    today i have to speak to a journalism class at cal state los angeles 

    and im a tad nervous

    even though ive done this sorta thing a few times i always get a few butterflies, which is nice, it reminds me im alive.

    i get nervous because i dont wanna say the wrong thing and embarrass my boss or the paper.

    what will i say? same old same old: dream, dream big, then dream bigger. kiss the people you like, live, then write it down.

    A-B-B: always be blogging.

    dont listen to the haters in your life. theyre on the planet to hate, youre on the planet to rock.

    without the haters the game wouldnt be as fun. how fun would basketball be if there was no one defending you?

    how fun would dating be if all the girls showed up to yr door with a tshirt that said i <3 busblog? how fun would pacman be without Blinky Inky Stinky and Mel? be creative, be outrageous, be ridiculous, forget about spelling, forget about design, forget about rules, just write. write till you get carpal tunnel. write until you get fired from E!, write until your girlfriends hand in their i <3 busblog halfshirts because theyre sick about getting written about. write at night, write when youre tired, write when you have nothing to say, write when you have everything to say. have secret blogs, have public blogs, have group blogs, have blogs where you write as the opposite sex. have video blogs have dream blogs have nightmare blogs have daydream blogs. omg have a blog where nothings true. some might say this advice is good for writers but not photographers. i would say you should have posted that complaint in a blog and added a photo. i would have said add a photo essay, i would have said made a gallery in flickr with 100 people frowning. the world is yr oyster, get a bib. then tell us and show us and share with us how it tasted.
