The Truth Is …

Jose Vilson Jose 5 Comments

Yes, I popularized this meme. Don’t let any other blogger tell you differently.

The truth is … I don’t care who’s reading this.

The truth is … I’m cheering for Kobe Bryant and the Lakers in the Finals.

The truth is … we now know why Kobe is the MVP.

The truth is … stats don’t tell the whole story.

The truth is … I’m a Knicks fans just waiting for someone to burn Madison Square Garden down.

The truth is … I’m a Giants fan who likes the Eagles, mainly because of Donovan McNabb.

The truth is … I’m not at all worried about the prospects of the New York Yankees not making it to the playoffs. If this is a rebuilding year, then let it be.

The truth is … I can’t stand Red Sox fans as fans, not as people. Same goes for most New England sports.

The truth is … I don’t think anyone can understand the deep affection I have for some of my friends without it being confused for something else.

The truth is … I’ve concentrated my passions and worries for the most essential things and people in my life.

The truth is … I finally let go of most of my family grudges.

The truth is … I’m not impressed more or less by them girls in the TV or magazines, word to Musiq Soulchild.

The truth is … I think the majority of edubloggers are soft.

The truth is … I’ve lost affection for getting my picture taken too much. Flashing lights are blinding in other ways, too.

The truth is … I’ve been waiting for Busta Rhymes to come with something serious for a while now, and he did that and then some.

The truth is … I’ve wanted to write a sexual post a few days ago, but this is just not the forum. MySpace, however, is a whole ‘nother story …

The truth is … I don’t watch too much TV outside of SportsCenter, NY1 News, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, and Spongebob Squarepants.

The truth is … I’ve lost my patience with not only some students but also some fellow teachers, and that’s how I know I’m ready for next year.

The truth is … with all the convincing arguments to the contrary, I still don’t support any of the major US presidential candidates, and when people try to talk about this political system like it’s completely fair and balanced, it makes me sick to my stomach, literally.

The truth is … after the assassination comment H-Rod made, out of the major 3 candidates, I’d have to vote for Obama.

The truth is … I want to be Dr. Vilson before 40. No, really. And yes, in education.

The truth is … I have an Iron Man wallpaper on my school-lent laptop.

The truth is … my emotional intelligence is pretty high.

The truth is … I did come from the NYC Teaching Fellows program and I’m proud that I did.

The truth is … I love this meme.

jose, who won’t end with any Tom Cruise quotes, honest.

    According to my transcript, I should be Dr. Rosen by the time I am 47. Yeesh. At this point in time I’m looking forward to having a home by the time I am 40…but that is another story ;)
