Today I went for this fundraiser for the best friend of my girlfriends mum. She has cancer all over and they’re burning through their money for her treatments, so they has this fundraiser. My girlfriends family, her two grandmas and her aunt and uncle all drove down to a bar in Langley. It was an Irish themed pub and we all had a couple drinks and some burgers. They also had a silent auction and a 50/50 draw. For those who don’t know (i just found out today), a 50/50 draw is when people buy tickets for a certain amount of money. When the winning ticket is drawn, the winning players gets half, while the organizers of the draw take the other half. In this case, the woman with cancer and her family. So I won shit all in the silent auction tho I bid on a quite a few things. But the uncle and Aunty of my girlfriend, (Jeanie and Chris) won the 50/50, which was 500 bucks! When they went up to claim it, they spoke briefly with the emcee, the Chris came back with a smile on his face and so did Jeanie. Then the emcee goes “folks… THEYVE DECIDED TO GIVE IT ALL TO DIANA!” When they got back to the table everyone was congratulating them and saying what a cool thing it was. Later on I was talking to Chris and said, “Man that was a pretty selfless thing you did for Diana” and he goes, “just a little. Jeannie and I Already decided beforehand if we won we’d give to the people here who need it most… And that sure ain’t us!”
I’ve gotten a whole lot more respect from them and at the same time I learned that charity it rewarding in its own special way.
a New Years resolution I’ve decided to start early: instead of spending my money on material items, I’ve decided to spend it on experiences, events and people! I wanna go to more concerts, skydiving, wine tasting and vacations! First purchase, tickets to jcole in January! Yusssss!
The one exception to this rule being a jet black Calvin Klein suit. Oh god how I want a classic black suit.
the day is january 1st, 3009. a group of humans listen to boom boom pow. when fergie says that she is so 3008 they all stand shocked and realise. fergie is now behind the times. fergie herself has become 2000 and late. this is unbelievable news to the humans. hours later the planet descends into war and chaos.
It’s an understatement, but kick boxing with Denny is brutal.
It’s the equivalent of hanging yourself from a harness, bottom dangling below you. Then a group of MLB batters use your thighs as a piñata for 10 minutes. Occasionally, they’ll also drive a couple balls into your chest, yenno, for good measure. Actually, I’d prefer the baseball/ piñata combo, it would just hurt less and the players don’t have a personal vendetta against you. But since it’s all the same, I’ll stick with Denny.
