My First 'Random Thoughts' Post

For the first time since I've had this blog (which has been about six months now), I decided to post random thoughts. I don't know why, but I don't particularly like to write just random thoughts on my blog. Whenever I post, I usually think about it for a day or two to gather my thoughts, then start typing it up. If it's a really in-depth post, like discussing my parents, I type up a draft, leave it alone, then come back to it to make sure all the details I want are all in there. But hell, I haven't posted in about a month, so this is a good way to update my shit lol. Here goes....

* I haven't told a lot of people from my church (cause the people are nosy as hell), but I told this one chick that goes to my church that I'm mad cool with that I was gonna be moving out of my aunt and uncle's house. She tried to convince me otherwise by telling me how hard it is, and if I have credit card debt, then I shouldn't move at this time. (Maybe because she's goin through hard times living by herself.) Shit, I'll be 30 years old soon. How much longer do I wait? And besides, I know it's gonna be hard cause life period is hard. My credit card debt is not going away any time soon. I will always owe somebody some money, so I'm definitely payin that no mind at all. Her situation has nothin to do with me. But I believe it's different for a man to be living at home at a certain age than a woman. I know another girl from my church that's 32 and still living at home. And she's cool with it. Not me. The way I see it, the longer I stay home, the more less of a man I feel. I feel like I'm stifling my growth by staying here and I need to spread my fuckin wings. The time is overdue!

* Yesterday I told my uncle that I will be moving very soon. He just nodded his head in agreement. Of course the real reaction from him will be when I finally do move out, and only he and his wife will be responsible for all the house bills. But that's not my problem nor my responsibility. I didn't make the decision to move and get a 4 BR house. I gots to go!

* Today, while on my commute, I was bombarded with screaming Giants fans on both the NJ Transit train and the PATH train, all on their way to the parade. The PATH train was a lot worse cause the black folk were on there screaming, and I'm pretty sure a few were drunk as hell. By the way one dude was holding the plastic bag, I can tell by the shape of the bottle that it was either Hennessey or E&J, and he was poring it into a cup. Damn! They're gettin drunk already, I was thinkin to myself. Mind you, it was only about 10:30 in the morning. But I bet very few of em got their asses up to vote! I can tell by one of them screaming out, "Eli Manning for President!" Sad. It's obvious where the priorities are for some of our people.

* I still don't know what the hell I wanna do for my 30th. Half of me wants a full-fledged party (cause 30 is such a milestone), but half of me just wants a simple dinner. I half-jokingly (but kinda seriously) asked my friend from Jersey City if he can help me plan it. I think he's trying to help me lol, but I'll see. He said if his apartment were bigger I could have it there. Oh well. I have 39 more days and counting til the big day.

That's all the random thoughts I have for now.

I agree with damnit...its time for you to move and it has nothing to do with age.

As far as your birthday, its a milestone age but I have no suggestions. Wish I was working so I could help with the planning.

I cant believe Im giving advice on moving, lol...

I thought that me leaving my mom's house two years ago was going to be hard. Sure the rent wasn't going to be a lot, but I am not at a big job either.

Financially it always works out.

But just being out my house is such a great freedom! It is like you can't tell me nothing! I can express myself anyway I want to, why? I pay the bills here!

The greatest feeling, trust me!

and have a party!

As longs as you budget and stay within it, you will be fine. You may have to live a block down from the projects (exaggeration but you know what I mean) but it will be your own and there's nothing like it.

My birthday was yesterday, so have a party for all aquarius. lol

I am a fan of having one's own, at the same time I am a fan of being prepared. Don't move too soon and make sure all of your bases are covered!

The Path was a mess on Monday and Tuesday! Foolishness!

I do so hate delayed reactions! Tell Unc Unc to get it together! He needs to prepare himself cause, just in case you thought I was playin, I'm serious!!!

30 is big, lets, make it happen! Whatever you wanna do, give me some notice! If you want some help, we can feed some ideas off of each other. My B-Day jam is coming up!

April 4, 5, 6 Ya'll look out!!!

Random posts are cool, don't over use them. Move out boy, Its way past due! Damn scrub, get out on your own and be you!

Jersey Brotha said...

LOL @ Ailed. You like callin dudes scrubs, don't you? I am far from that. You ASS-ume too much.

ThisMightBeMe said...

Don't feel bad about your living situation. You know when it's time to move on and you said it best, "Life is hard period". Best wishe and Stay blessed.

Mr. Jones said...

Regarding your 30th, have a full-fledged all out...dinner. Scout a really nice venue, invite your closest friends/family or whomever, have them dress up, have wine and campaign...it could be nice.

A 30th shouldn't be too wild and crazy anyway. Just my thoughts...

Trackstar said...
