I have a husband and two daughters (14 months apart) I adore, a full time job and I am currently working on my brown belt in Cuong Nhu karate.
I truly like everything. I have yet to encounter a genre of music that I dislike, since I like a little bit of everything. I grew up in the 80's, so many of those slow songs hold a piece of my heart.
I was a Choir/Band Geek. I loved singing, did many musicals and did a lot of Band Front (where you march around on the field and twirl a flag). I was always loud and comical, never made waves and prided myself on being someone everyone could like. (At least-the boys seem to like me!)
The loves of my life. Everything in my life is done for them, because of them. How can I say I do derby and have it be for them? A happy mom is a sane mom-one that everyone enjoys being around!
As a kid, I spent every Saturday at the Kimberton Roller Rink. I used to win races for free drinks and food. I never set foot on skates again until February, when I joined the Brandywine Roller Girls!
They all think I'm bad ass. Which I am. In case you were wondering.
TV. I watch a LOT of TV. I always feel lazy when I watch a lot of it and none of the housework got done all day...
I love derby because it gets me moving, makes me feel good about myself and has let me form bonds with many women I would never had the pleasure to meet otherwise. There are many times we joke that we are the "misfits" of our lives, but in derby, we all fit together, we all have one common goal, to be the best we can be, to play the best game we can play, and to be able to rely and count on each other on the track, and off.
