30 Day Challenge – Day 20

Day 20 – How important you think education is

I think that education is important, but to an extent. It’s important to learn the basics that we get in school growing up, but I believe that there is more that can be taught. Some parents and people place too much emphasis in the wrong aspects of education.

When standardized tests come into play, that’s when I draw the line. If you’re going to judge a variety of students on a generalized way of thinking, then you take the fun out of learning. Everyone learns in their own way and should be able to.

College degrees cost so much for information that you’re not likely to use again. The college I went to made everyone take courses that had nothing to do with their fields. They took hits to their GPA because they could not grasp something that they had no interest in being a part of in the first place.

I think that education should include skills that individuals will need in their daily lives. We never learn how to do taxes or how to build our credit, but I can tell you how to find all three sides of a triangle…

30 Day Challenge – Day 19

Day 19 – Discuss your views on divorce

Marriage is sacred.

I believe that divorce should be the last resort unless there’s abuse or infidelity. In those two cases, it’s clear that one person isn’t holding up their end of the deal.

Sometimes though, the love can also fade and people get tired of one another. Irreconcilable differences. If you no longer love one another, it’s ok to walk away. It’s often the case that those two people are better off as friends.

Marry the person you truly love. The one who makes you fall every day. Then, you’ll never have to worry about divorce.

Divorce hurts all involved in different ways, especially the children. That event lives with them their whole lives and haunts them sometimes as their fault.

I don’t ever want a divorce, so I’ll marry the person I love and I’ll keep communication my number one priority.

What are your views?

30 Day Challenge – Day 18

Day 18 – Your beliefs

I believe in loyalty. Never turn your back on someone you call friend or Family.

I believe in love. Always have and always will.

I believe that you should work hard for the things you want.

You should be good to all people, even if they may seem like that is not what they want from you.

Family is important.

Everyone deserves equal treatment regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, religious beliefs. We’re all human at the end of the day.

These are the few beliefs that come to mind. What about you? What do you believe in?

30 Day Challenge – Day 17

Day 17 – Highs and Lows of the past year

Low – My ex was starting to be distant for no reason. I suspected that she was interested in someone else, but she denied it and said it was work. Put a pin in that.

Low – I was getting evicted for using a hot plate to cook my food. I never got the lease, but apparently it was in there.

Low – I wasn’t going to graduate because I didn’t have enough done to do so.

Low – Could barely afford to pay rent because my work permit expired. My ex paid the full rent and said not to worry about paying her back. Put a pin in that.

Low – Pin 1. Found out my ex was cheating on me from a mutual friend. I went dark that night. I was at the carnival village (it’s like Coney Island) and after I heard the news, I couldn’t stop drinking and laughing. I broke in the bad way. Pin 2. She wanted the money for rent back after it was all over. She isn’t getting a dime.

High – I had a great time at carnival. The best ever. I spent every day with one of my brothers, Khallid. We had a blast. 

High – I got job offers back to back. I had to turn down people to get the job that I have now and another one that was a pilot study.

High – I got over my ex. Completely. Yea, I don’t like what she did, but I have gotten past it. It’s like ever since she left, only good has happened so far. She was what was keeping me back.

High – I fell in love with me. I left people alone and stuck to myself. I started reading to get sway from life. I started watching new shows to keep me busy.

High – Started back up an old friendship. I was spiraling out of control and she saved me. Everything started with a show we both liked at the time. Didn’t know what was coming next.

High – We became an item. I’ve never been so happy and content in my life. I love her.

High – I’m moving away with her to hopefully better opportunities and a better life.

You can’t have lows without highs. Life balances itself out eventually. This too shall pass.

30 Day Challenge – Day 15

Day 15 – what is your favorite quote?

My favorite quote is

This too shall pass…

I heard it as a child and I held on to it for the rest of my life. In bad times, I think on it and it lets me know that the bad feelings won’t last. In good times, it teaches me to cherish every moment because I never know when the end is going to come.

Take it with you as you go through your days. Let it help you become better and feel better.

[Had to double down today because I missed a day. Shhh. Don’t tell anyone. 🙂 ]

30 Day Challenge – Day 12

Day 12 – Bullet your whole day

• I went to bed at around 4 in the morning. I was talking on the phone with my girlfriend: she didn’t want to go to sleep without me being on the phone.

• I went through a couple alarms this morning before finally getting up and getting my day started.

• Texted my girlfriend for a while.

• Took a shower with some music playing. Washed away the sleep.

• I got dressed with my favorite music playing and got into a good mood. I knew from that moment that I was going to have a good day.

• Walked to the bus stop, but I forgot my charger. Had to walk back home to get it. Silly me. Got on the bus and headed to work.

• I talked to my advisor about my thesis and she directed me in the right path for the edits that I needed to make. I edited it in about two hours while my shows downloaded in the background.

• After my shows were done, it was time for my date with her. I walked happily to the bus stop at school and waited anxiously for the shuttle. She sneaked up behind my and wrapped her arms around my neck. Highlight of my day.

• We got on the bus and headed into town. Walked to the tire shop were I play dominoes then to the restaurant.

• Took her a while to figure out her order, but she finally got it. We ate lunch and talked about anything and nothing.

• After lunch, I walked her to the bus stop and kisses her before she got on. Didn’t want to stop missing her. I wouldn’t mind waiting for the next bus.

• I walked back to the tire shop and played some dominoes with the guys. I won some and lost some. All in a days work I guess.

• When everyone left, I walked home and called my her. We stayed on the phone for some time before I let her go.

• Then I started watching the shows I downloaded this morning. Gonna be doing that and texting her for the rest of the night.
