Met the Parents...

So as most of you probably already know, I have a new lady in my life. Unfortuntely, I'm not much of a communicater because none of my close friends knew about her (some of which found out through this... Sorry yall). You see I've only known her for a week! Sounds crazy but shit... We're content with how things turned out.

Lately I've been pondering over the thought of "moving too fast". What exactly does that mean? It's not like we met yesterday and got into a relationship today. It's almost like we have a wonderful understanding that we really like each other and we are travelling down the path God put us on. Who can hate on that? Not I. Bottom-line, I can't wait to see where this goes. It could be the most wonderful thing and in the same token it can fall short... who knows! I'll tell you one thing: I'm not letting "societal norms" dictate my relationship with her. HE put us together for a reason so who am I to go against that. I'm just going along for the ride and enjoying every minute!

Met her: 192 hours ago

Said I liked her: 168 hours ago

First Date: 66 hours ago

Met her parents: 48 hours ago

Text'd her to say Hi: 2 min ago

And We're Still Going Strong!

One More Thought...

So I was talking to my mother today and I decided to give her an update on my life. Me and her talk every day but I was always one to keep my personal life to myself. I guess I feel kinda of weird telling her every single thing thats going on in my life but today I said screw it, I want her to know everything. I love this woman!!!!

Anywho... I felt compelled to tell her the I designated someone my big brother out here. Maybe I felt compelled because she was complaining about the bullshit that my actual brother does. I'm still not sure. But I was telling her that I pretty much have a big brother and a big sister who happen to be boyfriend and girlfriend. I was also telling her that I have a new lady and we all went on a double date the other day. Now what she said I thought was cool. She said that I have a mini family out here and thats cool. Come to think of it... I am fortunate to have such wonderful people in my life. I couldn't ask for no one better!

Be easy,

New Path or Different Direction?

So I'm in the tech coolin after a pretty good morning. I played ball, ran an errand I was supposed to do for weeks, and I was given the privilege of reading my big bro's blog and I fools with it. Things are cool now people. For the longest, probably the whole spring semester, I was going through ROUGH times. I don't need to go into detail as to what but hey, who doesn't go through rough times. I look around and see how fortunate I still am. Even though times are rough, they can be soooo much worse. I literally take each day for what it is and I ENJOY every bit of it! The way I see it, "you can't know what sweet tastes like until you've tasted bitter." (I don't know where I heard that from.. probably a movie or something.. Poppin right? yup)

Anywho... So I've recently embarked on something new. Its weird how one moment your coolin and the next moment your... (Ok I believe India Arie said it best)

It's like yesterday
I didn't even know your name
Now today
You're always on my mind

(My lady friend put me on to this)

So I'm sure you guys can tell whats going on from just reading the lyrics... Oh and yeah... It's mutual! We've been coolin and enjoying each others company and being over-analytical that I am, I began to analyze whats going and so has she. So to get answers to some of my questions, I went to my favorite supervisor of all time (Ms. T)...

side note: (stole that from big brother) I don't know about yall but I think I have the COOLEST supervisor ever. I can talk to her about any and everything. How many people can say they go to work on their day off just to chatt... Not too many. But I can!

Anywho... She gave me some advise and basically told a cool guy (Me) to chill the hell out! She said if me and my lady friend enjoy each other's company then thats it. No over-thinking anything. Take each day for what it is and hang out. At our age we aren't truly sure what we want and we get worked up in future ambitions and basically what other people think. In reality, all we need to do and continue on the path we're on. Time is a powerful tool (BB) and it will always show us the way because who said so... Come on... Say it with me.... GOD said so!!!

Faith in HIM will take us all where we need to be... So that being said, I will be doing just that. I adore spending time with her and I can't see this going anywhere but up. Oh yeah... we're going salsa dancing tonight! Just thought I'd make a few people jealous lol nah I'm playing. Well this is T, signing off and enjoying the rest of his day.

Getting paid while falling asleep!

So I've had training for work everyday for the past week and a half. Honestly, I've been getting paid for doing nothing. In training, all we do is sit there, try not to fall asleep, and act like we're paying attention. I take breaks by pretending I'm getting water when I'm really just going to bother my supervisor (who's crazy cool I might add).

