And I got very sick and bowed out of 30/30. I hosted an indoor hoop jam this week. It was a bust. How do I freaking gain more interest? I'm trying my best...maybe. I'm feeling discouraged. I want to change the lives of Kentuckians with hoops and other props. How do I achieve this?
Other than that, I went to help with 4-H this week. It was their annual "reality store" for 8th graders. I took my poi in because obviously hoops are not fun. I've sorta got the butterfly for a few moments till the bang. There was some down time. So I started practicing my butterflies. I had a few kids ask me and others asked the other adults because they were scared to talk to me. At lunch, I had a whole group crowding around me to talk about it. At one point, a couple of boys walked up to me and said, "Ma'am, are you a performer?" Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Squeee squeee squeeee! One day I hope to be!
So I learned a reel today but I can't do a two beat weave. If I taped a video of the things I'm having problems with, does anyone know enough poi to figure out my errors? I really want to spin poi but it's hard. Just like hooping was.
Maybe poi and contact juggling will be my big winter things. So far, so good, I haven't gotten anything flow art related for my birthday. I don't expect a surprise from John when he gets home either.
I didn't get anything done on my vacation. Although I did get to go on a corn maze and many haunted houses.
