Falling’s Easy

The other day, my father took me on a bike ride through some trails by our neighborhood. He goes bike riding rather often and I don’t at all so I was definitely expecting a challenge. But, to my surprise, when we started, it was all downhill. As we kept going, the downhill continued, some bits… Continue reading Falling’s Easy

Chasing Dreams like I’m on Novocaine

Once upon a time, there was a boy who dreamt he'd one day have the world. He imagined he'd grow larger than life and have the world at his feet. He'd venture new and old lands, reach out and touch billions of people, see his name in lights, and maybe even wield the power to… Continue reading Chasing Dreams like I’m on Novocaine

I’m Coming Home//Learning to Swim

I've always chosen to be alone. In a previous post I wrote called, “Don’t you get lonely?”, I touched up on why I'm such a private and keeps-to-himself type of guy. When I was 18, my family moved to California due to my dad's work. I chose to stay by myself in a place I hated at… Continue reading I’m Coming Home//Learning to Swim

The Little Things

I've always believed that it's the little things that make the big moments in life. In the last month and a half, that belief for me has only proved to be more true than ever. Almost 2 months ago, I quit my job to focus on art (my dreams) full-time. I then came home to… Continue reading The Little Things

Why I’ve Chosen to Restart my Whole Life

I don't quite know how to start this post. so many different routes to take, but I feel like this (whatever I'm doing) isn't the right way. I could start by talking about happiness and how we all have our different takes on the enigmatic term... I could talk about how life's too short to… Continue reading Why I’ve Chosen to Restart my Whole Life

Poem: How to Fly

This place, this place This place of pain This place where you must lose to gain In order to love you must first hate If you want to rise you must first fall If you want to be great you have to start small If you want to laugh you must let yourself cry Aching… Continue reading Poem: How to Fly

Sick of people doubting me

But it’s fine. Because every time I hear doubt, it only puts fuel to the flame. It only pushes me harder. Only pushes me harder to prove them wrong. Stop telling me to play it safe. Stop lecturing me about putting all my eggs in one basket, and stop telling me that my dream is… Continue reading Sick of people doubting me

Poem: A Thunderous Hunger

This hunger This hunger, it is unlike any other In my stomach I feel the rumble storming in, like a rolling thunder Through the trees like an icy breeze crashing down, like a tsunami You hear the drumming, and you hear the trumpets The dreams are calling like a summons With a hunger matching starvation… Continue reading Poem: A Thunderous Hunger

I think I just moved back to TN

It’s amazing how quickly your whole life can change, isn’t it? One minute you have a perfect idea of how everything is going to play out... the next, something as gentle as a breeze comes along and changes the direction of everything. So, the family reunion that brought me to Knoxville went well. Really well.… Continue reading I think I just moved back to TN

I Quit my Job to be a Full-time Dreamer

How do you make your dreams come true? Is there some secret formula that's been written and hidden in a safe in Mr. Krabs' office? I certainly hope there isn't. I'd be pretty pissed. Since I was a teenager, I've been pursuing my dreams, and for the last six years, I've been pursuing them in… Continue reading I Quit my Job to be a Full-time Dreamer
