Can you believe its September already! This year is going so quick, it can be quite panic inducing! Writing a list is a good excercise in remembering the awesome times you've had so far.
So heres mine, in no particular order......
*I skated in my first open door bout in April.
*I skated in my leagues first open door mixed scrim in July. First time skating with boys in a public setting!
*I applied for my Open University course in August. I am so excited to start this in October.
*There were two seaside adventures with friends, Felixstowe and Holkam beach, both in July. I love the sound of the sea!
|Me at Holkam beech|
*I started going to the gym and making healthier choices in March. I feel stronger and happier about myself now.
*I've had two big social events so far with my roller derby crew in April and July.
*I finally got my tattoo for my Grandad.
*I discovered a new pretty reserve with my Mum and Luke called Needham Lake in July. There is nothing I like better than sitting under a tree.
|It had geese and ducks and swans!|
*I went to the Norwich Body Art Festival and got totally inspired in August.
*I went to so many bouts this year; Croydon, Cambridge, Norwich and Southend.
*I went to my first big theme park; Thorpe Park in July. I discovered that I'm fine with roller coasters that go up and down (classic style) but throw me upside and spin me about and I will feel shaky and nauseous after. My favourite was the Tea Cups!
And last night I went to my first Milton Keynes mixed scrim! This is a monthly event that I will attend regularly. I did well, surprised myself on a few occasions and met some lovely roller derby folk.
All in all I feel like I have done quite a bit this year and I want to continue to have adventures, try new things and generally have a blast living life!
I am away on holiday to Somerset now, so I will have ;lots of adventures and inspiring stuff to share with you when I get back. Perfect scenario will include sitting under a tree with in hearing distance of the sea!
I hope if you feel inclined to write a list of all this things you've done this year it makes you feel great too!
