Hi my name is Ray.
I love playing basketball, doing sports,
reading, designing, learning new things, coffee etc.
my outlook on life is to explore the world,
also explore yourself.
To me, believing in the way you want to live
believing in yourself is very important.
The thing I value the most is Time.
"God knows the world doesn't need another band
but what a waste it would've been."
"Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successfull personality and duplicate it"
"If you're trying to achieve something, there will always be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."
"The only way of finding a solution is to fight back, to move, to run, and to control that pressure."
"Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are."
"Do what you love and try not to look at what other people occupy themselves with. Most people seem restless and bounce around too much to focus or even pay attention enough to themselves to figure out exactly what they really do love, as opposed to what the people that surround them are doing."
"I won't quit skateboarding until I am physically unable"
"I always feel like I was a freak when I was growing up and that there was something wrong with me because I couldn't fit anywhere" Madonna Ciccone
"When I'm tired, I tell myself I'm not tired. Because I haven't won the championship yet, that means I'm not working hard enough."
