So this evening marks the last of this Fresh Meat period. After today we’ll know who will go through to Smokey Bacon and who needs to practice a bit more. I’m just glad there isn’t a real test anymore, like last time. Less pressure 😉
I am a still bit nervous though. Last time it was pretty obvious I wouldn’t pass to the next level, but this time… I just don’t know.
I’ve grown so much these past few months, not just as a skater but most of all confidence-wise. No longer do I start to tremble when I need to do a knee-tap, I do it. No longer do I get a fit of hysteria when the jumping line gets set up, I roll to the line and jump. (Ok, so I still jump beside the line, because I don’t get high enough, but I DO get myself off the ground with both feet at the same time and land safely on my feet as well ;))
But have I grown enough technique-wise for SB? I really don’t know. Some things have gotten so much better and some things I feel I need to practice more to really get the hang of it.
I really, REALLY want to get to the next level. But I also know I need several basic skills to be able to handle the next level and if I need to FM a bit longer, then I guess I’ll just have to suck it up and keep trying.
Well. I’ll just go and do my best this evening and see what happens.
No matter what: one day I WILL become a rollergirl for the Rockcity Rollers!
