My goals are progressing smoothly. I have recently been able to flash 8 balls and qualify 7. I have yet to flash 6 clubs but I think I am getting close because I can fairly easily qualify 5. I can also qualify with 6 rings, and now for the big news...for the first time ever yesterday I flashed 7 rings! So even within the last week I have made progress in my goals and so far it looks like it looks very likely that I will be able to accomplish them.

Last month I went to my very first juggling convention and was able to meet many amazing jugglers who taught me a ton. It was the most fun i have had in a long time. Since I have improved so much from my last youtube video, I am currently working on another that will really be able to show what I am capable of. I now have some new goals for before I turn 19 this October and I will continue to update on how close I am getting to succeeding. If i do succeed then i will come out with another youtube video purely dedicated to my accomplishments. If I do not succeed however I will still post a video showing how close I got. So in the next seven and a half months I hope to be able to juggle: 5 clubs for 50 catches, 6 clubs for 12 catches, 6 rings for 50 catches, 7 rings for 14 catches, 7 balls for 50 catches, and finally 8 balls for 16 catches. I have made a plan to accomplish these goals so i will regularly be updating my progress. Wish me luck!

So a pretty exciting development in my juggling has happened this last week, I landed my first 5 up 360. For those of you who don't know, this means that for the first time ever, while I was juggling five balls, I threw all of them high into the air so that there was nothing in my hands and turned in a complete circle to catch and continue juggling all of them. It was awesome I celebrated a lot. In other news, since I last posted, I have also flashed 5 clubs and over qualified 6 balls. I keep improving and I hope to have more to talk about soon.

No parties lately, probably because I haven't really gotten the word out, but its ok because i am still improving so as soon as I get hired the show will be packed with even more cool stuff. I am currently figuring out body throws with clubs and hopefully i will be a master in a month or two. I have also developed a really cool connection trick with 5 balls that I can land 80 % of the time. Things are going well.

As of today I can make 8-12 catches of 6 balls and I have gotten more consistent with my 3 up 360s with 5 balls. I have successfully done 7 catches of 7 balls and 6 catches of 6 rings. My last party was for my AP teacher and I dropped only once, it was a very successful party we had a blast.
