...and now she in my world like hip-hop
I remember this one day where my brother came home and cried, but I never realized why. Until that afternoon. His coach told me when they were choosing their jersey numbers, my brother wanted to wear "21", but another kid in front of him had another picked that number. While it never clicked in my head initially what's the significant behind "21", I soon realized why he was so upset, because my brother wanted to wear my jersey number. I have to admit, I got a little choked up. I didn't know how to feel, I was happy, proud and a little worried.
For my brother and I because of our age difference (10 years) we don't really do much together and we didn't really connect until this past summer when we spent every moment of everyday with one another since my mom was away. My mom has always told me how much my brother looks up to me, how when he gets something (usually food) he always share with me, how when I am out he'll stay up to wait for me. I never grasp how to be a brother until this summer, I never knew how much he meant to me until this summer and I never knew how much I love him until now.
What worries me is this kid looks up to me, and I haven't exactly been the role model type. It worries me that he'll grow up and do the things that I do. After hearing about the jersey story, I realized how much I am not doing for myself, how much I need to do to better myself, how much I need to do to be a better brother and a better role model. I love this kid to death, I am sure everybody out there who has siblings will know exactly what I am talking about.
Dude probably hired a Kings fan to help him move. Karma is a female dog.
Following a videoconference with NBA greats Robert Horry, Dominique Wilkins and Bernard King about the most amazing moments of their careers, Horry admitted that he doesn’t know the exact whereabouts of his seven championship rings.
"Honestly, I don't know where they are right now!" Horry started, laughing. "I just moved, so I think that they're in a box somewhere in my house. The movers weren't supposed to touch it, but they did. I used to keep them in a jewelry box in my bathroom, but I think that they're in the house somewhere."

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company ... a church ... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude ... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me, and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you ... we are in charge of our Attitudes.
On a semi unrelated note: Can I have her in the mornings instead of my allergies?!
Above is the cover art for the lastest Cool Kids mixtape "Gone Fishing". For those who don't know who "The Cool Kids" are...it's not my job to tell you who they are, my job is to provide you a link <--there so you can click on it and open up to the wonderful Wikipedia page that should have more than enough information than you'll need to know. Back on topic, I was kind of late on these guys simply because they rocked xxl t's and sagged their skinny jeans (sorry sometimes I judge a book by the cover). With that said I told myself I won't dig their music because I didn't like how they dressed. Months later, like the hypocrite that I am I watched they're video for "Pennies" and I felt like an idiot the moment the hook came in "kick it in the city/when we in/around town/next door neighbors tellin us/that it's too loud/now neighbor, can you please just turn that mess down?/this is the sound of throwin pennies on the ground". It was not to say I was blown away by that but I was amazed at the fact that the hooked was so fluent, crisp and memorable because by the time the first verse was done I could repeat the hook already word for word. Now that I've gotten the chance to listen to some of their other records, I must admit I am impressed. Because their flow is tight, their word play is nice and they just have fun with it. They don't talk about politics they just rhyme about their gear, and their kicks. Just being "cool" with it that's why they are "The Cool Kids". Like them, hate them Their new mixtape should be out in the next few hours on coolxkids.com (free downloads) definitely give them a listen if you're interested for some "fun" hip hop...even if you're not you should download it because it's free.
