The coolest people you know?

Today I discovered this girl Simone Giertz (dubbed herself the queen of shitty robot nation) on youtube and she absolutely fascinated me. The vibe I get from her is just coolness, she is radiating this absolutely wonderful, inspiring energy of “I’m fucking alive”. She is constantly workin on projects (building shitty robots (and other stuff)), traveling (like she lived in Sweden (I think) and  America and China (and ended being on a sitcom) and just goes around the world doing just doing her).

Now it’s the mindset of “I’m just gonna do this thing and immerse myself completely in it” “Okayy that was cool, now I have a different cool idea so I’ll just immerse myself into this new project or this new person or this new whatever”. That’s something I thrive to do with my life. Being able to just go for something. I don’t know who said it first but be the coolest version of yourself that you can be and she embodies that idea for me. I spend the rest of this evening feeling inspired as hell, working on a drawing, just feeling good about creating.

Creating was another huge part of this, this girl just builds stuff. I don’t know the first thing about electronics or how to put pieces into each other and never has the idea really struck a chord with me like this but the way she does it just completely knocked me out of my chair: Concept in mind —> Thing. It doens’t have to be good, it just what she does. I want to be a do-er and since doers inspire doing I want to ask you guys: 

Who have you guys discovered that just inspires you to do? And i\I’m not talking about some random cool artist or some random traveler, I’m talking about some next level cool ass fucking people that just.. just have this thing y’know? Preferably people with a large internet presence but anyone who did anything that just makes you go “damn” is absolutely worth noting. I’m looking to be inspired, and I’d be forever grateful if you could help me out in my quest.
