    So I am just now jumping on the whole Billie Eilish trending bandwagon, and I have to say I love how grounded and real she is. I love how she says life is meaningless. Sooooo true. Life is empty and meaningless and as soon as you realize and agree with this the less you will suffer in life. This will allow you to live life without fear!

    the talk on art brings art well, every single time when i put something out there, it gets stolen from me and i never get credit and i see folks taking what i put out there as their own and never saying "oh i got this idea from....." nothing ever comes out like that, then everyone wants me to prove it and by the time i get my ideas together everyone is like oh you just jealous that you couldnt come up with it, you know that hurts.

    When she was talking about music I really felt that. You usually can't make good music without being versatile in your music taste and liking a little bit of everything. There are great rappers but also awesome metal bands.
