Hi - I'm just looking for different precpectives out there about skating and me and skating.
I didn't start skating when I was 5 like a lot of people. Infact, I was fifteen when I learned to do a basic three turn. Now, 5 years later, the highest jump I have landed is the double loop. It's not the most consistant jump right now because I have been working majorly on my solo and the required jumps to pass my Sr. Bronze Freeskate test. As for dances I'm working on one last dance in the Jr. Silver section and on the second last skills.
I really love figure skating and want to keep at it. Do you think it's a waste of time and energy, considering my age and I should just grow up and get a career? I work as a cashier and skate before and afterwards. I'm also heavily involved with program assistang CanSkate. I want to coach someday, but I'm thinking I might want to compete someday too (still working on the nerves and getting really good at it).
What is your opinions? Am I wasting my time?
Thanks. I plan to become a more fequent poster
