Slalom/sliding is relatively safe compared to skateboarding/aggressive inline/bmx, but it is also time consuming and causes stress. I had university to worry about back then and couldn't focus on getting my tricks down.

Instead I found that just skating around and enjoying the breeze helped take my mind off my worries, so I just do that now. Cheap transport too.

Of course I break out a trick or two while skating around to impress little kids or whenever I feel like it and the terrain permits it.
Thanks for the insight! Just skating around makes me happy too. Learning a new move or trick now and then adds spice, but I just don't have the discipline to skate cones all day.
