So, I have been seriously neglecting my writing, mostly because I’ve been awfully busy preparing for the end of the world. That is, RAGNAROK!!! I can’t believe this will be my third Rag while writing this blog. So much has changed. Three years ago, I started Pole and blogging at the same time. Ron got poles set up in the Stagger Inn for that first “pole” Rag. I had been dancing for about a month. I did my little spins and half climbs at the party and had a lot of fun doing it.
Then during the second year, we bought a second set of poles (the original set now stored in Colorado for events there). My skills had soared so much that I was able to teach a Pole series class at Ragnarok. I built a pole dancing army who danced at the Poisoner’s Guild party, and Mardi Gras later in the week. This week, we have some pole surprises in store, but my skills have improved even further, and yes: I will be teaching again. It’s incredibly exciting how BIG it is becoming.
And even more awesome is that I will get to see my very dear friend, Kiki, who moved to Pennsylvania last February to pursue her career as a Physician’s Assistant. She is about four hours from the Rag site, and she is brave enough to come to Ragnarok for two nights! It will be so, so wonderful to see her and spend a solid two days with her, PLUS she’ll be there for the Poisoner’s party on Monday night to do some dancing! It’s shaping up to be a fantastic event.
I’ll come back home in 9 days black and blue, battered from Pole dancing every night, and fighting during the days. And, once I recover from the extreme lack of sleep, I will be happier, more relaxed, and more ready than ever for events down the road.
