I Stand Alone

Jay

25 & residing in NYC. Student of life.
Infatuated with cars, good reads, and the pursuit of knowledge.

To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are
and what you stand for, where you want to
go and why you want to get there. ~Kofi Annan

Today I turned 26. It’s a weird thing getting older and I just don’t know how to feel about it.

People I went to school with are married and have kids and it’s like wtf am I doing with my life? Granted I don’t want kids anytime soon, nor am I in a huge rush to get married either but, I just wanted to be more together at this point in my life. Whatever that means.

I’ve made it another year and I have solid people around me, and I’m happy for that. I feel good about life and the future. Best I’ve felt about it in a while honestly. So that’s what matters right?

Either way, 26 down many more to go hopefully.

Nothing to see here. I forgot certain people call this child abuse now. 

"'Youth culture, in general, is not always decipherable to those outside of the inner circle,' Alvarez responded. 'In many ways, our dress and our vocabulary and our vernacular becomes powerful because [outsiders] can't understand it.'"

The Price Of Admission 

"The world isn’t being destroyed by democrats or republicans, red or blue, liberal or conservative, religious or atheist — the world is being destroyed by one side believing the other side is destroying the world. The world is being hurt and damaged by one group of people believing they’re truly better people than the others who think differently. The world officially ends when we let our beliefs conquer love. We must not let this happen."

"Try to be great. Try to give extra. Try to be bold, try to invent your own reality, try to do what’s not been done before. Don’t even get started if you’re going to do some mediocre shit cause there’s so much of that. Don’t do it just to make noise, there’s too much noise. Give me something amazing, give me something new. Give me something I haven’t seen before in a way I haven’t seen it. Let me feel something, find some kind of magic. Go towards something that’s inexplicable. Give it to me, give me something that’s aggressive and gnarly. Chew up the world, come at it from some other place, but just don’t give me the same shit over and over again because I don’t want it."
