Ever miss a day of class and feel like you’ve missed a whole course worth of work?

That’s how I feel everyday I run into an obstacle I know my father would of prepared me for.

Missing a math class when learning a new formula is like you getting a turnover in a game of ball because you weren’t actually where your partner projected you to be.

I’ve had a ton of turnovers in this lifetime, you know that frustration of having to hustle back down court in hopes to stop the play you just threw away? Yea I’m constantly hustling down the court to figure out what wise words he would have flooded my brain with all these years, that memory folder empty.

If you’re anything like me, you never really read them homework assignments for English. I hated reading, especially when it wasn’t something I could relate to

Sitting in class pretending to have a headache so you wouldn’t have to participate, at least until your classmates have given enough of last nights homework to struggling chime in, you know that participation count for damn near half your grade.

I wish I could have had those informative lessons from my Father, I can’t participate with peers who confidently recite the wisdom their fathers passed down to them, I’m just left to my imagination.

I’m apart of him right? Maybe I can teach myself, maybe I know what he would of taught me, we are one right? So some of my thoughts mirror his right?

Yeah right, that’s just as unorganized as my attempts to participate on readings I didn’t complete.

But don’t get it confused, it worked for me most times, when you’re used to putting the pieces together yourself, you benefit from little to no information and the five minute skim you done on your way to class.

I’ve been able to finesse myself into being prepared by observing, paying close attention and learning from my own mistakes. My father is actually within me, although not here physically, I piece together those feelings and what ifs and make it happen, I know he proud of me !
