Everybody beware!!! Marsha's on wheels again.
Remember I told you about my bike being stolen?
Well, I bought new wheels for myself. And, believe it or not, they cannot steel them... How's that you ask?
Well, I bought myself a pair of skeelers, or in-line skates if you will.
It's quite easy to make speed... Really easy!!! The tough part is actually losing the speed. lol. There's no easy way to brake really.... well, you can always just drop to the pavement, but that's the last way to go if you ask me.

I'm starting to get the hang of it though. I've looked up a couple of informational pages on the net to see whether or not there was something I should know about skating, and to see whether or not there was some sort of technique for emergency stops, you know.

I've come to see that I'm not the only one with this problem. There seem to be quite a few people out there, rookie skaters who have the same issue.

No matter how much you read up on it, or how many theories you manage to find, it's putting them to practice that counts... and that's not always the easiest thing to do. Especially out here in this city where I live in, Leuven. There are A LOT of steep slopes.... and going up is the easy part. LOL

I'll be careful, don't worry. Plus I've got the kneepads and elbow-pads and wrist-pads too. Only thing I didn't really think of buying at that time was the helmet... I guess I wasn't thinking of what could happen ... I mean if all else fails you know ?
First thing that comes to mind if I think about what could happen is... Oops I should have gone for the helmet too. I'll buy it tomorrow.
In the meantime, I better not go down the slopes right? Especially since they come out on the main road and all. A very busy main road I might add...

Yeah, yeah, yeah I'll be careful. I'm not tired of life just yet. lol.
And I'd hate it if my next single would already be released "in memoriam" so to speak. lol.

Anyway, I'm off again. I'm going out skating for a little while and then I'm off to my mom's and my sister's place.
They live in another province. (don't know if i already told you about that) One day I hope to skate there... Won't be within the next couple of weeks though... I won't manage to get there without hurting myself just yet. lol.
