Somebody just sent me this 2009 pic of me .. I was legit eating $1 mc doubles for lunch and dinner.. No sides..just water! I could only afford to pay my rent and most of my utilities but I had no hot water/gas (no heat/air conditioner) .. Couldn’t afford to make music or keep my hair cut so I wore it a little curly! I remember I went home to Chicago and told my mother.. Broke down in tears because I really felt like giving up and my mom had too much on her plate to help.. But she found a way! God made a way! I stuck in there and pushed through! One of the worst years of my life .. But through it all I kept pushing and striving.. Many memories but I realized this was the time in my life where I accepted the strength God gave me!
