Okay so I have a 7-hour break this Friday. Should I go to the rink or not….. It’s an hour and a half away from my uni. :(( I HATE MY SCHEDULE THIS SEM I SWEAR. My last sem’s sched was so perfect for skating. And now I have 7 to 5:30 classses. And the rink now closes at 8 instead of 10. WHY.
"Since I’m no longer an active athlete, I don’t feel the rigors of training anymore. Physically and mentally I feel stable. Since I don’t have a job at the moment (lol), I don’t feel stressed or pressured. When I was a competitive skater, I would spend hours debating while shopping - putting down clothes I liked because I just thought I would never wear them. Now, when I see pretty clothes I think “I’ll wear it someday” and buy what I like. Currently, I’ve been really into watching romantic comedy movies. I haven’t properly sat down to really test my alcohol tolerance levels. What I know for a fact though is that I don’t get the “asian glow”! I’ve only tried beer but my face doesn’t turn red. I don’t think I’ve really been introduced to real alcohol yet so I guess I’m not positively sure."
