Azealia Banks, “BBD”
So it’s Christmas, and to the majority of the United States, that’s a celebration to be had with friends and family. Well, my month of December has not been too kind. First, my camera equipment was stolen, and I thought that was the most of my worries.
Then, my father died. My badass biker, member of the “iron butt association” father.
This came as a shock to us all, it was very sudden. He had progressive heart failure, and suffered a massive heart attack as he was working out in an attempt to keep his heart at what the doctors said were healthy vitals. A morbid twist of fate if I’ve ever seen one myself.
We had our moments were we’d both bust out in our overly loud laughs over something terribly inappropriate. In fact, we’d probably find this situation we’re in now, if projected on a movie screen, to be quite silly. At the movie theatre one time, a horse jumped over the cliff and into the murky seas below. Everyone gasped. We laughed. Even my stepmom was a bit taken aback at this situation.
I can recall times like this with fondness, but in the truth of it all, he and I usually fought like cats and dogs. Turns out the most genetic trait of his I inherited was this stubborn mentality that leads me to believe I’m always right and know what’s best.
In the end, I did start taking his advice, I saw some sensibility to some of things he said to do, like “get a business degree.” I’ve told others, but never him that that was arena he was correct in…mostly because I didn’t want to; I didn’t want him to think he was right.
Anyway, he always wanted his kids to be strong, and hell, we’re some of the toughest people out there. As I always say, one day, I’ll teach my kids, his grandchildren, “Rule Number One in Life is…stop being such a pussy.
Love you dad, thanks for everything you have ever shown me and taught me in life, I’ll walk with you in my heart always.
add quotes and text to your pictures, and somehow they’re much more enjoyable to viewers.
And the first Nobel Prize of the year has been awarded! This year, the Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology has been awarded to Sir John B Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka for
“for the discovery that mature cells can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent”
So what does this mean?
