The scholarship

I know its been forever since I have blogged so here's an update: my tendonitis has gotten much worse so i'm now going to physical therapy; i'm not allowed to do any excersise on my feet running walking etc. except skating. Thank goodness cause I have another test in 2 weeks. Yikes! School is getting much harder and history is getting more and more boring.
 I am skating in my rinks Christmas show in about a month so thats something to look forward to.  The amazing thing about this is that I got a scholarship to be in the show. Last year, it cost about $300.00 for me to be in it. I couldn't be in it this year cause no way can my parents afford it. Or as my mom likes to say ' we don't want to afford it'. So I wasn't going to be in it. Untill my coach came to the rescue and said that she talked to person in charge and was able to get me into 2 group rountines and all I had to do was help out with the hockey boys number and pay $30.00! Yes I know the boys can  be really unruly but its worth it and sometimes kinda fun.

Short post.

I know, I'm sorry. I haven't blogged in like a week.
I have family in town so I get to see my new 5 month old baby cousin. She's is so adorable!!! They will be here through the weekend but they're leaving tomorrow.
My tendonitis is finally getting better!! It has been taking a lot of physical therapy but its getting much better.
My competition is on the 29th and I have an exhibition on Saturday and next Wed. on my B-day! I will be turning 14. I'm really looking forward to it, but the competition in what is practically occupying my mind. I'm really nervous. My stomach flip flops and churn whenever I think about it. I just really don't want to fall. I know this post is short, but there's nothing exciting going on in my life. Sorry. Wish me luck!!

What now? Oh I know, Tendonitis!

There's really not that much left to post anymore. School has just about started and skating is still my passion. It seems like everybody else always has cute ideas for a post. Me? Nothing. 

Although I have a competition on the 29th, and I skate like 2 1/2 hours a day 5x a week, I still feel like I'm never going to be ready.

Oh! Here's something worth while; I have tendonitis in my left knee. It really stinks. I have to ice it every day, work my hip muscles every day and rolling pin my leg. Not only that, but some days it REALLYS HURTS. I've probably had it for months and only 2 weeks ago finally went to the doc. I made the mistake of not telling my mom until like 3 weeks ago. So far, I've gone through 2 knee braces, and none seem to work except this thing called Rock Tape. I kind of don't know what it does, but all I care about is if it helps or not. Have a wonderful day!!

Show biz

Last Friday was a very wonderful day. I was able to be on camera. Our next door neighbor is in the entertainment industry and my dad's best friend. He needed a couple actors for a movie/ video thing, so he asked my little brother Cody(he is 8 years old). They(the film crew) started out at the Harbor and filmed Cody fishing and hanging out with his actor family. It was easy to see who the director was since he was wearing a directors trademark, a short-sleeved black shirt with glasses hanging off it. He was also the one shouting out orders and whatnot. After about two hours of baking in the sun watching Cody act, we could finally go home.
Later that day, my older brother Cameron was supposed to also be on camera but he had to back to school. So I was recruited in his place to be an extra. My job was to play basketball in the background. I'm a figure skater, not a basketball player unlike the other extra who was Cameron's good friend. Whenever I made a basket it was a big deal to me. Of course they got out the big camera's and such so it was a neat experience. And I will be getting paid, no idea when, but someday. It was really neat being on film.

Cause I had a bad day

Sorry I haven't been blogging! I have my skates now, they are perfect except the breaking in process requires a bunch of blisters and band-aids.
Today has been so warm and not the greatest day. I saw a car crash happen right in front of me at an intersection. Everybody was fine but it really shook me up. A couple other personal things happened. And all of this really shook me up. Then at skating practice I was right in the middle of take-off for a difficult jump and all of a sudden, the skin peeled right off a blister making it impossible for me to skate. So my coach gave me a blister pad which required me to take off my 3 pairs of tights and putting a hole in my brand new ones. I was in tears. $20 does not grow on trees. Yes. Skating tights are expensive.  So after I got myself back together, I resumed my lesson only to fall 20 more times. Time and time again I fell on my butt on the same stupid double Salchow. After 3 run-throughs in my program with music, It was taking up all of my willpower not to burst out in tears. I went home after a unsuccessful practice. Oh the drama. Tomorrow I am helping out at our rinks competition that I will not be particapating cause there's not a level high enough for me to compete at. :(

Today is my mom's 5th day on a 'joup' diet. Joup is a word we made up for juice and soup. A joup diet is when you have lots of liquids preferably soup and juice. My mom has a juicer, so she juices anything she has (spinach, celery, cucumbers, carrots, kale, apples, and oranges.) I just finished drinking my carrots and orange only juice, a big step up from the spinach drink she made last week. Addition to our 'joup diet is running around 3 miles every other day and bike riding not to mention my 2 1/2-3 hours of ice skating almost every day. Its not like we have any weight to lose, we just want to be healthier. We will be on a 'joup diet' for only 2 weeks but yesterday my body was very tired and sore. So, we went bike riding instead. Today, we will be going swimming at my mom's friends house, and probably go running in the evening. Wish me luck!
