I’m pretty sure my dad and I can read minds. While I was warming up some noodles and fixing myself a cup of coffee, I told myself, “My dad would be happy to know the trash is taken out.” I tried throwing away a dirty paper towel earlier and saw that the damn thing was over flowing, so I to tried and push the crap down. After noticing that it didn’t work, nor will it ever, I made the decision to just be the good kid in this household and talk out the trash.
In the process of pouring two packets of low calorie sweetener in my cup, my dad called. I didn’t notice that he called until I looked down at my pebble to check the time and saw there was a recent missed call. I called the old man back who asked readily if I took the trash out. With excitement and blurted out yes, managing to drop my spoon on top of the microwave. I then was asked about the air filter which I wasn’t even thinking about -I gotta change that tomorrow- but yeah, minder readers.

I know I should probably be studying for this quiz so I don’t fail it like I did my last one, but I have to clear my mind of these thoughts real fast so I can focus my attention on Inequalities.
As usually, after work this morning I went over to my buddy Daimont’s where we had a conversation of higher thoughts. A thought that I was thinking about a few days ago popped up and it had to deal with adulthood.
Once you hit 21 you are a full on adult. You can practically do ANYTHING. We can totally scratch the age 18 off the list becasue we all know that you got to be 21 to walk up into the club. As an adult though we take on more responsibility – unless you live at home like I do – and that can take up a lot of precious time. We all have our own interest in life and trying to balance that along with a job and for the most part school, it gets tiring.
Like I was telling Daimont, I wish that I could go back and tell my younger self to enjoy the life of being a kid. I feel like as we grow up we want to take more responsibility and be an adult, but we forget that we are adults LONGER than we are as a kid. Think about it, as a kid all you had to do was pretty much tell you parents what your needs were. If you were hungry they fed you, if you fell and hurt yourself they bandaged you up. Our parents have done everything for us from putting a roof over our head and putting food on the table.
As an adult, all that responsibility that your parents had raising you now falls into your hands. All in all, being an adult is an extremely hard job… if you make it out to be that way. As the comedian Tyler Craig would say, “the moral of this story is,” Enjoy being a kid. If you’re grown and already got kids, let them live life to the fullest. If you don’t have any kids, smile when you see them to let them know that not everyone is bad.

Okay so apparently I already knew this becasue when I went to the page to say I’m going it already said that I was interested. So I’m guessing the time between then and now I have slautered those brain cells with a LOT of THC. But hey! This is exciting, Katt Williams is coming to Louisville! Its crazy because just last year I was listening to his comedy specials on spotify and now I get a chance to see him live!
I’m way to stoked about this. Katt Williams in my richard Pryor of Modern Day comedy. This man gets on stage and says whatever the fuck he feels like and the entire show is great! Katt inspired me to simply not give a fuck and to give these people a show. Not everybody can just get in front of a large crowd of people and tell jokes. Thats a serious talent right there that only few have.
These tickets go on sale tomorrow so best believe that I’m going to be on that!

I would first off like to let everyone know that today will be a good day so don’t worry about the rain!
Now, lets take you guys on a journey into my mind this morning. Yes I fly a kite way out there and I thought a shower would kill it but I guess not. Anyways; I just noticed that I use that word a lot when I make blogpost. I really need to stop that.
Theres more to life than what we see correct? If you agree upon that staement then proceed forward with caution becasue this is about to be a scary ride. Now if you are at your computer right now I want you to stop completely what you are doing. Sit there still, breathing very slowly. While doing this, begin to survey the area around you and feel the presence of everything that is exsistance!
Did you feel it?
What I was trying to make you do is try and experience realtiy. Now what I mean by that is that I am trying to allow you to realize reality. According to the Oxford Dictionary, Reality means: The quality of being real, something real and not imaginary, and life and the world as the really are. Another way you can explain this is the existance of everything conceputal and nonconceptual.
When I came across thsi information, I took a minute to realize everything around me the existance of it. With our everyday lives taken up buy working a job or going to school, we never really have the time to even think about something like that.
If all of this is confusing to you than I apologize, this nothing more than of me just ranting about insidious thoughts that float around my brain. Or maybe we can look at this as some type of … yeah I don’t know. Just try not to take me too seriously becasue that never works in life.

As much as I bitch and moan about college on the internet, you’d probably think that I just gave up on the whole thing and quit. But I haven’t. I’ve been in school for damn year 4 years and haven’t really gotten anywhere but to College Algebra (Which I totally should be studying for). There are many reasons of why I couldn’t have just quit but all of them would just be rubbish.
The real reason why I haven’t quit college is becasue of what a group of old black guys who were paving our driveway back in 2010. I was in highschool, I think it was my sophomore year too, and I had just got home from school when I seen all these old black dudes laying asphalt in my driveway. I quickly ran into the house to drop my stuff and eagerly ran back out to watch them assemble my new driveway.
*As a side note, don’t get some old black guys from your ghetto neighborhood to lay new asphalt in your driveway. Our someone new driveway is trashed and falling apart, but hey, they tried.*
As they made their way from the garage to the patio door, I remember looking at them as they wiped sweat off their foreheads from the extreme heat the asphalt gave off. Tired and dirty, they kept moving, throwing and flattening asphalt. As I stood by the patio door, I one of the old guys looked up and me and said, “Stay in school, go to college, you don’t want to do this.” Now considering the fact that I possibly recall seeing him at the liquor store, I took his word of advice. Deep down this man probably wishes that he would have done something better with his life instead of waste it looking for fun inside of a bottle. It was either or he just saw me as a kid and figured he would say some adult stuff.
Till this day those words from that old black guy still linger in my head. Even when I am in class trying to figure out what the fuck a Quadratic Equation is supposed to do, I hear his faint grumbles.
What the hell man! I feel like we literally just stepped into the new year. Here it is January 25th and my buddy Brentez’s birthday and J.Coles are 3 days away! Its funny how as children we aspire to already be adults not knowing about the haunting futures ahead of us. I honestly wish I could tell my younger self to chill the fuck out with wanting to be grown becasue it isn’t fun. We spend most of our lives as adults and only get to be careless for a mere 17 years.
Maybe I’m just thinking too hard about this. Either that or I just need to quit smoking. I’m also behind on a lot of stuff, like the daily quote that should be on my site, my homework, and also the books that I am reading. I need to get back in the sing becasue every weekend my pace gets slowed down becasue I have to work for my dad. Most people get weekends where they just chill and get homework done, guess who doesn’t? I’m not saying that everyone is like that, I know people that have to work weekends like I do but they never enjoy it.
I think what I need is a better schedule but my sleep is all over the place that its hard to do. I guess this this is where a little growing up and going to sleep early does, but I hate going to sleep early. I would totally just stay up late on the weekends doing what I do but my dad is always in my ear talking about racism or some political shit that at this time in my life I don’t care about. (See how I worded that? I’ll probably care about it when I’m 30…but not now). I’m 22 fucking years old man, I gotta to get my shit together but my dad is holding me back from my true potential. I’ve been thinking about moving out but that would be way to hard since I don’t have a car and need to get to work and school some how. I guess I could just quit school and catch the tarc to work. But I don’t want to give up on school just yet becasue I want to become a journalist and don’t know of anything else that will help me develop those skills. Not to mention that most places want you to have a degree in Journalism.
Fuck man, this sucks ass.
