One of my great flaws is my competitive nature. I know it’s awful and there are more important things than a claimed victory, but I love racing people and comparing my skills/results with them. I’m working on this humbleness, but it is slow. If anyone can help me by cutting me down a notch or two at something I consider myself good at, please do. I spent a lot of time showing off today, which is a little uncharacteristic. It felt good to be good, but empty and perhaps insulting to my friends and company. I apologise to you all- please don’t think I’m a jerk! But on the plus side I did get a little more practice with my ice hockey stops- I’m not quite confident enough to use it in the heat of battle (split second direction change in scarecrow, like that dastardly red hatter) but I’m getting there. Bronwyn taught me some new tricks which I’ll have to practice- skating on one leg, going backwards (slowly but surely). It’s always a pleasure to be on the ice.
There were also some semi-cosplayers there… A lass in an Itachi Uchiha cloak and headband, and a few of her friends wearing a Naruto tracksuit, jumper and kitty ears. I wish I could be that awesome.
Thanks for coming today everyone! I’m always so exhausted after ice skating for some reason. Drained beyond description might be a good way of putting it. It’s Heroes and sleep for me, heigh ho!
