What do I want?
I want a career and not a job.
I want to be successful at that career.
I want to go on an adventure, to get to a point in life where I can just go out on the road and explore and not have to worry about how to do it or getting time to it, just to it.
I want my work in art to out live me.
I want my name and works it belongs to to be mentioned in classes the way professors talk about Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Pollock, Parks, Salinger, Kerouac, and Hemingway.
I want to matter.
I want my work to matter.
I want to be brave enough to do something and not be afraid to fail at it.
I want to take risks regardless of the reward or vilification.
I want to stand on my own and not be afraid to do so.
I want to make that one piece that will be synonymous with my name.
I want to be better.
I want to be the best.
I want to be at peace with myself.
I want to forgive myself for holding me back.
I want to be happy…as everyone does.
