Try make it a daily practice to begin each day by thinking of someone else,
and then making a decision to do something, anything, that will bring a smile to their face. :)
We get to go up on the roof of MCC Every other day. It's usually for basketball, sometimes football (NOT soccer, get it right) for an hour at a time..I don't play basketball for many reasons. Mostly because everyone is 6 ft tall, and they seem to be mixing the sport of basketball with bare knuckle boxing when they play..
Football on the other day, why the fuck not. Those that know me (WERD UP) from back in the ends are well versed in my Maradonna-like skills in football. On a serious note, i'm fucking rubbish at football. I can't do more than one kickup, but i can tackle the ball off people pretty easily. In England i'm looked at as being absolutely quadraplegically spasticatedly shit at football, in New York on the other hand, people actually think i'm good. Seriously. Every time we have Rec, i get these spanish dudes coming up to me
"Hey english, no football?" and so on..Up until about a week ago, i was playing in plimsoles. Those are the shoes you are given as standard in jail, and they are fucking wack. They are falling apart as it is, but when playing football in them, you can't run, and everytime you want to kick the ball/shoot you have to weigh up whether it is worth it...as the shoe will be flying off with it. Luckily this dude known as 'OG' because he's done 25 years in jail, gave me his 'sneakers' when he left. How kind!
On basketball days, it's a lot more chilled affair. They have a stereo system on the roof, and usually pump out some kind of 'young weezy' or 'niki minaj', but on occasions, they will play some funk, james brown, rick james etc..which is cool! Watching a load of heads play basketball, and play it extremely well, while drinking some nice hot coffee with vanilla milk is one of my highlights of the week. The horrible air they have in the building, that is just constantly circulated through fart infested ventilation systems, is making me sick..and i don't want people to know i am sick, because it's more than likely i will be sent to quarantine. And BUN that off for xmas..being in HERE is bad enough! So the fresh air on the roof really is good for me..
There are a few people that think they can spit bars in here too...they can't, all these dribbling morons can't rhyme for shit, speaking of, i heard someone try and rhyme the word shit with shit the other day. Amazing. I think it's only a matter of time before some Slew Dem lyrics get busted out an shower these wastemen WAY down the road :D
a nice quote i read
'To be nobody-but-myself, in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you like everyone else-
means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting'
