There IS crying in roller derby. In fact, for someone as emotionally charged as me, there’s been quite a bit.
I just found out that I passed my yellow star test.
I have tears streaming down my face and I can’t stop smiling because I am SO. PROUD.
So far in my derby career there have been three instances of crying for joy and/or excitement, and many more of frustration and sorrow. Even more almosts for the latter, but that’s ok. That’s the reason why I’m crying right now. It wouldn’t be so amazing if I hadn’t worked my arse off for it!
I didn’t really expect this so I am kind of in shock. I don’t even know what else to write. I have to dry my tears and go to work now anyway, so that’s probably for the best.
