“Here’s my whole thing about it: I hope [the black players] were into white women before they got to Atlanta, and I hope Atlanta didn’t change their minds…”—Bomani Jones, on the Atlanta Thrashers’ relocation to Winnipeg (via kidlion)
since I’m here, why dont I tell you couple how my life is going, ok? ok!:
School is finishing up soon, I should pass the only class I’m taking. I’ve come to grips that I’m going to graduate behind all of my friends my age, and while that fact depresses me, I’m proud of all of them, and hope to achieve what they do soon.
I have a new girlfriend also. her name’s Priya, and she’s awesome. She’s really smart, and really talented, but is too modest to accept your praises, but cocky enough to kid with you….so basically peerless, unless you want to nitpick. Basically, I’m not worthy of her, and she knows it…she says it’s hogwash, but whatever. I’m glad I got a catch.
I tried out for a semi-pro soccer team, and got to the 2nd day of 3 tryout days….didnt make it past that, but I’m proud of myself, because I figured I’d be gone waaaaay before that. my actual league starts in May, and we got Nike to sponsor us for jerseys (swag, swag).
I got another internship at Blue Cross, Blue Shield (And one possibly with a Detroit sports team if I’m lucky), so I’ll be making some bank this summer…to finally buy a car of my own…then graduate….then get out…or just stay, i dont know.
I’ve finally come to terms with myself. No more questioning myself or what my purpose is. no more self deprecating letters to exs who dont care (which makes me not even send the letter). No more sitting on window ledges, wondering if I should just fall out or not. No more trying to fit into people’s days when I realize that they want nothing to do with me…..no more weekly visits to the head doctor. I’ve got a grip on my life and the path I want to steer it down.
I’ve also come to realize “less is more” with most people. So this will be the most ya’ll get outta me.
Gotta get back to this “study time” (listening to music and reading over sports articles)
