Bow Down - The reason I put out Bow Down is because I woke up, I went into the studio, I had a chant in my head. It was aggressive, it was angry. It wasn’t the Beyoncé that wakes up every morning, it was the Beyoncé that was angry, it was the Beyoncé that felt the need to defend herself and I listened to it after I finished and I said..
"this is hot!" imma put it out. I’m not gon’ sell it, imma just put it out. People like it? Great. They don’t, they don’t and I won’t do it everyday because that’s not who I am but I feel strong and anyone that says “oh that is disrespectful” Just imagine the person that hates you. Imagine the person that doesn’t believe in you and look in the mirror and say bow down bitch and I guarantee you’ll feel gangsta.

- Beyoncé

I like the stars. It’s the illusion of permanence, I think. I mean, they’re always flaring up and caving in and going out. But from here, I can pretend…I can pretend that things last. I can pretend that lives last longer than moments.

This L.A.-bound photographer’s love letter to San Francisco is so relevant. I recently moved out of SF to move to NYC and this video reminds me of how much I love SF. <3 

Favorite line: "I think this City taught me how to enjoy myself, ya know. And I don’t just mean having fun, but how to enjoy being myself."

I am a drifter, and as lonely as that can be, it is also remarkably freeing. I will never define myself in terms of anyone else. I will never feel the pressure of peers or the burden of parental expectation. I can view everyone as pieces of a whole, and focus on the whole, not the pieces. I have learned to observe, far better than most people observe. I am not blinded by the past or motivated by the future. I focus on the present because that is where I am destined to live.
