I can already see Friday being potential trouble from a mile away. No. Not a mile away, more like five rest stops and one outlet mall away. What’s going to end up happening is I’ll get up early like normally to go to the gym, but instead of knocking out my Nike Fuelband daily goal early, I run through the Left Behind DLC before work. Even though it’s only two hours long, it’ll surely leave me at least a third as emotional as The Last of Us' major campaign did, leaving me really vulnerable upon arriving at work to actually do this stupid, thoughtful, semi-genius, semi-corny VDay 75-foot heave I've been pondering doing all week. Why must the V-Day Season force be so strong this year while I've been so weak?
Oh yeah. I can see the destruction from here.

Not sure what to do right now: catch up on these Modern Family episodes sitting on Aja Mac because I refuse give that channel — ABC — ratings from me for canceling Happy Endings in protest (When NBA games aren’t on), continue to lay here with shuffle taking advantage of me, go watch this long ass Janice Griffith video, finish this letter for this girl I started last night (Not necessarily a love letter, by the way….), further do research on grasswheat extract (don’t ask), run through the articles in my reading list, or simply get ready to take myself to bed early by turning on Jhené’s Sail Out — like I’ve done basically every night for two weeks — so I can be at the gym earlier than 8am like most days.

You don’t know millennial Internet problems until you find this female who is entertaining, clever and funny (Not to mention hot) when limited to 140 characteristics or less and turns out to be a writer just like yourself which leads to you being interested in reading her work only to learn she owns a blog where she critiques dick pictures from her submissions inbox. Basically. I mean, I’m really interested in reading her stuff, however, I just doubt I have sites filled with random guys’ junk in place of the random female celeb Instagram profiles in my bookmarks and want to go through a blog with penises all up and through. And even if I do decide to say fuck it and read her boner blog, what time a day would I read it without it being weird? At night? During broad daylight? On holidays? I feel like at night would be worst. Or am I simply being dramatic given the amount of non-lesbian porn I’ve seen in my life?

I’m starting to think Nick Cannon is living my American dream. Not because he married Mariah Carey, but more so what that union represents: he’s happily married to an older woman who’s more famous than he is and have her own money (Which is more than his), with beautiful biracial twins, power and a big office somewhere within Viacom, and apparently having “lots of sex.” Not to mention his contributions to pop culture hasn’t been bad, especially compared to those in the public spotlight every single day, or anyone on that bullshit Vh1 air Monday nights.
From All That to current chairman of TeenNick, you must admit, he’s done quite well for himself even if he isn’t the voice of a generation like Kanye is, or the funniest comedian the last two or so decades like Dave Chappelle is considered (At least to me), or created
Fedsbook Facebook as Mark Zuckerberg that garnered a movie portrayal made about it. Guy has been in a few successful movies himself, created Wild’N Out (The 2005-2007 version), has America’s Got Talent going right now (and World’s Got Talent next), plus, he DID create this greatness even when most of his musical ventures, for the lack of a better word — sucked. And in the video to the greatest remix ever.
What he’s given to pop culture hasn’t been bad, actually, and if I had to choose a celebrity’s life I at least wouldn’t mind living, he’d be up there; all of his positives outweighs his negatives. But most importantly: he is happily married to an older woman with her own money who’ve bared his biracial twins, is considered successful and having lots of sex. That seems like an American dream in some form.

The epitome of defying logic is me loving 3005 as much as I do with that awful Mufasa line in it. The song pretty much represents most of the things that annoys me the most about radio, but I love it and it’s so powerful — I’ll be singing along with it, then accidentally end up repeating said Mufasa line by accident and’ll loathe myself for the remainder of the verse until the great (and awfully catchy) hook comes back around. This has probably happened about 76.2% of its staggering 97 plays in my iTunes. Even more so, I spent a significant amount of time this week making sure I end up having 3005 songs on my iPhone. What is life?
