My entire weekend was filled with roller derby and it was awesome. Saturday my team and I volunteered at an event organized by our league President at WVU’s coliseum. Kids were allowed to see and explore different trucks(postal trucks, semis, ambulance, firetruck, etc.), cars, and even a helicopter. At our booth, we painted faces, gave airbrushed tattoos, and dressed up as SuperWhy characters(see pic below. I was Princess Presto, the black princess ^_^ ). It was a great event and it raised $10,000 for Timmy’s Fund, an organization dedicated to assisting families who are currently battling childhood cancer!

On Sunday, me, the bf, another roller girl and her hubby, drove to Ohio for 2 scrimmages. I had pre-scrimmage worries about how I would perform. I had nothing to worry about. I did fine! I am actually ok with the way I played instead of beating myself up about my performance.  The first scrimmage was my team v. another leagues B-team. We won! The second scrimmage was a mix of girls from 3 teams including ours, split into two teams. It was a lot of fun, but very tiring to play in two scrimmages back to back. I didn’t play much in the second scrimmage, but I was still worn out at the end of the day.


Taught my last day of preschool yesterday.  They graduate tomorrow. Woohoo! GTFO. Just kidding…or am I? ^_-

  1. oh the fundraiser sounds like it was fun. i love things like that. although, i couldn’t be a character. lol it looks painfully hot and awkward (how do you see?!)

  2. It was so freaking hot! We only had to have them on for 20 minutes at a time. And thank goodness for that. The costumes had fans in the head, but they were broken. 😦

    I couldn’t really see. I had an escort telling me things like “this little girl to your right would like to say hello to you!”. Fun times.
