Life Must Go On..

So election night was ok for me. Yeah, Obama But i was dead tired. I actually was sleep when he got over the 270 electoral votes, was a long day. I could never take away the significants of an African American being president . In thinking about it, it took way more than the black vote for him to become president. Although it was a great turn out for the black vote, we didnt totally get him here . If took alot of non black voters as well to know we needed a change, and McCain wasnt the solution. Doesn't hurt that Bush was horrible too.And also, i wasnt the emotional broken down African American that i saw and heard about. I didnt cry or sob or anything like that. I mean , i was happy. I still know the significants and all...just no tears..sorry.

 Been wondering also, what do i expect of this President. I dont know...just a better economic country again. The Clinton times were great. Found myself singing "..just got paid....friday night.." often, lol.Fast forward to today,  and the bills still cometh . I remember hearing a interview of Drew Carey. Cant remember it word for word, but he was asked about the best thing he enjoys about being successful, and Drew said not having to worry about bills. I totally would be less stressed out if i did have to worry about bills. that would be the life. But since i do, i wont daydream about that much. I have an uncle who used to ALWAYS talk about what he'd do with all the millions he'd have once he hit the lotto . Dont get me wrong, its cool to dream. But i heard it all the time. Like, man..whats up with the present. Lets keep that moving. 

Just this past October, i made it a year on the new job...guess its not new anymore. I remember the first months, wondering would i even make my 90 days. Was a long road...but my year has came and went, and im pleased. With the michican economy as it is..its great to be working. Heard that at my old place of work, they got fools reapplying for there jobs...then, IF they get it back...they have to take a pay cut to damn near entry level pay. So you telling me that i have to do the same job...but less pay.....really interesting. I swear, being under employed is damn close to unemployed. 

The Weekend is here, and YAY for that. I did a post about the Acer Aspire One laptop that i wanted, but i decided to go with the Asus Eee Pc. Its a real cool small laptop. Will be a chill weekend for the most part, and looking foward to it. 

Have a good weekend to all..

You don't have to be sorry you didn't cry. I had this indescribable urge to cry though...couldn't stop myself from giving in to it.

Would those be shoe bills? lol

Enjoy your weekend.

No worries about not crying. Neither did I. Did get the chills.

Was up till 3 that night. Just couldn't go to sleep.

Congrats on the year in at the gig. I remember those beginning days, lol.

My granddaddy said that we are born a bill and we'll die a bill. Make the best of the time in the middle.
