Lately is a time for us all to have a bit of extra time to ourselves, no plans or distractions from spending time on reflection.
Here's my current thoughts.
Once upon a time and it does feel like a previous lifetime I used to be obsessed with cars.
As a teen I remember playing Gran Turismo and becoming fascinated by one car specifically, The Nissan Skyline R33.
When I hit my 20s I dropped the skateboard and got the rwd Japanese sports car of my teenage dreams.
Mainly by working my ass off from a young age and spending so much money I'd comfortably own my own private island off the coast of Ireland (that's not a joke)
I didn't buy one, I bought three over the years but built and rebuilt my first shell.
This car broke my heart more than any woman, it's been the centre of more drama than I thought imaginable, I've gained and lost friends but by God was it a learning curve.
And when it worked, it put a smile on my (at the time) seemingly always grumpy face. Driving the Skylines (named Rinoa and Kumorizora or Zora) was the best anti depressant I could have asked for.
Do I regret owning/building/spending fortunes?
Do I regret selling them for parts?
Nope on both accounts, it was a different time and a path I needed to take but also one I had to diverge from in order to move forward.
Plus the car scene can be very ego centric.
Glad to have met some of the most amazing people during my time in the car scene for MNC and especially the yearly Drive for Charity events which gave me a cause when I needed it most ♥
Post 2016 it was never the same.
And time was put downwards weightloss, self acceptance and many many adventures.
Some involved cars from racing on the Nürburgring 🇩🇪 and headed to Gatebil Rudskogen 🇳🇴
