DIYin’ it…

park partying…
back in America...
i left America... i could not wait to leave... my routine was becoming routine and wearing on me... America seemed like i needed to get away from it... visiting some family in Germany sounded like a cure for monotony... my skateboard would hopefully allow for some random discovery and adventures in Europe... after being away from the US for 2 weeks, i started looking at the differences between lifestyles... i looked at what i liked and didn't like about each lifestyle... i always imagined and believed i was so much more free when i left America... it seemed like the system we live in was controlling and overbearing... i felt like Germany had such a better way of living than we do in the US... upon further experience and reflection, America is a pretty fucking rad place to be... this doesn't mean that we are perfect... i am still very frustrated with many of our money-driven industries and corrupted systems, but guess what...? these systems and industries exist in other parts of the world as well... money and power (they are one in the same) make the WORLD go round... not just the US government... i always believed America was the most corrupt and crooked of all the continents, but every country is money and power hungry... the US uses a lot of deception to get things done... other countries do gnarly shit as well to maintain control of power... i guess what i am trying to say is that everything is not our fault... we are not perfect, but also not the ones to always point the finger at... upon my arrival back to America, i was excited... i reminded myself that my life is good... i have a good routine... i live in a good place... though i love traveling, home is where i thrive... i feel stagnant when i travel for some reason... i learn and learned so much on my trips outside of the country... i progress in a knowledgeable way, but i regress in my physical abilities... the skateboard only touched my shoes a couple times... i needed to return to home to get back to normality... first thing i did when i got back to feel whole again was shred... other parts of the world don't see skateboarding as an acceptable physical activity... it's hated on... being back in the states let me be me... a skateboarder... i didn't feel like one while i was gone... i really appreciate that... we all should... glad to live in America... happy to be home in Denver. peace and noLove...
