Juggle Time: 1: 18:00
I spent the night working on tricks, trying to work my way up to the nelson's nemesis, cherry picker, and the cherry drop, (made that name up, its the same trick only instead of clawing it and throwing it upwards, i catch the ball and drop it which makes the pattern more fast and trippy)and later on the 423 clawed and the sandbox shuffle. So i'll be mainly working on clawed tricks now, something new for me.
And I also practiced slowly throwing 3 balls from my right hand to the left. I'm going to try and master simple tricks like this that i feel i have neglected then I'm going to once again work on the 5ball cascade.
Total practice time: 78 minutes
Juggle Time:1: 30:00
Because i wasted time writing down this post only to find that it disappeared, I'm going to briefly sum up what I did this day:
Juggled 3 basketballs, better than usual
Balanced 2 basketballs for what seemed like 10 seconds, i felt like i had control.
Practiced simply bouncing 1 ball from one hand to the other
Worked on basic tricks
Worked on the 5ball cascade.
Then I worked on the snake.
Total practice time: 90 minutes
Juggle Time:1: 11:00
Worked on 5 a bit, a few 3 ball tricks and spent a lot of time working on the inverted shower. I didn't structure my practice today >_>. And my inverted shower is looking good.
Total practice time: 71 minutes
Juggle Time:22: 36
Had a really good day, as well as juggling session :)
I got a new record doing the inverted shower. I got 55 carry overs, which could be 110 catches but i am not sure, and the pattern felt pretty controlled and clean too!!
My accuracy has improved a ton, I can easily throw a ball high in the air, straight up and down.
And i'm beginning to learn the cherry picker, i discovered a few good ways to prepare for it before attempting the actual pattern.
ALSO! my shower pattern is very clean on both sides!! And i can also juggle the box pattern (which i didn't really practice much) very comfortably now, only one problem, the right side of my box is a little off, it catches from the horizontal passing area and goes up, it should be starting below the line and throwing AT the line. I think i may have developed this bad habit a long time ago when my practice sessions weren't very structured, and i already corrected the way it did this on the shower pattern, so i'm confident i'll just do fine getting rid of it, though i still want to work on my shower pattern before i really get into practicing.
Total practice time: 136 minutes

Today i started out by trying the 4ball windmill and actually got a feel of what it's like, but soon lost my patience and got really frustrated, expecting everything to work out the way i wanted it to. So I quit and didn't even count the time i spent juggling on my log entry. Then later on after visiting the visitor's center at the temple, I came home and went right back to practice, working my way towards my goal i completely forgot about earlier, and did very well. My shower patterns are looking PERFECT and clean (i checked in the mirror) though my left side can use a little work. And noticed that all of the patterns i've learned over the months do too. And my inverted shower pattern is getting better and better! I've regained alot more patience and I don't plan on quitting this hobby any day soon, and hopefully EVER.
Today i worked on:
-5ball preperation stuff
-shower on both sides
-box a little bit, just for fun.
-factory, reverse factory, opposite side factory
-mills mess flash and the 4ball windmill a bit
Today actually went PRETTY well! =)
Woops! forgot to do the 2ball stack. Be right back! okay back. now i am DONE!
Note to self:Have faith, no madder how hard things get!
Total practice time: 141 minutes
I think i've nearly lost all my patience with this hobby. I feel like i can learn and get so much better, but now the only thing standing in my way is my patience. :(
Total practice time: 28 minutes
Juggle Time:57: 29
Spent the first half an hour working on throwing technique, the 2ball stack (Something new i thought i'd try out) And contact juggling basics; I practiced rolling a ball down my left and right arm, and also attempted balancing it at the end of my forearm, near by elbow. I can do it a bit on my right arm, but my left arm still isn't use to it.
I spent the rest of my time later, working on bettering my columns, and working on some cool tricks. First i worked the 4ball windmill, something new that i think i understand now, but can't completely do. After that i worked on the 3ball mills mess flash, which felt like the 4ball windmill, without a 4th ball. Then I worked on the inverted shower and cherry picker. Today went relatively well. Getting stuff done and going for a nature walk,(which by the way was great, it wasn't too cold nor hot, and the wind was a perfect breeze, it felt good getting out) i think, are the reasons why. :)
