I'm thinking of keeping this 32" prismatic deco hoop for myself!
The stack is growing, but today was tough! Having a non-negotiable daily quota of 6-8 hoops is definitely a challenge. When I woke up (late) my hands were aching. The ability to tape a hoop smoothly comes with a price on the body when exercised excessively. I would be wise to spread my hoop making out over the whole year instead of two months. ;/
With all the other requirements of life - food needs to be shopped for, and made! The dogs need a walk! The dishes need doing! The garbage must be taken out! The lawn needs to be mowed! There's laundry to do! The battery in my truck is dead and I need a jump! I used to have a social life! - it's no wonder I didn't get any of the hoops made before work today. I taped all 8 of them during my shift again, but I shouldn't keep doing that. I've been rushing through the five or six hours of work they want me to do in a frenzied few hours and spend the rest of the night taping hoops and listening to podcasts. If I get fired before the end of June I will have to go waitress on the highway and I would rather apply a cheese grater to my elbow, with tension.
So that's where I'm at with the GeoRev Project today. I want a day off from production but I'm only a week into this and don't think I deserve one until I can complete double my quota: 16-20 hoops in a day. The thought of what that might do to my hands is a bit scary. I will work through the fear and have faith that my hands will get stronger. Thankfully I am still very much enjoying the satisfaction of making a beautiful new hoop for someone I don't know yet to dance with. That's what's keeping me going, dear reader. That and the abject terror of failure.
