An Old Movie With A Good Song

Let's set the scene.

An Old Movie With A Good Song
Although I ain't good enough..

A few days ago I started to tend to cleaning and I started humming. It was a different type of hum. I was humming notes to a song I didn't know. It was like I unconsciously tapped into my childhood and remembered a song. It wasn't like a Bob the builder song or Aladdin singing to my soul. No. It was something deeper than that, like Beyonce singing to my soul. I remembered it was before she got plagued by the illuminati, it was a simpler time and had a tint of church to it. Finally I remembered: It was from the movie Fighting Temptations. Alright let's set the scene.

In this mess of beautiful harmony, you have the sweet version of Beyonce with big names like Cuba Gooding Jr, Lou Myers, Angie Stone and Mike Epps (before his Netflix Special).

The story is about a gospel choir going to a national competition. Before going to the competition, they must build a choir. Dysfunctional people join together to form dysfunctional groups and the hilariousity that exhibits itself from that. For example, in the choir, some people are wearing robes, and others aren't wearing robes. I'll leave it up to you to figure out why. Some way somehow, they actually pull off the competition and sing well. A few things to note before listening:

1. The redneck dude go HAM on the organ.

2. There are three inmates in the choir, they wear bright orange jumpsuits.

3. The biggest, scariest inmate is a countertenor.

4. Tambourine player is killin the game!

Ah, yes. That was the tune in my head. I thought someone needed the message in this movie. Besides, It's nice to remember 2003 Beyonce before Formation happened.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
