Why? 8/16/07

1. Why I am I sooooo happy that football season is upon us? And why do none of my friends like football. I swear that I am the only gay black man that likes the game. Seeing some of the sexiest men on the planet in tights and helmets should be enough for any gay man or any woman to want to watch.

2. Why have I gained 10 more pounds than I intended? It's because I have been eating whatever I want and haven't been to the gym that I am still paying for in 4 months. I now weigh just under 200lbs. Guess where I will be going when I get home tomorrow? Bally's Northlake!!!!!!!!!!!!

3. Why do I keep putting off going back to school? It's because law school is expensive as hell. I was looking at the University of South Carolina law school where tuition is $16800 PER SEMESTER! And it's not just tuition. Most schools don't allow first year students to work any amount of hours. Unless I find a rich husband, I can't afford that. By the time I graduate, I will have probably 120K in student loans! I'll never be able to pay that off and live comfortably. Until I am debt free or debt low, I am just gonna put off school. Or at least until I get rid of the fear of flunking out my first year.

4. Why did it take me so long to realize that in order for a relationship to work, you have to just let go of the small things? When Hollywood does something that annoys me *like pissing with the bathroom door open* I just let it go. Since I have dialed back on the bitchiness, things have been going well. But he IS gonna have to clean up behing himself when he is at my house!

5. Why does money *the lack or scarcity off* seem to be the bain of most peoples' existence? I swear that there never seems to be enough no matter how hard you work. I'm not broke, but I can never seem to have enough. Will I ever be in a position to just spend all willy-nilly and not have to worry about bills? Where is that damn lottery ticket?

6. Why am I reevaluating my goals and aspirations from my New Years initiatives? I have been drinking less. I have been going off on people a little less. I have not found another job because I haven't been actively looking. I have been taking time for myself. I am not spending less. I have not been getting my body together. I have only met one other Atlanta blogger this year. I have been a little happier. I need to get it together.

7. Why do I have is almost every link in my internet favorites to a blog? It's because I enjoy reading them and think that I am addicted. I love reading about other peoples' lives. I might not always comment because I don't have anything to say, but you can bet your life that I'm reading.

8. Why is there a dude who likes me that makes me want to drop Hollywood sometimes? Dude just has that winning personality and an infectious smile that make me smile everytime he winks his eye at me. I would avoid him, but he is a friend of a friend. Whenever I see that friend, dude is always with him. Hollywood better hurry up and commit!!!!!!!!!!

9. Why did I just attend my first White Party on Sunday. It was sponsored by 5friends4life at Club Fever? I was dressed in white from the neck down with a splash of blue in the belt and shoes. I had always thought that color themed parties were stupid, but I really had a good time. The Dj mixed music like he was born to do so and I danced until I was tired and sweaty. I even remarked to one person that "This is what a muthafucking party is like" and she gave me a high 5 right on the dance floor. And I only had 2 drinks *woohoooooo*. I am supposed to attend another one on Pride Weekend. I hope that I have as much fun.

10. Why have I adopted "fcuk that/them..." as my motto for the rest of the year? I'm sick of worrying about shit that I either have no control over or is hard to control. Fcuk them bills! Fckk those haters! Fcuk that job! Fcuk the bullshit! Fcuk it all! Thanks go to Mo'nique for the inspiration

You are not the only gay man who is into football, but yes, we are an oppressed minority within an oppressed minority. When I want to talk X's and O's, some of the children just get all a dither. I belong to a listserv of gay men of color into sports where we can speak freely.

I'm not really a football fan which is funny since my entire family are fanatics. Now basketball? I can get down with that.

I feel ya pain about the gym, I havn't been since early June my damn self, and I know I've picked up some wait, but this too shall be corrected.

I should try a "white party" out, never been, but should do it at least once too.

I too was a little hesitant to go to a theme party until i attended a white party in Puerto Rico. I really enjoyed it and the theme really connected us.

man that money issue resonates like a grand canyon echo. where the heck does it all go?!

another man trying to get the goods? sounds exciting, but remember: if he can't respect your current relationship; he may not respect one with you.

@Bernie-None of the GBM here in Atlanta seem to be into football. Even though we do have the best looking team in the league!LOL

@D.Lavarjames-I'm hitting the gym today!

@Life-I'll call you soon. Are you all ready to move? I signed us up for that referall!!!!!!!!!!!

@whozhe-It's true that the theme connected us all together, except for the 2 that decided to wear bue jeans.

@Kennonpurdy-I can deal with the pissin, but if the brotha decides to ish with the door open, then i'm going to be the subject on Nancy Grace one night!

@Kennyking78-I'm 6'2", but my normal,lean, size is about 170lbs. That's when all of the belly is usually gone! I gained a little weight to lower my blood pressure and it worked, but I gained it all in one place.

@Sean Stone- We need scholarships!!!!!

@YABG-The thing with the other dude is that he does respect my current relationship, as I do also. We haven't done ANYTHING, other than flirt, but he hasn't done anything to disrespect me.

@Corey Keith-You and I of course need to meet since we did go the the same university. And a get together would be cool, but i'm not the best planner in the world.
