my birthday . 4 days 5 hours . got some riding done in some shitty condition . but what pissed me off is someone accused me doing stuff that i didnt do like 6 months ago . purely just hated my guts . but overall it was a good birthday . turned 25, i cant bliv how fast time pass me by . then again i am living in my dream at the moment . should savour every moment of it

4 days 6 hours
4 days 7 hours
6 days 1 hour
its 6am and i cant sleep . i dunno why . was watching couple old edc and love fest footage and the words of shelly were playing in my head 'you cant leave gsc, you cant live without it' and i cant deny i do miss it a lil . and watching the old footage, random people coming together as one . and how ironic is that, the next event is Together As One . i do miss moments of nyc too . iv single handedly crush all the nyc memories in one blow . but i shouldnt be worrying about meeting someone special . sometimes i wonder maybe i dont love yet i want to be loved . but anyways i should focus on the mission i was set here to do . 100 days of riding and the progression of my snowboarding skillz . so far so good .

mammoth day 1, 1:30am depature, drove 314 miles, 5hours later i arrived . saw my first sunrise, it was the most prettiest thing iv ever seen . snow was good conditions, powder . but then again, everything comes with a price, i thought i was gonna come here, straight up ride my days away, how naive i was . the pass alone cost aroune $1600, and to think anyone would give me $1600 that easily is plain dumb . my had to be snap, the sides and back, but my own hands, its not even the same length at the moment, i had a $50 haircut a few days before, it went down the drain . the rules were amazing . there were so many rules, it felt like i was literally joining the army, the housing has nothing, didnt even provide a clothe to wipe the tables, its not a hotel, its a housing . very naive of me . riding, i thought i would be able to get my first chair today, how funny, i got on the chair alright, with the mammoth uniform on, but without my board strap on my feet, it was the first time ever to get on the chair without a board, it felt so weird . and as far as riding goes, it has to be earned .. $1600 season pass has to be earned, not given . but i wont give up, when i think back how bad i wanted this . these things arent gonna stop me . im gonna be stronger and move forward ..
