I'll be stopping to hang out for a few days with opaleyes before heading up to Carrboro, so this trip will be made of DOUBLE AWESOME. Nikki is one of my best good friends, and I've only gotten to see her in PERSONS twice. This will actually be the first time I'll get to hang out with her that we aren't both occupied with something else. The first time we hung out was during Portus, so we were both crazy busy with the con and, you know, sleeping. The second time was her wedding, so she was a little pre-occupied with getting married. This time, we'll have a couple of days to just hang out and chill. Pretty super pumped about that!
Mostly, I didn't realize it until today, but I'm really looking forward to just going on another road trip. I've been daydreaming about my ULTIMATE GOAL, once I'm a super-sought after hoop instructor and a licensed Bikram Yoga instructor, where I have my bus that is also my house and I travel around from place to place teaching and soaking in the "local color" and meeting new people and not letting myself be stuck in any one location. Going on road trips like this is sort of like a preview of that life. It's not that far off, I just have to keep telling myself that. I CAN and WILL make it happen, it's not just a pipe dream. It's my future.
Anyway, yes, sorry for the random affirmations at the end there.
HEY, if you don't follow me on Facebook for some reason, I just posted some hoops for sale over there...check them out!
