All of you who were so with the #KONY2012 movement need to be even louder about Trayvon Martin. Until we as a nation show our utter disappointment in the fact that the United States holds no one accountable for injustices unless they can capitalize from the situation then nothing will change.
I have found the root of my true frustration and it is that the Trayvon Martin case is not exceptional . . . he’s a name and a face to all the senseless murders and injustices that occur across our country. His case sheds light on the holes that exists in our country’s justice system. A system that accepts excuses like “she had on a short dress” or allows NYPD to “stop and frisk” young minorities disproportionately or allow hyper-surveillance on mosque or continuously fail our children through poor schooling. If fear is the root of this than people who look like me should be terrified because justice has never been but so just to us .
Gossip is an interesting phenomenon in society. We have whole webpages devoted to it and television shows that put it forth as well as tabloid papers. What is it about gossip that makes people want to talk and know what is going on? I can’t say I have never participated in gossip but I will say I try to avoid it as much as possible.
I have seen first hand how gossip and can hurt and damage another person’s life. What was sad about it was that when those who were putting forth the gossip realized it was harming someone else they didn’t stop they just keep it going and added fuel to the fire. What is that we have to hurt another human being by our actions?
Gossip itself does not help in the advancement of our lives or the lives or others. Gossip can do more damage that it can to help. As a matter of fact I have never heard of gossip helping anyone. I love the quote I heard once that said, ” Gossip is the lowest form of discourse.” instead of gossiping maybe we should reach out and help other people.
Here’s Chris Brown’s new song “Turn Up The Music Remix” featuring Rihanna. It will be interesting to see how people are going to react to these two collaborating together once again. A lot of Rihanna’s fans seem to be upset about it. They also have another song together “Birthday Cake Remix” as well. Rumors are circulating around that videos for both these songs are in the works to come soon.
My question is should people just stop judging and hating on Chris Brown about what happened in the past with Rihanna since she forgave him? Or should they still be mad and bash him?
Personally I love this song as well as the other. As for letting them be, all I have to say is if she can forgive him then we should respect that and let them be!
Feels like it’s been so long. Is life moving so fast in this generation that when we desire something it begins to move in slow motion? Are we just used to getting what we want right away? Or do we require one another to feel right about all that is going on around us? Maybe our anticipation is justified by the fact that we genuinely cannot wait to share a moment again? Either way, your life and mine are scheduled to meet on October 24…I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
See you soon.

Just another day, nothing never really changes. Dee and me went to City Island for some seafood literally to see-food. I’m a big shrimp fan and so is my lady. Wednesday’s are pretty boring days. For me anyway. It’s not a Friday or Saturday where I can go out to a bar and not expect to be the only person in there. Happy Hours are great but then I’ll feel like an old person who has kids and mortgage bills. Who gets up every morning to go to work. Comes home to have nothing but complaints about work. Then tucking kids away to bed. Lastly laying in bed with my spouse and saying ” Have a goodnight BABY… kisses.. MUAH ” then rolling over to the other side. BOOOORINGGGG! right ? Well I’m twenty two years old and I don’t want to be a on freaking time schedule, nor a routine. I want to have fun and lots of it.
So what’s my fun? How do I have fun? Why am I not having fun? Well lets not name the 1,000 things I do in a day. Which completely makes me sick. There always errands to take care of and a rug-rat aka my little sister (who I love dearly) who has to be driven to summer camp everyday for last three months. Boring yet…..?
So what is fun for me? I have no clue. I try to have fun everyday. Whether it’s spending time with the girlfriend, friends, working on my blog, or just trying to tie my shoes. I try to have fun, even if it means being my own entertainment. Today a couple of my good friends who will remain anonymous. Had to share the light on certain individuals which had me pondering. I like a good laugh, do you ? Well the convos my friends were speaking about had me rolling. Just knowing certain things that makes you wonder about certain things or should I say people. HMM…. However some people actually get up in the morning and look themselves in the mirror, and still try to hold some innocence is a little ODD.
Trying to crave another life out of the one your leaving in is epic fail. (repeat 3x) please ! No matter how much you try to change your image to the eyes of others. You are what you are when someone meets you. The first impression is the best but turns out to be the worst. Sorry but that’s what I’m starting to believe. When it comes to people you don’t know.
Moving on….. so I don’t bore you.
