#SoloDinnerDate

I'm not in a new state, but today I felt sort of, shitty. I've been so engulfed in working this minimum wage job in order to pay my dues that I've been neglecting all aspects of myself. Although, it seems to give me some sort or purpose, and I enjoy the company of my coworkers, at the end of the day it's easy money, and my coworkers are only coworkers (for now). There's no promise of a career, or friends, and low-key that's all I'm looking for honestly. I'm just a young nigga out here looking for love and money. Yes, a young NIGGA. Whatever it implies. You'd never know unless I told you however. Or maybe you would? Who cares, but it seems pretty standard right? Isn't that the goal for most of us, if not all? Aren't we all niggas in some way? But what does that even mean? Let's do some research and touch back on this topic. *rain check* Some just have a better advantage of achieving goals.

Anyways, I'm here at this restaurant in Georgetown, I-Thai, it's a nice atmosphere and this long island is one if the Best I've had, but it's just a long island. I decided to treat myself to my first happy hour, crazy I've never been. These shrimp dumplings and spring rolls are only $1.50! They're alright tho, something about the dumplings taste a little off to me. I can't quite pin it down. It has the subtle taste of an old sour rag.

Sidenote: Everyone's looking at me eat  by myself. Or the bartender is at least

I have a desire to get a little drunk and greet customers. Sorry, guests. It'll be fun for me tho. I'm realizing that paying by the book to the tee isn't all that great. I've been asking myself what the difference between a winner and a hard worker is lately, cause I'm pretty sure 2nd place works hard as well, but they don't win the gold. Why? I think there's a risk factor involved, winners push limits, take risk,work harder and don't look back. Right? So how do you meet that edge of greatness and cross from mediocrity? Take a risk, fail and fall, or not but be willing to do so.

Trust thyself.
