A long time ago, when I was in 5th grade my friend came over, and had a Duncan Butterfly. I played with it and got hooked, so I got a Speed Beetle and tried to learn tricks with it. Obviously, I started doing it less and less, until I quit altogether.
In 6th grade, we had something called "Science Camp." Its where all of the 6th graders go to a place called Pathfinder Ranch located in the mountains, and we stay there for 5 days. One of the camp leaders was named Foghorn, and he yoyoed very well. So, reminicing about my 5th grade times, I decided to pick up another yoyo, after Science Camp.
As a result, I got another Duncan Speed Beetle. Very soon though, I knew it was horrrible for string tricks so I got my parents to get me a YYJ Kickside as I promoted from elementary school. Soon, I got my other friends into it. We all had YYJ plastics, but then later on, they bought more yoyos. Justin got a vict, and Jason got an Aquarius. Cause they felt bad for me, they lied to me and said, "Samad, can we borrow $10, we need to buy our friend a B-Day present" So I gave them the money. As I said, they tricked me and gave me a Dorothy bearing instead.
Later on, during the summer, I began saving up for a DM, and after 2 months, I bought one. I used that DM, and got decently good.
Then, thanks to André's chat night, I won a Legacy.
A couple months later, I went to my first contest, and bought my first metal, the Green YoYoFactory G5. Also, thanks to André, I won a Jamboo, but I traded it for a M1, which is on the way to my house.
I love this hobby
