I've decided to get back into whip (I've already started, this is just my intention to continue practice). I caught myself a few times when I took it out last week, and again today, but much less so. I've gotten past the fear of being hit, so I can focus on my form (which, ironically, decreases the amount I get hit dramatically). My target work is still really decent, even though I'm dreadfully out of practice. This summer, I'd like to pick up a fire whip and learn how to use it. I've seen some really amazing sets in YouTube, and I keep saying to myself either, "I can do that" or "that's a lot like poi, and I know people that can teach me". I would like to pick up some poi this summer and learn at least the basics, but not for poi sake. For whip sake. If that makes sense. There are some similar movements when you're using fire whips.

I'm The Boss (read:Lone Sentry) tomorrow. My actual boss is at High Meadow with Liz and our 8th graders. Bob is out on a personal day, and Randi is out for surgery. I'll have 3 kids, assuming they all come to school. I intend to read. A lot. I'm finishing up Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games (it's not released yet. Our media specialist, Casey, has lent me her copy that she got at the book expo. It's signed.) Then it's off to finish The Speed of Dark, and then maybe some Robin Hobb.

Stuff is good.
