Rainn Wilson Breaks It Down For Us

Haha, a little damper for your lofty hopes and dreams this Friday ;).

Bonus: Sharing of this video (a partner project between College Humor and Malaria No More) raises awareness of the plight of those living in areas in which malaria is an epidemic. So you are spreading some good in watching it too :).

Seize the Moment!

Posted on

I know I felt inspired!

Found this little tchotschke or however you spell that (seriously, spell check has no idea what I’m trying to say. And here I thought Yiddish was sufficiently Americanized to know what’s up. Anyway!) at Barnes and Noble the other day, and put it up in my office where I constantly hope to be re-inspired to make the most out of the moment, and to be active in creating my opportunities. Maybe it strikes you the same way! 🙂

That Sh*t Cray: The Preeminent Minds of Our Day

Posted on

LOLZ, Becca Frucht from MTV.com compiled this hilarious list of quotes, and you have to determine if they were spoken by a) Kanye West or b) Newt Gingrinch. Ready to guess which brilliant mind came up with what? Here we go:

1. “There’s a large part of me that’s four years old. I wake up in the morning and I know that somewhere there’s a cookie. I don’t know where it is but I know it’s mine and I have to go find it. That’s how I live my life. My life is amazingly filled with fun.”

2. “I believe in myself like a five-year-old believes in himself. They say look at me, look at me! Then they do a flip in the backyard. It won’t even be that amazing, but everyone will be clapping for them.”

3. “I will spark a generation of thinkers who will question traditional thought until they find the absolute truth.”

4. “I have enormous personal ambition. I want to shift the entire planet. And I’m doing it. I am now a famous person. I represent real power.”

5. “It doesn’t matter what I do. People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.”

6. “I’m going down as a legend, whether or not you like me or not.”

7.“Primary mission, Advocate of civilization, Definer of civilization, Teacher of the rules of civilization, Leader of the civilizing forces.”

8. “I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation. Of this decade, I will be the loudest voice.”

9. “A mere 40 years ago, beach volleyball was just beginning. No bureaucrat would have invented it, and that’s what freedom is all about.”

10. “She isn’t young enough or pretty enough to be the President’s wife.” (Referring to an ex.)

11. “I’m like a tree. I feed the branches of the people.”

12. “I’m like a machine. I’m a robot. You cannot offend a robot.”

Answers are here. No matter how many you got right, we all win.

Valid Prayers.

Dear Sweet Baby Jesus,

Can I please have one — just ONE — more hour a day to get all this mess done?

I promise I won’t waste it screwing around on Facebook.

Probably.

Amen.

-Cathy G

Gotta be honest when you pray, folks ;).

What Do You Aspire To?

“The loftier the building, the deeper the foundation must be laid.”

-Thomas à Kempis

Dreaming big is awesome. Sometimes we get discouraged when we forget it takes dedication, intention, and time on the front end to make that happen, so don’t go forgettin’ that, ok?
