Jessica's Ice Skating Saga

I had fun ice skating last night. I ventured from the walls, though I was still careful. The guy from a few weeks ago that I gave my phone to for pictures (and took pictures of himself) saw me and called me mom. He said, "hi, mom! How are you?" And snapped this conversation. It was bizarre, especially when he started blowing me kisses. It made me feel weird because he was 13 or 14. His friends were laughing and it brought back bad feelings from when I was the butt of jokes in school.

However, toward the end, he grabbed my hand and guided me out into the center. He was determined to get me away from the wall. I did it and I did it well. That accident I had in February shook me up. When he let go, I stayed away from the walls until the end. Maybe I wasn't the butt of the joke, but kids having fun. Maybe it's weird too, but I allow anyone of any age to help and it seemed like a nice gesture of kindness.

Also, I helped a 7-year-old with her skates. After I tied her laces, she stayed by my side to see how I skate. I told her she was doing well and to keep practicing. I guess I've come a long way myself.
It was a fun evening.


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I love that rap video and the deep, thumping bass. I never heard that one before and appreciate you posting it.

    You seem to have mixed feelings about your latest experience at the skating rink. I would suggest this. Just keep coming from kindness and generosity. Occasionally you will encounter immature people who don't appreciate it or reciprocate, but that's their problem, not yours. Don't let it bother you. You helped that little girl and I'm sure it made her day.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend, dear friend JM!

    1. Hi Shady!

      I love Post Malone. I have a joke with myself that people born on July 4 are great and destined for big things. His birthday is July 4, 1995 - I'm exactly 6 years older than him. :) But, I do enjoy his music and last month I bought the cassette. I might have to write a review later in the month.

      That's true. I was bullied in middle and high schools and that is why I can be sensitive at times. I used to be the butt of jokes that eventually turned into rumors and it made school miserable. When he took my hand to get me out onto the ice more, I did appreciate it. It was fun, it was very fun.

      However, you're right and I should keep coming from kindness. Next time I do want to venture out, but I'm being careful. I had to pay $107 to have my shoulder checked out the last time and since I am moving, I can't continue to put that type of money out for injuries (my job only offers a high deductible plan and it;s painful). That's why I've been careful.

      It totally did! I made a new little friend. :) She watched me and imitated what I did in terms of skating. She was improving and had a lot of fun gliding. I'm glad I could be of help.

      You too, dear friend!

  2. I'm impressed that you were able to do that! :3

    Keep going ^_^ Maybe one of these days I'll be able to do it, myself!
