Ass, Bitch, and Bruh: When you at the doctor gettin a physical and he go to grab ya balls bruh if you get a physical and your doctor is a female, it’s the worst. Lemme set the scene for y’all. 5th grade, a young nigga is playing football every weekend after school. My team was the Vikings and our quarterback was some ass, so we were a pretty good representation of the NFL team. Anyway I needed to submit a physical before practices began. So my mom swerve up to a doctors to get a physical. Whole time during the car ride I’m thinking: “Wow, some random ass nigga is gon fondle my ballsack.” Luckily and sadly that wasn’t the case. So I get called in to go next and we walk back to the doctors room. The doctor inside the room is a 30 year old white dude so I’m like, “Ay no homo.” “Huh?” He goes. “I just had to say that before we begin.” They do the standard heart beat and ear checks and shit right. Then all of sudden the doctor says, “Mom, if you’d like to step out, another doctor will be in to do the rest.” So now I’m hyperventilating like fucking spongebob cause I thought ol dude was the one who was gon fondle me word to my uncle. But nah that wasn’t the case. So I’m sitting in the room by myself waiting for this other doctor to come in when the door opens. Ight so when I say this bitch was a pornstar in the making, I’m not exaggerating 🚫🧢 . Her face was a 9 and her body an 11 word to George Bush. And her fucking white coat was open just enough to see her cleavage word to sedimentary rocks. “Hi!” she says. “Go ahead and drop your pants for me and we can begin.” So me being me, I drop my pants and stand there in my underwear like a dumbass. She laughs at me and my ears get hot. “Those too.” She said. So slowly I drop my shit right, and now she gets on her knees in front of me. BOYYYYYYYY do you know how difficult it is to make your dick soft again when it hard? So she puts on gloves and grabs my nuts like it’s a fucking bowl of popcorn. “Look right and cough for me.” I tried to cough but I whimpered instead 💀 i was focusing so hard on NOT being hard. It was like my dick was a metalloid. Anyway she released her grip and I finally started breathing again. I pulled my pants up so fucking fast. Anyway moral of the story is, Naruto is stronger than Goku

But what shocked her more was the semi-automatic rifle she found in his guitar case. "I'm preparing myself for the school shooting,” the teenager wrote, according to court documents. “I can’t wait. My aim has gotten much more accurate ... I can’t wait to walk into that class and blow all those f--ers away." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As soon as authorities found out about the man’s plans they pulled him from his Kamiak High School class and arrested him. While in custody Joshua attempted to run away and kicked one of the police.

cnn.com, Fire, and Memes: U.S: NEWS NEWS UPDATE Feb 15 | A detailed look at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. Yesterday afternoon, 19 year-old Nikolas Cruz opened fire inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The shooting resulted in 17 fatalities which included students and adults. Cruz is being charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder. ___ The shooting began around 2:40 pm, shortly before school dismissal time. The gunman wore a gas mask into the school, armed with an AR-15 rifle, smoke grenades, and “countless magazines,” officials report. The gunman set off the fire alarm, causing students and teachers to crowd the hallways as he began shooting. He then ducked out of the building by hiding between crowds of students. By the end of the initial shooting rampage, the suspect had killed 12 people inside the school, before killing an additional three outside, including someone standing on the street corner. Two more victims died from their injuries in local hospitals. ___ Nikolas Cruz was arrested in a neighboring city known as Coral Springs just a few miles from the school. Cruz had previously attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, but was expelled for issues that school officials have declined to specify. Other students and members of the school have noted that Nikolas Cruz exhibited “troubling” behavior, and often demonstrated possession of weapons on his social media pages. ___ Since the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012, there have been at least 239 school shootings nationwide. In these 239 shootings, 438 people were shot, 138 of which died. ___ Jerry News has elected to not share photos of the gunman. ___ Footage - photos: NYT, WSJ, CNN

