posts and it seems like most people are older than I am (I'm 15). I was just curious of how old you guys are...any more young spinners (fire or glowsticks) out there?Thanks, Chris

Posted:Hey, I am 17...been spinning for about 6 months now. I thought there was no one at my school, but there's a new "rave club" on campus and there some people who spin glowsticks. Although they are more about going fast and doing snappy motions whereas I want to be more fluid and dance with my poi.

Pardon me while I burst into flames. I've had enough of the world, and its people's mindless games...- incubus

Posted:I'm 18 now, but I was about 14 when I started juggling and clubswinging, 15 when I started doing fire. At the last juggling festival, I taught a bunch of kids (ie under 10) to do staff, and they picked it up sooo fast! Some of them were almost impossible to teach, really short attention spans, but there were a couple who would learn a move, go away and perfect it, then come running back a minute later yelling "teach me another one, teach me another one!". I was so impressed at their determination, they really wanted to learn and they would just hammer away at a move until they got it. I really hope they carry on with it.....by the time these kids are teenagers they'll be waaay better than me

Yes, homework has to come 2nd!!! Even now I'm ment to be doing coursework.

Although maybe stopping work to spin increases the quality of homework, you can hardly concentrate while thinking only of spinning. rolleyes

Posted:I'm 16, I've been spinning for a year, but i only really got into it at the end of the summer. coincidentally I also got my first set of firepoi at the end of the summer smile

cause the air outside will make
our cells divid at an alarming rate
until our shells simply cannot hold
all our insides in, and thats when we'll explode

Posted:Holy 5 year old bumpup.

Kinda funny that none of the people that started this thread are in High School anymore. And most of them aren't on HoP anymore either.


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.
