Whooo lawd! This semester has damn near pushed me over the edge: The car trouble, the issues in my math class, the two car accidents (which were very minor Thank God), the drama I had to deal with at home, and then being without a car for damn near the entire second half of the semester...it was hell. But luckily I have angels surrounding me and so much positivity from other people surrounding me that it is almost impossible for me to fail, or at least it felt like it. Usually I write about everything else going on with me through story form and things like that, but not this time. I must tell everybody about these amazing people that have come into my life this semester. First things first, I wanna thank my family for being there for me all semester pushing me and pushing me keeping me on the right track and making sure I had what I needed to succeed, and all the tough love you guys showed me when needed, because I know I am not always easiest person to tell off. It all started back in the summer when my homey Fred, who I went to high school and worked with over the summer with at the Library of Congress said that he would help me out with finding a place to stay. Unfortunately, that didn't work out since everything was so last minute, but luckily I bought a car the week before the semester started. If it is any lesson I learned this semester, is you get what you pay for, and having a car is an investment where the more you put into it, the more you out of it. Just don't tell the people who make crappy ass American cars in Detroit that; they charge an arm and a leg for a car and all you get is something that is less durable than a pinky finger with no cartilage. My car had damage, got damaged more, bullshitted with the insurance company, then they damaged by pockets...bye bye awesomely handsome refund check. I met Brittanie, who I had been cool with all Summer via Twitter and BBM who went to my new school, Towson University, and on teh first day of class I met her and her friends. They were all so nice and inviting, and they continued to show that same type of amazingness throughout the whole semester. But anyway, me and mom had our issue, I lost my job, and had to find a place to stay or I was going to miss classes and possibly fail courses. I hit Fred up, and told him my situation, at first he said that he and his roommates already had an issue with people staying over, so at the time his answer was no. The about ten minutes later he called and said that he and his roommates talked it out and gave me the okay to stay over. I would like to thank my Padonia Boys Fred, Braulio, and Greg for letting me stay for so long, what was supposed to turn into a week, turned into damn near two months. At times I felt like I was cramping their style, but nonetheless they not once let it show and let me stay there as if I were one of their own and I love and appreciate them for that. In between my time at Padonia and school, Brittanie (@IAmDruggz) said that I could stay over their place for a few days from time to time if I ever needed to. I have never appreciated sleeping on the floor so much in my life! Leni! (@MakeMeCookies09) thank you so much for making up the coziest blankets and comforters on the floor making that cold, hard apparatus feel like a cloud to sleep on. I Wanna thank all the ladies in room 303 for letting me crash and party there, I will never forget it. I would also like to thank my man Stevie, who Brittanie introduced me to this semester for just being a cool as dude, and I appreciate the camera dude! Hell, after this semester I may be right back in 303 during the Spring, who knows it all depends on those people at the damn housing department. Kevin! My man! the RA apparently, check you out! Thank you for being the same cool ass dude from high school even though I haven't seen you in years until this semester for letting me crash on the futon at your place dude, and introducing me to that cute girl who came over and talked about how strong her pimp game was. Jenn, Winta, and Bridget your place has become a home away from home for me I actually feel like a part of this apartment, especially after last night when we got it in for Candace's birthday! Kim, thank you and your roommates for letting me stay over that one night when I was MC Hammered, and you're an awesome snuggler by the way haha. If I left anybody out, I'll probably go back and revise this shit before you even get to read this part about me forgetting anybody. Now, where do I go from here? let's see I have a lot to take care of before next semester. First thing, get my damn car back, which my uncle said is up and ready to go whenever I am ready to pick it up, take it to inspection, and get my tags. I am so full of confidence and love after this semester that I feel that I can take on anything thrown at me. I learned so many lessons this semester, learned so much about people, and made so many friends this semester it's insane. My grades were "okay" but next semester I want them to be outstanding. Do I hear Dean's list? Who knows? I just wanna wake up everyday and better myself to the fullest extent. This was the toughest thing I've ever been through in my short life thus far, but I am so glad that I made it through and finished strong, but none of it would have been possible without the help and loyalty of the people I mentioned earlier, they are fuggin awesome! Oh yea I just picked up theater as a double major! I'm going to start acting and producing my own stuff! Be on the look out people! I dream big!
So even if I slack, I got enough lead way...and I'm back, without leavin' I'm here, but you can't see him." -Jay-Z
