The majority of people always seem to moan saying “they wish they were back in school” when they have a real job. surely you should be pursuing a job that makes you feel like you were back in school?
Anything that interested you enough to feel passionate about should surely be something you can enjoy trying to master for the rest of your life. Even if it is wishing you were back in school.
Exercise your wrists. Exercise your grip. Exercise common sense.
YOU WILL CUT YOURSELF WITH YOUUUURRRRR OWN KNIIIIIIIFE

will you be judged?
will you get comments?
will you get stares?
will you feel helpless?
will you be followed?
you’ve got to walk in pairs
your unwanted opinion is worthless but not harmless
waaaay too excited for this
as i left the studio a wasp appeared at the window wanting to get out. off the back of few annoying wasp encounters my sadistic side decided to leave him in the studio overnight. to die. i watched him at the window because you don’t often get to see such a thing of fear so close up. then something surprising. a spider not one tenth his size jumped on his back to set about making him dinner. madness. i saw a cheetah run after a load of gazelles in kenya once on safari but nothing came of it. this shocked me. survival. competition. makes you think about what is in us that we’re trying to escape from. that would come back as soon as necessity. made me want to read a john gray book to make sense of it. it’s always important when you mention john gray to clarify that you mean the author of STRAW DOGS and not the author of MEN ARE FROM MARS WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS

Here’s a long post, Please take the time to read it!
Click the link, chuck us a couple of quid to raise awareness for MND and for myself cycling 900 miles in sweltering heat.
I’ll be creating a zine to inspire you to cycle somewhere far away.
As most of you probably don’t know, I’m cycling to Nice with my house mates during the course of August. Initially it is purely to tour France, conquer the Alps and spend a few days in Nice before returning home. The trip itself is ~900 miles (more info on the link below), so is no walk in the park. If you know me, you know I’m painfully unfit so this feat isn’t going to be dainty cycle to the pub.
Speaking to my Grandmother a few months ago I learnt that her eldest brother passed because of Motor Neurone Disease, one I’ve come into contact with during my studies. MND is a serious progressive, terminal illness where you lose mobility due to nerval wasting. Albeit this is a “holiday” for me in a sense, I feel it’s fitting to do it in his memory. I’m doing the trip for myself but dedicating the journey to the older generation of my family, for a worthwhile cause, the MNDA. I first set a target £2 per mile of £1800, but I felt this was a bit ambitious, so £900 seems a very doable in the 4 month run up.
Moreover, I’m looking to create a zine after the experience to make a trip like this more accessible to someone who doesn’t know a thing about bike - such as myself not too long ago. The plan is to provide a share the knowledge I’ve gained with guides about bikes, the sort of itinerary used before setting off, as well as a detailed diary of what happened during the course of my trip. If you’d want to collaborate, I’d love to include you. It’s more of a project I want to undertake to keep my creative juices flowing. Of course, all proceeds will also go to the MNDA
Thanks for taking the time to read this, if you know of anyway I can increase awareness, and consequently my donations sum, I’d love to hear from you.
This is happening soon! Have a butch!
