Summary of the last few weeks:
- Played in my first tournament with my team, "Attack of the C-squads". It's for teams with mostly newer-level skaters, and it was a great intro to playing with everyone!
- Got sick, still having trouble working sleep schedule out w evening practices + 9am class. Hard to get de-adrenalined from evening practice in time for bed!!! Was sick enough to use Nyquil last night though, and ended up sleeping 10 hrs.
- Getting ready for my main conference of the year next week, have poster almost ready, RAs set up to collect data on a different project while I'm gone, and working on a follow-up anlaysis on an old project that would be helpful to have before a networking meeting I'm having.
- I've been going to a thing called "power skate" lately, at an indoor rink w a wooden floor. More endurance-focused than regular derby practice, and it's great for practicing explosive starts and going fast around slippery corners!
Other update: I got a thing where I pay $20 this month for unlimited $1.99 Uber rides, and it works on any ride up to $25. As much as I'd like to not support Uber, it's been soooooo helpful this month, especially for those $10-$20 rides to Sunday practice! Interested to see if Lyft starts offering something similar.
