LJ Idol - Topic 11 - Run, Don't Walk

I've neglected LJ Idol this week. I couldn't think of what to write. I didn't really want to write. I considered dropping out. I felt like I'd lost my focus. I should have spent today working on my LJ Idol post, but instead, I spent the day making a hooping video.

And as I sat there waiting for the video to upload, I thought, what if I post the video I spent all day working on as my entry? Why not? The green room topic today asked what we do well other than writing. Well, this is it. I hoop well. I hoop well because I cannot make myself put the damn thing down.

Hooping is my passion. My spirit. My life. I don't walk to my hoop, I run to it. I woke up this morning, shoved a few spoonfuls of peanut butter down my throat for some form of sustenance, then went straight to the park and spent an hour filming. I had to go to work immediately after, and I didn't get home from work until after midnight. But I then sat down to edit the video, which took about five hours. In short, my entire day got devoted to this video.

I'm really, really proud of it. I put in a lot of effort. I think it captures the joy and passion I get from my hoop, as well as how much fun it is. So here it is, my LJ Idol post this week, in the form of a video. Enjoy!
