10 things to tell myself to help me 10 years ago!!

It is 2009 I have been out of high school for 6 going on 7 years, and out of middle school for exactly 10 years
The middle school and high school Transaction was a huge one in my life. Where I felt as if Middle school was possibly the best (school) years of my life!!! The only thing is I couldn't capitalize on the phone I had in middle school so much in high school.
Things Changed, People Changed, and more importantly I changed.

10 years ago today would be my 2nd week of my freshman year in high school.
So I'm going to write it as if it were then and maybe the end of 8th grade.
The scary part is I can do this for 10 years ago (I'm getting old...hellllllppp)

Young Anthony,

1. Cut your Braids, or at the very least keep them up weekly. You might as well cut them because you would save money, time, and your hair (since im getting those side bald spot) Plus you will get more respect from not only adults, but your peers as well.

2. Stick with Sports. I know your not lazy because every time you play something you go 110% but you run out of gas. Just keep working at it. You would be in better shape, more to do, and know more people have, more stories and popularity.

3. DO THE DAMN HOMEWORK, good grades are important. Your certainly not impressing anyone playing the dumb role or im too cool for school role. Trust me it will help you get in to a better college earlier than what you would.

4. Decide what you want to do with life sooner, it will help you with college choice, and what you do while in college. I know your still young, but thats why they have career services. I'll give you a hint***remember how you thought you may want to be a teacher**

5. Do not get wrapped up LuLu. Yes you guys are like really good friends, but it would save a lot of heartache, and open up alot more female opportunities later on. Broadening your horizons.

6. Intertwine more with other schools. Once again more people known, possibly more opportunities (female wise and connections.) Also you wouldn't of been split between your middle school friends, as much.

7. Show more attention to all groups of people. You did well with most groups, but you def could of done better. Use your special talent of interaction and getting along with anyone. it will benefit your understanding of people better (although Its fairly good now).

8. SAVE YOUR MONEY. Would help out when you really need that cash in 10th 11th and 12th grade. Whether you know it or not you make more money than you think cutting grass even though you give your dad alot.

9. Do Not go back for Seconds, thirds, hell fourths on food. Especially on that hamburger helper cheesy hashbrown and Spaghetti. You won't be as big, and You wouldnt have to work as hard as you are now.

10. Don't let Danielle out of your sights at Hyltons homecomming. Especially since you had the biggest crush on her. But Sheila and Hillary stole you away, don't let that happen.. Unless you capitalize on hillary!!!!

Women don't want patience they want now

"You can only judge a man by his Patience, not his intentions!"

A quote told to me by one of my wise friends Terrance.

Which couldn't be any closer to the truth.
Now we both may have different views/interpertations on this, but this is how I see it.

Women, are probably the most impatient species on the planet. I say that with the up most respect.

They claim they want [insert desire] now, but they want it to be just right.
In my experiences with women, they are just so back and forth with so many things its amazing.

How can you Want something now, but not have the patience for it to be just right?

Would you take a pizza out the oven before the cheese melted?
Would you take cookies out the oven before they rised? (probably would considering most eat cookie dough...**lol sorry had to add that**)

So how can you expect to find the man of your dreams if your not patient with him?

This is where the quote "You can only judge a man by his Patience, not his intentions." comes into play.

:My interpertation:
It takes Men along time to mature, and IMO (coming from a man so Listen up). "All men are immature", but the older or more "mature" we get, the less of this maturity we show to the world/public.
A 35 year old man will still pick up a Superman comic and still be somewhat amazed.
Alot of men (if not all) still play video games, still google at girls, still get excited over little things. Which most women would Cringe at....IF.... They knew we did this.
Thats how females rate male maturity, by those little things. Now its up to men to know when, to show this and when not to show this to Women.

Thats where the patience game begins.

Ladies you may possibly have the potential "man of your dreams" on your hands, but you can't/won't get over single flaws, or attributes about a guy, because he happens to show this bout of immaturity that he has.

Its the expression "boys will be boys", please remember that.

Men aren't born ::Warning sexist statement:: with the double standards, So were not born raised to look forward to weddings, or growing up and doing this and that.

Yes we are raised to Provide and protect our family, but we are also raised with the mindset because we do this we should be able to do what we want.

