Sigh

I’m pretty sure my sister can’t wait to go to college so she can get away from my crazy dad.

HOT CHILI!!!

This is a very good read, made me want to go ahead and order a bottle of her Chili sauce, haha. The reason why I am sharing this is becasue towards the end of the article when they say that the Chinese Government has been urging her to go public with the company, she has refused stating that an IPO is just a way of tricking people out of their money.

I recently just invested in stocks and growing up as a child, dreaming of investing and making millions in the stock market, it’s not what it may seem. You really got to keep track of what’s going on. It’s literally a gamble which in return seems like I’m getting tricked out of my money. I guess I’ll learn someday.

Chinese netizens have crowned Tao Huabi, a 70-year-old granny, the “hottest woman in China.” Tao Huabi an her pricey red Bentley. Aside from being a trending topic in China, Tao also happens to be the founder of Laoganma Special Flavour Foodstuffs Co., maker of the nation’s most popular chili sauce. Interest in her has grown…

Congrats Chance!

I must say, this is very inspiring for an artist like me. He has no major label backing him, yet he has a large fanbase and a business model that is currently being tried and tested. I myself have this same goal in mind, being independent and not relying on a major label to push my across the globe as an artist. If Chance can do it why can’t I?

So as I write this I want everyone to know that I, Afrodamus will become the hip-hop mogul that this industry needs. I will become the very root of where inspiration and changing lives will thrive from. I will succeed no matter what and I will make my dream come into fruition and be of this reality.

Just watch.

 

After earning accolades for Best New Artist, Rap Album, and Rap Performance, Chance the Rapper gave the Grammys exactly what it needed with a rousing, soulful performance in support of his hip-hop opus, Coloring Book. On a night riddled with awkwardness and technical errors, the 23-year-old Chicago rapper took it upon himself to turn the awards show into his own…

Trump is gonna build a wall that will be broken like Berlin.

sk070615dapr_2

Like the rest of the logical thinking Americans here in the US, I oppose the wall that President Trump wants to build. I’ve heard people say time and time again how much of a great idea this would be but honestly it makes no sense. Yes, people from mexico cross the border every day entering this country illegally but really, do you think a large wall is going to stop them from coming over? Plus did you folks not hear about how some of the wall will just be fence? So in essence, that amazing wall that this dumbass in office plans to build really isn’t going to stop or change anything.

What really rubs me the wrong way about Trumps “Wall” is the fact that he claims that Mexico will pay for it. … Now if that isn’t complete utter bullshit than I don’t know what is. That’s like Canada building a wall and telling us to pay for it. I bet y’all would get really pissed about that huh? Talk about a double standard.

Now for those of you that are cursing at your phone or computer screen, telling me to go to hell, that is fine. I accept the fact that you are blinded by a false dream that America will be great again, but to be honest, in order to be “Great Again,” you have to acknowledge that America isn’t in the best shape. You have to acknowledge that the version of America that you want isn’t coming back. You have to realize that Millennials and Generation Z will overthrow the old heads in office because the predicament that we are in right now isn’t going to be changed by some unqualified, fascist president who think that bringing warehouse work back to America is going to change the future.

As always…

I practice Buddhism now.

We have managed to make it to the second month of the new year without any problems other than Donald Trump signing away on a bunch of bullshit. Right now in this very moment that is besides the point that I’m trying to get it. Where I want to take you guys is on a journey, a journey into a realm full of love and prosperity. A journey on how we can step back and realize our full potential and use it to the fullest…

Okay no not really.

I became buddhist last month. Ever since the second week of January I have been mediating without skipping a day other than the weekends. Personally, I have been wanting to meditate for some years now ever since I learned about the pineal gland and the wonderful stories behind it. Now that I have made it a goal to meditate until I reach enlightenment, I feel as if I took in a fresh breathe air in this current lifetime. I no longer feel stranded or alone anymore. I can’t say that those feelings are totally gone, but I have better control of them.

Through the teachings of the Buddha and daily meditation practice, my life is no longer that dead end trail that I have always envisioned it as. I mean like the rest of the humans that wander around this world, my mind is full of questions, especially when I first came into this world. I have a ton of odd memories and dreams that I had as a young child that I need answers too. At the same time I have a wild mind that runs loose whenever a thought or strong emotion rolls in. With the Buddha’s teachings at hand, I now have the tools needed to quiet my mind and live more in the present. I can be more kind and learn to love myself and then others. There’s just soo much that I have to learn and I am so eager to digest it all.

I literally just started this path so I’ll have to continue pushing forward and see how far I can go. Matter of fact, it’s not “how far I can go” but how good of a person I can and will become by following this path.

I’m very excited.

In the meantime as I study more about Buddhism and how to be a dharmic person, I’ll keep you folks updated.

lets not get political and just laugh

The video below is from a Waka Flocka concert. For the readers who don’t listen to rap as much as I do, he’s gotten better. haha But anyways can we just drop the political shit for a moment and laugh at the fact that he wiped his arse with a shirt from somebody in the crowd? This seriously has to be the best thing I’ve seen all of 2017. haha

This will go one of two ways: either Trump rage tweets about the video as a way to distract from whatever scandal tomorrow brings, or he appoints Waka Flocka Flame as the new secretary for Health and Human Services, citing the rapper as a shining example for personal hygiene. A fan showed @WakaFlocka a trump jersey…

Hey Google, just do what Apple did!

631066318.jpg

For anyone who whos an Android device, you may or may not have heard about Google Allo. Google Allo is a smart messaging app that is practically like iMessage, WhatsApp, and Kik. The only difference with Allo is the taste of Android. Whether you have used it or not, there really isn’t much dazzle to it. I mean hell, the only awesome feature I found was the Google AI integration. Other than that, it’s just a knock off of what other tech companies have to offer.

In all honestly, the App is clean shaven and runs flawless. I recently purchased a Google Pixel and ever since going back I don’t think I want to return to iPhone. (lol I’m just kidding) Seriously though, Google Allo has been gaining slow momentum. The app recently reached 10 million installs after its first 3 months out but why should we really be concerned with that? Why doesn’t Google just take the route that Apple did and have the app pre-installed and set as the preferred texting app instead of that messenger crap. I get that shit confused with facebook messenger a lot which screws me up everytime I share something and I get the display of apps to choose from.

The fact of the matter is, if Google really wanted to take Allo to new heights, they should make it the prefered texting app on all android devices. Going back to Apple; they created iMessage and made a universal messenger that developed a secret community among iPhone users while categorizing everyone else as SMS. I strongly suggest that Google should take this approach. I mean hell, if you’re gonna copy the “familiarity of an iPhone” with the Google Pixel, at least try some of Apple’s other ideas.

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.

Unread facebook Post pt. 2

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.
