But the way I see it is that very few people on the planet have the opportunity to even follow their dreams at all.  Most people live in poverty, or in communities where the repercussions for behaving how they want are a lot worse than just people talking shit.  If doing what you want is an option for you, you should do it, because your one of the few lucky people who can.  And even if you fail, you will be in a better position than if you’d never tried.  The competition probably isn’t that crazy.  Most people are too scared to even try.  Bad things can happen, but every horrible thing that has ever happened to me has added integrity to my art and improved my understanding of the human race.  

I don’t see the point of living if you’re aren't doing the thing you love.  Sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to do obviously, but if it’s for your family, or for your passion, then it’s worth it.  You are never making a bad decision if it is the decision that makes you happy, so if not following your dreams gets you down, then you should probably try to find a way to make it work.

The weekend I spent with her. It  snowed in London and we went to see Blue Velvet (1986) Saturday and Wild at Heart (1990) Sunday at the NFT. I had the time of my life.


Maybe we think the same things at the same time.

Mrs. Draper or, I mean, the actress that plays her


Yesterday I met a girl at work and told her to check out my blog.
She was buying presents for her dad. She was really cool and she cursed alot.
I wrote my blog down on a scrap of paper, wondering will she loose the piece of paper.
If she see's this.
Add me on Facebook.

"We used to kiss all night..."

I've been throwing up for two days.
I spent the whole day in bed watching crappy sitcoms.
I couldn't sleep. I then got a fever I was shivering and the sweating seconds later
I heard this song this morning and it made me feel semi alive
