I like being "out of the ordinary" lol.
I can juggle, sorta lol. I can do the 3 ball cascade very well for however amount of time. I can to the Tennis Ball trick decently but after 30 seconds or so I drop one. And I can juggle two balls in one hand (for like a count of 20 or so throws)
I have managed to swallow a sword and get a 20 throw count like 3-4 times in a normal 3 ball cascade pattern.
Juggling isn't as much as its cracked up to be.
I tend to master a skill (or get really good), then try learning another one. Tho I never stop with the ones Ive already mastered.
Good luck to you bra.
Keep practicing
You are right. Thanks for the inspiration.

"There are literally THOUSANDS & THOUSANDS of jugglers in the world."

... and yet some of us still manage to find work. Go figure.

Don't worry about what everyone else is doing. Do your thing, whatever that thing is, and become really good at it. Answer a calling. That's what will set you apart from the rest, not your choice of skill.

I agree with you. When I am street busking, I wear stylish clothes to stand out. A fool in the green room told me I should not do that because I will get arrested. That one guy is a true nerd.

So you're saying that that one guy should get really really good at being a nerd?

No, I was not saying that. I was saying that nerd has no reason to criticize me for the way I do my business.
