#ILovetheDirtySouth – Paula

There is so much to love about the South that’s it’s hard to narrow it down. My top 3 are the people, the food and the fun! There’s nothing quite like the warmth and friendliness of Southerners. Whether it’s a smile and a wave as you’re walking down the street, or a helping hand when you’re in need, there’s definitely something about the people here that makes it special. And don’t get me started on the food. The Tex-Mex in particular is insane!! Loads of delicious cheesiness, with lettuce and tomato freshness is enough to make anyone feel at home in the South.

But overall, the best thing about the South is the crazy variety of things you can do to have FUN! For me, this is roller skating. I am a part of Houston Roller Derby and I play for the reigning champs, The Valkyries. Roller derby is so much more than just roller skating. It’s comradery, empowerment, athleticism, excitement and just plain fun. As a spectator or skater, there’s always something going on in the derby community. You too can be a part of the action! Our 2016 Championship game is right around the corner and tickets are still available. Come watch my Valkyries keep our title on August 27, 2016, in downtown Houston at Revention Music Center.
