Hard times.

I used to skateboard. I skated for three or four years. I was pretty good, too--but I didn't quit by choice. Right now I'm sitting in a cell in the Humboldt County Juvenile Hall. I'm writing this letter on top of the latest KOTR issue, and it is making me think all about how fucked up my life is. I could still be skating, still have a car and so much other shit that it's not even funny. Instead, I'm addicted to drugs and will probably have to sit right here in rehab for the next four- to six-months. It wasn't even probation or juvi that fucked skateboarding up for me--it was the drugs and that's it. I'm not just talking about weed, either, although that made me lose my motivation and I then sorta just stopped skating. So if any of you kids out there are reading this and know where I'm coming from, keep skating. It will bring good things to you, and I sure wish I had some of those right now. Peace.
