Champions aren’t made in the gym

“Champions aren’t made in gyms.

Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision.

They have to have the skill, and the will.

But the will must be stronger than the skill.”

This quote stand on a  Muhammad Ali’s poster beside my bed, is the first thing that i read in the morning.

The morning and everything that happen before school is one of my moment of true distraction, while i prepare myself to be productive.

My alarm clock – ringing bells – 7am every morning, I get up, breakfast or shower first – I like to change the sequences.

For breakfast I like to change every few days, from a chocolate cake to a full English, from salmon to porridge.

I get dressed and I’m out.

I Walk to my Vespa or to The underground, depends.

Lately I’m enjoying the underground  as i have the chance to see and hear different people, and how they interact – i know, is awkward.

After my shower I stop to listen to music, i want to be immersed in the noise of the underground and i love how This interact with my thoughts.

I arrive at school, my meal in The fridge, notepad and computer on the desk,

third coffe, headphones on…


I can’t really tell how I spend the day, I just know that I can’t wake up till the next morning, is like entering a beautiful trance status.

Is exhausting but I’ve never done something so satisfying.
