Hey, guess what y’all? I got that email I’ve been waiting for all week!
It basically said I passed, but that I still suck at some shit – which is to be expected as a newbie.
I have to work on my plow stops (ugh), my laterals (double ugh – I barely even know what the fuck that means), forward and backward static stepping (the part that almost made me cry) and my time trials.
I also spent like 3 or 4 hours last night reading derby blogs. It’s really really addictive. And I read on this one awesome amazing blog that crying in derby is for wimps, and now I feel like a super wimp for crying over my weak ass ankles and core not being able to stop my skates from rolling.
This is my life. Until next time…
