After a while of deep thinking I thought about what a guy I watch on Youtube once said. About how he doesn’t like definitions. He didn’t like to define himself as a rapper, musician, youtuber or filmmaker, he was just himself and that was it. So what do I actually think about that? What do I define myself as? I remember about 18 months ago, I defined myself as a dork/geek with clothes that where too big. And I guess I was about right. I didn’t really have much happening in my life. But now? When I’m so different, but still the same? When I’m like new upgraded version of that guy. What do I define myself as? As a normal 16 year old? As an entrepreneur? As a the hiphop-guy? As the guy class-clown? As a skier? For the last year maybe it has been a goal of mine to be able to define myself as a skier. And now I finally feel like I can do that. Now that I’ve hit some other skiing-goals. But do I want to? And what difference does it make what I define myself as? I think it makes a big difference. Whatever you say you are, you are. Simple as that. Nobody but you can decide that. And I want to be a skier, so I am a skier, right? Well, I think I have all the criterias filled:
I breath skiing in everything I do.
I have not one, but three pair’s of skis.
I work with ski-tests and stuff. And I love it.
I have a natural creative side which I like to express through skiing.
I’d like to say that I’m a chill dude.
I have confidence.
I’m stoked for other riders.
And I wear a hat most of the time.
That kind of sums up how I am right there. That defines me.
This brings me to something else that defines us. What we want. Sometimes people ask me what I want to be when I grow up. And lately, my dad in particular, have been asking me what I’m going to do when I finish school. I answer with the same thing an both questions.
I’m gonna ski.
That’s it. I don’t know all the details and how everything will go down yet. But I’m gonna ski. The plan is to move to Mammoth Mountain, California and have that as a base for the season. Maybe drive around in the hunt for snow. But I don’t know. What I know is, I’m gonna ski. And I’ll probably work with something that has something to do with skiing. And I’ll be me. Doing what I want do to.
I am a skier.
