I have been an adult all my life. I have taken care of myself and struggled through everyday problems. I juggled work, school and have had to provide for myself. I have carried the emotional burdens of my family and the economic responsibilities of my grandmother and my mother. This is an aspect of me is unknown to many people. Most people see the fun loving, silly Anthony. That is another part of me. Some have come to know a combination of the two. I believe I should tell you who the real Anthony is.
I am a person who lives life to the fullest. I have done things in my life that most teenagers cannot say they have. I have received a scholarship to attend college courses with a John Hopkins Program at the age of 16. I have worked four different jobs and each job has brought new experiences. An example of this is the department store Haggar. I had the opportunity to become a manager but I chose to focus on school instead. In grade school my grades were impeccable. This changed in high school dramatically. I did not feel like pursuing school. High school was a step on the ladder of life that I wanted to skip. I felt like this for most of my high school years. My desire for change, personal growth and giving to my city has steered me in the new direction of political activism and community service.
During the spring of 2003 three students and I were fed up with the condition of our building. This is when my view on high school changed. The students and I planned and lead a walk out of the student body to protest these conditions. As a leader of the walkout, I gave three speeches to boost morale among the students. I have never received a greater rush than when I saw the passion come over the students from my words. It was at this exact moment that I had the realization; I wanted to go into a life of politics.
Since that day I have wanted to change the way of life for the citizens of Newark. I want to be apart of the guiding force to propel the city of Newark into an era of greatness. I have led my life making good and bad choices. Attending Rutgers is making one step in the right direction. Rutgers has the atmosphere and high quality of education that would be beneficial to my higher learning and my future endeavors.

So I didn’t want to do anything for my bday I just wanted to stay in and sleep but of course my life doesn’t work that way. So Ryan and Tahri decide to show up and take me out to Fridays to eat drink what have you. So after 4 winter lagers I’m pretty drunk and Carlos and Shaun show up and say lets go to the Go Go.
At the Go Go we have this intense drunken scandalous evening such a good time. The dancer name Rosa who turn out to be a grandmother who was fuckin touchin my man tits and jerkin me off as im slapping her ass and shes telling me how big her pussy lips and I lick her face I became the epitome of scummiest. It was great. At the height of the nastiness and raunchiness we decide to leave being for monetary reasons.
As were driving around we see a car and abe has the brilliant idea of fucking the car up. So we leave and go to a bar. Abe comes running back saying people were there so he cudnt do it. Meanwhile in the bar Abe gets 151 and goldslagher . We find out he has a bottle of absinthe and we all take shots. Abe gos back for round 2 takes hes shoe off and starts scuffin the shit out of the car window trying to break it. Doesn’t work at alllll. My friend tells me all she heard was laughing hahaha then DRIVE DRIVE DRIVE ..The next day we found out wasn’t the persons car we thought it was.
