When I travel, I always bring
I special neckpillow and earplugs
Best travel advice I can give is
Don’t bring too much!
When I do not skateboard I
try and enjoy the privileges of living in the first world, instead of letting all the negative sides of that get to my head.
spend time with friends.
My fitness program is
very variable, but has elements of:.
stabilization, coordination, strengh, speed and balance.
I mostly use my own body weight, if needed. Some machines do help for certain stuff, though.
When I get old I want to
be happy together and sort of healthy.
I would like to see more of
nice gestures and friendly treatment among people. A bit of empathy helps to bring minds together.
That one time where I was in jail because of
that stupid day, I was driving to authorities to get full license for my then Café, got done for having smoked hash the nite before and lost my licence.
I should do more of
Cooking and inviting friends over, sharing good times.

it is very uncertain, but still bright.
I dream of
a Berlin with a couple of sick skateparks and my vertramp somewhere private…
