Can see it in your eyes, you look for trouble

Just because they fuck you girl, don’t mean them niggas love you

Rebelution - Closer I Get

Whatever happened to the good times?

We should create for ourselves, not rely on

They’ll never get a hold of me

Simple you see, simplicity

She’s a star if I’ve ever seen one

A perfect ten, and Lord knows that I need one

So now I’m under, pressure, I want it, bad

She got something, I never, had

'Tis The Season

October 10th… My junior year of college is already a month in and I feel as though I’m so out of sorts. Normally that’d sound bad, but I really don’t see it like that. To simplify things, I’m in college. I have a part time job, family and friends, and a mindset geared towards the future. Some of that might seem cliche, but while they sound corny and tacky, they’re not false or fictitious. I’m taking a couple courses that have me questioning the system of education but regardless, I know I have to buckle down and maintain some focus, despite wanting to make some points in class. I’ll be good though. I promise.

Outside school, life is life man. I’ve reached some goals in the gym I’m happy ‘bout and I’m making just enough coin to pay the bills and live like your average 20 year old. For years now I’ve thought about doing something outgoing. I’ve always enjoyed travelling, and mentioned road trips to friends before. Unfortunately, a lot of the talk with friends is just that; talk. I’ve come to a conclusion though… I’m setting out. One of my friends is in the process of buying a beat down RV. I’m jealous as all hell. I’ve talked to my mom about the idea and it was immediately shot down. Again by my father. My brothers laugh and some friends are with it, but in all honesty I don’t think it will matter much. I’m inspired by MTV’s The Buried Life. I see it as a total win-win situation. I wonder sometimes how I’d be remembered if my time ran up at any given moment. Money means nothing to me, although I’ll fully admit that growing up I envied those with lavish material things. I never became possessed, or had that as a main focus though, and I’m glad.

I want to make a difference. A change. A lasting impression. People can live their lives however they want to, and a lot of the people I know well are generally happy people. I’ve been blessed with all that I’ve got and everyone is guilty of taking commodities for granted, but I have a mission within myself to give to those in need. Along my journey (of which doesn’t have set destinations yet), I want to meet and help people that are less fortunate than the life I’m so grateful for having. If I can turn around just one person’s day, week, month, year, etc. I would be a winner. I’d die a happy man. I love politeness and appreciation. Even if its just holding a door for three seconds so that the woman with her hands full can enter a room or building without struggle. I look for it. Its fun. Knowing that for that split second you saved someone from doing something strenuous or disrupting.

This blog entry is kind of a rambling, but I’m with it. I seek no responses rather a note to myself reminding me I have a task ahead. I’m gonna leave this with a toast of my water bottle; to nights on the road and a path unknown.

Elle Varner ft. J. Cole - Only Wanna Give It To You

Get a crib with a view

Lay up in the bed, make a kid, maybe two

All my ex-girlfriends gon’ have to get a clue

Because them rumors that you heard about is true

I said I only wanna give it to you
