Eleven Squared

Why is 11:11 so important to me you ask? I'm not sure how to answer that, but let me try. Since as far back as I remember, I've always seen a series of 1's (most commonly 11:11 or 1:11). I remember standing in a single file line at the end of 4th grade waiting for the bell to ring. There was this big digital clock above the classroom door and for some reason, I always looked at it when the clock read, 1:11. Since then, this number has followed me. I was at the gym and I looked at the big digital clock at exactly 11:11am at 11 seconds. I would come home around 4pm and the power had gone out earlier in the day; it stopped the microwave clock at 11:11am. It happens in any way and any form. Maybe it's a coincidence but maybe it's not. I cannot accurately describe it, but when I see these numbers, I get this sensation. It's almost the same feeling as though someone tapped you on the back or that someone is trying to get your attention.

A few years ago, I did some research to see if this happened to anyone else. To my surprise, it happens to other people too! Then, one day I walk out of my bedroom and I look at the photos hung across my hallway. I never really take the time to stop and reflect on the many wonderful memories in my life.

I looked straight and almost instantly drop my coffee.


The photo of myself when I was around 1 years old had the number 1111 right above me. It was my apartment number in Treasure Island, California. Too funny. Maybe I subconsciously kept this number in my mind as a baby. I decided to give this number a meaning. To me, it means a reminder that I'm on the right path and to keep going. When I see these numbers, I stop what I'm doing and recognize my thoughts and my actions at that very moment. Am I doing what my heart tells me to do or am I doing something out of character? Almost like a mental check.


So there you have it, my album is called Eleven Eleven, releasing on 11/11 for $1.11 haha

Thank you all for believing in me.

Love,
