Okay, fuck it. Time to write a proper about page.
The short version:
I’ve been writing in a notebook for almost 10 years and I’d like to see what happens if I can write a blog for that long.
The longer version where I talk about dreams:
I want it all; money, fast cars, diamond rings, gold chains and champagne. Shit, every damn thing. I want it all; houses, expenses, my own business, a truck, hmm, and a couple o’ Benz’s. I want it all; brand new socks and rawls, and I’m ballin everytime I stop and talk to y’all. ~ Warren G
I’ve been a dreamer since I can remember. I always thought the world had big plans for me. Problem was, I rarely did anything to take what I thought was mine. I’ve always been too scared. I didn’t think I had anything of value to offer the world. I was willing to work hard, but I didn’t know where to start. I couldn’t find a dream that resonated.
This blog is me taking action. It’s me turning 10 years of notebook daydreaming into a reality. It’s me discovering what I have to offer the world.
The dream isn’t as big as the quote above. The dream is to blog in your underwear. It’s to be able to work from anywhere in the world with only a laptop and internet connection at your disposal. It’s to create something — anything — using words.
Writing is the one creative outlet I’ve used consistently over the past 10 years, so it’s what I’m using to pursue a dream. I want to master it, even if it takes another 10 years — or way longer than that. I want to be able to express what’s in my head to other people.
I think most of us suffer from Failed Artist Syndrome (I’ll expand on that theory later), and I want to not suffer from that. I want to leave something behind when I die.
You won’t find any attempts at fiction or poetry here, but you will find a guy working to create his own story.
Maybe I’m a hopeless idealist with a stupid dream, but it’s also possible I’m on the brink of success. There’s only one way to find out.
When you’ve been sold the dream your whole life, you can either believe in yourself or get the fuck out.
