About Me

CURRENT MISSION

beautiful people don't just happen.

ABOUT ME

so I've recently read over my "about me" stint and decided it was a bit much.
in reality, to actually conclude yourself within a standard 5 sentences (more or less), is pretty much impossible. people try to write down their lives in books, movies, and for the most part succeed. but there will always be scenes cut from the final project, pages edited out due to relevance to the bigger message, etc.
bottom line is; you can't explain yourself completely to anyone, language is a means of communication, but there will always be misunderstandings. all we have are blue prints of ourselves to offer,
here's mine:
I'm back in canada, continueing my education.
I'll do anything for someone I care about,
I don't tolerate condescending people or stupidity,
I seem to be somewhat of a humorous person for the majority of my time, i\m actively participating in my music and art,
and I want you to figure this part out for yourself,
so, go.

PHILOSOPHY

learn, with every step you take.
smile pretty, choose your battles, and watch your back.

Teach, Learn, Share

there is no point in getting upset over something that you can't control, so choose to be happy, love life and look out for yourself. you can never know to much, and never forget the lesson you have been lucky enough to learn. learn something every day.
