Yesterday, I shot some video of me skating around at the beach. I clipped it up into a sort of skating “progress” video. Can’t believe it’s been 9 months of rolling around on these babies already. My skates have definitely been around the block a few times; chewed up by the road just like I have. They have done me very, very well though. The thought of buying a new pair soon is almost bittersweet; hanging up my first pair of skates which I’ve grown to love so much.
Looking back to 9 months ago when I ordered them from the store, I never would have guessed how much I would grow to love skating. Here I am now, skating almost every single day. I can’t wait to get to know my next pair of skates, I hope they like me. I don’t even know what kind I want yet anyway, it’s like choosing a puppy - they are all wonderful, but some are just more suited to the individual.
I started skating when things in my life were pretty confusing and skating was my escape. Just me, my music, and the wheels on the pavement.. and the occasional glow wristlet or two. Find what makes you tick, and do it.
