Flaunt

I remember growing up, I wasn’t the type of person to flaunt. Honestly, I couldn’t even flaunt growing up. 

I didn’t have the nice things like the other kids in my schools or on the streets did. But that didn’t stop me from being grateful for everything I’ve in life.

Like for an example, I talk to this woman every day. She gets her nails done every two weeks. I ask because I notice on her snaps she always has different colors nails. 

I offer to pay for her nails whenever she gets them done and she loves it because no one ever pays for her nails but that just tells me that she is grateful. 

You see that? I can flaunt that I pay for her nails to people but I don’t. We both keep this to ourselves because it’s the right thing to do and what’s the point? people going to see them when she going to work and etc.

Even with my daughter, If she already has the main stuff she needs I’ll buy her couple of outfits for her and have them sent to her mother house. No one really knows about this because I just don’t flaunt it.

We all have a choice to flaunt or not. I just hope you make the right one and I wish you a good day 🙂

Blast from the past #1

Every once in a while I’m going to share an old post I did years ago. I sometimes like looking back on my writings just to see where I was at the time in life. But I hope you enjoy the read and have a good night.

Today, it mostly rains all day, but not long, it was a cloudy day as well, but it couldn’t help. I and my little brother had a 2-hour talk today, but I need to set a pray for him, I don’t think he understands life like he should, but instead, he acts cocky and will try to down talk you. I’m unsure what made him like that, but I do pray he learn. I also met old cousin today that I didn’t see for years, but I was happy to hear her family is okay and doing well. I bought subway today, that’s the only thing I actually ate all day to be quite honest with a drink and cookie on the side, I also had milk and cereal. I was blessed that I talk to 3 church girls today for 22 minutes and I’m very thankful for that as well. I learn so much today and looking forward to speaking with them on Thursday if I live to see it. I also to learn allot from my cousin I met at the family reunion, I felt her pain in me for the stuff she told me and talk to my baby girl all day as well.

I wouldn’t say today was all that special, just some things you can’t change in life, but you live through it as well, I pray for everyone I know, but this all I’ve to say today.  

Bubble

I can think of a lot of things when I hear the word bubble. Like just yesterday while working before it started to rain for a whole hour which sucks by the way because it got super busy.

Across the street from my job, there was this little girl and her dad playing with bubbles and you can see they were having a fun time. 

Before it started raining, I was able to speak to the dad and he told me that was her first time playing with bubbles. He explained to me that he was always worried that something bad will happen if he let her play with bubbles. But as a dad, that happens. Even with my daughter, she surprises me every time I take her to the park because she had learned something new and I’m a proud father when she does.

But he realized why keep her in a bubble? let her experience this stuff while she is little. Besides she is a kid.

Live your life to the fullest and stop being trap in your own bubble. There are special things to see and try in this world. Just have a smile on your face when you do it and I wish you a good day.

Mentor

Mentor… perfect word to use today. The only mentor I’d in my life was my step-grandfather.

As far I can remember he been teaching me stuff most of my life. I remember the first lesson he gave me at the age of 4. I and my little brother always had piles of clothes on the floor. My mother didn’t really care but he did. He went to the nearest store and bought us a basket. He told me when you are done wearing these clothes put them in here and wait until your mother clean them. I remember the first time he taught me how to wash dishes which was annoying lol. Being the oldest in the house meant I had to do most choirs until my sisters and brother got older. He even taught me how to do yard work, working on cars, fixing stuff inside the house, how to cut down trees/ taking care of flowers which my grandmother help but I learn more from him. Let just say he taught me allot about life.

I remember growing up whenever my sisters and brother got in trouble, he would talk to all of us in a group instead of one on one. He uses to sit for hours and talk and talk and talk. As a little kid/ young man that was annoying lol like man, sitting down in a chair for an hour had your booty hurting but I also knew it was all love and that he didn’t want to see us go down the wrong path like most of my friends did.

Even though he’s my step-grandfather, I’ll always see him as a father figure because he didn’t have to help my grandmother raise us but he did. Yeah, it was hard but it made me a stronger person in life. Even till this day, he will come over and give me some advice about life and now that I’m older I just sit there and listen like the good old days.

I hope you enjoy the read and I wish all of you a good day.

Tide

Tide… It’s funny they pick this word today because this morning I went to Vinoy Park which is the most beautiful park in Saint Petersburg Florida if you ask me. 

It’s just so beautiful that’s hard to explain, like if you ever visit here please check the park out. You won’t regret it. I wish I could have taken some pictures if I knew this word was going to be used today. The sunset is nice with the ocean in the background like you really have to see it with your own eyes.

If you ask why I was at the park, I was supposed to meet an old friend of mines who I didn’t see in a year. We were just going to hang out like old times but sadly her little sister didn’t have to take her exams today and she didn’t tell my friend until the last minute.

