Hey guys, just me again, back to share a little bit of what’s rattling around in my head.
The internship is going super, I’m learning tons. At times it can be a little daunting with all the tasks that require my attention but slowly but surely I’m pushing ahead and learning (Cue Rick Ross, Push it). Ain’t gonna hold be down! I’m enjoying this experience a ton, I’m not sure if it’s the internship or just because I’m stoked outta my mind to finally be living in California (You might have been expecting that I’d be dropping the “Cali” word there, but i ain’t no kook). This is a little bit of a trial by fire since we’re sooo free to follow our ideas and see how they play out, this can be a little unnerving but at the same time pretty liberating as well. Big ups to the bosses for not micromanaging, you have a lot at stake to allow us just to do our thang. A rather painful part of this experience is the daily reminder of my inadequacies in skating. Like I told the kids today, I’ve been blessed with a lot of abilities in this life but skating definitely is not one of them. FML.
Maybe with my trick tip sessions with Geoff and Andrew I’ll be able to overcome this shortcoming.
I had the good pleasure of attending Blackbox’s Crossroads, which was super rad. I got to have some words with a few pros, I’d name drop but it’s not a big deal to me. Sheckler, Lutzka, Brown. The best trick comp was insane, like watching someone play skate 3 or tony hawk pro skater in real life. It was also rad to bond with my fellow interns, I think a good time was had by all.
My voice doppelganger?
I’m pretty stoked to be starting to get my plans in motion. Facebook and Twitter is a daily challenge that I find to be super fun. It’s like a game of chess to see what I have to do to keep the peeps coming back for more. F-U-N. Hookit continues to be the bane of my existence. The kids are amazing but that site is allowing my patience to grow by leaps and bounds.
Funny Story: So I restricted my identity on my blackberry to call my hookit kids, and one actually answered but kept saying, “no really, who is this? You’re not really from BambooSK8″ and wouldn’t believe me that I wasn’t one of his boys prank calling him. Classic.
That’s about it, just trying to take this experience day by day and make the most of it. Jah Bless!
