Today’s Word is… REDUNDANCY

Perhaps my least favorite activity is online job hunting.  It’s a job itself.  Searching postings, forwarding resumes, scheduling/attend interview, get rejected. Lather, Rinse, Repeat.  Most of the job boards are full of fluff, advertised as a great entry level management opportunity but in reality you’re just soliciting paper clips and vacuum belts to irritated business owners #NBCSpoilerAlert.  On the other end, you  have temporary agencies who basically spend their time looking up the same job postings you were.   “Tristan, something has just came in, I think its a great opportunity” “So uh, how do you feel about paper clips?”


Job hunting isn’t the only source of redundancy in my life.  Unfortunately, my social life has been on auto-pilot for a while as well.  Feel like I’ve been having the same conversations with different people of the same group. It’s either


“Damn bro, you been hiding what you been up too”

“Nothing much man, just working really”

“Oh yeah i feel you…yo you heard <story about fight, so and so got locked  up, someone else got out, such and such is pregnant now>”

“Damn thats crazy”

“yeah man, yo you got my jack we gotta get up sometimes”

“We do man, holla at me”


“I miss you”

“I miss you too”

“No you don’t that’s why you’re always too busy for me”

“We’re talking now aren’t we”

“Oh its only because you’re bored”

“Am I supposed to hit you up when I’m busy”

“You just don’t get it…never mind”



“We need to talk”

“About what now”

“Us…this situation…”

“Has anything changed since the last talk”

“Yes i haven’t even <something i have told her i needed her to change>”

“But <proves how she’s lying, shows all my work>”

“See you always do this”

(there’s ALOT more to this maybe i’ll get more into detail, maybe I wont, stay tuned)



“Hey you what you up to”


“Oh same here how was your day”


“Why are you being so short with me”

“I’m not”

“What I do this time”

“Nothing I’m just upset over something i shouldn’t be”


“You already know so why bother”


Yes, I’m the cliche negro that will text k as an indication of this conversation being over.

I guess lately I’ve been feeling like I’m in a rut.  If someone else told me this I would say, go head and switch your style up but it’s easier said than done.  Perhaps I need to move and start over someplace.  I forget where I was going with this, I’m rambling.
