Result #75: I can now add pins to my juggling répertoire.

#75: I'm going to learn to juggle bowling pins.

Due Date: 3-16-2015

Resolution: It's weird to think that I've reached an age where a higher percentage of my existence is now post learning to juggle. Currently I know how to juggle either two spherical items with one hand or three spherical items with two hands.

I've always wanted to learn to juggle bowling pins, but I'm not fully sure if this is because I want to learn the skill or if I just want to own three bowling pins. Either way within a year, I'm going to fulfill both aspects of this dream.

Update #1: The Conclusion.

I bought these juggling pins soon after making the resolution to learn to juggle pins. I already knew how to juggle balls so I figured it was just going to be a matter of practice and practice I did.

Even though both techniques are very similar it's much hard to learn to juggle pins. Part of me thought that since I knew the basics of juggling that it would just be a matter of minutes for me to learn to juggle pins.

It actually ended up taking much more work than I thought.

After discovering that I wasn't going to pick it up by just doing what I already know I decided I had to start from scratch.

First I used one pin in one hand to get used to flicking my wrist just right to get the proper pin action. Then I went to tossing one pin back and forth with both hands, then added one pin then another.

Granted I can't juggle pins at the level of a street performer but I can add pin juggling to my list of party tricks.

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
