Shoutout to @wreckaflames for making me laugh all day today

Off the hook song (or: the only 15 seconds I’ve written so far)

Things to worry about:

Worry about courage
Worry about Cleanliness
Worry about efficiency…

Things not to worry about:

Don’t worry about popular opinion…
Don’t worry about the past
Don’t worry about the future
Don’t worry about growing up
Don’t worry about anybody getting ahead of you…
