blog 1 (introductory)

I am an student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. My name is Jamahal Redmond and I am from the western part of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As a reader of literacy I would say that I am very observant. I note things that I notice and take them and make predictions on things that could possibly happen in the story.I would like to say that I think that I really am a very skilled reader because read in between the lines to and see if its deeper than what on the line. I don’t read the dictionary to find out what words mean I usually look at the words around it to get the understanding of the word but if couldn’t get the meaning of the word.

Things never go as planned life, love, dreams. Everything you really want in life has to be worked for I thought I always knew this. Sadly I didn't not realizing I would learn this lesson until I had to go through a situation that would apply to me and make me have to follow this. When you are young you don't think about those things feelings how 2 do people our at least consider their feelings. Being an adult is a little different you have to consider all of these things in everything you do no matter if your in pursuit of someone, or just plainly try to get someone to do something for you. Who knew being considered would pay off. Well at least I didn't before O noticed I pretty much never cared about feelings or peoples prospective until I came to IUP. The college experience has changed me at the risk of losing some important people in my life on the way. I wouldn't change this feeling for nothing though because I am to happy to be in the place I am right now. You plan things and they might not come out the way you want to but things will get better though I promise you.

trust no one but yourself

Where should I begin theres about a thousand reasons why I think nobody should ever trust any body. One main reason is that if you trust them you cant think right when making a decision involving them. Then there is the fact that there are to many snitches, liars, and ass niggas out there any way so you can take your chances. I learned a long time ago to not let every body know you so easily don't be predictable. Switch it up don't go the same route keep em guessing. Then one very important one and I believe is the most important is don't let people know how you feel about anything lock all that shit up. Some things are better left unsaid don't do it. Just think of it as giving someone ammunition to play on your feelings and being able to abuse you emotionally. Then lastly and probably most important don't show nobody any love they see that as weakness and they prey on it in your time of need or stab you in the back to come out good and make you get in to trouble.
