    this is for all the older people on the boards (25+). Im just trying to figure out whether you guys are happy with yourself. Ya sure graffiti is great, graffiti is god whatever, how do you feel about that though? do you ever wish that you did something else? i dont know maybe this is just a dumbass subject in which i am sorry for wasting your time but do any of you ever like wanna be someone or do something else in your life. basically im trying to figure out whether graffiti limits your (everyones actually) options in life.

    im a fucking dork.

    No. I don't ever wish I did anything else. I, and I'm sure EVERY graf writer over 25, has other interests and ambitions outside of graf. I have no regrets. Graf has given me adventures, memories, and an outlet of expression I would never second guess.
    Is there more to life than graf? Yes. Of course.
    Does writing enhance my life? It has and still does. When it doesn't, I'll stop. Simple.
    I love my life. You should love yours. If you don't, change it.
    Do your best and never be ashamed of being who you are.

    before I get deeper into something that could further my mental illness...does graf cause antisocialism,compulsive behavior and depression? I noticed this one tag in a zine that said 'What will I do with my life'and it reminded me of this post.
    Suffering for your art indeed!no pun intended

    I think about this a lot. you have to look at it like this. graffiti is what you make of it. I have a million loser friends whose only ambition in life is to get fucked up and paint a lot. then i have another million friends who barely ever paint and still dont do shit. I paint a minimum 2-4 times a week and I am a college graduate with many options waiting for me. It is all in how you approach not only graffiti but also your life. you can do and be who you want... graffiti is just one aspect....... I love graffiti...i owe many things to it and it will always be a huge part of my life...long live life.....long live graffiti.....

    im no were near 25 but i would like to throw my 2 cents in. not about me but the oldest writers i have associated with are some fx cats. NOT PAINTED WITH THEM.(<to avoid hate). i went to tuff city tatoos in the bronx and met ces yes med and others. i expected them to be complete ass holes. i know its the wrong way to walk in to something but its what i thought. when i met them they were so cool. i mean so much fame they have run through and so many years of painted hands and they act and look as if they never look back on it and regret there ever so addictive telents. it is safe for me to say i want to be like them. not painting or any thing else. just feel the same way they look as if they felt..... no its not jocking. there paint talent is obvious and common now a days its there heart thats hard to find...

    props to fx...

    graffiti fucked me over in a way...
    in school i did nothin but sceatch for 3 years then dropped out cuase i never did my work an wasnt goin any where , then i lost alot of my freinds an mostly associated with other writers an my regular crew, then got busted for graff an lost a mass of respect from my family....

    but when i think about it it woke me up..
    i now know that i need to work hard to live a respectable future
    im goin to night school to make up the years i failed.
    all my freinds i lost only were only my freinds cuase we were all in the "cool" group, i couldnt give two fucks about half those chumps
    all my real freind have been here since i was like 7-8
    an all my real freinds help me thru life an dont leave me stranded
    an i also learned that respect grows with knowledge tell your family how you really feel an what it means to you,even if its stupid let them know its somthing you want to do an they should respect you for it. my family dosent agree but they respect my decision.

    i love my life just for he fact that it could be worse it could be greatly improved but it isnt an thats just how it is...
