Had to share these 2 videos of Super Funny Kids!! They have both brought me laughs for days 🙂

Try not to let the length of this video deter you from watching it. This 5-foot-5 guy, Brandon Todd, is a great example of what can happen when you combine determination, dedication and dreams together. The strategy he used can be applied to many things, not just athletics. He wanted to accomplish something, so he did everything in his power, plus some to do so.

 

This is awesome! I love seeing technology being used for something as wonderful and useful as this. The billboard shown in this video is real and is Located in Lima, Peru. It literally creates water out of thin air by using a filtration system to convert humidity into 100s of gallons of life sustaining water.

I’m guilty

I try to step back and remember the days when our communication was predominantly done by phone (talking) or face to face. Compared to texting, liking, tweeting and browsing. But I haven’t quite determined if how we communicate today is all that bad. Because of these mediums I have come to chat and know a number of you, and without the internet it would not be possible. I’m thinking that it’s all about balance. Although, I do believe it would be healthier if your face to face communication outweighed your internet communication.

There is almost no other way I could get updates on dozens of my friends in a matter of minutes like I can on Facebook. It’s like a daily newspaper that includes stories, obituaries, photos, events and comics all created by my friends and family. Or take the blog feed here where I get to be a part of each one of your shares.

Since, my injury and having my driving privileges taken away I have had to lean on the internet to feed my desire of communication more times than not. I know it’s not the best thing, but sometimes it’s the only thing.

So, yes I’m Guilty of clicking, liking, and internet relationships, but is it really all that bad? Are we creating a touch-less emotionally sparse means of communication? Or are we reaching people and their minds and hearts that otherwise would not be possible? I know I’m enriched by a lot of what you all post, share and write.

What is normal?

The other day I started thinking about What Is Normal? Yeah, I know I’ve been on this earth long enough that I should have already thought about this, ha. I mainly thought of this because I tend to put a lot of pressure and stress on myself in thinking I should be doing this or that by this point in my life. But why do we do that? Why do we think we should fit a certain mold or follow a certain track? In my opinion it’s society and/or what we see in the media. I don’t know of any book or absolute rule in existence that tells us what weight we should be, who we should love, when we should marry, how much money we should make, when to have children…This list could go on and I’m sure you could think of some yourself.

Like the image above says, normal is purely subjective. I had a thought the other day that looked further into this concept:

Alright I created a video to accompany this post and in spite of my fear of making and posting it, here it is:
