Well, I have been in Atlanta for less than a week and it has been semi-eventful. My car roof fills up with water and starts falling in my back seats. Yeah, not good…my sunroof was faulty. Comcast has pissed me off to the third degree. I have to wait until Sunday to get anything from them. So, no phone, no internet, no cable…I’m like WTF. Not pleased! I just walk around my apartment complex, play solitaire, shop for stuff for my place.

I have good credit! The importance of keeping good credit has never been more obvious than now. I haven’t had to pay one deposit. I’m excited, there is a lot to do, but I can’t do much. I need to save my money. It’s a lump sum now, but it has to last for two weeks and rent will be due in a few days.

My brother from Boston was in Atlanta this weekend he helped me move. Thank God! I was seconds away from hiring some Mexicans (my uncle left to talk to them). I know SHAME ON ME, but I needed help. Others brothers came once all the moving was done. It was good to see them. We had a great time. One of them may join me in Atlanta.

Everyone check out Hill Harper book. He is a great guy! I’m impressed with this book of his. He is honest in there. For example, he admitted to catching a STD. Who would have thought? I’m using someone wireless internet, which is illegal (so I hear), so let me get off of this. Who am I foolin’? I need to catch up, because this will be disconnected tomorrow, I’m certain. Then, it will be me and Love Jones again.

This is it (quick post)

U-HAUL check

Money check

Packed check

Fight with my mother about money. Check! We keep having the issue of money. Like she "misquotes" prices or something to that affect and spends the left over money. This has happen twice and we had another problem today, but it was solved quickly. I think it kinda hurt her when I let it be known I don't trust you with my money. "You have done this twice." I'm ready ATLANTA, Ga. It's for good this time. My friends/brothers are coming up, but not helping me move. Aint that some mess. One is coming to shop. The other just wants to be noisey, I'm sure. How is he living? The first is doing something the same thing, I'm sure. The other is already there. I'm ready to catch up with my brother. He has been in Boston, which he hates. I'm recruiting him to Atlanta slowly.

Moving

Moving is causing me to be way more emotional than I expected. I was so ready to go. "I'm going to the A, A." I finally start packing today and I realize I'm going to miss this place terribly. It's like are u serious. I'm leaving fo'real this time. I feel so in-between. Too big for where I am, but nervous about where your going. It's crazy! I'm not going to be ready at this going away party Friday. Seeing my family surrounding me like this is going to mess me up. I was teary eyed when I left church Sunday. That was my last Sunday for sometime. I probably will not be back home until 2007. I didn't have to go away to college, so it's like I'm going through emotional roller coaster now.

What's going on with your girl Beyonce? Have you seen the "Ring the Alarm" Video? I don't know what theme she is going for with the album, but these crazy movements, and quick scene changes in videos are confusing me. I like the sound though. She is being aggressive I like that.

What is love?

I have had this thought for some time. What is love? The term love is used so often and so freely that it has lost it's value. It's use to get sex, stop an argument, etc. I really pondered this question when my great uncle re-married. He re-married because he want someone there with him. I don't think he was in love nor is he in love now. He just wanted the opposite sex around (that's my assumption mixed with his carefully chosen words), but my goodness would you go as far as marrying a person because you want someone to take care of you? I know love can be formed in several ways mother and son, friends, but I talking about romantic/relationship love. Is it really the feeling you get in your stomach or I can't get over them, so it had to be love. I remember this one woman saying that she could not eat because she could see her ex boyfriend face in the food. I'm like WHAT TYPE OF stuff did he do to you? You see his face in your food? Something is seriously wrong with you.

I'm not sure what love is, but I do know love is long suffering, patient, and kind. With that said, I realize all of those characteristics are things you choose to be do. So is love a choice? Give me your feedback

I'm back

A brother has went through. I promise, I went to hell with gasoline clothes on, but God gave me a peace of mind during the whole process. People kept asking me...how are you going to pull it off and what are you thinking, but I just wanted to let you all know I overcame everything that came my way. My faith has grown expoenentially. My character has been worked on and at the end of the day, I can say, it was good for me to suffer this summer. God has proven himself to me and I'm grateful.

What's been going on blogland? I'm schedule to move back to Atlanta, GA next week. Moving is so expensive. I will spend $2000 in no time flat. You have rent, pro-rated rent, utilities, food, etc. I really have been on the grind the pass few weeks, so my life has been pretty dull socially. I'm happy to be back and I plan on putting more effort in this blog of mine.
