When you fall down and get back up. Then fall down, and once again get back up. You finally stick it and everyone claps, everyone accept you.
Because you know your going to have to do it at least 100 more times before it's easy and from the looks of it your also going to miss dinner.  
What if you fail?
I won't.

When you kong off your girlfriends back porch and she gets mad at you....because you're in a tux....because you're picking her up for prom. And you don't think you did anything wrong.

Since when is there something wrong with that?

And why didn't you take a railing to the prom?

You show some parkour videos to people and they gasp because someone jumped down from something and then you go, "What, that was only six feet..."

Your back no longer bleeds, the callouses you've developed on your back no longer touch.

....the reason you walk around is to find different ways to get around


You constantly annoy your friends, family members and anyone else around you by commenting how terrible the technique of characters on TV or movies is when they do something related to parkour.


...the majority of essays your written for school relate to parkour a little bit and your teachers always ask you to explain them.

your friends recognize "that look on your face" when you're looking at an obstacle and go "oh, geez. not again."

Your friends have to constantly explain to new people you meet that "Thats just what he does all the time, don't worry about it" as you are trying out some movement or another, rather than socializing with other humans.


These all sound so familiar :p

Yeah It does..... Lol.
A bad traceur does a move untill he gets it right. A great traceur does it untill he is not able to get it wrong.

When you think about asking all of the security guards at school to come at you at once to see if even one of them could catch you. xD
