Misguided



I've never known what it's like to belong. I've always felt out of place. In my family, in school, on the street, at work, in life. I'm always the odd man out. It's like there's this other world where everyone seems to live and I only get to see it from a distance. Things happen around me and I merely observe it, but not really experience it. Like I'm living without existing. Or perhaps the other way around, whichever sounds more poetic.

WHY I'M A MINIMALIST


I recently made a new youtube video discussing my views on minimalism, how I became a minimalist & also the controversy around it. My views on minimalism might differ from what you've heard before. I just wanted to make it clear that not all minimalists are the same.

25 THINGS ABOUT ME


I'm back with a new video o my youtube channel. And this time I'm doing something totally new! It felt super weird shooting and editing this video. I'm so used to writing blog posts and editing photos that it comes with a sense of security. But speaking on camera definately did not come easy for me.

WARSAW: A VISUAL DIARY



I don't really talk about it a lot, but I have no idea how it's like to live in a city you love. I often feel like I was born in the wrong part of the world or at least the wrong country. I don't identify with my nationality, I don't care about local news and I don't feel like a partiot. I have no idea of what it's like to feel a sense of belonging.

BLACK CLOTHES MATTER



Powerful & in control. That's how I feel. That's how an all black outfit makes me feel. I don't understand people who underestimate the power of clothing. Fashion is something more than just the clothes on our bodies. Fashion is a way for us to show the world who we are or who we want to become. With the right clothes you can do anything, you can be anything, you just have to want it enough. And believe me, I want it. I want it bad. And when I wear black, it's like something awakens in me, that beast that's living inside of me. And it's hungry. It's hungry for success. We often forget about our ambitions and tell ourselves that we're satisfied with what we have. But the truth is, I want more. And I'll go and get it, it's waiting for me somewhere, waiting for my beast. And don't worry, I'll get there, even if it means going against the stream.
