2012! Here we come! I can't wait to kick 2012 in the face!! Here's something you can look forward to in 2012 ;)
Anyway, going to the many recent holiday parties has revealed something to me. Many kids are secluded in groups of three at most while playing Nintendo DS or iPod games. What happened to yelling and socializing and playing hide and seek? This is where I am very grateful for people like Vincent who have an unlimited supply of circle social games.
Being at yesterday's TN (December 18th) was fun seeing all the kids play board games. Heck even Khoa Vianney Andrew and I had a short game of Twister in the hallway. Board games are great icebreakers for kids and allow them to get to know others better than just playing games like tag. But at least even tag allows more socializing than playing Angry Birds etc.
Another thing that is ironic, with so much technology available, kids are actually losing some computer basics. I've already mentioned that its sad that none of the boys in HS/NS knows how to build a computer. When I was in 9th grade I knew how to set up networks and run command promps and build computers and overclock them. Do you guys remember how hard it was to connect a computer to a workgroup on Windows 98 or Windows ME? It was a Pain. Nothing was automatic, one wrong setting on the router or computer effed up everything. Kids were connecting to the router on Man Lan Day with their magicical Windows 7 telling me "I'm not connected, there's no internet". *facepalm*
BOSTON-Shaquille O’Neal has blamed President Barack Obama for Boston Celtics’ point guard, Rajon Rondo’s shooting troubles and confidence.
O’Neal claims that Obama made fun of his shooting ability during a fund raiser where they met the President in his book “Shaq UnCut.”
The Huffington Post reports:
The President turns to Ray, points at Rondo, and says, “Hey, Ray, why don’t you teach this kid how to shoot?” Everyone starts laughing.
KG told me he saw the look on Rondo’s face and the kid was devastated, embarrassed. Dissed by the President, even though I’m sure Obama didn’t mean any harm. Rondo smiled and went along with all of it, but KG told me he could see it in his eyes. It bothered Rondo. It killed him.
Shaq went on to write that Rondo “shot the ball horribly” the next day and he “stopped taking shots after that.”
Prepare to shake your fists because it's another edition of "What Really Grind my Gears"
Remember, comrades, Joshep's friend will be sleeping on a colt next to Christ with a frog machine on in the background. *ribbit ribbit
GIRLS REALLY NEEDA READ THIS: We guys don't care if you talk to other guys. We don't care if you're friends with other guys. But when you're sitting next to us, and some random guy walks into the room and you jump up and tackle him, without even introducing us, yeah, it pisses us off. It doesn't help if you sit there and talk to him for ten minutes without even acknowledging the fact that we're still there. We don't care if a guy calls>OR TEXTS< you, but at 2 in the morning we do get a little concerned. Nothing is that important at 2 a.m. That it can't wait till the morning. Also, when we tell you you're pretty/beautiful/ gorgeous/cute/stunning, we freaking mean it. Don't tell us we're wrong. We'll stop trying to convince you. The sexiest thing about a girl is confidence. Yeah, you can quote me.
Don't be mad when we hold the door open. Take Advantage of the mood im in. Let us pay for you! dont 'feel bad' We enjoy doing it. It's expected. Smile and say 'thank you. Kiss us when no one's watching. If you kiss us when you know somebody's looking, we'll be more impressed. You don't have to get dressed up for us. If we're going out with you in the first place, you don't have to feel the need to wear the shortest skirt you have or put on every kind of makeup you own. We like you for who you are and not what you are. Honestly, i think a girl looks more beautiful when she's just in her pj's. or my tshirt and boxers, not all dolled up. Don't take everything we say seriously. Sarcasm is a beautiful thing. See the beauty in it. Don't get angry easily.
Stop using magazines/media as your bible. Don't talk about how hott Chris Brown, Brad Pitt, or Jesse McCartney is in front of us. It's boring, and we don't care. You have girlfriends for that. Whatever happened to the word 'handsome'/'beautiful' i'd be utterly stunned by a girl who greeted me with 'Hey handsome!' instead of 'Hey baby/ stud/cutie/ sexy' or whatever else you can think of. On the other hand im not sayin i woulndnt like it either ; ) Girls, I cannot stress this enough: if you aren't being treated right by a guy, dont wait for him to change!!!!!
Ditch his sorry butt, disgrace to the male population and find someone who will treat you with utter respect Someone who will honor your morals. Someone who will make you smile when you're at your lowest. Someone who will care for you even when you make mistakes. Someone who will love you, no matter how bad you make them feel. Someone who will stop what they're doing just to look you in the eyes....and say 'i love you' ..and actually mean it. Give the nice guys a chance. Guys repost this if you agree. Girls re post this if you think it's cute.. Every Guy who isn't a jerk will agree with this, so we hope that all the girls that read this will repost this. Life is too short to complain about everything that comes your way so stop and smell the roses in life because you might never have another time to take it, so take your time because they are all different in every way, so take chances in life, if it doesn't work out then fine, there are always more roses to smell
When he saw their faith, he said, "As for you, your sins are forgiven."
Then the scribes and Pharisees began to ask themselves, "Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who but God alone can forgive sins?"
Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them in reply, "What are you thinking in your hearts?
Which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Rise and walk'?
But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins''--he said to the man who was paralyzed, "I say to you, rise, pick up your stretcher, and go home."
He stood up immediately before them, picked up what he had been lying on, and went home, glorifying God.
