1. Addiction and Entitlement are two words that sadly sum up my generation. I don’t mean substance addiction, I mean addiction to materialism, the wrong people, false promises, the grass is greener mentality, laziness, complacency, giving up at the first obstacle, and repeating the same mistakes. Entitlement to all of their dreams being handed to them for doing absolutely nothing to achieve them. I made a song, so I should be a superstar overnight, I got a C in anatomy I should be given a job as a surgeon, I took a cool photo on Instagram so I should be given a photography career. Where did this come from? I have always been taught if you want something the only way to get it is to work your ass off to make it happen. No one hands you anything, no one has a magic wand they wave and it gets you everything you ever wanted. You get to where you want to go by the relentless efforts you put in and the sacrifices you make. That’s it! No secret, no magic potion, no super connected person, it’s hard work. If it were easy everyone would do it, everyone would get it, and it wouldn’t be special, it wouldn’t be passionate, it wouldn’t be glamorous, and it wouldn’t bring the material bullshit most people want it for to begin with. Live your passion and do whatever it is because you truly love it not because you desire fame and fortune, and believe (mistakenly) it’s an easy life. If you do it because you love it the rest will follow. Be addicted to positive forces, changes, influences, and people in your life. This is what makes anything possible. W O R K period. Nothing else nor anyone else will get you there, it’s completely up to you.

  2. In light of the events unfolding in Boston and the identities of those believed responsible emerging, I’m seeing a lot of disgusting remarks/comments.  Lets remember that individuals are responsible for their own actions, and are not reflective of an entire people, culture, or creed.  Racism, religious hatred, and xenophobia only create division and further the perpetrators cause. Our strength is in our ability to unify as human beings.  ”Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”  Thoughts and prayers are with you Boston.

  3. It’s 2013 and we still harbor ideas so extreme that we call love obscene and use religion as a crutch on which we lean to deny equal rights and the American Dream to those who simply found love and wish to share, honor and care for one another, not as a sister or brother, but as man and man or wife and wife, it is their choice, it is their life. So today I hope the Supreme Court will say equality for all includes not just those who are straight but also those who are Gay. No Freedom til we’re equal no how, no way! - Sincerely - Me

  4. "Virtually every success story involves someone or some group working harder than their peers. Bill Gates was addicted to his computer as a child. So was Bill Joy. The Beatles put in thousands of hours of practice in Hamburg. Joe Flom ground away for years, perfecting the art of takeovers, before he got his chance. Working really hard is what successful people do…"

  6. "It happened because it’s #Christmas Eve, I’m telling you! I’m not crazy. It’s Christmas Eve! It’s the one night of the year when we all act a little nicer, we smile a little easier, we cheer a little more. For a couple of hours out of the whole year, we are the people that we always hoped we would be!

    It’s a miracle. It’s really a sort of a miracle because it happens every Christmas Eve. And if you waste that miracle, you’re gonna burn for it. I know what I’m talking about. You have to do something. You have to take a chance, you do have to get involved. There are people having trouble trying to make their miracle happen. There are people that don’t have enough to eat and people that are cold. You can go out and say hello to these people. Take an old blanket out of the closet, you can make them a sandwich and tell them, “Oh by the way, here.”

    I get it now. And if you give, then it can happen, then the miracle can happen to you. Not just the poor and hungry, it’s just, everybody’s gotta have this miracle! It can happen tonight for you all! If you believe in this pure thing, the miracle will happen and you’ll want it again tomorrow! You won’t believe the bastards who say, “Christmas is once a year and it’s a fraud.” It’s not! It can happen every day! You’ve just got to want that feeling! And if you like it and you want it, you’ll get greedy for it. You’ll want it every day of your life! And it can happen to you! I believe in it now. I believe it’s gonna happen to me, now. I’m ready for it! And it’s great. It’s a good feeling. It’s really better than I’ve felt in a long time. I’m ready.

    Have a Merry Christmas, everybody.”

  8. We are all of the same party; Humanity and we are all of the same race; The Human race. Some very important things happened last night to prove just that. Congrats to Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington on Marriage Equality. And to the first openly Gay Senator Elect Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin! United We Stand, Divided We Fall and only TOGETHER is Another World Possible. Proud to be a Human in America.

  9. I’m giving everyone fair warning. Mr. Christmas is emerging so as we approach Thanksgiving expect things to intensify. Absolutely my favorite time of year! People smile a little easier and are a bit more generous. Make this Holiday season one you remember not because of something you received but of something you gave. Thanksgiving and Christmas Meals can be provided to the homeless for $2.09 a person through the Los Angeles Mission or text Red Cross to 90999 to donate $10 to Hurricane Sandy victims. Whatever you choose, or however much you can give (money, time or donations), something is always better than nothing. Tis the Season!
