Much like my idol, George Costanza, I've always wanted to pretend to be an architect, which is one of the main reasons I started I'm Travel Size as a way to share the designs I loved. Growing up I lived on a farm and had no interest in building things. I wanted to move to the city where people had technology and didn't talk slow, and where you could just buy what you needed. After I grew out of this dumb phase of my life I realized that making things was fun and I realized that I in fact can make things, so if I never said it before THANKS DAD for showing me how.
For many people making things doesn't come naturally and I relate to that because for me growing up, things like surfing and skateboarding don't come naturally. Being a surfer is my other "George Costanza pretend moment." In the country there was no cement to skate on and I was two hours away from the closest beach so surfing seemed imposible, plus, I've always been too afraid of falling down and getting hurt. A few years ago I stumbled upon these guys surfing just outside of NYC and ever since then I've kinda been obsessed with the idea of learning to surf. The beach has always felt like home, so my goal is to finally get on a board and take some lessons hopefully this year. The moral of this post is stop pretending and start living. If your ever want to see what NYC inspired surf culture is like check out the guys at Saturday's NYC.
This week ITS is being curated by [JEREMY ALLEN]. Jeremy is a country boy with an iPhone, a farmer with a Dropbox. His flannel shirts help him blend in well both in his hometowns of Raleigh, NC & Skippers, VA. Jeremy is the Executive Producer at TMSDOTORG and even we aren't sure what that means. When he isn't dealing with tech issues here he is dreaming up ways to live his day dreams - it's pretty inspiring. He's on twitter and is also available for children's birthday parties.
