*Most are mine, some I’ve read from other people…
1. The more you get to know certain people and what they’re really about, the more you end up despising them. It is better to keep your distance. Thus the term “frenemies”.
2. Continue to be creative, whether you have an audience or not. When you do have an audience, you fall into the trap of creating what they want to see out of you – not what you want to actually create. Don’t be a crowd-pleaser.
3. Most people think they are being “weird and different” – little do they know that they are really just followers, unconsciously jumping on to the next hip thing.
4. The best way to support artists is to actually buy their art.
5. Unless you are some kind of celebrity, if you don’t know how to compliment or like other people’s stuff (online or in real life), then don’t expect much in return. Karma works in the same exact way online. But then again, don’t force it if you really don’t like anything at all! There’s a fine line between pity-liking, pity-following and being you. If you can’t decide between the three, then definitely be YOU.
6. Find your inspiration in the rarest of places, because the internet is played out.
7. Be mysterious and full of surprises – don’t show everything you do on the internet!
8. Be random in these times of predictability.
9. People (even the person who wrote this) will contradict themselves. If you don’t know who or what to believe in, believe in yourself.
