Message for the Fellas'

Not my own work but I think the message is very clear and one that isn't shared often enough. I don't know who originally said/wrote those words, I just got them from the caption on a friend's picture.

"You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She's not perfect- you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break- her heart. So don't hurt her, don't changer her, don't analyze and don't expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss here when she's not there. "

- Unknown Bob Marley

EDIT: I shared this with another friend and they have informed me that this comes from Bob Marley.

The Miami Heat

Well as could be expected there was a lot of fall out when LeBron James said that he would be joining Chrish Bosh and Dwayne Wade in Miami next year. Personally I feel that Chicago would have been the better choice, but either way LA is still going to win it all.

But here is a funny comment that my sister shared with me;

"in the lebron backlash, my favorite new nickname for lebron, dwade, and bosh from a comment on espn:

5. The Nazgul

The Nazgul were the characters in Lord of the Rings that were former kings who turned into demons that were constantly chasing the ring. It completely consumed them and robbed them of their humanity.... I think this sums up the situation in Miami."

Am I the only one that was disappointed by the way the Cleveland Cavalires played the last 90seconds of the 2010 Eastern Conference Semifinals? They were down by less than 10 and instead of fouling and trying to make it a game (which is what you would expect to see from ANY TEAM in that situation), they just stood around and let the Celtics run out the clock.

Sure I was rooting for the Celtics to win, but watching the Cavalires give up like that was just pathetic. Here is a quote that they should take to heart,

"Winning isn't everything, but the desire to win is."
Clearly they didn't have this desire, and it showed in those closing seconds. Did they think that because they had the best regular season record and the NBA MVP that all they had to do was show up in order to win?

On the topic of winning, here is a quote from Vince Lombardi,
"If winning isn't everything, why do they keep score?"

If you haven't heard of it then read this article.

One thing I noticed was that some parents/adults were surprised at the kind of sexual content that teenagers made public. I'm not going to take a side and say whether this is a good or bad thing but I will say this. I remember being a teenager, and the kind of things that appear on Formspring are pretty "mild" compared to what is discussed in person. Also the topic of bullying is brought up in the article. Yes, this can be a real problem, but then you have to remember that they probably experience much worse in real life.

If you are a parent you should take the time to talk to your teenager about these thing and how they should deal with them. Additionally, make sure to let them know that they can come to you with any issues they have. And if they don't feel comfortable talking to you about it make sure that they know that there are other adults that they can talk to if it is more comfortable for them.

Take this chance to be parents and provide your kids with the tools and knowledge that they will need to get through life. Because as you know, there are things in life are much more difficult than being bullied in middle school or feeling sexually awkward.

Sorry to break the Graduate School Series, but I just had to share this quote from one of my processors.

"Money can either buy you freedom or chains."

Basically it was his way of saying, live within your means, to all of us graduating seniors.
