i’m hella hype for gabby & monique.
i remember checking out precious in new york with @jahmar1911 and really feeling the social worker scene.
i, unlike 97.8% of the audience, read the book, so i knew what to expect – but the onscreen mary jones was more than i could ask for. wow.
so congratulations to them both on their current and future achievements!
who wouldn’t want a success story like those?
just got in from LA’s version of canal street. a little spot i like to call “little big mexico.” all the shoes are wrapped in plastic & the only boots they have are caterpillar construction boots. (sigh). the shades were cool and the watches held value – but the best thing i saw there was this sign:
so yesterday – @sirandrewk & me were kicking back in wasabi drinking soda & eating $1 sushi rolls before hitting the streets. and we were talking about achieving goals, why were were & weren’t on the right path and what we needed to do to get where we needed to be – and i was telling him about the script i wrote with nicole beharie in mind and then…
i hear a girl beside us on the phone, laughing and talking in a southern accent. so i look over and introduce myself and ask where she’s from. “south carolina” she says. so we chop it up & we learn that she and nicole beharie are actually friends and she heard us talking about her, and she as gonna call her and let her know she ran into someone with a script for her to check out.
and whether she reads the script or not – my point is: you never know who you may be sitting next to.
#fact: i am nice to everyone i meet. i smile, share my food and drink, and whatever else denotes niceness. ask anyone that knows me: they’ll tell you.
so i made a new friend in wasabi yesterday and the circle continues to grow larger and larger.
(sings mcdonalds: ba da da da daaaah i’m lovin’ it)
and LA is attempting to kidnap me, i see.
the scenery lacks and the people (not all) aren’t as active as the cut throat east coast folks, but the opportunities – networking – magic is here. and this time around something is definitely different.
so i’m milking it.
and we, as fans, need to stop giving credit to “artists” just because they have years in the game. snoop doggy dogg fxcking sucks & so does LL Cool J & 500 other folks who need to retire and just LISTEN.
here is a note of protest for my brother:
fxck whoever won’t let jay snead run for office at bethune-cookman college. they don’t give a shxt about the student body – just the money. you know who you are.
(that message was not approved by jay snead and he has nothing to do with it)
@mswoods03 came out to LA this week and we did it semi big. walked through rodeo drive – got spotted by paparazzi & tourists who probably thought we were flava flav and delishus (ignorant spelling) – and hit fresno and roscoes and some mo’ shxt.
the other night i had a dream about a friend i lost last year.
it was one of those tv type dreams where she appears at the foot of the sofa and reveals something to me. you know what i’m talking about?
well, i actually met her at the apartment she lived in when she died & we talked about inappropriate things, and laughed and she grabbed my hand and told me to tell a few folks that things would be alright.
quite strange, i tell you.
i’ve never wanted to be the guy that dead folks come to, but if they wanna start now, cool. too bad they don’t have money to hook a brother up. nah mean?
i have too many friends who will wake up at 45-years-old and realize that stepping out of their comfort zones when they were 20+ would have been so much easier and less painful than waking up at 45 realizing the only goal they’ve accomplished was to stay alive. how sad is that?
i refused to be that guy when i was 10.
are you that person?
#fact: i am a life consultant.
so if you want to change something in your life and get better – hit me up. i’m always willing to help. not free – but you will be happy with who you become. guaranteed.
and the day is beautiful and i have so much to do. dang dang dang.
i’m hoping the website goes up this week thanks to @chocolatedawl
so today, let’s say FTW and succeed!
