the ice skating experience

Born and raised in a tropical country means I know only the sun and rain. So when my friend told me that we'll go skating, I thought she meant roller blading. Only then did I realize that she meant ice skating. I was excited to finally wear those blades but the fear of falling has gotten to my head more than actually enjoying the whole thing.

I was just glad that I can stand on ice with those blades but actually moving in the ice rink got me so shaky that I eventually fell a lot. I learned all the basics from her though so I was glad she was there. Kids circling around me was kind of intimidating but I didn't care anymore, I just want to skate! haha Everyone else had to endure my swearing (in my native tongue) and Ola found it funny the whole time. Well, if I listened to myself I would be in hysterics as well.  I had to always think to bend forward, knees together, lift leg, move gracefully and not to panic.

And when I can finally skate, I panic. Typical me.
