I have finally nailed my ollie. It took me months of being too scared to do exactly what I knew I needed to do in order to make it happen, and finally having the courage to do it. Soon after, it was manageable. I am still very much a beginner when it comes to skateboarding, and I know that I have a lot of fear that holds me back in comparison to a lot of other beginners I skate with. But for me, it’s about doing something that I really love (despite my crippling fear) and not giving up. I think there is also a lot to be said about doing something you might not technically be great at in the first place as well. Anyone can do something they are naturally gifted at, but it takes even more drive to stick at something you aren’t the best at. When I get to a level I think it’s worth sharing, I will definitely share some photos and videos here.
Fit in a fair amount of shooting last week and also attended Freunde von Freunden‘s #thesoonernow, which was an incredible day full to talks all about ubanization in the modern internet age ranging from talks about local food movements, the airspace phenomenon in the age of air bnb, non-profit movements to help the regufee population and a lot more.
Other than that, there is just a lot of work and photos to edit in time for tomorrow. I have been working really hard at not loosing a social life while trying to grow my career, but it’s also extremely important for me not to entirely loose my focus.
Ever week starting this week in the month of December up until Christmas, I will be announcing a Sunday giveaway, which means you have 4 chances to win amazing shit all December. How does that sound for holiday cheer? The winner will be chosen the following Sunday of each announced giveaway.
For the next 7 days, you have the chance to win this incredibly soft and beautiful plaid scarf and vegan nail polish from local Berlin store, Broke + Schön!
