Me skating

When I was going through what I did, (see Child Abuse Story From Spades) I would always see these three boys outside skateboarding. It made me realize by abuse wasn't normal, and that I wanted out. I promised myself that I would learn to skate. The day after I got to my foster home, I bought a skateboard and I've been on it ever since. I love the feeling of flying it gives me.
