compton

Probably cursing this by talking about it, but what the fuck, you know?

Her name is Jazmin. She is (in the Boston Vernacular) wicked cool. We met up for coffee this morning, but thanks to a bizarre combination of busses being too fast and T trains being too slow we actually ended up getting coffee at different ends of Newbury Street, then walking towards each other and meeting in the middle where we took a casual stroll back towards the Common, via the Public Garden.

She's not like me. But then she is.

She's passionate about her job, which is the total opposite of mine. I work to care for the spoiled poor, she works to care for the spoiled rich. She's filled with a zesty kind of energy. She smiles. She says (with no modesty) "I'm not the best looking person in the world," and yet she's quite pretty.

This is a cool thing. We work not too far apart, so we'll probably do lunch next week.

It's a good thing.

Shoooooow me your Pasa Doble (http://us.imdb.com/Title?0105488)

Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted-In One moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?
...
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

The soul's escaping, through this hole that it's gaping
This world is mine for the taking
Make me king, as we move toward a, new world order
A normal life is borin, but superstardom's close to post mortar
It only grows harder, only grows hotter
...
No more games, I'ma change what you call rage
Tear this mothafuckin roof off like 2 dogs caged
I was playin in the beginnin, the mood all changed
I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
But I kept rhymin and stepwritin the next cypher
Best believe somebody's payin the pied piper
All the pain inside amplified by the fact
That I can't get by with my 9 to 5
...
I cannot grow old in Salem's lot
So here I go is my shot.
Feet fail me not cuz maybe the only opportunity that I got
...
You can do anything you set your mind to, man

How do you stay still when everything you see, everything you hear, and everything you feel is SCREAMING at you to run headlong in the direction of a dream?
