First things first, HAPPY (early) NEW YEAR! I hope this year didn't beat you up too badly, and I hope that with every beating, you took something valuable away from it.
This year, personally, was one of the best and worst at the same time. I struggled really hard with my own head. I made some choices, that I could've done better, if I could've waited out my brain a little longer. BUT, I worked harder than ever for my passion, I recorded a record with one of my all-time heroes. I moved to a new state with some of my best friends, FOR MUSIC!! I've created the most quality content in the past year, than I have my whole life! I found a new passion for taking photos.
I do this thing every year, where I get super inspired that the New Year is coming, and I come up with a ton of ideas for things I can do, but I never make em happen. So, with this website as my witness... I WILL MAKE THOSE THINGS HAPPEN!
2018 is the year for me, this band, and for all my friends! WE WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!
If you're going through a rough patch, keep going, because it does, and always does smooth out eventually. Use that experience to help others going through the same. Find a way to capture that experience, whether it's a blog, a song, a book, a picture, or a fucking instagram post! Get it out of you in some way, and I guarantee it can, and will make a difference in someone else's life.
Our experiences are what makes a lifetime. For better or worse, they're what make us who we are. There's no shame in that. Your worst day taught you something. Don't forget that.
I'm rambling at this point... but, from the bottome of my heart, I want to say thank you to anyone who's ever supported myself, or this band. Thank you for giving me the confidence (however little there is) to pursue my passion. Without people like you, telling me I could do it, I never would have known I could. So THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU. I know it may not seem like a lot to just listen to a song, or randomly tweet my band, or myself... but it has been the difference between me doing this, or something else. And there's nothing else I'd rather be doing with my life. <3
