We made it to thrown weapons practice again yesterday, and I advanced my score significantly. Last week my best royal round was a 25, yesterday, I threw a 41. Mind you, I also threw a whole lotta junk, but still, very respectable.

Throwing axes feels strangely confidence inducing. There's something about standing there, preparing to throw kinda heavy things, and knowing I can do it, and will hit the target, and it's going to stick, and stick hard. Throwing knives on the other hand, not so much. I'm not as successful there, which apparently is normal. I'm a little afraid of them, possibly from years of conditioning that "knives are dangerous, be careful, don't run with the point out, don't run with a knife!" and then... THEY ALSO BOUNCE SPECTACULARLY. Which is kinda scary when they bounce backward point first.

Then of course, I also get to hang out with people I don't get to spend time with all that often, which is good. Final plus? It's inspired me enough to write in this journal again, which is a good thing. We'll be making it to practice again next week.
