Firmoo shades III


Firmoo
Cheapest glasses with best quality.I
I'm sure you fellow bloggers already know this.



During road rage on the free way, rolled down my window and out fly my glasses. 
Never had a problem with damage. They're probably chillin on the freeway mint condition, hahh.

Couldn't find the exact pair while hunting...
They were $20. I'd pay double, triple to get those back. Most expensive are like, $40. 


Color, yes
Frame shape, no

These are still in fine condition. Only reason I'm getting an additional is because of the BOGO sale.
l'll have  2 extra pairs. Cheaaa
sale!

Assist with your opinion?

I'm thinking these. 
Stick with mermaid colors, 
Better frame shape.


Or these...


Same fit as my first pair,
Not quite the obnoxious Buddy Holly size.


I'd get both with the sale, but want a spare basic black pair on hand.
Which colored frames shall I choose?

Leaving without believing


Stuck in my head
Make believing
There's no way out
When everyone's leaving


Yesterday was my last day with Lil Micaela. Her dad's part of the boarder patrol and now sationed a good handful of states away. 

This family is a rare breed. They've helped me mentally, socially, and inspire to pursue my goals. 

Was given the option to move with them. 

Our last week together, Lil Micaela sat on the swing. Slowly looks up then looks down. 
"If you come to ______ with us, we can find trapeeze classes for you Big Micaela".

They leave today. 
It's just now hitting me.

Missing hammocks


     Aerial season 2 is already almost over. Haven't shared much, but I can't express enough how much I miss hammock silks...

      Hammock silks feel more secure, and you can mess with various drops. 
      Straight silks are two separated silks. More strength vs. grace. First step is either inverting or wrapping your feet for security.

First day I'm like "Wat?".


Still loving that trapeze
Not enough pictures this season. Next season I'll track weekly.



Seeing pictures makes me realize how I'm supposed to look like in each pose. Can't deny I've gained progress though. 

      Day 1...fell off trapeze after my forearms gave out. 
      Currently...can use momentum swinging upside down up to a seated position. 




      Sounds like nothing, but It's not like monkey bars that's for sure! Haha. One day I'll have videos to share, and astonish you. :)
 
Do you have any crazy dreams you wish to pursue?

Shade


      As a nanny I don't always have enough cash for the crane game or vending machine. Like I have the past year, I tell Lil Micaela "Money doesn't grow on trees Lil Micaela, but it would be the perfect place for shade".

      After hearing it a million times, she finally responded....



      "You see that tree over there big Micaela? That's a money tree".

      Well...where's the money?

      "Everybody took it all"
     
     So why didn't it grow back money? The leaves are like any other tree.

      "The leaves were all gone. So the trees decided to grow back regular. Now it's normal and nobody bothers it. And now that tree is the perfect place for shade".

Aerial series 2


No, I didn't die doing aerial.
In fact, more progress made!
(Pictures vary throughout series 1)
Start series 2 today.
Withdrawn for about 2-3 weeks.

Before series 2 started, I managed to fall 4 times.

Silks are fun, drops are the shit.
Gotta love the facial expressions...




But there's something about trapeeze...
That I admire 









Whelp. Found my happy place.
Where's yours?

Flying


Hula hooping impresses people. Something self taught.
Anybody can do it. 

I don't want to impress, I want to astonish.

A circus art that takes training and hard work. So I decided to fly...

Aerial arts day 1



Aerial arts day 4



Every class has an hour on silks, and an hour on trapeeze. 

My first day started with silks. By the time I got to trapeeze my hands and forearms were super cramped.
So I stayed strong and gave it my all.
Swinging off the trapeeze my forearms and hands gave out. Followed by a nice faceplant.
Thank you gymnastics mat for saving me.
