I haven’t been active on the forums for a while. I’m not asking if anyone misses me, and I’m not going to go into a giant “my life has lost all meaning” rant. But, the truth is I’ve been yoyoing very little. I pick up a yoyo maybe 2-3 times a week but only 1 or two out of those times do I actually yoyo, and less then 1 out of three times do I actually go somewhere with it. I have gone to a local club pretty much every month, but that probably the only enjoyable/creative/satisfying time yoyoing in the whole month.
I don’t necessarily fell burnt out, but more “meh” towards throwing. I can’t seem to get into a rhythm where I feel competent at my tricks and ready to learn or create like I often used to. I’m not any sort of sponsored player, and I don’t do this for a living, so my main reason to throw has been as an outlet for creativity and having a skill to practice that is so different from everything in my daily life.
This has been kind of long and rambling, but why yoyo? What gives throwing meaning and makes your body and brain enjoy this hobby?
