stoked: turned 24 yesterday. work found out today and bought a cake, which was cool. met up with friends afterwards to get steak and beers. ? 
not stoked: I feel like my youth is over, and I haven't done half the stuff I would have liked. ? When I look back, I always seem to have picked the safe route rather than taking a risk and following through with something I'm interested in. ? Feeling like a total pussy and stuck in a bind, because in my mind there isn't any more time to fool around and it's time to grow up. ?
Also the fact that I'm such a mopey, serious cunt at times.
Although I'm 20, I feel the same way. My youth was gone when I got a job second semester of my senior year in high school. Worked full time after school and hardly got the weekends off. The two years I worked there I maybe got 5 weekends off. So my social life went to shit, I missed out on so many skate trips with friends. And going to college, like Hercules Rockefeller said, takes away a lot of time from doing things. If it wasn't for college, some friends and I were planning a big trip around Europe, taking the train, staying at hostels, basically living cheaply for a month or two around Europe.

I also took the easy route too, I took very little chances. I just don't want to be broke and put college on hold, and I don't want to live with my parents forever and work a shit job.

i've felt this before, even this AM while driving to school i quickly thought "wow, what a hassle... working again would be good..." but then i remembered that while i was working i had been miserable about not being in school!!!

i put college completion on hold for about 5 years (i'm 25) and went back this year. It has been the best thing i have done for myself in a while.

While out of school i traveled, partied, wrote, worked, and didn't learn as much as i hoped to- shit was fairly rote. Now that i'm back, i see that i've got more opportunities than i could ever have had while out of school- new ideas, people to write with, greater tax refund (hah), higher sense of worth/accomplishment, now that i'm older i get more grant money too and have greater incentive to learn more/work harder.

granted, i didn't want to be in school when i was 20-24, and i probably wouldn't have gone back this year if my great lady friend didn't force me to enroll in the right classes, but fuck, school is a good thing. If Europe is in your heart, go over summer break.

follow your heart, dudes, school and work can both either wait or be had at any time. Youth, or lack of serious responsibilities, isn't until you want to be a good parent.

happy bday by the way

I feel like I am in the same boat with not doin' shit. I mean I am starting to do more shit now. but BEFORE like the last 4 years really I haven't done fuckin anything. from 16-21 I did a whole mess of shit and really got some fucked up living done. Now I want to do that again. Things get all comfy and yr like aww this is nice but sumthin is missing... So then you are like well fuck lets fill in that hole. When I was a kid I moved out of my parents house for like a year and didn't really ever tell them where I was. This was just after highschool so I was like 18 or something. moved around, lived on couches at my older friends houses. Was taken in by some 40 something year old drag queen who took care of me for about ohhh I dunno 7 or 8 months. That was pretty crazy. Dude fucking loved Wizard of Oz, he was obsessed with Judy Garland and would always play her fucking records all the time. I would basically wake up smoke a bunch of cigarettes wander around town sometimes walking like 4 or 5 hours to get to places to hang out at. come home get really fucking drunk with Rich (that's the drag queen guy). I was pretty much his little project till I got sick of him. He'd take me out get me drunk feed me lots of drugs et al. It was way cool. I wonder what happened to that guy. All this because I didn't want to tell my mom n pops what a little fag I was. I would send them emails and phone calls every now and again to let them know I was alive or whatever. Life can get pretty fucking crazy at times now I'm all mellowed out... WELLL I mean compared to then. I basically lived off thrown away food outside of bagel and pastry shops for a year. In hindsight it was the best time of my life but I sort of half hated it at the time.

On a different note, whatever this is:

One time, I was talking to this girl at a show. Then, I was talking to her and her friend, but I never noticed the friend show up, she was just there. The second girl seemed to like me more, but the first was better looking, so I talked to her more. As I got drunk I somehow kept getting confused about which one I was talking to, which is weird because they didn't look alike at all.

It somehow ended with me walking out of the bathroom, then the second girl just showing up and pushing me back into it (I have no idea why), and saying words that didn't seem like English, but probably were. For some reason, I asked if her friend (the better looking one) was mad at me. She said no.

That's all I remember from that whole night though.

I'm on a 4 hour break and I'm debating if I should :
go outside and skate
read for school
'bate and shower
nap

either way, I win...but it is difficult to come to decision

I am stoked, but not stoked on Hot Pockets
It's impossible to heat them up to an even temperature all the way through so you have to make the outer end boiling hot in order to get the center lukewarm. So I heat up the Hot Pocket and proceed to eat it without letting ti cool down because that could take several minutes of my precious time. So I am gingerly taking bites of the too hot portion of the Hot Pocket and not really savoring its tangy pepperoni pizza innards. The Hot Pocket finally reaches optimum temperature in about the last two bites. I get those last two bites of Hot Pocket perfection and then it's gone forever. That always disappoints me.

If  it was rape it was enjoyable rape, but she was making all the moves. She like stripped me naked and started Stepbrothers style humping me. But then she called me this morning and asked me what happened last night. She basically was a real flirtatious zombie

edit: I guess that's what happens when you let a girl who weighs about 100 pounds eat 2 ladders and drink a couple 160z

Yes, im doing that everytime I skate from now on.  The sad thing is it took me 1 1/2 hours to get to the park I was skating when I tore it.  I only got to skate for 5 minutes before it happened.

Skated most of the day from morning until it got dark cruised through the city centre
Bombed down three hills on the way home,  one of them for the first and it was steep and long and scary as shit.

but, pushing down the street saw a nice looking curb cut and BAM! fucking evil cramp in my right leg, front foot was on the board my right leg was stiff as a plank.  Splits. Pain.  Carried on skating home doing shitty ollies and landing with perfectly straight legs and lots of pain.

Today was a good day.

Two months from today I will be on a two week vacation from Afghanistan.  I am going to get to see my wife for two weeks and skate in perfect weather in Kansas City and St. Louis.

It will have been 7 months since I touched a board.  I am going to suck so fucking bad.

you'll be fine, I went 18 months and it all came back in a few days.



But i'm stoked I still have all my teeth after falling on my face today. Two fat lips and a goose egg on my forehead aren't too stoke-worthy. Not to mention 5 hours later I still have bloody boogers. But I like those, they're kind of fun.

went to the ortho doc today. foot is healing nicely, said the doc. out of work for two more months, continuing to receive $272.50/wk. Not bad while i'm in school, not bad at all. It's getting nice outside too.

The really bummer is that i was planning on heading to Eureka from May-July but since workers comp is covering this injury, i've got to stick around until i'm done with the ortho and physical therapy. Can't skate until June.

Whoa!?  What happened there?!

At the local park there is a hubba next to an I beam and I tried to ollie over the top of the hubba past the beam to back 5050, my foot hit the beam and I slammed on the hubba and fell off the end. the first thing that hit the ground was my face. I think my nose is broken. Its not crooked, its very swollen and sore, not to mention I've had two additional nosebleeds today. The swelling in my lips went down a bit, but I do have a cut on them that looks like Herpies.

You and I are cool now, but this might be karma for this post:
left the skatepark in an ambulance yesterday.

Hope your okay though. You posted that in the things your stoked on thread.

I ate shit skating today.  It's a nice feeling every so often but it also hurt like shit (basically fell off a ledge onto my back and did a backwards somersault).  I think I'm more stoked because it makes me feel a lil gnarly  ;D
