On Tuesday September 26th, I went to an R5 concert. Now I’ve been following this band for about 4 years now and it has been incredible. Before I went to that concert I screwed up this math test. Music always makes me forget about everything else and it makes me happy. It gives me a way to escape. Escape from everything that is going on around me.

Because, don’t we all  need an escape once in a while? Sure a holiday gives you some kind of escape, but does it really?Reality is hard work. Work hard and you’ll be successful. Hard work pays off. The people that don’t work hard or for that matter work at all, usually end up being a hobo, people say.

Now I know nothing about being successful, hell I’m still in high school, but I would love to become successful in filmmaking. Reality is sometimes we can’t chase our dreams. We have to do what we have to do in order to survive. And yes, sometimes that means taking a crappy job with a crappy boss and crappy colleagues. But we have to take care of ourselves. Keeping ourselves fed and comfortable.

When I think about making decisions I never think of myself first. I put other people’s priorities before my own. Sometimes thats a good thing, but not always.

Over the past years I have made plenty mistakes I wish I could take back and just do it all over again.

Unfortunately, reality is you only have one chance. One chance to make the right choice and if you make the wrong choice, the probability of spending time to make it up to that person is a long time.

For example, I made the wrong choice 4 years ago, and now I’ve finally been in a good place with one of my close friends.

Or the time where I chose to stay with the group and bully a girl at school, a boy at school , just because I wanted to fit in. Fit in and be cool just like everyone else.

Reality is not everybody has a good heart. Not everybody changes after they know what they’ve done to the people around them.

I changed completely after I saw that I hurt people in such a terrible way. Change is good. Because I saw that I hurt people, I saw that I had to change. I had to make a change in my life. It was the best change I could have done. It made me a better person, it made me who I am today. So think about your life, do you need a change for the better?
