I attract drama like mad.
So I went out for my mom who wanted a burger. She was about to go out, at 10:30pm. I forbid it for her safety, this is Brooklyn after all.
I am waiting for the burger when a shady guy walks in asking for a breast of chicken. The cashier says $1.50. The guy only had a dollar. He said, come on man it's Thanksgiving. I don't have the .50. The cashier was intent and said no chicken then.
They were arguing back and forth when I stepped in saying, I got the 50 cent. Dude said thanks, then said he will stop coming there. Then said, as a matter of fact, I'll start robbing the place.
When that happened, I said OMG why is this happening right in front of me? Was I destined for this? Is it a coincidence? Synchronicity? WHAT!
As I'm about to pay for my order, the guy is still in the store. So I'm thinking if I pull out these bills, I'm gonna be robbed. Thankfully, he left and I jetted for home.
First of all, it is Thanksgiving time. Would you REALLY risk a confrontation that could potentially get someone killed for .50?!??

I am not a fan of rap. So I never heard this song, wasn't familiar with the title until what I'm about to type.
I am not sure if I had a dream or not, but I remember waking up singing this song and I seemed to know who it was from. Like I mentioned, never heard it before. Don't like rap or Tupac, yet I suddenly knew the song.
I'll leave it at that. I should mention it happened with Aaliyah too, after her death but I don't remember the song. Let me also say this: they were both from Brooklyn, NY if I'm not mistaken, as was Biggie Smalls. Though I had no dreams or songs of his in my head.
Was this Tupac's way of letting me know the world will never forget his name? If someone really connected to the spirit world would like to comment on this, I'd really like to know. This was one of my first psychic experiences.
Before I even knew the term empath or knew much of what I know now, this happened to me. I was 13..
Edit: He was from Harlem, NY.
Aaliyah and Biggie are Brooklyn born, but Tupac is a NYer nonetheless.

So before I found out I was an empath, I used to think I was a Whitelighter. Any Charmed fan would know this term. It's basically a guardian angel for witches and future guardian angels.
Anyway, I often sought out lonely souls, not knowing why I sought them out(the empath side of me) and when I did, I would try my hardest to befriend them in some way.
I met this one guy named Brian. He would always sit in the lounge area by himself and for some reason, he stood out to me. He was kinda lonely.
Turns out, I scared him off. Yeah, I have a tendency to come on a little strong at first, if I don't completely ignore you unintentionally. I'm awkward as hell. But moving on, I asked for his AIM sn the day I introduced myself to him. I wasn't thinking at the time that that was a really weird thing to do. I just wanted to reach out in some way.
He gave me his name and sn, but he never signed on. Next time I saw him he did the old "cover face with palm and pretend you don't see him" trick. It was laughable because it was so obvious.
Anyway, ever since that day, I haven't seen him until today.....2 years later. Here I think that every familiar face I've ever seen would be gone after my year long hiatus, but I'm seeing some faces. Goes to show many people don't finish school in two years' time like myself.
When I saw him today, his image screamed of a homeless person. He was disheveled, and troubled. Even how he was eating his breakfast. I dunno quite how to explain it.
But to see what I saw today makes me sad. Not saying that seeing this is any indication that he's homeless, but he's even still wearing the same coat I saw him in last time, which looks horribly filthy. Hell, I'm still wearing the same coat I wore last time. It needs dry cleaning.
I'm just grasping at straws. I hope he's okay. I won't approach him whether he remembers me or not. I've learned a lot here and not giving into the urge to help others all the time is one of the first things I learned.
By the by, weird thing happened today. I thought why not combine it into one blog: I read a link that someone posted about 11:11 being angels telling you to look up. That's been on my mind lately. In that link, one of the times was 2:22. Intervals of 11. I happened to look up when I was painting today and when I did, something that appeared to be a gnat flew in my face, so I shooed it away.
However, part of me doesn't think it was a gnat because I didn't see a bug, I saw a black image. A dot, really. Now the real trippy thing about it is, at that time, it was 2:22...I'm thinking an angel revealed itself to me for that fraction of a second. But I could be wrong and it could in fact just be a gnat that happened to fly in my face at 2:22.
That stood out to me today. Also, I forgot to mention, today I DVR'd The Talk. On today's episode, they were discussing whether angels exist or not. So the circumstances are screaming at me today. I will watch the episode later.

