Sorry for the lack in posts over the past couple of months. Things have gotten ahead of me, and I’m working towards better time management which includes blog post drafting.
Back in my early senior year of high school four years ago (four years ago? I’m getting oooold!) I was
hanging out with my friend, Carrie, a lot and it was through her I met someone who I’d never realize would be my best friend until the end of time, Alex Robinson. Up until then, I never had a constant best friend. Before high school, my next door neighbor, Marcus, was my best friend, but he transferred middle schools and then we drifted apart so much we don’t even talk anymore. And then in high school, I drifted among friends, and never really had people I hung out with consistently through the years. Read more…
I was thinking to myself and randomly a thought popped in to my head,
“No matter how much you have grown, there is always room to grow.”
I mean this every sense possible. I believe this quote is why we have people who don’t settle with just being the best, or being really good. I don’t know if I read this quote from somewhere and it randomly popped into my head. But I think this is a very important quote to realize. Then I thought of posting quotes that I live by, with small explanations. The quotes I live by are things are usually things that aren’t over used like, “Live everyday as your last.” They don’t hold meaning to me, because I feel like there wasn’t enough thought put in to that phrase. I’ll use another quote that I love:
“Don’t ever let somebody tell you… You can’t do something. Not even me.” – Chris Gardner (played by Will Smith) in Pursuit of Happyness
This quote speaks volumes to me. This quote was used in the movie just after the fact Chris Gardner told his son to stop playing basketball. The movie Pursuit of Happyness is an amazing movie, definitely one of Will Smith’s best movies. This quote has helped me further reach my potential. Everything that has hindered me, from my studdering to my fear of being outgoing on my own. I envision that part of me telling me “Don’t ever let somebody tell you… You can’t do something. Not even me.” It has helped me get through so much, and continues to everyday. I hope this helps you.
What do you think about these quotes? Or if you’ve used them, how have they affected you?
Sorry for now blogging much, I have been quite busy. But now I have a new Zune HD to blog from.
Well I got class soon,
See ya guys!
So as my legs recover from the A) lack of excerise and B) the intense pesudo-free running (don’t know what free running is?) which was more like just straight running, from the game that I played two days ago called Commando.
Commando is a simple game to play, here’s how it works. You need a good number of people to play — say about six people? More people, the better. So the game starts by someone being the Commando. The Commando then chooses a place he/she will stay, and four to five bases that could be anything (hub caps, the second handicap sign, or even zig-zagging through trees). The objective of the game is to go through or tag each base then tag the commando. So I’ll simulate one round so you, the readers, understand how it works.
Every is standing infront of the commando. The Commando closes his/her eyes and starts counting down from a random number. Within this time you’re supposed to tag as many bases as possible then hide. If the Commando didn’t give you a lot of time, then you just go hide, but it is whatever you want.
Then after time is up, the Commando open his/her eyes and looks around to see if they can spot anyone hiding, any one chosen has to start back from the beginning, and re-tag all the bases. Then the Commando closes their eyes and starts counting from another random number.
It is a great excuse to run around like an idiot and this game is best played at night. Well I’m off to further recover. Commando isn’t a game where you get hurt; but it can help keep you in shape.
So as of now I’ve seen the movie twice; and I have been very eager to do this review. If you haven’t seen the trailer for it yet; you live under a rock, but here it is nonetheless:
I’ve heard that the movie sucks; yet others who hail it the best Harry Potter film yet. I taken into account the book, and all points of view for this post. Eager to know what I rated it? Read more…
