Tales of Inspiration #3 – The Hobby Hoarder aka my friend, Libs
Libs and I go way back. I’m talking back to when I was a junior/senior in high school and she was in middle school (yea that long ago and yes, I’m that much older than she is). As I graduated from high school we seemed to go our separate ways but we recently reconnected and I was amazed at what a remarkable young lady she has grown into. Living in New York City, she is on a quest to become a professional amateur comedian. She has taken it upon herself to complete 52 hobbies in 52 weeks ON TOP of her regular job. If that doesn’t inspire you to get up and get moving, here is just a small list of hobbies she has tried so far: Rock Climbing, Beat Boxing, Paddle Boarding, Ventriloquism, Stilt Walking, Breakdancing, Flash Mobbing, Stunt Jumping, Ziplining, Subway Performing, Unicycle Riding, (deep breath), Knife Throwing, Plane Flying, Birdhouse Making, Jedi Training, Archery, Modern Dance, Beer Brewing, Steel Pan Drumming, Rifle Shooting, Samurai Sword Fighting, Speed Dating, Boxing, Karate, Hip-Hop Dancing, and Pole Dancing. But my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE hobby that she has hoarded has by far been the Kangoo Nation Class. I had never seen anything like it! This particular class she had taken was a Kangoo Hopping Hip-Hop Dance class. To get the full effect, you’ll have to watch her video. It looks like so much fun!
Her video and narrative inspired me to look it up online and see if I could find something local that I could try out for myself. Unfortunately, where I live it is not offered anywhere. Her solution for me? Go get certified and start my own classes. I just might have to take her up on it because it looks like so much fun. Who knows? I might start a Kangoo Nation Class craze here in the midwest.
