24 hour everything

Top 3 worst things about NYC
The winter
High cost of living

People moving to Brooklyn from their native Midwestern "or Southern" home state, acting like they are from there, going to all the hip bars and gluten free vegan shops that never existed until they showed up, while making the rent higher for natives, forcing them to move out, all so you can sit there, and feel cultured..and then, when someone asks you where you are from, you get to feel real special by saying “bed-stuy”….FUCKKKK YOU, i want to fight all of you

Top 3 worst places to travel

As long as you’re traveling, it’s all good, even if the place sucks. Overly religious places in the world, like the bible belt or Turkey, can be a pain because of the people, but even in those places, the countryside and other offerings that are available are absolutely beautiful. every place is good, keep traveling.**

Top 3 Best things about being a blader

Tight-knit community
Blading is fun
If you blade, you never have to go to the gym.

Top 3 worst things about being a blader

Occassionally, you have to check someone for talking shit
The older i get, the softer blading is becoming…thats a bummer
We still haven’t made ourselves a home yet

Top 3 blader do’s

Skate hard…represent for yourself and all the people that have bladed before you

Be proud…in our modern culture, blading isn’t cool…so what? turn on the radio and flip through the stations..we are living in the middle of a time where nothing is cool..so since everything is lame around us, and all those people who are lame thinks that blading is lame, just know that you can’t be judged…be free

Have fun…that’s the point of this whole thing anyway

Top 3 blader do not’s

stop talking shit…stop that, it’s pathetic…don’t hate on people’s skating.. help them, support them, inspire them…..bottom line, you aren’t DL and 15 years ago that guy was skating better than 99% of the people now (bar AB), so don’t act better than anyone…skate harder, everyone

don’t be intimidated….yea, there’s 100 skateboarders in the skatepark and no bladers…so what? be bold. boldness gets chicks.

don’t skate slow….faster is better.

thanks for reading

Billy
