May 10, 2005

My pro skateboarding dreams are one step closer to reality. Well, kind of. I skated in my first competition on the weekend and I did okay. I didn't even make the finals, but I had some pretty sweet runs. In my first session of the street comp, I landed two kickflips and a heelflip, and didn't have any major spills. I couldn't land any of my railslides... but no big deal. I met a bunch of new skateboarders there and we spent the rest of the day skating, so I got a bunch of new footage to use for my video.

There were loads of really hot girls there as well, so it was a sweet day all around - better than hangin' out at home listening to my mom nag me about doing homework. My skating is totally getting better so I'm feeling pretty good about eventually getting sponsored. Who knows? Maybe some guy who saw me at the competition will call me tomorrow.

Oh yeah, and while I was at the skate competition, I got a chance to talk to Tosh Townsend, who's a pro skater with Element and Emerica. He was there to do a demo with some other pros. He said he dropped out of school as soon as he turned pro, and now he sleeps in every morning, then spends the rest of the day surfing, skating or playing video games. Nice life. Sounds better than getting a summer job cutting grass or serving ice cream at the mall. You can check out the interview I had with Tosh by clicking here.

Later,
Simon

    my father would usaully yell at me for making his food wrong and sometimes if im ten minutes late my mom would say something like this "you need to grow up and take cares of your chours and stop going on my phone" then she go off topic like "you need more friends and go out doors and". Then my dad is all like "are you sleepy bc you eat to much junk food (even thou i barely even eat a full blown meal)". Oh and my brother, he keeps saying how ugly i am and he brings his girlfriend (which is one year younger than him" into my room like can i be alone. What i am saying is family do not like the youngest child.

    Tell the manager. According to the rules, if you want to get hacks (nice messages on your profile by someone) Then you have to ask them to do it through comments. Otherwise these things happen.
