One Word. One Year. Just Do It.


One Word. One Year. Just Do It.

The other day, I sat down and watched a video that a friend shared with me and told me to watch. The video was called “Remember: an inspirational video.” The overall message of the video was that people are consumed by immense amounts of fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of being judged, fear of failure, fear of rejection, and fear of things that are even unknown as fear at times. I really got a lot of thinking out of the video, so I decided to share some key ideas I had after watching the video.

The main theme of the video is the reason people are not living to their full potential, which happens to be fear. Sounds plain and simple, but the video shares how fear is overtaking some people’s minds and lives, and causing them to live with constant anxiety.

This video also discussed a study that looked at how people reacted to finding out they only had a certain amount of time left to live. The study found that people started actually living and went from powerless to powerful. One of the main conclusions of the video is that your time is limited, so don’t hold back or be fearful. One powerful quote from the video is “When you face your fears, you become the person you want to be. When you run away from your fear, you’re not living.”

Finally, the last part of the video discusses the idea that you must be willing to risk failure to succeed and that absolute motivation is the key to success. One of the final quotes we are left with is by Albert Einstein: “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”

I would definitely suggest this video to anyone really, but especially anyone who is looking to be inspired or regenerated of some sort to watch this video. The video can be viewed from so many different angles and can teach countless lessons to anyone. If there is one thing I would like to leave people with from the video, it would be this: “Join the movement to maintain your motivation.”

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