I feel that this is true, because I sense emotions and intentions from fictional characters more than I identify with real people. But I guess some of everything in this list is true of me because I have my days when I experience a lot and other days when I experience nothing.

I was about to head into Dunkin Donuts when I saw a father leave his two small children outside while he went in to buy them a donut.
As I was heading toward the door, the small son started to cry. As I watched him crying, my eyes started welling up. Then on my way to the line, a burst of anger overcame me directed at the father for leaving his kids outside like a dog tied up to a parking meter.
I'd have to say that was a first for me, that I can recall. Usually, seeing something like that would sadden me, but not make me cry.
There were plenty of seats in DD. He could have told them to have a seat instead of exposing them to the dangers of nighttime Brooklyn, NYC.

So for years I have always encountered individuals who I didn't like from the moment I met them. I simply thought it was me not liking their character, even though I basically knew zip about them.
Thanks to Wolf, I was told I'm a time traveler.-I KNOW!-I move forward in time, examine these individuals, accept that knowledge I gained which prevents my present day self from liking certain people.
Now, let's put this to the test. My sister's ex boyfriend, I met him in November of 2007. Didn't know zip about him other than I hated his guts. This summer, after 3 years together, he was told to get out of my sister's home. To pay her back, he destroyed her entire wardrobe by bleaching it, can't forget he also cut the cords to various electronics in her home including the tv and cable.
Did I mention he also has a criminal record? Yeah. I totally scoped out his character which told me the person he was hence my not liking him.
A guy hired to do work in my home I had the same feeling about. I felt threatened by him and didn't like him. I found out he was snooping around in my kitchen as well as the bedroom of my neighbor.
So, in conclusion, this nifty ability I have that I didn't know I had protects me from befriending total douchebags. Now that I know, I will never doubt myself when I get that instinct of dislike.
Before knowing what I was, I've fallen for far too many people's sob stories which allowed me to get hurt.
Wolf has been a godsend. I dunno what I would have done without him.

So my Cali cousin recently got married and there was this big assumption on her part that all the family would attend her "grand" event. I knew from the start that I could not attend.
A) I'm broke, and B) I have school, so I couldn't fly out, then back, get in late all to sleep for a couple hours to get ready for school. No.
When I got her invite I Facebooked her and told her I got it but I couldn't attend. She didn't bother replying. Also, I posted a video to her profile for her special occasion, as soon as she got back from her honeymoon I notice it was deleted.
Can't forget to mention that I sense annoyance from her directed at me. I'm an empath right? So I gotta learn to trust my "feelings" and senses, well this is what I've been sensing ever since I told her I wasn't going.
To add my two cents, I wasn't personally invited. The whole family, including us cousins are on Facebook and all have one another added. I saw her mention this wedding of hers to all of them except me, so naturally I took that as a "I'm not close to you, so you don't have to talk to me about it. "
That was one of my reasons for not going. Anyway, she's a married woman now. Happy for her, let's move on. I personally was sick and tired of hearing about her wedding. I know it sounds mean, but I'm being honest.
I was asked about this wedding at least 10 times from another cousin. The cousin in question's best friend. I wanted to snap at her so many times, but being me I had to hold myself back.
People are too damned hard of hearing. What part of "No, I am not going to her wedding." don't you get?

A 2010 project of mine which celebrated the rebirth and quick downfall of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series re-airing on ABC earlier this year.
My next project entitled: Project Samurai will kick off early 2011.
