Chris Pratt was the 2018 MTV Generation Award recipient, delivering a light-hearted and inspirational acceptance speech directed toward the younger generations, self-titled "9 Rules from Chris Pratt." Even though Pratt is addressing the younger audiences, I think everyone can benefit from his advice, so....

1. Breathe.

"So you don't suffocate." Literally and figuratively.

2. You have a soul!

"Be careful with it."

3. Don't be a turd...

"If you're strong, be a protector, and if you're smart be humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons, don't wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully."

4. When you're giving a dog medicine, put it in a tiny piece of hamburger.

"They won't even know they're eating medicine."

5. It doesn't matter what it is, earn it.

"A good deed? Reach out to someone in pain, be of service. It feels good and it's good for your soul."

6. God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you.

"Believe that, I do."

7. If you have to poop at a party, but you're embarrassed, just do what I do: lock the door, sit down, get all the pee out first, then once all the pee's out, poop flush. Boom.

"You minimize the amount of time the poop is touching the air, because if you poop first it takes you longer to pee, and then you're peeing on top of it, stirring it up. Then the poop particles create a cloud that goes out, and then everyone in the party will know that you pooped. Just trust me."

8. Learn to pray.

"It's easy, and it's so good for your soul."

9. Nobody is perfect!

"People are going to tell you you're perfect just the way you are, you're not. You are imperfect. You always will be. But, there is a powerful force that made you that way, and if you're willing to accept that, you will have grace. Grace is a gift. And like the freedom that we enjoy, grace was paid for by somebody else's blood. Do not forget it. Don't take it for granted."

Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty." But if you're thinking about becoming a defense attorney, it's not this pretty simple. Defense lawyers argue that their clients are innocent because they don't want their actions to seem suspect in any way. They essentially say for the sake of the argument itself.
