You read that title right - I've been missing in action. At least, I have been on here.
As we close in on March, I figured I was due for at least a brief update. I've been keeping myself busy, which is why I haven't been around here much - both on my website, and the Twitter updates. I'm hoping that come March, you will see a bit of a difference on both fronts. I'm a bit more organized, now that I have my million-and-one things sorted to a manageable level, and will be taking care of business, so to speak.
In January, I had a match against D'Arcy Dixon, which resulted in me winning by DQ. But I'll take it... even though the referee (NoMercy) was copping a bit of an attitude the entire time, even after I tried to help her. I also had my first match ever against Jennifer Blaze at GOUGE - she's a fierce competitor. Admittedly, I fell to her. She was a better competitor than I gave her credit for. I will better-prepare in the future.
This was followed up by a BARELY win over Devyn Nicole at the beginning of February - because once again NoMercy seemed to be calling things at a bit of an unfair advantage. This was followed up by a strap match against D'Arcy Dixon the following weekend, which I had every confidence in winning. But between NoMercy reffing a bit unfairly again, and interference my Lei D'Tapa... I lost.
I shouldn't have lost. I know it. D'Arcy knows it. The fans know it. So I petitioned the office in Canada for a rematch - whatever it takes. So this coming Saturday - March 1st - I will be squaring off against D'Arcy once again... there's a contract on a pole involved. Whoever gets it stays at Ring Wars Carolina. RWC has been my home since 2008 - and I plan to keep it that way.
Later in March I'll be returning to MLW for the first time in over a year. The lineup is looking good that weekend - I can't wait to see who I get to face. Be sure to place your orders early, as there are limited slots available!
I'm still really enjoying roller derby with the Rogue Rollergirls. I've really missed being a part of this team, and it feels great to be back. I've taken on a lot of responsibility with the team recently - which is part of why I haven't been around here as much. But now that things are getting settled, as I said before, you'll see a bit more of me.
If you haven't liked my team on Facebook yet - you should. Because we do awesome things, help people, and post awesome stuff. So OBVIOUSLY you should go like the Facebook page. You'll even catch a glimpse of me from time to time. True story.
Our season starts in May. I'm REALLY excited. BIG things on the horizon for Rogue this year.
I resume filming on Daniella's Surprise in March. So I'm pretty excited about moving forward with this project. The premiere for They Came From the Ether was postponed, due to severely bad weather in North Carolina. It is now scheduled for March 13th. I haven't started any new projects, as my schedule has been fairly hectic, and I've had a lot of adjusting to do. But hopefully that will change soon.
My car got beat up this month... Which is another reason I've been off the grid for a bit... I was sans-car for a little over two weeks this month. But now I have it back, so that is definitely good news!
I really can't complain. Life is pretty good right now. I miss my family, but I'm hoping to plan a visit for sometime this summer. I really don't have any complaints right now. Being super-busy isn't a bad thing, by any means.
My goal is to update this more regularly again. So I'll definitely try to get better at that. In the meantime - back to the grind.
