    More Fun Than I Thought

    When I was younger I would roller skate all the time, even had a birthday party at the roller rink. Now I've rediscovered how much fun it actually is. The roller rink I go to is old-school style, hasn't changed in the slightest in thirty years, with the carpeted walls and all. I...

    Grew Up On Skates

    My dad owned skating rinks on and off when I grew up.  I love roller skating.  I can't do any fancy dance moves, but I feel as comfortable on skates as I do on my own two feet (for the record, I can't really dance on my own 2 feet either).  I always carry my...

    Started When I Was 8 Years Old.

    I would skate until the music stopped and I loved it!  Then when I was 17 I broke my ankle spinning.  OUCH!  Still love it even if though some guy slammed me into the floor once.  Seriously he crashed into me doing about 70mph and it knocked the wind out of me...

    Responsible

    This activity was probably the reason behind the many bruises I aquired as a child. I was covered in them!! I just kept falling over or running into things such as lampposts, walls, hard to miss they are :)

    I Remember...

    I remember when I first learned how to roller skate...mom told me how to stop, but we lived on a hill, so when I tried to stop, I fell over...and ever since then, whenever I skate, I skate into the grass lol

    Been a Bit of Time