Yeah, I was bum out but when I turn to my right, all you see is the bright blue sea and you can smell every bit of it, Now that I have a video because of snap chat lol. Sio hopefully I’m able to upload it. Sadly I couldn’t but I was able to screenshot the video.

Sitting there felt good, waving to everyone that walk, jog, and ride pass me. They all had a smile on their faces so I know they were somewhat happy and probably was enjoying their walk. I even seem some people working out near this tree oh and I also saw a couple taking some pictures near the water, you can tell they were in love.

I enjoy my time at the park and walk all the way which took like an hour but it was a good walk. I hope you enjoy this read and I wish you good day.

Letter to a friend #4

My best friend was really annoyed with her car today and it causes her to have a bad day. I spent most of the day thinking how I’m going to make her smile when I return home and I came up with this.

Love is when having someone with you and share so many amazing time together even we know we can not always be together. Some random old lady told me that on the phone earlier today and I found it funny that I immediately thought of you when she hangs up the phone. But you notice right? How we have so much love for one another but hardly ever saw each other over the years. Even when I move to Orlando we still remain best friends and I wanna say thank you for that. I must say you never did me wrong as a friend which is why I have the utmost respect for you. You are special and beautiful in all your ways. Your kindness, your mind, your way of thinking, your opinions, your style, your charisma, your eyes, your smile and your body. the way you deal with life and the way you understand me out of all my friends and I found that special to me. I understand you’d a bad day and I hope these words made you feel better. I love you and I hope you have a good night sleep.

She didn’t get this message yet because she is sleeping but I know deep down inside she going to love it.

 

Sleeve The School Days

I remember growing up I never wore sleeves in school or in school period, I honestly hated it. Even when it was cold. I felt like I didn’t need a jacket to wear when it was cold outside. I just hated wearing long sleeves period, until I got older.

Growing up, the old heads used to tell me to wait until I get older you’ll be wearing a jacket just like everyone else. My other family members just call me young bull with tough skin( well some). My grandmother always got on me about wearing a jacket. Leaving for school in the morning when it was cold was hard because she will be up and to make sure you on a jacket before you left her house but I took it off when I got to the bus stop.

High school was always funny to me when it was cold outside. Seeing other students with their heavy jackets made me laugh a little. They always use to ask me you ain’t cold bro? you going to get sick bro, man your bones don’t hurt? do you even get cold? Truth is, yes I do but it didn’t affect me like everyone one. 

Now that I’m 25, I enjoy wearing my black jacket. Sometimes it doesn’t even be cold and I’ll randomly put it on and just chill. Oh yeah, The old heads were right about the getting older part. I feel the cold and it affects me much better now and boy it sucks. Plus I do security and gotta ride this jitney around work so I can pick up the residents and take them to their location and I dislike when they call because that wind chill hit ya hard

I caught the flu for the first time because of the cold weather and that was just last year. I took an hour and 30-minute walk home in 35 degrees weather and caught the flu 3 days later and that shit was depression but I learned my lesson and that is to always take care of yourself no matter what because we only have one body.

This is my personal experience with the word Sleeve but I’m sure we all can use this word in so many ways. I hope you enjoy the read and I wish you a very good day.<a href="http://Sleeve“>Sleeve

Astonish

I hardly ever use this word until today. When I see this word I think of one thing and that’s the day the mother of my daughter told me she pregnant. I could use a lot of examples but this is my favorite one.

Me I’m a boobs guy, so when I couldn’t touch her boobs for some odd reason I knew she was pregnant. I didn’t say anything at first but deep down inside I knew she was. I also notice her body was slowly changing. I notice all this just be paying attention to her and I was also worried.

I was able to sit her down one day and convince her to go to a free clinic and get a test and she did.

One day at work she picks me up. I was tired that day because I got called in the day before to work the overnight shift plus mines in the morning. So I didn’t get off until 3. I got in the car, we didn’t pull off at first and I was about to find out why.

She looks me dead in my eyes with a little smile and said congratulations! you’re going to be a father! I was shocked at first that I was going to be a dad. So many questions were going through my mind like are we ready? I’m ready to be a dad? I wonder how she really feels? is it a boy or girl? If you wondering… it was a girl lol.

Either way, I was happy that I was going to be a father and surprise at the same time, even till this day I can’t believe I’m a father to a little girl, She is now 2 and our birthdays are 4 days apart which is funny but cool.

This was the most surprising moment in my life and I’m glad I was able to share it with ya’ll. Hope you have a good day!

