Shot two days before Christmas, in the middle of nowhere hours away, on a morning when it was so cold that the water in the dirt tire tracks was frozen ice…it was definitely a interesting morning for sure. I worked through the holidays and am now finishing up the story now (it’s around 3:30am)…During the last couple days, I also finished up another shoot/story where I rented a car and drove out hours away to San Luis Obispo, CA to meet a fellow enthusiast who drove out from Washington state. I also have a loving girlfriend who is my heart and two separate families that we had to go make time to see during the holiday weekend as well as friends who are important to me. It would have been very easy to just refuse work, rest, and hang out for the holidays, but this work isn’t going to do itself. You know what I mean?
This is a random ass post, but it’s been brought to my attention that there are some kids out there who are drowning in self-entitlement, chomping at the bit to critique and speak ill of others when they have nothing to show for themselves. These individuals aren’t talking about me, but I’ll use myself as an example to show you that there are people out there grinding and working their asses off to make something of themselves. Not hype-beasting, gathering Facebook friends, and using other people’s content to make themselves “known”. It’s a shame that you can even try to tell someone that they aren’t doing something correctly when you haven’t figured out how to do it on your own. It’s a shame that there are some kids out there these days that have replaced humility with self-entitlement and the glorification of pride that’s never been earned. To have humility, to be a humble human being, is not something you can wait in line to buy like a fucking pair of Concords….it has to be LEARNED.
It’s very easy to criticize the work of others, but appreciate the dedication to their craft. I may not be the best around, but I fucking love my job. Go blog about THAT….“Things may come to those who wait…but only the things left by those who HUSTLE.”
Closing out the year with a bang. Thanks for looking, and thanks for your support…
