happy birthday, jamari fox (now what have you learned?)

another birthday; a new fox.
this last year was pretty intense,
but it ended pretty solid.
besides that food poisoning stint earlier this week.
i was sitting here,
listening to some jazz,
while thinking about everything i’ve learned,
either good or bad.
this is a list

when something ends in my life,
it ended for a reason.
stop asking questions or getting depressed over it

– i’ve seen karma hit those who did me wrong faster than usual

– my psychic abilities have been stronger than usual too.
i’m really connected to The Universe on some higher level shit

– i need a new macbook.
my mac is getting slower than usual.
i can’t afford a new one right now

– i can’t do anything,
be anyone,
love another,
if i don’t love myself first.
insecurities be really fuckin me up out here

– i have really amazing friends in my life.
i can count them on more than one hand

– the best response to a shady muthafucka is a kind one.
my energy doesn’t align with mess

– being a perfectionist and trying to be in control has to end in my life

– some white people are really triflin’ in the workplace.
this is not to say black folks aren’t a mess,
but white folks in corporate play another set of games if they don’t like you.
i’m tired of working with them

– i’m not good in groups.
i’ll forever be “the outcast”.
i’m okay with that.

– i discovered oat milk and i LOVE it
vanilla flavor tho

– i kinda took it hard when trey songz had a baby.
in my mind,
he would be childless for a longer time.
in my mind,
he would fuck me into another dimension.


– i’ve wanted love more than ever this year.
i don’t think anyone would actually love me.
i’m not like the typical “gay” who gets into a relationship quick

– i do want to get fucked and GOOD tho.
i’ve been more horny than i’ve ever been this year too

– i think i met a “work wolf 2”,
but i’m not going down that path unless i’m totally sure.
i barely got over the original “work wolf 1”

– i still don’t believe i’m attractive.
as much as folks tell me,
i feel ugly and my flaws stick out more.
that may never change

– success is right around the corner for me.
i feel i’d be more successful than being in a relationship

– it’s funny the celebs i’ve recently met,
spoken to,
joked with,
and they don’t realize they’ve been talking to the owner of this platform.
most of them i’ve written about.
nothing slanderous.

i wonder if they’d like me if they knew it was me tho?

– i found a facial regiment that works for me.
i went back to the basics.
hoping around from product to product tore my skin up.
im gonna stick with what works and incorporate little changes here and there


…and that’s it.
i’m sure there’s more,
but those are the ones that came to me first.
i don’t know what this new year will bring,
but i’m excited for new adventures and a brand new era.

Happy birthday to all the other Cancer folks

let this be our year to get out of these shells!

  1. Happy Birthday J! Wishing you all the best for this coming year ! Fellow Cancer here also my birthday was on the 1st πŸ˜€πŸŽ‚πŸŽπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽπŸŽ‚πŸ˜€

    1. Happy Birthday bro bro! I knew you were a kindred Cancer. Only we could be so expressive and self aware. Many blessings in the year to come.

      1. ^thank you JAY!!!
        cancers are definitely on another level of knowing self and others!
        sometimes we need to believe those hunches we get.
        they are often right!!

  2. Happy birthday Jamari! I truly hope you find love within yourself and that will manifest into everything else concerning you. I’m glad you have a support team around because that’s one of life’s greatest gifts. I wish you nothing but love success and happiness. I love this blog because it gives me the chance to interact with other gay men in a way where we can be vulnerable and truthful without all the bullshit we face in reality. Thank you for this space!

  3. Happy birthday, Jamari Fox, and have a wonderful day and year ahead. Also, thank you for this website. It’s a daily essential read!

  4. Happy Birthday Jamari!! Enjoy your day!! Enjoy life, because you got this!!! Get some sex and have some cake!! Lol πŸ˜‚

  5. It’s your birthday , so you know what that means …BIRTHDAY SEX jk πŸ˜‚.

    Have an amazing birthday πŸŽ‚ “It is not happy people who are thankful,it is thankful/grateful people who are happy.”Despite all the trials and tribulations we all go through you we must never forget the many things we have to be thankful for.❀

    1. ^i wish it was some birthday sex round here!

      but thank you for the wishes and this wonderful quote yc!
      i appreciate your voice within the foxhole!!

  6. Happy birthday. The line about being an outcast got to me. I also don’t work well in groups. Also, the one about things ending for a reason and not getting depressed about it. I also need to accept that. I also understand having insecurities, as I am quiet, shy, anxious and uncomfortable with my weight. You can do this. I can do this. Never forget to persevere forward.

    1. ^dkrom,
      i love this.
      i’m glad you were able to take something from my lessons for the past year.
      i hope we can achieve everything we desire and move past the monsters in our own heads.
      thank you for the well wishes!

  19. “The best response to a shady muthafucka is kind one” That part!!!!!!!!! Gotta remember this, because I’m an extremely sensitive Cancer who gets in my feelings alot about what people say about me. Gonna work on the get over it

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
