when i ski..i forget about everything..nothing stresses me out..i dont worry about school or getting a job or just..anything. its more than a fun thing to do for me..i need it. i love it..its not just a hobby for me. i wouldnt be able to stop if i tried. not that i would ever want to try. i love it. its part of me. i wouldnt be who i am if i wasnt a skier.
