A Grunt that’s been stuck in traffic for the past 15+ years, it seems; from DC to SEA & Iraq, to back in The District. I love my Little Monsters more than life itself. Born Day: 4/20.
P.S.- My Drumpf posts were prev. posted w/ diff. pics.
Please believe that I was supposed to be having my date with Destiny and meet a tragic fate many times over. These are just the times that I can recollect and/or was more or less informed of by others with first hand knowledge of the situations.
30DEC2020; 1150, WED Some of you (those friends/fam that can see my location on your phones) may or may not be wondering why I'm sitting at this lake, jamming out instead of finishing up my orientation and whatnot. I most def put in more than a few prayer requests and had no small measure of luck making it as far as I did with the company that just let me go.
25DEC2020; 2110, FRI As I sit in my living room sipping sparkling cider, counting my blessings with a "disinformation-friendly outlet" (OANN) playing in the background, I can't help but reminisce on the "drunk nights [that] get remembered more than the sober ones"- Common's intro, and eponymous track off his 6th album, "Be" (24MAY2005). I figure that it's been a New York minute since my last list and I've yet to do a post for the "Proof" community, why not kill two birds with one stone?
14DEC2020; 2315, MON. Dear Fam, Tell me, Brother Man, ever heard the adage "the money don't really make me whole"? My first time hearing it was likely somewhere around the time that the beautiful and talented rapper, Noname (formerly known as Noname Gypsy), decided to open up her debut mixtape with that line way back eons ago on 7JUL2016.
Rumor has it that "the answer to the ultimate question is '42'". Of course, only the creator of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy", and his BFF (Best Friend Forever), who's sworn to secrecy, actually know what that particular question is.
I don't know who took this pic of me some ten odd years ago, or what was going through my mind at the time. It's self-evident however that I might could have avoided a lot of heartbreak and whatnot had I just taken the advice of my "old heads" around that general timeframe.
Just a brief caveat before I dive into it: Most of the work that I did as a day laborer was back when and in between the times that my dad and I were with the union. We didn't moonlight at all.
Diving in headfirst: 1.) Don't ever forget that a sniper's most valuable weapon is his/her ability to remain undetected. Leaving equipment and waste all willy nilly is a big no-no. "Periodt".
