For the first time in my life I feel alive. I have the same feeling when I wake up in the morning, that I used to have when I was little. I have energy and drive to take on the day.
My major change is BY FAR one of the best decisions of my life. This semester is going to be absolutely amazing. I don’t have that dwelling feeling of not pulling off decent grades and struggling to scrap by with a B or C. Or the feeling of hating all my classes. I look forward to school now.
I know I can achieve straight A’s this semester. However, I don’t want to get straight A’s for my parents. I don’t want to get straight A’s to show off to my friends. I want to get straight A’s for me.
Not to toot my own horn, but I know I’m good at art. My confidence in my artwork is definitely increasing since I practice everyday now. I was once the little boy who used to throw away his art for no one to see. Now I have a Facebook page dedicated to my art. I have done a 180. I also just ordered business cards, I'm working my own website and getting my name out there.
I even got the approval by a restaurant in Wilton Manors who wants to display my artwork!
This semester is all about me. I am focusing all of my attention on improving every aspect of myself. My friends are constantly telling me I have all this potential. I’m ready to ignite the spark within me.
I learned that society attempts to make people think a certain way. I had the impression that college was a Van Wilder movie 24/7. I used to follow the crowd. I entered college and did just that. I became a little clone. I thought you could ONLY be cool by drinking, joining a Frat and going to parties. Stupid, I know. And look where that got me. That taught me I hate drinking and Greek life was the fakest experience of my life.
I do my own thing now and I have never been happier. I am gay. I love God. I love art. I love my family and friends. I love to exercise. I love me.
So bring it on life...because I'm ready to kick ass.
