Simon's Blog - March 29, 2005

March 29, 2005

My quest to become a sponsored skateboarder has hit a few painful roads lately. I was attempting a rail slide at the skatepark on the weekend and bailed big time.

I landed on the rail and started my slide when my board somehow kicked out from under me. I lost my footing and landed hard on my butt. My butt now has a massive bruise and it hurts to sit down, like I've got hemroids or something. But I'll still keep skating - no pain, no gain.

Ben was with me at the park and managed to get my spill on tape. He forgot to press record when I landed a kickflip last week, but was in perfect position to record my wipeout. What a chump. We watched it later back at my place and it looks pretty gnarly - especially in slo-mo. Not exactly the kind of material I was hoping to put in my "sponsor me" video. But that's okay, I'll nail a rail slide soon enough.

Sindy is coming out to visit it me next week for spring break, so I wanna have something really cool to show her on video by then. She'll get a good laugh at my wipeouts but I also want to be able to show her that I can actually land some tricks as well. Whenever we chat online these days, she's always whining about breaking up with her boyfriend, so hopefully she'll be a little more mellow by the time she gets here. The last thing I wanna do while Sindy's here is listen to her "boyfriend troubles" for a week...

Anyway, I gotta fly. Have you ever had a nasty wipeout while skateboarding? If you have,

Later,
Simon

    Will Simon Get Sponsored?

    • Yeah - he's rad. He'll get sponsored for sure.
    • Maybe - if he keeps skating every day.
    • No way - he's dreaming.

     I am your friend and I know you from a long time , Nisha. You are a nice girl. Just remember​ one thing that there is beauty in imperfection​.  Don't feel afraid to think or express anything you feel just because you think it's dumb . It may be dumb for some but it also may be cool for some. We all are different in our own way and that's what makes us feel unique. Just be yourself even if you think it's dumb because it will never make you regret and always get you the right ones in your life :):):):):)

    I don't know where else to post this, but note that this isn't related to my friends. In a small way it is but it isn't.. anyway, my problem is I've read a lot and observed people around me. I've realised the kind of mistakes they make and have learnt how to avoid some of them. I've learnt from my childhood stupidity and sillyness too, and from the past two years. But I did something that many others must have done. Problem is I feel dumb now. Not because I think myself to be superior to others but because, it's simple for them to get over it but for me it's hard. I don't want to mention what I did but I had really strong feelings and one slight word can ruin my mood in that case. I've realised my problem is that I want to be perfect and to not make mistakes. But I know that mistakes help us learn. And I just need to relax but don't know how to. I want to, unlike people who give up and submit to the darkness - no offsense. But I really, really want to. It's been tearing me apart. Please, if anyone can help me, please please help.
