Relatively simple to learn, but addictive if your at all competitive and want to keep trying for the bullseye or that perfect throw. Today I joined an amazingly fun group of folks with LIM 359 to throw some axes Bad Axe Throwing Each throwing alley had an assigned coach. Wow. What a difference it makes to get feedback on all your shots by someone with experience and then be able to make improvements.
As of last weekend, I’m an executive producer! For the past two weekends, I’ve worked with Trish Tolentino and Jess of Stories Not Forgotten and Rebekah Henderson of Tan Tigress to film a series of videos that will become part of an exciting zine-making curriculum project I’m working on called From A to Zine. This IMAGINE 2020 Fund grant-winning project will bring zine making into 4th-8th grade classrooms as a way to celebrate and amplify student voices.
Whew! Well, that was awesome. As part of my #gpd52new project where I try something new each week, I headed to FLY Kickkbox to try kickboxing! Shout out to Jamaica and Briana who helped wrap my hands, gave me some pointers and made me feel so welcome! The workout was fast paced, but thankfully, there were regular breaks to catch your breath and have some water.
Yoga (and I actually really like it! Thanks for taking me Bre Patterson of Bites with Bre!). Why try something new? Because taking risks and feeling vulnerable invites us to discover new parts of our ourselves. When grappling with something new, we’re forced to be present.
