Contrary to popular belief, I’m a nice girl. I care a lot about a lot and often those close to me look to me to see if I care about the stuff they care about too. Often times I do. But a lot of times, quite frankly, I don’t give a damn. We tend to worry about all the wrong things sometimes and give life to things that we need to let die.
This applies to things both serious and entertainment-based. Like, no, I don’t care about Obama’s speech on x, y, z. And, no, I really don’t care about Kimye and their latest fiasco. Its just really hard for me to find sh*ts to give about things that I can’t control, that don’t affect me, and that are just plain idiotic. For instance…….
1. The Best Man Holiday
OK I’m Black, I get it. I’m supposed to care about every Black movie ever made, round-up all my home girls and see it the first night it’s out. And honestly, I wouldn’t mind supporting Black movies and going to look at attractive Black people for a couple of hours. But I’m not all like “OMG! The Best Man Holiday! I have to see it! OMG girlfriend, did you see it yet? Morris Chestnut is too fine.”
Every year it rains. For a long time. Get over it. Stop complaining or move back to Cali.
3. Anything to do with the Moda Center
Chalupas, name changes, etc. Moda must be French for annoying because everything that has happened at the beloved Rose Garden since the name change (including the name change) has annoyed the crap out of me. So what do I do? I stop caring. Enjoy your health care and McMuffins.
Much respect to Damian Lillard for starting #4BarFriday and giving kids and fans a chance to get creative and send their best bars in. It’s cool. It’s neat. I’m just over people who actually call themselves rappers sending in videos and actually getting excited about winning every week. It’s embarrassing. I check a few out too, but I don’t really care enough to really think I’m going to find the next big thing sending 4 bars to an NBA player.
5. Beavers, Ducks, Huskies, and Cougars
Not that team spirit is bad, but I find that the biggest fans of some of our NW teams didn’t even go to the universities they stan for… or any university for that matter. Since I went to Western Oregon (Go Wolves! lol) I find no reason to care about the big teams. I’m not invested. But you can invite me to a civil war party and I’ll bring the chips.
6. Rappers Who Complain About Not Getting Props
How can you be mad that someone didn’t put you in their top 10 when you do stuff like this? I’m tired of people saying we need to support “the town” and the reason we fail is a lack of support. Look, some of y’all just suck. Some of y’all don’t deserve support. Some of y’all couldn’t make it to the top 10 if the top 100 all died in a plane crash. Let it go. I don’t care about your thug tears.
7. George Zimmerman
At this point he could blow the entire state of Florida off the map and I wouldn’t blink. Dude is invincible.
His success, his haters, his music that plays every 5 minutes on the radio. Over it. I like the guy and all. But Jesus Christ how long can people jock him? Don’t you have something better to do? There are starving children in Africa. Care about something else for a day or two.
9. Clubs Getting Closed
*sigh* Although the war on hip-hop in Portland is something I do very much care about. I’m not going to sit here and cry racism when a place like Fontaine Bleau gets shut down. Stop catering to the crowds that ALWAYS have problems and maybe people will stop getting shot. I’m tired of my classmates having funerals.
10. You caring
I’m actually pretty narcissistic, so I write these things to hear myself talk. I don’t care if you care or not. The self gratification is enough. Peace!
