Sparatic Brain Processes

My friends are getting on me for not blogging. I tried being lazy and putting off, but they are looking over my shoulder. So here are some "random thoughts".
I have been playing hook from work the last couple of days. Those children and their germs were getting on my nerves. All that damn sneezing and coughing without covering their mouths. I need to go buy a can of Lysol to put near my desk. Classes are going ok. This is the third week. No major assignments yet, just a lot of reading. I have about 300 pages of material to cover per week. I am going to be such a learned man in the end

My family is beginning to get on my nerves. We have published a book and they have left it up to me to get it out there and printed. They call me every couple of days and it is a little annoying with my school and work load. They also want me to get my brother, sister, and cousin into my college....As if I am the director of admissions. I guess that is family for you. You gotta Love em' I am happy that they have somewhat moved on from their fixation about me being gay. They have transferred their judgements to my uncle, who is shacking up with a woman 10 years his senior. Hey, I say to each his own. I am just glad they are off me for the moment.
I love my friends. It is so nice to have genuine people in your life; People that are not judgemental; People who have your back; People who care about what you think; People who will be there until the end. I was once in a relationship where my lover was my only outlet. I felt that he didn't want me to have friends. I wasn't allowed to talk to anyone for fear that I was cheating. Well to anyone out there with lover and friends...Make sure you balance your time. Your friendships are priceless. Treasure them! "When lovers leave, Your friends love"
As some of you know, I was trying out a long-distance relationship. I don't think it is working. We both have very hectic school shedules and have not spoken in over a week. It is very hard to juggle life with long-distance love. Hell, it is hard to juggle dating with my school schedule. I want love. I love love. I look at my two friends Shawn and Fuzzy and admire their connection; their friendship; their relationship; their love. I guess I will press on. I challenge you all to make 1 new friend this week. It doesn't have to be a date, just a random friend.
Well, here are my " sparatic brain processes." Do what them what you will. Comments welcomed, criticism welcome, advice welcome (dee). I love you all. Have a great week.

Happy New Year

I know that we generally celebrate the new year on the 1st of January, however for me the new year usually starts in September. My careers are in education. For those that don't know, I am a Building Substitute Teacher and also in school myself at Kean University. What is a "Building Substitute you may ask... It is a couple steps up from a regular substitute teacher. We basically have a specific class in a specific school for the year. Although we do not have a salary, we do have a contract and are guaranteed a position. We perform all the duties of a regular teacher including lesson plans, workshops, bulletin boards etc. I was placed in a 1st grade classroom this year. I will be there until Thanksgiving, after which I will move to a Kindergarten class for the remainder of the year. I am also excited because I plan to finish my Bachelors degree this year. I am taking 7 course this semester and 6 next semester to graduate in May with a degree in English and Education.

I move into full gear tomorrow, Monday September 10th. My year begins. I teach from 8am-3pm and attend class from 5pm-10:30pm Mon-Thurs. I have R.A. duty on Fridays. As you can see my new year will be hectic. I am happy to be busy. This will help me to be focused on school and my long distance relationship (Love you "lil bit"). My part-time job at the hotel is trying to get me to work on the weekends. My friends call me a workaholic. I am going to say no. I don't think I can manage two jobs and school full-time. i think I will reserve the weekends for my friends and family. (I love you guys)

To everyone out there, I hope your lives are prosperous. Have a blessed year! Happy New Years!!!

Thoughts of a Crowd

So, today is Saturday. I am currently in Brooklyn with a few of my friends (a few being 10). We are being good at the moment (no sexual escapades as of yet). We all were shocked when we first entered the building. We got off the elevator and when it opened, we were entering the apartment of the host. How sexy is that. The elevator opens into the actual apartment. After about an hour of decision making, we decided to order "soul food". I have to say it was one of the most satisfying meals I have ever eaten. I had fried shrimp, macaroni and cheese, and collarged greens (not collard greens, collarged greens). So now I am tipsy, full, and horny. With that said, I decided to write a blog.

As I am listening to the interactions of the crowd, I see that I am regarded as the love struck, sexually addicted, nice guy. When I first heard the comments, I was taken back. How do I feel, knowing my peers think I fall in love too fast or get attached too quickly? I don't know. Should I re-think my position on love and relationships? NOPE! I am perfectly fine with my ideas on love and my actions over the last month. I am 25 years old and have only been in two relationships
(1 for 3.5 years and 1 for 7 months). I have experienced various situations and emotions and feel that I have a firm grasp on the pulse of my heart. I know my feelings and my emotions and am comfortable expressing them. (The funny thing is we are having this discussion right now and I am typing this as we speak)

On a more sexual note, I am HORNY. There are a couple guys here that I just met and they are cute. One of them belongs to one of my friends DAMN, and the other is pretty quiet. I am horny though.

Back to the interactions going on now....Dee is speaking his mind, Jay's comments are usually a rebuttal to Dee's. At least they are off me and on to Greg. They are talking about how he doesn't fall in love at all. I guess we are the two extremes. I am too fast and he is too slow. Fuzzy is sleep , X and Soldier look high, Omar is drunk and sleep, Shawn is laid back and throwing in comments here and there. I think we all are thinking about sex. Well at least I am. lol I NEED SOME SEX!!!

...And so it goes
