Had a bright spot in a dark dark moment of my life today.

Did some shuttle runs today. During that time I was able to sort out what was going through my mind, how I felt about what was going on, just rewent through life in itself. May I say I feel much better about stuff right now, and have managed to pull my self away from the dark clouds. I have to say, that a good ride may be the best medicine for a bad time. To just escape and thrash the bike, throw tricks out of feeling like you have nothing to lose. Pin stuff you have never thought of pinning before. Just tweaking the bike every chance you get. Put all those together it gives a great time and puts you on a major high. All is right with me again finally, I just needed to escape from society for awhile.

I'm glad your having fun because I have another bio test tomorrow and I need to memorize all Brutus's lines for Act 4 by next monday(Julius Caesar). And yes, I went for a ride today.


I must say, it made me feel a bit better. Glad you got your life in order. For now atleast

I have troubles like that to. Except I go for a ride. Get home and am really tired so I just blow off the homework. Maybe thats why I suck at school.

That's cool, biking is such an awesome release of... something. It's hard to put your finger on it but it definately helps me out on rough days as well. I don't hit the jumps. rather just pound through long trails and corners like I can't seem to do when I'm happy or with friends.

On a side note, I wait 'til night time to do my homework

I know how you feel. When I get my rear shock back, im gunna ride my bike for all its worth.

Mountain biking really is a release on life. When you are stressed or have problems, just go for a ride and you don't have to think of any of it when you're on the trail.

Peace out!
