Yeah I didn't go down any "bad paths" per se but I definitely made some choices that I would do differently, and my priorities definitely were not in the right place. YOu can't change it, and I don't regret it, but I definitely would be very different if - as the saying goes - I knew then what I know now.

It's the awareness and the failure to commit for me> I fail to commit because I'm scared because I got hurt and because I'm not comfortable. HOping the foam pit solves that. I know I can spin. Used to inline a lot back in the '90s and could throw 5's with ease and huck 7's over gaps and stuff. The mechanics on a board are quite a bit different, but I think conceptually it is similar.
