Chris Brown Strikes Again

I like the power that blocking someone on Facebook or blocking their number on your cell phone gives. It's like "poof" out of mind & out of site.

Everyone has that one person on Facebook that constantly wants to quote the Bible or preach about God and waking up to another day. These also tend to be the most screwed up people you know. Specifically, I like the guys that call women names on their status updates or talk about how they got hurt cause she did this or she didn't do that. But, they are the same guys who were cheating on that girl the night before at the club, and didn't come home.

Don't worry, I do have a specific person in mind. You may have read a great blog I wrote some time ago about a man and his baby mama drama. I'm speaking about him again. What I think is a riot, is that he can't take care of his kids, he's only staying in college so he can play football, he doesn't have a job, and he lives at home (I believe). He's the guy who is always updating his status about how some girl did this or that and how people keep screwing him over and he's finding out who his true friends are. The reality is that he's the one that is always screwing people over whether it be a female or a friend. He's the one that can't take responsibility for his own actions. Yesterday, he made a post on Facebook quoting some lyrics from a Chris Brown song. The gist of the lyrics were about a girl and something shining. I left (what I thought was a pretty witty comment) a comment saying the only thing that's going to be shining is the girl's black eye when he hits here too. There were a few other comments, but I wake up today with his first comment being about God and his second comment was about how his mom always taught him that if a woman can hit a man, then she's man enough to be hit by a man. He also said that everyone makes mistakes, and we don't really know what happened that night between Chris & Rihanna. He finished by saying that no one better leave any more negative comments on his page about Chris especially because we're not all perfect. I pondered between going off or not, and I just chose to block him. This guy is a friggin idiot. I've tried to tolerate him, but damn, I can't tolerate stupidity and ignorance.

First of all, his mom is completely wrong. I don't care if a woman halls off and starts attacking a man, it is NEVER, and I repeat NEVER okay for a man to lay a hand on a woman. Second of all, I would like to see what he thinks if a man put his hands on his daughter. Would he say "everyone makes mistakes?" Mmm...I doubt it. He'd be on Facebook running his mouth about how he was going to kick his ass, if not kill him.

Oh, and Dear Dickhead: don't ever text me at 6:00 a.m. again thinking you're going to be able to come over.

A Kid's Innocence

Joey's niece's 7th birthday is today, so I text Christa and told her to tell Alesandra Happy Birthday and to give her a hug & kiss for me. Christa sent me this text: "She said how did she know? Did Tio Joey tell her it was my birthday?"

Eat Pray Love

"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that's holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then they leave. And thank God for it. Your problem is, you just can't let this one go. It's over, Groceries. David's purpose was to shake you up, drive you out of that marriage that you needed to leave, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light could get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you had to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master and beat it. That was his job, and he did great, but now it's over. Problem is, you can't accept that this relationship had a real short shelf life. You're like a dog at the dump, baby - you're just lickin' at an empty tin can, trying to get more nutrition out of it. And if you're not careful, that can's gonna get stuck on your snout forever and make your life miserable. So drop it."
"But, I love him."
"So love him."
"But I miss him."
"So miss him. Send him some love and light every time you think about him, and then drop it. You're just afraid to let go of the last bits of David because then you'll really be alone, and Liz Gilbert is scared to death of what will happen if she's alone. But here's what you gotta understand, Groceries. If you clear out all that space in your mind that you're using right now to obsess about this guy, you'll have a vacuum there, an open spot-a doorway. And guess what the universe will do with that doorway? It will rush in - God will rush in - and fill you with more love than you ever dreamed. So stop using David to block that door. Let it go."

While reading "Eat Pray Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert, this 1-1/2 pages really stayed with me. I, like most people, do think that your soul mate is who you are supposed to be with until you die. But, I whole heartedly now believe that Joey was and is my soul mate. He did all these things that this excerpt says. Great insight.

20's vs. 30's

Lately, I've been thinking about my life when I was a newly 20 something year old now that I'm fresh into my 30's. I've been trying to think what kept me so thin back in those days, and I've come up with a list of things I no longer often.
  1. Cleaning my apartment. I used to clean my apartment every other weekend. Now, I'm lucky if I clean once a month. Cleaning really is a good workout. I would say within the past 2 years, I've been less OCD about keeping my apartment clean. It's always picked up, but I could definitely dust and sweep more often.
  2. Cleaning my car. I used to vacuum and wash my car almost every weekend. Talk about a workout!! My arms are dead by the time I get done.
  3. Dancing. I used to go out Thursday through Saturday nights and dance my booty off for no less than 4 hours. Who knew doing something that I enjoy was actually keeping me in shape?
  4. Sex. I just read on that having sex for an hour can burn a lot of calories and not to mention if you're having fore play first. I can say that I definitely don't have sex as much as I used to.

I do think I eat the same as I did back then. I like cookies just as much and eating out. I do, however, drink a lot of Dr. Pepper which is not like me. I always drank water or juice. I'm convinced my Dr. Pepper obsession will end sooner than later.
