I still don't have regular access to the internet and I hate posting through my mobile. I'm happier now that I'm going to church but fandom still makes me feel tired in different ways. (Over nine years of experience and I feel burn out with certain attitudes now.) Not completely dead but I'm lurking in some old spaces rereading fan-fiction from my former fandoms. [khr, naruto, inuyasha, kkm, prince of tennis]

updates in life:
- finish school but still don't have a job
- the move south to Macon didn't happen; I'm praying that my family find employment closer to home than current employment location
- now a member of a church and now baptized with my sister Ana
- join the church choir and we doing seven songs for the Lent/Easter Season
- my dog Sissy continues to surprise me

my fandom activity:
- not going to AWA this year
- quit tumblr for my mental health
- trying to reduce time reading fan-fiction
- still cleaning up my pinboard
- what I read so far this year at pinboard
- starts reading mangas again
- going to start watching old Doctor Who with Ana
- making fan-mixes since I still don't know how to write

Listen.. people be asking me all the time, "Yo Mos, what's gettin' ready to happen with Hip-Hop?"

I tell em, "You know what's gonna happen with Hip-Hop? Whatever's happening with us"

If we smoked out, Hip-Hop is gonna be smoked out. If we doing alright, Hip-Hop is gonna be doing alright.

People talk about Hip-Hop like it's some giant livin' in the hillside comin' down to visit the townspeople.

We ARE Hip-Hop. Me, you, everybody, we are Hip-Hop. So Hip-Hop is going where we going.

So the next time you ask yourself where Hip-Hop is going, ask yourself, "Where am I going? How am I doing?"

'Til you get a clear idea. So.. if Hip-Hop is about the people and the Hip-Hop won't get better until the people get better, then how do people get better? Well, from my understanding people get better when they start to understand that, they are valuable...
