I feel like an old man. Nothing really excites me like it use to. I use to go to the gas station and buy packs of skittles and eat them all in the same day. That was joy to 15 year old Kory. Nowadays waking up excites me. Knowing that my bills are paid for the month excites me. Going to HEB and seeing California Pizza Kitchen pizza’s on sale excites me a lot, I might just treat myself to a pack of skittles at the register just because. It’s like the world I once lounged so much in slowly no longer have a place of desire in my heart anymore.
Mannn i remember when the cinnamon challenge was popping, my mom had already told me not to do it because she saw some kids on the news had choked from it…. that went in one ear and out the other, I got a oovoo call from my bro Wendell and we decided we were gonna do the challenge. My mom was posted in the living room so I had to sneak past her to get some cinnamon out the cabinets and a fork then make it back to my room with it without her stopping me for a routine stop and search. After making it back to my room we got the video recorded and couldn’t wait to post it because we already knew it was funnythennahoe. Turns out one of my cousins saw it and called my mama and told her about the challenge on my page. First, she got on my head for doing the challenge, then she saw all my pictures on facebook of me big flexed up. I’m talking about all the females liking the pics and commenting lil fly stuff trying to get me to bite the bait. This was my favorite one
lmaooooo don’t say any jokes now.
but no for real, my mama made me delete all my pictures with my shirt off or money out. I was so hurt, she stood over me while I did it too so I couldn’t even finesse the game like I wanted to.
Those days are over now though, now I call my mom almost daily to see if anything she says will give me that boost to keep going. This is crazy man, time went by too fast. I don’t think I appreciated the times where life was free enough. I always tell myself I wouldn’t change anything in my past, I’d just want to sit back and watch it all over again. Coming to adulthood has been a rough transition for me. I sit back and listen to old folks talk a lot more now, they tell you all the gems you need to know for life before it comes to you. The pastor said this Sunday “don’t you think it’s funny how when you leave for college you think your parents are the worst and can’t stand what they’re saying, but when you come back you want to be all around them because they are so wise all of a sudden….. there wasn’t any all of a sudden, you just begun to experience life in a new way than you’re accustomed.” Life is all about adjustments and how you can react to the curveballs life may throw you. Make your life a book worth reading. It’s time to begin a new chapter, sharpen your pencils.
