Wait a bit...
It's August the 8th... (more than a month since the last post, sorry)
I started this project in October. That's only two months~ish away...
i has a sad
A year is almost up? I know Worlds snuck up on me this summer, but have I really spent that much time playing all-cotton strings?
I was thinking about trying some more thin-gapped yo-yos once this cone ran out, but I'm not ready for it yet.
Ed is a lifer, so he doesn't have this same mindset (even though his year is up in only one month). Steve probably has better things to do and another three cones in his attic or packed away somewhere. I have been using strings faster than either of my companions, and I still have another two years or so (judging by the diameter, not the diminishing circumference). But this is still the home stretch, and we are about to be "done"? This is the same feeling that I got graduating from high school.
I don't know if I will actually change anything after the year is up. Maybe get some more slick 8, if anybody carries it still. I have absentmindedly broken the 15-strings-at-a-time rule by having one on all of my yo-yos at once. I like the process, and don't want to make a bundle of strings ahead of time to take them out of a bundle. It would feel like cheating.
...have I made every throw count?
I don't think so. I have played more holistically, but in retrospect, I could have done more. I let distractions grip me, and have narry a new "real" video made (but one in the works). I have a month to catch up, and another month to dwell on it. I will keep updates coming.
