~Grow more within the hoop and perform more this year.
~Go to Hoop Convergence to reward myself for paying off my debt.
~To see as much live music as possible and to have more epic adventures with my friends (these two go hand in hand quite often)

Hoop Convergence

Posted on May 10, 2011 at 11:02am 1 Comment

I am still shocked that I won the scholarship to Hoop Convergence this year. I want to make the most I possibly can out of this trip!

 

I can hardly contain my excitement anymore. I leave to go to Hoop Convergence tomorrow morning. Since the drive is over 16 hours Sarah Sparkles and  I want to give ourselves plenty of time to drive during the daylight hours. I have oodles to do before we leave tomorrow morning, but I have faith that we will get it all accomplished. :) I just…

 

It seems neverending...

This past year has really been a test of my sanity, resolve, etc. Now above and beyond everything else I can't hoop, which is what has been my saving grace. The thing I could always count on to calm me down and help me center myself.

 

I totaled my car on Feb 25th and injured my knee. I strained some muscles and ligaments in my knee and I have been on crutches since then. I really hope my knee heals quickly because I am literally dieing to hoop. I miss it soooo much and it has…

 

My Healing Journey Within the Hoop

Posted on January 14, 2011 at 1:11pm 3 Comments

This is intensely personal, but the hooping community is such a loving and accepting group of people that I feel comfortable sharing my story. Especially since this story does intertwine with my hooping journey as well. I am hoping that by being courageous and telling my story that it will help someone, inspire someone, and in another way help me as well. Telling my story and breaking the silence around it has been integral for me and will continue to be.

My Year in 2010

Posted on December 30, 2010 at 9:00am 0 Comments

2010 IS ALMOST OVER, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?



Stayed single almost the whole year? No.  I went through a really difficult break up in March (the end of a 7 1/2 year relationship) and I started dating my new boyfriend in May.



Were involved in something you'll never forget? I have so many awesome memories from this year it is hard to choose one. Hmmm... hooping at Pridefest this year was awesome.  :)



Tripped over a coffee table? Not that I recall.

Inspiration For My Day

What's done

What's done is done. The time and energy you spend complaining about it will get you nothing but a lot of frustration and negativity.

What's happened has happened. Instead of looking back, fretting and arguing about why or how or who is at fault, look forward and consider all the positive possibilities that are available to you.

If you've been wronged, don't seek revenge. Seek success, seek achievement, seek fulfillment, seek to take what has happened and turn it into…

I'm really happy I met you there too! I'm a little disappointed in myself for being such a little introvert the whole time. Any time you ladies are down in Orlando...!

I am so glad I got to meet and hug and play with you at Hoop Convergence this year. What a treasure you are. You Madison hoopers rocked my socks off! I so look forward to coming there to hoop with you. Thank you for your kindness. You really touched my heart. I can hardly wait to play together again. Hugs and love to you!

You've got 4 hours on my drive, that's what, like, four or five hundred extra miles! Whew insane! At least you have a buddy in the car to swap with and talk with; I'll have my hoops and radio lols; I hope I get some decent scenery!!!


I've read Caroleena's post a couple times, it both calms and freaks me out all at the same time lol!

 

Congrats on the scholarship girly, karma loves you! ^.^ 

 

Seven days 'till I get in the car and go! go! go! I think I'll be getting into the camp by 1am Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

Hey lovely lady! Thanks for the sweet comment! ^.^

I'm so nervous about Hoop Convergence, so I'd be honored to hoop it up with you! I've been mildly unnerved about the fact that I'm about to drive 11 or 12 hours away from home and drop myself into a group of complete strangers. Not to mention I'm still learning and need loads of polish; needless to say I'm nervous about being a novice among so many amazing hoopers!! It's going to be AWESOME! lol

- Is there a hoop group where you live ? There is one in Madison, WI, but I have only met a few of the members. I tried to go to a jam, but no one really showed up. We are trying to start a hoop group in Milwaukee, but have yet to be successful. A lot of my friends hoop though... well... 3 others do on a regular basis. (Update: I went to another jam in Madison... I LOVE Madison Hoopers!! They have such a great energy about them.)

- Did you start it ? Nope. Sarah gets credit for that. (Glittered Goods)

- Would you say that you are obsessed with or addicted to hooping ? Yes! I don't get other things done because of hooping. =P

- Have you posted hooping videos ? How many? A few... I hoping for much better ones during the summertime. :)

- Do you have friends nearby to hoop with ? Yes! I hoop with my friends as much as I can. :)

- Do you teach hooping ? I have taught people that have been hooping with my and my friends. It is my goal to start teaching classes in 2010.

- Have you lost weight since starting to hoop ? A tiny bit.

- Are you comfortable hooping by yourself in a public place ? Yes. I normally prefer to be with other hoopers, but I have hooped by myself in public a few times. Mostly I get so into what I am doing that I forget anyone is watching.

- How did you learn the majority of the tricks you know today ? Most of the tricks I have learned have been taught to me by Sarah (Glittered Goods). Some are self taught by watching other people hoop or videos online. I have used a few tutorials from Safire as well. :)

- Who is your favorite hoop teacher ? Sarah!

- What advice would you give to to beginner hoopers ? Be patient... it takes time to learn how to connect with your hoop. The more you practice the better you will be.

- What is the last trick you mastered ? Turning around while isolating.

- What trick so far was the hardest for you to learn ? Knees to waist, I nail it almost every time now.. unless I am wearing slippery clothing.

- Which one are you finding is almost impossible to get ? One leg hooping and foot hooping.

- How many hoopers would you say live in your town/city ? I have no clue... maybe 20 or so.

- Has anyone told you you were too old to be playing with a hula hoop ? Yes... on facebook.

- What’s the worst injury you’ve acquired from the hoop ? Bruises are the worst thing a can think of. I have wacked myself in the head a few times... it sucks, but I normally keep going.

- Have you ever hooped naked ? Yes... :)

- Have you been to a hoop camp/retreat ? Which one ? I'm hoping to go one day, but I currently do not have the funds to do so.
