So I’m 21, in a new city, living in an apartment and for a lack of better words attempting to ride around and and “get it” – I have come to the conclusion that for the next couple of months I am going to do some serious soul searching blah blah blah and be as creative as possible and go to as many crazy things and events that this city has to offer – I AM IN MY FUCKING PRIME! I’ve accomplished a lot to say the least and I want to grow like really…I’m tryna grow motherfuckers and this is the time to do it!
The other day I am ashamed to say but SHIT I have to get this off my chest or I will explode – I went to Barnes and Nobles, but before I continue let me tell you something that is pretty important and has to do with my B&N Story. Earlier that day I had linked up with my roommate and she helped me check out a book that I’ve been dying to read on black identity and I decided to go somewhere outside of the apt to read it and so I went to a readers haven a bookstore and came across B&N in Crab Tree Valley. I walked in sat down and cracked open the book and OMG I COULD NOT READ FOR MORE THAN 5 MINS WITHOUT CHECKING MY FUCKING I-PHONE!
Disgusted – I left. What I am getting at is the fact that I could not read without being ADHD – idk if technology or specifically Instagram did this to me but I am on a mission to reverse this shit – I can NOT and I repeat CAN NOT LIVE LIKE THIS.
Is anyone else going through this? If so JOIN MY MOVEMENT IN READING FOR 15 MINS without touching your phone – I swear I will overcome this shit if its the last thing I do…this week haha.
Astu Mengesha – stay down blaze up
