  • There’s still snow on the ground (at this point I’m not sure we will ever see green grass again) but Missouri can’t keep me down any longer! I’M SKATING! Switched out my color setup and everything🍊 foreshadowing? Possibly🔥😘 #moxiskatedaily #moxirollerskates @moxirollerskates

  • Day 51: skated with my mom again, unfortunately my foot rolled inside my skate when I was turning and I wiped out in front of her bike, I’m all good now it just shook me up a bit. Does anyone have any tips for making skates tighter besides wearing multiple pairs of socks?

  • Vídeo 1: Quaaase!!! 😂🤣
Vídeo 2: Patinando pelos corredores da #ufrj me senti numa espécie de paraíso aonde é simplesmente permitido andar de #patins... Numa época em que se complica tanto se deparar com o descomplicado é desconcertante.
Aí entrei na lanchonete #patinando e o Sr que atendia me disse: "Isso é pra quem pode, ñ pra quem quer". Minha resposta: "Mas querer é poder, apenas dito de outra maneira... sei q é uma expressão banalizada... mas as pessoas usam o NÃO POSSO pra justificar o NÃO QUERO"... e assim fiz mais um amigo...
💙 So me resta agradecer. 🙏
Video 1: Narrowly!!!
Video 2: #skating through the corridors of #ufrj makes me fell in a paradise where it is simply allowed to ride with #patins ... At a time when it is so complicated to come across the uncomplicated is disconcerting.
Then I got into the snack bar and a Mr. told me: "This is for those who can, not for those who want".
My reply: "... I know it's a trivial expression ... but people use the I CAN'T justifying the I DON'T WANT"... and this way I got another friend .. .
Gratitude!

  • Day 42/365 #moxiskatedaily 
Well my face isn't very zen but this is definitely my first solid attempt at a zen air. Can't wait to keep working on it. Swipe to see the video of the attempt and also a sushi roll for my IGORS game. Had so much fun skating with @spookster.skates @spineyoyster and @kathmean_slamma . Hopefully we can meet up again next week 💜

  • *Official* day 1/365 of the #moxiskatedaily challenge!! Didn’t skate too long because trying to focus on building confidence and comfort in the skates without getting ahead of myself. My lower back starts hurting pretty quick, but I’m pretty out of shape and I think that is because I need to build more core strength. I’m excited about this journey but it is also hard to face the reality of how much work I have ahead. I’ve started this challenge because I have let myself go (so to speak) over the past 5+ years. Before, I was in really great shape and ate much better. I guess I just hit a point of being sick of not feeling good about myself and not feeling good in general. If I can do this challenge there’s no way I won’t be proud of how I look and feel a year from now. 😬😬 .

After putting my #discoblox on my trucks have way more movement than before and you really feel it with single leg stuff.

  • Skate dreamin’ in my favourite jeans 🌙💫
•
Also dreamin’ cos I stayed up all night (until 7am) doing a final read through of my thesis and I am now very tired! 🤣 But it was so worth it. •
Staying up last night felt like a little ritual: a final long, warm goodbye to a process and a piece of work that has been part of my life, and part of me, for 8 years. •
I was 24 when I enrolled in my PhD. I had little to no idea of what doing this course would look like. I was close with only one person who had done their PhD (my aunty) several years before. I chose this path because I liked writing, I liked research, and I liked having the time to think and reflect deeply on things. Little did I know how much it would challenge, stretch and grow me. •
Now I’m (2 days away from being) on the other side, I’m honestly not quite sure how I feel. I do know I’m thankful I stayed the course, and I’m so grateful to my family and the many friends and colleagues who have supported me over the years. I freaking love research, I love exploring and learning about social work practice, and I truly feel like I’m in that place, doing those things I was made to do, about to embark on a whole new adventure.
•
I also know what it’s like to be a first generation uni student. If there’s anyone out there considering grad school / a masters or PhD study and you want someone to talk it through with, you are more than welcome to DM me. I promise I’ll be honest about my experiences: the good, the bad, the ugly and everything in between 😂 but this morning, as I sip my coffee, I’m reflecting on the good. ♥️ #phdlife #twodaystogo

  • “My art work is very harsh, but the more people I share with  the more positive feedback I get from it. Usually the harsher the message the more it speaks to people. So I think I’m going in the right direction. Maybe I need to be more in everyones face with what I’m trying to say.”

  • Spots like this are great to practice sidestance (toes pointed out ⬅️➡️) and small crossovers if you are beginning to learn them! Find a circle & use it as a guide for your feet for learning sidestance. For crossovers you can practice them and keep going around the circle, especially if you are just learning to pick up and cross one foot over the other. Eventually work on deepening your crossovers, pushing harder, perfecting your form and picking up speed around a larger circle. For sidestance see if you can eventually work up to propelling it, using your back foot to gain momentum and continue. Get lower for both as you improve at the form! And don't wear tight jeans like me. 😜 At the beginning it'll look a lot like I'm demonstrating in this clip (you'll be able to hold it only for short moments, but eventually you'll be able to go around this as long as you want! Like 3, 4 times around without slowing. I just wanted to demonstrate what this looks like when you first are trying so you get a realistic idea of how we all look when we start out! Maybe another day I'll show what you can get to, but it'll just be a long video of me going in circles lol).

  • Day 6/365 - Today I was so excited to go on a cruise with my partner riding along side me on his bike. I found the path on Google maps that connected to the smooth buttery path I rode last time. Except it wasn't the right path and I panicked going down a tiny hill decided to go into grass but hit it hard and tumbled right onto my shoulder. I then slipped another time later into nearly the splits....and then the worst....I fell backwards right onto my coxis bone. I hit it so hard it went straight up my back and into my head. Yes...I cried a lot. It hurt like a bitch. I kept going but that was the end of my skate for the night. 😣 My skates got scuffed too and muddy!
