Happy Memorial Day from the Oak Park, Il blog!

Memorial Day in the United States was first started to honor American Civil War veterans in the Union, then extended further to all those who fallen during military service during World War 1 but It did not become an official holiday until 1971!

I know right, WTF??? Remembering people who have given their lives for freedom and basic human is very important, and today is a day that gives us all a chance to remember them and be thankful.

These are some links that discuss more about Memorial Day:

While you are partying it up on Memorial Day thank a veteran!

On President’s Day in Oak Park, IL

On President’s day I slept, because I was emotionally drained from the day before, I stayed in the whole day, got my tea and sat here to write some posts for the blog. I was dreading coming back to my apartment in Oak Park, Il I was off from work, and I took the day off from school and even going outside in Oak Park, IL. Driving through the area on Sunday, early in the morning was stressful enough. The area is crazy as hell to get through as is, on a Sunday morning but there are a couple of churches in the area so the traffic gets kind of crazy due to all the parents wanting to drop their kids off for Sunday School. I remember those days when I was innocent before I was even warped by Oak Park, IL.

When I got up and told Sarah fuck the shower and the breakfast I have to get back to the apartment and run through Oak Park, IL like Harrison Ford in Raiders of the Lost Ark (the opening scene)! I hate to be so dramatic but she went through the village a couple of times to visit me or go to Mama Thai or even going up Harlem Ave to get to the Northwest side. Hence, Sarah definitely understood. One of the problems I had was the amount of runners that had one kid in a big ass stroller, one kid barely keeping up with them while they were walking a huge fucking dog, meanwhile, they could not get across the street. As they all finally got across the street I rolled down my window because it was soooo nice out, and yelled: “Stop multitasking!” I mean geez their multitasking could get their kids ran over if I was not paying attention due to texting or was one of those road rage freaks you always hear about on the evening news.

But this did not happen once but like four, FOUR fuckin times! You could not script this coincidence in a movie the audience would have found it as unfunny as I did with this stupid repeating joke occurring over and over in a five-minute span during the film or Television show. Usually, a 24-minute drive was now an hour long as I was trying to get the village of Shit Park, IL by side streets. After life was done testing my patience I got home showered ate some Cocoa Pebbles cereal (yeah I am an adult!), wrote and caught up on my Netflix then slept. Oak Park, IL is so draining that it wasted my weekend and my free day off, ugh, I really hate this place.

Happy Valentines Day from Oak Park, Il blog

Happy Valentine’s Day from the Oak Park, IL blog! I hope you have a great day with your significant other or others, side chicks, side dudes, whatever…

Already celebrated with my boo boo on the 11th Saturday because as soon as it gets nice out the idiots in Oak Park, IL come out to play, it was nice on Sunday so I do not want to chance dealing with the stupidity of Oak Park, Il today!

I have not seen that many places have a Valentine’s Day special for couples or anything around here and that is why I, thankfully headed out of Oak Park, Il to celebrate. Had a Steak at Long Horn’s steakhouse in Berwyn, IL with a Sweet Baked Potato it was tasty and non-eventful because I went wayyyyyyy early.

Therefore, I came back home in less idiotic traffic! So have a happy day and try to have a nice time i.e.: avoid Oak Park, IL

Valentine’s Day around the corner and there’s nothing to do in Oak Park, Il

Well, since there isn’t anything really about Valentine’s day around Oak Park, IL I looked up the History Channel’s take on the holiday so that hopefully you guys can come up with something for your loved one. You can print up hearts and cut them out, laminate and make decorations that way. Also, you can try P-interest to see if there any self-made decorations or gifts you can make if you are on a budget or just show some effort to the person you are giving the shit too.

Here is the History of Valentine’s Day as presented by the History Channel: http://www.history.com/topics/valentines-day

Happy “National Freedom Day!”

Happy Black History Month! Although that this, is of course, the shortest month of the year (don’t get Ma Pro started) it is a time to celebrate African American culture here in the United States. Today is actually “National Freedom Day” the day that President Lincoln started the process that ended slavery in the United States, later ended by 13th Amendment to the Constitution. Congress created a resolution that made today National Freedom Day in 1947 and President Truman made it law in June of 1948.

Meaning that even though President Lincoln made Slavery illegal it took many years and decades to have this basic tenet that every person is free in our Country to be recognized. Even though there are still tons of racism, being played out everywhere in our country and even in places like Oak Park, IL there is still hope. By recognizing that freedom is for everyone on a day like today we acknowledge that everyone should be treated equal and be given an equal footing until every man, woman, and child is on an equal footing we got a long way to go.

Here are some more sites that gives you more information regarding “National Freedom Day” I hope you enjoy the information, and happy reading!

Happy Holiday! Happy Martin Luther King Jr day!

Happy Holiday! Happy Martin Luther King Jr day!

This is, of course, a great day because most of us have it off, but it’s also a great time to celebrate diversity in our area and our country. Even though places like Oak Park, Il like to say they are diverse and steer most of the minorities in Oak Park, Il to live near the Austin border, we can still keep the dream alive and fight these type of mindsets by keep speaking out and keep fighting against overt and covert racist practices such as the one I have aforementioned.

You do not necessary have to be black to actually reap the benefits from MLK jr’s sacrifice either because of his stance we have better ideas about cultural understanding and intelligence this helps us practically in everyday life, as a people, as a country, a global power and as a single race of humanity. As we become more cultural intertwined we are able to overcome our differences and the ignorance that is out there, this is not some liberal fantasy, or cuck erotic story, just plain common sense.

We are all on this planet together so we might as well get along, and for those who wish to practice overt and covert racism whenever they want, (how do I say this eloquently?) can …. suck a big long one. Enjoy one another and let the old haters sit in their corners and bitch. Remember the man, take a stand, and enjoy your MLK jr. day in the memory of this great man.

Peace and Chicken grease.

Happy Hanukkah Oak Park, IL

Good day to all! Happy Hanukkah!

This Holiday even though it is well known to people of other religions is not really recognized in Oak Park, Il either which pretty much is indicated of Oak Park, IL. So not being Oak Park, IL born and bred, I wanted to throw this shout out to my peeps of the Jewish faith in Oak Park, Il and everywhere else.

Hanukkah again is not a federal holiday in United States however today will be celebrated with traditional songs and Gift-giving as today starts 25th day of the month called Kislev of the Jewish calendar year. I have actually given coworkers at the job who are the Jewish faith dreidels as part of interfaith acknowledgment I will be surprised to see such gestures in Oak Park, Il by any entity that does not have religious affiliation, but again what do you expect living in Oak Park, Il where they are supposedly “diverse”-ha!

Anyway peeps Happy Hanukkah!

Go ahead Oak Park, IL and learn something!

Happy Christmas Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve from Oak Park, Il blog!

One of the things my family use to do on Christmas Eve was that we open at least one gift on Christmas Eve. I mention this because I really can’t have my family come over due to all the land mines my neighbor’s like to have their dogs plant into the snow on the sidewalk.

Now I just have to wait until Christmas day to exchange presents and open them but at least my shoes will be clean! So happy Christmas Eve people!
