Octane Induced

Another writing blog; more of an archive for myself but feel free to hang around. Glitter is cool and neon's my favorite color. Good Luck.

my little sister just told us she didnt want to wear shorts because her legs are hairy… SHE IS 8 YEARS OLD

tell her she can’t get hair on her legs until she’s 16. until then, it’s not hair, it’s fucking fairy dust. And she’s a fairy. And the other girls should be jelly

Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.

I hope there are people who have already said this and said it better than I will.

Want to make a living doing what you love? Great. Most people do. If you can make that happen—awesome!

Can’t make a living doing what you love? That’s okay. And your life will be no less fulfilled for it. John Green explains that well here (at least I think it’s John Green saying that? I can never quite tell with comments on quotes. But I know JG used to work at Steak ‘n’ Shake so)

And as an aspiring author who has yet to find a job that is really enjoyable other than writing, I can say from experience that it’s not so simple. Love knitting? Just own a yarn shop! Well, see, there’s more to it than that. You need money to start up a small business. You might need college education or at least practical classes, and those will cost money. You need experience and maturity and know-how.

Over time and through experiences, you can get all those things—and I really mean that. You can get all those things if you really try and you really persevere. If that’s your dream, do it. But in the in between time, you have to survive—so that might me taking a job that you don’t particularly like.

You like writing? Just publish a book! Right. But publishing books takes time (a. lot. of. time.), and there’s no guaranteed payoff. I used to serve in a restaurant, and it put my anxiety through hell. There were times when I hated serving, where I had minor panic attacks in the kitchen, where guests cussed me out, where managers cussed me out. But I had to do that job because it paid better than any other job I was qualified for, and my parents couldn’t afford to send me to college so it’s just what I had to do. And it was an invaluable experience—I learned so much and grew as a person. And all the time that I worked at that restaurant, I kept writing.

So here’s what I say. Do what you need to do to survive, appreciate what you’re given even if you always work toward more, and follow your passion even if it doesn’t make you a cent. (Side note: don’t torture yourself by saying “I should’ve/could’ve done this” and then wallowing in regret for the rest of your life. You didn’t own a yarn store. It’s okay. Move forward.)

It’s generally best not to make sweeping, authoritative generalizations about the value and nature of a human experience that you yourself have never had.
