TBF: Life and Happiness

As we get older part of us always takes a look back at how far we've come. it's no secret that we all do it, now part of us knew what we wanted from it all when we were younger and part of us wanted impossible things that made no sense, but it's life and it's always one of the fonder parts of it. As we move foward we all want one thing: a defining reason for our lives. everyone wantsa the answers to it all, but answers aren'nt given they have to be earned...

So where are you in this point of you life, are you there? Are you in that ideal point where it all makes sense, where it's all clear, if you're not.. why? i'm not trying to insult anyone, i'm simply asking what do you want?

i could make a million reaasons on why you should or shouldn't go what makes you happy but really it's all you that's stopping you, we'll say it's the job, the routine, that we're too old or too young to go for it, but we're not. You can quit a job, you can break a routine, and who's really ever too old or too young, or have you forgotten that these are the words of a 21 year old...

As a 21 year old i'm many things to many people: i'm an employee at a law firm, i'm a son, i'm a kid, i'm an adult, i'm a brother both younger and older to someone, and i'm also a dreamer, a musician, an artist, a writer, a hopeless romantic and a philosopher and even an unlicensed conseulor to many people. Yet above all else i'm Brian Rodriguez, a guy from San Jose, Ca who gets up every morning and doesn't try to be all the aforementioned things, I don't go out and search for the people, places and situations, i just don't deny who i am, i choose to embrace what i have inside, and it leads me to write two columns, it leads me to creating an album, it leads me to draw and design, it leads me to be there for people who need a shoulder to cry on and it leads me to being just there. Everything that i am, both good and bad i am simply myself.

The point to all this: Don't deny who you are, don't think what can do is stupid, or pointless, as long as stay true to yourself you always find yourself where you're needed and where you can do what's in you heart..

And to all the naysayers in the world: FUCK 'EM


Until Next Time,
- Brian
