12 April 2008

18 years.

new layout. it says...

"on april 12, 1990, there arrived on this earth and on the arms of a woman, a child. a child who'd be raised to keep his head high no matter how gray the skies become. a child who'd grow to recognize respect, honor and dignity and hold it close to his heart, because if a man has no posessions, at least he can say he has riches. a child who would later promise his mother that he would uphold his future to bring a smile in her face with the look of pride and joy. i have yet to accomplish that. but i will.

another year for failures. another year for pain. another year for scrutiny from all sides. but it's another year to row. another year to learn. another year to improve in all aspects and become the person that you want to be regardless of what anyone says. no one else. just pure jomi. i have spent eighteen years on this earth. here's to another one to imprint a change in people's lives. that's what i want. what else do i want? figure it out..."

on other news, this gave me a big smile on a predictably mundane day...

"The Los Angeles Lakers are Pacific Division champions for the first time in four years and have a shot at the Western Conference title after winning their most important game of the season. Kobe Bryant, making a push for his first MVP award, had 29 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists, and the Lakers held off the New Orleans Hornets 107-104 Friday night to move within a half-game of the conference-leading Hornets."

NO ONE predicated they'd be pac div champs. yet they still did it. a lot of people say the hornets are better than the lakers. the score was 63-33 near the end of second quarter. next in line is that top seed...

something else gave me a smile...
