BERLIN BRAVES SUMMER DIARY: CHAPTER 1

« It’s about youth. It’s about resilience. It’s about pleasure. It’s about the city. It’s about escapism. It’s about nature. It’s about fucking and thinking and controlling and connecting and leading and following and running and lying and obsessing and failing and achieving and doubting and pushing and loving and hating and defending and drinking and sleeping and training and embracing. It’s about the shit I never learnt in school – the shit that gets me up in the morning. »
