Sorry everyone that I haven't posted for a while I've just been so busy!  Anyway I told you about how our ice skating competition was on September 10, and I have to say it went pretty well!  There were five girls in my group including me.  When my group's warm up started and I got on the ice, I tried to do my double loop, but I just couldn't land it!  I was so upset.  So I think that really freaked me out because I was falling on a really important jump! It turned out when I was up to compete, I did end up falling on my double loop :(  mostly because, first I was already freaked out about not landing it in warm up and secondly because I was going super slow!  Like my dad says "Were you skating through molasses or what?"  Don't worry he's just like that, strict and honest.  Which is actually a really good thing.  See one of my biggest problems is that it is really hard for me to take criticism.  Here's and example.  When someone says "I think you could get a little higher on your jump"  I say "I thought it was pretty high though"  when I say this I know it's stupid, I can always get higher!  Duh!  So back to the competition I ended up taking third out of fifth.  So not bad but not exactly good either.  But I had a fun time and that's what really counts! :)

P.S.  Regionals is on September 29!  Time to practice, practice PRACTICE!!!
