Parallel Lives

"Jamal and I seem to lead Parallel Lives. I feel like Damian may have had me in mind when he wrote this script. Growing up in the Bronx in a single parent household can be tough for any child, but like Jamal I was always surrounded by great people and have been blessed to have friends that I truly consider to be family. Jamal had Trevor and whenever adversity surfaced they picked each other up and kind of figured life out together, becoming strong men. When I think about this situation, one of my best friends Enrique "Reeks" comes to mind . We where born two days apart, attended the same High School and college and I confess that we've experienced some of the best and worst moments together. In middle School I had my first crush. (I will call her Jessica) It was definitley a heavy and sad case of puppy love. I can remember being so scared to even say hi sometimes. Jessica and I where in the same class and I knew that she liked me but I also knew that she liked another boy. It was a tough situation for me because at that age I was more of an introvert, the sparks never flew (well maybe for a date or two) but we are still friends today and in my mind some parts of me still fights the attraction, but we are definitley friends and Jess is happily in a relationship (with the same dude...) How fun is life !?! Jamal, shares a similar circumstance with Trevor and Olivia in Twin Towers. Come and see how his situation pans out June 12th..."
