every 182 times you blink you become more and more pop punk
Keep writing. make daily goals for yourself and hold to them.
just because these people you admire don’t have a degree doesn’t mean they’re not on a lifelong journey of self education and determination.
some people say ‘I don’t have to go to college because my hero didn’t go to college… so I will go smoke a bowl.’
it might be that your hero didn’t go to college but, I promise you, they spent every single night of their lives working on some project they never thought in a million years anyone would ever get to see. but it didn’t stop them.
and just because someone is being snobby to you doesn’t mean their advice isn’t valid. a lot of people I don’t like told me things that I needed to hear.
for the entirety of your life is your job to take in all the critique and decide, honestly, no matter where it came from, which advice applies to your work.
but none of it should stop you from sticking to your goals and being honest with yourself. sometimes when someone tells you something you didn’t want to hear deep down you know they were telling you something you already knew
not many I trust
