Some very tragic events over the past year or so have sort of pushed my personal life back to the forefront of the blog. You will see plenty of posts on those subjects as a result. So it won't all be fun and games, not like it was before anyway, all the time. It will get serious here. Deeply serious. Respect it. Life gets that way. Sorry. I know a lot of you like to act like you 'aren't what you are' offline on the Internet. That's not me. I am me all the time. I am all of the things you see. A Father. A son. A lover of PRETTY DAMM WOMEN. Sports. Music. A lover of Life. All of them.
I will still have a certain amount of 'respect' going on over here. My 'status' due to her passing won't change that. My 'filter' is still the same. Whatever I say now is what I would have said when she was here. It is that simple.
I know some of you come here for one or two things and the topic I am currently discussing is not among those.
Tough shit. My blog. My way. *shrugs*. I'm going to go in whatever direction I feel. Probably won't ever not have the women up though. So the pendulum won't be swinging too far right or left. @ direction.
Besides, what I share might just help you one day. You never know. I know some of you think that you are going to be 'whateverteen'- young adult (20-31ish) forever but you aren't. Eventually, you will have to grow up. Hell, even before you do REALLY GROW UP, some of the things I write about here you will probably have to face. Take the words that I type up here for what they are worth. I'm sharing for a reason. To let it out and to help folks..
First off, I am a HUMAN BEING. Which means I am flawed which is something that the vast majority of you don't realize this about yourself btw.
East Coast born and raised. Influence and living both in the North (Delaware) and the South (North Carolina). Full blown adult. Capricorn. Music snob. Sports nerd. Into all types of physical activities including fighting and physical fitness, basketball, football, etc, etc... Known for addressing the 'pink elephant' in the room which doesn't exactly make me popular at times and belies my physical stature. (You know the old 'If you are big and athletic then you must be dumb as a box of rocks theory that people STILL HOLD ON TO...SMH) Very opinionated but not disrespectful. Not very tolerant of disrespect because of that though. Can admit when I am wrong. Will tell you when I am right, why I am right and you are wrong. Colorfully. (Insert little cliche here that people use to describe themselves that I don't feel like typing up) You might get a peek at what has been going on in my World.*
THIS SECTION WAS WRITTEN AWHILE AGO AND I probably should amend it. I won't though. 'Cause it still stands in my eyes..
Some of you are coming here having 'known' (I use the term KNOWN VERY LOOSELY cause lets face it, you nor I know each other if we haven't spoken/interacted/since 5th grade..) from other places. Facebook, Twitter, the Internet in general. Delaware. High school. Middle school. North Carolina. School. College. Family. Friends of the family.
Whatever capacity you have to come to know me by. I gotta tell you this off top. Don't think for one second that I am showing you something here that is a 'secret' or some shit. It is not. It is KNOWN. All of it. Sometimes, people have a tendency to think they have stumbled upon a 'bomb' and think that they can use it to 'blow someone up'. Fuck around and have that shit implode in your hand. Ya dig? Do what you do and worry about you.She knows about the spot.Always has. Got it? Good. To the two or three people who come here who DO actually 'know me', obviously this was not directed at you. As you were....You can LIKE IT OR HATE IT, but I'm gonna do me. This is me. Didn't know 'these things about me' before you read the blog? Sounds like your problem plair.. not mine. I show folks what I want so maybe that is it. Maybe you didn't 'know me' like you thought you did either. Could be both. Who knows.. You are here now though. Might as well stay...
About the blog:
I am not one sided off line so I won't be on here. I will talk about what I feel like. It has a theme. The theme is me and what I like to talk about. Sometimes, it will bore the shit outta most of you. It will come off condescending (not on purpose) because of the nature (information overload) that I may provide when I am speaking on something. I like being right. Sue me. So I make sure that if I speak on something, I have these things called 'facts' to back me up. Not 'opinions'. If I give something opinion based, I usually concede that it is of my opinion and it is my reality. Not yours. Hope you can respect that.
A lot of you have stumbled across my little space of the Net via google/yahoo/ask/or some other search engine. Usually in search of a picture or a specific key word. Use the labels below. I put the labels up for a reason. So people could find stuff. Much easier to find what you want if you just use those. I use a series of words to go along with the 'specific names' of events/people/cars and things. If you use those keywords, you might just hit the mother load of information on this site. I like to make people think so that is why it is not just put 'out there' like that.
Anyhow, enough from me. Enjoy the blog and I hope you return.
