Keep it Real.

Happy 17th birthday, rest in peace. Hope you enjoy the balloons we sent you and the messages. Glad to have come.

Began the day waking up to pops knocking on my door, asking me if I wanted to go to Downey. Stayed home and called baby to pick me up so I can watch her game and stay out of the house for the day. This weather is amazing, can’t wait for next weekend. Gonna start really running in September. Time to begin my Position Paper and B


I haven’t posted in awhile. Senior year’s pretty dope so far, can’t even front. For the first few weeks, there’s been assloads of work and tomorrow, Im starting on my Position Paper for Humanities and Ben-Hur Synopsis. Try outs are comin’ up and I hope I’m ready. There seems to never be a time my week isn’t busy, I hope my work ethic stays consistent. Deuce!


I’d be On and Off, inconsistent, etc. Lately, nothing’s stopped me. I’ve worked out everyday, played ball everyday, cleaned everyday. I’ve gotten bigger, stronger. I still need to get quicker and more explosive but I’m sure by the time the season comes up, my head, body, and mindset will be in the right place. Who’s behind me and supporting me? All attempts at motivating me appreciated. Thanks ahead of time.

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
"If it’s true what they say about men…

then when a man looks at a woman w/ lust, she has already began to grow in his heart.

The thought of when a man looks to a woman, they look with lust. They also say a man’s true love begins with lust. So doesn’t that mean when he first looks at a woman, with lust, she has already began to grow in his heart. Therefore, it is NOT a sin.”


I disagree. I admit, your logic is very convincing. Although, you using human opinions to prove your idea goes against God makes me completely disregard what you said. It’s like “Human Opinion Vs. God.” Doesn’t make sense to me at all, there’s no questioning God. It’s good conversation to have, but thanks for expressing yourself. This is how new beliefs are created about religion, I enjoy the conversations/debates that come from topics like these.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…

This is one of my absolute favorite quotes, ever.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You playing small, doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are born manifesting God’s glory within us. It’s not in some of us, it is within everyone. And, as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

8 Hour Hooping Session

made me realize I am nowhere close to in shape for the upcoming basketball season. I really hope I can stick it out through practices this year, I want to play.

Starting yesterday, I’m working towards a quicker, stronger me. I’m stepping up and taking control again, just like AmandaElainee w/ her running. Props to her. Help me by motivating me, please. All attempts appreciated.

I really miss my “kick” game.

We have now witnessed the first five days of this unforgettable free agent craze, and we still have no clue as to wear King James will be playing next season. However, if you have been paying attention closely, you would know that every team in pursuit of LeBron James has a different marketing scheme in hopes of luring him to their respective ball club.

The Chicago Bulls, a team that most people think will win the LeBron James sweepstakes, has taken sort of a reverse psychology scheme in its pursuit of LeBron. Recently, the Chicago Bulls officials sent a package to LeBron’s front door which contained an OG colorway of the Air Jordan Alpha 1 and a message daring James to fill MJ’s shoes…literally. In detail, the message stated, “Do You Dare to Fill These Shoes?” Additionally, the message contained more reverse psychology for James to soak up as seen above. This is definitely a pretty interesting and bold move on Chicago’s part. Do you think it will have any effect on his decision?
