On the 31st of December last year, I bought my early bird ticket for RollerCon. Not knowing if I would actually be able to go.
Because well, when I am not Furrrocious 'the-girl-trying-to-become-a-derby-girl', I have a job as a social worker and tons of student loans. And the USA is just not right across the road... (read: expensive as hell to get to, especially in the summer time..)
But this week I was finally able to buy my plane ticket! Flying to Texas first to visit my relatives, while I am there I hope I'll be able to practice with a great league like the Dallas Derby Devils, and go to the Texas Roller girls bout against Denver on the 16th of July in Austin.
And then at the end of July I'll go to Vegas for five crazy days, filled with breathing, sweating, eating, laughing, partying smoking and drinking Roller derby!!
I am pretty sure it will be wayyyy more then I can handle, but I am super excited about it!
I think I will probably only survive one day, and then I won't be able to walk anymore, because of all the pain in my muscles!!! LOL! :p
But it will all be worth it. As I will learn sooooooo much, and I'll bring it all back to Amsterdam and put it to good use right here.
This rookie is on her way to RollerCon... even if for now, it's still only in my head! :p
