Nathan Drake a better rapper than Drake?
Nathan Drake vs the Harlem Shake. See if you still want to make one after this
2012 is almost over, and FUCK what a year this has been. I took those “risk taking” methods of the end of 2011 and applied them to the entire year and shit’s been a roller coaster in every since of the word. I’m addicted to this shit now. Risk taking is like my crystal meth. I go through withdrawals playing it safe and find myself doing the most spontaneous random shit to get out of the uncomfortable norm. I was on the plane passing random notes to strangers/passengers recently because I was feeling icky of safe living.
NORMAL is so fucking UNCOMFORTABLE. It’s like sitting at an empty intersection when the light is red. That shit sucks. There’s not even anyone there, what is stopping one from just running the red light and continuing about their day. Sheeeit, now I do that all the time (assuming I won’t get flashed).
So many + to being a risk taker. You learn a lot about yourself… because not all risk will end in reward and a risk usually means consequences are grave. A nigga took some risk this year and failed, and other’s were like “you have got to be the most stupidest nigga to ever walk this gen”. I’d reply “you said ‘most stupidest’”, and continue on my warpath to supposed self-degradation. See what folks don’t understand is, while you may hit the ground face first many times, you’ll pop up much stronger, wiser and more full proof for whatever lies ahead. Not to mention the fact that the pay off for taking risk is normally big, so essentially it’s a win win situation when you really look at it.
So what was the biggest risk I took this year? Was it putting all of my eggs in one basket to win a wrongful-termination lawsuit against an old employer who sent me packing? Or the mindless traveling of the country that was most of the time done on a whim and without any true leads or objectives in my destination? What about the turning down of a high paying job by a high profile video game publishing company to pursue a career as an MC and success with my own establishment?
The list goes on… and so do the thrills. I feel good as fuck right now. Every high point I reach is every bit as gratifying as the low points are low. I end this year a much better person than I was last year thanks to risk taking. And being a better person has gotten me in a better position altogether. Thank you risk taking… For I will never play it safe in this life again. And hopefully I’ll last long… But if I don’t, I’ll go out courageously and happily taking a muthafucking risk.
I’m not fuckin any hoes raw though, that shit will never change. Safe Sex FTW!
hard at work
