"Just gotta find a way to say no"

I've been a Rhymesayers listener for awhile but haven't heard of this guy.
(via Rhymesayers)
"Raised in a Buddhist household, immersing himself in Black history, world culture, and community work, Toki Wright's awareness of the diverse world we live in is translated through his content driven music. He has taken paths that run the gamut from a non-profit youth organization in North Minneapolis to work with war-affected children in Northern Uganda."

Toki Wright recently wrote of the leaked track "State of Emergency": 'Never before has this generation been at more of a critical point than now... the present day. War and Peace. Poverty and Gluttony. Enslavement and Freedom. Each measure of the spectrum entangled in the ultimate fight for power. Obtaining justice and equality are no easy tasks, our forefathers and mothers have proven this to be true. May this surge of energy be the catalyst for global understanding. In our struggle let us not forget the trials and tribulations of the great many who have walked along the hazardous path. Recognize history. Prepare yourself for the future. We are in a STATE OF EMERGENCY!' "
Catching the flu means I've been home for the past week. Not a good thing when I'm in post-sec, but oh well. Gotta catch up on:
- Spanish quiz, notes
- History notes, Confucianism essay research
- (Missed!!!) Math midterm, notes, probability quiz(?)
- Business notes, project
- Early applications for UBC and wherever else (UVIC, Dalhousie, U of C...?)
AHH. At this rate I'm gonna prolong my sickness. My doctor also told me the reasons behind my migraines (they only happen in one part of my head). Besides light and sometimes stress, part of it is caused by having too much, or suddenly less, coffee and chocolate - my two weaknesses. My immune system sucks which, on top of my anemia, probably explains why I get so tired so quickly. Must start taking care of myself!!!
