April/May 2011 Issue

Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, kickflip
“After being forced to seek shelter from a violent thunderstorm with 50+ mph winds, we headed back out on the rocks so Jaws could try to get this kickflip before the next storm came in. The wind was so strong it dried everything up in about 20 minutes. He was able to nail the kickflip just before another front came up through the valley. And just so you know, no wood was used in this photo or any other from the article. Straight rock skating.”—Jonathan Mehring, photo

    I have no job, live at home in a family of 7 poplee total (5 siblings.) My older brother works, I’m a sponsored skateboarder, but that doesn’t mean I have a job. I don’t really care about anything anymore. I feel pretty hopeless. Why should I even bother waking up tomorrow? Don’t say to pee, because I’d rather just pee in an empty water bottle and not even have to get up.Look, what I’m really asking, is what the fucking fuck should I do with my life before Life does me?Fucking thanks. I don’t really care what you have to say unless it’s important. That’s all. I don’t care. I’m just really stagnant and feel more lost then ever with no one to help me. Don’t tell me go get help. You try to see what you can do to help me. I want random poplee to guide me in my life because I guess I can’t take care of this problem with out figuring out what to do. What’s more important in your opinion? College or a job? What should I worry about first?I have no hope anyway, it’s not like I’ll ever be a pro or even am skater. I’ll just be flow forever. Fuck skating, fuck everything.
