LIFE: Hooping with Black Rainbow & Friends – Terminal 23 New York City’s Jordan Gym (May 2014)

vashtie_basketball_520141Back in May – I got asked to hoop with my Parisian Friends from Black Rainbow Agency, Jay & Greg, which was super fun. I never get asked to play with the boys, probably because the ones that live state-side know that I’m a dud when it comes to playing sports. I think my Parisian friends knew that too, but they were down for some fun-filled hooping. I was excited and super nervous, just because I feel like I always end up indirectly getting hurt. Anyways. It was good times. The Jordan Gym, Terminal 23, provides you with a uniform and Jordans – but, since my feets were too small I improvised and brought my own…literally

INTERVIEW: Vashtie on The Combat Jack Show (Audio)


Note to self…maybe never do an interview after 2 glasses of Rosé. Sometimes the perks of having a bartender friend that never lets your glass empty works against you in an interview. Ha, actually – it’s not that bad…I’m just being overly-critical I think. I got some good feedback from this interview on Twitter and Instagram, mainly from other folks who identified with a lot of what I said. I don’t know, you can be the judge…the judge to hear my annoying voice and more annoying ramblings.

Yikes. For someone who rarely talks that much to people I am not very familiar with…I rambled.

Thanks to Reggie Ossé and Premium Pete for a wonderful opportunity to sit and chat.

(There was also not so great feedback, which is always funny…)
