My interview for Sidestreet Hero
Hello, Im writing this to inform you guys I've decided to stop. I dont know for how long but I'm done. I'm not too well, both mentally and physically, and I cannot really explain that. I don't have the means to fight anymore, perhaps I need to be in a better headspace. If you've been following me, you know I've been at it for years so I felt like I had a responsibilty to tell you guys this since I did post it on my instagram too, thank you for the support all these years. whatever work of mine is already up on this page, it might just be the last. till then. godspeed.
I got featured in Techjuice's annual feature Pakistan's 25 Under 25! 2018
I have long since stopped posting/ranting about how I felt on this page, but what scares me more is my growing distaste towards Art in this country. Whereas I wanted to create my own audience, my own niche through sticking to what I wanted to create instead of what majority of the people here wanted to see. It lead to nothing but frustration and depression at the end. I wish I believed in gimmicks. I wish I had interest in cashing in on our culture and history just to appeal ...to a larger audience like most artists have been doing. I wish I could use buzzwords to sound cool. I wish I could target latest trends. I wish I could sell my heart, I wish I could strip myself off of my individuality, I wish I didn't feel like an outsider; like a reject. I wish I could enjoy being mediocre, I wish I didn't set high expectations of myself. It's a constant struggle inside this stupid little head, taking breaks longer than I should. Being passionate about something is good, but too much passion can eventually burn you out.
This is just something that I wanted to get off of my chest. peace!
