My High School Illusion

My high school years were an illusion for me; junior and senior years to be exact. I did not get the same education as my peers, however, I have a feeling it was for a greater purpose. It is commonly known that everyone learns best in different ways, and I learn best immersively. My high school, now named Shortridge IB World School,  featured a program where students like myself had the opportunity to not only learn what it was like to be a college student but also get the immersive learning of a college student.

A select amount of students were chosen to apply, and under went a selection process much like a college admission. The program was a partnership between my high school and Butler University. Each student got to choose 1-2 classes per semester to take along side a high school class schedule, and were placed in a sort of collegiate home room for comfort and ease of learning.

Can You Control The Illusion like Loki?

Loki, from the realm of Asgard, is a very complex being with an intriguing gift; he can control vision. When you think about what he does in its’ simplest form it’s actually a lot more interesting, scientifically. His energy will be a very influential prospect in my creative endeavors next week. Some artists of music create illusions to their audience mimicking Loki, the god-villian.

If you have ghost writers that write about you and your life, you are winning! However, if you buy random lyrics from songwriters, umm’ I don’t think we know who you really are. I guess what I’m trying to say is, there is obviously a difference between good music and bad music. There are also, obviously, known strategies that reflect this contrast; is ghost writing the pendulum? Be honest in your music and you will notice the difference in the energy you put out into the world.

“Oh and by the way, Gossip Guy just hired me. I’ll be sleep, but my voice-over will be “alive” so to say. I just can’t stop turning my lemons into lemonade. Thank you Bey!”

Mars Emerte
Born and raised in Indiana, a state where mainstream music dominates and talent goes unnoticed, Mars Donté Jackson has always been in the loop with the newest and biggest artists out. As a kid, after obsessing over many music artists, Mars developed a passion for songwriting and secretly dreamed of being an entertainer/composer. He did not have the voice to pursue this dream so it died along with his songwriting, or so he thought. His love for music only grew, and he started to follow the lives, struggles, and careers of his favorite artists, such as Rihanna, Beyoncé, Chris Brown, Drake and many others, only to realize that the music industry was in need of a big paradigm shift, which took place during the first ever streaming wars. He makes it his mission to defy the standards and practices that are now dated in the entertainment industry to create new ways to market and make wonderful works of art. As a creative writer, journalism is the first step into his plan of changing the world. He dreams that everyone will become “woke” and join his journey in becoming liberated, and helping bring back the honesty and raw emotion in music, literature, and film.
