I’m so incredibly grateful to have had teachers in my life that I can still go to for awesome advice like this.
I needed a win. Finally pulled the trigger on a tattoo. First one. Been wanting it for over a year. Glad it’s done.
I remember in 6th grade my parents tried to make me do homework. I sat at the desk and wrote “this is stupid” and “I’m not doing this” on every other page of my math book. That’s still my basic attitude towards most school.
Complaining about the church, the government, the world at large? Over it.
"People of faith being cynical is a bit of a contradiction. After all, don’t we believe in a God who—even when we make mistakes—is faithful to desire to bless us and see potential wherever we put our feet?"
As I get older, I see myself becoming more and more cynical: of relationships, other people, school, just everything. I had a lot more hope in people when I was younger. I’ve slowly lost that. This is a really good article and I highly recommend it to everyone. I really needed it right now.
But at the same time, girls, don’t date guys who aren’t nice. Should be self-explanatory. It never is.
Alright guys I’m bored.
Does anyone have any Jesus or music questions? Nothing is off limits. Ask me anything about me: 100% honesty and vulnerability starting…..
Today in the middle of a lecture about Copyright durations and the possibility of them being extended, yet again, to save Mickey Mouse my Copyright Law teacher busted out this story:
People used to catch chimpanzees by putting a coconut in a box. They’d cut a whole in the box that was not big enough for the coconut to fit through. The monkey would grab the coconut and refuse to let go. They couldn’t get the coconut out, they couldn’t break the box. They’d starve there by holding on to that stupid coconut.
She then laid out some life advice I wasn’t expecting from a law teacher. She said don’t die holding on to your coconut. Sometimes you just have to let things go. Don’t give everything for that one thing that you think is your destiny. Don’t kill yourself to achieve the impossible. Let go of the coconut.
And then ended it with: “…and sometimes you just need to let the copyright duration expire.”
