I’ve been hitting the gym hard, but haven’t had the loot to eat like I need to eat to lose weight. Then again, prisoners get swole on 3hots and a bunch of bullshit.
I’ve been trying to keep this logo thang going, but nobody wants to pay me. Doesn’t stop folks from asking for my work though. Either I’m not good as I think I am, or folks are just cheap…maybe its’ both?
I was once told that something is stopping me from my “greatness.” I’m at the point…that I just don’t think I’m great. I feel horribly mediocre at best and powerless to change it. I feel like even with my best effort…I’ll still be in that place….horribly mediocre. Everyone isn’t great…some of us are just the regular folk.
I watched a video the other day and they asked, “are you living your life or are you just existing?” I’m starting to wonder if my life consists of just existing.
I’m not pouting or crying out for help…I’m just thinking outloud….
What if I’d spent more of my life making better choices instead of trying to recover from the bad ones?
The U.S. Supreme Court will consider overturning a signal achievement of the civil rights movement, agreeing to hear a challenge to part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act in a case loaded with racial and political ramifications.
Acting three days after minority voters propelled President Barack Obama to re-election, the court yesterday said it will review a provision that requires all or part of 16 mostly Southern states to get federal approval before changing their voting rules. Opponents say that “preclearance” provision is no longer warranted.
With the justices already considering whether to roll back university affirmative action, the court’s current term is now a potential watershed for the legal rules governing race. Chief Justice John Roberts has questioned the constitutionality of the preclearance rule, which the Obama administration used this year to stop Republican-backed voter-identification laws in Texas and South Carolina from going into effect.
Preclearance “has been one of the most powerful tools in the civil rights arsenal,” said Heather Gerken, a professor at Yale Law School in New Haven, Connecticut, who specializes in election and constitutional law. “It’s made more of a difference in improving the civil rights of African Americans than any other statute I can think of.”
The court will hear arguments early next year and rule before its term ends in late June. The justices yesterday also agreed to decide whether states can collect DNA samples from anyone arrested for a serious crime.
Soooo I admit I was off my game as far as overheard convo goes, either I forgot to listen in or nothing stood out to me so I think I’m going to choose a statement from a list of statements I jotted down awhile ago when I had a journal assignment to record overheard conversation….“We were raised…
It’s fucked up when you’re together and alone what’s the purpose?
Trying to struggle it out for reasons that make sense when you heart them out because if you think about the best move, it damn sure isn’t what you’re doing now.
can’t call it abusive unless you rock with self abuse, then maybe that works or maybe it’s not as bad as you think, maybe you’re over-reacting
I don’t know, no matter how you travel the road, it always seems like you get there and then you get evicted, so you look for it again
How is it that everyone wants the same thing, but very few get it right? You either pick the wrong one to travel with, or somewhere along the road the other decides they don’t want to take the trip anymore.
Or do they just not want the trip with you?
That’s the real shit, why folks don’t just say it, I don’t know. Candy is for kids, give me the shit how it comes. I’m tired of wasting my time being where I’m not wanted hoping that I’m not over-reacting…
But this shit here, I don’t know what’s the purpose Left sitting here together and alone.
because for each keystroke that you’ve seen stroked there are a countless amount that would have left me naked, and then you’d see it all
hopefully the delay preserves my sexy like the whipped butter next to me
but what if it doesn’t?
What if you can hear me, each word read like the loudest riff through the largest speaker poppin’ decibels louder than your heart can handle. Each conversation reading like a confession of my not so secret desire to wrap you in my emotions.
damn, even Linus had a blanket…
But here I am, trying to figure out how to conceal what I feel. Or what I think I feel. Based on nothing but words on screen and on my end I let my heart bleed on paper…that I erase just like those keystrokes that never made it.
I mean, clearly I’m confused right? What I think I feel is nothing but hype…
If it’s not mutual then it’s just virtual….reality doesn’t matter…it’s real to me
and in the end, that’s what really matters though and until you feel the same, I’ll just keep backspacing these keystrokes
