This is another self-portrait I drew. The red dragon on my right arm represents my bachelor's degree from Minnesota State University Moorhead. The blue lion on my left arm represents my associate's degree from Normandale Community College.
Life can suck sometimes. Bills can pile up, people can ride your ass at school or work, and the people you care about can die or forget about you. The only way to overcome these kinds of pain is to always push forward. Seize every opportunity you can, and if none exist, then carve your own. Most importantly, look on past mistakes not as failures, but as steps towards understanding what success really means.
