Don't mean to revive an old thread but what I'm currently feeling applies in a sense...more of hitting a frustration and what feels like a "disability" to learn tricks these days.
I did somewhat slack off the past couple months as I felt like I somewhat was beginning to lose an interest in throwing for a couple reasons - lack of progress, drama among a group/virtual club I was with (don't want to go into details but it was demotivating after being back stabbed), getting wrapped up in my new job (which is a good thing), and then getting sick. Just after the holidays I picked back up and had come up with a couple tricks at the start of the new year. You may have noticed you hadn't even seen me around the forums much for a while.
Fast forward to now - I've moved on with things with that community, and have gotten back into the swing of things with throwing as far as interest goes routinely throwing on my 2 15-minute breaks in the middle of an empty amusement park (it's the off-season)
One trick that's sparked my interest and has also been driving me up the wall lately (for the past 2 months and not even a 3rd of the way through) is Even Nagao's Porygon. I've taken breaks on it and tried to come back, have had others try and show me and still keep repeating the same mistakes which is honestly a tad depressing.
Fast forward, let's try to learn something simple like Takeshi Triangle. I lost track of how many times I had to keep replaying the video only to once again repeat the same mistake. I finally just decided to "forget it" and come here to vent. Feels like I'm suffering from what they call "CRS" or "Cant remember...stuff (to say it politely)"
Times like these when you begin to feel like you've hit a plateau progress-wise and you find yourself either getting into a mount that you have no clue what to do with it other than do what looks like a big mess with no actual thought or you get into the mount only to find yourself getting out of it instead of making use of what you got into.
