"Humble me, give me a conflict, a hardship, let me break through this cement
They're gonna be so disappointed when they roll the credits in
I realized that my movie sucked and I was the only one that could edit it
Well the course, the chain of events, that would be the evidence, some say it's coincidence
I say I found something greater than myself and started accepting it
And I can see, feel, taste and smell again
And I'm the only one with the hammer to break this shell I'm in
It's gonna take me crackin' this mirror to finally be myself again
Met my potential a long time ago and I'm not stopping til I resemble him" - Macklemore.
There's a lot of things I've learned in my life. The main one is to not be afraid of expressing myself. I refuse to have any guilty pleasures. If I like something, even if it's shallow, I admit it because, hell, sometimes we need a little shallow. I have deep likes. Literature, writing, even most of my rap music that I listen to is deep. If I say I like reality TV, don't judge me on that. It's a double-edged sword, judging based on likes.
Another thing I've learned, through trial and error, is to be myself. It's hard because, not going to lie, I hate myself most days. I'm trying to become at peace with who I am.
My goal is in 5 years to be living in Seattle. Seattle is my home, where my heart is, and I want to get back up there.
