So this is my 100th blog post! High Five to That!
I was aware I was coming up to my 100th post and have been pondering what I might write about. Should I write a celebratory piece? A reflective piece? Or a general ‘Hey y’all here’s a top 100 of awesome things’.
I’m still trying to work out what I’m even doing with this blog. I’m still trying to find the time to regularly write on it whilst trying to balance my unbalanced life. So I thought I’d just do a little “this is what’s happening now” post.
Right about now (the funk soul brother).
Derby life = more meetings than you can handle. I am now on our Executive Committee as League Secretary. This means a lot more time spent actioning things behind the scenes to help the league run smoothly, a lot more meetings (and forum/email responses) and a lot more headaches. But people have to step up and get involved and I have less commitments then others so it was easy enough to offer my help to step up to the vacated position.
A few weeks ago our home teams were drafted and I got voted in as Alternate Captain. I am very excited and thrilled to be in this team and am super excited about our upcoming home bout on September 15th! A lot of work goes in to establishing a team from the very start. We need to decide and organise uniforms, team names and design a logo. Not to mention taking team training, sorting out our team dynamics and line ups for the bout. It’s a hectic time but an exciting one!
I also got drafted again to our travel team and we headed up to Wollongong over the weekend to play WIRD’s Steel City Derby Dolls. It was an epic adventure to say the least. I am going to write a separate post about this as there’s so much awesomeness to share!!

Non-derby life = Well… we went to the snow. That was ace. Other then that, I don’t have much of a life outside derby. I’m not working at the moment, so while it feels like I should have all this spare time in the World, I really don’t know where the hours slip away to sometimes.
Hey look, there’s me at the snow!
Things I’m looking forward to = another visit from UK Emma. Visitors from Adelaide coming to watch my first home bout! A trip to Adelaide for my mum’s 60th (really really really miss my family!). Getting another job. Writing more blog posts and being as Awesome as I can be!! (see photo below for evidence).
PS: I’m still waiting for my letter from the Queen!
