fav lyric from a song

The circumstances put soul in me

And there ain’t no holdin’ me

I’ve got a heart made of gold in me

Can you believe this is where I’ve been?

And when adversity comes again

I’ll deal with it then

A Little Better, Gnarles Barkley

the nublack philosophy/mantra according to Jenn Everett

Remain true to your passions no matter what others do to discourage you. People will always try to make you average because misery loves company.
