How am I doing on my Goals?

So back in January, I wrote out my 7 goals for the year. It's been two months, so let's see how I'm doing :

1. Become FULLY polyphasic

I'm close on this one. Many days I go perfectly, sometimes if I have nothing to do I oversleep and then skip some naps during the day. I'm actually pretty satisfied with that, as I'm only sleeping 2.5-4.5 hours per night, I'm never tired, and can always count on being awake early and staying up late. I'll keep pressing to be more consistent, but I'm satisfied with where I am.

Kendrick Lamar and His Verse

On Imported Blog

I'm usually homeboys with the same niggas I'm rhymin' with But this is hip-hop and them niggas should know what time it is And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you niggas

Kendrick Lamar has made the Internet go abuzz after releasing this verse on Big Sean's "Control." Ever since publicly calling out all these rappers, hip-hop has been reenergized. It's only been a few days, but it's already solicited responses rappers like Lupe Fiasco, B.o.B., and even Iman Shumpert (yes, New York Knicks basketball player).

I love the fact that Kendrick Lamar did this. I have been growing appreciation for him the past few years, and this verse that he just dropped sky sped up that process. Now personally, I don't think he's necessarily dissing the other rappers he mentioned and badmouthing their raps. Especially due to the fact that Big Sean and Jay Electronica were on the very same track, and he has had collaborations with others (like "Fucking Problems" with A$AP Rocky). I mean, it is ironic that all the rap responses he has received are by rappers he did not mention.
