So, I know you think I haven’t been writing, but that is SO untrue.
I have a whole bucket o’drafts that I started and then got lazy and abandoned.
A few topics of interest that I then realized were not so interesting and gave up trying to write a whole blog about:
1. I went on a water drinking kick!
Like, 12 cups a day! Because I read this stupid Daily Mail article! This was a feeble attempt at tightening up a bit for a big bellydance show coming up. Fuck bellydance costumes, btw. It’s going well, actually, but I’m peeing a lot. Taking the train home to Bay Ridge late at night is like playing bladder russian roulette. It’s given me a lot more pole-durance somehow, though, so highly recommend!
2. I quit my day job!
Okay not really so dramatic–I got another offer and very respectfully put in my two weeks notice. I didn’t flip any tables or anything! Still, this is really exciting, but scary for a couple of reasons: 1. I’m not longer going to be a plain old writer, but a “content strategist.” AHHHHH RESPONSIBILITY IS SCARY. 2. I have worked at this company for 3 years! I love everyone! I am sad. Change. 3. I will finally have to let go of My Big Love. This… makes me tear up a little, but I know it’s for the best. He sits about 6 feet away from me. I’m listening to him eat potato chips right. now. He also (still, forever) has a girlfriend, which bothers me than it apparently bothers him. So, it’s for the best that we finally get some distance. Because even as I’ve been forcing myself to Move On (FOR MONTHS, IT IS STILL HARD MONTHS LATER… no seriously, are you getting the full extent of this??) and I’ve pushed myself to go on endless shitty dates, he still hears about all of them when we’re washing our respective Tupperware in the break room and has The Best Reactions of All Time to my awful stories. We still leave each other desk presents. We still make faces at each other in meetings. I like him so darn much, and I’m going to miss him. I don’t forgive him yet for saying “I love you” while not single and then taking it all back, but that’s okay (not really, whatever, THIS IS PAINFUL, moving on).
3. I have been scaring myself and my mom on the hoop!
It’s only my 3rd or 4th class but my fellow students have been giving me a lot of props on my “control” getting in and out of moves–which is translating to great pole gains (think slooooow shoulder mounts). I’ve recommended lyra as pole cross training before, but now I’m practically issuing this advice as mandatory.
Anyway, here’s me walking through a new (very high!!) trick. Sorry this video is so long and boring!
What have you guys been up to? I’m seeing some INSANE shit on my blog roll, props to everybody on busting ass!
