I have an overflowing plate of goodness on my hands right now. Too busy to blog, which I consider a good think although maybe all of you disagree.

So let’s see… derby. Yes, derby!

I missed an opportunity to bout last weekend and I’m still kicking myself in the ass for that one. “Whine, whine, I’m not ready, whine, whine, whine.” I know that it’s my responsibility to further my skills by participating in bouts but I really wish someone had told me I had no choice BUT to bout. Regardless of whether I was bouting or not it was still a good mash up and Tokyo Bombers Girls had one representative, YoYo Akiyo. It was YoYo’s first derby bout and despite the language and rule difficulties she still came away with MVP Jammer award. Woo-hoo!

Rob Shaw took some pretty awesome pics of the match. You can check them out here.

After much thought and consideration, I’ve decided to change my name from Bet T. Rage (which I wasn’t really fond of anyway) to… WAIT FOR IT…

I wanted to somehow combine elements of both of my homes (Canada and Japan). I think I done good on this one. I would call it a success and lucky for me it’s unique enough to not be rejected by the international roster, I hope.

What else is happening in my life?

I started and finished the Hunger Games series and absolutely loved every page of the three book series. I think there were times when I actually thought I lived in Panum. I went through a bit of withdrawal when I finished but found solace in Factory Girls by Leslie Chang, which is what I am currently reading.

Between derby and full-time work I somehow manage to make time for two online courses. I’m taking the courses through Vancouver Island University and so far the experience has been positive. It’s the first time I’ve ever taken part in online learning so it’s had a slight learning curve but I seem to have figured out.

That’s about it for me. My birthday is coming up on October 5 so make sure you swing by and wish me a happy birthday.
