Most advanced student of the week!

I felt just like a kid today. Over the past couple of months I've been taking ice skating lessons from a private coach. I've been trying hard to do what he's been telling me and practicing when I have time but I've been down about my slow progress on the ice. No, I'm not doing any jumps or spins but learning the basics and how to properly skate. But today I was able to do something I never thought I could and with my fear (of an adult) he said it might take me a while. Well today I tried it without him having to hold my hand and I DID it. I was proud of my self but my coach was smiling from ear to ear and was hugging me like a little kid. I've never seen him so proud and happy. Really made me feel like a kid and so good inside. He told me I was the most advance student of the week... but it's only Tuesday night...
Ice skating is hard work but I'm not going to give up and I'll keep trying.
On another note: is there something wrong with me or do I just always scare guys away...

Cool! So what did you do to impress your coach? Hopefully you do have a real coach, not just furniture teaching you :) Glad you are having fun skating - you are very, very brave for trying!!!

Nothing is wrong with you, guys are scardy-cats. But the right guy won't be!

HA HA HA! Yes, he's a real coach.
I did crossovers in a circle which was real hard for me cause I was afraid of falling.
Glad nothing is wrong with me but I sure feel like it. Stupid guy.
