I am not the same person from 4 years ago.

by The Struggle Is A Choice

It always bothers me when someone thinks that college is a NEED. I am blessed with a family who has invested in my career (well the start of it). In particular my mother who has consistently supported my dreams- fantasy world or not, she has always encouraged me to shine bright. I wonder though, what does my degree mean other than being formally educated. I can barely hold a conversation so really how does it measure my intelligence if I do not like to share what is in my head? Has it made me any smarter, other than learning survival miles away from anyone who truly loves and cares about me?  

I met a beautiful young woman once, she will remain nameless until she gives me permission to post her images on my site. Her voice, her steeze, her strong attitude (in the best way), her leisurely activities, reminded me of someone I used to know. The girl I used to know cared about her appearance, the local farmer with the fattest bag of trees, the liquor store who would serve her even though she was only 17, creating the best memories and times with a select few, school yard cyphs and raps with the gangsters hahahaha .

Time flies. Cherish every moment. Tomorrow might not come.
