"It doesn't matter what people tell you. It doesn't matter what they might say. Sometimes you have to leave home. Sometimes, running away means you're headed in the exact right direction."
— Alice Hoffman (Practical Magic)

Pause.

Things never go as planned and we have come to a bit of a halt since being swamped with unexpected debt due to bad choices (no blame!) It is what it is. But I won’t give up. Still gotta stick to the plan..as hard as it may seem to accomplish the tasks at hand. The little setbacks are what make me think of what to do once we get above water. I just gotta stay focused and not give up, even though it’s easier said than done. Gotta stay hustling to try to get the things I want and keep busy. 2nd job, school, photography, all of the above. I can’t wait to go to Bingo tonight though and try my luck. Lotto winner was right next door in San Mateo…Ugggh! Thinking of winning makes my heart race but then it’s back to reality. Gotta keep it movin’….

Too cute. Browsing yelp and came across the dealership my little brother works at in Fremont…good to see him getting his hustle on and see the good reviews from customers 👍👍😍😍 I’m so proud of you @chiefbmuli - ❤️u. #HanleesFremontHyundai #askforBrandon
