Not

2 cars, a house, beautiful fiance, and daughter. Good paying job, with all the benefits.

Seriously can't complain from just a few years ago. 100% better.

Maybe I think about things differently, but I don't view my decision in terms like this.

 

Can't really say I have made a really good or bad decision. I have made decisions that were the best option at the time. So of course I would pick those options.

 

Nothing really comes to mind that strikes me as the best decision I have ever made. I see the downside in all my decisions. Pessimist.

what was it?

 

Quitting a "great" job that took 6 months and a battle with over 300 people to get.

 

why'd you make it?

 

Because fuck that.

 

spontaneous or not?

 

Very.

 

how's your life worked out since then?

 

I quit and told myself to move forward and always progress (learn). Never look back and keep moving ahead in life. This has lead me on a long path of ups and plateaus (8 years later). Now I own a profitable and growing business. I just keep and eye and ear out, network, try to know what everyone is doing and has going on.

Joining the Army.

 

I was not in a good place when I joined, emotionally, mentally, or financially. I had $65,000 in school debt, a serious drinking and occasional drug problem, had totalled my truck and only had a bicycle for transportation, and a shit paying job in a great restaurant.

 

Today I have very little debt, am going back to college--paid to do it and paid for, and am far more stable than I ever was before in my life.

 

Being in the Army was the hardest thing I've ever done, and its certainly took it toll on my body, but I am so much better for it.

If you have any questions about joining, let me know.

 

Stay in school, best option.

Stopped giving a fuck what my ex thought about graf or art or me talking to other humans and started living my life again. Ended the engagement, gave me myself back.

 

It is scary easy to lose yourself sometimes but I feel like me again.

I quit drinking 6 years ago. I was sick of feeling like shit and doing dumb shit and saw where I was headed. since then ive watched all the people I used to drink with do the same shit they've always done. some of them hold it together, while others are pretty much lost. I didn't wanna go down that road, I don't fare well with addiction, and I made a choice to not do it. down side-"I was drunk" is no longer a usable excuse for anything stupid I do...

also joining band. ive been into music way longer than ive been into graff. ive been playing in bands on and off since middle school.watching everybody around me get wrapped and have to deal with court dates and fines and lawyers and getting beat up by the cops , going to jail for graff and coming out cholos or Nazis., there was a period of about 4 years where I wasn't in any bands. I was doin drugs and painting my ass off. since I started playing music again, I realize that as much as I love graff, and still do it, if I lost my freedom to play music because of graff id feel real fuckin stupid inside. now that im in a band, its forced me to be smarter and more mature about my paint game.because now when im think about painting, I also think about recording and going on tour and putting out records. and I have a legal outlet for my aggression and artistic drive that allows me to travel all over the place for hella cheap, and have fun.
