It's quiet in our 40+ group. What's going on, people? Tell us what you've been working on, how life is or just ramble in general if you like!
Let's see. What's up with me -
I finished SaFire's Seeding One class about a month ago and have been working on stuff from there mostly and finding some flow. Kind of hit a wall though recently. It feels like I practice and practice practice but I'm not seeing improvement. I've analyzed this and I've come up with -
I need a some new challenge to re-excite me about hooping. Practicing the same old same old over and over gets tedious and zaps the fun right out of hooping! To that end, I've found a couple of cool trick tutorials I'm working on (a behind the back duck in, a kind of "reverse revolving door" to change direction, and the backwards weave), I'm going to start the Seeding Two classes, and I'm going to start learning minis!!! I figure switching it up between practicing regular hooping and practicing minis will give me the variety I crave both physically and mentally.
I need a new hoop! All those hoops and none that I want to use! LOL! I switch back and forth betwen a few hoops - each works for something, but none work for everything. I'm ordering a very pretty glitter rainbow from Kendra (Sunshine Designs here at Hoop City) and a set of minis!!!! Going to put my order in this evening. Can't wait!
I'm also pushing DH for a new computer. Our PC is about 5 years old and is just NOT WORKING for processing the hooping vids I'm taking with my new Flip camera. Time to upgrade. Thinking of going with a Mac this time. I really want to start sharing my hooping vids, and I'm uber frustrated that I haven't been able to edit them and upload them. Grrrr.
Hmm, think that's about it. Work has been crazy busy (I'm a paralegal/loan closer) with mortgage rates being so low. I hate to say it, but I really need the fed to jack those babies back up! I'm sick of being swamped!!
So, I've rambled long enough. Tell me what's up with YOU!
nice article Richie, I hope you get some 'live' hoopers to shake it with! I hope you'll get some beginner classes too, I'm really enjoying spreading the hooplove and learning lots about the hoop by teaching it. Congrats on putting yourself out there. Even if you don't get much response now, you're planting seeds in the community, and people will come join you in the park this summer, through this article.
