These are my Thunder trucks from one of my first skateboards. There a little old and used, so they may look worthless to you, until you hear my story about them. Last year I got very sick because of my stomach issues toward the beginning of the year (of school). We just recently (my family) found out what was wrong with my stomach. Anyways last year I had to be puled out of school and be homeschooled because I was sick for too long and the school was starting to give problems to my parents. I ended up being home schooled, so I didn’t have many friends last year, only ones that lived around my street. So to pass the time by while everyone was at school (I only had 1-2 hours of schooling) I skateboarded. I built them, used them, learned tricks and basically it was my life. I ended up stopping for a while, but I’m starting to skate again. Just one thing, I cant land ANYTHING. Last year was a sad time for me, and I love having more friends this year, I don’t really feel left out now. If my friend never got me into skateboarding (like I said I had a few friends not zero friends) it would have been even tougher for me. Not as much time would of been passed quicker, not as much exercise, and how could i forget; not as many weird looks from people.
