Not Believing Anything He Says

My father has been trying to convince me that he's going to do whatever for me but to tell you the truth I can't believe anything that comes out of his mouth. I've been visiting my grandmother for a while because she's been very ill. I go over there on the weekends for a visit. My father has been talking to me about how he isn't going to let me down and he's going to change. As he talks to me I stare at him in disbelief. I still feel like he loves his girlfriend more he talks to her a lot. The fact that you would call me a Stupid A word hurts like needle through my hand because I'm your son. Who's father in their right mind would say that to your own son. I dislike him with a passion and I can't even look at him without chuckling. I half to hold my laughter so I won't disrespect him. I'll try to trust him but after that I can't believe anything that pops out of his mouth. It's nothing but words to me just plan old simple words. I'm doing well and I can take care of myself but I know one day he's going to need me and I'm going to need him.

The Program I Went To On Wednesday

We had this program on Wednesday. They were teaching us about careers that we want presiew in my life. I signed up for to which were Financial Literacy and Behind the Music. I suggested these two jobs because I want be a singer-songwriter (Dancer) for my career and at the same time manage all my money for the music business. Raw Beauty which is a music group preparing on coming out with a new album. Jessica who was the female and the man's name that remains withheld talked about how education is the key to success and to getting you a good job. Jesse short for Jessica, tells her that some of her family members didn't make it in the music career. She explained how they never had a back up plan. Three people from the music industry sat down and talked about how they worked hard in the business of music. The songwriter explained how he worked with Chris Brown, Ciara, and other varieties of artists. I learned a lot from them and they helped me grow as a student.

In Financial Literacy I learned that when I comes to money you have to be very persistent about what you spend. I learned about the 4 key words (budget, scholarship, save, and banking). Those words are the simple ways of helping you in your life. I also learned about student loans how you don't want to do that because you won't have a way to pay them back. That's why it's important to have a plan for your money.

Music Video

I'm working on my music video for ''Little Dancer.'' Little Dancer is basically about having fun, being yourself and freedom of expression. Being your own transactor regardless of what may occur. Right now we're looking for locations around ''South Philly'' and so far we got ''South Street.'' Ms. Janelle (Video Producer from Education Works) is helping me with choreographing moves for the video. I've came up with some moves myself. I practiced all night and I was very tired but I managed to master the moves. We were practicing all week in Education Works all hour long. I really enjoyed myself working with Ms. Janelle. It's going to be amazing. And I'm going to have some haters.
