I’ve come to the realization that morning wood is not something random but rather….a curse. morning wood is a curse and it falls upon me. fml.

United states social forum here I come!!! Pretty excited about this trip. A getaway and also an opportunity to get educated by thousands around the u.s. There about ten thousand plus attending! It’ll also give me a new experience and view on life. Detroit isn’t doing so well. 60 percent of the city is empty! Some neighboorhoods might have just one residence. There’s no supermarkets! But the people have come together as a community and built over 800 community gardens! amazing community power. The poverty rate and unemployment rate is too much to imagine. Practically no jobs! Vacant houses are being taken over and vacant lots are being taken over by the people! They taking back what belongs to them as a right! I’m lookin forward to this powerful movement. I hope that it’ll bring the team and I to a closer more personal level and also to learn a whole lot! I wish I could just leave my phone behind but I ain’t tryna get lost! We’ll also be doing a workshop on education in the bay area and attending many others. Vincent chins birthday is next….Thursday I believe. RIP Vincent chin!!! We’ll be visiting his grave in Detroit. Chin was murdered! Beaten to death by white union auto workers back in the 50s or 60s. They were mad that the japanese auto industry was more succeessful and targetted chin! He wasn’t even Japanese he was Chinese! He whoopped they ass once then was chased down and beaten by a bat while people and even police just watched. It was a hate crime and justice was never served. The murderer only got a three thousand dollar fine. That’s bullshit! RIP Vincent Chin!
“how come you never text/hit me up no more!?” WTF why haven’t you text or hit me up? Ask yourself that question before you ask me. I’ve done put my effort into it. You haven’t put much so don’t give me that shit.
The second I come home, I ask him a few questions and he gives me attittude an acts like a dick. I just lay down and play with my dog. Stupid lil brother. He’ll mature one day or maybe I’ll just never bring back my ps3 for him.

Yesterday was our LIMCA-CO educational summit. It went great and smooth except the part where the CO team showed up late. We weren’t there to help set up an it looked really bad because the limca interns and ylos did set up instead. It was a long and hard day. I didn’t even want to show my face there. I was stuck in hayward. One overslept. And two had SATs. All bad. But we had a discussion and came to an agreement and are koo now. Today we had our Detroit trip retreat to learn about the trip, workshops, and agenda. It was fun and we got a lot done. Unfortunately we had o make a decision. We voted to cut someone from the trip, meaning we lose $400. But it was a group decision not all the way final yet I think. It wasn’t easy. She got a full ride to CAL and neededtofocus on that. But at the same time this meeting was mandatory and it was clear that if you didn’t make it you were being cut. The group also felt that she shouldn’t come anymore. Disconnected from the group and she’s missed the preps. I’m sorry but I’m proud you are graduating with a full ride and found love. Congrats!
I’ve been having a lot of fun with these guys for a while now. Some going bak to the old footballs days, most going bak to last years tennis team. I’ve partied with them. Gotten drunk with them. We played football yesterday and have been playing lots of games together. These guys are creative and knows how to have fun. I’m going to miss these guys once they leave for school. But before that I hope to see them off and have plenty more good times with them. It was great to be accepted in their group. I wish the best of luck of luck to these guys and hope that we’ll continue to have fun throughout our lives.
Some say that Patience is the key…..but it seems i’ve lost that key somewhere down the road….
