I was very anxious when younger. Being shy, never had called attention in my elementary school. Like rock and skateboarding was enough to be hated. Seems silly now, but some people would rather die than be seen with me. I was called grunge all day. I still remember the night that I decided I would like to join a band as a profession. I had a really cool aunt who loaned me some CDs of Nirvana and Pearl Jam, and bought my first CD from Bink-182. That’s when I realized I was not going to be the little Dougie Poynter, who was the target of popular and was known to have lizards as a hobby. Even I didn’t have any notion about music, I would follow my dream so I went with my mother to my first test with 15 years old.

“If everyone was a little bit nicer to people, the world would be much better place.”
“It’s just such an unattractive trait… I never want to be the guy who leaves the room and people talk about me how they’ve just talked about that guy when he’s left.”
“It’s a very cool job, but it doesn’t make me any better than anybody else. If you’re not very nice to people, word gets around. If you act even slightly diva, people will pick up on it. If i see someone acting like they’re something special it shocks me into not doing it even more. I don’t understand why you cant just be nice to people, whether you’re in the public eye or not.”
“Not everyone can understand it, but to that girl or that boy, it might be the most important thing in the world. Just ‘cause we don’t understand it doesn’t mean you can say it’s crazy.”
"I got told a motto to live by and I’ve kinda tried it, of ‘Work hard, play hard, and be nice.’ And I think it works."“Be nice to nice.
