“Stories are the currency of humanity” - Tahir shah
It’s currently 4:40am while I’m writing this because I cannot sleep due to jet lag. However it’s recently come to my attention the kind of opportunity that is out there in the world for those that literally just ask. The hard thing though is getting out of your own way and just asking.
How do I get out of my own way?
That’s currently something i battle with constantly. For example I’ve wanted to start my own vlog for a while now because I love being in front of the camera but every time I go to do it I talk my self out of it. Why am I telling you this? I guess to come across as more real or so that people understand that everyone, at some point, can go through these emotions. Which is weird cause I normally have a “f*ck what they think” attitude. But as a content creator I constantly want to out do myself and create videos that make you go “wow” that I get so caught up sometimes in the “this cinematic needs to be clean” or “how can I make the sickest transition possible”. Which is all well and good but nothing tops a good story line. I think it’s about figuring out what it is that’s causing you to “get in your own way”, and I think mine is the idea of trying to be too visually creative rather than just telling a good story.
I take @caseyneistat for example. His content is so simple (or at least he makes it look simple) but he doesn’t do anything fancy. It’s just good ol’ fashion story telling.
Now I am still learning to story tell and how I can connect words with visuals that resonate with a person but if you can learn to tell a good story then the attention is yours.
“I’m turning 5 today. When did I get so old?! It’s been a real roller catster of a year. I’ve learned that real furiendship is the kind that loves you even when you’re being a real sassy puss. I’ve learned that true love is when someone curls up with you on the window sill on a rainy day. I’ve learned that sometimes you need to sharpen your claws on a scratch post and sometimes you just need to purr like a baby kitty. Most impurrrtantly, I’ve learned that, even when the biscuits are low, I’ll always land on my four feet. Happy Purrthday to me.” - Mat Patty ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🙀😻 If you live in Melbourne and know a cat that has a story to meow, send me a photo message for an exclusive interview opportunity and for your photo to fleature on #felinesofmelbourne ! 🙀😻
Summer’s over, but Harriet River Swim Club Captain, Kev didn't get the memo... In fact, as our mates @jasandjoes_longroadhome spotted, he’s still out smashing Paddle records here at on @authentickangarooisland! With one of Australia’s most spectacular beaches just downstream, you, just like Kev, will find it all too easy to go with the flow in this wild wonderland, with @kangarooislandoutdooraction’s range of guided and self-guided trips along these tranquil waters, and nothing but the chatter of native birds and wildlife along the way. Oh, and if swim class happens to be in session when you drop by, you’d better be quick off the blocks... Kev loves teaching visitors a lesson! 🐨💦 🏊♂️ [📍Location: just 2 hrs flight from Sydney to in – then a 35 minute flight (or 2.5hrs drive/ferry to ]

Since I was little, I have always dreamt of being a nomad, and seeking out freedom. I think this is why I became a cook. (All I need is my chef knife kit to survive anywhere) and daringly headed to New York.
It’s been exactly 10 years since I graduated from @theculinaryinstituteofamerica in 2008. After worthy experience which gave me many unforgettable memories and lessons in NY, I floated around the world like cloud. I really loved it.
During my journey, I met many friends, diverse cultures and cuisines. I learned to cook from the local people and then can make on my own way with my background.
I absorbed the diverse tastes, colours, and cooking techniques from other cuisines and people, and transformed into my own style
And now, I present the results of my experience at @janchi_koreanfeast , my fist baby.
At @janchi_koreanfeast , the dishes don’t look exactly like traditional Korean dishes, however they contain very authentic flavours, carefully combined fresh local ingredients and are prepared with modern cooking techniques to enhance the taste, texture and aesthetic of each dish. Welcome to my world.
