i dont get it
"Artifice is the true realism, deceit lives in the flesh and will not show its face to any man. But give us a mask, and we will tell the truth…"
8. IF YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE THEN IT’S EASY TO MAKE ART. MOST PEOPLE ARE REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR IMAGE. ARTISTS HAVE ALLOWED THEMSELVES TO BE BOXED IN BY SAYING “YES” ALL THE TIME BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE SEEN, AND THEY SHOULD BE SAYING “NO.” I DO MY STREET ART MAINLY TO KEEP ROOTED IN THAT “WHO I AM.” BECAUSE THE ONLY THING THAT’S REALLY GOING ON IS IN THE STREET; THAT’S WHERE SOMETHING IS REALLY HAPPENING. IT ISN’T HAPPENING IN THESE GALLERIES.
9. DOING THINGS IN THE STREET IS MORE POWERFUL THAN ART I THINK. BECAUSE ART HAS GOTTEN SO….I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK ART IS ABOUT NOW. IT DOESN’T DO ANYTHING. LIKE MALCOLM X SAID, IT’S LIKE NOVOCAINE. IT USED TO WAKE YOU UP BUT NOW IT PUTS YOU TO SLEEP. I THINK THAT ART NOW IS PUTTING PEOPLE TO SLEEP. THERE’S SO MUCH OF IT AROUND IN THIS TOWN THAT IT DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING. THAT’S WHY THE ARTIST HAS TO BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT HE SHOWS AND WHEN HE SHOWS NOW. BECAUSE THE PEOPLE AREN’T REALLY LOOKING AT ART, THEY’RE LOOKING AT EACH OTHER AND EACH OTHER’S CLOTHES AND EACH OTHER’S HAIRCUTS.

Yesterday morning I woke up ok. My family and I went the mall and when I got inside I was ,obliviously, having certain feelings creep up and I didn’t take notice until it got to the point that I knew I was filling myself with poison. I felt anger and disgust. I was becoming over wrought, but not yet until we left and head to a mobile store to replace my phone. My dumbass cracked it and now I have to spend money on the screen so I can get one that actually works. This was becoming too much. I was trying to numb myself because I knew all I was feeling at the time wasn’t going to help at all at the time. I was thinking how I keep spending money when I want to save, but I keep wrecking my phone, and I don’t get paid a lot, and this makes me feel horrible. Makes me think how I’m going to be stuck forever with my family. Stuck with poison.
plus I’m having emotional problems with guys I’m talking to and I know I shouldn’t talk to them, but… I want to learn how to break free. I’m trying not to fuck everything up.
most saddest thing that I ever made on snapchat
