Just used and abused…is how I felt for today. I went through the day all normal and busy. I got a few pages into Daisy Miller (way easier than Benito Cereno), and I did the peer review. My body ached though, and my mind lacked pretty much in vigor. After some editing, I at least did an hour long jog which is a shock considering how I felt.
You know what interests me is racial preference. Look at this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-cl=85114404&feature=player_detailpage&v=HjSh_esW9W4&x-yt-ts=1422579428
People of all races are pretty much the same, but of course different features appear to different people and those features are more attractive to some people. Now all women are attractive, but black women get the short end of the stick. I wonder why that is. Is it because of the collective stereotypes portrayed in the media (some girls don’t help their case either) which could also be traced back to those harsh segregated times? Or is it something else that I’m missing? Honestly, black women aren’t my preference, but I’ll admit that there are at least some out there that are very attractive and sweet that are not mixed. Just make of this what you will.
I also looked into the US Virgin Islands. I may visit there someday. I don’t know. Better think on this further. Goodnight.
Now I could tell you how my day was, but you know what they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words”:
Yep, I was inspired by Egyptian culture (mainly drawings) today. Though to be honest, those pictures had scared me since I was a little kid and still do to this day. They’re just staring at you. You have to admit that’s creepy. Look King Tut I can’t pee when you’re watching me! Anyway, Egypt is quite a topic to talk about, but if I have to explain everything, we’ll probably be here for weeks, so I decided to show this picture instead. Note how they appear. Egyptians paintings look like this because they wanted to capture every detail of the human body (and I don’t think they understood how to draw in 3D but that’s just me) and they go by scale, meaning the bigger the person in the picture is to everybody, the more important he is. Being of African descent (though I’m pretty sure I’m not Egyptian), this really interested me as well as the thought about going to the islands and checking out the different cultures:
It looks quite interesting. My mom and I were actually talking about going there some time. Possibly after graduation or whatever. We even talked about what kind of woman I would marry in the future. We both agree that my future wife would probably be outside our race or even outside this country, but we’ll see. Plenty of good fish in the sea. School gave me a load to do this weekend: two books to read, a peer review, a test on Tuesday, and a writing assignment. I’m going to need the four days. There’s three thousand words for you. Goodnight.
I thought that today I would have a crappy day with low energy. Turned out that I had an average day with pretty high energy. I got up and did some homework (let’s just say I’m read out) and then soothed my brain with some television programs. Then I began editing my book for the first time in the last few days before heading out for a jog earlier than usual.
Once I got back inside, I got to chill out for a bit. My sister came running into my room demanding that I not go to school. I being placid, told her I can’t do that, and she goes off in her room. It was then that I figured dad must be staying home. I don’t know why she doesn’t like him very much. She claims that he argues with her which isn’t true. Truth be told, he treats her better than he does me. She’s a brat. Spoiled rotten. Anyway, I had to go shave and now I’m going to take a shower. Later.
There’s one thing I learned in life: attractive people get everything. Or at least that’s what a Buzzfeed video says. I don’t know where I fall, but screw it. My life’s pretty good so far. I’ll just keep riding that wagon until the wheels fall off (hopefully not before the age of twenty-two). T.H.E (the hardest ever) is one way to describe my day. No literally. I listened to that song like five times today. Will.I.am, J-Lo, and Mick Jagger. What’s not to love? Prepare for hate…now.
Seriously, today was kind of tough. If I hadn’t been able to take sips of my Monster during my classes, I would have passed out in at least two of them. I had gotten so hungry in my last class that I had to run down to the library for a quick snack. Food tastes better when you’re hungry. I also had to run down to Publix to get some dental floss. Take my advice Benito Cereo is a hard read. I couldn’t tell where the story began and where it ends. The meeting tonight was tough too. I almost fell asleep there as well. Maybe this is a sign that I need more hours or that I need to change schedules, and there’s only one that I could actually change. We’ll see on Thursday.
Today started off pretty rough, but overall it ended up pretty well. I had to do some reading assignments and I did something I thought I wouldn’t be able to until Wednesday, but I completed the essay I had to do for literature class three days before its due date. I know that doesn’t exactly sound like a good day, but it’s always the littlest things that you’d appreciate. Anyway…wow I didn’t think this blog would be this short, but goodnight. Another rough Tuesday ahead.
Since we didn’t go out grocery shopping yesterday, we had to do that today. Stuff was expensive but we got enough to be sated for two weeks. Got back home and started looking at the papers I had to critique when the power went out for several minutes right before a big thunder. After that brief moment of annoyance, I continued critiquing (good thing laptops are battery powered).
Watched the pro bowl. Got bored and watched some walkthroughs instead. And that’s it. Nothing spectacular. You try making mundane events sound entertaining. It’s…not that difficult but tedious. Peace.
The morning started off well enough. I got up, got dressed, ate breakfast, and watched Turn Me On on my tablet before heading out the door. My family stopped at Chick-fil-A for some extra breakfast (it was going to be a long morning and it’s advisable to be pretty full).
The assembly wasn’t actually that bad. Didn’t feel too long. Had some good programs. I was worried for nothing. Maybe I was getting used to lectures. Maybe I’m getting too old to be too active. Maybe the presenters were actually effective in keeping my attention. I don’t know pick an explanation. Anyway, I got home to watch some walkthroughs for fun before going to bed. Peace out.
