The Story of the prodigal Son pt. 2

So we met on my birthday randomly in a caf somewhere on my way from biochem to sociology or something like that! (I used to be a geek I lie to you not). I walked up to him like
"Hey are you T from facebook?"
"Yea are you Shaderi?"

2 hours later we get up and leave and have been friends ever since.

Now I know EVERYBODY thought we were dating because where you saw T you saw me. But he was my road dog. We talked about how much we loved Praise and Worship, how much we loved BBQ sauce. He even hipped me Open Pit BBQ sauce!! HE COOKED!!!!!!!! Like he would call me and say:
Yo I'm cooking I'm coming to pick you up.

Come to think about it he is just like me. I LOVE IT!!!!

And then graduation happened and I moved back home... and moved to MD.

I spoke to T once when I moved to MD. Coming home from Dive at Zion Church (so you already know that was a while ago). Then I was pressed over this dude so I did a one week no guys fast and lo T called in the middle of my fast. I was so tight because I knew he would change his number again before I had a chance to call him back. And that is what happened.

I haven't spoken to T in a little over 2 years. But I think about him every time a Fred Hammond cd comes out, Mary Mary comes on the radio, Tye Tribbett does Tye Tribbett things, pastors give awful offering sermons... That is my boy. And he will be in DC this weekend!!!!

Icing on my red velvet cake!!

The Story of the prodigal Son pt.1

I will be honest and say that I have recently learned a lot from God and should definitely share it with the world.


So back when I had a perm, gas was 1.78 a gallon, and facebook was only for college students, I met this guy on facebook.

What had happened was:

He was looking at profiles of Christians on fb (remember when you could click things people were interested in and see other people who listed the same interest?!?) So he sent me a message that said "Hey I was looking at Christians at our school and was getting depressed but then I came across your profile and you are actually not ashamed to be a Christian"
Since I didn't have a computer during these times I opened this message in my friend's dorm room so everyone in the room was like "yo deri that dude is cute and that is a pretty bold message. What are you gonna do about it? I think you should write back."

So I did. I said "Interesting pic. And yes I'm a real Christian" we talked for a while. Picture of Shaderi and Picture of dude who used his driver's license as his profile pic. (That has to be like giving the finger to fb) Then we met in real life. On my birthday

stay tuned for part 2

My party clothes are so binding!!!

That is probably one of the most profound statements from the movie that defines my generation and gives meaning to my life... CLUELESS!!!

I mean I can quote the entire movie from beginning to end. However, I must admit that I have never given much thought to this scene at all. But tonight for some reason this scene means a lot to me.

Cher is sitting on her couch brushing her hair in a purple cardigan and some jeans, while watching Ren & Stimpy talking about how much she enjoys staying in the house and going out. Her reason for staying in is simple; She can wear whatever she wants and have her hair look however she wants it to.

Tonight I feel the exact same way!!! With no actual PRESSING OBLIGATIONS, left work, went to the movies (with quite possibly the greatest individual on the face of this earth)***, came home and ate, and plan on playing video games until my heart is content!!!

Don't get me wrong I love going out- I still have time to get ready and go to 3 functions that I turned down if I really wanted to go.

But tonight I will rock some sweat pants and let my hair down.

I deserve this! And you do too!!!

***Please don't try and speculate who it is because I know a lot of great people***
