I read my friend Sarah’s blog the other day and she’d written a personal post called “My 10 Things”, something which she’d noticed on pinterest. I thought it was an interesting concept and thought I’d tag along.
I’m happiest when… I’m traveling without my phone and without any access to the internet or email. When I’m walking along a foreign coastline with my Wife talking about anything and everything. When I’m sat in the shade reading a good book that I’d be happy to read again. When I reminisce about the day I got married to Jen and every time I look at the scan photos of my soon to be born child.
The best place to be in the summer… The most random place that I thought I wouldn’t enjoy was Crete, one of the Greek islands. It ended up being one of the most chilled out and amazing weeks of my life. And of course I couldn’t help but mention New York. I really really love that city.
I could spend the whole day… writing, reading, planning, designing, tinkering, sketching, thinking, chilling. Dependant on the mood I’m in, I could spend the whole day doing one of those things. Usually I can find myself writing better in a coffee shop, designing at my desk, chilling abroad, thinking anywhere, planning constantly and reading when I can.
I always wanted to be… Fireman Sam. A journalist. An architect. A fighter pilot. A soldier. A designer. A friend that cared. A person that gave a shit.
Favorite thing about my house… that it will be the place my child will know as home.
For inspiration I… think about anything else BUT getting inspiration. I tend to get most great ideas or inspiration when I’m in the shower.
It’s worth the splurge… Books, I buy too many then forget to read them all. Anything that I use on a daily basis, if I use something regularly then there isn’t any point in buying anything second class.
Words I live by… Courage, Discipline, Respect for others, Integrity, Loyalty and Selfless commitment. Just do it.
Day I’d love to live again… I’d love to do my wedding day again. I was very very ill for the 2 days leading up to and the wedding day itself. So much so that there are certain points of the day that I can’t actually remember. I would love to do it again but maybe slightly differently.
Brings out the best in me… Jen.
And with that, what are your 10 things? Write them up and post the link in the comments.
