Hello out there in the skating world! I have been having the absolute best time skating. I know I sound like a broken record, but I can't help it. Roller skating is too awesome! I have some new skating adventures to report on.
I skated up in Cerritos last week. I went up with Nero so it gave the two of us lots of opportunities to practice our couples skating. We did a fantastic job and neither of us fell the whole night. We did a bunch of backwards couple skating, which was really exciting because I have only done that a couple times before. Once we established the steps, we were golden and our steps were perfectly synchronized. Being up there at that rink, the music and people were as incredible as ever. I saw tons of awesome skating. I was really in the zone the whole night, and my confidence was way up. I skated over in the fast lane a good amount of the time and held my own. Some of my friends that do downtown were also up there and it was super fun to do routines in the middle. We got a lot of kudos.
After doing this blog for more than a year, I actually have some video of me skating. Now calm down, because it's not like a proper skating vid or anything. But Paul and I did make some instructional videos to teach downtown, and this is them. Shooting the video was a good time. It was a gorgeous sunny day. I wish I hadn't been chewing gum, but I can fix that next time around. I was honored that Paul asked me to do the videos with him.

Adult Night at Skate World has been great, as usual. No place like home. Last night the power went out in the middle of the session. What a trip! Absolute darkness. Luckily no one got hurt as it was towards the end of the session. I was in the middle of the rink with Paul doing routines so I did hold on to him for dear life for a split second haha. But of course your eyes adjust after a sec. And everyone in that place had their cell phone to use as a flashlight. Then they told us to leave and the excitement was over. But a memorable night for sure.
I'm going back to Cerritos in a couple weeks *excited* can't wait to do it again.
