So, in my derby world, I've just had my last practice of 2013. I can look back and say to myself, 'wow! look what you did this year!' I can also say, 'geez, Jen, you were also kind of a dick at times...try to let the little things go in this next year!' We, as a league, won't truly finish out a full year until February, really. But last night's practice was great. We finished 2013 with a full group practice. We skated our hearts out and sweated our lady-balls off. When I drove home last night, I was happy with how this year was ending.
Time to reflect, with some pics from the derby Christmas party!

|#1 NSO, Steph Woz (a.k.a. Woz Scabs) made a skate ornament for every single skater!|
|Rob In Da Hood! Plus Emma Getcha showing another of her talents, as our evening's entertainment.|
|The 4 Jens...each clearly with her own personality! (we all just happened to sit down next to each other...not planned or staged! Weird Jen gravitational pull, I guess?)|
So...looking forward...this year my resolutions will be a little different, I think. I am turning 40 in a few months, so this is kind of a big year for me. I want to improve as a person, a skater, a fellow human in the world. I don't want to change who I am, I just want to be a better version of that person.
Are you a resolutions person?
Are you generally pretty good about keeping your resolutions?
How do they change as each year passes...do they get more spiritual-, emotional-, physical-based?
Make more friends aware that Roller Derby is on Cape Cod! ;)
OH...one more side note:
We've had more guests!!!
Bootiful Banshee from Mass Attack Roller Derby in Taunton brought her friend Valra Gunz from Providence Roller Derby to show us a thing or two about hitting.
Bay State Brawlers) came back with a few of her friends!
Great way to round out the year...the future of Cape Cod Roller Derby looks bright!
