I made a comment on facebook to my mom about her and my dad getting me Slipknot tickets for Cedar Rapids concert.  Well, last night my dad said, hey we got you an early birthday present. Yep, two tickets to see Slipknot with Hatebreed.  I just saw Slipknot back in Nov and I said I would love to see them again, it was such an awesome concert.  This time though, as i stated, they will be with Hatebreed and not Korn. I was not too familiar with Hatebreed so today, while filling out applications, I have been listening to them via youtube.  They have a heavy sound to them which I love so it should be a pretty good show.  Needless to say, i’m very excited to see them again and thankful to my parents for the early birthday gift.

Of course I’m at Starbucks and this peach tranquility tea I just bought smells amazing.  Usually I order my teas online.  San Benito is the name of the company  and their peach teas are awesome.  I first had the when I was stationed in Kuwait. They are based out of Italy, so when i place the order online I always try to find a distributor here in the US.  Funny thing is, I pay more for the damn shipping than I do for the tea itself.

I had a job interview the other day for a detention officer for the state of IA. I am looking more for a job where I can use my business admin bachelor’s degree.  Don’t get me wrong, the detention officer job would be great, but I’m kind of tired of being in the babysitter role. Plus, I think about being married now and I don’t want her to have to worry about me.

Superbowl is this weekend.  Seattle over New England 35-24

So…it’s 0157 in the morning.  Why am I up? No clue.  Friday at work was a day from hell.  I kind of feel bad for the kids because i know that my correctional officer attitude was kicking in.  I have to remind myself that these kids are here for a reason and we are there because regular school doesn’t help.

I have a lot that I want to type, but my mind is going in different directions.  I guess I’ll start with Mike “Hands up dont shoot” Brown vs Eric “I can’t breath” Garner.  When it comes to Mike, I can’t feel bad for the guy.  If you try to attack a cop..you’re gonna have a bad time.  Plan and simple…if  you don’t wanna get shot, do what the officer says.  Of course you want to think that the officer would have used non lethal alternatives, but I wasn’t in that officers shoes. People now think they are forensic experts and law professors, due to them watching a few episodes of Law & Order SVU or CSI Miami.  I watched ER and Grey’s Anatomy, that doesn’t make me a doctor.  Science proves that Mike Brown attacked that officer, that should be it.  Ironically, had Brown just put his damn hands up in the first place, he’d probably still be here.  Now on to Eric Garner.  Have you ever “choked” on a piece of food and started coughing bad to get it up.  Well then, if you’re breathing enough to cough, you ain’t choking.  Same principle applies here.  Eric kept saying ” I can’t breath”.  If I was that officer, I’d think “if you’re talking, you can breath”. I will say that I do feel bad for Eric, the officer should have taken that saying into consideration and perhaps tried a different position.   The problem that I have right now is that 99% of police officers are good people, but goddamn it, for some reason that 1% can’t get out of the damn spotlight.  Another problem I have is President Obama putting his two cents in.  I understand that being black, he probably feels the pressure to say something. However, let’s talk about the black on black crime we have going on too, not just the white/black crap.  Hell, another part of the problem are the fkn idiots that want to try to provoke an officer, just so they can record their reaction.  Unfortunately in today’s world the cell phone camera is as dangerous as a gun.  I don’t know if it was that my father was a sheriff’s deputy, or my two uncles are officers, or that I was law enforcement in the military but if you don’t listen to an officers orders and are a threat or you try to attack an officer, then you deserve to get your ass shot.

GoldsberryI’m a Bulls fan for life, but this ignorant motherfkr here is on my last nerve.  As you can see, Rose is wearing an “I can’t breath” shirt to support Eric Garner.  What Rose should be wearing is a shirt that says ” I can’t play”.  If I was the GM, I’d fine him close to $100,000 for wearing that.  But of course nobody with power within the Bulls is going to say shit because they don’t want to be viewed as racist.

Racist…I hate the fkn word.  It’s not racist if it’s true, that’s called facts.  People throw that damn word around like it’s a frisbee. One of my students called another student racist and I just look at him and said “you know, you’re generation is wearing that word out like an old pair of shoes”.  He didn’t get it…

Let’s change the subject…got this awesome shirt today.1476064_918408798178524_2416612494481100991_n

Well, I have more to write but I’ll do it tomorrow/today depending on how you look at it.
