Alanah is amazing. I’m inlove with you, Alanah. Be mine.

Believe everything happens for a reason: Supposedly, I guess so, why else would it happen if it was for no reason at all?

I don’t really follow or read other peoples blogs, I mean sometimes when I come to tumblr I will read like the top 3 posts then go on my way to posting my own shit. This isn’t because I am self absorbed, nor because I don’t like the people I follow. I only follow like 2 people, and that is because those 2 people are the ones who convinced me to get a Tumblr, suffice to say I do love those two people. Both are about to finish their last schooling year and head out to the big wide world, which really got me thinking, what have I done since I finished 3 years ago??
I had to go do some gayhouse errand for my mum last night, so I found myself driving, alone, for a solid chunk of time. 30min there and back easy. I started to think to myself where exactly am I going with my life, it is a scary thought to think, partly because I have an undying need to be straight baller in the future. I like too many things, and heart too many expensive things to not be. I studied Business Majoring in Events for like 2 and a bit years and got that degree, I never really want to go back to Uni/College cause I hate that shit. I prefer working full time to having to do queerbag assignments and all that.
So what the fuck am I to do with myself. I honestly have nooo idea. But this whole Downshift ordeal is slowly looking to be a solid future for myself. The more I look into it the more I realise exactly what I have accomplished in basically a year. I run what is deamed as the largest Car Community Blog in Australia, I was also the first to really start up a car community blog. I have 6 people who currently work for me, and will hopefully be at 10 before the year is out. I am practically famous in the sense, everyone knows me. If you remember the popular kids in school who everyone in the grade liked, think that kinda deal but on a WAY bigger scale. Everywhere I go people come up and wanna chat and hang, I ain’t one to brag but fuck yeah, shit is gangster.
Above is a car meet that I started back in 2007 with 6 close friends. That shot is 1/4 of the cars and people that turned out last month. All those headlights you see are lining up to get in. We now nudge 120+ month in month out. I would know 70% of those 120 people. I recently got featured in a magazine for basically being badass, I won’t lie. Two page feature as well, get your jealousy on. I get free access to all events since they now know me by name at all the big ones, I promote their event they let me in for free.
Since June 5th the site has seen 25,000+ hits. That is 25,000 in 5 months….work that shit out, solid effort.
I also got a OP17, not really the most book smart kid, and generally all I had going for myself was my ability to talk, and non-shy approach to people. No one else in my grade has that sort of shit on their resume, they are either in between study or in an apprenticeship. In 1 year when they will be finishing degree’s and apprenticeships if I was to work those stats out for the future. I think I would happily promote myself as being in the better position.
November 12th 2011:
- 15 People working for me and Writing/shooting for Downshift,
- an ‘average’ of 712.18 views per day,
- 18,000+ views per month
- Sponsors paying me so they can advertise
- Downshift Events to be held once every 3 months = $$$$$$$$$$$$
- Magazine promotion everywhere
- Rory becomes baller.
- Gears of War 3 will be out ZOMG
- Looking forward to Darksiders 2, DOUBLE ZOMG
- COD 8 on the horizon.
Of course I thought about ‘other shit’ while I had some true alone time, buuuttt for ‘certain’ reasons I am not going to post on here. Let’s just say life is fucking good lately, really fucking good.
I found it in my letter box….holy dick fuck, it was potentially the funniest thing I have ever had happen to me EVAR. Took a few days to get my mates to confess it was them but still, lultastic all around.
In all honesty I cannot really ever complain about life, I lead a pretty eventful one at that. But I have a lot of fun and do what I want. I love my job, I love my lifestyle plain and simple really. Downshift is going super strong and next step is standalone events which are definitely in the pipeline for this summer I can assure that. Also putting plans together for Downshift Invitational Birthday Bash, contacting media and shit. Going to be HUGE.
It is funny how some weeks are bland and un-eventful and others are full of shit. I have been working a lot more often, meaning lately I am fairly drained. Week just passed was massive to say the least. I am going to explain it backwards cause I am rad like that. Spent Sunday rolling around with the boys grabbing food and shooting the shit, working on cars. Saturday was a track day, it was massive, so many people were in attendance. I knew probably around 6,000,000 guys out there which was nuts. Felt like I talked my life away that day. So many homies hitting the track. Street racing home in track cars = <3 to the max. Bobby’s Civic is so motherfucking badass I could literally see myself raping it. After that I locked my keys in my car out of pure idiocy, I genuinely felt like the stupidest bro on the planet. 45min later I was off.
That night was my boy Andy’s 25th, so we went into town. After grabbing a killer feed at Hogs Breathe Cafe (I actually typed Hogwarts then…wtf hahaha) I don’t head out to often these days, kind of over it I guess. But we hit the town and got super wrecked it was a good night. Lot of fun, and no large hangover to follow the next day which was the icing on the cake.
Spent Friday milling and played Darksiders all day, such a badass game. Kind of sad I finished it but seriously loved it all. Would rate it as one of the best games I have played, even if it gets super annoying at times. Instead of having an early night that night, due to having a 8am wake up for the trackday. I somehow conned Alanah into hanging at maccas. Got there at like 11pm and bailed at around 3:30am. Bed at 4am for a 8am wake up was NOT anywhere near being remotely fun, but if I could do it over I would have stayed hanging with her till 8am and left for the track. That girl oozes so much radness it is insane. Although pretty sure if I stayed till 8am I would have looked like a actor from the set of Dawn of the Dead.
Another busy week ahead, working lots, Drift day on Wednesday and the new Star Wars to finish by Thursday so I can get my money back. Partly because it is kind of homo (well in comparison to Darksiders) and also because achievement whoring ftw.
