I am by no means a paranoid narcissist.  But it gets on my damn nerves that whenever i go to gyms throughout the country? Here come the mexicans, asians and white folks trying to get a pic or selfie with them.

They have no idea who i am.  They just think i'm some famous athlete.

I tried explaining this to a friend of mine who is a famous mountain biker.  He said he understood why, but he had to see it for himself.  so we decided to enter the gym separately.

He paid the $10 drop in fee, and no one even recognized him.  He was just some white kid to them.  He's actually Spanish.

I walked in, the front desk personnel came running over just to scan me in.  I went into the locker room, and of course the damn janitors (mexican females) grabbed their broom and mops and started cleaning up where i stood at my locker.

When i walked into the gym, G noticed immediately folks started smiling and staring in my direction.  Really?  He stood no more than 2 feet away looking on.  When a white female rifled through her gym bag whipped out her iPhone, set it to camera/video apparently, ran across the gym to take a pic.

I saw this in advance, and stepped behind some equipment.  She went looking for me, when she noticed had already, put my hair up in a bun, and pulled my hoodie over my face - and stood there with looking dead at her.  G.  looked at her as well.  She turned red in the face, and walked back across the gym.

THEN she gathers up her gym bag when she sees me doing bicep curls.  She puts her sh**t right down next to mine, and pretends to work out. I just grabbed my bottle and moved away from her.

G. is pretty hyper-aware of his surroundings.  And he asked after i was finished: "How do you handle this kind of crap every time you work out?"

Some days i can.. some days, i can't..

But what i didn't understand was G., was actually a celebrity in the mountain biking world?  And not one of those idiots even recognized him..

What's even more ironic?

Reporters are not reporting because they want to make a difference.  They are reporting because it's money in the bank for "each click" on their headline.

They are making serious "bank" off of trump and his administration. And THAT is all that matters to them.

We basically have nothing to stop Trump.. Nothing..

The reporters just report.  Like dogs that only bark.

The protesters  just protest.. Like dogs that only bark..

People criticize...  So this is the only arsenal we have?  Criticizing and reporting.  Pathetic..

And when all is said and done.  Trump and his administration keep right on moving.. 

Reporting and protesting does absolutely nothing - and trump KNOWS this..

Old iranian saying:  The dogs may bark, but the caravan moves on..

These old folks here in Florida drive the same way as if they were in wheelchairs. 

There's one old coot, right now in an on coming lane right across from our cottage on a side street - parked right in the middle of the street on his cell phone - front of the stop sign.  Facing the wrong direction.  What's even scarier? No one is saying anything - they see him suddenly sitting there head on.. and they swerve around him.

Like it's the norm...Confused

Well,

That girl her have it.. she deserved it.  I've always said:  "the ugliest people i know are narcissists."  You know them.. Constantly, trying to be the center of attention.  Jealous of white girls because they're just more fit. Constantly going on about makeup, nails, hair - but you have an a** about 2 ax handles wide - yet have the nerve to say: "Girl, my sh**t is tight".. Come on.. I've seen better faces on a Rolex.. And you could easily stand to lose at least #50-60 lbs. of blubber.

Then when someone honestly assesses you, mentally as well as physically - you get mad.  And demand that they leave your website.

That woman was correct and pretty damn accurate.  What i liked?  She didn't back down from the website owner..

Kudos..

I have been in gyms for years throughout the country.  And i can definitely say the worse clientele in the gyms at this point:

Rich white frat boys

Rich men who are used to having their way

Mexicans..

The frat boys usually hang in groups.  If you reject them?  Guess what they'll do?  They run to the front desk and make up a story about you being "rude" to them.  I kid you not.

The Rich men, will literally chase you down right there in front of their wives.

And the Mexicans?  There's something wrong with their perspective. If you reject them, they think you like them, and are playing "hard to get".. They will not only approach you.. but if you tell them to leave you alone while walking away?  They will come after you. They don't let up.  Even when the manager intervenes. They'll start talking trash with fellow mexicans saying crap about black women and how stuck up they are.  Then if THAT doesn't work, they'll start talking crap about how ugly black women are.  Really?  Well, if i was THAT ugly - why the hell are you chasing  after me in the gym??Confused

And trust me I definitely know that life isn't easy. I have had a lot of obstacles thrown at me. I have realized that if you make bad choices your future won't be too bright. So right now I am trying to make the best choices possible. But right now I have a lot on my plate. Like I said before I am saving up to move out, trying to get a higher paying job and trying to knock out these loans as fast as possible, even though I don't have to start paying until June I have already started paying because my biggest fear is that they will defaultCry. I am glad to have my mom, but at the same time she is really pushing me to get a higher paying job, she sends me jobs every day and she also tells me to keep saving for a car. (I already am) Right now she has no job and it seems that she is trying to get me a job more than she is trying to get herself one. It's kind of irritating honestly. All I'm trying to do is get myself together the best I can. The real world starts NOW.

Yeah, her helping you is irritating now? But your mom is just as worried as you are.  That woman has PRIDE!LOL  Not only for herself, but for her daughter as well.

Loans don't get paid over-night.  This i found out the hard way.  Every time i would see those bills show up in the mail, i'd grit my teeth.  The funny thing about paying off college loans is that when that final day came, i didn't give a crap.  I was too busy paying off the mortgage, the car, clothes, food, and other necessities.Confused

Bills never stop.  And if the loans default, there's nothing you can do but keep looking for work.  For many of us, our "biggest fears" have happened, and we made it through them. Once you get over those "biggest fears" you find out they weren't so bad - then as you keep living?  You'll learn to realize that your "biggest fears" - are nothing but things that scare you - but they don't break you.

You see, that's the difference between minorities and white folks or okey-dokey people.  If those types face one "biggest fear" and conquer them?  They make movies about it.  And write songs.

But we minorities who have dignity, and pride?  We conquer hundreds of "biggest fears" every single day, and it's not that big of a deal.  We come out still, with our pride intact.  Just like your mom.

yeah, she's worried, we all worry.  But if you keep doing what's in front on you, that's the main objective.  Sucks, because there are times, i'd rather sit there and worry.  But it doesn't seem to accomplish anything.





Yes we minorities are rather tough. I have had to be strong my whole life. You have a good point I have overcome a lot of fears, a ton.  Like I said it's going to be time for me to start paying in June so what I plan on doing is saving HARD until then so I can do a big fat payment. And worrying doesn't do a thing, so I just try to count my blessings. In good news I have an interview on Wednesday.Clap

LOLLOLLOL

Have you ever seen your mother give that quiet chuckle, kind of shake her head and smile?

I'm not laughing at you, just reminding myself, that everyone who chooses a different path - will never have it easy.  Ever.

Journalism is  a difficult field.  My oldest sister and older brother did it while they were in the military.  It was easier for her in the  service because the training/education was free.  But when she had to do it in the "real world" - especially being black?  It literally drove her crazy.  White folks liked her stories - but she didn't have a degree to back up her talent.  Back in those days - you had to prove yourself.  Even if other white folks weren't as eloquent as she was, they trumped her with - that's right - their degrees in journalism.

It was far worse for blacks in those days, than it is today.  Far worse.

All i ask, is that you keep trying.  No matter what.  (Remember those 3 words), if you can't remember anything else. okay?

I can't tell you something that i haven't practiced myself.  And i always remember that poem, "Life ain't no crystal stair".. If it ever gets that way? Check yourself, and your choices.LOL

And also, thank your lucky stars for your mom. A lot of us can't say we have someone in our lives like her.  Smile
