When I tell people that I'm learning how to skateboard, I usually receive a pitiful glance combined with a judgmentally toned “Why skateboarding?” To answer, I have one of two options: I can provide a polite answer along the line of "I wanted to try something new!” Or, I give them the answer they really want, that I'm losing my mind after breaking up with my boyfriend of six years, and learning to skateboard is a desperate attempt to find myself.
