If you could do anything in life what would it be? 

If I could do anything in my life? Wow I don’t know man. I’m not sure if I could give you the right answer off the top of my head right now. A few people have asked that question lately, being it’s such a common question and you could be really stern about that one. But really I just want to be happy man. I just want to live my life doing what I love and not getting to my deathbed and thinking argh! I should have done that or why didn’t I do this. If I think of something I want to do, I try my hardest to go and do it. Yeah I had my life flash before my eyes once and I was really close to dying that was a pretty cool experience, well it wasn’t cool but it taught me a lot. Right before I thought I was about to die, you know how they say your life flashes right before your eyes, and like it kind of did. I pictured my family. Dad, Mum and Brody (my Brother) standing there with their arms around each other and that vision flashed in and out which was followed by an overwhelming sense of happiness. That made me feel like I hadn’t really missed out on anything yet and I think that’s because I do try and enjoy this life as much as I can and being so close to dying and experiencing that was cool, it kind of showed me that I was on a pretty good path with my life.
