la dolce vita.
Got a touch of the duunes or somethin?
You know I'm pretty sick of trying to convince some apparently mildly retaaded folks to move out of their safety nest. They are some of the most intelligent, creative dumbass motherfuckers I know, but yet they stick around some cramped scene like Minneapolis, claimin "oh we like it here." and, "oh, its on the come up." Guess what playa's, it's NEVER gonna be a mecca of opportunity like NYC or the stank armpit of the u.s.a, Los Assoles, I mean angeles, actually, no, I do mean assoles. Heres a little word to the wise. Everything you want out of your life is HERE. Just do it already. There is never going to be a perfect time, you are never going to feel completely safe leaving your tiny world, your never going to really have enough money to do it. But, that is part of the fun. The struggle, the pain of leaving the familiar to venture and the free fall into god knows what, are good for the soul. Yeah your gonna miss the hell out of some people and places, yeah your probably going to spend some nights crying, asking yourself what the hell your doing, you might even completely regret it, BUT, you will know you did it, YOU had the courage to follow a dream and expand your horizons. The sense of accomplishment is incomprehensible. Guess what happens then? You realize that you can adapt, grow, change and be a better person for it. I mean what is really the worst thing that could possibly happen? You hate it? You lose a bunch of dough? Hey, more then likely you didn't have any dough to begin with, cause you are working somewhere way beneath your skill and talent level, (Minnesota only offers so much folks, sorry, it is true, except it or not) or you hate it, then you go back home. Big freakin whoop. But at least you took a chance, you will always have that. When your shitting your depends in your old age, you can look back, smile and think to yourself, I was one bad ass motherfucker. I did that shit! I didn't let life pass me by as I stayed in the same place, no no! I took a risk, I have no regrets. As for the people this is aimed at, (you know who you are) I've known you all for long enough to know, without a doubt, you will regret it if you don't hightail it to a place that will light a fire under your ass and challenge the hell out of you. I only hang with soldjas, so start acting like one. Like yesterday. Seriously.
