finally got a chance to watch the conclusion of the South Park episode where Cartman is in the future, and I was kinda disappointed to see that there are no minorities 500 years in the future. Well, there are two...a black dude and an Asian dude with a Fu Man Chu.
I did, however, like how the robot pets were named by numbers ie... K-10 for the canine, KIT-9 for the feline (...it suppose to play off kit-"ten") and COCKA-3 for the cockatoo.
So listen up society, in the future, according to Star Wars and South Park and other futuristic tales, minorities will be non existent. Victory for white people and other races who don't like black people and/or minorities. To everyone else, myself included, SUCKS TO BE YOU!

Is it bad that I tried to set up an eHarmony account and was informed that it wasn't possible for the site to find a compatible match?

S.O.S. I might be in trouble...
Well LiveJournal World, I am back. As most of you know (...those who care) I had to take some time off to re-evaluate my life, and so far I have discovered a lot of shit that could possibly explain why I am so fucked up. Everything that I have grown to know, believe and love has been a giant lie. I have rejected the idea of organized religion because I am certain that I will never discover the truth about God until I improve my relationship with God. I have learn that when join a organization or are associated with a group, one tends to be influenced by that group...even if have doubts about that group or the message it conveys. I have also come to the conclusion that I may never be in a serious relationship or get married. I just don't see it happening...but I am content with it. What's fucked up is the fact that everyone around me is falling in love...even one of my co-workers, who has very bad body odor, has rekindled a relationship with an old high school sweetheart...and he might be getting married and moving to Seattle by the end of the year. It's not fair. My brother informs me last week that he is old enough to decide where and with whom he should live...and I'm not on the list. After five years of sacrifice and struggles, he choose to move to Illinois. I hope that he made a choice that will make him happy. I really don't know what to do. I feel like I am cracking up. The future looks so bleek, but it is full of new opportunities. I am really looking forward to school next month. I need to be with people, new people. And at the same time, I am afraid to leave my house. I should be on the verge of a nervous breakdown, but it not that bad...yet.

Current Mood: apathetic

x-posted in several communities.

I apologize for wasting anyone's time with my post the other day. I doubt anyone took the time to look at the post...many of you didn't read it or had a chance to read it. However, the purpose of this isn't to complain or anything. This is a thank you note.
READ MORE...Collapse )
_pasadizo , you're cool with me. Thanks for taking a chance when no one else would.

Things just keep getting better...
It seems that the young lady I have been so smittened with for the last semester is a lesbian. We talk all the time, and I have expressed my attraction for her on several occasions. I have asked her out at least ten times, but each time she would be busy or she had to go home to visit family on the weekends or some other reason. I was starting to get a little discouraged, but I persisted because I really like her. It wasn't until I saw her dorm mate a few minutes ago that I found out the reason for the countless number of rejections. It went a little something like this:

...The Rude Awakening...Collapse )

I need to do some heavy drinking right now.

This is turning out to be a very interesting week for me and there are two more days left in it.
Against my will and better judgement, I went to Roper's with Kat Tuesday night. She is my friend, and although I was scared out of my mind, I couldn't let her go alone.
Naturally, I expected the worst, but in the beginning, it was alright. I spent most of the time smoking cigarettes, counting the number of black people and making sure I had a clear path to the exit just in case anything went down.

(note: There were more black people there than I expected. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a chocolate swirl, but there were quite a few chips in the ice cream.)

Kat spent most of the time trying to convince me that everything would be okay. Two fights almost broke out inside. One involved a girl who got angry because some guy threw ice at her. The other involved two guys who were a bit sauced and couldn't hold their liquor. I got quite a few odd looks from people when they saw me with Kat...and I began to feel a little uncomfortable.
That's what makes me mad at times. Why was I so uncomfortable? Other than the obvious, I am just like everyone else...well, not just like everyone else...but being black SHOULD not make a difference. Unfortunately, it does. The Roper's experience reminded me that no matter how nice I am or how I act, I am still trapped in society's redlined section for black people, and any attempt to crossed that line will result in my self-conscious thoughts and sense of inferiority.

Just a little note to let everyone know that I haven't fell off the face of the Earth. I had to do a little life evaluating...plus I had to leave that computer alone for a while. I doubt I will post anything major for a while. But to all of you who read my posts, know that I miss reading about all of the interesting things that happen in you lives and I miss the comments and advice you give that help me with my life.

To Julia:
Good luck with the ACT...don't settle for anything less than a 36...lol.

To Mikkii:
Are you guys still moving to Hattiesburg? I miss the emails I "USE" to get from you before you stopped...hint-hint.

To Dani:
Where are you?! I really, really miss you.

To Ashley:
I saw your twin in the grocery store the other day. Spitting image of you...but she didn't have that drop-dead gorgeousness that you have. (Plus, she has three kids, horrible taste in clothes and the thickest Southern accent I've ever heard in my life. As far as the face and the body, she came very close. Just in case you were wondering, her name is Amanda Hutchinson and she is 24 years old...I know that because I told her about you, and that began one of the longest conversations I've ever had with a woman I didn't know.)

To Maureen:
Now that you are finished at USM and Goth Night is a thing of the past, it is unlikely that we will ever see each other again. I wish we could have taken advantage of all those time we bumped into each other to build a better friendship. Say hello to Beth and Michelle.

To Chibs:
You know, I known you for months, we live within an earshot of each other and I still have no idea what you look like. Let see if we can change that...OK?

To everyone else...Laura, Ashley (never_meant), Tani, Paixamour (sorry I don't know your real name)...
Don't forget about me!! I'm still here.

I'm not having too good of a day...
    I went to see my Grandma in the rehabilitation center in Ellisville after school, and I haven't stop crying since. As i sat there looking at her in her vunerable, childlike state, I did everything I could to hold back the tears. She was telling me how lonely she gets and that I was one of the only grandchildren to come see her. Then, I looked at her face...puffy, almost like it was swollen...and I thought about the way my mom looked before she died. I cried the other day when i went to see her. I tried to run and hide in the bathroom before the waterfall came, but one of my friend-girl's mom saw me and she reach out to hug me..I cried like a baby. (Yeah, I'm a wuss...I cry...wanna make sumthin' of it?) I want to take my brother to see her, but I don't know how he will take it. What should I do? It is really too much to take.
    I'm burnt out. Back and forth to Hattiesburg everyday. I have school in the mornings; then, I work in the evening. On top of that, I don't get a chance to see my brother that much. He's finally talking to me now, and the kid never seases to amaze me. The other day,while we were out grocery shopping, he told me that when he becomes a pro football player, we was going to come back and take care of me *lump in throat*. He also said that he didn't want to rely on sports to get him what he wants, so he is trying to find out what else he's good at. Smart kid huh? I doubt that I made that kinda impression on him, unless he see my mistakes and is trying to avoid the life I have. He is lean and cut...I am fat and flabby. He has more friends at 15 than I've had in 31 years combined. He popular and quite the lady's man...I am anti-social and couldn't find a date in a spiced fruitcake.
I guess my wish came true: I wanted my brother to be the total opposite of me, and he is.
