Instagram Fridays: College Humor video about Instagram cliches

College Humor posted this incredibly hilarious video about cliché Instagram pictures.  I’m definitely guilty of some of these.  Are you?

Note: NSFW because of language.

 

My Instagram cliché pics (as evidenced in the video):

Most elaborate latte ever!

Chipotle. I just got hungry as I was posting this.

Follow up on last post— a blog post following a particularly “woe-is-me” post about myself. 

Motivational Mondays: A Week of Thanksgiving

Inspired by my friend Angie who writes a neat blog titled I Really Lived!, I took a cue from her and decided to post each day giving thanks to all that I have.

Today, I give thanks for my life.  No matter how many worries I may have in my life, one thing I am definitely grateful for is life! For this occasion, I’m posting Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds.” Apparently that is the title since my whole life, I thought the title was “Don’t Worry About a Thing.” 😀

 

Motivational Mondays: Wreck-It Ralph’s message was exactly what I needed to hear…

Over the weekend, I saw the movie Wreck-It Ralph starring the vocal talents of John C. Reilly as Ralph, Sarah Silverman as Vanellope, Jack McBrayer as Felix, and Jane Lynch as Calhoun.

Plot Summary

Ralph (Reilly) is a villan in a fictional old-school video titled Fix-It-Felix.  Ralph is constantly under the shadow of the hero of the game, Felix (McBrayer) and aspires for a better life where he’s the hero and wins shiny medals for his accomplishments.  His quest for a medal messes up the eco-system of the video game universe (the arcade in which the games are set in) and leads him to a Mario-Kart like racing game called Sugar Rush where he meets Vanellope Von Sweets (Silverman). Vanellope is ostracized by her community for being a glitch and isn’t allowed to race in the game. In order for both Ralph and Vanellope to get what they want, they got to work together.

I’m not going to give away the ending of the movie (even though it’s easy to predict endings for a Disney movie) but the lessons I needed to learn were:

1) That being a hero or an all-around respected person is not measured by how many awards or medals you get.  It may not even be based on whether or not your dreams come true.  Instead, being a hero can mean making someone else’s dreams come true.  Self-respect comes from building others up.

2) You may not be able to change your situation but you can change the way you look at it.

Moral of the story: If you’re feeling down, change the way you look at the situation or take the focus of yourself and focus on making someone else’s dream come true.
