Past Weekend: Graduation and Birthday

Hey folks,

I am officially done with school!!! This past Saturday, I graduated and now have my MASTERS!!! Who would have thunk it!! I remember posting anxiety of getting in and now I am done.

The day started off kinda cold, very wet and dreary. Did I tell you that the graduation is outside. Um yeah, who wants to hear their mother talk about leaving because she ain't come to get no damn pneumonia. um, mother dearest you can go inside and watch on the big screen t.v.s they have. Also, if anyone wanted to complain it should have been the graudates since we had to sit in the wet dang on chairs when the rain stopped. With all that said it was really nice once sun peeked through. The grounds at CUA are gorgeous, especially with the Basilica as the backdrop of the graduation. However, it was hectic for a moment because CUA has two graduations. So I had to attend the first one with EVERYONE and then the second one with my department. Which was pretty cool because it was more intimate and with your class and the champagne jazz brunch after was a nice touch.

I should have been with the nurses. They were so excited.

The commencement speaker was spea.ker of the h.ouse John "CRY BABY" B. he so works my nerves. He cried from beginning to end. I knew he would that's all his ass do. His speech was some garbage. His background is one of those pull yourself up by your bootstraps so I tried to have an open mind and listen, thinking - hey, he should have a great "go get em, the world is yours speech." UM, NOT.

I so am going to miss the CAT.HOLIC UNIVER.SITY OF AME.RICA

I partied like I was a Rock Star. I had a cook-out in honor of the festive occasion and I did something I never do which is enjoy the moment and accept the day as my day. I love to help everyone else, but feel uncomfortable when the attention is on me. Felt good to just STFU.

AND then on Sunday, I turned the big 37. Which is cool, because my crazy ass was telling people I was 37 last year until Anger Mgmt told me, your not 37 your 36, so I have been practicing for this number for a minute. So, now I have to take time and write new goals for myself because right now I am just floating through life trying to figure out what's next. Which can be a good thing, but for me not so much. The last time I didnt have goals I felt like I was wasting time.

P.S. now ya'll know this event was FILLED with drama. I will write about that later.

I hope every one is doing okay, I have been reading blogs, even if I have not responded.

So let's do a quick update...

I am still employed at the company, almost been there a year and let me tell you them folks are more than two kinds of crazy. I am just like totally amazed. Some of the shizznit people do, I am just like damn. I will definitely have to change names and put it on here because you all CANNOT believe the stories I will share you would swear I made it up.

Family is still the most important thing to me and we are still loving each other as we are suppose to.

Until the next time......

Hello life is that you?

Dang its been a minute!!

I missed writing and sharing but heck life was calling and I had no caller id so I picked up. I am finished another semester of school and I have one more to go. Go me!!

I figured the only way to get back into writing is to jump right in.

Until the next post……

College Boy is 21!!!

I am so excited!!! My beautiful baby boy is a grown arse man, but I still see him as my little baby. He turned 21 today and he is having a sleepover for his bday. Him and his friends are playing video games. I swear he is stuck at 16, which is okay as long as he is close by his momma - oh and not in the house at 35 writing his name on the OJ.

I am so glad they hired you!! What? GTFOH!

This is what the receptionist told me Friday. She gets a big CHILD PUHLEASE!!

I so wish I blog when I am suppose to because there are so many stories to tell with layers and I hate when I don’t blog and something else happens.

Anywho let me tell you the story from the beginning.

Part 1: My arrival

I get to work and no one is there to open the door. For some reason on Monday’s the place is locked up like a fort after the weekend after that we can use our passcodes and get in. Well homegirl is the only one with a key. So we have to wait for her because she is the ONLY one with a key except other directors who of course don’t come to work that early.

Then when she does arrive we are all met (the five people who had to wait for her who were on time).

At the end of my first day I told my good girlfriends and husband that homie was gonna be a problem. I can just tell. I got that vibe from her straight off the top but whatever.

Part II: Hazing/Disrespect

I was given my telephone and office extension on day two, but yet did not have a voicemail set up and they had me hit the ground running on my first day so when people called me back they had to talk to her - the um, what is her title again, the um, RECEPTIONIST and leave messages with her. So, let me set the stage, I am on the phone conducting business with a potential employee and she enters my office and says - Do you know your extension? If not it is x25! All I could do at that point was give her evil stare down because 1. I am on the phone, 2. I am conducting business and I really don’t have time so I let it slide.


As, I told you before we have a passcode to get into our office, however, our doors are glass so if someone comes up that is not apart of the business she has the POWER to buzz you in and she uses her powers for her own good. Okay, so it’s my third day. I go to the bathroom and I come back and this hussy sees me struggling to put in the code so I knock on the glass and she rolls her eyes and lets me in. Mind you she is on the phone do you know she SIGHS loudly (must be a personal call) and says to me and she SUCKS HER TEETH - I mean do you know the passcode?

