Friday Freestyles


This week has gone by in a flash.

And I am SO ready for the weekend.

This has been one of the most important weeks of my year. If you don't know, see the last post.

I am still on an emotional high from that! And I have had to keep practicing my reading every day (it is only 4 minutes long), so I can keep it fresh for the next reading on August 10th. So that hasn't been a big problem. Let's just say that I am SO looking forward to the next reading. It is one thing when I like my own writing, but when someone else likes it too, that's an awesome feeling.

And can I just take a moment to wish our beloved former President Barack Obama a Happy 56th Birthday?

Happy Birthday President Obama!

Do you miss him as much as I do?

There was less chaos. We'd all gotten use to folks feathers being all ruffled because a black man was in charge (let's face it, that has to be the reason. It is very apparent in the face of the current administration.  A dead giveaway is all the pretending that this here chaos is... normal).

I actually sat up and listened to what President Obama had to say whenever he gave a speech. There was something to be gained from it.

But now, it's a chore. This current president, well, the language is on a grade school level, which I am not accustomed to.  And then when he starts folding in multiple lies...

*turns channel*

God bless the President, but please stop emotionally draining me. Stop it.

And try to tell the truth.

There is some big grand jury assembled now. Hmm... Can't lie to them. Better plead the fifth!

You can just feel the atmosphere charging up. Everyone is upset. Mental chaos is everywhere. I want some peace. Peace of mind and all that.

But our current President... he is simply a reflection of who we are as a society. What he is is what WE are collectively as a country.


Oh. Well.

Song of the Week. Jay-Z and these videos for his new CD.  He is putting them out on a schedule of some sort, and I haven't quite figured that out yet. But the latest one is "Adnis".

See, I like that.  A think piece.

And I LOVE Mahersala Ali! Wow!

And no one is mumbling. Real rap MAY be returning. Maybe.

Who knows.
That is it for me. I am out of here!

I am ready for the WEEKEND!



  1. I agree. We implore the current president to stop lying? Happy Birthday Mr. President Obama
