Having many of my successes older made me feel excited about celebrating successes over thirty even over thirty five. I decided I would celebrate my successes older.

Sometimes as a kid my family lived in a two-family brownstone in Brooklyn. My mom’s side of the family lived together in Brooklyn in Crown Heights and had to really budget for every thing they bought. I try to make sure I think of others. I try to think of my mom and my grandma. I try to think of my stepfather also. He raised me since I was ten or eleven when he married my mom. I lost my biological father when I was about two years old. I also remember the state of the world being different. I am optimistic in my outlook. I see the world as getting worse but I think the world will start to get better. I know God put me on this earth to do more than promote myself. I feel cool as hell to be blogging with four nominations in the past two years. I can’t wait to upgrade to my probationary license and take the road test at the DMV.
