Stuff that makes me happy.

We are not SUPPOSED to do anything. Society has somehow conditioned us into these mindless husks. Let me explain what our culture says is proper for and the right way to live a good life. We go to school, study hard, get into a great college, study even harder, get hired on at a large company with great benefits, start our march up the corporate ladder, meet a mate, buy a house, apply for credit cards, buy a car, buy furniture, maintain good credit, have children, work harder, bla bla bla retire at 65. This defines success. But you know what? When I meet most of these people, they aren’t happy. I say most, not all. To those who are happy with this path, all power to you. I truly mean that. Bust to those that didn’t think this way, they wanted to travel the world. They wanted to play in a band or fly to the moon. And someone told them they couldn’t. So they didn’t. That’s not fucking success. To be true to yourself is success. To live a life of passion is success. The world could be an even more magnificent place if we all lived from our passionate hearts. At least, that’s what I believe.
