• I stopped giving a fuck.
  • No, really. The two forces that are “I really wanna help people” and “I want to make a living out of this” clash really badly to the point it’s hypocritical.
  • Yet, I’ve learnt that any real artist and entrepreneur would recognize that finding the balance between the two is how you actually can succeed as both artist and entrepreneur.
  • Yet, there’re so many bullshitters out there who claim they’re not in it for the money or just love helping people as if they’re the pope.
  • Typical lists and bullet points can be annoying and insincere…

So last week I went for a job interview for a position at a nightclub that’s going to be opening here soon.

It went pretty well I must say. The interviewers seemed to like me and they even ended it with, “We’ll probably hire you.”

That’s dope of course! I am stoked and excited as I wait for the confirmation.

I started texting my friend about it, someone who was actually my manager back when I was working part-time at another club.

He was encouraging and supportive somewhat, but somehow, the conversation veered towards well, typical bullshit I hear about…

But for some, their families ain’t so great. Maybe their parents were abusive assholes or they weren’t even around.

For some, friends are the family instead.

Because sometimes, family can’t be friends. It doesn’t have that friendship factor.

You can’t talk shit.

You can’t share your sexual fantasies and stuff.

You can’t divulge your dirty secrets.

You can’t have that listening ear who’s of the same age.

Some family stay forever. Some don’t.
