As some of you may be aware, I am figure skater. I'm not a very good one, but none the less, I am in fact, a figure skater. I love figure skating. It's my heart. It's actually one of the things I always say: Music is my soul, and skating is my heart. I thank God every day that I am able to have both of those. I play piano at church and have a job in Audio Engineering, and on top of it all, I have my ice skating. I have always had my ice skating. Even when things got tough, I was still able to persue it. I was still able to skate. Finances have only affected my skating once. I never want that to happen again. That was extreamly hard to deal with.
I want to take skating as far as I can go. I realize that I will never become a famous world champion, but I can, however, compete as often as I am able. I just completed my first competition where I took home bronze at Fiesta Skate 2012. It was a new experience and I want to continue in this endevour. It's something that my heart keeps telling me to do and I really REALLY want to listen to it.
I was planning on taking up a second job just to pay for ice skating. Thought, I don't know if that is necessarily going to be possible. I will keep praying and keep trying. I really want to make this work. I was finally able to compete. I had to wait until I was old enough age wise to compete in the adult competitions. Otherwise I would be skating against 6 year olds and that would just be weird. At this point, with the level I am at, it is going to start to cost alot more to keep persueing what I truely want. I want this to continue, but I just don't know if that's at all possible. Private sponsors would be nice, but I don't know if I could really get any with only one meddle and one competition. We shall see.
If any one has any advice please let me know. I really love skating and wnat to keep it up until I die.
