I know it’s a little weird but: I’m totally terrified of space aliens: the ones with the big eyes, knobby fingers, and giant heads. They scare the crap out of me.
It’s really unattractive when: Skaters are unsportswomanly. Trash talking on the track is a sign that a skater doesn’t feel confident in her own abilities and feels the need to bring others down too. It’s pretty ugly, and I can’t understand why people do it. It seriously baffles me.
The best part of being on a team is: Supporting other people to do what they never thought they could. I love my teammates and they are practically my family.
