On that note, I won’t be blogging again from this account. I’ll be sure to follow everyone again once I do reboot. Maybe I’ll make a better effort to talk to you guys next time around. You seem pretty cool. I won’t be reblogging much of anything, so don’t feel obligated to follow back just because. But! I will try and use this site as more of a personal and artistic outlet. So, if that’s your bag, hopefully you stick around.
Slowly trying to change the dynamic of my tumblr into one that I can come back to, sometime down the line, and think “that’s where I was at exactly that moment”.
I’ll probably be making another one and scrapping this one, salvaging what I can stomach to sift through.
*In a sea of voices, it must be fairly easy to lose yours, especially if you aren’t using it. Good thing finding it isn’t so hard. You just have to want to.
Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.
Big test tomorrow. Can’t sleep. Feel like running again. Everytime I think I know, I don’t.

How can you be a drug addict in the new millennium? It's so retro.
Before I was a drug addict, I had so many different problems. Now I just have one. Drugs. It gave my life real focus.

eating on a budget: 44 healthy foods under 1$ per serving
Yes, it’s possible to eat healthy even when you’re broke. Sure fast food might be the easiest way to find food for cheap, but it’s certainly not the only one! As a broke 20 something this list is much appreciated, especially since it’s not always so easy to do the mental math when you’re squinting at a bag of rice in the grocery store.
All of the foods featured on this list can be part of a healthy diet, and all are less than a dollar per serving. Most are actually much less - notice how the vegan options are actually the cheapest here! Bonus: here are some tips on how to make healthy eating easier (prepare food in advance, cook once eat twice, etc)

I’ve never seen truer words scrawled on the bathroom wall of a jazz bar in New Orleans while traveling for work.
Or any bathroom wall, really. Hypothetically.
