Interdependence

I learned two new words this year, and I ain’t even make it back to school yet. Feels good to know that there are people who can do things I can’t. Feels good to know I don’t have to do it all. Feels good to be a part of something bigger than myself

 

 

I get bipolar as the weather, guess that’s the only way my racing mind could balance the mania……

Fuck the wrong side of bed, I’m on the wrong side of EVERYTHING

#FML

it was better behind bars
I’m never alone and always someone to talk to there. I took some time away from all I know to find something better and found the worst. Thought a geographic change would help, but I’m more lonely and depressed than ever now. I should have just stayed homeless on my girlfriend’s floor with all her kids jumping on top of my head, since that’s the only future I saw for myself in NJ. A lonely deadbeat father with no kids. My peers think I’m retarded, my family think I’m crazy, and I feel stupid. Like on the edge of throwing my life away. For real, fuck a bipolar shzio who give a fuck, fake ass dumb ass pill not going to make my life better. Breaking my phone and buying a new one is not going to change my contact list. TBH, I’m MAD AS HELL I CANT TURN THIS HEAT OFF, CANT BREATHE, CANT SLEEP AND LAYING ON THE FLOOR TRYING TO COOL OFF. ITS HOT AS HELL OUTSIDE AND THE HEAT BLASTING IN HERE. WTF, WTF ,WTF IM BOUT TO GO RUN THE STREETS SINCE I CANT SLEEP AND MY APT UNCOMFORTABLY HOT AS FUCKING HELL

 

 

If I don’t let my frustrations out they will pile and get much worse. I can’t fix something if I don’t know what’s wrong with it…..

Blessed beyond measure

when you enjoy life’s treasure

You never want to close your eyes

 

 

It’s a great to time to cry out your tears

never too late to tackle your fears

The world is a big clock who’s time been distorted

 

Tomorrow not promised to no one

make the best of every single hour

What else will you have to smile for tomorrow

 

Speaking from the đź’“

moving through the people

You can’t see love or time, but we all know it’s there too……….

 

 

President’s Spring Address

No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend’s
Or of thine own were:
Any man’s death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.

Hold that thought. From the President of Montclair State University, best said in the words of John Donne, I applaud you..

We are all diminished by the loss of any one of us, and so we must try not to lose each other. And we must try to be worthy of each other. When we look around this room, what each of us should see is all those who are relying on us. It’s nice if we like each other, but it is not necessary and it’s not the point. The point is the greater good.

This University is the world in which we have chosen to work, and we do so for our students, we do so to repair the world, and we do so to protect earth.

No man is an island
Entire of itself…
Any man’s death diminishes me
Because I am involved in mankind…

When we leave this place, the bells in College Hall will be ringing. Do not send to ask for whom those bells toll. I will tell you. They toll for us, not mournfully, but in hope, reminding us of the chance we have to make a difference for the greater good, if we just remember to seek the best in ourselves and in others. Thank you all for your extraordinary work this year. Let’s bring this academic year successfully to a smooth landing, so we can re-fuel and get this space ship ready to take off again.

Thank you.

HOMAGE TO MY EYES

 

 

When I look at my mom it reminds me why people say we look alike

When I look at my cousins I see the resemblance people recognize

 

Homage to my eyes

 

Never really paid attention to them until I wore color contacts

Never paid attention to anyone else’s until I saw mine in them

 

Homage to my eyes
