Father's Day Weekend

(pictured above: My Dad, My Granddad, and of course Me)

This past weekend I spent in Charlotte, NC with my family for Father’s Day. The majority of my time was spent at my grandparents house with my Dad, Granddad and Grandma. I had a wonderful time with the old folks. I ran around the city of Charlotte a lil’ bit with my Pops and then chilled at my Grandparents house. I enjoyed hearing all of them tell old stories of things that I did when I was young. Some of those stories are just hard to believe. I honestly don’t remember all of that stuff. Anyway, I swear I think I gained about 10lbs from my Grandma’s cooking. She hooked up the grub southern style for her only grandson. I remember eating around 2 o’clock on Saturday afternoon, then waking up around 6pm. Yeah, that good food put a brotha to sleep somethin’ nice. The weekend was just a relaxing one and really one that I needed. Just to get away from the DC area and spend time with family was a blessing.

Can't Stand The Heat!

Okay, so it’s over 90 degrees outside right? I come home after a very long day at work and find that the air conditioning in my apartment building is down. Sounds like a lotta fun doesn’t it? I called the maintenance and they gave me the usual response “We’re working on it”. You wanna talk about a brotha angry… I was heated!!!! (ß maybe that was a poor choice of words) Anyway, I cut the fan on, but of course it’s only blowing hot air. I grab an ice pack from the freezer and lay it on my chest. But that only helped for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile Comcast decided that they wanted to have problem with my cable internet service at the same time, so I couldn’t even go online. Here I am sitting is a sauna of an apartment with no air and no internet. At about 10pm I decided to call it a night and I laid down on the bed to go to sleep. I woke up around 2am in a pool of sweat… I mean drenched! That was it for me. I jumped outta bed, threw on my New Balance kicks, grabbed my car keys and went outside to my car. I got inside the car, reclined the seat and started the ignition. I set the A/C on high cool, cut on the radio and went to sleep. Yep, I stayed in my car until almost 7 that morning. That’s how bad it was. I could not sleep peacefully and comfortably in my apartment and that was the only option for me at the time. Of course I probably could’ve gone to my sister’s house which was less than 10 minutes away, but I wasn’t thinking about driving. Being in an apartment with no A/C with the temperature is over 90 degrees is no joke. I wanted to go to the rental office with a baseball bat and do a Principal Joe Clark up in there. But they ended up getting the A/C fixed that morning, but who knows how long it’s gonna stay on this time around. I swear, I gotta find somewhere else to live. I can’t deal with this craziness all summer.

Prices shown on the above ticket confirmations from Ticketmaster are only indications of the seat locations and face value prices for the tickets. You don't actually expect me to sell the tickets for the same exact prices... do you? C'mon now, I'm a hustla. This is my second job and I've gotta get mines too! However, if you're interested in either event feel free to shoot me an email.

Gotta Pay The Bills!

I've been busy as hell the past few weeks. I've tried on a few occasions to sit down and try to write a few things about events going on outside of the workplace. Obviously if you look at the date of this entry and the date of my last entry it's easy to see that I was not successful. Anyway, I just finished working a rack load of OT the past few days and I'm bout to try and get a lil' bit of sleep. I'mma be back though...
