I'm going to attack this pole trick with the same attitude that helped me learn the others. It basically goes like this: I don't care what happens. I don't care if I fall off and get injured. I don't care if my head slams into the pole and I have to be taken away in an ambulance. I don't care if I twist my wrist so bad I can't type, drive or work for months. In summation: fuck it I want to do this dammit!!! I'd rather do serious harm to myself attempting something that I absolutely love than sit around for the rest of my life at stupid office jobs that make me miserable.
If for some reason I'm not able to hang upside down today then I'll just have to find another place to stay in LA, unpack everything (as I'm all packed and ready to go home) and spend as much as I need to to learn and stay as long as I need to get this right. But that won't happen because I'm going to do this TODAY!. So off I go to learn to hang upside down from the stripper pole. Wish me luck.
