i strongly dislike scooters

This weekend kinda sucked. I also really don’t like scooters.

On saturday I was having a pretty good day. I woke up and had a nice breakfast, walked my dog and hung out for a while. The weather was nice and it was also Earth Day. So overall a great morning.

I packed up my filming stuff and got ready to go to the skatepark to film some videos. Last year I made a skate video on Earth day with all my friends. It’s on youtube so you can go check it out if you want. Comment below if you liked it.

Anyways I get a ride to the skatepark and meet up with my friends Kai and Ben. I saw a poster outside the skatepark. I was curious on what it was so I walked over and read it and saw that there was going to be a signing and demo next week on Tuesday. I looked at who was going to the signing, and saw that it was mostly all of my favorite skaters. Eric Koston, Andrew Reynolds, AVE, Guy Mariano, etc. Those guys are at the top of skateboarding and are technically legends in the skateboarding community. I can’t believe they are coming to Santa Barbara.

Anyways that made my day better, and I started skating with my friends. I landed a new trick called a Varial Flip Sex Change which took a couple tries but it was cool. It was pretty hot so we sat in the shade and enjoyed our Saturday afternoon.

So far I’m having a great day. But this is when everything goes down hill.

I was just riding my skateboard around when out of nowhere, a scooter kid flies out of the bowl and spins his scooter around over his head. And then he smashed my shoulder with his scooter. I turned around and was like Wata heck but he didn’t seem to care much.

I was pretty annoyed but also my shoulder was hurting pretty bad. Scooters are so annoying. They are always cutting skaters off and cause chaos in the skateparks.

Anyways, I went home and saw that my shoulder was pretty swollen and I couldn’t fully rotate it anymore. I put on an arm sling to make it feel better and sat on the couch and watched some tv. I was pretty angry and annoyed that I got injured from something that was not my fault.

This was pretty much the end of my weekend and I just spent the rest drawing and icing my shoulder. 

Ugh

Happy Earth Day!

and if you scooter, you should definitely quit

mellow weekend

Friday..

I went to school and then went to a little bit of practice then went home. I hung out for a while then went to do community service. After community service, I biked home then made  a smoothie and watched some Netflix. I haven’t been watching Dexter as much as I used to and now I am watching a show called Steven Universe because my friend Carter has been begging me to watch it for a few months.

This was pretty much my day and I didn’t do much for the rest.

Saturday..

Today I am going to skate. I texted my friend Christian and made plans to skate later in the day.

I got out of bed and made some breakfast. I cooked some potato’s, eggs, a bagel and a smoothie. In this smoothie, I put in strawberries, acai, banana, pineapple, mango, kale, spinach, honey, yogurt, orange juice, almond milk, chia seeds and some lemon juice. A pretty big breakfast.

I went into my backyard and decided to sell a surfboard that I used to ride when I was in like 6th grade. I took some pictures then posted it on craigslist.

It’s a Channel Islands Fred Rubble and is 5’6″.

Comment below if you are interested in buying.

I then went inside and saw that the paper that I ordered has been delivered.

Pretty cool stuff.

I hung out in my living room and read some books.

Photo/Stoner

This was one of the books that I read. It was a photo book with pictures from this photographer named Stoner Ron.  He is a photographer from the 70s and shoots many surf photos. This book was pretty cool.

I had some lunch with my dad and then went to the skatepark to meet up with Christian.

The moment I got there, I regretted going because it was so windy. Christian was still skating but I just decided to take some pictures and hangout.

I got picked up around 5 and went home. I watched some more Stevens Universe then went to bed.

Pretty cool day.

Sunday..

I guess I’ll skate again today. I went to the skatepark and met up with my friends Will and Christian. Christian left when I got there to get some lunch with his 7th grade scooter friends. Will and I kept skating but soon got exhausted from the heat and had to sit down for a bit.

We skated over to Rusty’s to get some lunch with Merrick and Eric.

I got picked up after then went home. Then my dad and I went to Trader Joe’s to do some grocery shopping. We got some meat and some buns to make a burger later.

We went home and set up the barbecue and started cooking.

We ate then went to bed.

This weekend was pretty mellow, comment below what you did.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spring Break Part 2

Thursday..

I woke up and made a smoothie. We didn’t have any more orange juice so I squeezed some fresh ones. Fresh squeezed orange juice is a lot sweeter in my opinion. I also put in some strawberries, banana, pinneaple, yogurt, honey, kale and some spinach.

oranges

I drank the smoothie, did some drivers ed and wacthed some Netflix. I started a new show called Dexter, it’s pretty good. I’m already on season 3 but season 3 is kinda boring. Comment below if you like Dexter, don’t spoil anything though.

Charlie texed me to skate so we met up at the skatepark. We filmed a couple tricks. It was way too hot to skate so I decided to go home. I did some more drivers ed and watched some more of Dexter then went to bed.

Friday..

Another skate day. I woke up, made another smoothie and did a little more of drivers ed.

I made a sandwhich with avocados, turkey, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese. It was pretty good.

I went to the skatepark around 1 and met up with my friends Colin and Tanner.

I tried a trick for about an hour but never landed it. Around 6, Colin and I left the skatepark and biked over to Tanner’s house. My bike broke half way there so I had to walk my bike.

