my ex who still hasn't moved out just got back from a month long holiday with her new dude and I don't give a shit anymore, I'm stoked I'm over her already, I feel very free - and tempted to start dating a new girl I've been seeing which funnily enough, freaks the ex out when she's the one who left me for another dude in the first place. I'm relieved that toxic relationship is over and, I have to say, a bit amused that my freedom gets to piss my ex off after all the shit she's put me through. can't wait for her to move out now. I've also been trying to catch up on lack of sleep (two hours per night for the past two months wasn't cutting it) and eating proper food and today I actually feel juiced to skate for the first time in a while; recently I had been trying to skate every day but really was too depressed or tired to feel the vibe, my body refused to work and now it actually feels great again! I feel like this is the end of a massive slump right here, I feel like taking good care of myself now and I can't wait to go skate!

landed a no comply back 3 yesterday full pop no revert bs, kinda makes me think i could do a back 3 even though theyre infinitely harder.

they're actually very similar (if you can get those full b/s 360 step hops down good), the motion of your shoulders actually has to be the exact same on both tricks. doing a lot of the step hop ones actually helped me relearn backside 360 ollies really consistently a few years back. so practice those, then once you get a good hang of the rotation just practice doing the same thing sucking your front leg up like you would for an impossible or pressure flip rather than sliding your foot off the board and onto the floor. compared to regular stance, full frontside 360 ollies on flat, backside ones aren't too hard although they may be a bitch to figure out at first, but you'll be stoked to get them eventually.

the_unknown_soldier: sounds like one step closer to self realization and happiness, congrats man.

yeah i got em down fairly well, still a little wobbly on the landing since i seem to be landing back foot first more often than not. ive tried back 3s before and they tend to flop away from me but with being able to do the no comply ones i figure its just trying to figure out keeping the board with you without the footplant. will give em a shot next skate.

the big toe on your back foot is what should be keeping the board in control under you on that trick, with or without the step hop. it's the only part of your body that needs to be attached to the board the whole time. that's why ollie impossibles help so much with it. focus on that big toe.

i did get a few back 3 no complies that felt like only the big toe was on the board the whole time while spinning so i definitely get what you mean, cheers. I feel like it's gonna be one of those tricks thats a bitch to figure out, then once you figure it out you think you've got it down and understand it but you really dont lol.

  coffee shop girl is telling me now she wants to hang out. We've been laughing together on her breaks.  She is classically beautiful, and 'too  young' for anybody who wants to kook me about that.  I just want to laugh and have fun in relationships now.  I can't fight and argue anymore.  Thats the biggest attribute with the old dude/young chick -its like a huge break for both the guy and the girl.  She dosen't have to deal with a guy her age whos caught up in everthing to do with being that age.  Its way more relaxing for her.  Just hang out with the old chill guy whos not insecure constantly about the relationship.  Alot of girls are hurting and have been fucked around by guys so they want a break.  I like the younger girl friends cause it's not constant arguing.  I honestly (edit -with all my heart) would way rather a real relationship with someone my own age, -thats the only time I've been in love is with women my own age but its too 'rocky' evertime and I threw in the fuckin towel.

for the record early 40s and I've got no opinion about the garage rock enthusiast except that he's prolly a real barrel of monkeys.   (but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't love shit for brains but you never know.)

My mistake, I thought your post was from Justice and I think he's right around 20.

Total coincidence that it happened to play of that pedophile thread. I'm not that clever.

my new job as a grill cook is going well, it's a smaller place and the managers are pretty cool. it's tough work though but it's a lot better than working at applebees. also, i got my car running and it's awesome to be driving and do more of what i want and i'm skating again but it still feels weird to do kickflips, they hurt to do but everything else is fine, i'm pretty content lately.

Remembered my password to my account again. Been a couple of years for sure - I got logged out at uni at some point, because they blocked SLAP. Never managed to log on again.

Well, pretty stoked on that. And that i finished my masters at uni. And had a kid.

I have an agency that essentially shops me around and I make stuff for displays at hotels and some like sports arenas and stuff like that. It's all digital display stuff, not paintings in rooms or any of that.
