Nashville, Tennessee, Feb. 2012, 3:45 freakin' a.m.~
Know I should be asleep, but can't sleep tonight. Too keyed up about things (or maybe God decided it was time for me to get up, so I could spend some time in prayer). Anyway, it's too freakin' early; I should be asleep!
It's your favorite break dancin' whiz, Gabrielo Bustamente. I am still breakin' whenever I get the chance, but I also find other things to do, too. Like church, for example. Church is a big part of my life. Later this morning we will be passing out food and prayer for the needy people of our fair city. I always enjoy doing this; it shows me just how blessed I truly am. I may not be rich, but compared to a lot of people, I have so much to be grateful for!
I owe it all to the Big Man Upstairs: my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! :)
Hard to beleive that I have been a Christian for three years now. And hard to believe that it's been about eight months since I had my knee opeated on. It was killer to spend six weeks in a walking brace; the itching was so intense I thought I was gonna go MAD!! It was horrible!!
I'm so glad I had God on my side during that ordeal! I don't want to have any more surgery for a while!! If there is one thing I hate, it's being tied down or not being able to do the things I love: like dancing, for one! When I dance, I'm in The Zone and dancing is when I'm happiest!
I love showing those stupid naysayers who think I can't do a durn thing 'cause I'm on crutches and can't walk well. If Lazylegs (Luca Patuelli) can do it, then by gaw, so can I, Gabrielo Edgar Bustamente!!
I even have a dance name: "Bust-A-Move", which also happens to be my nickname. It's what everybody calls me, which is fine with me! :)
The weather here is mild, but not too bad. I hope the cold stuff is out of the way for good: I am more than ready for spring! It's so hard for me to get around on ice or in snow when I'm on my sticks: big risk of me fallin' and bustin' my azz! Don't need any broken bones: I already break dance; don't need to add broken bones to my repertoire! LOL
School is going well: at least I brought up my grades in English and Math. Math has always been my stickin' point and English, there's just so many darned rules! It's easier if I just spoke Spanish, but people, they frown on that, so I speak Espanol at home (mi casa) and English when out in public (like at school).
I speak Spanish and English fluently. It's what I grew up with. To me, speaking both is as natural as breathing ... or me dancing! :)
Well, I'm gonna try to scare up something to eat and then wait for Mami and Papi to get up; they're the ones who will take me to the church, so we can help out. I love doing these community outreaches every month! Nothing like showin' the love of Christ on a Saturday morning! :)
I'm outta here; take care! May God bless you today and always!
Your riend, Gabrielo. :)
