she didn’t want me calling her a healer or spiritual person, auntie connie was jus fine. she is one of dem dat can see spirits (dead people), know what is wrong with you and why, see da future, and all sorts of other weird phenomenons. she came from portland to visit my familia on maui. she’s been here for a week and had tons of fun but like all things they end and is leaving today.
she gave me a quick session of her magic. she placed her fingers in a cup filled with an oil dat smelled really nice. placing her oily fingers on my hands, forehead, and chest she began to speak. these are the things she told me, i was prone to accidents so be careful, i do surf and da percentage of having an accident does go up. thank gawd i have medical now. i den told her dat i wasn’t a religious person, she replied “you aren’t but you are a very spiritual person”, “wow” i told her. might i add dat she wasn’t religious either and like me was very spiritual. she continued on saying dat many gurls like me and are wanting my attention (her definition of many in dis case is probably one, two, or non at all) but i lack da interest in most of dem. she also stated dat i was gonna get married before thirty-five (i’m in no rush jus yet) den her session ended. i wish she gave me da name of da lucky lady, would make da chase easier. thought bubble ——-> insert: hmmmmmmm
while surfing yesterday morning the water was glassy and wasn’t churning as much. i noticed a few natural debris as i sat on the board waiting for the next set of waves. then i saw something dat is becoming to common in our oshen waters. there they were plastic debris of ziploc, cups, and bottles floating with da oshens current. thank you idiots who are to lazy to throw their trash away properly. i bet it takes the same amount of energy throwing it on the ground as it is to properly dispose of it in the trash. be akamai, don’t litter because this is what happens. i managed to get a few plastic materials out of da water yesterday and today, wish i could have gotten more but i only had one pocket.
they kinda look like mega potagee manowars. i got stung by one twice yesterday and it sucked really bad. still i continued to surf, i wasn’t gonna let it ruin my fun playing outside.
my three days off is up and it’s time to go back werk. why does werk hav to be a necessary evil for most. lets face it, da only reason i’m werking right now is for my medical coverage because accidents do happen and i never know if i’m gonna need it. spending munny is also a reason i werk gotsta put fuel both in my mini and belly. can’t forget bout dem bills, bills, bills. as much as i spend i probably save as well for da rainy season and future skool expenses.
werking is something we are forced to do, not wat we want to do. i see it as modern slavery implemented by the rich corporations dat keep making munny from our blood, sweat and tears. we make the products they sell and get paid a percentage. dat same percentage we earn is minuscule to what we actually spend on da product itself. just imagine if we didn’t need to werk and each of us all shared everything we had, well in a perfect world we could spend eight hours doing da things we love, another eight hours spending quality time with family and friends, which is much needed in da current society we live in, and da final eight hours sleeping and recharging our batteries because of all da fun we had dat day.
i know we’ve all asked ourselves where’d da time go because there wasn’t enough time in a day to complete da things we needed to. well i really think it’s because of werk taking a lot of our time from our personal time. nothing i can do but to hope dat my future career is gonna be one i enjoy waking up to. i hate werk…..i really do.
tee-you-em-bee-ell-are: those six letters combined to form tumblr is more than jus a werd to me. it is a place for me to reflect on my life and express my thoughts, feelings, experiences, rants and blah blah blahs. sorta like a virtual time capsule for keep safe, so dat in da future i will be able to look back upon it and hopefully share it with my offsprings sumday. though it might not tell who i am as a complete person, it does show a glimpse of my soul, if and only if i ste true to myself. tumblr or blogging in general is definitely an experience unlike any other dat continues to teach me about myself and da world around me. those other social networking sites are flooded with too many thoughtless and meaningless status updates which never tells you anything about da other person but dat they choose to use their free time to update everyone with every single second of their day, these feeling aren’t towards everyone. so i say cheers to dem status update whores, though sum awesome ones pop up from time to time.
if you think you are beaten, your are.
if you think dat you dare not, you don’t.
if yu’d like to win, but you think you can’t, it’s almost certain you won’t.
if you think yu’ll lose, yu’ve lost, for out in da world yu’ll find, success begins with a fellow’s will; it’s all in da state of mind.
if you think you are outclassed, you are.
yu’ve got to think high to rise, yu’ve got to be sure of yurself before you can ever win a prize.
life’s battles don’t always go to da strongest or da fastest, but sooner or later da one who wins is da one who thinks he can!

