Labor Day

Today is Labor Day. For those that wish they were at work instead of being off you can ignore this post. Otherwise, read on for further enlightenment.

There's 168 hours in a week. If you sleep 8 hours per night then there are 112 waking hours in a week. Subtract the number of hours you dedicate to your job and commute. How many hours is left?

In my case that's 57 hours. Depending on how you look at it, it's either a lot or a little.

They say it takes 10,000 hours to master something. If that's true then maybe it's a good idea to find something enjoyable, become an expert at it, and then get paid for it.

Chances are you are already an expert at something but it's not the kind of expertise that people would buy or pay for in particular. Maybe your strengths are in music, painting or the arts.

Perhaps you've already created a masterpiece that world hasn't appreciated it yet. Many prominent artists have died before their creative works became famous and appreciated. You won't be the first nor the last.

So how do you get to do what you love and get paid for it? Break it down into simple parts. Create more volume but be original and tell everyone that shares your interests about it.

Chances are if you appreciate your own work there will be others like you that appreciate your creative work too. The key is to create for that person in mirror, price it according to what you would pay for it, and then tell everyone you think would be interested.

As you can tell I'm writing this post for myself but hopefully others will find this useful too. If you did please show your appreciation by thanking me in the comments below. Happy Labor Day everyone!

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 told my mom, my aunt, my dad and basically everyone on my social media. 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…
