Had a great time talking with the young men and women of Maplewood Career Center. This is my second year coming down and talking about applying themselves and taking full advantage of everything they are exposed too! I explain how i skated through school not really applying myself just having the cheerleaders do my school work, and how being selftaught is way harder and takes more dedication to learn than having it spoon feed to you on a daily basis. The teachers love how the kids sit still for a whole hour, they tell me they have a hard time getting them to sit still for 10 min! Hopefully i inspired some kids to push themselves and challenge themselves everyday and to not get discouraged when things dont come easy! This shit is hard and not everybody can do, just find what you love and put it all into it! Take pride in what you do! I also stayed after for an additional hour to preach the @mfurick FUPA gospel. The welding instructor was impressed with the cups so he will be in touch buddy! #austinmartinoriginals#mygooddeed#maplewood#teachingthefuture#iguessimarelatableguy#thekidsenjoyedmystory#ortheyenjoyedbeingoutofclass#alltigeverything#mfurickcup#inspiration The welding instructor asked me to come back to work with each student individually and i said I'm totally down!
We’ve been in #maplewood for a month now and every day love it more and more. This stream is behind Eli’s school and you don’t have to jump a fence to get in! What’s up with this place? Is it real? What’s the catch? Why is everyone so nice?