i continue to be fascinated, inspired and happy altogether dat dis guy is our current president. he is trying his hardest to steer dis country in da right direction but all it takes is one bad apple and in dis case it’s a whole bunch of corrupt apples (corporations + politicians) dat continue to try and bring him down.
since da late 1700’s dis country has been led by a white president wit da exception of our current president who is of color. think about it! wat would it mean if a black president was to take da country from trillions in deficit to a surplus economy, otherwise succeed as a president. it would mean da down fall and irrelevancy of white men in power and da restoration of wealth back to da middle class. it would mean dat anyone of color can take da country to prosperity other den a white person.
obama has done more positive for da country in two years den bush ever did during both of his terms in office. everything dat he has tried to do to move this country forward da republicans hav shot down and voted against, even if it was something a republican introduced before obama became president. da end game for da republicans is to see obama fail because dat would mean: hey look we gave a black man a chance to lead da country and he has done nothing but fail so next election vote white and we’ll steer dis country back in a better direction, which usually means take more of your money and give it to da already wealthy.
yes da country is not at its best but we would hav lost more jobs if obama and his administration didn’t do anything, da economy would have been far worse. da economy is slow to get back up but it is moving in a positive direction. da small business bill he is trying to get passed is being voted down by da republicans (no surprise), if passed in da senate and house it is supposed to help small business’s so they can go ahead and hire more employees which then takes people off unemployment benefits. da new energy bill dat is being pushed will also provide more jobs here in da u.s. while helping with da current state of our environment. though health insurance reform passed, we won’t benefit from dem and see results till 2013, all these will take time so be patient.
also da bush tax extension only benefits da wealthiest top two percent of americans. if extended which obama is against will add on three to four trillion on top of our already high deficit, this you have to understand isn’t payed for. so where does dat money come from???…….da money comes from us ninety-eight percent of americans. dat is why obama is trying to extend da middle-class tax cut which makes more sense. we don’t need tax extension for da rich all they do is sit on da money and not put it into da economy. let dem pay for da taxes, a certain percent of their billions won’t even break their banks. dat little percent of their wealth would be enough to cover da other ninety-eight percent, thus keeping more money in our pockets to spend on ourselves which help stimulate da economy.
illuminati, free masons, new world order…….call it watever you want. i was once very ignorant and believed da hype or conspiracy to da point where i couldn’t get enough of it. i now believe it is a bunch of bull and no such thing. it is sed dat president’s are put into power as puppets to do watever it is dat they wanted done. if dat is da case den why is president obama da current president. he is president because democracy still works in america. voted president for da people by da people. everything dat is happening to him is against da grain of what is supposed to happen. politicians and other so called news organization who are supposed to be in cahoots wit him are being racist towards him, blocking everything he has tried to get passed, accused of not being born in da u.s. and therefore not our official president, called a socialist, accused of wanting to kill old people if obama care is passed, etc…etc…etc… they want him to fail wen they’re supposed to help him succeed in their evil plans to rule da world, dat logic alone does not help out da existence of da new world order.
obama has my vote in 2012.
i tumblr therefore i write.

one. it hurts to love someone and not be loved in return. but what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel.
two. a sad thing in life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go.
three. the best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.
four. it’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.
five. it takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
six. don’t go for looks, they can deceive. don’t go for wealth, even that fades away. go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.
seven. dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be. because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.
eight. always put yourself in the other’s shoes. if you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.
nine. a careless word may kindle strife. a cruel word may wreck a life. a timely word may level stress. but a loving word may heal and bless.
ten. the happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
eleven. love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with a tear. when you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. live your life so that when you die, you’re the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.
question: what would you like to be in five years?
answer: happy ( :
i love you with all my heart. you continue to give and sacrifice your time in order to help others in need and not ask for anything in return. you are unselfish and treat everyone as if they are your own. you are an amazing person and i admire you for that. even if i tried i’d only be half the human being you are.
i remember you scolding me almost everyday of my life about everything i did wrong and i hated you for that, but now i understand why…….it is because you cared and loved me. if it wasn’t for your continuous scoldings and lectures i still would be that kid who never grew up. i’m sorry i gave you a hard time during my younger years.
i enjoy pulling out all your white hairs that i have given you over the years, those simplest of conversations that we have and of course your delicious food that continues to fill my tummy. i wanna give you a hug and tell you that i love you for as long as i’m allowed to and hope that the feeling you get will never fade away.
you have given me everything i needed in life, which is your love and support and an opportunity to get educated. i’m the person i am today because of you and for that i thank you.
jus farted den giggled!
