Hey everyone!

Apparently I’m supposed to say hello and a bit about myself, so here goes:

  • I’ve been juggling for about 5 - 6 years, but just recently started getting more serious (but no TOO serious haha)
  • I’m a springboard diver, which is helpful with other circus things. But unfortunately all the pools are closed right now….
  • Rings are currently my favorite prop.
  • I don’t like olives.
  • Every year I go to Circus Smirkus camp, and I’m hoping to get on their traveling youth circus one day. Fingers crossed!

Well that’s about it for my introduction. Hopefully I’ll be posting a regular practice log, which might be motivating, we’ll see :)

Welcome Kyle!
What does more serious (and TOO serious) mean for you?

I would have loved to learn springboard diving, but never found a good club in any of the places I lived. Maybe one day! Oh and I share your disgust for olives ;)

Oh good - I thought it was just me on the olives.

I’m told they’re an “acquired taste” but I fail to see why anyone would want to push through that learning phase

That's how I feel about coffee and beer. ;)
Olives, however, I have liked since I was a kid. At least the green ones. Now I also like black olives. (Then of course there are those cheap fake-black olives that some people put on pizzas and in salads... Those are not good.)

I too love olives, especially stuffed with a whole garlic clove or feta. I used to not like them but then I found out it was because I had first tasted the awful fake black ones first.

I also don't understand why people push through the disgust barrier for coffee, & cigarettes! Why on earth does anyone go through the effort required to get addicted to nicotine?!

Look what you've started Kyle!

I wouldn't have thought coffee was an acquired taste. I loved it the first moment I tried it, anyway.

As I've got older I've found that I like it more bitter. I now have no sugar and only a splash of milk. I can no longer drink instant coffee because, even without sugar, it tastes too sweet.

Beers are hugely variable. When I was a kid I was happy enough with manufactured lager. My first pint of bitter at the age of 19 was a revelation. That was the day I stopped drinking lager.

I always loved boiled eggs and hated olives and then all of a sudden I loved olives and hated boiled eggs. It's almost as if some connection in my brain got them mixed up or something.

Hahaha didn’t mean to start an olive war! :P

I'm with you on coffee and beer! Although I guess I did try to like beer, I was glad to give it up and not look back...

Bloody heretics the lot of you. Except Maria. Come the revolution, Maria gets to live.

I’d say that for me at least, "not TOO serious" means I want to keep having fun with juggling, and not become obsessed with being really good or getting certain tricks just because I feel they’re "necessary." I don’t think that’s going to happen, but I still sometimes like to say it just to remind myself. That’s not to say I don’t want to get better or achieve high goals, just that I'm to make sure I don't lose sight of what’s important to me.

Olives are like people, some are a lot nicer than others.
ps colour has nothing to do with it.
