He keeps a wall in his house where he writes down all of his positive thoughts. He calls it the “The Great Wall of Positivity.”
Kansas is very religious, very Republican, and very straight-laced. I needed to get away from that… My family moved to town and we were kind of the outcasts. It was funny leaving the town and not having a lot of friends and then coming back now; there were people who used to kind of bully me and now they want to be my friend.”
