Now that the season for outdoor ice skating has come to an end, I transition to indoor ice skating (when money allows) until roller skating in May, for the summer.
Despite the incident I had two years ago where a teenage boy harassed me, I decided to keep going back in 2018 and now this year. I didn’t see him in 2018 and everyone I met through skating have been kind to me.
Well, last night was no different! The photo below is from April 2018, but I ran into this kind young lady last night and she remembered me! She was happy to see me because she hasn’t seen me in a year. She gave me a big hug and said I’m doing great with ice skating! ❤⛸
There are days where I feel like I’m not a great ice skater, but her compliment cheered me up. I said, “Thank you. I still have that photo from last year.” She smiled back and said, “so do I!” I know she’s only a young teenager, but I try to be kind to everyone regardless of their stage in life. Besides, I remember when I was her age, I loved being around adults and was always happy when one of the adults stopped doing what they were doing and paid attention to me. I like to return the favour now that I’m an adult. I hope that doesn’t sound creepy.
Dylan, we chatted for half of the session, he had to leave at 8:30. He was pretty friendly and seemed kind. He was interesting to chat with and we exchanged Instragram usernames to keep in touch. I rather keep in touch that way.
I skated without using the wall as much! I did well and I am proud of myself. I flew and glided, I had so much fun.
