QOTD: There is nothig you can't do, if you set your mind to it. Anything is possible! - Rick Hanson


First, you should know that it took me six months to land. It didn't happen overnight. Determination is key, and you have to want it bad! You can't just say "Yeah, I want to land my axel" and not work hard for it. I will tell you straight forward it's not easy and takes a while to land.
