Back to School

I have decided that I will be going back to uni to finish off my BA and earn a useless degree 2018 is the year I could easily set up a 2017 start and might do. However, in understanding, myself and how taxing the year back is going to be I’m going to have to build a fortitude to the fuckery. As well as the fact I would like a fully packed portfolio of work that I have delivered from the experience I gathered in the three years out of university I need to gather funds, From multiple sources wherever they may be they need to come in hoards.

As someone who will be going as a mature student in the hopes of finishing early, I have to bolster my platform to the standard of a professional. Hoping my quality will shine over these young whipper snappers that will be young hungry and after my neck in terms of wanting to prove themselves. Being that guy is key if not it just makes my stay a little bit more taxing. Sorry to be weird but I’m going to be that old guy in class that should have finished years ago. Well, it is not weird, it’s the darn truth but God help me if I don’t punch these guys in the mouth with my technical ability.

Finishing the projects I have set for myself is key! As an art student most would not understand that pressure till you’re in the thick of it. but doing professional standard projects from start to completion is a hard thing to do for those that haven’t been involved in a high-pressure setting.

This is where I say my blog will be dedicated to showing off the arts in all forms. The subject matter along with my ability to articulate is something I will like to have grown hand in hand. Just to keep everything blessed and not lose anything I’ve got. I hope you wish me luck in my endeavor to get more involved with my people and pray for someone who never prays for themselves.

 

Until the next blog, this has been

Whatever Moves Your Dial

Not Your Typical

NYT: Lord of Light, Kibou (hope)

Hope I’ve got a lot of it, it’s been apart of my life since the beginning stemming from religion to evolve to my genuine belief in humanity. I’ve never really lost it but there is a thing I do now, I’ve been told I I must defend it at all cost and have no intention of giving it up.

The moment I realized I had something was first with a great friend Zion when I spoke he listened. Attentively at that, I’ve never had someone do that before, he told me it was because I believed in something much more than what he’s seen. The next time was with another great man Jay he said to defend it and never lose it. (Honorary mention to Matt Iqra and Amina who all believed in me before I believed in myself).

This is where the problem started, the thing about defending something you have no idea that you have is, the plain and simple fact you have no idea what you are defending. That is right I do not know what I “have” but people on numerous occasions said it’s “something” and to this day I have no idea what they are talking about, I’ve got something, it’s there I don’t see it.

I will explain to you what I believe and if there is something, so rightly so. If there isn’t then smoke has been blown way up my a(double sticks) into the dark reaches of my soul . I believe there is something more to our generation, like most I see the follys but ignore them all the more because we’re nearing a pivotal point most have not seen the self realisation of ones self day by day I witness people understanding they are better than they could be.

I love to listen to people’s dreams goals and aspirations because I genuinely believe they can reach them the climate is so open and our generation is so rich in fruitful ideas I’ve seen us get closer to a creative state far from warring and closer to togetherness. ( and I’m not talking about this “love is the answer” thing people do.) I understand there are people that compete for spots and people that create their own let’s just say the amount of people creating there own is at 21% and those competing is at 79% to make my view the most conservative as possible. What I’m saying is we are better, we can do more and be more than those before us. More of us are here to be the leaders that we need to be than follow the path that is laid out for us pure and simple.

As a minor take for my view on things, I’m a better orator than an author of this ideal but I understand this is what you call hope. This type of hope I’m realising is rare and time and time again people have tried to take it from me, and time and time again I’ve had to defend it to the point that now I feel like never uttering a word from the Spark of hope and those two men I have aforementioned have told me I’ve changed. The reason is simple I’m not trying to lose what I may or may not have because it might help someone sometime in someplace that might need it because I have but I see more reason every day to believe in people than not. And that is all I will say on that matter. Come at me stealers of Dreams and sniffers of hope!

Full Year, New Me!

This Year has been something else. I tell you now everything I have done this year I never expected would happen for me, but then when I look back on my life I realize I deserved each and every bit of it.

Until the last quarter of the year, I was 23 so I guess you could say my 23  year was the best year ever. Reflecting on all the good work I did choices I made and how I have decided to live all was done on purpose. I can definitely say I have been living my life on purpose since I turned 23, everything from being a marketing guru to writing my first script and now this was all done on purpose.

Waking up every day full of vigor and excitement for the day to come from the 1st of January is a feeling past my threshold of expression in words, I look back and I am speechless at my true blue take on life.

Living in the way no one could stop me or even break my resolve on me knowing exactly what I wanted to do. It can be perceived as cockiness to some or really just self-esteem in its purest form. There have been times in my life where you could say I woke up on accident and the goals I had weren’t strong enough to pull me forward. Truly though since exiting University, I have had the best of times living life like I want to, learning more and faster than before gathering the knowledge interpreting it and executing it on-pointe revs me up so much for the year to come.

To marry doing what you want and getting back what you should have been a euphoric experience that I wish to not stop. Not everything was Sunny and I do not think it will get easier but the mentality that I brought to the table when it came to my challenges have been respectful and properly conducive to how I feel any 20SMTHNG should live.

I need for all my life to bring this thought process forward, it feels the start of something superb. Where I go after what I want with all the vigor in the world! It has been a great year, and the sequel will be even better. My life has been well and truly a movie time to make 2017 submit and give it all I’ve got.

This has been your Not So Typical,
