Young Jeezy



Young Jeezy's album "The Recession" drops September 2nd. I had requested tickets to see him perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live a few weeks ago(same place I saw NAS & The Game) the performance was supposed to be September 3rd! at 6:17pm I receive an E-mail saying that its been pushed to tommorow, at 6;21pm I receive an E-Mail saying its Tonight and I still have an hour to get there. I am frightened that I wont make it in time! so I call up friends until I find someone to roll. I'm doing 100 on the freeway, then traffic stops completely in Hollywood, I'm sitting in traffic, completely stopped for about 30 minutes. Luckily we park, and make it to the entrance at exactly 8pm. Fortunately not many people received the lat minute email, and I got third row! so they brought crowd fillers from inside the studio audience to take up space. I am looking forward to his new album be sure to give it a listen!

Realization

I have worked at a supermarket for a while now. It will be a year on Sept. 6th. Dealing with so many types of customers, none of them ever truly stuck out until today. A man average build with a beard and long hair, short running shorts, and a white t-shirt. The t-shirt had LB stamped on the upper right hand corner, initials of the elementary school I went to from 4th to 5th grade. I looked at him thinking is that my old gym teacher? As he passed me he says, "I know I look weird but you don't have to stare." I was shocked! I felt so bad. My tongue was literally in my stomach. I couldn't believe he thought I was judging him. I couldn't speak; I had nothing to say as he was already passed me. I went back to scanning the rest of the items on the belt, processing what had just happened.

As I sit here one of my favorite feelings is being comfortable. Comfortable saying or doing anything silly/dumb in front of people you know won't judge you. I just hope he's not thinking back and saying, "Do I really look weird? Should I cut this hair or shave this beard?" No you shouldn't sir. Do you.
