2012: Nils Jansons

Hey Nils, how you’re doing these days? How does your normal day look like?
I’m very good, thanks. I have been home for a while because of studies and Christmas and just been skating a lot in two indoors we have. My normal day depends of what I have in plan. I go blade very often, 3 days a week I go to school, might go ski, live with my parents. Normal day could be like getting up at 12.00 nice break fast with coffee then off to skatepark with the homies, skate hard, then meet my girl, have another coffee and eat, then off to school, then back to my girls place, dinner, movie, sleep, get up and take my girl to school 8 in the morning and then just another day starts and who knows where i will end up.
 
Hows Riga in the wintertime?
Stupid cold and at the moment just not nice, it’s not even white snow now but it’s snow mixed with mud. But when it’s super snowy I like it, when just everything is white and u have warm glows, hat and a scarf and winter boots- then it’s really nice.
