So thank you, keep it going. I'd love to hear from more of you, more often. Use the comments, follow me on Twitter, make a recipe and tell me how you liked it. A friend told me yesterday that he took exception with a point in one of my posts: bring it on! I know a lot about this, and I have very decided opinions, but my mind is open and I view life as a journey. If I don't learn new things, go new places, or encounter new viewpoints every day, well, the day's not done.
I came late to skating and to teaching, and it changed my life, which is why I feel so strongly the transformative power of this sport. It transformed me. Here's to another year on the journey, and continued transformation.
Thank you everyone.
My 2010 figure skating and coaching resolutions:
- To finally decide whether to go for the Master Group Rating, or to wait for PSA to come to their senses and create a Master level in Basic Skills/developmental coaching.
- To start lobbying PSA to create a Master level in Basic Skills/developmental coaching.
- Nag Hyland to get his ratings.
- To be able to skate, credibly, the Second Test Figures (we'll save "to a testable level" for another time).
- To give management the benefit of the doubt.
- To improve my high-freestyle teaching chops
- To get at least 50 followers for Xanboni! (You guys have to help me with that!)
Thanks, IcePact for the inspiration
