Once upon a time, I was happy.
And then, I forgot what it felt like.
…Is almost like finding you’re own personal self-help group. Everything everyone posts about your MB, you’re just like “Yeahhhh… That’s totally me. It’s like Zodiac signs, but based on scientific research instead of the stars
My number is 6.
1: My Zodiac Sign is Leo, and it’s clearly evident. I usually take zodiac identification with a grain of salt (it’s like a existential Myers-Briggs), but when it comes to Leos, it’s me to down to a science. Dignified, Loyal, Talented, Ambitious, and Almost Excessive Love of Hair.
2: So far, I have 9 nieces and nephews, one more than the total amount of siblings I have (including myself). One of which, was actually born two days ago (11-12-13. Congrats to my sister, Kamilah)
3: I am hardcore ADD. Made education as a child extremely difficult. I was always opposed to taking regular medications, for the fear that I’d get hooked on it, but I know realize as a result of being ADD, I could never become addicted to it, because half the time, the struggles lies in just remembering where you put the bottle.
4: The best movie I’ve seen on Netflix so far is Kumaré. If you haven’t seen it, it’s an extremely insightful documentary regarding spirituality. When you get some free time check it out.
5: Three quotes comprise my personal mantra:
- “The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.” - Charles Du Bois
- “All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.” - T.E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia)
- “Comfort Kills Ambition” - I don’t even remember. Just has stuck with me.
6: I used to be a relatively fat kid back in late elementary/middle school, and got picked on a lot as a result. Despite the fact of growing up and thinning out a bit, I still carry a lot of those scars with me. Hence why this coming year, I’ll be assisting my friend Jake Ramirezwith his documentary Breaking the Cycle, about one man taking a stand to prove that no matter how much you weigh, it’s never too late to make a difference in your life, or the lives of others.
