Random Thoughts this Holiday...

- So not only is today the America's Independence but it is also would have been my parent's anniversary... and as I near 30 (shivers at the thought) , I have no idea how my parents met or any clue about their courtship. My parents separated when I was really young and my father died while I was in elementary school... and no one ever talks about it.

- Why does this dude I know in New York have to bring up his fraternity in every conversation. At 30yo, he lets Alpha Phi Alpha define his existence and it is beginning to annoy me and other mutual friends. Like dude please talk about something else... anything else. Not a good look.

- So after playing coy on the Wendy Williams Experience, Laylene didn't even win Monique's Charm School but Safari, the girl with the Kool Aid hair did. With a name and hair like that I hope the show actually did some good.... wait... better thought, why am I even thinking about this when I don't even watch the show regularly.

- I am so excited about my boy, Lee Haye's new book The Messiah which drops on Tuesday, July 24. If you haven't read his books Passion Marks and A Deeper Blue, you are definitely missing out.

- Why am I feeling that it is taking more energy than necessary to be cordial to someone when I see them out, because they do not really care for my friends. Especially since we haven't had much interaction since a year ago this time, his choice... I am cool with a hello in passing and keep it moving. Why do we have to fake like we care how one another has been doing? I am sure you don't really care about what is going on in my life cause if you did things wouldn't be the way they are.

- Speaking of which... why do people that are in their mid 20s and beyond still have high school ass attitudes towards people. The whole "You stole my friend... man.. yadda" "He is dating my ex" bullshit is so tired and corny. No one deserves that much energy.

- I need a vacation from friends, family, foes, work, email, and everything else... what I wouldn't do for 7 days on a beach in the Caribbean where no one knows me, with my journal, Ipod, and a margarita. Someone send me a buddy pass and some hotel points!!

- People annoy me...

A lot of people r boring in this world.
- example : that fraternity dude of yours (maybe that's all he has, so... you know you dont wanna take that away from him lol)
- another example : anybody with the high school mentality, anybody who still hasnt matured at 36 years old, anybody who doesnt realize that in life you always need a plan B in order to avoid depending on people, because other people are not responsible of you in any kinda way !
mmm.. this is gettin personal and deservce a whole post ! :-)

Yeah, I feel what you say on the Greek thing. I crossed into Sigma eight years ago, and there are STILL motherfuckers acting like they did when we were 19 and 20 years old. I'm like hello, we are all almost 30 - move on already. Most of them are the same as they were back then, if not worse. Still trying to party hop, where line jackets and haze folks on the wall. Please. I love my frat, but it's not that serious. Get a man/woman, and get on some new shit.

As for a high school mentality, I don't know that I can speak on that because nobody can hold a grudge like me, LOL. I'm working on it though. There is still frat I don't speak to from almost 10 years ago, which is bad. And considering my 10-year reunion for high school is right around the corner ... my will will be tested. But I'm a work in progress, so one day I'll change, ha ha.

Go to Aruba, you'll love it there. Lee Hayes is a great author cant wait for the book release.

I feel you. People always states how adult they are but faced with adult situations they act like stupid ass kids. Sad really.

At times, I could really smack a frat (sorors too). In college I had a few friends who pledged and then just went AKA or Sigma crazy. For some reason they don't understand that they make the letters, the letters shouldn't make them.

I need a serious vaca too. Not just a weekend getaway. In Spring 08, I'm doing a 9-city tour of Europe. I need something this fall/winter too.

Lee Hayes does have some amazing writing. I have been waiting for this book to come out for quite a while. Thanks for the info.

I am not a Lee Hayes fan at all. After reading the synopsis from your blog, I will not become one any time soon...
