You know when people post up those generic pictures of the things that they have all aligned up in some sort of mathematical grid order or nicely laid out in organized randomness? I used to roll my eyes at that, but at the same time, it’s cool to show off sometimes what inspires you or what drives you to wanting to be a better person in life, the hustler’s ambition (thank you 50) that you possess to keep you going. We all have our little things that get us along, but I’ll share a couple with you guys, just because…it’s all good in the hood.
I’m a stranger to educational recognition. As you can see here, the last major awards I won was when I was in the 6th Grade. French & Dramatic Arts (explains a lot). Since then, it’s like I’ve been a stranger to being first. Trying hard, but always coming up short, like Peyton Manning before 2006: Great start, bad finishes. My biggest defeat came in Grade 11, when I lost the TV award to my rival (THEE. AB. SOL. UTE. WORST. FEELING. EVER), but it only allowed me to be humble, and to know that I have a lot of work to do to get to the top. I’d rather struggle now, and succeed later on.
Music has a huge influence on my life as well as others I’m sure, but there were times when I just felt like I didn’t have it in me to go on with life (true story), and music has really helped me get through a lot. Whether it was writing or reading while listening to music, it has definitely played a vital role in shaping me as a person. Not only because of the vast selection that I listen to, but just the messages behind most, and it allows my imagination to run freely in order for me to become more creative
Damn, I take some good pictures (and yes, I’m aware they’re on my bed. Fight me)
Social Networking? Man, listen. It’s the Devil. It can be GREAT, and it can be TERRIBLE, but at the same time, the reason why it’s a source of inspiration is because of the ENDLESS amount of people who I can meet and essentially get my word out, my product, promote & educate a lot of people. I’m not saying that I’m a teacher, but I know that I can help someone SOMEWHERE in this world. I love talking to people, meeting new people, knowing what are their interests are, exchanging opinions, and essentially just having fun, because no one has enough of it. Yes, I can be ignorant, arrogant, rude, disrespectful in some way, but I’m the same on and off the keyboard, but I mean well. I’m in the phase of my young & stupid times, but I still know when to draw a line. People take a lot of things serious on the internet, because there truly is no greater power than words. At all. Period. But, you just gotta lighten up, because at the end of it all, what is it worth to get mad? Not a DAMNED THING!
The rings now, if you know me you’ll know that there’s a ring that i always keep on, that’s my Power Ring, but the rings shown here all have their own significant meaning, and value to me. They’re like what people get tattoos for: self-expression, but just mine aren’t permanently etched on my body to show off (no judgement, I’m just saying). They fuel my desires to achieve success, simply based on what they represent. Each one has a story (I’ll save that for another post on another day).
The iPod & Beats By Dre headphones just emphasize my lust for music in my life. It’s always around me, there’s always a beat playing, and always a melody & lyrics passing through my ears for a good majority of the day.
This is a personal blog, so of course at times I’m going to get a bit personal. Just a deeper thought into the mind of me, but for now,
That’s My Word & It STiXX