We had some pasta at Tanner’s and watched Superbad. I’ve seen this movie many times but it never gets old.

We went to some party around 9 and got home around 11.

We were all exhausted and we hung out in Tanner’s room and played some video games. We went to bed.

Saturday..

We woke up around 9. I got picked up around 9:30 and walked the dog with my dad.

We then went to Hendry’s beach to wash our dog. It’s a pretty good deal because you get 10 minutes to wash and they have all kinds of shampoo and stuff. Comment below if you’ve ever washed you dog there.

I was pretty tired so I didn’t make any other plans and just went home instead. I showered and stuff and got into my pj’s and did some more drivers ed. Drivers ed is so boring.

I watched some more of Dexter and Louie.

Jorge texted me around 5 and asked if I wanted to skate tomorrow. I said sure and went to bed.

Pretty normal day.

Sunday..

I slept in today.

I went to the skatepark. Jorge ended up not coming but I met up with some other friends.

I skated mostly all day and did some filming.

Did some drawings later that day..

Monday..

Last day of spring break 😦

I went to swim practice. It was my first time swimming in like 2 weeks and it was terrible.

I went home and just watched some netflix and enjoyed the last bit of spring break with my dog.

Spring break is pretty good, except I’ve been pretty sick the whole time

Saturday..

First day of spring break.

Today I woke around 6:30 and made some breakfast and walked the dog. Then I got dropped off at the beach to play some beach volley ball with Charlie, Christian and some other friends.

I’ve never really played volleyball before so it was a little nerve racking but everyone was friendly so everything was cool. I kinda got the hang of it after a while and played a couple matches.

It was really hot and I got sunburnt pretty bad.

volleyball

After volleyball Chase, Charlie, Christian, Jack and I all went to the Habit and got some food. We were all pretty tired.

Jack got picked up and the rest of us drove over to the skatepark. The skatepark got boring really quick so we all decided to just walk around on the beach.

Charlie and Chase decided to go to Sam’s house but I was pretty tired so I decided to take the bus home.

Sunday..

I am sore.

I went to the skatepark. For some reason I skate really well when I’m sore. I don’t know why.

I met up with my friends Tiger and Christian.

Tiger is really good at transition skating. He is also really nice.

We tried airing over this gap called the channel gap witch is a gap that goes from the bowl to the quarter pipe. But it is hard because we have to clear a 5 ft gap.

We tried for about 30 minutes but never landed it.

I got picked up around 5:00 by my dad and went home.

Monday..

I don’t feel like skating today.

My dad and I went to go walk our dog. We took our dog the a park near by and hung out there for a while.

We spent about an hour there then walked back home. Then went to In n Out to get some lunch. I was hungrier than usual so I got a double double.

After that we went to Carp to go pick up some of our stuff from our family friend’s house. They have an extra storage area so we keep some of our stuff in there.

We found some old records and some cool vintage clothes.

some of the records

Overall a pretty good day.

Tuesday-Thursday

Mostly skateboarding and hanging out with some friends.

Did some drawings, heres one.

just another drawing

My spring break is not too exciting but it is very relaxing.

Comment below what you guys are doing for spring break.

Feels like Summer

Friday..

Today I went to school like usual then had swim practice after. Today’s swim practice was pretty easy and fun. After practice, I got picked up and went home. I made a sandwhich and sat down for a while.

About 30 minutes later, I went to do some community service. For community service, I help teach Japanese at a church.

After community service, I went home and hung out in my backyard with my dog.

kai

Later that night we had curry. Comment below if you like curry.

Overall it was a pretty mellow day.

Saturday..

I woke up feeling good today. I wasn’t tired nor sleepy and I got up quickly. It was warm and sunny outside and felt kinda like summer.

I made a smoothie with strawberries, bananas, orange juice, almond milk, honey, pinneaples, spinach and kale. I drank that and watched some adventure time and listened to music.

I got a ride to the skatepark around 12pm and met up with my friends, Kai, Ben, Oli, Tanner and Owen. It was kind of a crappy skate day because I haven’t skated for a week. I haven’t been skating as much as I used to in 9th grade because I joined club waterpolo and swim team.

We skated for a while and also played a group game of s.k.a.t.e. For those of you who do not know what s.k.a.t.e is, it is kind of like the game P.I.G in basketball where one person sets a trick and the rest of the people have to do the same thing or they get a letter. And first one to spell out s.k.a.t.e loses. Kai and I were the judges, but soon we all got too hot so we decided to jump in the ocean. The ocean was really nice and it remembered me of summer when I would spend all day at the skatepark then jump in the ocean when I got hot.

ben and owen

After the beach we walked back to the skatepark but we were all too tired to skate so we just sat out side the skatepark and hung out. I decided that I was too tired to do anything so I hopped on the bus and went home.

I had some pasta and watched View from a Blue Moon.

It’s a really good video if you guys haven’t see it yet.

Sunday..

I woke up to a call from Jorge around 8.

He asked me to hangout so I met up with him at the skatepark.

But he left 5 minutes after I got to the skatepark.

Whatever..¯\_(ツ)_/¯

When I got home my dad gave me a record he found at the flea market.
