Gettin older

Do you remember when you were a teenager and you to say man my parents are really dumb or they don't what they are talking about. Isn't it funny how they get smarter as you get older. Of course there are other ways to realize that you are getting older in life and you really know when your grateful for it. Your getting older and wiser
Yesterday was one of those days for me and at the end of the day I was so happy to just come home to my wife and crawl into bed with her.

It started off just a normal day heading to work. Work was the same old same old put this here take that there. Then in the early afternoon I had to attend a class on "exit counseling" that basically said "DON'T DEFAULT ON YOUR STUDENT LOANS" and showed a few things. Then as I was heading from that I realized my mind is starting to go bad so I had to return to school to buy my cap and gown and when I was searching through the stack of fake silk I was thinking about how many times I have looked at the stack there coming into buy books or whatever I needed and I started to get a tear in my eye (you must realize I'm sucker for moments like these I tear up at every Kay Jewelers commercial during Christmas season ....)Then I suck the tears of happiness back and headed to cashier with a little hop in my step. I couldn't believe it I'm actually graduating from college the very first one in my blood line of family to get through school. Hell ya!! Mo Fo's this was the moment it became very real to me that I was moving forward and I felt very proud and when I handed the money to the cashier that I have seen every semester for about the past 11 years, darn it there I go again but this time I couldn't hold them back I just couldn't do it any more and the two ladies behind the counter just laughed and said your not the first and you won't be the last that has done that. I place the cap and gown in my bag and jump into my car hit the gas and blared Sunny Hours by Long beach and headed home in the sunset lol
Have a great day everyone and remember hard pays off in the long run.
