Today was a chill day. My wife had some kind of homecoming deal at her school (Western Illinois), so i just stayed home and played NHL 15. The only serious decision i had to make was whether I was going to go to Mariachis (local mexican restaurant) for lunch. Well, like a dumbass I settled for Rudy’s Tacos. Rudy’s is to mexican food what Olive Garden is to italian food. It is what it is.
So after forcing myself to eat Rudy’s, which taste a lot better at 3am when you’re drunk, I decided to head over to Starbucks. When i arrived, I was fairly excited to see that only two cars were in the parking lot. I headed in to see only one person at a table reading a newspaper. My thought, sweeeet..full wifi for me. But of course the wifi gods were around the corning laughing at me, because as soon as i sat down, about 7 people came in with there fkn laptops or tablets. The only thing I could do was try to open a page and watch the little hourglass spin around..and around..and around.
You know what really just irritates me? When it is freaking cold outside and people come out bundled up, while their kids are in shorts or sandals with no jacket. You ignorant shits, make sure your kids are clothed and warm before yourself.
The school that I work at is a therapeutic school, with kids that are autistic and or have behavioral issues. The ages range from 6 to 16. When we first opened, I joked about playing Gangsta’s Paradise by Coolio as I walk down the hallways. Anyways, these kids are a product of their environment. I use that term lightly, because you can always change your way of thinking. These kids have not only their family name against them,but also the system. When you are 14 years old, you shouldn’t be tasked with having to raise your two little brothers and be expected to put food on the table. This kids mother broke his jaw which he had to have wired shut, along with taking his SSI money and using it for drugs. He is a sophomore that reads at a 3rd grade level, and his math skills are the same. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated problem with just one kid. This is happening to children across the United States. I want to have some hope and think he will be able to overcome and be successful, but I think he might be too far in the system. Again, I don’t blame these kids, I blame our government. Look at what the Department of Defense spent in FY2014, $501.73 billion..now look where else that could have went and we still could have had 355 billion left over.
On a totally different subject, I wish Slipknot would go back to their IOWA days and bring back the metal that earned them fans..or maggots I should say. Alright folks, I’m out.
Ps…. Spoiler Alert, Paul Walker dies in the 7th film.
