Extreme Sports - What's in your bag of tricks

I'll never forget the very first time I saw a skateboard & not one on television. I must have been about 7 or 8 years old back then, and when I tried to stand on it I simply fell on the floor. At that time I was living in the big city of New York at 174th street in the Bronx in a tough dangerous drug infested neighborhood at the time, so skate boarding became a way out of street life for us young city kids. Not everyone there was bad, or into drug dealing then our building we lived in was probably the cleanest one & had the most friendly people too. I couldn't understand why someone would take a board and put some wheels underneath it, so that you could fall, and almost break your head. Flash - & Drag and Drop Design.

Romancing the Stones by Dancing. Going out to clubs to find people, to date, to have fun with friends, and to seek a romantic night of dancing pleasure is what many people do today, and have been doing for years.

Romancing the Stones by Dancing

A night club can make for a great escape from the everyday hustle, and pressures that people experience, so dancing is what many look forward to. I loved watching the dirty dancing movie many years back as a child, which became my motivation to learn as well, & so movies can help us all get into the swing as well. Romance on the dance floor in a club can be tough at times depending on how crowded it is, the female to male ratios & the particular season of the year it is as well.

I do believe the summer is the best time to go out and party with a loved one, because when it comes to romance the less clothes the better sometimes. That's strictly my opinion, but many people may prefer the spring. Rap Lyrics in Controversy.

Rap Lyrics in Controversy

Him and Biggie Smalls we're actually friends long ago and we're going to unite their music movements prior to being persuaded, and misled by instigators on the ground to begin waring and fighting verbally in lyrics against one another back in the late 90's. He began a movement of his own through his music which stirred up a huge uproar from as far as the west coast of the US, to the East coast, from inner city to inner city, and even reached many rural communities. His music was very serious at times, and was loaded with tremendous passion about many deeply embedded inner city stories of lives that were shaken by poverty & harsh living conditions. Meditative Focus. At this point I was over joyed to actually have in my possession something that has captivated my mind for years, leaving me wondering & desiring to learn much more about it all.

Meditative Focus

I quickly got to the reading of each book, I was so absorbed into them that I literally read 8 books in a matter of 2 weeks, this was something I had never done before. The content levels of the info I was absorbing was far beyond my previous college experiences I had studied years back of some related subjects. I Can't think of what to write my next hub about. Poetry for me became a sort of artful game, where I could literally jump into a hidden reality that never ever existed before, but through writing these new found realities of my mind, bright new radiant idea's would suddenly pop up like colorful butterflies do so unexpectedly, on some nicely weathered dreamy day.

I Can't think of what to write my next hub about

Each line allows for a differing view or perspective, but doesn't have the same rigid structure of a prose piece of literature. It wasn't long before I was able to fill up an entire book with words I was gathering from all around me. Life brings new meaning to poetry.

College Life - Venturing Around Campus. First day Out On Campus College campuses are something of a fantasy for most young people, and it was a dream for me to finally get onto it to meet others like me. The College Experience - my take on it all. I went to college back when college was truly a fun experience, people wasn't losing their minds, & doing harm to themselves or others back then due to the harsh survival stats today with the economy and all. It was the year 1993, and I was 18 years old at the time, these times had their up's & downs for me & my family in particular. I was somewhat forced to drag my clothing through the city trains in a shopping cart, it definitely felt embarrassing, but I am proud to speak about it today.

Now this might all sound kinda lame compared to today's stories of survival, but this is my true experience. College Activities. I use to love watching the Manhattan Jaspers play basketball, this NCAA D-1 team when I was in college around 1993 was serious. Their head coach at the time was Coach Franscilla, I forgot what his first name was, but oh well I guess I can google it. LOL. The important part for me was in how the teams chemistry was actually formulated, and how they displayed such a powerful presence on the court throughout all the years I was there.

The School of Civil Engineering. Collective Idea's. Does Life have a true Purpose? Purpose is something that people find hard to define for oneself. My purpose in life is one that has a biological essence, a philosophical order, a social atmospheric pressure, a conduct that's disorderly at times, & spiritually may be seen as absent when not focused upon. Overall the purpose to life in general seems to lean towards repeated efforts to achieve levels of successive achievements, on the grounds of survival, mental capacity, physical expression, spiritual awakenings, governmental freedoms as well as controls, & humanities interpretations of the world as a whole. The purpose of particular things for instance will be determined by the means at which it's usage can have some sort of end to it. Example of this is in the use of a specific object that one may possess. Does Adulthood take a toll on People Today. Major Earth Quake - East Coast.

North Carolina - Was in harms way & more On Aug 26th 2011, The Eastern portion of North Carolina is expected to receive the first land fall of the massive category 3 Hurricane, over 200,000 people were under mandatory evacuations yesterday morning through the afternoon. AfterMath of Irene in Jamaica Queens. This uprooted tree is leaning on the power lines which pretty much saved this house from utter destruction. There was a great deal of asset damages related to hurricane Irene, and 40+ fatalities across the entire east coast.

People were warned by the government ahead of time to get far away from the danger zones, but even then accidental deaths still occurred, this tells us that people truly should heed to the words of our government, city, state & local officials when the word gets out to evacuate your area. Thank god the number of fatalities were very low this time, because Irene's destructive path of land fall reached across all the eastern sea board states except for Florida & was in the path of millions of American's that live or lived on the East Coast.
