“I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday.”—Lester Burnham, American Beauty (via provocatoria)
I want to start doing some outdoor skating so i’m looking into buying a set of outdoor wheels. If you’re local- I plan on going to the skating pavilion in Anacostia Park. I’m not sure exactly what kind of surface it is, so if you’re familiar with it- that helps.
Just looking for some general outdoor wheel recommendations, i’m not looking to go TOO high end on them, so nothing over $80-90. I was thinking about the Atom Pulse wheels.
The World Cup is about to start. This Friday in fact. Starting this Friday, for exactly a month, there is international tournament style soccer happening several times a day, every day.
Imagine if the entire world cared about March Madness and these were professional athletes representing countries instead of schools. The World Cup has the power to shut entire countries down during a single game (and it has), with the country of Ireland famously syncing with the host’s time zone even.
These are big games. Bigger than the Olympics. And they only happen every 4 years. I will be watching them. I will be moving my schedule around for them. And let’s hope you bear with me because I’ll be back again on July 12th.
