Skate, Don't Hate
I have been feeling a little stagnant lately. Need to mix it up a bit. I still love doing all my regular stuff like downtown and all, I just want to go to the next level. I am back watching my how to videos again. Lately I have been trying to learn to spin. The only spin I know how to do is a downtown spin, which doesn't even really count as a spin. You seem some skaters doing some amazing spins, 10 times around. I am just trying to do one spin and stop. Then I will go on from there. I am working on the heel toe spin at the moment. I am also trying to skate more on my front wheels. All these things are challenging so it's much easier to fall back into my regular movements. Have to keep pushing for constant improvement.
My birthday is coming up in a couple weeks. Man I just keep getting older. But with my skating, I honestly feel younger than I have in years. So happy birthday to me, bitches!!
For my birthday, I am going to Vegas. Yeah baby! So excited. I am going to skate at Crystal Palace on July 3 for their Adult Night, hopefully they will have a 4th of July special skate. I am looking forward to luxuriating at the hotel, lounging in the pool, getting drunk on cheap drinks, kicking ass on the slots, and not sleeping. That's the plan!
