For almost two weeks now, I strive to venture into a different endeavor. It is an open book that blogging is my lone past time. Another hobby came into the picture and it was introduced to me by force. I just had no choice.
I was listed down as one of the players for the Commission's Mindanao Goodwill Games to be held at Prosperidad, Agusan Del Sur on May 7-11, 2009. This is entirely way out of my comfort zone! You can imagine the look on my face when my big boss blurted out that I need to practice darts because I will be representing Region XII for the competition!
Of course I reasoned out I am handicapped. I have a very poor vision. But the boss explained that they can't find anyone who have the access to play and the time to practice. So I really have no choice.
You see, all the boys at work play darts. They have been joining competitions and one of the girls at work made it to Top 4 once in the National Darts Federation after about almost 2 weeks of extensive practice. We even have our own dart board in the office! It has become a real hobby for them.
I am left with no choice but to work my a$$ off during
practice. The first two days of practice gave me excruciating pains on my arms and shoulders! In between breaks, I always see to it that I am holding a dart shaft. The boys were real patient with me in teaching me how to do things.
See the photos below for proofs ;-)

Is this for real????
With exactly one more week before the competition, I am still a work in progress. I am not a potential winner but I have learned to love the game ;-)