What I'm saying is Let guys slide if they show some of this immaturity, Just because he does do these things, doesn't mean he won't treat you like a queen.

Show some patience, and you will be ok!

STOP wanting the here and now...
Once again, you will be set for disappointment in your lives if you keep wanting stuff now without waiting.

It takes time for fruit to get ripe, flowers to bloom, grass to grow, full moons to happen.

Show patience, and I am directing this to alot of my friends, because we talk and I hear how you want things, but waiting can take days, months, years, but I am one who truly believes, that there is someone for everyone, and if you miss that 1st person there is another one that can come along for you.

Alot of bad relationships now, are because women wanted the now instead of waiting showing patience.
Thats how Kids happen (and you hate the father), Marriages happen (and you get a divorce), Happiness happens, (but then your heart crumbles)

Well that is my public service announcement!

Penny Pinchin

Some Call me Cheap,
Some call me the Black Jew (which I still haven't quite gotten yet)
I call myself a smart consumer. Its not that I don't have the money (it is tight at the moment), but why spend more than I need to?

If I spend $2 on 18 Pack of eggs, but I see an 18 pack for 1.50 at another store, you darn right I'm going to return the $2 dollar pack. Things like that (which I buy almost every 3 days) I end up saving money... Even if its just 50 cents because after 3 or so buys of savings I can buy a another pack so 4 packs for 6 bucks, compared to the 4 packs for 2 bucks that would cost me 8 bucks.
thats 4 bucks a month saving and 60 bucks a year.
YES I'm that smart of a Consumer that I planned that far ahead.

Another aspect to the cheapness (smart consuming) is if I buy an item and lets say it goes down in price 3 weeks later....
Darn right I'ma get the price adjustment.
Nothing makes me more mad then when I buy something for $300, but then it goes down to $225. Thats $75 bucks that could be use for Car insurance bill, or my best buy bill, or something anything...
I don't care that I brought and used it for almost a month, damnit I wanna pay what it is now.Companies knew damn well that price was going down thats why I usually ask for discounts anyway.

This Country was based on trading and barganing, and make the people happy.

Well damnit make me happy Sellers

2009 PET PEEVE LIST!!! Updated!

Welcome Ladies and Gentlement to Anthony's 2009 Pet Peeve list!!!!
We are sponsored here this year by well. ME!

This is a Collection of things that just really have peeved me off since I was able to be peeved off.
and I'm happy to bring it here to everyone This year...
this list is subject to change due to me being in crappy moods, annoyed, irratated, peeved off, and anti-social...!!
check for constant updates!!!

This is in no order...although some outweigh others.

Probably my #1 would be this.
People who have to clarify or check on something from another person, that you just informed them or told them off..
Ex: if I say...Hey Susie, I95 (highway) is backed up i just came from there.
Susie then goes to someone else and ask them...Hey is I95 (highway) backed up...
Why the hell would you go re-ask someone that when I just told you, and when I just came from there.
What is your reasoning for that?

#2 would have to be..
People who blame me without knowing full facts, but im just the first person they point the finger to..
If you want me to literally snap on you, then please put the blame on me. for anything.
atleast have hard evidence, photos, fingerprints, hell footprints proving im guilty of whatever crime you blame me for.

#3 for sure
They are nothing more than lazy emo teenager kids...You pay for them to eat, sleep, and shit in a box. They roam the streets whenever they please, and there very territorial.
my teacher taught us a long time ago, Cats are stil Primal, the only time they come to you is to get food.
they don't care about your problems, they dont feel your mood, there are no Cool Cats...
There all like the revolutionary war soliders who use to use people's houses to sleep and take advantage of them.

- People who wait for you to leave your parking space so they can take it.
nothing irratates me more than getting in my car...and seeing through my mirrors someone is just waiting there.
(im not the type of person to just get in my car and drive off.) My music needs to be just right. Seatbelt check, Mirrors check, any other extra curricular activity that you can do in your car.
Will it really kill people to walk that extra 15 secs from a further parking spot?

-People who are sitting at a light and about to turn right...but hesitate.........then they go...Which ends up making you brake, because they can came out right in front of you.
Now im not a defensive driver, but if you want me to rear end you on purpose...That is the way you do it.