Random Girl

Some words I thought of while I and my best friend was talking about the people we like or notice. I was telling her that there this girl at work I’d notice when I first started working there. I notice this beautiful woman who was always in this room when I went to lock the doors in the back of the health center… it honestly was a rehab for the old residents or random people when they need to get better but I still call it the health center. The first few times I saw her I didn’t speak but I wish I should. A few months in I started to wave and she ends up speaking to me first. We talk little when we saw each other in the halls way and I came to terms that I like her. She slowly grew on me and I started liking her more and more but didn’t say nothing, didn’t do nothing, didn’t even show nothing but I should have. When I finally build up the courage to make a move. I was going to buy her some flowers and have them sent to her when she works.  But I sadly didn’t know her scheduled because it was different every week. I ask one of her co-workers that she work with sometimes and I ask her when did her friend work? she asks why? I said I wanted to buy her flowers. She gave me a crazy look and said don’t do that!! I ask why? because she got a boyfriend couple of weeks ago and she is happy. She also said you waited too late. Like she really did like you but you never ask her out. I was sad for a few days after that. I even try to avoid her at times but fail. A few months later her shift got changed to 3 to 11. This only means I saw her more throughout the day. Few days after that she was able to convince me to give her my number. I honestly didn’t expect her to call me or even text. She doesn’t text me but she calls all the time which I don’t mind. At first, I was a little uneasy because she had a boyfriend and it just didn’t felt right talking to her for hours and hours during work or even when she does a double she calls when I’m home. She never calls me when she home which is understandable. But don’t you hate that? that one person you wanted but never got because you were so shy. You hate the fact that ya’ll is talking allot but not together, on her breaks she calls you to come meet her and she spend every single break with you, even when you on break she knows and calls to hang. That’s what happens when you don’t speak up, never let the opportunity slip away when you have a chance at something. Am I going to continue to talk to her? Yes, I’m lol… sucks eh? we both agree to be cool friends or best friends. She believes since we have the same birthday we should be connected forever and yes we have the same birthday just she three years older than me. I also learn just because you like someone doesn’t mean you can’t see them as friends… No, I don’t plan on waiting for her to be single but I’ll always be there for her ya know? I remember she asks me what should she get for her boyfriend for V-day… I told her to get him what he likes. She said she didn’t know. I smile and think to myself that this going to be a long ride. I hope everyone is doing well out there and remember, go for what you like because somethings it won’t be there forever.

Just a dream I had

One day I travel back to St.Petersburg Fl just to check up on friends and family, I stayed for about 3 days at least so I can see everybody I love, or even hang with. But one night as I drive down P.park road just listening to music and enjoying my last night here for a while, I see a pretty young lady that I knew back in middle school, but we still keep in touch today. I found it odd that she was walking this late at night, So I stop and ask her what’s going on, Why you out here so late? She replies I just walking back home, I miss the city bus. I ask her how far is home? and why didn’t you ask for a ride from your friends or family? She replies that they all busy, which I understand. So I offer her a ride and she got in, she asks me where I was going? I told her, I’m going to st.pete beach, just to feel the nice sand on my feet before I head back to Orlando. She said that was cool and sound lovely on a night like this. But she also asks me how’s you and your girlfriend?(DON’T HAVE ONE IN REAL LIFE) all that advice I gave you, I hope you use it. I told her I did, and we’re well, just taking it slow that’s all. She ask why she not with you? I said she wanted to spend time with her friends and family. Well at least you understand her? don’t you? I do? why you ask? Just asking? even though we don’t see each other like that, but I do understand another Virgo. I crack a smile, maybe so, but we all can be different don’t you think? True, but let me ask you a question? since your girlfriend is out with her friends and you going to the beach alone. How about I join you? just friends. I’m sure you don’t wanna spend your last night here alone all by yourself on the beach at midnight.  Maybe true, but you don’t have any beach clothes to wear, Am I right? No, you’re wrong. I got some, I went to the pool today, they about dry. Okay, but the bathroom going to be close, how you going to change? She reply I’ll wait until you get out the car and change. May I do that or that a problem? Me no no, gone head. I won’t look. As I drive the rest of the way to the beach and we just talk and talk about life and other people and relationship problems. As we approach the beach, and she started changing her clothes. We started walking on the sand looking at stars and the bright moonlight that lite up the whole sky, we walk for hours just talking. As it comes to an end, she said, you are such a good guy, I’m not even dating you and you’re so nice to me? I wonder why? My reply was I’m just nice and I try to help as many people the best way I can even if I don’t have nothing to offer. She replies you offer your soul and respect to people which make you a good guy. Maybe one day you’ll find the right girl for you, just try harder in life is the best advice I can give you at the moment. I reply that goes the same for you. I notice your Facebook status and etc. everything going to be okay in your life. Just believe. Is that why you wear that believe bracelet all the time? Yes. but it can mean many more, as I crack a smile. But I’ll take you home now. before she went in the house, she gave me a kiss on the cheek and said thank for the wonderful night. I hope your girlfriend see what she really have and I hope she doesn’t lose you. Good night Johnathan talk to ya soon. As I wake up with my damn neighbor mowing his yard…
