It is the very worst in us that defines the very best in us.
People aren’t the best because they’re talented, people are the best because they’re dedicated.
Another 2 jumps this weekend just gone. My first qualified jumps. Both solos.
Got kitted up in a new hire jumpsuit, it had booties which were different in freefall but fun!
First jump was awesome, ended up going through a cloud though and opening under canopy; I looked down to see my whole body covered in frost haha did a running landing too which was wicked!
Second jump was also sick, was the last to leave the plane which was intense; to look back and see nobody there to watch you leave and it was the first jump I’ve had the most spacial awareness. Being able to see the two-way skydivers that left before me freefalling 5 seconds away was awesome, did some turning and tracking away to give them a bit more room.
Wicked day was wicked. Wish I had more money to go more often. I love skydiving!
Haven’t seen the film yet, read some poor reviews…
But the score is pretty good. Eerie
Makes me want to write a new script..
Everyday life is a constant battle for productivity over self-loathing
The heart wonders, a slave to it’s own selfishness.
The only happiness worth having is the happiness of others, above your own ambitions/desires.
People are people, bad and good. You can only ever strive to be a good person and do good to others. Treat people as you’d like to be treated. What else is there other than selflessness?
Late hours are late and the mind melts in frustration to the confusions of modern day living.
Our brains are our castles, our dreams; our foundations. One foot in front of the other as we walk towards certain death without fear; as all death is certain.
It isn’t certainty that clouds our judgements, rather the opposite.
What happens today? What happens tomorrow? In a month? Or a year or decade? Will we succeed in our goals? Certainty bores us. We clamour to the glimmer of possibility in impossibility. Failure scares us but drives us to jump forward to progress. People leave people behind as they grow.
And we grow and we grow, but what makes a good person?
Mistakes can never be forgotten. Nor should they be.
We are who we are. Intelligent primates; apparently.
oh-ho-ho the hermit life for me. Time’s running out.
I would like to visit Spain, Latvia, Iceland, Germany and then travel North America…
Well that’s one life goal set into motion…
I like skydiving… because it’s good to separate yourself from the mind clutter you unintentionally collect over time. I’ll do my best to keep jumping regularly.
When the road gets tough always remember why you’re doing what you’re doing and what you hope to achieve. Life is short, stay on track.
Apparently I’m “living the life of a monk” as my supervisor yesterday put it.
In all means that could be right, besides the silly haircut or dependence on religion or belief or self-righteousness.
