Humble vs. Humble

Why the way we talk to ourselves can be toxic?

Humble vs. Humble

Since finding Superwoman a.k.a Lilly Singh a few years ago, I learned about a friend of hers that also did YouTube videos. And that friend is Humble the Poet. When I first watched his videos, I wasn't too keen on what he was doing. My idea of content at the time was skits and funny rants.

But I started to "grow up". I started to love the little intricacies of day to day life. While the skits were great, I loved getting to know the person who was behind the persona. That's when I ran into a few of Humble's videos. I was beginning to be a fan of his music and content, that I bought his books.

Recently, an older video of his was on his Facebook page and it caught my attention. "Humble vs. Humble" . After watching the video, all I could think about is how true to life it is. How most of us are the first version of Humble, constantly bashing on ourselves. We nitpick all of things that could go wrong and that are wrong with what we are doing.

But the real inspiration is the second version we see of him. It's interesting that we need to hear those things from others in order to know that we are doing enough. When in reality, we have the strength to remind ourselves that we can do anything that we set or minds to. We can be the ones to remind ourselves that we are amazing. That our goals are reachable. No matter what they are.

The need to be kind and spread love doesn't just stop at other people, but it should be towards ourselves too. In the end the person that we should be doing everything for is ourselves, so why shouldn't we do everything we possibly can to create a better version of us?

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
