Looking at all these degree programs and having trouble buying into one.
No matter how much you try to act like you don’t care, it always eats away at you.
Frappes always make my day better. Too bad there are no Starbucks arounds. Def better than McDonalds.
When I hit that fan, I definitely enjoyed it — until that fine came down. That $3 million I lost killed me. It brought me back to reality because I could have lost my job. It was wild because it had never been done before. And it will never happen again so, yeah, adrenaline was flowing. How many people can say that they’ve punched a fan? Do you know all the stuff that they say to us? The racist stuff they say to us? We get the N-word and people talking about our wives and family. Just because we make a lot of money we’re supposed to be the bigger person? Fans tell us that our kids are ugly and that they should have thrown our mothers in jail for having us. That’s not disrespectful? I’ve been in a lot of fights and done some things I shouldn’t have done, but I’ve never sold drugs or been locked up, so for people to think that way about me isn’t right. They had life-size posters of me in Utah with me behind bars. Before the situation with Jamaal Tinsley, I had never been in jail, and I’m from the projects!

Funny thing is, I’m not mad about anything that has happened. I just wish I knew why. I tried to do the right and it didn’t even come close to working. You’re always so bitter and I was just trying to spare you the grief that comes from being with me. You’re so stubborn and you always just think I’m full of shit. It gets to the point where people think I’m incapable of doing the right thing. All I wanted was to have a legitimate friendship. I guess that’s an impossibility sometimes. Crazy how you can seem to go through so much with one person and suddenly you treat them like a stranger. Impossible to eliminate their presence from your mind though.
I really need to get my sleep schedule back in order. This staying up until 6 a.m. every night is no good. Then again, neither is writing to myself. Lol, ohhh well.

These obscurities and absurdities, never seem to worry me.
Change, obviously doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a long, meticulous process. I like to think that given enough dedication and willingness, anybody can change themselves for the better.