- To Coincide with the last pet peeve, the people who get in front of you, then drive slow..
Why the hell did you come out on me like your in a rush, then drive like your peddling with your feet?

- People who are yelling in their Cell phone for everyone else to hear... I don't care about your conversation, I am also not impressed with your bluetooth headset....if you have to talk that loud or you can barely hear, than it may be time for a new phone and headset don't you think?

- When your on the phone with someone and talking, but you hear them start texting while your in mid sentence (Robyn you do this) geezus can it wait? Can you atleast be like hey hold on i gotta reply.

- People who Honk their Horn................Really that will get you no where with me, matter of fact I may just sit at the light, so you can remain sitting then when it turns red i'll speed off and make the light and you don't!

- When I sneeze or anyone else say bless you or gazuntai

-Burping out loud...(belching).........Really were you not taught better?

- Crying kids in small stores....Come on people I got spanked....do it at home and teach them right then they wont act out in stores with the (I want I want I want)

-White boys and girls with Cornrolls...It doesn't work. Just stop

-Black boys and girls with Mohawks...I understand were in a rock revolution but seriously. its not cool.

- People who Stare....I like to look at everything possible all the time...When your staring its rude, and creepy...but "If you see something you like......Speak up"

- When people ask the same questions in less than a 30 min period... Were you not listening..or are you just hard headed?

- Women with to much make up...Hey i must just went to the Circus because you all look like clowns.

- People who are crossing the street, and act like they don't even care that your waiting for them.

- People who are crossing the street, and put on the fake run/jog....lol u were walking at the same pace. just walk and acknowledge me for letting you cross

- Anyone who thinks their above society...ESPECIALLY if your 1. not on tv! 2. even remotely rich.
I mean come on asshole ur walking in Walmart just like the rest of the us.

- Kids these days who say "My bad" ....My bad is not an apology, it doesn't take that much effort to say "I'm sorry"

- Kids these days in general...lol i think thats more of a jealousy thing...They live so much more carefree these days

- People who are afraid to eat new foods, because of the name, of it or which animal it is...i bet if younever told someone kalamari was squid they would love it.

-Women Drivers on their cell phones...I hate to be Sexist about this (ok no i dont because I firmly believe in this) but i swear you gals don't pay attention to NOTHING ELSE but the cell phone...like Got damn, I hope someone is in the hospital and thats why you drive so recklessly...

I'm going to end this for now....
but like i said please check this about every week, because im sure it will build
These are the only ones I can think of as of 7/28/09~~~

9-1-09 Update

-People who you tell them something 1 day, and they straight deny it being a good idea or don't acknowledge you for YOUR ideas, but then turn around the next day act like you never said it, then take credit for that idea

-When you are around somewhere, and your noticablly tired or irratated, but yet people come around and still try to push your buttons or just nag you.

-People who are just to simple minded for their own good. someone tells you something, don't just stand there and be like "which way did he go george which way did he go"

-When your in a store or hallway and someone is walking in front of you, and know they are in front of you but walking like they got shot in the leg and won't get out of your way or let you bye.

Sorry had to vent i will keep posting so keep checking it out!!!

National be a gentlement month (Ended)


National gentlement month has ended. It went well, I'm going to continue to be one. (I always have been)
just this month I went waaaAAY OUT OF my way to be one to people who were usually rude and what not.

This experience taught me that the saying "Kill them with kindness" works well. I mean people can only be but so snotty with you if your just completely nice and respectful to them.
Well this month will be
National turn Curse words into funny sayings month like "What the french toast" "Shut the front door!"

End Edit: 9-1-09

So I decided that for the entire month of August I will be a complete and utter gentlemen to any and everyone!
Kill them with kindness

There is no particular reason I am doing this, I just feel like it.

Don't get me wrong I usually am a Gentlemen but on my diet, i have a quick attitude. so I wanna be able to control my emotions.

Also alot of people where I live don't deserve to get doors opened, and/or me being completely polite to them.

Others do...
We'll see how this goes!!!! I will be updating every week

Edit: 8/14/09
So its been going well, I haven't had to yell at anyone or be rude!
Ive been holding doors open, being polite, its been working well.

I have had indcient bad angry thoughts still, but hey thas part of this diet im on.
