Too much stuff going on, I never seem to sit down to write it out!
Quick recap, my March attendance pretty much sucked, I went to Albuquerque as a tag-a-long to my boyfriend's conference, had a mini breakdown the Thursday before tryouts, made it to Sunday's tryouts and held my breath for results.
If you remember, last time I scored a 2.6 and was a Storm Chaser on probation. This time I'm not exactly "thrilled" because I'm still a Storm Chaser, but I did increase my score by .34 for a total of 2.94. Techncially the cutoff is 3.0, but luckily I wasn't bumped back to New Recruit because of a 0.06 difference. (Two other girls were bumped back to NR from LB & SC, two were bumped back from LB to SC.) The tryouts were run well, I got 25 laps (WHOO-FREAKIN-HOO it's about time), but I was worn out and sore by the time it was over... THREE HOURS LATER.
As an SC I am eligible to play the scrimmage against Lawton this Sunday, which I'm excited about even though it's a closed event so no one can come cheer me on. HOWEVER, rather than sub-in SC for next weekend's double-header, our coaching staff has decided it's a good idea to make several of our girls play both games. And these aren't blockers, these are small-build jammers that get knocked around. Looks like we're going to continue the losing season.
I may sound jaded, and perhaps I am a bit, but I'll get over it and go on. Tonight a few girls and I will be skipping league practice to head over to a celebration to promote our league (and upcoming bout). Much more fun looking cute on skates than sweating your ass off at practice (even if it is less productive in improving skill).