Today in particular is a really good day. I haven't had this feeling in a while. Life has been pretty "blah" lately so I've had the mentality that I'm just getting by. Today brought a feeling of everything will work out wonderful. Lately I've been really grasping around the thought that I honestly and truly LOVE music. It's soooo crazy how music can dictate/facilitate the mood I'm in. Today, on break, I called my lady and then through on some tunes while enjoying the beautiful weather. She put me in a good mood THEN when a certain song came on, I just couldn't stop cheesing. It was the most random song but just because I haven't heard it in awhile just made me feel good. I'll post it at the end of this. Anywho... I guess the purpose of this post is to let yall know that I'm having a really good friggin day!!!

I hope you guys are too!

Be easy,


P.S.. Is anyone else noticing that the formatting on this is acting madd dumb?

So I'm coolin in my room not too long ago and this song came on VH1 Soul. Who knew that the song would become my favorite song for now! But its weird... Everytime I hear it, its like I'm listening to it for the first time and I get HYPE all over again. This song not only makes me actually feel good but its inspiring as well. I wanna dance and its like I don't even care who around. I kid you now... I was dancing at WORK today! Everyone was looking at me like I'm crazy but shit... Honestly, not too many things make me that HYPE and that CRAZY while also finding a way to inspire me. Enough of my ramblings, I'm posting the video and the song just cuz I can do that!

Listen, Learn, and Enjoy,

Gnarls Barkley- Going On!!!

Moment of Clarity

I've come across a situation that has happened to me recently and I feel like a clarification is needed. Now I'm in Philly, coolin and enjoying my life. Those of us stuck in philly these days know that there isn't much to do but to chill with cool peoples... So with that being said, not too long ago I received the number of two ladies that are no strangers to me and my roommate. He was always the middle man in terms of all of us coolin but when I got their numbers, I decided to not only thank them for coming to an event I hosted but to also see how they were doing. 

Now this day in particular I was off of work and lookin for something to do. So after talking to both, I found out that one of them didn't have any plans. Now me and the lady chilled before and I just wanted to get out of the house so I asked her if she wanted to accompany me downtown. She agreed and we went. She was hungry so I decided to take her to my spot downtown to eat... Unfortunately, I caught the jack continuously afterwards. We get to the spot and she starts to order what she wants. Then I started to say out loud what I wanted but it wasn't in the intention to tell the cashier. All I was doing was merely thinking out loud as to what I wanted to order. THEN... the cashiers straight gases the situation!!! The cashier thought I was putting my order on the same bill as the lady I was with so she starts saying, "Aww thats nice that you're paying for her!" Now in my mind I'm like, "JACK!!!!" All I could think was how the hell did I get myself in another one of these situations... 

Thats the life of Mr. Walcott

So after the cashiers said her comment, the lady who I was with said, "Oh, so your paying for me." Now I already knew I caught the jack so I decided to pay for both of us... So we ate, had a conversation but all I could really think about was how I just caught the "Fucking Jack". Now I'm not even gonna front... I was definitely too broke to be doing all that so it got to the point where I was barely listening to this chick cuz all I could think about was .... (Quite Frankly and not to offend anyone but)... how I just wasted money hardbody... So we hit the park, chatted for a lil then I had to go to rite aid to get cash back for the train back home....

Jack Number 2: I pick up the cheapest thing I could find and asked the cashier if I can get 3 bucks cash back. I was wishing and hoping I had enough but... Yup, you guessed it.... I got DENIED!!! At first I thought it was an embarrassing situation but I realized I didn't even care. I thought the shit was funny. So the lady offered to get it and we headed back to campus... After the day was done, I caught the jack twice, had a good laugh telling my roommate what happened and luckily didn't overdraft so I thought it was a cool day.

On an end note, I want to thank the lady that was with me because if we were on a date than that definitely would have been the jack. We were hanging out on some cool shit and I appreciate that... I just wish more women had the ability to do that!

Be Easy,

Oh Yeah!!!

Happy Father's Day...

So its Father's Day and apparently today means a lot to some people. For the past week all I've heard was ideas and questions as to what people should get their fathers for Father's Day. In my eyes, its just another day. It's sunday; the Lord's Day. I've been stuck with the thought that should I feel some kind of way that I have a father and I can contact him but yet I have no ambitions on doing so. Growing up, I've realized that I have no sentimental feelings about a father figure. I was content and satisfied with just having a mother. My father left/forced out (pick one, they both apply) when I was two because he had a very bad drinking problem. I spent most of my adolescence with my mother and a step-father. I never liked that dude. I never considered him to be a father figure at all, although he did teach me three things: 

#1. I learned how NOT to treat a woman. (The experience gave me a greater sense of appreciation for women by seeing the bullshit my mother had to put up with and she's still strong. 
#2. I learned how NOT to treat children. (Learning from my childhood, I can honestly say that I will be a wonderful Father. I never knew the impact that a great father can have on a person's life but I hear its pretty good. So I can guarantee that my kids will have that.
#3. I learned how to clean very well. Me and my brother had to clean SOMETHING every fucking day. This fool would walk in the door and the very first thing he would say was, "Terence, did you clean the bathroom?"

