What other activities does everyone participate in? I'm a varsity cheerleader, play violin, and am in French and International clubs. I also coach gymnastics twice a week.

I don't do sports with balls or defense either lol. I do gymnastics (no duh!), and track. Next year in high school I'm going to do cross country, diving and track along with gym of course. Oh I like rock climbing. But I'm not on like a rock climbing team or anything although they did want me and my friend to join their team after they saw how strong we are =]And then i do the normal things like sleep and eat and go to school and church and hang out with friends and im on the computer a lot but i dont think thats what you wanted to no

Another old thread rises from the dead...lol.

I play sports with balls but I'm only good at ones with big balls like soccer and basketball and volleyball. Tennis, softball, not so much. Right now I play soccer for my school varsity team and I run track (distance).

I'm also on school newspaper staff, in National Honor Society, History club (have to be in it to go on the cool overnight out-of-state trips!), and i'm student council president for my grade.

This summer I'm going to take a tumbling class, and at some point I really want to try martial arts but I don't have time now.

Everyone is so busy!! I only dive and i'll be coaching the optionals in the summer.

Last year on the other hand. I did gymnastics (level 10), diving(club and high school), track(high school), and I swam on my high school team.

But I dive from 8:30am-3:30pm 6 days a week in the summer.. that's bout it.

I miss doing gymn and all the other activities, but my body made me make a choice. There just aren't enough hours in the day!!

I used to juggle professionally. I still practice occasionally, but I don't do shows anymore.

Most of my time not spent coaching or training is spent working on music. My career as a freelance composer (see sig) seems to be getting off the ground, and I also occasionally do songs for OCRemix.

Thats certainly a unique thing to do. How old were you when you started juggling and what made you decide to get into it?

Thats awesome that you juggle, Geoffrey Taucer.

That reminds me... I do have a unicycle. I think my uncle gave it to me for my 11th birthday? I'm 14 now. I'm not great at riding it cuz I never practice but someday maybe I'll ride it on the beam lol. Most people don't believe me when I tell them I have a unicycle.

My cousin taught me the basics of 3-ball juggling when I was 9 or 10, and for awhile I didn't do much more than that. Then when I was a freshman in highschool, I had a math teacher who was a juggler, and he's the one who really got me into the higher-level stuff. That's when I started picking up more complex patterns, working on higher numbers, as well as other objects like clubs and torches. I started doing it professionally that summer, and continued until shortly after I graduated highschool. It also helped that one of my best friends in school was into it nearly as much as I was. I was actually approaching a couple of world records by the end of senior year.

After I graduated, I was much more busy coaching and I had little contact with my juggling buddies, so I haven't really juggled as much since then.
