I'm back. And I've missed you! As usual thank you for checking up on me, keeping me in your thoughts, sending me emails, and nagging me to post... I've been focusing a lot of my time on my stage play, "Love Sick Fool," and the completion of "Full Circle," all for you of course. It's very difficult to write a sequel, especially when you don't want to let down your fans!
I've been taking some personal time too...continuing the struggle of family. Primarily my cousin that is incarcerated and my cousin who has crossed the river Jordan. Learning who I am, and doing my 5-mile a week power walk. If these pants get any more loose…
I've been going through some things in the dating department, not even dating, just meeting cool men. I've just been really irritated with the quality of men that I’ve been running into lately, but that all changed this evening. I hung out with this really cool guy. Let's just call him "G" (LOL) He's a really great guy.
He has a wonderful since of humor, very entertaining, engaging, smart, has something to say, laid back, has a nice vocabulary, that compliment his very masculine features, that accent a nice smile to go along with his well groomed appearance and his enticing lips. Medium-caramel brown skin, baldhead, glasses. Very well put together and he didn't mention sex at all, which was a relief. He didn't talk about my weight either (yes men do bring that up on casual encounters). I had a great time. We went to a Thai restaurant had nice laughs; great conversation...and I can't forget his singing. I asked him if he sang a lot in the shower...not to say he has a bad voice, but he sings a lot. Very entertaining, though. He’s in his thirties, and I think that may workout better for me. Not that I am trying to get with him, but I think older men will work out better for me. Just as long as they don’t have a problem dating someone ten years their junior.
I think older man would provide me a nice balance, since I am not the average 23 year old, and I have a lot of great things going for myself that would compliment an established, nicely aged man. So yes, I have to step up my game so I can really nail the guy that I want, I’m sorry man that I want.
The only thing I am mad at myself about during this casual encounter is talking about my book and me being a writer. I don't like to talk about that too much. I like for people to see me in non-Trent Jackson mode and see me as a person, not what I do creatively, or career wise, if you get what I am saying. That is a save the best for last type thing. But the whole experience was positive, just when I had lost all faith in Black men; God sent one to shut me up. (God, I got your point) And he’s a Capricorn....lol. See God has a way of proving points, period.
I've been working on the rest of my book tour calendar. Minnesota, Nashville, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Houston, Dallas, Baltimore, Oakland, San Diego, Las Vegas, New Orleans and I am going to close with a finale in Los Angeles around the end of October early November. For my finale I will launch the play, “Love Sick Fool,” and do one final signing of “At This Moment.” I really hope and pray that I can get Rashid and Fred together with me for my finale so we can all do something together! That is my dream and goal for the year, that would just be complete heaven for me.
Days have been getting better. I am creating, evolving, and learning everyday. Not to mention I met a nice guy today, what a difference that makes. I am still waiting on the feds to run me a check, looking for a day job, and taking life one day at a time.
Thank you to T.C. & L.T. for making this day better. I appreciate that.
Coming up this week: The Honda Civic Theory, Fred Smith (Finally & For real), and whatever else comes up this week.
One more thing. I voted for Vonzell and Carrie. I'm not going to stock up on haterade. Today was too good of a day to give energy to that man I don't like
