Don’t Just Sit There! Start FINDING BALANCE

Society has a way of thinking what success truly is.

Is is exotic women, foreign cars, NFTS, or an absurd amount of crypto? Well, I would think I am set for life if I have all of those things.

But as of lately, you need balance.

Balance between getting drunk off your ass every weekend to mingle with women you will never see again to finding stocks that will keep financially sane in your office chair.

All I ever want to do is work my ass off since that is the quota for everyone in their early 20s, “ work hard now, enjoy later”. Sounds corny & cringe to an extent but everyone I see I don’t want to end up like has me thinking, I better start working like someone has put a bounty on my head.

Contrary to the fact, that working all the hard time seems very tiring because you just want a break from the world and don’t want to think about anything else.

I’ve been stuck in a mindset where I can’t relax because I am not where I am not in life but balance is what holds the mold together.

You can’t have a PB&J sandwich without one of the other. They have to go together or simply it won’t be the same.

I don’t have it all figured out but finding it will help me from falling into the ocean.

If you understood that metaphor, kudos to you.

The Internet Divided

The internet is constantly divided by two groups of people.

You see this people in your everyday life 24/7. It can be in the library, school, work, or at a sporting event.

We are constantly producing information by our smartphones or creating content and information.

As you would call them, consumers & producers.

Mindlessly scrolling on the internet, watching content produced by other people would make us consumers. Consuming various forms of media in our everyday life. You’re consuming media without even realizing it.

Did you read that right?

You’re consuming media without even realizing it. A stop sign, street lights, billboards, traffic signals, a TV, whatever it might be, you’re consuming.

Now, I am not saying it’s a bad thing to be a consumer, I am saying that we need to create more than we produce.

The internet rewards content creators.

You see content creators all the time getting rewarded for all their hard work & it’s shown.

The world never stops for content creators and maybe I see why people call me crazy constantly. Creating and writing stuff out of thin air.

No matter what, this is my crack like the 80s. Constantly wanting more and more. Creative roles flow through my veins and my bloodstream.

I will create till the wheels fall off. You can scroll and find new dress ideas on Pinterest while you’re sitting here and reading this post.

You see what I just did there? Of course you did, it’s the point of the whole post.

See you on the creator side people.

The College Life

The College life.

A lifestyle I never thought I would experience.

Yet, I am here now.

Then, it has been a thrilling adventure.

Even thought, it might not be what I want, I want connections.

So, I am going to make the best of any situation.

Now, provide life lessons for all.

So, I can use them in the real world.

The College Life

Grades aren’t everything we make them out to be.

It won’t translate to the real world.

Now, do what the sane person would do.

Even though, people don’t listen.

Learn high value skills that are of importance.

Coding, web design, Google Ads, etc.

The College Life Experience

The college life is different for everyone.

See, college has opened my eyes to know it’s not really needed.

But, everyone’s opinion is different.

For example, I love self-learning and building.

Now, we must create something that will last.

College won’t do that for you.

Unless, you’re in a certain major for it.

So, do what you think is right.

Don’t listen to outside forces on a controversial subject.

Listen to the gut feeling.

Now, I am not saying to ignore.

But, you need to do what’s best for you in life.

That’s simply how it works.

Bend the rules a little.

Unless, you want to live a life you setttled for.

Create the environment and the life you want.

College may or may not do that for you.

So, you can get drunk now or do the dirty work.

Living the life you want was never easy.

Nothing good ever comes easy at all.

Now, it may suck but its worth the pain and sacrifice.

Although, everyone is different.

That’s what makes college so diverse for everyone.

I have to find my own path and do what’s best for me.

Now, I have a future to create.
