My Favorite Spots To Longboard In Cleveland

The atmosphere alongside Edgewater beach is serene, you can hear the waves of Lake Erie hit the sand from the paths in one ear, but still enjoy the sounds of The Story So Far's "Proper Dose," album in the other.

My Favorite Spots To Longboard In Cleveland
Tabitha Timms

I'm a big fan of longboarding, but it's hard to find spots to go. I have a couple of friends who are into skateboarding. One's favorite spot is Cleveland Streets — a DIY spot in Berea, OH because its "Freeing and any ledge is deemed Skate-able."

For me it's a bit different, I like to cruise along. I mean my board is classified as a "cruiser" after all. I don't like to spin around or try crazy tricks. I like a nice breezy ride. Sometimes I can even put my headphones in and enjoy a nice boarding session.

So where do I go? Since skate parks aren't the place for longboarding, it seems difficult to find a place to go. But really I can make anywhere my skate park.

I can ride around the streets by my house in the summer during the afternoon, since there are barely any cars due to everyone being at work.

There are empty parking lots by closed down stores that light up at night so even as the sun goes down, I can still cruise along — even if it is just around in the same circle. It's calming and I love it.

Although there are many places I like skating, through Metroparks around the suburbs of Cleveland, nothing beats skating alongside the beach at Edgewater in Cleveland.

The atmosphere is amazing, you can leave one headphone out so you can hear the waves of Lake Erie hit the sand from the paths in one ear, but still enjoy the sounds of The Story So Far's "Proper Dose," album in the other. Sounds great right?

Even if you don't longboard, you most likely have your own little piece of heaven, and skating along the beach is mine a nice place to visit inside my head when life gets hectic.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
