I guess the way I give myself off to people, people think I am an angry person; I guess from the way I dress but in reality I'm just the same person as everyone else, minding their own business, walking down the streets. Because of that I guess that is part of the reason why I do get harassed by the cops, which I don't blame, because they see an individual like myself and they just want to go ahead and assume. It doesn't bother me. I just learn from it by minding my own.
I've done dumb things and I've learned from it. I mean I've also paid the penalties, which is going away for a long time. I guess coming out I know how to act now, you know what I mean. I act smarter I guess, like, more responsible. I don't know how to describe it. I just act more like a citizen, at least the way they want you to be. Aside from that I'm just like everybody else in the world, living for something. I don't really find too many things that I'm good at but I am an artist so I use that as something that I can do in life, I guess. Something to portray.
I actually do have a stuffed animal. This is weird because my ex-girlfriend gave it to me and it's been in my house ever since. Not because I want it or anything like that, it just so happens to stay there. I tried throwing it away and it ends up back in my house. It reminds me of a person. It's funny because it has a red rag around it and in that person's family, I don't want to get too specific, but they wear red and my family wears blue. And they don't like each other. So that's the funny thing about it that it's in my house.
