The 10 Days That Changed My Life

I saw this on another blog so I figured I'd try my hand at it... hopefully it doesn't come off as too lame... LOL



- The day I got my first apartment. Man, I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO geeked this day... at the time, I didn't even want it because 1) I was still trying to get back with my girlfriend at the time and 2) I didn't have anything to put in it... LOL... it was literally just me, my computer, my clothes and a few pans... after a few months I had it poppin' though...

- The day I left East Carolina the first time. This day was so bittersweet for me... it was the first semester where I had a bunch of friends around... I couldn't even step outside the door without people tryna see what was good with me... but it was also the time for me to leave... I wasn't getting what I needed out of school... plus I was feeling burned out... just so much was going on...

- The day I had a threesome. It was the first time I was ever disappointed by sex... not because the sex was bad but just because as a teenage boy, you put a threesome on such a high pedestal... like "one chick is off the chain, then two has to be bananas!!" But it wasn't... LOL... I mean, the "preliminaries" were pretty dope but the actual act of it was eh at best...

- The day I got high for the first time. This night just makes me laugh... from the time I was about 12, people had been trying to get me high... I always turned it down... not because I was scared or trying to be a goody-goody but ionno... just wasn't my steez... so I told my homie at the time, the day after I graduate from high school, let's get blizzed... so me, him and one of my other homies just smoked and smoked and smoked... we got sooooooooooo high... LOL... afterwards we went to McDonalds and ate so much food... it was just a dope night... I don't even smoke now though...

- The day of Anthony's funeral. This day absolutely broke my fucking heart... like, the way he died... well, it's kinda hard to put into words (which is ironic because I'm actually working on a poem about it... LOL) but it was just a hard day... he was the first person that was close to me that died...

- The day I moved back home from Greensboro. I had so much fun in Greensboro but the way things ended... it just brought so much to light... my experience in Greensboro was so dope but so hard at the same time... I just wasn't ready to survive on my own quite yet... if I were to move back, I think I'd be able to handle it better...

- The day I decided to come back to East Carolina. Self-explanatory... I needed to be back here to finish my degree as well as catch up on the college experience I missed out on the first time around... it's going as well as expected I guess... LOL

- The day I got in my first fight. Realizing I had the power to easily inflict my will onto another human being how I saw fit was so amazing to me... surprisingly, I never abused it by becoming a bully or anything but it was still an incredible feeling...

- The day that I went to Atlanta. For me to only have $20 in my pocket, I had a crazy amount of fun there... unfortunately, I haven't been able to go back and I'm still considering moving there once it's all said and done but it's still kinda up in the air...

- The day I discovered spoken word. I don't have the flow to be rapper and writing novels can be a tedious process... the perfect medium: spoken word... I can spit with passion without spending months writing a transcript...
