Is the cold weather getting you down? Dreaming of a sunny day at the beach? Here is an easy solution to all your November blues. BUS SURFING!
This is a how-to guide for this simple and fun sport. In no time at all, you can become a bus surfing pro!
STEP 1: Ditch walking to school and take the bus (easy enough considering the cold temperatures 🙂
STEP 2: Stand up and offer your seat to someone else (isn’t that nice of you! 😉
STEP 3: Make sure that there is enough space around you so that you will not be bumping into anything or anyone.
STEP 4: Let go of anything you are holding onto, but keep a support within reach so that you can quickly grab onto it if you lose your balance.
STEP 5: Assume the surfing position! Keep your legs slightly apart and squat in order to have better control over your center of mass.
STEP 6: As the bus accelerates and makes turns, try to maintain stability. If you anticipate that you will lose your balance or bump into something, grab onto a support. Remember, safety always comes first!
STEP 7: Picture yourself on a beach and temporarily let go of unwanted thoughts.
STEP 8: Even though you are having fun, remember to get off at the right stop!
Who said that getting to class can’t be fun?
