It’s been a year since I started taking figure skating lessons (I’m fifteen, by the way).. and the most advanced or “impressive” thing I can do so far is a Waltz jump. A bloody Waltz jump! What on earth??? I’m taking one lesson a week, and one practice session. which admittedly, isn’t very much at all, but you’d expect more progress after an entire year of that, wouldn’t you? I feel so self conscious seeing all these other skaters just shining on the ice, while I’m still struggling with Mohawks. I can’t switch coaches, there’s just two at the rink I go to and the other one’s schedule is jam packed, unfortunately. I’m so sad, I want to compete and jump and go backwards and all that jazz but nope.. waltz jumps.
