I walked into my third week of this project feeling really confident. I had played around with the tricks i was learning more and more, and even managed to fool some kids at a school I worked at this week.
While watching some magic tricks on youtube, I came across a move not designed to fool, simply to impress. The One handed shuffle. And so I began to practice. Again using a video by content creator 52Kards I began to practice, and practice, and practice some more. It became quickly apparent that this trick is for the more advanced learners, as i have picked up the equivalent of hundreds of cards as I try to learn. I am getting closer but am still miles away.
I am not disheartened, (the look on my face at the end of th GIF isn’t helping my case), but rather looking forward to the day that I can actually do this trick. I feel it will segway tricks together nicely, as well as give me a impression based advantage at card nights.
If I do ever compile a repertoire of magic tricks, I feel like this moment will serve as a landmark of my journey.
Well that wraps this one up, off to pick up more cards…
