Today’s sketch is on the song “Spaceship” by Kanye West from his “College Dropout” album. The song tells the story of a young Kanye working at the GAP clothing store and putting up with rude managers while he anxiously wait for his come up.
The song resonated with me instantly upon the first listen as I too wanted to do something that was beyond the typical 9-5 lifestyle. At that point, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted, I just knew working lame jobs wasn’t for me. I knew I wanted–needed a spaceship of my own. We should all be enjoying life, not living paycheck to paycheck and worrying about unpaid bills. Maybe that’s just how I feel. What do all of you think?
Here is a link to the song if anyone wants to give it a listen…
