A Few Words of Advice

Write what you want. Just don't take any classes where you have to read Beowulf. Do what you love, and fuck the rest. That's how you become great, man, hang your balls out there! Just Do It. Never take it seriously, if ya never take it seriously, ya never get hurt, ya never get hurt, ya always have fun, and if you ever get lonely...just go to the record store and visit your friends. The truth will set you free. If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing. Imagine. There's still time to be an utter jackass for whatever it is you want.You're gonna eat lightning and you're gonna crap thunder. You must chill.  Breathe and Reboot. Be Yourself-but not too much. Celebrate good times. Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.
