Best job you ever had?

What I am doing right now, music. I get to express how I feel and interact with a lot of people.

That I am a hooligan because of the friends that I hang around with. In fact, I once was insulted for being what I’m not. I am, however, a humble, God-fearing man.

I can talk for days depending on who I am with. Strangers think I’m shy, but to my friends and family, I can talk their ears off if I’m passionate about something. I also talk to myself sometimes!

Outdoors, somewhere I can breathe in fresh air and relax. Other than that, I enjoy spending time with friends.

Follow your passion and invest in it. It will pay you back. God first, discipline and focus.
