The Year 200Great

Hey everyone, I know it's been a while since I blogged, I apologize but here I am with a blog worth wait. After 2006 I felt there couldn't have been a worse year boy was I wrong 2007 was terrible. It seemed as if everything that could go wrong did, My homie died, Sold My car, Put school on hold etc etc. So I went into 2008 with a nonchalant attitude like it has to get better and it certainly did. I think the ambitious side of everyone came out this year, It seemed like as if everyone I knew was about chasing what they wanted and not waiting for it too fall into their lap. This year I was able to develop new relationships and friendship with people I never thought I would be closer to. I became closer with family, went through life experiences I needed to go through to make me a better a man, also developed a new hobby I personally hated in my school years, writing. Of course we the saw the rise of one Obama and the fall of others Bush, witnessed the worst economic conditions in quite some time and was possibly put through the most annoying phase(Auto-tune) of black music since the "shiny suits", through all of that this was one of the better years of my life. 2009 is looking like an even better one thanks to the New edition on the WAY..... Of course any good blogs needs to pics to accommodate.

So Early 2008 I decided to start off with a beard similar to Lebron


That quickly phased out when I then wanted to see how far I could go....


In between all the facial hair I was able to meet my favorite rapper....


Only to continue with more facial hair.....



Only to revert back to something shorter in the summer......


Spent a lot of time with that white cup this summer lol




my circle grew tighter....


Partied a lil more


a few hangovers....




Partied a lil more.....



Turned 22 Celebrated very well....







Slowed down to put things back together......


Got my mac book and thats when Life changed lol....




Built a stronger bond with this man.....










Only to party a lil more and have a tad bit more fun.....







Met the person behind who inspired the beard lol and Partied more.....





Watched my boy start off on the good foot with fatherhood




And last but not least made it right with my Baby mother to be......






All in all a great year....Can't wait to see what 2009 has in store for me

I am so glad to hear 2008 was good to you!

Kofi Bofah said...

Your favorite rapper is Joe Budden?

You said that you wanted to grow a beard like LeBron - but then you post up Freeway as your inspiration for the beard.

I thought you were in New York.

In Philadelphia - everybody has that huge beard. (I have been told it is for Islam - but I am not certain.) The look got really popular when Beans ad Free were in the mix.

There was that one summer where this was the Philadelphia Uniform:

HUGE Beard. White tee-shirt. Long shorts that look like capris.
(I was also told that the long short look was because followers of Islam are not supposed to let the pants touch the ground.)

Looks like you had a good 2008.

*Don't take me too seriously / I know I am random / My comments are like GFK on the microphone (Ghostface) / Nice pics...

Kofi Bofah said...

And how you in that one pic all buckled up / chessin' like the perfect citizen - and then you got the pic with the styrofoam cup talking about 'hungover?'

What's in that cup, buddy?

Tuotierugif >^..^<© said...

I need to hang out with you so I can go to some of those parties! lol

JOFre$h said...

toutie whenever u in the city we shall party...

kofi- yeah Joe budden is severely underrated he is one of the greatest lyricist. Lebron inspired me but then I wanted to see how far I could go with it, LOL Everybody always ask me if I'm from philly or am I muslim....In that cup is the "wavy juice"

Eb the Celeb said...

so the theme is 2008 brought a lot of partis.. and aint nothing wrong with that

Kofi Bofah said...

Fre$h:

I wasn't even sure who that was.

I thought he was Joe Budden - but then I was like:
"I have never heard anybody say that Budden was their favorite rapper."

Budden may be underrated because he is nice on the mix tape circuit - but unless you are heavy into the rap game - you will never hear any underground mix tape.

Budden's LP work is so-so.

You should just get it over with and move to Philadelphia.

This is my joint right here:

Free

I used to rock out to this.

A Genius said...
