I just got back from my second Burner event Firefly in VT. I really feel like I get and belong as a Burner now. The sense of community and artistic drive they share I am so happy to be a part of. I feel my artistic development as a dancer and performer are just comping into their own. I will be at Burning Man this...

Been a while since my last update:

1) Settled with insurance over the car for 3k. Its less than I would like but enough to put me in a car at least. I think I will be paying a bit of money and upgrading to a 2006 Hyundai Elantra. The car is all black with dark tinted windows. I think I need to become cooler...

Doing so much better. I didnt realize how stressed out I was about the car situation. I got a nice little rental car and it looks like things are looking up. My freedom to just pack up everything in my car in go is such a part of my healthy state of mine and I seem to forgot that part while focusing on not being...

Been awhile since my last blog, but that is already because I didn't have much positive things to write about and I hate using this to puke over anyone who reads it. So basically the long and short is that my car broke down then after paying way to much to fix it, I found it was still stalling out and basically they didn...

Great week!

This week I reconnected with a lot of friends outside my normal group and I was greatly rewarded for it. I grow more and more in love with the burners and their gatherings. Went to a rave all night into the morning on Fri/Sat and saw so many people/friends new and old who I hope to get to know better. Dancing...

I am my own worse 'cockblock' and I don't know how to change it. I hang out with circus folk, dancers, burlesque performers, burners, and poly-people so I often find myself in cuddle piles, watching friends walking around naked, and being constantly bombarded with flirtation and sexual tension. I have this strong sense of not wanting to offend and especially not violate the bodies...

this was a very interesting blog. . . . clearly you just need someone that'll tell you straight-up so you don't have to worry about any mixed signals. . .

saw you in the hooping group, excellent work my friend ! and beats antique, yesssss.

fire_hooper:

Hey there! Nice to meet a fellow hooper. Yeah I posted that after finally reaching a sort of breaking point. A friend of mine whom I had a little thing for (and my other friends knew it) was in one of our cuddle piles and was totally made out with by said friends in front of me. Turned out that she was very uncomfortable about it (though I just found out in the last couple days about that part) but felt like it was sort of the thing to do and since it didnt go further than a few kisses and grouping hands she let it go. The Boston Spin scene is very poly and I felt like this sort of thing was wrong and when I asked some friends about it they seem to blame the girls for not speaking up and that I was just being too uptight to just accept that everyone is poly and open and its ok to just do that with each other.

What I did this last week is start spending time with other folk, poly and just other spinners. What came to me was that it wasnt about being poly or open at all because I completely comfortable friendly flirting around and being affectionate and just having fun with them. What I belive now is that these other people are just the same drunken sexual predatorial frat boys I could never stand but they are dressing up their actions with the progressive, positive ideals like being open and polyamory. I needed to get out of the main group and get some perspective and realize its them not me. Yeah I am a bit inhibited and do need some clarity before doing more than cuddling but I don't feel that is a bad thing and incidents like the ones I have been seeing all summer with these people kind of made me resolute in not just reading into a situation without some clear consent and interest being communicated.

No matter what scene you are in there is drama after all hehe

Thanks for the compliment I work very hard at my art. I can't believe it took me so long to realize what I think I always knew that I am a dancer. It took my plastic hoop to let it out and I am so luckily to know exactly what I am meant to do with my life now. I dropped 50 lbs and 10 years off my face the first year I started hooping it turned my life around and gave it purpose. I have felt artistically identified for all my life and I guess I never thought about expressing that art in movement before hooping. I love it, I love it, I love it.

What is the spinning like in Ohio? I used to live in Kent for a couple years btw. What got you into hooping and how long have you been spinning?

This just repulses me. All three of our last Presidents were admitted drug users and yet there is a decision not only keeping Marijuana a Schedule I narcotic but they deny millions of people the medical befits. I have fucking MS and I know I will need Marijuana eventually to function. I take this very personal. \" target="_blank">http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44806723...

I agree with you, I am definitely going to need a smaller hoop to.do breaks with(if that's what they're called!) except ay the same time I love dancing and bigger hoops are easier to dance with. WHAT TO DO?!

fire_hooper:

You just end up with a dozen hoops all with different sizes for whatever mood you are in. It only becomes a big problem when you start shopping for a LED or firehoop because they get expensive to get one in every size. At least there are attachable quickwicks for firehoops. I will say I keep finding I get smaller and smaller and that my dance movements just have to get cleaner and more controlled to compensate. You have a nice dance style though just have fun with it.
