Tips are very much welcomed
Tips will go towards phase 2 of my traveling plan. Read "5 Decisions, 1 Change" for details of my plan.
The Movie That Gave Me My Voice
Before I get started on what I'm about to talk about, I want to say that regarding the movie Judas and the Black Messiah, this movie hit me a lot harder than I thought it was going to, and I enjoyed every minute of it. It was the jolt I needed in both my craft and with people that practice the same craft like me.
Fallen (Part III)
Max and Karen sit at the beach on a blanket, her red hair radiates as the sun is shining while she wears a cute two-piece black bikini. Max is wearing his usual attire except his pants are rolled up to his knees and he's not wearing his socks and shoes. Waves crash against the shore and the air smells like the water, Karen rests her head on Max's shoulder while they admire the scenery and Max plants a kiss in her hair while he puts his arm around her.
Rebuilding the Castle
Dear Don, I'm glad you made it out of 2020, and it was rough, but now you have a chance to recover and rebuild to get better. It wasn't easy, we practically crawled to the finish line, but luckily, you kept fighting to get to the end. You had so many plans from the YouTube channel (subscribe to Good Time Geeks, everyone) to doing more throughout the year, like going to the gym and even trying to hang out with some more friends. I know you couldn't do a lot because of the pandemic, and you don't want to put your health at risk to do what you want to do. I know you want to do more this year, but I want you to be smart and be careful, but when you come back, I want you to tell me what you want to do this year.
The Year of Soundtracks and Feelings
2020 started like every year for me, but before COVID came about and ran through everything like a knife through butter. I had feelings for someone, and things didn't work out, naturally, but that's okay. After my winter quarter, we had to do online classes, so since I haven't been working when I'm not doing school work, I've been indulging in some movies and shows that I missed out on.
Grandmother's Guide to Christmas Shopping
Grandparents... You have to love them, especially when it comes to shopping smart during the holidays, but here's the thing about me: I'm not a shopper. I can barely manage to go grocery shopping on my own. The only reason I have access to help is that I've had a Safeway gift card since I was 19, and I live in a small town now, so while I can still go to Safeway, I can go to Grocery Outlet, which is a lot cheaper and I can go to Dollar Tree as well. Granted, where I worked at a Dollar Tree before I moved to the small town but still.
5 Decisions, 1 Change
I've had more than ten years to think this through, and I'm still not done with it yet. I've been thinking of this plan in phases, and I already passed step 1, which is to plan where I'm going. Step 2 is to get my passport as soon as I possibly can. Step 3 is to book a flight to where I'm about to go, and phase 4, well, that's the part that I still need to work on, so while I keep working on step 4, take a look at the places I want to check out.
When the Wallet and Bank Accounts are Empty
2020, am I right? I mean, what a crazy year especially being a student who goes to college. I feel bad for the kids who have to go to elementary, middle school, and high school, but there's a bit of a silver lining to being a college student while a worldwide pandemic is going on. Now, depending on the person you are, you're probably going to work or stay home a lot; either way, my point is that you get to mess with ideas you have regarding food, and I think I hit a bit of a jackpot.
Back to junior year, we go! Remember when I talked about Caitlyn, and I mentioned another girl? You're about to know about her is. She was different from Caitlyn, and that was more than okay with me. While Caitlyn and I never shared any classes, this girl and I only shared one. Let's call her Chasity.
Caitlyn and the Simp
Junior year..... Oh boy. It's funny to me that I remember so much from junior year in high school, but I don't remember a lot from my sophomore year, but I remember the two girls I liked and how I went back and forth between them but for right now, let's focus on one girl, let's call her Caitlyn.
My Opinion on the GQ Interview with John Boyega
Before I get started on this, I want to say that you're allowed to disagree here, but consider everything I'm saying because this is all valid stuff as I am a Black man myself. Granted, I was born and raised in America, and John comes from a background that's British and Nigerian, but still, we share the same skin color.
Remembering the King
I honestly don't know how I'm going to be able to write this because I still can't believe this man is gone now... I know I never met him (even though I wanted to at some point), and I know I haven't seen him in a lot of stuff, but goddamn it, when he hit his mark, he made sure you felt something, and it didn't matter what. I know I got a little sidetracked because I don't know how I want to write this, so please bear with me.
