Spring Break 08

It has definitely been a minute since I blogged but I have returned and have a lot to share.

Finals were stressful as all get out. I had projects, take home finals, regular finals, and papers due in 3 days. I was stressed. I thought my hair would fall out I was so stressed. I almost cussed out my Hinduism professor. He had the nerve to try and restrict me going to the bathroom. Now never in the history of... cant use the word I wanted to use... college did I ever ask to use the restroom. He actually threw a fit. I sat there though. The Baltimore was about to come out of me and I was going to go Juggernaut on that ass. But I just kept taking my test. But I made it and came home Wednesday.

This break is exciting!! I have found a job!! I will be teaching at a small Catholic school named St. Ignatius Loyola Academy. I am soooooo I excited. It is a small private Catholic middle school for impoverished males in Baltimore. Cnel and I actually attended this school for our middle school years. This is where we met. But I am really glad to have found post-graduation work.

I have not really done anything fun this break. I just have been resting. I really really just needed to chill. So I have been hiding out in my house. It is what I do.

I also had to take care of some health issues. I sleepwalk, also known as non-REM parasomnia. It is serious. I have grabbed and punched my girlfriend in my sleep. I have found myself in the living room after falling asleep in my bedroom. I am not worried though; there is a simple solution. More sleep at an earlier time The sleep specialist told me that I need to get to sleep earlier. I cannot deprive myself of sleep at all. He was worried because I have had violent episodes. So I have to go back and secure my apartment. Keep cords off the middle of the floor, no sharp objects in reach, lock windows etc. The specialist said imagine a 2 year old with a 21 year old strength. If the change in my sleep pattern does not make it better, I have to take meds for it.

I am not worried at all. I did a sleep study which was fun. They hooked me up to these machines in a sleep lab last night. Then asked me some questions and I went to sleep. It was especially easy because I was tired. Then I woke up, they unhooked me, I took a shower, then left. It was easy peezy.

Other than that, my health is good, my life is good, I cannot complain. Talk to you all later.

On This Valentine's Day...

Ladies and gentleman, I now have a girlfriend.

It is weird. I knew this would happen. The lucky young lady is someone I have been seeing since Texas(you can look for the entry yourselves. i feel lazy). We both went to field school together. That is where our innocent flirtation started.

I did not think we would ever get together. I asked her and she told me to wait. I was getting impatient and I was about to cut her off. We got into it about 2 weeks ago and I was about to drop her. I felt that she was taking too long. Come to find out she has been planning this for a month now. I am glad that I waited lol.

She kicked me out of my apartment for two hours. She fixed a nice dinner. So I came in and there were candles everywhere with the table set. Some nice wine was being served. We had dinner together. Then, we had dessert which was a chocolate mousse topped with raspberries. After dessert she handed me a box. In the box was the note asking me to be her boyfriend. It si what I wanted to I said yeah. So now I have a single leading lady. This may take some time getting used to this. It has been awhile...

Yes We Can

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.

Yes we can.

It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom.

Yes we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.

Yes we can.

It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballots; a President who chose the moon as our new frontier; and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.

Yes we can to justice and equality.

Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.

Yes we can heal this nation.

Yes we can repair this world.

Yes we can.

We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.

We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics...they will only grow louder and more dissonant ........... We've been asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.

But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.

Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America; that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea --

Yes. We. Can.

Wal-mart Love

To all ma ladies in the dance
I don't even know your name
Little woman I don't even know your age
But there's something about you girl
When I see you wining in front the stage
Please forgive me, please excuse me
But there's nothing else that a man can do
I can't help myself little woman
I just need to be next to you

Rupee - Tempted To Touch

I step into the self-checkout line at Wal-mart with my ice cream and Pringles. The lady in front of me seems to be struggling using the checkout. So I look around at the other lines, wondering which one I should go to. While I am looking to my left I feel a small hand touch my right shoulder.

I turn around and see a small woman who looked no older than 22. She is about 5'3, with a complexion that reminds me of Nia Long. A smile gracefully moved across her face. Her hair was about shoulder length. She was wearing a Wal-mart shirt that was well-fitting for her upper body. Her hips were mesmerizing with "assets" that would surprise someone because of how small she was.

"I can help you up here," she said. I just nodded and followed her. I kept staring at her as she walked. She walked with confidence.

" I am not suppose to do this but I feel bad. I do not want you waiting forever for the lady to finish. I get exhausted looking at her," she said this and then smiled.

"I would like to thank you," I stammered as I kept looking at her lips. I was losing focus and getting nervous.

" I like your hair," she smiled at me again. I could not say anything. So I stuttered, "Thanks"

She took my items and rang them up, "$4.70 is your total". I handed her the money. She took the money out of my hand a little oddly. It was if she wanted to touch me. As she gave me the change, she touched the center of my palm. I felt myself get a little more nervous.

I then got courageous enough to say something other than thanks, "I feel bad that you are working during the Super Bowl. You should be watching the game."

"I know! If I was not here I would definitely watching the game with a friend." She said this and winked at me. I stood there, still staring at her with a smile.

"Tell them to give you raise! Take care!" I said this as I was walking away. In my mind I was debating whether or not I should ask for her number and name. I found her attractive. She seemed nice. She was giving me signals...

I kept it moving. I was too afraid to approach.
