When was the last time you did something for the first time? ... ;)
I remember the first time I tried rollerblading was back in the 90s (some 15 pounds ago). A churchmate lent me his rollerblades, and so I taught myself how to glide (where? -- on our rooftop). I never had the chance to practice after I returned the blades to its owner. I wanted to pursue rollerblading as a hobby then but unfortunately I wasn't able to.
Fast forward: Vince, Donn and I went rollerblading at Castle Roller Skating Inc., in Lancaster, Pennsylvania this evening. Although I still remember the basics of rolling and gliding forward, I got a bit scared when I saw the fast skaters in the rink (which are mostly kids - like little kids). I wasn't even in the rink for a long time when I fell *hard*, that after some time, I decided to keep off the rink and stay on the side, where I got to practice on the carpeted floor ^^

Anyway, I believe I can do better next time. I was actually fine when I was skating on the side, so I think I just need to gather more confidence and work on my balance, and hopefully, I'd have more courage to join the skaters in the rink the next time we do it ;)
