I'm so proud of myself today :) I managed to duck my head in and out of my hoop, and I didn't make any of my piercings bleed!
Also, I've gotten the hang of chest hooping/shoulder hooping (mostly). It feels really good to be able to keep it up and get the rhythm of it, though the hoop likes to travel up to my neck a lot.
I've found an indoor practicing space! There's a good sized bit of space by the elevators of my apartment building that works wonderfully. The roof is too low to do anything more than lasso above my head, but with my minis, it works great. It's a lot better than the atrium at the entrance of the building where everyone can see me. Only the people on my floor can see me if they're lazy enough to use the elevator! ;)
