When it comes to skateboarding I love the sport. It gives me the freedom and space I need to roll around in a concrete jungle. Its always a pleasure to meet other skaters and build connections. One thing that I always questions is when the younger kids. Theres a little boy across the street from me who just got a skateboard for Christmas. As he rolled back and forth on his front porch I wondered, “How good will he get? Will he turn pro?” I always ask that becasue during my journey on a skateboard I have watched people who could barely ride a board, shred the bowls better than me at the skatepark.
Its always a fascinating thought when it crosses my mind. I get engulfed in the future and what it has in store for skaters all around. I wonder if other people think the same thing too?
Guess what guys? I’ve finally paid off my mac! (Hoorayy!) Now to get down to business.
Its July 12th and its safe to say that the summer is almost over. I’ve already pictured it. July will fly by like all the other months and before we know school will be back in session and trying to type up a paper will be the hardest thing to do since the invention of mechanical pencils.
But last night I was rolling the the city with my homie Brandon and I began to think to myself. “What have I done all this summer?” The question was starting to make me think that I wasted my entire summer and that I didn’t get enough skating in. As we rode around, specifically out on Bardstown rd, I realized that I really didn’t waste my summer at all. Its was pretty eventful. I spent a lot of time with the homies, wrote a lot of cool songs, skated a lot on the days it didn’t rain, learned switch tricks, and even made some awesome new friends.
The ideal summer that I had in mind before listing all of that was to just skate in Newburg and read books. Well guess what? I even did that too. I remember the summer prior to this one it was one of those “getting back to your roots” type ordeal. I had just got out of my first relationship, so actually getting to do what I want was something new and fascinating to me. I discovered my inner self and who I really was as I skated and listened to music. Fast forward to now I’ve done a lot more soul searching and a lot more tree blowing and have enjoyed it. I haven’t just had fun but have learned a lot.
Oh and remember my early life crisis? Well last night I made another realization that in just 3 and 1/2 months I’ll be 22. A scary number in my eyes but its what has the ball rolling and encouraging me to do more with my life and to live out all of my dreams. Just wait, you’ll be hearing from me a whole lot more.
