So It’s kind of the tail end of December but thats not stopping me. I moved both of our cars out of our garage and used the free space in there. It’s challenging but I’m not giving up. I told my friend Catie about my endeavors and now she comes over every Friday and we learn together! It’s a lot of fun, especially when we sort-of-kind-of accomplish something.
I think the things that have inspired me are the move ‘Lords of Dogtown’ and my friends Bety and Pete. Seriously, go watch Lords of Dogtown though. It’s excellent, and you won’t want to wait until the movie is over to get back on your board; it’s awesome. It’s about the Z-Boys and the revolutionizing of skateboarding back in like, the 70’s.
And Bety is a few years older than me. I met her when I was a freshmen in high school, and she was a bit of a hero in my eyes for better or worse. And she was always skating with the guys and stuff like that. And Pete is another one of our friends and a few days ago we got on the topic of longboarding. And I decided this is my ultimate goal.
My plan is:
1)Learn to skateboard
2)Get my Tattoo
3)College in New Mexico
4)Longboard all day, ‘eryday
It’s gonna be pretty sweet and I’m looking forward to all the cuts, blood, and bruises(no broken bones please) that come with it. :]
