There have been 3 different times this year at Heine Bros where they have played one of my favorite songs over the speakers in the shop.
The first was The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson. The second was Lava Lamp by Thundercat. The third is the one currently playing which is Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix.
It just makes me happy when I can sit down and not have to pop in headphone to set the tone right. These new baristas got good taste in music. If I worked in here it would be lit as fuck. Depending on what shift I would be on would depict what album or station I would be on. The day of the week also is a benefactor as well.
A day like today would be good for some Lo-Fi tunes. Tomorrow (Wed.) is totally Thundercat, although I would play him in the evenings. Thursday is like a mixture of whatever and Friday I would have to settle with some Big K.R.I.T. My weekends would consist of a lot of Ab-Soul and Black Hippy shit with SiR’s November Album jumping in here and there.
I do have to keep in mind that whatever I play has to be edited… Unless I’m closing up haha. But that’s just an idea for a job that I don’t have. If I were to become a Barista at Heine Bros I would like to be the manager of the Aux Cord. 😁

Ps. I’m pretty sure their listening to Pandora. Haha
I can never really stick with anything, kind of like this blog. I told myself that I would hop on here daily or at least monthly and make a post but it seems to have not happened. As of recent I spend my days on tumblr reblogging random shit that I find scrolling up on my timeline.
What a way to enjoy life eh?
So as an attempt to get away from the comforts of my room, I made a trip to Heine Brothers, the coffee shop where I just so happen to make cool ass memories at. The sun is setting and my coffee is scalding hot. Might I mention that it’s 82 outside? I was out skating earlier but my skate session was cut short due to some guy who works in one of the buildings at this business complex came out to practice his golf swing. The last time I was skating in that area I think I may have pissed him off by the popping off my loud board as I flipped my deck to land some gnarly shit. Anywho, in respect I left because I’m pretty sure he had a long day at work and just wanted to swing his golf club in silence.
Besides the shenanigans of my everyday life, I just dropped a new single on Soundcloud. You should check it out.
I’m signing off for now, my brain is drawing a blank.

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’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.

Im buying my own coffee machine and setting it in my room so all I have to worry about is making myself a pot of coffee. I’m tired of waking up every single day to find that nobody in the house has made coffee. So to solve this problem I have purchased a mini Keurig to place on top of my dresser so I can hop up and press the brew button.
Well here I am once again in my favorite shop Heine Bros. Got my cup of tea steeping and some sandwich I picked up from the freezer. It’s a mellow day… Yes a mellow day and if you were expecting me to talk dirt trash about the people I see in here you a WRONG!
Okay maybe I lied a little, but there’s this…. Hahaha nah I won’t even say it. But man I miss coming in here for my weekly cup of tea. Like I was telling my buddy Thomas that works at the register, I got sick about a month ago and just stayed in the hood for a few weeks. Then when I got better the break booster went out on my moms car so driving was a disaster.
Now that everything is back in place in trying to get back on my daily routines like going to my favorite coffee shop more often. The past two or three times I have been showing up I’ve seen some new faces. I usually get nervous when I see new people because I don’t know them but it just opens up a new opportunity to meet new people.
My tea and sandwich have arrived so I’m going to delve into the goods. Have a nice day word pressers or random internet trollers!
Okay so check it. I’m sitting by the window in Heine Bros and right outside there is a table with an old lady sitting there. I low-key feel like she’s reading what I’m typing right now, so if she is… Hello! haha
Anyways today is my moms birthday so Happy Birthday mom!
I don’t plan on staying long because I need to head home and attend to some other stuff that is important so here is a brief over view of whats going on. RIGHT in front of me is a tall white lady and a SUPEr tall Indian guy talking business. They’re not as interesting though as the pretty ladies sitting outside talking about who knows what.
But never mind that.
