This is a crazy thing to be saying in April, but - I WANT TO RETURN TO SKIING! I skiied regularly from age 6 all the way through college. Then I stopped, because once my student discount was gone, I couldn't afford the lift tickets. But when I was packing/moving recently, I came across my little ski medal (bronze, junior race, Bretton Woods) and I started reminiscing about how much I really loved skiing. And I realized I miss it a lot. I HATE HATE HATE snow and winter, as many of you know, but I was thinking... back when I was a skiier, I didn't hate winter this much. Maybe I only hate winter/snow because I don't have an enjoyable winter activity anymore, and swooshing down the slopes again would improve my relationship with winter!
Sadly, my ski equipment is currently collecting dust in my parents' attic. One ski boot is full of mouse poop. But I will clean everything up for the next ski season!!
