Inspiration Weekend 2017

I recently went to Inspiration Weekend and totally didn't expect to place in the Jack and Jill!

I had originally signed up for the Amateur Jack and Jill when I had registered back in September or so. A couple of weeks before Inspiration Weekend, just before Swingin' at the Savoy, I suddenly decided to switch my registration to the All-Star. I figured that, even if I didn't feel that I necessarily qualified for the All-Star, I shouldn't continue to label myself as an amateur, especially since I've been teaching locally. And I didn't want to "aim downwards" so to speak, because I think that ends up inflating the perception of what 'amateur' means.

Anyway, looks like it turned out for the best. Steven and I placed 2nd!
