"Don't You Forget About Me" (feat. NFL Bring It All)
Heres an excerpt from an entry I wrote in my private diary in Feb 2016. This is an unexplored area of my life that I never really shared with the public. It is known, but this the first glimpse into it. I'm at such a vastly different place now and i'm so blessed to be there. But it is a trip to see where I've been and where we are now. Let's take a field trip to the past.
The Super Bowl has come to SF. It's been real festive here around town. So obviously i'm running to a corner and hiding.... As usual.... I know, I should be getting out into the world but i'm too scared to put my best foot forward. I'm excited to see Coldplay, Bruno, and Queen B take the stage for the half time show. Other than that, none of my teams made it to the super bowl. It's bitter sweet but at least the halftime show will be great. I seriously have really gotten into the NFL lately. I love the Patriots. I just have a thing for that team. Plus i'm kinda obsessed with Tom Brady's life. I mean come on, the guy is so cool. Anyways, I just hit 1,200 followers on instagram. It seems like people are watching me. I don't like the content I have been shooting lately. I just feel so unlike me. This year and the past month in general has been rough, as you know. It's kinda bringing me down that everyone around here is having the time of their life... Meanwhile i'm witnessing it and feeling so down. I'm trying to raise my spirit by having Dashia and Jamie come over to watch the game with me on Sunday. I hear there will be a new Captain America Civil War trailer dropping. So take all my money Marvel. All geekiness aside. There is this songwriting comp coming up next week. I'm debating if I want to do it. It's a stretch for me. I haven't done something like this in so long. I mean it will give whatever audience I have left, something to talk about. I'm scared of loosing my small as hell following of 1,200 followers. I'm at the bottom of the stick right now, but I know I have to push myself to give it all that I have. I had such a hard week this week. It took me all week to write in here because I couldn't see on Monday. Sunday night my vision shut off and dad had to guide me around. I was in so much pain. I'm a little off right now, but I'm not me. I can feel myself spiraling downwards and it is not something I am proud of. I have very little ounce of hope in me. But I continue to watch the breakfast club and be reminded that somewhere in me I can make a classic and that I will be fascinating to the outside world again. I mean have they seen me? I'm on so much meds right now, I don't know how i'm writing this. I'm tired, i'm tired of this all. But I still have a little flicker of hope in me. I don't want to be this forgotten guy that just rotted his talent because his vision is rotting. I want to be remembered. I have to fight this depression and feelings i'm feeling. I need to. Hopefully Sunday will be a good day for the super bowl. I hope it can uplift my spirits a little bit and I hope the half time show and drive of the players drive me to do this songwriting comp. I need to. For the sake of my soul I need to I mean it's been a long time since I had the need to even do a touch down dance. I'm in dire need of some sort of good news. I'll fill you in on how it goes later. It's been a long week. I spent majority of it in the hospital. It's time I shut off my macbook for a little bit. Happy Super Bowl weekend world... Like they are ever gonna read that.
to me - Dom, it's gonna be okay, in the long run.... please know that... reach inside and get out what is needed to give what you can... you can't turn back, and you are writing this for a reason... the world may forget about you, but don't you forget about yourself and what you can do.
