IoT

I remember when I was much smaller I wanted a computer SOOO bad.
 
Everyone I knew had one.
 
On top of that, when people started getting cell phones I was last to get one. On the boot of it, I had to pay for my minutes because I wasn’t on my parents monthly plan.
 
Now that I have grown a lot older, I have managed to achieve those goals I had as a small child. I have a computer, smartphone, and a tablet that are all synced together. I am practically connected to every way that you could possibly access the internet, which was so precious to me when I was younger. Precious because I didn’t have access to it, knowing that all of my friends were on websites playing games and chopping it up in chat rooms.
 
Here I am years later with all the technology that I could possibly dream of and all I do is sit on facebook. My post are vulgar, full of errors and out right rants. I share memes, videos, and goofy pictures of my friends. I scroll hours at a time looking at pointless post that don’t mean a hill of beans in my life.
 
THIS is what I do each and every day, burning countless hours of my life in a virtual world where not one person can sincerely care about you. Status updates saying I’m depressed, countless unchecked notifications becasue it was just a “Like.”
 
this is what i do
 
I’m not sure if I like this. I have found myself lately finding joy in reading a book, minus the ebook part. I’ve been trying to find ways that I can be more productive and manage my time in a such a manner, that will allow me to accel forward.
 
The moral of this story is, my life is consumed in a bunch of likes, shares, and rude comments from characters who think the earth is flat. This is not what I envisioned. I honestly saw myself later on down the road as one of those nerds who spent a lot of time on Secondlife interacting with strangers who just want to dance to EDM music DJ’d by a guy in Guam.
 
I’m just saying.
 
Point being, I got what I want but now I don’t use it for what I initially intended it for.

Hot Coffee

No matter how much coffee I drink and how many words I write, I still don’t get a caffeine fix and the Editors at Android Headlines are going to tell me I suck at writing. I’ve come a long way from those days. I’m a better man with more ambition, so I hope. Today has been another one of those days where I’m just burning time, not accomplishing much but a word count and a lot of facebook shares. If you ask me, my life is practically boring, at least when my friends aren’t around.

Seems to me I kinda live off of them but I don’t know. My only concern right now is how in the hell am I going to get home after work. I don’t wanna ask Eric nor do I want to ask anyone else because I feel like I’ve bummed to many rides. There’s no point anymore. I might as well just walk home. I’ve had to walk home before, I think it rained that night and I didn’t have my license yet so I would ride my bike to work. That specific night my dad dropped me off because the rain wouldn’t let up earlier in the night for me to bike to work. I asked my buddy Danny if I could get a ride home and he agreed but in the middle of the night he ended up going home early. So guess what I had to do?

Walking home wasn’t fun but shit, If I have to walk home tonight then it’s whatever, I don’t like asking people for stuff, it makes me feel less sufficient.

I swear if I hear one more person project negativity by saying it’s going to be a terrible night I’m gonna explode. Seriously. I cringe when people say “It’s gonna be a shit show!” It’s only going to be a shit show because that’s how you want to view it. Give tonight’s sort a positive outlook and no matter how heavy things get, we’ll be happy and walk out of UPS later tonight with a sigh of relief and egg nog waiting for us at home.

But wait, JAMIL’S opinion doesn’t matter because people never want to take in consideration the books I read.

The longer you steer your eyes towards the indefinite, you’ll lose hope and call for what may seem to be an escape goat.

My efforts of sharing my thoughts have been tainted by clueless souls who feel empowered by social media to cause judgement and blame.

Just remember, they ain’t me and I ain’t them.

YMF.

Peak Week

With super Saturday and Super Sunday behind us, we have finally made it to the home stretch with 4 days to go after tonight. This month alone sure has been a test of patience for many but more of a psychology game to me. For instance, instead of jumping into drama at work, I’ve manage to lay low and survey the scene as it is. People are weird and this job has taught me that more than ever!

Not everyone is who they claim to be. What you see on the outside of most are a facade that is clammered with multiple personalities and backward thinking. That statement is more of a common sense point, but a lot of people are too feeble minded to go to that extent. Did I mention everyone around me is young and that I damn near trained an entire posi? I’ve practically did more learning than working if you ask me.

At this point, I don’t have any complaints other than individuals (like my new hires) who act as if they don’t know what they’re doing or have devious plans up there sleeves. It’s annoying if you ask me.

Overall, looking past the treturous 12 day work week, 2016 is almost over. The worst year since… (*MIKE TYSON SAYINGI DON’T KNOW“*).

AS USUAL…

I’m signing off.
