I was pushed to play sports, make a lot of different friends, play music, get good grades, and pretty much everything a parent would dream for their child to do.

Most people would define unpaid work as anything where you do not get paid money for your services, such as volunteering. I disagree. Even though you do not get paid in cash, the benefits can be far more rewarding. Putting unpaid work in terms of money however, my personal favorite is teaching different people, mostly my friends, how to skateboard. My least favorite, however, is doing favors for people who never repay

The time the skateboard spent in the sensor increases as the distance away from the sensor increased and the velocity decreased as the distance away from the sensor increased.

So I got to show up the next day with a used, beat up board a
