This story really made me smile: “‘Homeless to Howard’ Teen James Ward Crowdfunds His Way to College, Realizes a Dream.”
…but it starts in a sad thing.
yesterday, i told my mom, “you know, i feel like i’ve let everyone down. i feel like there were expectations of me in the past that haven’t come to pass, and now people just see me as a loser.”
her initial response? WHAT!!?!?!?!?!?
nearly blew my ear drum.
i explained further, talking about the dreams i had years ago and how many of them had yet to come to pass and those dreams weren’t just for me but for what i would be able to do for my family. i’m a big family person, and it matters to me that i can be there for them.
my mom wouldn’t hear any of this. “no one thinks you’re a disappointment. you haven’t let anyone down. you are not a loser. you do more than anyone i know. hell, i think you do too damn much most of the time. just wait, nellie. just keep moving and going and doing because your dreams will still come true.”
just those words over my phone warmed my sad, cold heart and made me believe maybe the dreams still have a chance of coming true.
I grew up with cats (and dogs and rabbits and…) and I adore them. I came across this viral video that features a slew of cats, and YES, it is a good thing. LOL
this right here. a friend posted it on a post of mine on fb, and i swear i watched it on repeat about ten times. it’s very short, but it’s so funny. the face with the music just kills me.
laughter (and dramatic squirrels) is definitely a good thing.
Just watched this video titled “MOTHER KILLS PIANO,” and I promise you that you will watch it and gets SO amped. I want to be half as jazzy-cool as she is NOW. LOL
Not only is Mama Hot Fingers (that’s what I call her) the truth on that piano, but her cool air just gets me so WHOO! Watch HERE and enjoy!
surprisingly enough, i am still making it in the 30-day arm challenge. just X’d out day 12. 18 more to go. if i made it this far, i’ll make it the rest of the way. wish me luck.
