It’s getting to be that time again. The daylight is growing shorter, the weather is getting crispier. This is skateboarding in the midwest. Even though I would say that I’m kind of in between the Midwest and the East. But whatever.
I don’t know if it’s fortunate or unfortunate anymore. Fortunately the coming Winter just makes me want to get a second job. I mean, I’m just going to be sitting around for six months anyways. Why not make money, ya know? Unfortunately the coming Winter also means that it’ll be a big mental test as usual for me. I should be happy I’m still able to skate when I can, I know but I’m only 29. Hmmm. 30 will be here very very soon. Wait, what was I talking about? My memory isn’t the same. I’ve lost that thought.
I’m hyped I started this blog even though I haven’t written much in it. I figured out that I can’t just write whenever. I need to be in the mood. Actually going out skating and stopping by a usual chill spot helps me get the creative juices flowing. Tonight I pushed around and through all the alleys here in downtown. It’s so nice that I feel safe that I don’t have to worry about crazy people down here. It’s like a ghost town at times. But I love it. I can cruise right down the middle of Main Street and not have to worry at all. Well, maybe a little. The Farmer’s Market addition is very well lit up, might I add. And sitting in Bicentennial Park or these front porch art pieces are pretty neat as well.
I was writing a review on the Bicentennial Park earlier and I had a nice moment. Heres an excerpt from it.
“I like stopping by and chilling on the benches and just taking in all the sights and sounds of my favorite city. My hometown.”
I like to read those words over and over. I love this place. It’s time for me to skate home, though. Only a number of blocks.
