Favorite Quotes

"I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer."

- Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

"He went on to explain that when you start performing, you play for people who are just like you, and that's not really performing. Then you perform for people who just like you, and that's really fun. Then, "if you're lucky," you end up performing for people who want to be you, and that's really not as much fun because these people who want to be you always hate you a little because they're not you. They secretly want you to fail so you can know how it feels to be them. "Actually," he said, "it's not that complicated. There's a lot of people in a room. One guy's got the microphone. Everybody else's got the beer. They're all having about the same amount of fun."

- Dave Hickey, Air Guitar


Sleeping in, ordering chinese food, learning, finding secret stuff on the internet, looking at old art, shopping on ebay, watching movies with my girlfriend in bed, playing Gran Turismo on PS5, playing COD, collaborating, talking to people on discord, not waking up hungover, making funny sounds, acting retarded, laughing, eating, learning coding, spending time with my little brother, listening to music as loud as i can, smoking other people's Juuls, eating at fancy restaruants, spending more money than I make, jumping off cliffs into water, thinking about art im gonna make, talking about art im gonna make, not making the art i say im gonna make, doing exactly the opposite of what people want me to do, helping other people, hanging out with people like me, meeting people not like me, being antisocial, having fomo, thinking about stuff im gonna do in the future, trying to be in the present, saying im gonna start meditating, reminicing about the past, letting go of it...
