Pura Vida

Pura Vida: Costa Rica saying for 'pure life'. It is a lifestyle which is relaxed and promotes the simple life and enjoying life.
Summer is here (sort of) and school is over (for now). I have been absorbed in a haze of warm, summer weather these last couple of days. The smell of barbecues and sun cream lingers in the heavy, warm air, stirring people in their sleep. I haven't been posting online recently, and I'm not sure why, the passion had drained out of me and my motivation with it. Sometimes I wonder why I let myself go through with such stress and things that make me unhappy...I'm still not sure why.
But, now I have a passion burning inside me and I want to do things again, I want to be creative and succeed. My passion has been brought back by this beautiful weather. My skin has turned golden and tanned(which is funny since I should burn as I have auburn hair). Me and my friend went out for the whole weekend skateboarding, photographing our adventures and eating vegan meals. Skateboarding is the best; we would skate down the roads and smile when the tarmac would be smooth under our wheels, allowing us to glide past people and cars. I have become obsessed with skating, and inspired by the likes of the Z-boys and Dogtown, and I want bring back that way of life! I like to think me and my friends are like the Z-girls, we don't care, we just want to skate!

The sky was a perfect blue, which fades as you look out to the horizon. We sat on the roof each evening to eat our meals; the sounds of people laughing in the distance. These days represent my youth, what I live for, sun, skate and photo-taking. And it's fucking awesome!
Sometimes we lose our passion and we feel weak and too insecure with ourselves, so we cower away instead of being loud. Now, I am ready to be loud again.
The light and energy from the sun has seeped into my pours and energised me. Life feels limitless and new!
I hope that there are people out there feeling the same way and living life Pura Vida.

These are the photo's from life recently.
