10 THINGS I'M BEING FAKE AS HELL ABOUT RIGHT NOW
Confused? I know. I am often cited by my peers as being "the realist." Well today I inform you that being a real nigga isn't necessarily about total honesty as you may expect. It's about keeping it 💯 about your OBSERVATIONS📤. However, honest INTROSPECTION📥 requires a higher level of realness that I have not yet mastered and that very few do.
- 1.Shaming the Chiraq movie.I study film in school. I'm from Chicago. Let's face it: I'm gonna see the movie. I'll probably tear it to shreds afterwards, but I admittedly have a soft spot for Spike Lee Joints... wait no I don't. I'm just obsessed with fellow bori Rosie Perez. 🇵🇷
- 2.Not liking social media.I luh this shit. Mainly because I'm an introvert and social media lets me "see people" without constantly depleting all of my precious social energy.
- 3.Being an introvert.Wait, whut? Yes, I have my introverted qualities, but I can be really open in conversation too. Maybe in a way that would hurt "real" introverts. I love facilitating as well.
- 4.Liking "conscious rap".To be quite honest, I can relate a lot more to a Chief Keef narrative than a J Cole or a Common. I still actively seek to liberate my mind from the oppressive powers that be through other mediums, just not through music.
- 5.Liking J Cole in particular.He's boring. Nothing he's done past Friday Night Lights has stimulated me.
- 6.Not caring about a potential partner's height.I do, dude. I'm sorry😬 I have some internalized expectations about how couples should look. It's petty, I know. I'm working through it.
- 7.Being too busy to reply.No one is that busy. I just like to let shit sit. There are so many other things I'm required to be urgent about right now, like studying or finding a post grad job, or paying bills. I resist by letting the things that can sit, sit.
- 8.Giving advice.The advice i give is real, but I don't practice what I preach. I need to.
- 9.Being ok.I'm not ok right now, but I'm taking steps to get there.
- 10.Being hungry.I'm not hungry, I'm just procrastinating 😋
