I DO however like the old school joints like tetris, bejeweled, and dope wars. Check out this article on some of the most addictive mobile games right now, and share some of your favorites.
Michael Moore’s documentaries are always eye opening and game changing, in my humble opinion. I remember watching Bowling for Columbine just shaking my head at the world wr live in. Regardless of box office sales I will probably check this one out as well.
As an adult, something happens at the end of every year. I find myself reflecting over the previous year’s accomplishments and failures. For the most part, I’m not too hard on myself and I’m always impressed at some of the obstacles I’ve overcome (with the help of the Almighty). I pride myself on being productive and try to be reasonable when it comes to goals and my life mission.
Today is January 4, 2016 and I arrived at work thinking “what am I going to do with my life?” I love my job, and for the most part life is grand, but without growth and evolution…we inevitably die. I started thinking about the rat race that we all succumb to if we get complacent. Go to work, pay bills, travel and little and do it all again. I am satisfied with today…but my tomorrows are another story. How can I make this year even better than 2015? What am I ultimately going to do with my life?
Like a millennial, I googled ‘What Am I Going To Do With My Life’ and came across thee most exhilarating article from Tiny Buddha. The author, Jammes McWhinney, sounded like he spoke to my every inaudible thought at that moment. I found the post inspirational not just for the ‘I need to make a change’ type of person, but also for someone who may have questions on their current path. We all are in some realm of self discovery as we journey life. Check out the article and let me know your thoughts on the questions and your response.

One of the secrets to being a highly productive person, is good time management. Here’s a good read from Time magazine giving you some tips.
Religion is one of those things that everyone has an opinion on. I often hear people refer to themselves as spiritual but not religious. However, I think that religion has gotten a bad name over the years as we have watched loonies kill in the name of God. Hell, the people’s temple had folks killing themselves and their children in the name of God. There is undeniably a need for humans to belong to something…believe in something.
I don’t see the problem with religion. The argument I’ve heard against Christianity is that the bible was written to ‘control the masses’. I say this: the bible gives great guidelines and morals on how you should operate in this life. Many of these morals are followed by DECENT people, not just Christians! I think we all can agree that ‘Thou shall not Kill’ is reasonable. At this point, I don’t see how religion ‘controlling people’ is any different than how media is ‘controlling the masses right now’.
I understand why some would rather be classified as spiritual and not religious…But if you’ve paid attention to anything I’ve ever blogged about, you know where I stand. LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE. TO EACH HIS/HER OWN. I also feel like saying ‘I’m spiritual’ is trendy at this time so…*shrug*
In any event, this is a dope article by Nanice Ellis. Check it out below.
