Currently I am on the Q train going home. I'm about to reach Dekalb Avenue to be exact and I just wanted to post. Half boredom half inspiration lol. It was my homie, Jungmin's birthday yesterday. March 2nd. I didn't get to do anything with him yesterday but we're gonna go eat at Brennan and Carr's in about an hour. His friendship is really something to me.
Without Jungmin in my life I don't know where I would be. Not saying he saved my life from death or anything but I'm here where I am because he was the invitation to the life I have now, and the friends I have now. I know God has his way with everything an has everything worked out for us beforehand. He knows the best for us and he proceeds by puttin us in certain places at exact times. There's a verse in Scripture that says that almost exactly but I forgot where it is haha. But I used to be a goon and I'm still a goon. I'm sneaky and I'm a little snake inside. I'm a trickster and I could probably steal whatever I want if it wasn't for my obedience to Christ.
Jungmin has been one my closest friends since 4th/5th grade. We went to P.S. 255 together and that's where a great friendship started. We graduated from elementary and went across the street to Cunningham together. This is where we really got close and hung out all the time. Then Brandon came into the picture in our 7th grade but that's another post haha. We have so many memories together and experiences that it's ridiculous. From having the same girlfriend to beating up a deaf kid that was humongous haha. Sorta mean but it happened. I'm here now and the person I am because he invited me to FKCB in 7th grade and from there on my life was flipped. I didn't accept Christ right there and then but I made the friends, brothersand sisters I have now. Without them, who knows where I'd be. Maybe I'd be out smoking up every hour of the day. Maybe I'd be having sex with every girl I'd encounter. Or maybe I'd be locked up? Who knows, but I'm grateful to Jungmin's friendship. Without his friendship and invitation to where I am now, I'd be stranded.
Happy birthday nigga and I'll see you in a few minutes.
P.s. Jungmin and I used to have a huge addiction to hoodies in JHS. We used to buy and collect like every Ecko hoody that was out there. Every color, every design. I got him a hoody from uniqlo that reminded me of the good old days. It was cheap but it would be useful for balling in or comfy chilling. Bringing back the hoody era haha. Watch out NY!
Charles, your brother.
