Now that school is in full swing and everyone is settling into their routines, everyone has more time for their hobbies.
While some people read and others play sports for fun, one student in particular has a rather unique hobby — riding her unicycle around campus.
Sophomore Michelle Ahrens taught herself how to ride this unconventional form of transportation. “I asked for it for Christmas.”
During her junior year of high school, she said, “I’m going to learn how to ride a unicycle. Why not?”
She originally tried to ride it on her porch in the snow, but ended up waiting until spring to learn how to ride.
As she’s riding around, Ahrens told me about more intense unicycle hobbies. They include mountain unicycling, much like mountain biking, unicycle hockey and unicycle football.
“Go YouTube unicycle football,” she said while laughing.
With all the stress surrounding classes and homework it is nice to see students having fun doing things they enjoy.
Joking, Ahrens and her friends, make comments about starting their own circus. They already have a unicyclist, a baton twirler and a plate spinner.
Activities like these can help anyone unwind after a grueling day, full of classes and assignments.
Take advantage of your free time, enjoy the nice weather or get together with friends and do something fun before the true academic pressure kicks in.
