So, a couple of weeks ago, I went to my first roller derby practice – not knowing a single person there. Yep, I was nervous as sh*t. BUT, the gals I met there were so welcoming and non-judgey and cool that I feel like I’ve found a new pack. Very exciting. I can’t wait to keep it up and improve with skating and one day play in a real bout. Finally my geeking out can pay off! The team I’ve skated with hosted their first ever bout/scrimmage this weekend so John and I went to check it out (he’s never seen a live derby bout, unlike me) and it was so much fun. He’s definitely into it now, and I am more than ever. So very excited about it all. And in a couple of days I will unleash some top-secret awesomeness………
I finally had my orientation at the new job last week….all paperwork is in order. On top of that, I got a call to interview for another place I applied to (a long shot really) so I went for it last Friday. Honestly (though I don’t want to jinx it) I feel like it went really well. I would be so pleased to get the call about this one….a real accomplishment for me. So – cross your fingers now please.
I managed to finish and submit 4 BIG assignments last week. That was insane but exciting and satisfying…but I won’t let my guard down there will be more. There is always more.
KNITTING! Yes, I have started a new project – super cool retro leg warmers. It’s more of an experiment really….modifying a pattern/making it up a little with some yarn I’ve had kicking around for ever. It’s too early to tell how they’ll turn out but here’s a snapshot of the start.And all the knitting magic happens at my “Granny Station”. My Granny Station consists of my glider/rocker that my grandma who’s gone now left for me, and the blanky that I wrap myself in was crocheted by my other grandma who I just got off the phone for over an hour with. I like my Granny Station – good things happen there. Maybe I should figure out how to crochet again…it’s been a long time. Anyways.
Happy day peeps
