Did all of you go over your first quarter of the year? How did it go? Learn anything new? Act reckless? Accomplish new shit?
Here are some accomplishments and random thoughts on my end.
WE STARTED A PODCAST
Me and my bros Moe and Cue started a podcast. We have no clue what we’re doing. We just started the shit and people like it. Like I’ve said before I never listened to podcasts but now I try to make it habit to at least listen to 20 minutes of one per week and I’m failing at that also. I don’t have the attention span to listen to one all the way through in one sitting. Actually, at all. Polite Coolery returns next week.
I was getting straight to the point about how I feel the first quarter and shit been great. I say what I feel about everything and just act accordingly from there. I don’t expect people to do the same because everyone is afraid. I have no time to walk on egg shells. It is what it is or it isn’t what it isn’t and I go from there.
CHASING PEOPLE SUCKS DICK
I’ve known this all my life which is why I’m always alone but chasing people whether it’s in the creative field, business world, dating world, everywhere is trash. Every time I reach out for something I always wanna slap the shit outta myself and say “Nigga just do it yourself.” I’m always disappointed. Always. I’m a man and growing up we’re taught to hunt. We have to speak up or chase shit. I’m not chasing shit no more but this creative shit I’m doing because the results I can rig in my favor. I don’t have to depend on anyone and listen to people’s bullshit. No one is honest. Everyone is afraid as I stated. Everyone has an excuse. It’s 2018 and people still don’t know how to tell people how they’re feeling. It’s fucking baffling. I literally watched a co-worker nearly have a brain aneurysm about not wanting to go to an event he was invited to. Just tell the person you don’t fucking feel like going instead of going ghost and avoiding social media to make it seem like you’re sleep or sick and making shit harder for yourself. Fuck! It’s not difficult. It’s only difficult for fake people.
I STARTED A VIDEOGRAPHY AND PHOTOGRAPHY PLATFORM
I started a new visual platform called “The Polite Visual Club” which I’m probably gonna have to do myself which is cool. My homie moving and he won’t be able to help so I understand that. I think it’s a sign that I should do everything myself. Was about to go look for videographers but I think I should just take on the responsibility myself. I’m looking for a photographer though. If you’re a photographer who wants to be apart of The Polite Family. Contact me. But yeah this shit will be fun. Oh yeah I’m looking for writers too. Preferably women.
PEOPLE BE BORED
I was talking to Moe about being more focused the other night in the studio and one step I took in the right direction is when I went home I really thought about everyone that contacts me in every form and vice versa and I erased all my text message threads except my business ones. I’m starting to notice that people are bored and like to waste my time or use me for certain things like venting to me or asking me for favors and money and it’s just not healthy to what I have going on. Don’t get me wrong I genuinely care about people. It’s flattering that people come to me for help but that shit can get exhausting when it happens weekly.
Nobody cares about you outside your circle and even that’s a stretch. Once I realized I give all my energy, time, advice to everyone else but myself that’s when I had my “EUREKA” moment. I have a bad habit of expecting people to give me the same treatment I give them. It’s a dumb habit that does nothing but waste my time and energy. I now understand People really be bored as fuck. They can go do that shit on their time and not mine.
MY BLOG IS STILL MY LOVE
I don’t even know the numbers. I don’t even keep score no more. I don’t wanna look back. I just wanna keep writing and writing. The support I get is very humbling. I still love it and I think I can do more the next quarter.
I STARTED WRITING MY FIRST BOOK
It’s hard as fuck. I have all these thoughts and trying to narrow them down is difficult. I’ll get there though. Can’t wait to help people with this.
I GOT WRITERS BLOCK ON MY TV SCRIPT
I don’t think it’s writers block I think I just have too much going on to really focus on it. It’s the first complete script I ever wrote. I really need to be apart of a writing team. Mainly because my grammar trash. So I need creative nerdy ass people around me to correct that shit. I have ideas all day but my technical skill is lacking and I really don’t give a fuck. I’m like Mugen from Samurai Champloo.
TWITTER IS AN ANNOYING GIRL WITH GOOD PUSSY
We’ve all had that girl that we really don’t wanna be around cause she’s annoying as fuck but her pussy is as perfect as strawberry shortcake so you keep coming back. That’s Twitter. Twitter is a place of overthinking, overreaction, and opinions on overkill. You see all those O’s I just dropped like a classic OJ The Juiceman verse? Twitter this past quarter has reached a level of annoyance I don’t think I can explain. It’s a place that makes you fall out of like with shit before you even give yourself a chance to like it for yourself. I have no goals anymore. I have a system and that system is going to get me to a position where I won’t need to check twitter ever again. I’ll pay someone to do it and just drop my work on there and retweet real niggas shit. I really hated twitter this past quarter.
TEAMS ARE EVERYTHING
Without Cue, Moe, Twister, shit wouldn’t be cracking. Surround yourself with good people who believe in the overall mission and who actually want to make a difference.
SHIT JUST BE HAPPENING
Shit like Business, Creativity, Relationships just be happening. Not healthy to rush any of those. Don’t plan to. Just letting them happen.
If I could rate my quarter I’d give it a solid 3 outta 5. How did your quarter go? What did you learn? Talk to me.
