))

18. Who is your favorite hoop teacher? there are so many wonderful hoopers out there I think it's hard to choose because they each have their own unique style and as a beginner everyone I've seen does awesome stuff so hard to decide:)

19. What advice would you give to beginner hoopers? Never doubt your ability to master a trick, no matter how hard it may be sometimes you have to step back, rethink the situation & keep trying eventually it will happen most likely when you least expect it to. Don't over think everything just learn how to feel it & go with the flow allow it to unfold before you instead of you worrying too much about everything & hindering your own self through thinking it to death which is a very hard challenge in the beginning! Definitely, most importantly becoming impatient or frustrated only makes it more difficult & counterproductive so take this opportunity to develop patience;)

20. Do you fire hoop? If not, do you want to? no, most definitely eventually yes!

21. Do own an LED hoop? Where did you get it?no but we're going to try to make our own with some instructions we found through Psi Hoops website.

22. How much time do you spend on Hoop City? been reading posts from here for several weeks but just registered yesterday finally. I spend several hours a day between here & hooping.org though reading articles, threads & have a hard time getting off the site!;)

23. What was the first trick you learned (besides waist hooping)? taking the hoop from lasso position in the air to around my neck to my shoulders & caught it on my hips keeping it going which was so exhilarating to me & significantly helped my self confidence!

24. What is the last trick you mastered? swing hoop around in your arm and over your back & drop into it to hoop at your waist.

25. What trick so far was the hardest for you to learn? The vortex is still tricky for me lots of other things come easier but this one I tend to get my hands tied up or forget where to grab during the process I know what I'm supposed to do but it doesn't always happen right put it that way..lol

26. Which one are you finding is almost impossible to get?I'm having issues kicking it up I can get it to spin around my ankles no problem and get my foot in but it loses momentum before I can get it picked up my hoops aren't really sturdy enough where we have to do it on hard surfaces inside & outside so thinking better hoop may help!;)

27. How many hoopers would you say live in your town/city? um..thus far only ones we know of is ourselves & the few kids we've been trying to teach & hoping to get more involved & revolutionize it here in Charleston, WV because no one ever hoops here it's like seriously obsolete!

28. Have you performed hooping in front of an audience? the neighborhood but nothing major since it's all learning stages right now but it's good practicing in front of others since my first performance is at my 20 yr. High School Reunion in 3 months! So I think it's helping me prepare for that plus we also walk our hoops to the local pharmacy that's about 1/2 mile away & soon as the weather is nice again we're going to start really hitting some great public places to practice & try to get others wanting to hoop & meet up regularly.

29. Has anyone told you you were too old to be playing with a hula hoop? yes..lol my mother but that's the power of being nearly 40 yrs. old I can do whatever I want..lol

30. What’s the worst injury you’ve acquired from the hoop? hand & ankle bruises thus far but I'm sure that's not the worst I'll see before it's over with;) sometimes I feel like I'm just beating myself up others it flows really well I know there's a happy medium..;)

4. How often do you hoop? every day
5. Do you have an indoor hoop space? kind of--my study only has a desk in it, so there's a lot of space, but the damned ceiling fan really limits the off-body stuff. i guess you know you're a hooper when you live in Atlanta and you seriously consider removing your ceiling fan because it interferes with your hooping.

7. Would you say that you are obsessed with or addicted to hooping? ohmigod, yes. yes to both.

9. Do you have friends nearby to hoop with? nope. i wish! my friends are supportive, but it's not really their thing.
10. Do you teach hooping? god, no. I admire those who do, though! for me, teaching falls into the same category as being in front of a camera--no one wants that to happen.
11. What kind of songs do you listen to while hooping? depends... anything syncopated is awesome, as well as stuff that I call "circus music." not sure how to explain that, but I know it when I hear it.
12. What is your favorite song right now? right now, I obsessed with the song "We No Speak Americano" (sic?), after having heard it in this hand-dancing video by the Riverdance couple: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTJANr7SCeU&feature=related. do yourself a favor and click that link. it's not a hooping video, but trust me, you want to watch it.

22. How much time do you spend on Hoop City? too much!
23. What was the first trick you learned (besides waist hooping)? the vortex

27. How many hoopers would you say live in your town/city? hmm, not sure. i think there are several, but there doesn't seem to be an organized hooping contingent. then again, I just moved here last year.
28. Have you performed hooping in front of an audience? nope
29. Has anyone told you you were too old to be playing with a hula hoop? haha, no! if they did, i guess i'd just tell them they were too old to be jealous of someone's mad hula hooping skills.
30. What’s the worst injury you’ve acquired from the hoop? what I think is a pulled shoulder muscle. it's going on right now, and I haven't been able to hoop for the past three days. sweet baby jesus, it's driving me craaaazy.
