2Pac - I Get Around Feat. The Digital Underground
my favorite pac song.
Never forget that your education is a privilege that you were fortunate enough to have.
Whether it was the right parents, the right environment, the right financial capabilities, or even the right level of responsibility focus and work ethic, you were placed in a position to focus on education where as a lot of other people were not allotted that same blessing.
A college degree doesn’t make you smarter. It makes you fortunate. And it places the responsibility on yourself for the type of professional, person, and scholar you want to be to the world.
Night has become a time of restlessness for me lately. Thoughts begin to flood my mind as soon as my head hits the pillow. When everything is turned off, all that accompanies me are my thoughts. And I think a lot. Thoughts lead me to many places. Sometimes they lead me to excitement and happiness. Other times they lead me more so into anxiousness. Either way, I find myself traveling to and from, revisiting my past, brainstorming the future as I look up at my ceiling. Something about the darkness above me inspires me to fill it with my own images, my own thoughts. And rather than the night being a spread of shade to rest under, it has become a vast empty canvas for me to paint on.
The Pharcyde - Otha Fish
one of my favorite songs.
Don’t ever do anything in this life to feel appreciated. Whatever good you do, do it because you take pride in it. Appreciation is fleeting. It’s great to feel appreciated but don’t let it dictate what you offer to the world.
