We're not in Detroit anymore....
So my job shipped me to Nebraska. We got a contract doing some areospece stuff (can't really elaborate..but I'm a designer) ...off and on till maybe September. I been so reluctant to go out. Just knowing its not the same as been in the D.
Now, don't get me twisted... I'm in no way sheltered. Been to Mexico, Jamaica, London, Africa.....and a lot of the united states. But here...its just different.
One of my co workers, we real cool. Side bar... Only brotha on this trip. Anyhow... So co worker cool, but he on another shift. So I been really going back to my room after work for the most part. Had a damn good steak in downtown Lincoln the other night.... Really good.
A Friend asked me could I move to a place we are the minority..... And I couldn't do it. No offense, but they don't understand the struggle. And not even just my people....but MY people. I love my family and tru friends to the death. Even in a city with black folks... Still couldn't replace my real friends and family. Never thought being single and traveling would seem so bad. I got a summer of it, so won't cry about it. I'm going home for the weekend,but only till Sunday... Then its back to Nebraska for 2 weeks.
