Good Morning

Good morning! It’s a beautiful day 🙂 I would like to thank God for everything. We can’t do anything without God’s love. It is not about us, but it is about what we can do for God.

I guess it was cocky of me to assume that I could just wing it and turn music into a career on my first try. I moved to Los Angeles thinking it would be easy and the truth is it is not. The music industry is not what you think it is and I am here to give you my perspective. I have the trap god and trap queen behind me. I have the nonprofit king with me. I have the irish money, the dubai express, the south twin cities, east euro, the moved out of hometown, the stayed in hometown. Life passes you by everyday whether you are happy so you should be happy. Don’t worry, be happy! Share more, code more, talk more, text more, type more. Type more! There is nothing wrong with being great as everything! Trevor Noah 🙂

You don’t say at day. You say at night.
What is this quip say about how English thinks about day vs night?

Btw did you know Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5 is married and has been since 2017 to his long time girlfriend? For some reason I forgot, because I had to of known, because I knew who his groomsmen were. Or did I know? Memory is so fleeting. Idk what I know and idk what I don’t. Who knows! Not I. Goodnight.
