I started roller derby. Doing this has always been something I've passively dreamed of aside from the barrier of not being a girl - which I had assumed to be necessary. However, light city derby is bi-gendered (is that the correct term? whatever, i'm inventing it now) and as such have included me into their "freshies" team which is scary and exciting but overall exhilerating. I've only been to two training sessions but have noteably improved since then. I have: a pair of secondhand rollerblades and a new white helmet, which is predictably going to be decorated by me.
(i'm stupidly wearing green jeans to my first session, ugghhh ok)
My "goth band" now has 4 functional members. I was never cool enough to be in a band when I was in high school and never really had friends that shared the same music tastes as me so that's great.
