DUDE. I work at the mall.... Yeah, I know.

BUT.... I work at Bad Boards which, contrary to popular belief, (and the name) isn't that bad. There is, given, new ownership and we are forming up an entirely new staff. Basically I'm a manager in "training" and the store is going to be entirely different, from name to aesthetic to products. I'm really excited about it. I 've always wanted to work at a skateshop, and now I get to run one in the mall! I'll take it.

I'm gonna start blogging about the store and what is changing and what stuff we're going to get in real soon. I probably need like a smart phone or something so it might take a minute before I really start this, bear with me here. More updates coming in the next year or so... Probably just a few weeks though.

Ian spiffs it up a bit...

... Been getting a lot of feedback on the boards we've been leaking out there this week.  Laminate quality is absolutely killer. 

This one guy put a sick paintjob on his.  He texted it to us just now. 

All you with the Fickleboards,  hit us up with how you dress them up.

new year, new interests... or rekindling some old ones?

I haven't shared anything lately because I haven't felt like it.... I've been trying to push skating more than I ever had before and it's been emotionally difficult. I feel like I'm either becoming more like my "true self" or just a different person altogether. Skating has started to take a different route too. It's becoming more intense than ever and I don't know what I want to do with this sudden emergence of energy. It's almost like I'm grounded... To tell you the truth, I don't really know.

I've fallen in love with The Smith's and coincidentally I began an extended hiatus from eating meat. Honestly they don't have anything to do with each other, just the harmony that fills... I also recently moved into the third floor of Lew's house, which is a full blown apartment. I'm grateful and also very alone. Even though you're surrounded by people all the time, it's so easy to become lonely and stop participating in social situations. I know because I often avoid circumstances where I have to talk to people, even if I like them. This all could be a part of the natural winter down fall of our emotions and personalities. Our emotions run hotter the more couped up we are from the outside world, thus slamming us into depression. It's especially hard when you are a skateboarder and you rely on this wonderful experience we know as skateboarding to bring you back up again. Well I think that'll be all for now, just had to get these things off my chest. I suppose no one really reads this anyway...
