So Saturday we went to a roller rink that I forgot existed and is really easy to get to from my house. Even with the uncomfortable and old rental skates I used, I was able to get the hang of it and now I'm thinking about roller skating constantly, I'm hooked on it. Even just as a hobby alone, skating made something click in my head where, "oh I love doing this". I've always wanted a hobby that involved moving around (main hobby being crafting/blogging, duh) and this is it. I've tried things like yoga, but that kind of stuff doesn't do it for me. I TRIED. I like fast paced, high energy stuff (ADD, I actually legit have it). I need something that can take my mind off things and gets those endorphins going. And I hate working out (HATE IT!!). So basically roller skating is my calling, or something. I've been spending a lot of time looking up outdoor roller rinks my be for when it get warm, and looking up indoor ones, too, and seeing if The Gotham Girls have any sort of training classes to offer (they do, but I was literally a day late to sign up). Although I want to wait a while till I actually try out for a derby league, I'm so pumped to get the ball rolling on this finally and start practicing. I DO have a name picked out for when that day comes. It's so good. I'm not telling anyone, haha.
I'm just so excited for this new thing to make me happy in my life and I'm also really super lucky to have friends in my life who share this interest with me that I can learn with and so I don't have to practice alone all the time. If it wasn't for that I probably wouldn't have made the leap to this do in the first place.
Here's to new fun things, yay!
