Wise Words

28 Jan

Stumbled across this website.  Simple but cute.  http://rulesformyunbornson.tumblr.com

A few of my favorite wise words:
#390: “Eat lunch with the new kid.”
#400: “In pickup hoops, let someone else call the fouls.”
#406: “If you can touch it, you can catch it.”
#414: “Try writing your own eulogy. Never stop revising.”

Quote of the Day

17 Sep

“Some people do not have to search, for they find their niche early in life and rest there seemingly contented and resigned. At times, I envy them but usually I do not understand them… And seldom do they understand me. I am one of those searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we completely content. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach; we are drawn to the ocean, taken by its power and unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests, mountains, deserts, hidden rivers, and lovely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as our laughter. We are ambitious only for life itself and for anything beautiful it can provide. Most of all, we want to love and be loved, to live in a relationship that will not impede our wanderings and prevent our search. We do not want to prove ourselves to others or compete for love. This passage is for wanderers, dreamers, and lovers who dare to ask of life everything which is good and beautiful.”

*Whoever wrote this is amazing. The legend is that some man was on a hike and discovered this message carved in the door of an abandoned shack. He had no paper or pencil so he had to memorize the whole thing. When he made it back home he told others of this message and people went to find the carved door but no one else ever could. No one knows who wrote it.

The Magic Bullet

31 Aug

Quick fix weight loss is a huge industry. A clunky revolutionary shoe that helps you burn calories and tone your legs without actually exercising. A 5-minute toning workout that you can do while sleeping and wake up with a six-pack. A pill you take to lose 10 pounds after consuming 5,000 calories in one sitting. Interested? Fine, I exaggerated the last two examples but hopefully, they help to make my point.

We’re all looking for that “magic bullet” but whatever happened to good ol’ fashion diet and exercise?  That’s why I appreciate this ad from Nike.

The Last Exorcism on Chatroulette

20 Aug

I’ve seen quite a few brands try to promote themselves on Chatroulette but none have encountered a great deal of success. However, this promotion for The Last Exorcism movie is genius and the reactions are hilarious.

I’d rather be…

6 Aug

It’s unbearably hot outside – 106 sweltering degrees to be specific.  I’d rather be:


Drinking this…

And wearing this… (Who’s that in the picture, you ask? Err, that’s me. Don’t ask questions!)

It paints a cooler picture, don’t you think?


4 Aug

It’s all a hoax. Sharks are the “big teddy bears” of the ocean and they just want to be friends. Don’t you just want to cuddle up with this guy?

How Will You Measure Your Life?

28 Jul

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there” – Lewis Carroll

I read an article today – How Will You Measure Your Life by Clayton M. Christensen.  I’ve always been a huge proponent of truly knowing yourself and defining your goals in life (as cheesy as it may be) so thought the article was worth sharing.
