Taking what family we can
Me: Man, I didn’t think you were so knowledgeable about people.
Her: Yeah, I second-guess myself with work, but when it comes to people, I know things.
Met up with my cousin Ras the other night because she wanted to take me out to eat for helping her with a certification she’s pursing.
I chose to see her over other options because I was feeling rough after everything and my sister and mom are busy and my brother’s in California.
Suppose I just wanted a low-key night out with family.
I figured that I’d get back to my diet after the boy returns so we went out for udon noodles and sushi.
Her: I love this place, The bowls are bigger than your head.
Me: That’s what I like to hear.
Afterward, we walked by my old digs on Times Square.
Me: I lived here for four or five years.
Her: I never knew that.
Me: I think that’s when we lost touch.
I told my brother that it was nice seeing her; it was like the best of seeing family and friends. After trauma, I think people just want quiet and familiarity.
Me: We should do this again soon.
Her: Yes! I’ll see you again this week.
Unfortunately, both times, she cancelled last minute so that was disappointing. Still, it was nice to see her when I did.
Like I said, after a trauma, you want family somehow.
Speaking of family, it woulda been my uncle’s birthday recently so I my sis went to his store and saw the below video.
Wish my family met him.
It’s one of my ten-thousand regrets.
On a wholly different matter, Chad signed the lease on his martial arts academy: Paxibellum.
We based it on one of my favourite Latin sayings: Si vis pacem, para bellum.
There’s a lot that needs to be done and I’m trying to help him however I can.
Unfortunately, I’m still being pulled in a million different ways and the boy’s back after being away for a bit with my family.
There’s more but that too, like everything else in my life, is in flux.
