So I’ll write.

The times I have sat in front of my laptop frustrating over words. Now it’s on my smartphone.

So I’ll write. I’ll write poetry, fragments or even large chunks of short stories.

I work in a call centre by day and have recently begun the road of a creative entrepreneur.

I know that 9–5 had slowly and surely pissed me off to no end.

I know that I’m tired of waiting on higher ups to offer positions when I’ve embraced the grind but will little or fanfare.

The problem is…I’ve been sick for nearly half of my life already. Now I’m done complaining.

I’m working on building a personal brand geared towards creativity and social commentary with a splash of my ‘eau de geek' in there too.

For once, I will do me.

Rise above my friends.
