Bucket List

I am adding two new activities to my bucket list. For some odd reason, these two activities made me think of women empowerment and Rosie the Riveter… Longboarding and Roller Derby.

A few weeks ago, I was watching trash T.V. and I noticed a woman pull out her Longboard to relieve some stress. I was totally engrossed in her skateboarding skills. Skateboarding is something that I have tried to stay away from. I don’t like falling, scabs, broken bones, etc. For once, I don’t care. So what if I fall a couple of times (indoors). Wait! Did I mention that I was going to try this indoors first? I just ordered my Longboard and did not order a helmet…reason being that this will begin as an indoor sport. When I get good at the basics I’ll take it outside and invest in a really protective helmet and kneepads.

Roller Derby girls are just amazing. I watched a group of housewives participate in this sport (trash T.V.) and I knew that it was something that I wanted to try. I already have skates and would need the additional equipment. After looking this sport up I realized that there is a team in Chicago called the Windy City Rollers. The ladies on the site look pretty intense. On the other hand, maybe I’ll just go watch a meet first and then decide my fate.

Happy Spring Break!

    Wow. Good for you! I say go for it! Roller derby does look so fun but I agree, pretty intense! I think both are great additions to your bucket list. Oh, and I don’t know if you ever saw it, but there was a really good movie a few years ago with Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page about Roller Derby Girls. I believe it was called Whip It. If you haven’t seen it, you might like that one! Good luck! 🙂
