Favorite place


(This is not a bathroom, just thought it was a dope looking bathroom)

via Photo Challenge: Favorite Place

Whatever I do, it’s in my favorite place and that’s cool because it’s my space. My favorite place for some strange reasoning is my apartment bathroom. It’s my place of peace. It’s a place where I can go and be me. It’s a place that’s quiet, not chaotic. I can read, I can hear myself think. I can strategize and plan my day from most to least important things. My secret place is so quiet I can actually hear myself sneeze and my echo will tell me bless you. After a long day at work I return home and go into my favorite place and regather myself (pause, double pause, I just reread what I wrote and see how that can be taken in a twisted way). My favorite place is weird but it’s a place that I can go into and have alone time because it’s my space. I can focus and do everything that I am not able to do when I am at work. I can binge watch YouTube clips all day long. I can come up with ideas of what I want to write about. Or I can go to my favorite place and escape the ups and downs of this world and jam to some tunes 🎼🎵🎶. Or I can go into my favourite place and shower sing like a Grammy award winning singer. Whatever I do, its in my favorite place and that’s cool because it’s my space.

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
