Who you with?

By now I’m pretty sure everyone’s familiar with the show “Power” and the dynamics surrounding the main character’s (Ghost) contrasting relationship between his wife (Tasha) and his girlfriend (Angela). Just in case you’re not, here’s a brief description: Ghost is married to Tasha whom he has 3 children with and has maybe the biggest drug operation New York has ever seen. Tasha earned Ghosts trust (which lead to her becoming his wife and the mother of his children) during a routine stop by the police which could have landed him in jail for quite some time had she not had his back. When it comes to protecting Ghost, Tasha would do anything. She even lied to Angela to cover for him. However, she made one fatal mistake. Tasha had an affair with someone who worked for ghost and ended up being apart of a conspiracy to kill him. Does that one mistake cancel out all of her other acts of loyalty or is she still considered loyal?

On the other hand we have Angela. Ghost has known Angela since he was 15. Angela knew ghost before he became a drug lord; Her Jamie, always smart with a knack for business. She loves Jamie but hates ghost. Angela will do anything to protect Jamie from ghosts mistakes. she cleans up what he does to protect her fantasy of her and Jamie living together happily ever after like they planned to when they were both teenagers. Although she always seems to come through in a clutch, she leaves a suspense that’s makes the viewers a little weary and uncomfortable. Does her hesitancy make her less loyal or is she more loyal because she has Jamie’s best interest at hand and always pulls through no matter how hesitant she initially is under pressure?

So I guess the real question here is what type of people do you consider more loyal to you? The type of people who invest in what you are or the people that invest in who you are?



They tricked us. They told us to “go to school” and “get good grades” and for what? To get out and make minimum wage? So they could use our college debt to make us the new slaves?, while giving away this same opportunity away for free to inmates up state. I remember My math teacher use to always ask me “do you wanna go to penn state or state pen” and every time I get my monthly statement I’m finding out how his logic didn’t make since. 

It’s like this degree is just for bragging rights.a reason for me to correct everyones grammar and get accused of acting white. 

I did not take over a hundred hours worth of credits, max out all my account swiping debit, and build an unhealthy tolerance for morning hangoversJust to live a lifestyle any less than epic. 

So give me liberty or give me death. Because I’m willing to die to regain back my self respect. 

School’s In 

It was all my fault. I was lacking confidence. I was scared of the unknown and most of all I was afraid of what they thought. I over analyzed every situation which in turn altered my destination. Forced to take these scenic routes because the original path had road blocks made up of my own doubt. I chose to hide from my problems instead of using my gift of understanding to solve them. I didn’t want to choose because I didn’t want to lose. Lose apart of me that I might not ever get back, but I gotta pick a path soon and get back on track. Time to starve my weaknesses and feed my strengths. Time to take on my role as the star player and get up off the bench.
