Ive been meaning to write..
Kind of at a cross road with what I want to do with my life at the moment..
Sometimes I think about it all and it seems overwhelming.. madness. I start by thinking of where I want to end up and have no idea.. I just know that I need the following things involved.
- Creativity - art/designing/writing/photography/filming
- Sports related brands - Fashion/Extreme sports/Surf Brands
- Giving back - helping the planet / world out - wether it be through other companies or stating my own saving our oceans / keeping beaches clean / giving kids water in other countries .. etc
- Being involved in Events - attending/planning/marketing
- Travel - new cultures/experiences/seeing the world
So.. someone look at that and tell me… WHAT CAN I DO.
~ Sunday, August 5 ~
