Say Something I am Giving Up on You by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera- Song collection

Have you heard the song "Say Something I am Giving Up on You" by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera? If you haven't then you are missing out. Their voices are lovely and blend in well and the music video is also really thought provoking.

Finding Healing through Healing others

You might think that you have had it worse. That's until you hear of other people's pain. A part of being generous is lending your ears to listen to the problems of those around you. Open your ears and take your eyes off your pain, for you will be surprised that you can find your healing on the road to helping others heal.

The Cycle of Life

Life is a cycle. The things you do today build up your future. The time you have is not a guarantee. Use it wisely to make life better for yourself and others.

Expanding Your Career Options

You don't have to do one single thing your whole life. You might have gone to college for one thing and you might end up doing another. So while in college enjoy what you study but also be realistic with exploring your options for the future.

Hoping for the Best

I hope they find the Malaysian plane. It's so sad imagining what might have happened. All there is left is hope and the will to make sure that it doesn't happen again.

Valuing the Present

Treasure who you are and what you have. Don't wait to lose it before you appreciate it. Learn to value what you have and share it.

Time Flies By

Time flies by. The places and people that were new become old. Then you walk away and when you come back it's all new again or old. Cherish each day and person because you never know if you can revisit it again.

The Importance of Focus

You sometimes are given what you need to know for the time being. Knowing everything at once is not the solution for everything. Learn to focus a step at a time on the task at hand.

Communication and Couples

As I was going through Ebony magazine today something caught my eyes. It was one of the things that a featured couple said. They said that one of the most important or biggest communication classes is marriage. I laughed because I wouldn't doubt that for a fact. I think any relationship that requires vulnerability and trust needs some hardcore communication. So the best place to start learning those skills is with your loved ones.

NCAA and March Madness- University of Michigan vs Wofford

I am a big basketball fan but only for my school. I don't follow the NBA unless my friends force me to. And, my school is in the NCAA. This Thursday the University of Michigan and Wofford will be playing in Milwaukee. I really need my team to win. I want them to although I have some ties to both teams. Hahhaha. So guess which team is mine...just put your answer in the comment box.

Get your Health Insurance

If you live in America and are uninsured and about to go to grad school then you better get insured. It's going to be hard to find coverage after March 31st. If you are 26 or under or over and rich then you are fine. Just make sure you got your coverage. Don't wait to learn the hard away. It's nothing political. You simply will need health insurance paper work even if you are earning a little. Let me know if you all have any other thoughts. The enrollment deadline is March 31st. Inform yourself.

Thoughts on Respect

What you don't know you won't value,

What you don't work for, you won't value,

What you don't know you won't respect.

Feeding your Memory with the Right Stuff

Memory is amazing. Why do we sometimes forget what we want to remember most? How do we end up remembering that we want to forever forget? Take care of your mind and feed it with something great everyday to minimize the negative memories.
