No longer the 'split girl'

This past week brought a much anticipated breakthrough for me. I have a new trick in the show!

In the trapeze nomenclature the term 'split girl' refers to the lowest level flyer in the troupe, almost always a female, who is hired because she is able to perform the most rudimentary trick in trapeze, the split. If likened to standard business practices it is an 'assistant' position. A great many female flyers start out ...

were covered in relief, and even a 6 inch bird had every single feather
depicted. Detail is very important here. This is also true to everyday
life. When the maids ...

... also marked with red and pink ribbons so it's nearly impossible to get lost. But the snow is very weak at some point and so i fell through quite a lot, with a brown muddy shoe as a result. I also fell flat on my face a couple of times because the snow makes the walkway very slippery. I also tripped over branches a couple of times, resulting in a few bruises.

The hike became a bit easier as i walked around laze Ozenuma, although the snow was still very frustrating ...
