Posted:Yeahhhhh, I love these threads... Another year, more goals, more awesomeness...

I was gently surprised by my goals last year, the completion and nature of them. This year, more solid goals:

1) Keep doing this stuff for another year without getting a real job.
2) Do not destroy my fire troupe.
3) Do the choreography and dance things.
4) Do the Hundreds. All of them, on video.
5) Try and do 1000 Matrixies for Children in Need.
6) Try and do something for the Fringe, indoors.
7) More floorwork.
8) Get some silly leg stuff solid.
9) Make a CJ routine
10) Make the post modern staffs.
11) Make the amazing machines routine... Damnit!

That sounds like a good lot of goals. Now I have to go and work on some stuff before 2010 rolls around...

Ditto for contact.
Make some doubles.

Posted:- Continue to spin when I get back home to the UK and the cold
- Try and organise some sort of regular meet in home town
- Build a new staff to replace my travelling companion

Pending the first 3 go to plan...

- Practice all existing moves more so I don't have to chase the staff arround so much when doing contacting and hopfully make everything alot smoother

- Possibly start with some doubles?


If i had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isnt. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldnt be. And what it wouldnt be, it would. You see?
