wow. this has me teary eyed.
Ive been on a roller coaster of emotions. Im up on a high and stoked for where im at in life… then crying into my pillow whining about my inability to walk and feeling pressure and fear of failure.
this is so fucking true.
one of my heros.. Jhonen Vasquez… (who now raids the undead with me on diablo, ps. sorry had to fangirl there for a minute ) was judged on his ideas, the way he looked, the fact he didnt fit into a perfect mold of the average american teen ager… he could have whined about it… no, he made good art. he made Johnny the Homicidal Maniac.
Adam Levine. His band went nowhere (karas flowers, I used to watch them play for 10 people) and went through a terrible break up…what did he make instead ? Maroon 5 and wrote songs about JAne.
you better fucking believe that I am locked in my dungeon of a room, everyday, from morning till the wee hours of the morning, conjuring up the best work I can do, in preparation for whats next in my life. and you better fucking believe that I am going to bring it harder than I ever have.
If you thought a lil broken leg would hold me back, oh fuck. you are so wrong.
TO ALL THE KIDS THAT WRITE TO ME EVERYDAY! Im here for you, of course, no one can give you better advice than someone who has undoubtedly been through what you are going through… but seriously, read this shit. stop bitching. and do something. make something. create something. make yourself worth something.
we all need to bitch sometimes tho :)
