Skinny Bits: 10.26.12
“Call me crazy but at least she call me.” If this isn’t one of the most annoying song lyrics, ever. Why do people think this is okay? “I’m going to act an ass so that you’ll pay attention to me” is not behavior befitting an adult.
If I have any reason to call you crazy, I’m going to stop calling. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
I’ve begun to refer to my hypothetical life partner as Mr. Common Law SBG. This makes me chuckle.
In other news of nicknames for hypothetical significant others, a homey told me that I need to stop crime fighting along and find a Dark Knight to roam Gotham (Cleveland) with. My friends have no sense.
Did ya’ll know I have a favorite Drake song? It’s “Think Good Thoughts,” which is from his pre-Young Money days. It features a 9th Wonder-produced Anita Baker sample, Phonte, and Elzhi. If you’ve never heard it, you may not be a fan.
In speaking with one of my favorite youngins, she said: “All I attract are Drakes.” My reply? “That’s because all the guys your age are Drakes. I don’t fool with men born after 1985.”
On Wednesday, 300 students at my alma mater–Wilberforce University–staged a protest where they threatened to withdraw from the school and march over to neighboring and rival institution, Central State University to request transfer forms. It’s a sad, but expected state of affairs for a place that holds such rich history and amazing memories for me. But I’m proud of the students for taking a stand for their education. I’m hoping for the best, but honestly, I don’t see Wilberforce surviving another year.
I think I look good in scarlet and grey so I’m petitioning to be an honorary Ohio State University Buckeye.
A piece of wisdom from The Wire: “There you go giving a fuck when it’s not your turn to give a fuck.” When I see conversations brewing on social media around relationships, children, and/or marriage, this quote keeps me from entering the fray. It’s not my turn to give a fuck about any of the above.
I answer a lot of questions lately with “I do what I want.” People tend to respond with “Smh” or “You right.” Either way, the conversation stops there.
