Spring is almost here and it can’t come soon enough for me. I’m ready for the sun–and over the rain. Growing up as a skateboarder on the wet East Coast, I developed a hatred of rain. Rain meant that I couldn’t be outside rolling around. Computers and video games were my outlet in the case of rain which turned out pretty good. I now make my living from screens, pushing pixels. I should probably thank the rain for this outcome. But, maybe if it hadn’t rained so damn much, I would have been a better skateboarder. No regrets.
