roll bounce

 photo taken with instax mini 8 by anouk

my rollerskates bring all the boys to the yard, and they're like, they're cuter than yours 
Fun fact: I really love rollerskating.

I can't  do it backwards, 
or on one leg, 
or even really at a fast pace, 
but I do love it.
balance? what balance? 

Moreso, I love the rink itself. 

It's about a bajillion years old and
 has this weird smell of  leather and old popcorn, 
 this terrible eighties carpet that looks like it  might have glowed at
 some point but since has quite given up,
 and disco balls that change color in the ceiling.
The whole thing comes together and 
produces this very wes anderson x urban outfitters catalogue effect.

Don't even get me started on the people.
 There's these five year olds who are always going in the wrong direction, 
and ten year old girls who can do stuff on skates that would blow your mind. 
Then theres the rollerderby girls with the multi-colored hair who show up around 9 
and bring the entire Gwen Stefani catalogue with them. 

I just think it's rad, 
and love dragging my friends along to experience the radness, 
so claps to Anna, Tara and Anouk for being down for intense leg pain.

Andddd then theres me with my bright pink laces and all the grace of a baby giraffe.

Wes would be proud.

Tell me what I want to hear. Or what you want to say.

If you're mean, I'll track you down and replace all your shoes with those hideous white tennis things that are so popular among the very sad.
