OMW 2 L.A.

The Time is Now! To Thy Self Be True

A screenshot of a text message from my cousin


Sooo, first thing’s first, I want to apologize to you all for not keeping in touch like I was suppose to. You see, what happened was… I got my nails done and they were kind of long and it was hard for me to type! Like seriously, it was so fucking annoying I didn’t know what to do. I tried typing but it didn’t work. My long, oval, acrylic nails kept sliding across the keys. So, here I am! August seventeenth has already passed, and I've packed my car and hit the interstate. It was hard at first, saying goodbye to my parents. Many tears were shed that day. But, the most remarkable act, is the fact that I left. I called or either hung with those that I cared most for and I was ready to leave. Everyone showed me love and showered me with good wishes. I can say that this time, I left the right way.

It is now 10:59 P.M. central time and somewhere around midnight back home. Within a day’s pass, I managed to make it all the way to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Yes, darling, I was pushing it. I barely stopped for twenty minutes at a time and I kept my foot about eighty miles per hour on the interstate. It is so great driving this way; barely any police, fast traffic, and the speed limit was seventy-five. But, you wanna know something weird? I am completely numb to this whole road trip. I thought the feelings of joy and happiness were going to fill me up and burst through my chest, but, it was the total opposite. I felt nothing. This made me angry because I wanted to have those feelings more than anything. But instead, I felt nothing. I was just…driving.

So far, the ride to L.A. has been a smooth one. It’s not the first time I have seen the countryside, but it is the first time I’ve seen mountains. Cruising from Amarillo, Texas to New Mexico is a huge difference just from gazing upon the tall and deep hills, to actual monumental and ferocious mountainsides. It was so beautiful. Although I took as many pictures as I could, photographs could not give their beauty justice. You would have to be there to experience how the evening sky compliments the landscape against the long, single strip of highway. The breeze carried on swiftly as the clouds floated majestically over the sun to relieve drivers with some shade. The darkness didn’t last long, but, I cherished every moment of it. I even talked to GOD while I was at it.

I promise to tell you more about my drive once I get to my cousin’s place in Phoenix, Arizona, which is about six hours away. I gotta get a move on if I want to make it there by sundown. Talk to you later and thank you for being patient with me. Unit next time...

Stay Humble. Stay Focus. Vibrate Higher.
