Sometimes, I fall in love with pictures.  It may be because I like a rock that is off somewhere in the distance or because the person's expression is priceless.  I have even found pictures where I could not articulate why I loved it , which made me love it all the more.  This picture speaks for itself.  There is too much that I love about it. Her eyes. The male figures pushed to the background. The color of the film.  The sign. I love every single piece of it and that is all that matters.

I’m Kind of a Big Deal – I Play Roller Derby

Well, at least I think I am!!  :)

You certainly can't say I didn't warn you that things have changed a lot in the past two years!  The last post (before today's posting rampage) that I did was one where I was pissed off and casted because I had slipped on a patch of black ice and had broken my leg and both sides of my ankle.  That was January 2011.  Fastforward to November 2012 and YES I am playing roller derby.    I play for the Queen City Roller Girls.  I am not going to go into details quite yet – I have to grade some papers and go into work/school for my long day – but I promise (yeah, yeah, I know, I have failed you in the past) to give you glimpses into what has been in terms of derbylove.  

So more soon. Watch out for my next roller derby blog post for that all important roller derby name and number…..

Holy Crap! Almost TWO YEARS?!!

Okay, so I do not know what to say.  I dropped the ball AGAIN.  In my defense, I am getting my PhD but I am always complaining that I do not get to express myself creatively anymore, so I am back to give this whole blog thing another try.  My life has changed a lot in the last two years – which is exciting! So maybe part of my diving right back into blogging will be giving you some glimpses into the stuff I have been doing.  Of course, I will also tell you about what I am currently doing AND will be doing – because that IS what this blogging stuff is all about, right?  More soon! xxxo
