    Come back with me to the year 2011. It's eighth grade, I'm freshly fourteen years old, and I feel like I'm at the peak of my life. We are going on a skating field trip as a school, and I decided this was the time to prove myself. Girls were watching, everyone was there, if there was a time that belonged to me, it was then. I had never skated before, but I knew that I would be amazing. How couldn't I be? I was the great Austin Howard, a menial task such as roller skating should pose no threat to…

    Skating is something I really hate doing. It is dumb, only thing that would make your butt hurt if you fall and bruise it.

We had a great season leading up to this point, medaling at all but one competition and only missing that one by about half a point. This was…

    There was something very exciting about skating on a block of ice with wet clothes, bruised knees, and frost-bit fingers. It was also extremely heart-warming for me to see my mother and uncle reconnect and make up for lost time over stale french-fries from the concession stand. This sentimental moment was interrupted by a hand on my back, pushing me onto the ice. I was able to pick up my head just soon enough to see my brother laughing as he made his escape. After we had all eventually lost…

    Friday for Zumba!” Said Ruben. Little did I know that meeting Ruben would open doors to things that I have never seen before. Meeting him seven months ago at an Ice Skating Rink would change my life forever. Meeting him taught me both that I should branch out to meet new people, and that I should watch who I become friends with. The day I went to the Ice Rink, was a chilly one. Cloudy, cold, and just enough to make your nose run. I had on a long black coat with a zip up hoodie and no hat, no…
