Went snowboarding for the first time. Have to admit that I kind of liked it, aside from the times where I picked up too much speed and bit so hard I might have gotten a mild concussion. Those falls could have been way worse though. Thank God and engineers for helmets.
We went for some extra runs right before everything shut down at night. It’s really peaceful being out on the slopes at that time. I don’t mind being around a lot of people, but there’s something about snowboarding with a whole mountain to yourself that just makes you feel free and alive. With the right gear the cold air’s not so bad either. I felt invigorated.
I didn’t count all the times I fell, which is my passive way of saying I fell a whole hell of a lot. But it was good, I don’t mind falling so much. It’s always good to get outside your comfort zone. It’s not always smooth when you do.
Aside from that there’s still a lot of writing I need to get done. But it’s nice to have a place to record these things. Memories fade as we get older. Maybe someday some distant future me will browse around my old blog posts and smile as the memories come back. They’re fresh now, but an old memory can be fresh in its own way when you haven’t thought about it in a while.
I want that future me to be happy and published. Time to get to work on that.
