Wake up. First thing I do is wipe the coal out my eye then grab my Macbook and check my emails and blogs. Then shower while listening to that GOOD music Cruel Summer album. Got dressed. Ran out my building and prayed that I didn’t miss the number 6 bus. While on the bus I have my ipod on shuffle listening to anything from Kid Cudi to the Drive soundtrack. I get off the 6 at Michigan and Roosevelt then hop on the blue line. Get off at Damen and walk 2 blocks to RSVP Gallery.
Open the shop up. Today I have a lot of deadlines to meet for Spring/Summer 13’ orders, so most of the day I’m on my computer emailing back and forth. Got two great surprises today - a package from Nike arrived which contained the Nike Lebron 9 MVP Pack (only 60 pairs made in the US), and my good friend Mano stopped by and dropped off a Treated Crew hat to me (TREATED CREW members only). After all the hoopla, I go grab lunch at Chipotle and wrap my day up with getting a few new products on the webstore from Just Don.
Late night at the store, closing. I rush to the the blue line. I put on my headphones and listen to Big Sean’s Detroit mixtape the whole way home. I tell myself everyday on my long trip home that “it’s worth it”. I get home, cook me a great quick meal - pasta & grilled chicken. I just bought the Opening Ceremony 10-Year Anniversary Book, so I read that for while - longer than I expected. Very inspiring seeing a similar store to RSVP Gallery open for 10+ years. After I read a good chunk of that book, I lay back. Turn to MTV2 and watch a episode of Guy Code. Get a few laughs. Pull out my Macbook and end my day how I started it - checking emails and blogs. I realize that I’m very blessed and fortunate to be doing what I love to do. I’m grateful for everything I have, but not satisfied.
Three Last Things…
1. What’s up with the shoe store next to your bed?
I love sneakers, I have been collecting for years now. I used to have to sell candy in school just to support my addiction for shoes since my mom wouldn’t. I’ll be that 60 year old guy still wearing sneakers everywhere I go.
2. You say you love what you do and are grateful for everything you have, but not satisfied. What will it take?
I don’t think I’ll ever be truly satisfied. With every dream and goal I accomplish, I just have more dreams and set more goals. I associate being satisfied with being content. I’m too infatuated with becoming a better person to let that happen.
3. What will be the title of your biography?
"Pursuing All Things Pursuable"
