Something to Think About
Haven't had much time to blog, but now's my chance. This weekend was different, to say the least. Stressful. But everything's okay now. So far, I'm loving my class at the university. The students are really cool. It doesn't help that I look like I should be in the class, instead of teaching it! I always try to remember how I was as a freshman/sophomore in college. Clueless and carefree, yet I always got my work done. I think we do more talking, discussing current events and entertainment than actual oral communication. We do what we have to do though.
I didn't sleep well last night at all. I have alot on my mind. When I think about it, it's not even that crucial. But...I have some decisions to make soon and very soon.
I heard something on the Steve Harvey Show this morning that stuck with me. A caller was giving a testimony about not being able to break into an industry. Ever since she'd moved back home, nothing was working for her. Steve told her this: "The reason we don't succeed is because of two things:we haven't been called to do it or we have not been faithful."
No truer words could have been spoken. Of all the things we want to do, whether it be a career, a family, relationships, have we been called to do it? It is what God wants for us or what we want for ourselves. Think about hardships you had on a job. Sure you went to school for business management. You even have advanced degrees, yet there's something missing. Maybe there's something else that you are even better at. You just don't know it yet.
We have not been faithful. I think that means we have not put in the work that is required. Have you done research? Have you made sacrifices? How can I be a writer or an entertainer or whatever if I have not practiced my craft?
Real talk. Something to think about.
Now on to the fluff. Making the Band 4. Aubrey, please get the _____ outta here STAT! Showstoppin' was tight, but ya'll ain't no TLC. Beat it. Diddy is the most arrogant man on the planet, but he's so damn funny! Whew! I don't think I can take a season of the foolery. Did I hear that Diddy was changing his name again to Sean John??? Again, I say, Diddy--kick rocks!
Oh, and unfortunately, nothing entertaining has been happening. Just slow motion. I vow to myself to get out and do some (constructive) things this first part of the year. Maybe I'll have some funny stories for you.
