It’s 2008. I’m closer to being old. The only cool thing about 2008 is that it’s the One Hundred Year Anniversary of my sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., the first sorority founded for Black college women. Oh, and The Wire is back. Other than these two points, 2008 had nuthin’ else going for it, as far as I am concerned.
My thing for ’08 is going to be work it, hustle, just DO it. I’ve spent many a month now, not doing the projects I want to do, not pursuing my goals. Confusing myself. But ’08 is my transition year. Part of my problem is I can’t seem to keep my behind out of school. I swore off school once I was done at MIT, but somehow found myself in this grad program at USC. I promise I didn’t plan this, this was totally accidental. Either way, I wrap up the master’s in May, and I plan on hitting the ground running. I am going to take it easy these first two quarters, quietly planning my execution come summertime.
And now, I leave you with my favorite hustle lyrics of the moment, by the esteemed Jay-Z:
“Hustle cane, hustle clothes, or hustle music/But hustle hard in any hustle that you pick.”
