January has been a terrible month. I've been in jail for 22 days because of a DUI and ended up losing nearly 18 pounds within 2 weeks. I'm working on gaining all that and more back with protein and workouts. Been kicking a bit since I got out and enjoying it.

Taking orders for footbags. Currently on the job hunt and would love the extra cash from stitching.

Sorry this is so short, but I'll be around posting highlights and pictures and maybe videos again soon.

I'm glad your kicking again. It helps me get my mind off things, hope it helps you in the same way. Sorry for your terrible month.

Hey Holly, first of all, I just wanna commend you on being a girl who footbags. That's so rad. My past girl friends/girls who i'm friends with were never too interested in footbag. The girl i'm with now actually plays "hacky sack" and may be interested in freestyle soon. But yeah, most girls I know think footbag is either stupid or weird... which i'm not denying the second one haha but just again, mad props on your bag skill. Hope to kick with you at a jam/tournament sometime in the future. (Going to Grass, by any chance?)

ah, if i get a job... ill definitely be making some footbag trips... and grass is at the top of the list.

been focusing on getting a job... its been hard. but im trying to keep my head up and look forward.

been having fun with footbag. nothing new really, just consistency. also been playing a lot of disc golf. my drive needs work, but ive got a damn good sidearm. cant wait for the weather to get a little bit warmer.

won an award at a local design competition, and its going onto nationals. hopefully ill win something there as well.

edit: cant wait to see the video, matt! you kick so much ass!
got a few footbags for sale, and taking orders. also considering selling some of my extra climacools and gunits. anyone interested in size 6?

good news, got a badass job. working from home doing design for a company called ethos3.com. making pretty damn good money.

kicked for the first time in a while. feels good. for some reason lately, when i take a break from footbag and return a few weeks/months later, i seem to have more consistency. been hitting the usual stuff, just a few more contacts and a lot less jumping around all willy nilly.

thinking of selling some of my extra footbag shoes. i have like 5 pairs of every brand, its rediculous. gonna be moving out soon, so might need to downsize a bit. if anyone is interested in size 6 shoes, hit me up. i'll probably take pictures and make a for sale thread this week, along with the footbags i have for sale (that's right... i have some, and am still taking orders)

missing the footbag community A LOT. call me if you wanna talk! (my phone number is in my facebook info)

This is Digit, my new 6 toe kitten. She is a Siamese Hemingway at about 3 months old. I got her from the pound last week, and she is just an adorable sweetheart.

I moved into my own place with a friend of mine named Teela! Finally, I'm out of the parents' house. I have a whole covered backporch to myself, and have been using the space wisely for footbag!

Living in my own place has been great! It's taken me a while to unpack everything, but it's a really sweet condo for a really good price.

Footbag has been great too. I've been doing a lot of just mixing my current tricks different ways, and would like to start learning new sets so I can learn new double dexes. I have pixie on the strong side down, and its a little wonky on the left but thats about it. Any suggestions?

welp. got down the b2b ssdlos... went to footbag last night and was having a good practice... until the kitten decided she wanted to try to get the bag in mid string. instead of stomping on her, i tried to get away and landed really badly. tore a ligament in my knee. fuck.

on top of that, learning how to walk in a brace is hard. havent figured out the art of walking down stairs, and totally bailed going down my boyfriend's front steps. now my ankle is twisted on the other leg. fuck.

making footbags while i have to stay in bed the next few weeks. if you want one, send me a pm or email. id love to make you one.

Wow you have quite the aptitude for injuries! i'm sorry to hear about that. look on the bright side... you've just answered the timeless question of whether man (specifically you) is inheritately good or evil. sure you could have sided with thomas hobbes (evil), but i'm glad to see that you settled for jean-jacque rousseau (good). congrats you're a good person.
