Flow Wand? Yeah....

So, what happened to my flow wand?  Well, I have it.  I just kinda gave up on it.  I really don't know where to go with it and I feel lost.  I can keep it up mostly.  I just feel like I have no direction or purpose with it.  I know that it's best to start short string before long string which I think I will gravitate to in the future.  I just don't know where to go now.  I do know that I've been moving with the wand in the same direction I hoop.  Therefore I tried to stop doing that when I would remember.

I just feel like I don't have a direction.  Learning tricks on the hoop has given me a direction.  And I feel like I don't have one for the wand.  I love the wand.  Prisna makes it look freaking amazing but gosh, I just don't know where to go.  And I don't know what to do with my illusion hand.  Blah.

And maybe I felt self conscious cause John would say stuff like, "I see the string" and "why are you waving your other hand like a fool?"

I'm not giving up on it though.  I like how one video that is scheduled to post says, "just make stuff up!  This is new!"  And my comments on that vid I posted the other day helps a bit.  I just feel self concious.  It's like new, scary waters. With sharks.  I remember seeing a pretty cool flow wand vid and some of the responses were so negative.  And the girl replied, "dude, I had just had that for an afternoon.  I'm not like perfect yet."

And my hand gets tired from doing it. Poooo.

But hey, I have a $40 cat toy!

  1. LOL! My husband said the same thing- "I can see the string. Why is it black and not clear fishing line?" I don't think it shows up on video or when you are far away from an audience though.

  2. I hate when people have to be so negative. Is constructive criticism that hard to do? The only thing I can think of is that they're just jealous because their lame asses can't do it. Keep it up, Shannon. One of these days, it'll "click" for you. I know it! :)
