Ordinary vs. Extraordinary

I don’t want to be ordinary. Clearly, being a blogging, traveling, yoga practicing, skydiver I’m not your average 20-something woman. But, on the other side of the coin – strange as this may sound coming out of the mouth of a skydiver – I don’t want to be too extraordinary either. I love the diversity [...]

Slacking

I know it looks like I've been slacking if you just look at the blog. But I'm constantly posting videos on Twitter and cool images over at Tumblr in addition to what I do here at this blog. The easiest way to keep up with all of this is to "like" Mostly Skateboarding on Facebook where all three feeds are posted as status updates. You can always just look over to the right and see the latest twitter links if Twitter's not your thing.
