Late Night Cereal

Cereal is one of the easiest things to make for breakfast, and it's so good! So why only eat it for breakfast? Cereal is definitely something you can eat at any time of day, or night. Especially night. When you're pullin' a late nighter and you start getting hungry, go run to the kitchen or where ever it is you keep your food, and make some cereal. You can even put it in a cup so it doesn't require a spoon! Personally, that is my favourite way to eat it. College kids use Red Solo Cups for a lot of things, one of those being cereal!

Trust me, you wont regret it!

Mind Warp

I recently happened upon a video of an artist who was given a dose of LSD drew a few pictures throughout his trip. I have to say it was pretty interesting to see how the portraits evolved.

The mind is a fascinating thing that can be easily manipulated by chemicals and emotions. The things that come from that manipulation can be astounding. 

I'm not saying that you should go drop acid, but let you mind wander for a bit, and see what neat things you can think of.

I've said before that music is a beautiful sound that everyone should experience at least once a day. But, along with beautiful sounds, there are pretty annoying ones throughout the day that we hear as well. I know that there are a few things that really drive me up a wall. Anyway, one of the most beautiful sounds that we do not hear enough of is the sound of silence. Every now and again we need to break away from the all the chaos that we deal with in our daily lives and sit in silence for a minute or two. Some people like to use meditation as a way to further enjoy the silence. 

So, every once in a while. Shut up. Sit down. And enjoy the quiet!

Holding Hands

It doesn't matter who it's with, feeling someone take your hand in theirs is a very small but intimate gesture. Whether it is your significant other, or even your mom, it's a very simple thing and it shows that they care about you a lot. 

This is going to be a rather short post, but hey, some people needed the reminder! 

Go out and hold someone you care about's hand. They'll appreciate the gesture.

You've Got Mail!

Nowadays you can pretty much talk to anyone online or through the phone. Physical mail is mostly gone except for bills and certain advertisements. In the age of online shopping and communication, it makes getting actual letters pretty exciting. But one of the main reasons that no one sends mail any more is because it takes forever for the other person to receive it. And if you have ever ordered something online, or were waiting for a letter from that certain someone, then you know how long that wait can feel. Especially if they give you an estimated time that it will be there. I guarantee that those days will feel like an eternity.

Just ask this guy!
But there is that day, you think to yourself "Man, it probably got lost in the mail" (when in reality it has only been 3 days that you've been waiting). And suddenly, you open your mailbox, and sitting in there is your neatly packaged...package! Woo hoo! You might feel like skipping all the way home (just don't forget your car if you took one!). 

Finally getting something that you have been waiting for can be the most fulfilling feeling of your day. And that doesn't just go for mail, it can be anything from a car, to a kitten, to a...sandwich after a long day of work. Who knows. Whatever it is that you are waiting for, be patient, it will come in time, and when it does, it'll be even better than you though!

We've All Done It...

You laugh when you're friends do this. There was a show on TV about it. You can't help but notice the guy stopped next to you at the stop light doing it...

At some point in time, you just got so into the music you were listening to, you couldn't help but to jam out right then and there. 

This is moderate. But hey, maybe that's how you jam.

You get to that certain part in your favourite song, and you just lose it. You start to sing loudly and do a little jig (as much as you can do in your car anyway). I know that just the other day when I was at the gym, I had my headphones in and was jammin out to some Datsik, when the bass dropped, it made me smile. Sometimes I'll jam out and sing with the song and stuff, but if a song can make me smile like that and give me chills, it must be damn good. 

If I recall there is a quote that goes like this: 
"You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching."
That's William W. Purkey for ya. 

And he is absolutely right. Dance when you feel you need to. Who cares what others think. However, like everything else, there is a time and a place that you should definitely not jump up and start jammin out. Such as, a business meeting, a funeral, and a wedding ceremony (save it for the reception!)

Various Perspectives

I recently flew up to Wisconsin for a week long trip, and of course I booked a window seat. As I looked out of the window, I noticed how the clouds looked from above. Usually when I look up at the sky, the clouds look almost 2D. Like a really intricate wallpaper or something that is covering the Earth just a mile or so above the surface. However, when you look at clouds from above them, as you are traveling past them at ~500 miles per hour, you notice how poofy and beautiful they are. 


From the ground, the clouds seem as though they aren't really moving, at least not the big ol' huge ones that I'm interested. Sometimes you'll see a little tiny one, just puttering along, but that one isn't important. 

The moral of the story of my trips to foreign lands is: You should always look at things in more than one perspective. It could shed some light on a problem you might be having with said thing.

Trust me, it can be beautiful.