Confidence, Energy, and Friends: ASPIRE TO INSPIRE BEFOR WE EXPIRE Has anyone ever inspired you to change your life in a significant way that made you healthier, happier, or more fulfilled? If so, you understand the difference that positive inspiration can make in a person’s life. - 👀Would you like to know the simplest ways to inspire people and change their lives?👇 ✔️Care. If you can’t show a person that you genuinely care about them, do you think you will be able to inspire them? The answer is a resounding, “NO!” Show people you care in your words (“How are you today?”) and your actions (small acts of kindness go a long way). ✔️Be enthusiastic. The saying “enthusiasm is contagious” is common enough to be cliché, but it’s a cliché because it’s true. Reflect enthusiasm every day to the people you are in contact with and I’m willing to wager your genuine smiles, positive energy, and caring concern will be returned ten-fold. ✔️Earn trust. If a person you know and love tells you a secret, it stays between you and them. Trust takes a long time to build, but it can be destroyed overnight, so don’t take part in workplace gossip or unnecessary drama in your social networks so you can be a positive influence that people are unafraid to talk to. ✔️Reach for the stars. No one will be inspired by a person who resigns themselves to “reality” (such a dreadful place that sounds devoid of hope or personal growth in my opinion). Be ambitious, aim high, and never surrender if you want to inspire people that they, too, can accomplish anything they set their mind to. ✔️Stay true to who you are. A lot of us have a variety of “selves” that come out depending on the social situation: home, work, and friends all require a different song-and-dance. But putting on a different show for every group of people you encounter is super exhausting, and it’s certainly not a good way to inspire people around you. Would you place your confidence in a person who was so uncomfortable in their personality that they felt the need to pander to whatever crowd they were with? Embrace your true self without apology. - aspire inspire success live millionairementor

Arguing, Family, and Friends: Rap Pioneer Who Popularized Term 'Hip Hop,' Lovebug Starski Dies At 57 @balleralert Rap Pioneer Lovebug Starski, Who Popularized The Term ‘Hip Hop,’ Dies At 57 - blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kevin Smith, a DJ from the Bronx, and better known as LovebugStarski who coined the term “hip-hop,” unfortunately passed yesterday at age 57. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ RollingStone reports his death was caused by a heart attack he had in Las Vegas, where he recently relocated. Starski’s daughter, Tiffany Smith, confirmed the cause of death. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Starski was among a core group of DJ pioneers that include DJKoolHerc, AfrikaBambaataa, GrandmasterFlash and GrandWizardTheodore. Rolling Stone says they all helped shape hip-hop’s parameters in the days before recorded rap in the 1970s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DJ Grandmaster Flash told rolling stone what made Starski so different from the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "What set him apart was he was able to DJ and talk on the mic and do both at the same time, and he was really really good at this," explained Flash. “He played an extremely important role in the development of this. We all do it now, talk on the mic and DJ same time, but in the hip-hop world, Starski was probably the first to handle it." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some may argue that Keith “Cowboy” Wiggins of Grandmaster Flash and the FuriousFive introduced the word “hip-hop,” but Smith accepted credit for the term in an interview with Amoeba Music in 2017. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "That was one of my rhymes when I would get stuck for words and I used to go 'hip, hop, the hip, the hip, hip the hopping," he said. "You know it was just a nursery rhyme that coincided with the music, and that's the God's honest truth." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Condolences are sent to Smith’s family and friends. Salute to all “hip-hop” icons everywhere.

While filming his latest music video, “God's Plan” in Miami, he went on a good samaritan giveaway spree. First, he gave a check to a women’s homeless shelter for $50,000, according to CapitalXtra. Then the Canadian artist gave $50,000 to 20-year-old Destiny James, a first-generation college student, raised by a single parent in a low-income area. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ James wrote on Instagram, “I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I’ve been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time.

You don’t understand what this means to me! I would’ve never imagined this happening to me.

Goals, Life, and Love: IF YOU BELIEVE, YOU WILL. IF YOU DON'T, YOU WON'T. In any given day, our subconscious mind processes around 60,000 thoughts. It’s those same thoughts that are pushing us towards whatever it is that we desire while at the same time bringing us closer to the things that we fear. How can we achieve anything we want when our minds are almost working against us? 🤔 The truth of the matter is, as we already know it deep down inside, we get whatever it is that we focus on in life. When we focus on negative thoughts such as fear, anger, and resentment, we get more of the same. In fact, we live in a constant state of lack, wondering why we can never achieve the things we believe we want to achieve so badly in life. However, when we live an abundant life, steeped in positivity, moving away from fear, anger, and resentment, and moving towards love, growth, contribution, and forgiveness, we get more of the same. Like attracts like. It’s rather simple and straightforward. But, we don’t often notice it at a micro level. We tend to look at things on a grander scale, not really realizing what’s going on in the here-and-now. - 👇So, if you want to achieve those goals that you set for yourself, live an abundant life, and grow, there are 3 simple rules for achieving anything you want in life: ✔️Know what you want and why you want it. ✔️Create and follow a massive action plan. ✔️Track and analyze your results, making changes along the way. - You’re welcome! 😉 - success achieve mindset millionairementor
