Fuck fear and fuck feeling inadequate. There are two kinds of people out there - the people who are putting themselves out there and then there are the people who are commenting on what those people are doing. Who would you rather be? Even if you think Im full of total shit know that if I can have a career in music you can too.
AUTISM SPEAKS POSTED MY STORY!!!!
When they started their “In Our Own Words” blog, I decided to email them, talking about my Autism, my music, and how I believe Autism needs to be seen in a more positive light and accepted for what it is. I didn’t know that they would actually post it though. I am so happy right now that I could cry. This is amazing. :’)
You know at some point in your life you stop idolizing strangers and famous people,you don’t put posters up on your wall anymore of those people,and you replace those people with real life crush and romance.
When people hire me as a musician and then offer to give me “free exposure”.
If you repeatedly criticize someone for liking something you don’t, they won’t stop liking it. They’ll stop liking you.
When I get excited about something my friend has no interest in.
Have you ever had an imaginary friend? :D
The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.
Wanna make a monster? Take the parts of yourself that make you uncomfortable - your weaknesses, bad thoughts, vanities, and hungers - and pretend they’re across the room. It’s too ugly to be human. It’s too ugly to be you. Children are afraid of the dark because they have nothing real to work with. Adults are afraid of themselves.
Black Telephone (Richard Siken)
I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.
