21 años.

I turned 21 today (as evidenced below):

However, after all the debauchery* of the day, I am sitting in my room reading out of old, half-filled moleskine notebooks. Most of them are filled with ramblings, drawings and/or lyric ideas that went nowhere. Some of it’s not half bad. Most of it is horrible.

That said, I’m learning not to classify what I do as ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Especially if it’s not a ‘commercial’ piece of art. If it’s something that goes into my notebook first thing in the morning, it’s not good, or bad. It just is what it is.

I know that this is where I’m supposed to put something cheesy about growing up, and looking back on the past, but I’ll avoid it.

I’ll just say that I think my generation needs less ‘social networking’, less personal profile building, and more time to just let things be what they are: without worrying about what it’s going to look like on myspace/facebook/twitter/linkedin/google.

I’m working really hard on that.

I’m growing.