Urban: (sick and tired at this point) NO I do not. Do I have the code? Yes I do. Do I know it by heart? No I don’t. Will I know it by heart? One day AND TODAY IS NOT THE DAY!!

Ya’ll it took all of me not to curse her ass out this was my damn third day! Biatch puhlease. I am like are you serious. I had to go in my office and walk around in circles to stop from coming out there. It was the first day I had to closed my door for a minute because I know I can go there if you take me and I wasn’t trying to go there.

Part III: BFFs- we are bestest

I went to her the next day and said can we talk when you have a moment.

Idiot: Why? Um, okay.
Urban: Okay, so what are your policies for the front?
Idiot: Huh
Urban: You know - rules and regulations.
Idiot: (trying to play dumb or was she…..) What do you mean rules and regulations? I’m not understanding.
Urban: Well, when I use to be at the front I use to have policies and procedures or a way I wanted to conduct things.
Idiot: Ohhh that….

I couldn’t stop her from talking then. I knew it was a power issue with her but it was so stupid and do you know she told another coworker. I didn’t know about the new girl at first because we had a disagreement but she is cool now.

Um, what planet is she on? WE didn’t have a issue. YOU had an issue. But whatever.

Part III: I betta watch my back - I mean, I’m glad you were hired.

She now talks to me everyday (go me) and now when she coming towards the door, before I can put my passcode in she buzz me in. Go figure. While I was getting my mail she says…….

BFF: Can I tell you I am so happy you are here.
Urban: Oh really.
BFF: Yes. I gotta tell you though. I told someone that I wasn’t sure about the new girl.
Urban: (funny how she left out the part about the disagreement but whatever) Why?
BFF: You were so quiet. You just come in and work and I like that.
Urban: Oh okay thank you. I am glad I was hired for the position.

WHAT THE HELL WAS I SUPPOSE TO DO? People kill me with that. I didn’t say much because I was sitting back observing. Sorry, I don’t give my life story to everyone only my blog buddies and friends.

Ain’t that some crapola. Have ya’ll ever dealt with stuff like that. Crazy

G.O.D is good!

All the time!!

Yes! yes ya'll. How ya'll doing? Man oh man if you know the year I had!! If someone would have told me I would be living the life I am living now I would say maybe not because I have been through so, so , SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much this past year which we will get into much later. Sorry I haven't written but I am trying to be a good employee by not blogging at work. Kinda hard for me anyway being in a place that I am sure have a tracking damn device on my computer. Okay, I said I will talk about that later.

Anywho. I had a meeting this past Friday and I presented and did a great job. After the meeting I went back to the office and went to the bank to cash my check (I can't get direct deposit for 90 days WTF). Wait, let me back track. I went to my coworker office and was talking with him. Left his office went back to my office and saw my money on the floor. How the heck that happen? I pick up my money and put it in my pants pocket grab my ATM card (from another bank), my id and my money and put it. Go to the bank downstairs deposit my money and leave. As I am walking back to my job. This dude in a truck is blowing the horn at me and I am like "child bye" and keep it moving. I go to the store and get a soda. Go in my pocket. I have only my ID. No money and no ATM card. I go running out the store to go back to the bank to see if I left my money in the bank. As I walk (sprint) towards the bank the guy in the truck walks up to me and says, "here is your money, that is why I was blowing my horn." I thanked him and asked him did he see my atm card and he said no. So, I go back to the bank and I am wondering should I butt in line or just wait my turn. A worker came up to me and asked me if she could help and I told her I wanted to speak to the gentleman and ask him did I leave my card up there by him, it will not be from their bank. Right after I made that statement, a guy comes in the bank looks at me and says, "did anyone lose their atm card." I scream out ME!! I go and get it and he says, "it was laying on the ground. I heard you talking to the guy and I picked it up and bought it in here." I offered to buy him lunch or to give him money and he would not hear of it. Note to self, them pants pockets are not deep enough and bring your purse next time instead of trying to be fast!!!

I felt like I was on cloud nine Friday. Still do actually, because I made a couple poems a couple months ago when I asked God "why me" I might post it like I meant to do, but since I don't feel the same way (for now) who knows.

It's amazing, because my thoughts about humanity early in the day was really negative and at the end of the day I have a different perspective because of this.

All I could think about was G.O.D is good. Not one stranger but two strangers, of different races gave me back possessions when they could have taken it and done what they want with it.

Anywho, maybe this might change your mind about humanity a little bit, or shall I say, give a little hope to a better place/world.

BTW, I lost my phone early in the week and got that back too. Clumsy and forgetful the past week for whatever reason, but thank goodness for those Angels or whatever you want to call it.
