This post is dedicated to last week and all of its glory.
No, but seriously, this post is for everyone who said “school sucks, life sucks, I have been duped”, in that order. If that was you last week, you deserve a glass of wine because “walah”, you’ve made it a new week! If this wasn’t you, well, all you get is a thumbs up because no one likes a shiner.
Sometimes I genuinely think I am being punk’d; I seriously yell out “alright yall, I know you are punkin’ me, where’s Ashton Kutcher?”. Whenever I feel this way, I realize I have to readjust my attitude because if not life will be punkin’ me, and instead I need to punk life. Meaning, I will always come out on top because I will be relentless in completing a task or goal. Diddy taught me during CBC weekend, dedication and preparation are what set you apart and if you look like money, that’s what you attract. I translate this to work really hard and allow yourself to fail while looking your best and being as positive as possible.
Finally, I will leave you with this tidbit of wisdom from the show, A Different World:
“I may have been born in the slums. But the slums weren’t born in me. I can rise above my circumstance”. – Rev. Jesse Jackson
