Kids vs Adults

Mark Cuban gave great advice on Twitter. He tweeted something a long the lines of "in order to be great you have to be great at something. So what are you great at?" So what are you great at? What an interesting question. When you're a kid it's so hard to tell what you're great at because you aren't supposed to have experienced life yet. Funny though when I was a kid people would ask me what I like to do and of course as a kid I liked to eat candy and play video games. When I was a kid other kids would gravitate towards me. I had no special talents or anything. I wasn't the popular kid in fact I was the class clown in 7th grade because I was a nerdy looking kid who wore thick glasses and needed to be liked. Fortunately, because of sports and my above average athletic ability, that phase was over quick. I threw the ball hard and ran like the wind. I tried out for team and other kids were impressed with me, however, when it came to coaches and authority, they always seemed to doubt me and I never started a game. One Saturday morning, I got dressed up and went to the ball park for a Little League game. I remember crying because I never got to play. In retrospect that coach was an ass. We were in junior high. Every kid shouldve played no matter what.

University of Cincinnati Master of Science Degree Diploma

It's official! Today, I received my diploma from the University of Cincinnati. I can't express how happy and proud I am of my Master of Science degree.

I even tweeted my diploma photo to Santa Ono, the President of the University of Cincinnati, and even got a congratulatory reply from him and the official UC Twitter account. So it's been an awesome Saturday.

Here is a pic of my University of Cincinnati diploma.



Holiday Tradition

The holidays are just around the corner. It's the best time of the year for sure. But the holidays can go by really quickly. I mean, it's going to be Halloween on Monday already! Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be here and we'll all be eating Turkey with our families. Then just like that we'll be opening up presents on Christmas and ringing in 2017 on New Year's.

Some families have holiday traditions. I want to start a holiday tradition where we help out the less fortunate. Everyday is a struggle for each one of us but at least we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads. There are just way too many people on the streets hungry and freezing. We shouldn't let this go on. Not on our watch.

With the power of the internet we can achieve so much in so little time. We can use this power to help others. We don't even have to spend our own money. Did you know that there are free donation sites out there right now that you can visit everyday and donate for fr…
