Would You Rather: Questions 71-80

71. Would you rather watch a long film of all the best moments of your life thus far or a short clip of the only most pivotal moments?

I would definitely go with a short clip of the most pivotal moments. I don't need a long film about myself. Although, a documentary about these pivotal moments would be very interesting. And yes, I love documentaries and knowledgeable pieces.

72. Would you rather go on a trip with your friends or your significant other?

Ha, easily my significant other. We've been to a handful of places around the globe already. She's an awesome co-pilot, and a tremendous travel partner.

73. Would you rather look young and beautiful and never age or have the ability to be invisible?

Invisibility. This may sound weird, but there is some grace in growing old. Plus, youth doesn't always equal beauty.

74. Would you rather listen to an electric guitar or an acoustic guitar?

I've always been a sucker for acoustic guitars. I have one, too! Someday I'll really teach myself how to play it instead of the random strumming that I do on there.

75. Would you rather spend the day watching NASCAR or golf?

Oh man, both sound super boring to me. I guess I'll go with golf. At least there is some variability there. I don't think I'll ever understand the appeal to NASCAR.

76. Would you rather go on a cruise to multiple places or fly to one destination at a time?

Only cruises I've been on have been short boat rides around the city, or in the islands to view sunsets. Not interested in long cruises in the slightest bit. Get me to a destination. I'll explore and dive into the culture there.

77. Would you rather have a personal fashion assistant or a personal chauffeur?

Personal chauffeur. The ability to be driven would be epic. Blah on the fashion assistant. If I could, I would wear shorts and sneakers everyday to be honest.

78. Would you rather hide or seek?

Seek. It always appealed to me be on that side. Plus, I was too tall to really provide myself a great hiding spot.

79. Would you rather have peanut butter or Nutella?

Peanut Butter. I'm addicted. I can eat it all-day, everyday.

80. Would you rather live anywhere you want and have your house paid off or travel anywhere you want for free forever?

Travel. Travel. Travel. Travel. And oh yeah, travel. A house would be nice, but it's just not me. I love traveling and seeing the world. Give me that option.

Dear Son, Letting In and Letting Go

--25 Weeks Old (Before Birth)--
Dear Son, 
The word is now spreading to more and more people about your existence, or eventual arrival - however, you prefer to look at it - and it feels like a fire that is now out of our control. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but as mentioned in prior letters to you, your mother and I are pretty methodical in how we divulge news about our private lives. 
Truthfully, your mother is definitely more willing to share news than I am, and you'll eventually see that one day. Maybe I'll change, who knows? But the truth is, because of the nature in how I grew up, in the neighborhood that I did, and really, the independence that I had to attain early on, I've always been late to share things with others. That's just who I am. It's probably why I have had this very blog since I was sixteen - to let those thoughts out somewhere.

March Sadness

This post has been coming for awhile, and it now seems like the best time to do so...
So, here goes...
Division I Basketball is getting more and more difficult for me to watch and support. 
Just like I once laid out regarding my ethical feelings towards the NFL (and really, football, overall), thus is the same credence and feelings I have developing for Division I Basketball - mainly the NCAA's approach to it. Now of course, my feelings aren't something new as many share my thoughts and opinions on this - the NCAA is corrupt and college basketball is a sham. But for me, it goes even deeper - certain programs, coaches, and communities enable this exploitation of young men. And yes, many shy away from that word, but that's exactly what college basketball has become, an exploitation of services.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/18/18

3 Up 
1. UMBC - I'm really struggling to watch these tournament games. The games have been entertaining, but morally, I can't stomach the exploitation of these young men (more on that some other time). Regardless, kudos to the young men of UMBC who made history this week. I'm thrilled to see such a program make headlines, and of course, for a coach from the DII and DIII ranks who did it the right way. 
2. UMBC Social Media Team - Yo, whoever is running the UMBC Twitter following their defeat of Virginia deserves a raise. There was some serious shade being thrown, and to be honest, everyone who was in their way in some ways, deserves it. 
3. 2018 Paralympics - Oddly, I watched a tremendous amount of these games and was totally in awe of the athletes. Shockingly, the hockey games were super entertaining to me. So much love and credit to those who participated, and even more importantly, continue to persevere despite disabilities.

1. Florida Bridge Collapse - So sad. I…
