18 Times Bob Ross Was Both Inspiring And Intellectual


Today we're going to talk about the great Bob Ross. Why are we talking about Bob Ross? Because everyone should talk about Bob Ross. His calm voice and happy disposition should be something that everyone should appreciate. With a single stroke of that voice he had a tendency to just drop some emotional and intellectual bombs on his viewers, blowing the paintbrushes right out of their hands. Here's a short list of his masterpieces.

1. There was the time when he beautifully informed us of the freedom of the skies.

2. There was the time that he said what we all needed hear.

3. There was that one time that when he gave us the warning that we all desperately needed.

4. He once gave us the perfect recipe for a good day.

5. There was the one time when he simply added some water to the glass half empty.

When in doubt, make it a bird.

6. There was the time when he assured us that we're always right.

7. There was that one time when his son came in for the episode and dropped some serious knowledge on how to make your foliage flourish.

8. There was that one time when he reminded us all that we're not alone in our loneliness.

9. There was that one time when he pointed out that we are surrounded by something that can make us happy: nature.

11. There was that one time that he gave us both financial and emotional advice.

12. There was the time when he let us in on his biggest secret: practice.

13. And then he revealed yet another secret to success.

What an open book that man was.

14. Like father like son.

15. There was the time when he gave us a nice geology lesson.

16. There was the time when he told us again that practice is the key to everything.

And that basically, if you're not talented, it's kind of your fault.

17. There was that one time he made it known that we can find friends anywhere.

18. There was the time when he reminded us that we are all rulers.

And finally, from dear Bob and I:

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
