Cheers scotty! I'm living in East London, near shoreditch. Have you ever been here? Expenses are super high. The rent for a three bed place is over $4k a month. Unfortunately, to live in a good part of london with a lot going on you have to pay the price.

Keep crushing man!

Thanks a lot mate, feels pretty great to book some winning sessions after what feels like forever. Yeah you make a good point tbh, and the vast majority of my volume will still be stars. Hadn't even really considered jumping back into 500z, but again, i don't see why not.

Yikes that is insane! Im currently living in a 4 bedroom place in Adelaide, roughly 600sq foot property, for $400 AUD a week split between 4 lol. I havn't been to Europe yet but my misso and myself have a 7 week trip booked for late july. We are staying with her family in Woodford Essex for a week before and after we venture off and travel around Europe. No idea what we are doing the week whilst we are there but I'd love to pick your brain on some hotspots of things we could do!

Just an update regarding the prop tomorrow. It's going ahead and i wanted to drop some details to the charities i'll be donating to.

You mat not wanna watch all the vids, but they give a taste as to what they offer. Great Ormond Street is a much larger charity and therefore their videos/flyers are more professional, however, I've seen first hand the unbelievable work that Centre70 do with the local community.

Great Ormond Street:




Centre70:



Kinda ****ting this bet now lmao.

Gunna be fun!
