Lately: Longview

Haven't been doing much over the weekend after hurting my shoulder. Watching TV, sleeping in, amongst other things. I've done a bit of exercise to get my shoulder tightened up a bit, and in turn learned a bit about skipping rope. I'm pretty stoked on the skip rope, since it's intense as you make it, not to mention the fact that you never really stress your calves when skiing. In a couple days if skiing feels right I'd like to get a couple days in at bounce.

Here are some rap songs for your pleasure. I'll be back skiing park tomorrow and these are gonna be the main source of inspiration.

I've been in the ski patrols toboggan before. At first it was a thrill, now it's a claustrophobic nuisance, being locked in a potential projectile and slowly dragged down steep slopes. You are so immobilized that people could mistake you for a dead body. Yesterday I hurt myself in an odd accident, tumbling after being hit by a stray ski. I never consciously think about the thrill of skiing when I'm on the mountain. I just do things because they feel good. But when something  like this happens I begin to identify with the group of skiers that are about the thrill because I see the consequential side of this sport and I feel like I should embrace it.

I need to find something to do to pass the time. I'm really good at spending an entire afternoon getting a coffee, and I still thinking about grabbing a new but old video game system. A few couple essay ideas have come to me and I'm put those down on here when the times right.
