Reminisce – Gift and Curse
Visiting and now living in Atlanta, Ga I’ve had the opportunity to have many experiences, some good, some bad, some totally fucking awesome.
The more time you spend in a city, the more places you have experiences in. You build up a familiarity with the nooks and crannies of your surroundings. Whether it’s a classic midtown BBQ joint you had a car accident at which ended up being hilarious in the end and probably breaking up a couple on the rocks or driving past the first apartment complex which was meant to be your future home ha yeaa that worked out well!
Can’t help but say bitch every time I ride by there.
Yea I really need to let that go! But I do smile/snicker afterwards so it’s not like I’m bitter lol. But you do really get to experience the gift and the curse of The Reminisce.
Now yesterday I’m doing some recon at this park, in an area I recently moved to and just trying to figure out if this is where I’ll be getting in my upcoming fitness regime or not. I roll up and at first I’m thinking
Why does this spot look familiar?
On going deeper into the parking. lot, I just had to laugh go myself…ooh yea I did smash that chic in her car right there in that spot years ago after she was so eager to get it in. Ahh *Good times. Now at least that was a great memory a cool reminisce.
Another good one, I took a drive through my old neighborhood recently, I really miss living on south side, it was my home for many years, it’s just different on that side of town. When 2Chainz says “right off old nat, right by the Wendy’s” I smile to myself, yea good times! South side ATL, just awesome sauce all day every day.
Now today I decided to listen to the radio, didn’t want the regular ratchet stuff from Streetz or v103 or the bullshit that repeats every hour on the hour plus commercials. So I found a station playing reggae, show called Caribbean Running, during the break, the host came on. Ha! yeaaaaa I know that voice, good for you lady, live the dream!
Anyway all in all this post was probably a lot to do with nothing, but in a nut shell reminiscing can be both a gift and curse, as the saying goes memories don’t leave like people do, they always stay with you… something, something Google it….. shit!!
