There shouldn’t just be a day where you give thanks and be thankful for everyone right? I guess it serves as a reminder… but things like this I feel like you should always be thankful. Thankful for how you go to where you are, thankful for your parents and friends and all the support you get, thankful that you’re not in the same or similar conditions as other people in the other countries and states.
But yeah should always be thankful regardless haha. :D Just keep doing what you do and just dont take things for granted. And do things for them. Heh :D If you’re really thankful of them, then you’d do the same and return the favor right? or even yet, instead of just returning the favor to them, do the same to others. It won’t hurt to help others.
Anyways Happy Thanksgiving Yall. Hope everyone is enjoying their time with fam and eating lots!
I haven’t really updated on tumblr.. but yeah. Lots of things have been happening.
Today I actually have time to myself. i can actually do my OWN things for once. I got to clean the apartment, the bathroom, etc. I can sit down and clean my desk… i couldn’t use my desk cuz there’s no chairs… so sad. My chairs i brought from home all broke ugh. I actually have time to sit down and listen to music, think, reminisce, and even write on tumblr haha. It’s a nice feeling.
but yeah these past few months.. has been interesting. Lots of changes. For my dance/b-boy side, been growing alot and been getting better (I think, but not enough! >:D) I met lots of influential people and my perspective of dance and hip-hop culture has definitely changed.
As for my other fields, my head kinda hurts right now… but its been good. Going to hopefully successfully change my major for CS. My love life is going fairly well… After watching Don Jon it defintely made me think about me and my relationship haha.
I forgot what i was gonna write ugh. Maybe later tonight. Peace.
Don’t stop. Don’t give up. Keep trying. Change. Not just for you or yourself, for everyone else and the better. Make the sacrifices, take those extra steps. You’ve gotten this far; don’t let any obstacles stop you. You can achieve whatever you believe yourself can achieve. If you don’t believe in yourself and think you can do it, then you won’t get anywhere. Keep your head up. Don’t settle for satisfaction; aim to achieve the impossible. Don’t let setbacks keep you down; get back up, and start at it again. It’s never too late to say “I’m ready” than to say “I give up” right? Don’t set excuses for yourself not to grow and learn, but instead set reasons why you’d want to be better to not only educate yourself, but to help and educate others. Be ready.
Nothing can be more happy and exciting than seeing a roomful of people having fun and sharing their love. Happy to be part of All UCI again. So many familiar faces, laughters, and just joyful fun. I remembered why I stuck with this passion and culture and I still do now because of the same reason.
Even though the past few days were kinda rough on me; going through so many difficult roads, but honestly I’m thankful for them because if it wasn’t for these obstacles, I have no idea where i’d be now. The courage and strength helped me gather myself and pull through.
I still am confused on what to do… how to be a better person.
The decisions, the thoughts to choose from, the ideas to believe in, and the sacrifices to make. How do you know which one is better? You don’t really, because no matter what decision you choose, you’ll still be able to learn from whatever path you chooose.
Nonetheless, I was happy to see so many people in one room; though they may not be on the same mentality and mindset of their ideas and passion for the love of hip hop culture, but what was most important was that they were there to experience the sharing of those who are part of this movement. Experience is a thing that no one can share the same with one other person.
To be able to dance to music in front of an audience, displaying your emotion and interpretation to the music, is an art. And showing your art to others not only intrigues but hopefully inspires them to also express themselves in some way. Freestyle.
People are scared in a sense, to freestyle. This, I understand haha because I still am sometimes scared to freestyle, but hay, there’s a reason why it’s called freestyle because it’s your freedom to have your own style.
I never got to finish this post :\ well im back here again.
Im not gonna re-read what i wrote because that time i felt one way and right now i feel another and for me, writing this i think should only write how you feel at the momment because you’ll never feel the same any other given time.
Anyways, lastly, Ill say this before posting it. Stay true to yourself. Be whoever you want to be. Don’t be easily infleunced by others. If you truly believe in what others say, then do so but yo forreals stay true to yourself. Don’t lose sight of what you want and who you are. Always give yourself possibilities and chances to grow because no matter what you do, whatever circumstances you’re in, you’ll learn no matter what.
Aite. Time to post. yay.
This was what brought me back to realize what I should be doing. The feelings, music, groove, dance, etc. How was your day?
So nostalgic. haha good times. can’t wait for this year to come.
Just read Arthur’s post about Anthony Lee and Pat Cruz’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”. It got me interested so I looked up the lyrics to the song. Damn. Haha.
Shit is true though. The meesage we portray as artists; it’s truly contradictory. Even looking through the video comments out there they don’t see it. Then again, how do people see it?
Analyzing and understanding the meaning of one’s actions and words isn’t something easy to do. But as artists, one should know right? haha. Oh gee.
Meaning and purpose and completely separate things. Up to you whether or not you want to know and what to do with them.
What is true expectations and reality? The intent is there, but is that realistic and understanding? What do you take for an understanding?
