1. Finally found a job.  Where at? I’m not saying lol  The reason why I would get in trouble with my other job is because they kept reading some of the things i would put on here.  So yeah, not mentioning it. I will say that it is in loss prevention and that the money is not too bad.  They actually gave me the salary that i was looking for.

2.  I’m back in school mode. I want to bust my ass and get the shit done and move on.  I did fail my last term but that is my fault and my fault only.  I just didn’t care.  Now though, new job, new way of thinking.  It’s going to be hard down the stretch, but well worth it.  Or so I’ve been told.

3.  A girl that i know has to move out of the place she is renting due to it being sold.  She has nowhere to go and that sucks.  I know first hand how that it is.  I went from the military, to living with my Aunt, to my dads, to my sisters basement to my mother in laws basement to where I am now.  I wish I could help her.  I do have an extra room in my apartment, but I know my wife wouldn’t go for it.  Not saying she would be wrong to say no, just saying i know how it is to have to wonder what else can go wrong.

4. Freddie Gray, of course I was going to go there.  Freddie was arrested for…well that’s the thing, we really don’t know. Speculation is, is that he ran because of his record.  He was caught, put in the police van and transported. A few witnesses say that he was complaining of his leg hurting when being taken away.  This however does not explain how a guy who complained of a hurt leg, ended up dead due to spinal injuries.

4.5   It’s funny to me in a sad way that this man’s rap sheet has been released, as if it brings justification to his death. Does it really matter?  He could of had 40 arrest, or 0.  What does matter is how you go from living to dead while in custody.  This leads me to Baltimore where some call it protest, while others call it riots. I’m all for protesting, as long as it is done peacefully.  The problem that we have in Baltimore is that the media only picked up on the highschool aged “protesters” who ended up rioting.  11053469_10205453155140541_6729628925779625340_n 11169892_10205453160620678_285763273448683240_nThe difference between these pics are that in the 60’s there was a bond in the community. They fought for the love and respect of each other. Today though, these fucktards do what they do because they know a camera is watching them and society has glorified being a thug…or as i like to call it “being a fucking idiot”.

5. “All they are doing is destroying their own community.”  When you don’t have self worth for yourself, you can’t have it for your community.  If you live in poverty and cant purchase and enjoy the things that are being shown in the window fronts of these businesses, of course you’re not going to care about them.  A majority of these business are white owned, and unfortunately there is no connection to them. Yes, they are burning down a community, but it’s the community that has feed off of them.   Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s dumb as hell to burn down your own community, but there is a reason behind it.

6. Why don’t they protest black on black crime?  That’s easy, the media cold give two shit about that.

7.  We don’t have to worry about ISIS destroying us, just ourselves.

First things first, can mother nature make up her mind as to what season she want’s to bless us with?

1. People who wear headphones while driving are dumb.  Personally, when I wear mine, I have them turned up loud.  If I were to wear them while driving, how would I be able to hear an ambulance or police car?

2. Job interview today was awesome.  I’m not having a big head, but i feel confident on how I did.  We’ll see though if i get an offer.  Interestingly, the lady who interviewed me, said that i should not accept a salary that I’m not comfortable with. I need to counter if its not what i think i deserve.  On the outside I had on my poker face, on the inside i was like… wait what…for reals?

3. Even with my interview this morning, I had to stay up to see the Blackhawks win in the 3rd OT last night. .  I finally got home about 2am.  That’s what being a Hawks fan is all about.

4. If any of my nieces dressed like this girl who just came into Starbucks, I’d have to beat their asses.  Seriously, I’ve seen more clothes at a nudist beach.

5. I just found out a half hour ago that the Undertaker is supposed to be at Wizard Con Chicago in August when i go.  This grown man is going to have tear when I meet him.  Talk about a childhood idol.  undertaker2_5-1403510477

6. Whitney Houston is coming up on her 4 year sobriety chip.

Yes, it has been a long while since I’ve posted.  As usual I’m sitting in Starbucks drinking my cool lime refresher.  For some strange reason the Starbucks on Kimberly doesn’t make it as good as the one in Moline.  Lets get started with Things on My Mind…

1.  Jobs-  I have an interview tomorrow 4/22 and on Thursday.  I’m done with this bouncing from job to job shit.  I’m going full career mode.  I have so much respect for those that have stayed with one job for 10+ years.  I read somewhere that generation millennials go through jobs like underwear.  I’m a part of generation X by one year, but I’m on that millennial bandwagon.  Since I know how anal some of you can be, I’m not saying ALL millennials job hop.

2. School- This term sucked.  I gave up and I didn’t even have a reason to.  I think with not working, stressed, and depressed, my heart wasn’t in it.  I know this is straight up bullshit, since I wasn’t working you would think I could spend all my time on school.  Now I have to bust ass to still be able to graduate on time in December.

3.  Kids-  For some reason kids have been brought up to me numerous times these past few days.  “when are you guys going to have kids?” “Don’t you want kids?” “You guys should have three kids by now.”  I mean damn, you wouldn’t ask a blind person why they don’t own a mirror would you?  Do I wish I had kids? Of course I do.  My wife and I would be great parents.  I told my wife from the day we started dating, if I don’t have kids by the time I’m 35, I’m done.  I don’t want to be the old dad to a young kid.  My father and I are 20 years apart.  I have enough nieces and nephews to spoil like they were my own kids.

4.  I’ve been a WWF/WWE fan since I was a kid.  I can remember the excited I felt when my dad took me to my first event at Palmer Auditorium in Davenport, IA.  It was the first time I saw Macho Man Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth.  I went to my first PPV, Payback, in chicago and took my dad.  It was exciting to have this moment with him.  Well, this sunday I’m taking my 9 year old nephew to his first PPV, Extreme Rules. I can’t wait to see the look on his face Saturday (his birthday) when he finds out he is going.
