World Hoop Day Woohoo

Happy World hOOp Day!!! (Yes, it's a thing, a real thing.) In honor of today's hoopiness, I decided to try to learn a move I've been attempting for a couple of years. It's moving the hoop from your waist, to chest, to shoulders, then up to your hand. I've never been able to come close. Then, one of my hooping SparkBuddies (CIRCULARPRAISE) posted a video on her page and it made a little more sense. So, I tried and--BAM--I'm sorta, kinda, close to doing it! I'm gonna keep trying, to see if I can smooth it out and make it look less razzamaspaz. We'll see. But anyway, woo to my hOOpy hoo!

In other news, one of my FB buddies posted this planking challenge on her timeline and I decided to try it. Some of my friends are doing this with me, so we'll probably vlog it, at some point this month. Now, I can't begin to imagine being able to do a 5-minute plank by the end of the month, and I have a vivid imagination. But I'm guessing that I'll be able to plank longer than the 20 seconds that we started with, so I'm pumped about that. Here's the challenge, if you want to jump in:

We started on October 1st.

Here is today's 40-second Plank Face. RAWR!

And, for no other reason than just because I can, I will leave you with this Creative Journal Entry that I did with two of my artsy friends.

The prompt was to draw without stopping, for at least 30 minutes. We did an hour, because we're overachievers.

My friends are visual artists. I am not, which is why I opted for a stick figure comic of the three of us battling Mr. Sprinkles, the giant doughnut. Write what you know, people, write what you know.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend! I'm chaining myself to my desk, to finish writing a script for Christmas Eve.

This is life in a creative time warp. I'll break out the Easter eggs in December. :)

Spark ON, Brave Sparkers!!!
