OMG!!!!! I DID IT!!! I hit myself in the head twice while spinning and both times one of my spotters yelled out, CLEAR!!!! YOU’RE OKAY!!!! And I just kept spinning. It was spectacular!!!!!
I’m getting fire poi for my bday!!!!!! I feel kind of bad….I was telling my boyfriend that once my dad was out of the hospital (you may have read about or seen it in the news…”Man loses 50lbs in 5 months to donate kidney to best friend.” It was national news and ended up on Good Morning america because he made a video diary to keep track of his weight loss on Youtube for his best friend and recipient of his kidney who lives in another state…anyhow…that’s my dad.) As I was saying…once my Dad got out of the hospital and was fully recovered he was going to help me build fire poi. (My dad is a firefighter and therefore pyromaniac. Very convenient for this hobby.) After I told the bf this he said..”Nooooo…you don’t want to do that…” to which I responded….”ummm….yeah I do.” We went back and forth vaguely until he said…”What if someone is already getting some for your bday?” YEAH!!!!! I CAN’T WAIT…..!!!!!
Okay….I’m done rambling….:D
I can do it, but holy cow is it sloppy! I think this one is going to take a long time. I’m getting antsy to light up. I think what I want to do is go ahead and build my fire poi and start practicing with it instead of my practice poi. See if I’m as confident then. AHHHHHH….it’s just so exciting!!!!!
It was really warm yesterday so I spent about 1 1/2 hours outside with my poi. I’ve gathered enough moves now that I put together a combination with smooth transitions and all. It was great. I have a new bruise on my upper thigh from learning to move through the combo but it’s totally worth it. My goal is to light up by may or june. I really think I can do it.
I’m workin’ on it…I have practice poi and can spin for a few minutes..but then my arms get tired.
