pursuing our dreams can be tough.
we are told we can accomplish anything but it ain’t easy,
i’ll font you that.
when our own parents and familydon’t believe in us,
we turn to our friends to stand with us.
they pull out their pompoms and cheer you on from the sidelines.
it’s that support that help us to keep going. what happens tho when a friend that you have supported in the past…
the iconic slasher from the 80s.
hopefully, you know who he is.
i’ll need a full watch party of his first movie.
as the story of freddy krueger goes,
he was a child killer from a small town in springwood, ohio.
it wasn’t until a gang of parents banned together and killed him.
he came back as a spirit to haunt teenagers in their dreams.
they had to stay awake in order not to enter his world.
as soon as you heard this chant…
…it was pretty much over for you. as much as it was just a movie to scare you into not sleeping, some of us have/have had a freddy in our own lives…
why does going after your dreams feel so… overwhelming? it makes you feel kinda insecure? almost like you want to give up? like why does that happen? why is it when we are confronted with what we want, or something we thought we knewwe wanted, (until we got all the logistics) that we buckle?
it can feel like throwingit in the air, runningfar away,
and nevercoming back. our careers look easy in our minds,
but we have no idea the hard work that goes into it. acting is hard work. modellingis hard work. rapping is hard work. writing is hard work. fashion is hard work. blogging is hard work. college is hard work. careers are hard work.
everything requires some kind of sacrifice. so i had to ask…
sometimes i wonder if its obvious when its time to move forward in life. like are there any signs? does god ring a bellthat only you hear? do you have to hear that you’re good enough before hand?
i see so many people getting stuck.
working these dead ends jobs until they can’t do it anymore.
watching their dreams pass them by with every punch in/punch out.
all they do is complain about their shit head boss and full of shit co workers. it scares me.
being that person scares the fuck out of me. can i be real with the foxhole tonight… Continue reading “One Day I’ll Look Back At This and Take A Shot”
“i’m trying to pop off in my career and no one is taking me seriously. people ignore me and i feel like maybe i should give up…”
i felt him.
its hard to want to be something and feel ignored.
i understoodwhat he was talking about.
sometimes i feel that way with this site,
but i figured i’d be realwith him
(and everyone else who is in the same boat)… Continue reading “The Journey of The Ignored”
i have these visions sometimes.
i could be listening to a certain song,
in the middle of meditating,
or the way the sun beams through my curtains.
its that moment when everything is completely still.
its when this unexplainable feelingwill wash over me.
it feels me feel so good. happy.
it can last from 5 minutes to 15.
in those moments is when i imagine what would make me most happiest. i often wonder if it’s a previewfor the future? a foreshadow of whats to come in my life? well last night… Continue reading “I Can’t Wait Until Tomorrow Cause My Visions Get Better Every Day”
