Dear Diary, Who Will Inspire Us?

All BlackDear Diary,

Waking up this morning I felt this feeling of air. Nothingness. Unmoved and uninspired. I sat and thought about the meaning, the cause of this feeling. Then I remembered. Last night I turned on the TV searching for something ”entertaining” that would intice me enough to blog about it, research it, internalize it….yet found nothing. I turned to my faithful friend, the internet, in hopes that it would provide my mind with some stimulation. I found nothing. Air. So unmotivated and so uninspired. For a moment I felt like this would be the demise of my blog. Without inspiration, my outlet for my interests and free-flowing thoughts has no place. Is this what my generation is left with? The mundane, the stereotypical, the psuedo-intellectual, the fame seeking talentless mass media? Who will inspire us?

Then I sat and I thought and came to a realization. I DO NOT need mass media to inspire me!!! I have all the inspiration I need sitting beside me, calling me from NY and other states, or waiting for me whenever I come home to D.C.  My PEERS, my friends, my intellects, my generation!! You inspire me and  we inspire each other. I looked through my previous blog features, from the Electic Closet, to the New Faces Campaign, to art features, all of them are of my peers and friends!

This is an amazing feeling that I am indulging in at this moment. Why look to other sources and faces who belong to people I do not know when there is an abundance of talent, creativity, and motivation at arms length?

Thank you. Thank you my best friends, my close friends, my peers, my generation, my populace.

Yours Sincerely,
