i got on a board for the first time in years this weekend...it was a very old one that belonged to a kid in my parents' neighborhood...i went five feet down the sidewalk, and my two year old nephew clapped and cheered for me...it felt awesome...

I often skate to work. When I do, I have to walk through grass and get my shoes wet. I don't really like stepping on my grip with wet shoes, but I also dislike standing in the parking lot for three minutes scraping my soles against parking bumpers to dry them.

Today I came home from the grocery store and there was a skate session going on in the parking lot of my apartment complex. At least one of the skaters at the session was Sebastian, a kid I've skated with before. I could have grabbed my board and headed out to join Sebastian and friends, but I didn't. There are 2 reasons why:

1. I don't fit in with Sebastian and his friends.
2. All those skaters are far better than me. I can't even ollie!

What's worse is that these skaters are at least 10 years younger than me. It sucks to be intimidated by mere children.

I don't do tricks because I am afraid of getting hurt. Most skaters will tell you that to be good at skateboarding you have to be fearless. Well I'm not. I think risking personal injury on my skateboard is irresponsible. So I just ride around and I feel good because I love to cruise and because I'm safe. Maybe I should buy a longboard.