Unfortunately, I was rarely around my grandfather before he passed away. From the stories I've heard and the fact that he raised 8 kids with my Queen (Grandma), he seemed like a great man. All through life I didn't have a father or a father figure so I don't need one now. It's weird that my actual father lives about 20 minutes away in South Jersey. I got his number so if I wanted to talk to him I can. The fact that I can and I choose not to hurts when I think about my wife (ashy booty - inside joke) and how she lost her father. I know she wishes she can talk to him and see him just one more time if possible but she can't. So sometimes I feel like I should be fortunate that he is still alive but its like saying that you're fortunate for a stranger to be alive. I honestly don't know what to think.

I was in a store yesterday and as I was about to leave, the cashier told me Happy Father's Day and it through me off a lil bit. I gave a little grin and i couldn't help but wonder what that meant. On the cashiers part I knew he didn't know if I was a father or not but on my part, I was thinking since I'm not a father, do I pass that on to my father but then I thought why would I (Weird but thats what I was thinking)....Ahhhh Life is a Trip people, Buckle up and enjoy it is what I say...

So Im here listening to music, tryin to find songs to play at the bbq today and I realize that my music collection is not good for "black" parties. I realized that the hype shit that people wanna dance to is the stupid "get silly" shit that I refuse to listen to. So I'm unfortunately stuck with the issue that I have to download that shit. Reggae: I'm good, Oldies: I'm good, R&B: I'm definitely good, Soulja Boyish shit: Definitely will lose that battle... So I gotta take one for the team and I gotta at least have some of that stuff. So Unfortunately, I'm 2 seconds away from downloading Get Silly, wish me luck...

Hopefully the crowd will ,

So Im Coolin Right AND....

So Im coolin right and I'm doing various things like listening to 112, looking for new music, formulating a playlist for Tuesday's BBQ tomorrow, and stressing about my life (as usual) AND I peeped a new video on VH1 Soul (Ms Krabapple's fav channel). Guess what that video was....

Damn, so the original plan was to just put the video on here and let yall play it to figure it out BUT... its so new it aint even on YouTube or IMeem......jack 

Artist Hint: "You're who I desire, you light my fire. With every kiss you take me higher."

Song Hint: "Love is kind when the world is cold. Love stays strong when the fight gets old. Love's a shoulder to lean on. Love Is...."

We BARRACK'D the Vote!!!

So.... We did it. Obama is the Democratic nominee for the 2008 Presidential Election and "WE" are that much closer to creating History (if we haven't done so already). Not to ruin the joyous occasion or anything but these are gonna be some really stressful times ahead for him and for us. (Ask me and I'll elaborate but I think you get the idea already.) We gotta pray even harder for him!

The Legendary Roots

"At the end of the day, the only people that can surpass The Roots are The Roots. And the only people that can fail The Roots are The Roots. There is no excuse." - Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson

Feed off that,

Last One: I Couldn't Resist!!



P.S. In case you were wondering what song is being played. If you're anything like me then you definitely was. It is "Fancy Footwork" by Chromeo.

The Best One by Far!

So apparently Zune has artists that create little "movie-ish" stuff to popular songs and on my previous post, I found one done with a Santogold song. So after I posted my previous post, I kept watching the other videos. 

This one is the best by far. I like it.
In case you were wondering; the song is "Dirty Laundry" by Bitter:Sweet

Be Easy,

On My Santogold Shit...

So I randomly woke up at 6 am!!!! this morning. Here's what I did:

1. Ran downstairs because I was thirsty as.... I thought I had something clever but its 7 am dammit so absolutely nothing came to mind lol. I was thirsty.
2. I washed my face and brushed my teeth.
3. I started to watch Law and Order:SVU (Poppin ass show)
4. Text'd someone asking why the hell was I up at 6 am.
5. Didn't get a response from the text.
6. Looked at the links Kanye got on his blog.
7. Then for some reason I decided to listen to Santogold.

Now its while on a site I found on Kanye's blog that I stumbled across this video with (and you'll never guess)..... Ready?........... Are you Ready?..... Are you sure?...... Yup!...... Santogold! 

Weird ass video but hey, who's normal now-a-days?
Enjoy Dammit!
