Think About It

Most decisions you make don't really matter.

But some decisions will change how you act, who you will meet, what you will know, where you will be, etc... And each of these choices will spawn more choices and within those, more choices.

Think about it and choose wisely.

That is all.

~Could You Really Use A Wish Right Now?~

What: Perseids Meteor Shower. AKA the best meteor show in the year!
When: August 9-14 (12th is the best)
Where: The World (Outside) Northern Hemisphere has an advantage though.
Why: Because you've been listening to "Airplanes" for the longest time now.

Get away from lights/pollution if possible. Backyards usually work fine. Use lawn chairs or tarps and look up. Be with family or friends. Being by yourself usually gets boring unless that's your thing!

During the peak (August 12th) you can expect to see 1+ meteors/shootingstars per minute.

If you haven't seen a meteor/shooting star before... you definitely need to just to say you have.

#6 Songs With Meaning

Pshhh. Who would ever think that people nowadays listen to songs for meaning now? Fffffft. I mean, what am I even talking about? Listening to songs for meaning? alkejlfal Whaaaa?

I used to be "guilty" of listening songs only for the "beats" or because a particular artist sang it. This is probably what a majority of you do now.

However, it wasn't until this past year where songs began to mean things. They now evoke emotions never experienced before. They leave me pondering in bed at night. They bring me to the lake across the street from my house and leave me staring through it. They steal my soul. Wow, Will, that was deep. Thank you.

I am definitely not condemning any of you if you listen for the beats or for the artist. However, I just want to make it clear that music will mean something different to you when you can connect with it. 

Though it may sound weird from a "pop" piano player, I wish you all listen to the music that has meaning to you. The music I upload is for the entertainment of others. I have my own songs constantly being played on my iPod. Don't be told what to listen to and what to appreciate.

Anyways, when you look at it, a song is worth more than $0.99 or $1.29. It's true power is priceless.

#5 Motivation: A Life Lesson

Often, I come across people asking me, "Why are you so talented?" They then go on to tell me that they aren't good at anything. If you feel like you are one of these people, please continue to read this post.

First off, a talented/skillful person doesn't have to be a musician, juggler, artist, whatnot. Though many people don't think of it, public-speaking, organization or simply being talkative and friendly are all skills that many don't have. There IS at least one thing you are good at; you just might not know yet.

Still, it is always nice to have a talent that is "physical", and not just a characteristic. I find that it helps me deal with stress.

So, I am asking anyone who reads this to pick up a new hobby/skill soon. Start something and keep at it
Unless of course, you want to live life with the regret of, "I should've done something with my life instead of watch TV all day."

So how would you go about these? You can find tutorials on pretty much anything on YouTube. Watch a few  and begin.

Ideas To Try?

BoldUnderline - Things that would show the most progress in the least time
-Almost free or free
*Gotta buy something

-Soccer (or sports in general) Tricks

*Musical Instruments
*Photography / Editing

**Skateboarding / BMXing / Rollar-blading / Scootering
**Martial Arts / Parkour  (This is how I broke my ankle.... haha)

(I started juggling 9 months ago and am extremely satisfied where I am now (doing 6 balls)
I started guitar a few months ago and am pretty satisfied with where I am.
I gave up on waving (hiphop) but I will get back to it!
I am proud to say I have at least tried everything listed above!

FYI, I did not enjoy juggling when I started. I'm not gonna say picking up a new hobby/skill is easy or even fun... because I was quite frustrated from dropping the juggling balls. However, the fun WILL come when you start to get better. (If you are a person who has has been blessed at being happy even if you don't succeed, more power to you!) Juggling for me and my friends that I have taught, really snuck up on us as entertaining after we mastered the 3-ball cascade. Then, you are open to learn countless new tricks, juggle new objects, and eventually juggle more objects.

In short, START A NEW HOBBY TODAY so you have stuff to do... Be patient and practice.

Post a comment of something you are going to try!

#4 I See Dead People / LipDub

In 30 minutes, I shalt be leaving to Seattle. Gonna meet up the brohan for dinner. Then gonna go to the AAFS (American Academy of Forensic Sciences) at the Seattle, WA Convention Center.
FORENSICS: Investigation of crimes.
It's probably the place where CSI gets every episode's ideas from. Being Asian, my family will probably end up trying to get the most free stuff. Game on.

I wonder if they will be giving out any body bags.

Moving on to LIPDUBS. My school's senior class announaced that we are going to be doing a Lipdub...
LIPDUB: A single shot video of multiple students lip syncing to a song.
However, we would be doing "I Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Pees, the same song as

If it turns out good and I get permission, I'll upload it to my YouTube!
