I feel this feel
I’m so fucking done right now.
I rarely get like this, but it fucking sucks when everything keeps building up. It sucks when I see all of my peers getting so much success and recognition (that they totally deserve, don’t get me wrong) and I feel like I’ve been stuck and going nowhere with my photography for the past year. It’s fucking hard when the people I talk to about it just tell me to keep my head up and keep working hard because it’s fucking exhausting when I feel like I’m getting nothing in return except for a few pretty pictures to hang on my wall.And it fucking sucks when I can’t even talk to my best friend about these things…
I want to keep my head up and keep working hard and stay positive, but it’s easier said than done. It’s really fucking hard to keep on keeping on and moving forward when every single fucking door seems to shut right in front of me.
I’m not looking for reassurance or pity or even advice, I guess I just need to put this out there, because I’m so fucking sick of holding it in all the damn time and acting like everything is great.
This is the worst I’ve felt in a really long time.

RIGHT. It’s 100x easier to make it big when you’ve got boy band looks coupled with decent voices and people who will write hit songs for you. They’ve got it good and I’m not bitter about that, because bands like 5SOS have always been and will always be around, but it makes me mad when they’re on the cover of AP with the title “why pop punk needs 5 seconds of summer” when I don’t feel that they’re pop punk at all
Agreed. Though I wouldn’t go so far as to call them wannabes - I doubt these kids even have any say in their music/looks whatsoever, I can almost guarantee that that part is completely up to their label/management telling them what to do and wear. Bands like 5SOS are a product - they’re something that the media/label wants listeners to consume. I mean, they’re considered a “pop punk band,” yet they don’t even write their own music, which is totally not “punk” at all in my opinion. I dunno, I feel really old and jaded talking about this, but it just upsets me when I see awesome hardworking people every day who deserve just as much success but will never get it.
