Make a Choice today.

I am beginning to think that everybody has the life they want.

You can say your life is horrible and you are unhappy, you can say you are stuck and there is no way out. You can even claim there is nothing you can do about any of it.

But the truth is you are in control of your life.

You just don't know it yet.

The 1995 movie Dangerous Minds teaches us that we all have a choice. We can choose to stay where we are when things are bad, or we can choose to do something.

This is stemming from all the complaints I hear (and think) being here at CCS. I get in the elevator, go to class, log on to twitter, or talk to friends and most of what I seem to hear is complaints.

We all complain about how school is so tough, we have too much to do, we are too stressed, and on and on.

We are all blind to this idea that we have a choice!

You could have chosen to work, or travel, or live in the woods. Nobody is making you go to school. You could have chosen to go to an easier and cheaper school. You could choose to stay off social networking sites that waste your precious time. You can choose to stay at your desk and do your homework, are your friends forcing you to hang out?

I am not trying to point fingers at friends that read this.

No way.

I am just as guilty as everyone I know.

But I am trying, I am working towards making choices towards positive, and limiting my negative.

Your life is what you make it.

Make a choice.

Food history.

I love college life and dorm life and conversations that happen between my friends and I.

While sitting at my desk in the living room with Cara and Nino we got on the subject of Dippin' Dots, and how long they've been around.

The answer, to which we arrived at in a race of computer searches between Cara and I, is 1988.

Then we revisited a debate about how long Rice Krispies Treats cereal has been around. 

And on my way to find the answer, I discovered you can buy cereal on

Why would anybody want to buy regular cereal on Amazon, I have no idea. But I found it interesting.

Word of the day.

Today I learned what the word MADCAP means.


I read the word on he back of the SLC Punk dvd case and recognized it from a band title on Atticus...Dragging the Lake.
