Focus Areas

Not much to report this period – just working some basics. I tried to spend one day out of every three working presentation, reloads, and malfunctions.

If you aren’t dry practicing. . . WHY NOT? It’s not hard to find 10 minutes a day to dry practice, and it’s COMPLETELY FREE. Take ten minutes you’d be spending vegging out on Instagram or in front of the TV and turn it into a tangible skill.
