Lately my Twenty Time has been really tough, but my struggle has come to an end. I met with my teacher and explained that I have been baking every weekend and practicing on the trampoline. While both of these are really fun for me, my parents think I need to spend less time on a school project. She gladly said it doesn’t have to be as often as your making it. For the baking part of my project I think that working with bread, doughnuts, pastry dough or puff pastry, a mousse tartlet, ice cream, cake, and a bar would be my main projects that I have left to do. When I think about what needs to be done and then start doing it I get really tired. Most people don’t understand how long everything takes to do or make, for example, the italian meringue buttercream frosting that I use takes 40 minutes to make. And I have to wait for the egg whites in the buttercream to come to room temperature which takes about 20 minutes. Then I have to prep the cupcake batter and bake them and clean everything, frost the cupcakes and then wrap them. As you can see the list goes on and on, I spent 8 hours on a cupcake because I videotaped it and cleaned, this process should have taken about 3. Then again, I did complete a Dark Chocolate Cupcake filled with Orange Curd Custard, topped with candied orange peel, orange italian meringue buttercream, and a decoration written in chocolate saying 2016. I think that if I upload less often and do more outside things that this could alleviate a lot of the money that goes in to my Twenty Time project. This weekend I attempted a back tuck with my dad spotting me, but I ended up needing someone else to spot me, because back tucks aren’t very easy. I can do a standing power back tuck on the trampoline, where I get the least bounce as possible, I’ve decided that one weekend I will go to Bull City Gymnastics center and work on my back tuck there, and hopefully learn how to do a double backflip on the trampoline. I am working on my front split and backbend right now, I practice twice a day, every day for about an hour and a half. Then on the weekends and thursdays I work on my aerial/dive cartwheel, front handspring and trampoline tricks. In conclusion I now have end goals and a plan for the rest of the year. Some goals: side aerial, front aerial, scorpion (moderately), back handspring, back tuck, and a parallel spinning kick. I am looking forward to the rest of the year.
