Have you ever had a passion for something that people just won't understand?

    I love cars, and by that I mean I LOVE cars. Let me tell you how much: my dream job isn't being an entrepreneur, it's being the host of BBC's Top Gear. I would absolutely love spending the day driving cars...from crappy cars to lamborghinis and ferraris; I don't care I'll drive them all.

    I recently bought a car that cost a pretty penny and people go saying, "what a dumb idea, you could have invested that money" and whatnot. They don't understand my passion for cars. I'd take my passion over loads of money any day and my car purchase was a step in the right direction. I can sit in it for hours without end without even driving it, simply admiring the finely crafted machinery.

    Now obviously the chances of me getting my "dream job" are slim to none so this is why I am in internet marketing. I'm trying to achieve my dream of working with cars/testing new ones/learning everything about them because they certainly are not cheap.

    The purpose of this story is, don't mind what people say, do what you need to do to achieve your dreams and goals. Turn that marketing on overdrive and get there faster because today is the youngest you will ever be.

    This is me. This is why I blackhat. How about you?

    I feel ya brother. I got a 1989 Z32 (fairlady/300zx) japan import. No girl in my life could compare to her (her name is Mia) - Might seem weird to some, but you prob understand my love for this beast.

    Asides from that..Im 27 year old who plays music and tours with his band (to lose money - as if I was not broke enough) but it is all for the love

    Plus I paint and sculpt...plus I make short films.

    In other words, people have been telling me for years that I should get a real job and stop wasting my time blablabla - but fuck what others think man...never been this happy in my life!

    People just don't get the point of putting all this effort into what I do ....I don't get why THEY put so much effort into going to these jobs they hate and take abuse from ungrateful bosses. I don't get why THEY do that...but truth is, they probably do not either. They just do it cause everyone does and they have nothing in their life that brings em happiness...so they shit on us.

    Fuck em.

    I totally understand and I couldn't have said it better myself. Hopefully I'll be as happy as you when I'm out of college doing what I love!

    Just never forget who you are that's all.
