The skill that I going to tell you is roller skating. It is a form of recreational activity as well as a sport. Basically, it is traveling on surfaces with roller skates. It is now quite popular. You can see many children practicing it in front of shopping malls, at squares or even on the streets.
I first saw it on TV when I was in the secondary school and was attracted. I begged my father to buy me one. When the pair of shoes arrived, I could not wait to put them on. It was much harder than I thought. I could not even stand steadily without holding something and put my whole weight on it. As long as I let it go, I fell, sometimes forward, sometimes backward. It really hurt.
But I did not give up. I found a quite narrow street with few people passing by. I leaned on the walls and moved my feet very carefully and slowly. One step, two steps. I was so happy. But the moment I got rid of the wall, I fell again. I practiced from day to day and observed the movements of professional players and tried to imitate them. After three months’ hard training, I finally mastered this skill.
Feeling the breeze against my face and the falling back of sceneries around me, I was really excited. My effort finally paid off.
