Going to give my blog some more attention! Okay so, it’s been a few months after quest now, and my leg armour has come in! So last night I ran around Ballarat Swordcraft with a heap of armour and something very new to me; A SWORD AND SHIELD. Crazy to think, but I’ve pretty much only run as an archer in my entire year and a bit at swordcraft. So I picked up a sword and shield and gave it a go, and man are my arms tired! It was a lot of fun and felt like a completely different game. I was pretty terrible. Archery is like second nature to me now, so I had a lot to concentrate on with the shield, what they were doing, what I was doing, and just generally trying to get a hit in. It was a big learning curve but awesome fun and can’t wait to start training and getting better and better!
When I was about 8 years old I had this bikini that I loved to wear, until the day came that my mom told me that I probably shouldn’t wear it anymore because it didn’t look flattering for my “body type”. I may have been young, but it didn’t escape my notice that my sisters were still allowed to wear their bikinis in our pool. I know she meant well, but looking back she probably has no idea how damaging it was for her to do that to me. It took so many years of hiding and hating my body for me to learn to love it. Today I finally felt brave and confident enough to purchase my first bikini to wear after fourteen years… And damn, I look awesome!
