Coincidence: I was looking at this while listening to NPR “This American Life” about coincidences and there was a story about a guy who met his father for the first time while hiking on a pyramid.

27. I can never sleep when…

I can never sleep when I’m hungry or thirsty. I try to drink water before bed so I don’t have to get up, but if I have hunger pains, then I’ll eat a banana, yogurt or cereal. Soy milk takes care of both sometimes. I just don’t like having to brush my teeth again. These cravings are especially prevalent if I went to the gym a few hours beforehand.

I also don’t drink coffee or large amounts of milk tea past 4. It’s part of my policy if I want a good night sleep. I learned this the hard way in college when I would stay up til 4am until the buzz would fade. Worse was when I took a chemistry midterm while super caffeinated. I remember focusing so much on one difficult problem that I didn’t have time to finish the the others.

Lemme tell you a story: I was walking around the hood, taking pics near this house when I heard something. It was someone playing piano. It sounded like Mozart or Haydn, something classical. I wasn’t sure if it was a recording initially because there were no mistakes.It reminded me of when I took piano lessons, when I had to sit and do homework while my sister practiced. I haven’t been to a recital in years since. Mozart was always tricky for me because I felt it lacked feeling.

Since I had nothing to do, I just stood in the driveway and listened until the playing stopped. Voices inside gave some advice on the playing. A bird flew onto a TV antenna and sang a song. Before the next movement could begin, I walked back home.

Mutya Keisha Siobhan - Flatline

British pop is so ahead of the game.

Blood Orange - “Time Will Tell”

Time will tell if you can figure this and work it out.
No one’s waiting for you anyway, don’t be stressed out.
Even if it’s something that you’ve had your eye on,
It is what it is.

So great live. He dances just like that. This song really speaks to my life. I like that it’s an amalgamation of his other songs.

Beyonce - “Best Thing I Never Had”

There was a time
I thought, that you did everything right
No lies, no wrong
Boy I must’ve been out of my mind
So when I think of the time that I almost loved you
You showed your ass and I, I saw the real you

I’m the best thing you never had. I have keep saying that to myself.

26. The worst fight I ever had…

I don’t deal well with people who don’t like me. It’s something I’ve had to deal with my whole life, even when I have no sense of why that person doesn’t like me. It throws me off because I don’t try to be unlikeable. Usually, it’s girls who say they hate me because they think I’m trying to get them into trouble, they liked me, or they think I’m full of myself. When people say it to my face, it’s hard to take. When it’s on Facebook, on the phone, or done anonymously, I take it as spiteful cowardice.

My fights with my dad are definitely the worst. He and I are similar in that we keep to ourselves and let our emotions boil over. I hate and fear his temper. The problem is that he has high expectations of me, so when I refuse his advice or talk back, he starts yelling like a wild animal, saying I’m weak and stupid. His words wouldn’t hurt so much if it didn’t go straight to my inner child. I don’t think the rift between us will ever fill. Though I still go home and he’s better about it, I’m always on guard.

25. When it’s cold outside, I …

I like to lay down on a couch and curl up my body, not quite in the fetal position but pretty close to it. I put my hands between my knees to warm them. I try to put my head on a pillow so that my neck doesn’t hurt when I get up. Sometimes, I’ll be under a blanket, which is really a trap because then I hate getting up for anything. As long as I am on a flat surface, I’m pretty comfortable.

Sometimes, I’ll drink tea, which I find addictive when I have the chance to indulge in it. I can drink so much of it to the point my pee is like pure water. On cold days, I like having a warm core and water, which is cheap and widely available, can do the trick. It was my grandma’s habit to have a cup of hot water in her mug, which she would cover with foil so that it doesn’t cool. Right now, I like earl grey and chai.

In general, I like bundling up more than dressing down. I hate heat, which I’ve written about before. Cold can be numbing and it might take the fun out of going outside freely without thinking, but it’s seasonal. There’s so much more to wear and look good in when layers are an option.
