today when I woke up, our electricity was shut off. we paid it a few days ago, but I guess it was still late. so we went and paid the rest of our money, not already promised to bills this month, to get it turned back on. it sucks but I can't complain when I can't imagine what DTE is doing to all these families were hearing about getting theirs shut off who actually CANT afford to pay. so I'm sitting here like, WHY are bills crippling EVERYONE for something that costs companies almost nothing. why am I paying for water when it's a near inexhaustible natural resource. why is one of the 6 wealthiest banks, and government funders, also the largest student loan company? my friends went to school to be drown in student loans and bills ON PURPOSE, they don't care what we learn. we get careers to stay lower-middle class? why are there billionaires doing whatever they can to control NATURAL RESOURCES and make us work non stop to get them, and suppress our creativity just to get by. as long as you can smoke weed or drink at the end of your work shift it's all good right? just get by till the next day. life and dreams have changed so so drastic so fast since I was sitting on this mountain. as long as I have a voice I'm using it. as it continues to grow, I'm learning and trying to voice things far more than just what I'm experiencing. so this next project I'm making will speak volumes. it's not just going to be a skateboarding video, I can't even be that selfish with everything going on. lets me know I came a long way from looking over the earth thinking the world was as big as living my dreams. when living dreams is really just escaping the slave plantation and living how we were supposed too. but for now I already said more than I want to think about at the moment. and I'm going to go escape on my skateboard. much love. hope the best for everyone reading this. I'm trying to build my world, so I can help fix ours. but I know the truth so I'm at war. please be patient with me. I'm learning relatively alone. I'm messing up heavy. but I promise I'm trying. and I promise it's not selfish. #adetroitfilm


it's crazy. believe me it's crazy!how quick people will forget how bright they thought you were, or the advice you were trusted by them to give. or anything that they thought or felt about you. they forget it, instantly, at the first sign of something that seems wrong at face value. people can't comprehend that one huge issue is full of a million different memories, and other issues, and words, and thoughts, and feelings, all leading into that situation. when you are held in high regard to people, they have to crucify you to the highest level at any sign of error. and they do. people gas each other up. they ride with their side of the situation at all costs. which is cool. but not always right. it's the art of what our peers are capable of doing to us. it's a rare soul that stands on it's own, thinks on it's own, and acts off what is less of intelligence and more common sense. but common sense is the new intelligence in this generation. it's lacking. no this isn't some sad post, this is just what's been eating my brain alive today, and I decided it's time for me to push it out so I can go back to spending my time thinking about how I can become great enough to create what I'm trying to, and give back to my generation. it's been a long long journey to this point, and by some miracle, a whole lot of love, even hate by people I have nothing but love for, whether we've met or not, I've still continued to grow, and so has the love. so when I have to have a huge life change, or even a little one, I know I can handle it. the opposite of love isn't hate anyways. the opposite of love is not caring at all. and if you could see the love and honestly the intensity of some of the hate, then you would understand where all of this comes from. this is probably one of the more personal things I've ever posted, but you follow Jordan Michael Garland, and that is where I speak from. so thanks for letting me add my art like this photo, to a post, and try to type this out and make sense of how people think how they do. right or wrong is vague these days. in some situations it's only felt and not proven. but only the people who feel know. idk. PS I miss my brother so much😫love
