Atlanta Bound

I'll be back home tonight! I can't wait to catch up with some people and see what's new. Everytime I go back I feel like a transient in the city.

I hope I don't jinx myself or anything plus I really don't believe in jinxes anyways, but I am suprised that I do all sorts of terrible things and God still looks out for me. I mean I can count at least 4 times I should have died, and yet here I am. The only thing I really can do is be thankful and try not to make the same mistake twice! So now I'm on track for my vacation to Atlanta and BarbadosSenegal.

It's actually crazy that I'm going there to see my father, I think the last time I saw him was like in '04 and according to my moms he "wants to talk to me but doesn't know how and he's hardnosed just like you are"

So I called him early saturday morning and it was kinda akward but he was like "things are going good with my business (car wash) and I've got contracts with the government, and hopefully when you get out you'll think about staying here for about a year and just learning the biz."

I don't know how I feel but like my best friend jen bear told me on my birthday "Andre..It's not always about you."


On a lighter note I chilled with my friend-girl and got the rundown on the fashion show I missed, and just spent most of the day moving out and looking for tax free deals (I found none) and hitting up some new thrift stores.




Of course I walked around on the stilts! what kind of man would I be if I didn't.



I found this leather jacket that fits me perfectly! It's so vintage and nice, and it officially makes me a hipster. This picture does it no justice but when I get my shemagh I got from bahrain, the picture will be complete!

As soon as the temp drops, I'm busting the jacket out! I really think the shemagh will set me off for reals....

Andre said...

Stew that's a Dragon roll, with eel on top... I consider myself an adventurous eater but that eel, I don't know how to feel about it. It's got the texture of that chewy part of catfish. But it tastes like...I don't know I really can't describe the taste...
