There’s a line between people pressuring you into doing something against your morals and pressuring you into doing something you’re scared or would never do without a push. Learn the difference and watch how you can change while still holding onto your beliefs
Don’t go to college in Montana because the fire alarm will go off while you’re showering and it will be -20 degrees out at night with two feet of snow and you will want to die

Growing up as a mixed kid I would often find myself trying to “pick a side”. Never quite fitting in on either I had to learn to exist as something other than a biracial kid stuck in the middle. From rocking FUBU gear that was terribly oversized to putting shit in my hair to make it “more manageable”- 30 years in and I think I get it. I’m not one or the other. I AM both and it isn’t a burden…it is an identity. Learn to love that identity whatever it may be as long as it is YOUR identity. Representation is necessary and empowering, therefore, I’d like to shout out to all my beautiful boys and girls searching for that gloriously particular identity. You ain’t the only one 🙏🏾
The drain in the shower needs to be cleaned AGAIN; I mean, how is it even possible? If I lost that much hair I’d be bald ages ago. And not to mention how things tend do clutter up in general; and WHEN will they change that blinking street light outside my living room window, someone should have reported that by now – and with the holidays coming up… I think I’ll be stuck with my own personal strobe light. Unless I break it, yes! Throw a rock at it or something… But it seem like such hard work; and besides, it is getting a tad cold. And I am 40 years old. I am getting to old for that shit. And no kids in the neighborhood that I could bribe into doing the deed – just as well. No money. What to do, what to do… The eternal question of the egotistical mind: how to get what I want without raising a finger to get it.
I thought I’d have gotten further than this by now. I wasn’t really expecting a family, I wasn’t even expecting a dog. As far as those life goals go: success. But I did expect a little bit of direction in life. As it is now I got nothing. No fixed income, no career – which is not surprising since I don’t know what I want to do with my life – no significant other. I have realised recently that I only want people that don’t want me. And it is most likely a safe guard. Keeps the complications to a minimum and the internet porn sites well visited. But not as much as could be imagined. I don’t really know how to take my photography further. Should I give this a serious go? That would mean to learn lights, get a studio – or at least rent space at one – and that seem so very grown up. Should I go the other way and give everything up? Just work as a madman for two years, pay off whatever debts I got and just… leave. Travel. See the world before it is to late. Live somewhere else. Learn languages. There are places in Norway, far above the arctic circle, where you can make good money gutting fish. I could do that. I know knifes. Should I learn Chinese and start working with China? Should I move to Berlin and try to become an artist.
Should I get myself into shape; get a haircut and a job and get on the slow train towards death?
Todays picture is another selfie. A self portrait without the self. We leave impressions; imprints on the people we meet in life. With some we live large, with others small and with the vast majority we leave a brief whiff of an impression. We must realise that we are nothing; that what we do have no meaning – no meaning to anyone but ourselves. What has relevance is the impression we leave, their interpretation of us. If that impression is true or false based on our idea of ourself is irrelevant. Like a photo or any work of art we are left open to interpretation and the truth is always in the eyes of the beholder.
The Angry Birds Movie is so fucking important. Angry Birds is serious shit. I don’t want to see anyone on my Dash talking shit about it. Capisce? It touched on themes of war, genocide, xenophobia, the economy, infrastructure, the environment, culture, ethics, speciesism, love, hate, death, rebirth. Before hating on it, why don’t you fucking watch it? Like they fit so much deep shit into that little movie and I came out of the theater a better person, like more worldly and cognizant, and yes, disclaimer, I did exit the theater in handcuffs, okay, because, yes, I was primarily there to masturbate in a crowded theater because that’s the only way I can get my rocks off now. But I actually watched the film while fondling myself and I learned so fucking much and it’s not just a “kid’s” film. It spoke truth to power. So don’t you DARE fucking talk shit about it if you haven’t even experienced it yet.
