On How Do I Do All My To-Dos?

I can tell you that I am the say way about to-do lists. I have one co-worker who keeps a meticulous to-do list and every time I see him cross something off I'm a bit jealous. But again finish "X Report" on my list could easily be my entire day and all that amounts to is that I did ONE thing today. So yeah I just try my best to keep a running tally off all the things I need to do in my head. At the end of the day I look over my email note if I didn't get to something and try to get to first thing in the morning. I haven't run into a major issue yet so it seems to be working!

This is so bad its good. Are we sure some of that is real cause, do people actually say/do some of this stuff?

On The Soundtrack to My Late Blooming Sexual Awakening: A Round Table

I loved this! This totally brings back my own memories. My soundtrack would have to be: Savage Garden, Blink 182, P!ink, NSYNC, early Destiny's Child. I also started to define myself with the music I liked, especially so the brooding sad boys in my grade would like me, hahaha.

On Not to "If You Read One Thing Today" You

I’m tired; I am so, so unendurable tired.

This is exactly how I feel right now. I'm tired of having the same conversation over and over again. I'm tired of having to defend my humanity and the humanity of black men. I'm tired of having the future taken too early. I'm just tired.

I know that I will have the Talk with my own children someday and that thought just fills me with anger and sadness. When will it end?

@frenz.lo I second Rookie. Or buy yourself nice versions of things you like anyway. Like a nicer bottle of wine, or super fancy cheese from the fancy cheese store, super nice coffee, etc

As you can see I would spend such money on food lol

Enjoy go forth and be fruitful.
