Day I retired from the Army....1 June 2016 As the clock struck 12, SFC Thornton looked at Derahn with sad eyes. They knew this day was coming where they would part ways after 22 years. They thanked each other for the good times(marriage, kids, milestones) and apologized for the bad(divorce, failed relationships, separations). They both wanted what was best for each other. After a warm embrace, SFC Thornton walked towards the formation area, and Derahn walked under the arch of civilian life. They did make a promise to keep in contact and if they wanted to see each other again, all they had to do was look in the mirror.πŸ˜€ If anyone asks where SFC T is, he'll be at a desk doing maintenance on his eyelids. πŸ˜‚ Now to get Samuel Jackson to narrate my life story. It requires the egregious use of the word motherfucker! πŸ˜‹✌🏾️
I got a very disturbing email from my math professor today with changes to the syllabus. What kills me is that people have a great opportunity to attend college and fail to do any of the homework let alone sit in the class and don't buy the book? I don't mind helping people but damn...why piss away an opportunity? I'm glad he's now going to start making students turn in every homework assignment if they get less than 75 up to the next test after this first test on Thursday....how easy is it to be accountable for self? (This THOT is old)
Selfishness has no place in life...if you have the right people in your life, trust and believe you won't lose yourself in being giving of yourself. I think that's a lot of people's fear. Why hold back? Why have these insignificant hang ups? If you have a person who's giving you the best of themselves and you're not, you will burn them out and they will run from you like a mosquito out of an AIDS clinic! Show growth, show that person everything they give is not in vain! Speak their language of love! Especially if they took time to speak yours! For those who say no....there's others that say YES! #bemindful #bevigilant #betheGOAT
I'm not the best advice giver on relationships yet I do know why they fail most times. I had a friend tell me she doesn't chase men. Well I told her she's gonna run herself back into single life. Don't trip...I get how the past can scorn the future, but we decent men like to know that you women are interested as well and not on playing games BS. I say if you want the time for you, you have to put in the time as well. I hear women say all the time they want a decent man, but won't nurture the courting or relationship. I can't take credit for this THOT...shout out to my homie Lilo!!
I look in the face of adversity and laugh because I don't let it beat me! I had it a little rough However I had enough! Yeah I am a little nervous about retiring from the military because of uncertainties but hey when you been doing this for 22 years it happens! I look in the mirror I see the man my stepdad and uncles raised me to be, I look at my left arm I see my kids tatted on me, and I look at my right arm and see where I'm from...I'm a born hustler who sold raid to bugs and salt to slugs! In about a year or so, I'll look back on this moment and chuckle! I got people looking up to me😁✌🏾️
I've always been one who went his own way, has a big heart, and very friendly to people which used to get me in trouble at times. I can see why my family is very protective of me to this day! I love them for it... I'm a product of the phrase "It takes a village to raise a child" so even though I'm an adult, most of my elders still saw us as the adorable kids they knew. They're not always happy with our paths and decisions even in some cases making it vocal. At the end of the day, if you're happy it's all that matters.
