The latest installment in an occasional series: how I unplugged over the weekend.
As you may remember, last week I explained that sometimes unplugging isn’t about resting. It’s about doing something completely different from what you usually do.
This week’s unplugging post is simply a short addendum to that.
Havi the Pirate Queen is completely correct when she says that roller derby is the best stress-buster ever.
- It has all the best elements of sport with just the right amount of theater to make it really fun (and I don’t mean that in a wrestling sort of way).
- It has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of your life. It’s not like anything that happens is going to remind you of that thing on your to-do list you forgot to do.
- You get to hang out with friends, amidst a crowd of fans that feels like they could be your friends.
- The screaming is also good.
I am now a total convert and raving fan. Wherever you live, I encourage you to seek out your local league. If you are in Portland, check out the Rose City Rollers. Havi supports the Guns N Rollers, and therefore so do I. But you are free, of course, to pick your own favorite.
We’ll see you there.
