I randomly get blog ideas throughout the day while I do random shit. So this is the start to a new category called,
“Blog post from my phone so people will think I’m texting and won’t bother me.”
Yeah sick title, I know.
I know this graduation thing is getting old. Y’all are probably thinking,
“This man is really bragging about graduating at the bottom of his class.”
“Money, they let you walk with a 2. what???”
“They felt bad for you huh, I heard they used to call you Ipod.”
Anyways, when I first graduated, I remembered my Grandmom called me a week later saying how proud she is. How she now has 3 grandbabies that are college graduates. How my big brother was supposed to graduate but he couldn’t crack it. With his bummy ass.
I got that from all my family members that bothered to call me to congratulate me. Shout out to all 5 of y’all. But I didn’t understand why they were so proud because, “I ain’t even done shit yet.”
I didn’t understand because I’m a scoundrel man. That’s the god honest truth. I’m in my own way most times. My decision making was terrible. Made a ton of bad choices. Choices that most people would regret, I don’t.
The thing is though, I’m not giving myself the credit I deserve. Because in my mind that would mean I’m becoming complacent. There is so much more out there for me to overcome and do. That I don’t even acknowledge me getting my degree as an accomplishment anymore. Don’t get me wrong I was juiced for a little bit, then I went to an interview and this happened…..
(Replace 5th amendment with College degree)
Employers could care less about your degree. It’s all about the experience, I can’t stress that enough.
I know so may people that are doing so much better than me. A few names comes to mind; Whames (Jj Kilgore), recruiting coach up in Arizona. Paris, Just got accepted to Graduate school at Cu Denver, Jessica Marshall, Just moved to Kansas city with his girlfriend. Then there’s me, part time mover, full time night audit at the super 8 in Sioux falls. The fact that I’m a single cat dad is kind of sad to say out loud.
But if I’m being completely honest, I haven’t been this happy in a long time. To me, this is a step in the write direction. I’m not standing still waiting for things to come to me. I’m going out and making them happen. That’s something to be proud of.
Stay woke Y’all
