I’ve been toying with getting a longboard for a bit now: it’s a bit more flexible than a bike and is more stable than a regular skateboard.

J and I were at Fashion Place in Salt Lake yesterday, and I think I found the one I like: Santa Cruz Dot 40. It has burly wheels for our mediocre roads and enough room and the right curve for my stupid big feet.

It’s $163, so maybe something I look at for next month. It would be fun for the start of the school year, and maybe something that will keep me from dreading the first few weeks of the new academic semester.

You see, I basically make myself ill at the start of a term due to nerves. I’m starting to transition, so I’ll be under even more of a microscope. This could make the commute more pleasant and less dread-filled.
