The Pondering 10 - Favorite Colors

OK, so sometimes we over think things. And some times, the simplest things about us are the ones we never share or the things very few people know. So in keeping this post light-hearted, we'll keep it simple. An easy topic. Actually one I'm sure we all had a top ten for when were were about five years old, and a topic we often forget in regards to our significant others. What's your favorite color? I hope you know, espeically if he or she asks you that or you're probably in big trouble. Nonetheless, the following Pondering 10 list are my favorite colors.




10. Yellow - A bit bright sometimes, but it makes a statement in the right situation. 



9. Purple - Purple has taken over my life. This has been well documented. Besides it being my wife's favorite color and her using it to decorate our apartment, it's also the school colors for the university I work for. Purple everywhere. 



8. Gold - Gold is just awesome. 



7. Red - The power color. 



6. Silver - Silver is associated with second place, but it's such a sleek color. 



5. Green - I'd like green a whole lot more if my New York Jets could pull it together. Which feels like it will never happen. 



4. Baby Blue - How can anyone hate this color? 



3. Gray - Just easy on the eyes, and super cool. 



2. Black - I realized not too long ago how much I like the color black subconsciously. Most of my sneakers, my car, my phone, numerous t-shirts...I swear I'm not Gothic. Just a really cool and bad-ass color. 



1. Navy Blue - Easily, my favorite. Navy blue works for anything. Just a great color.

1. Aaron Weiss - It shouldn't be hidden or gone unnoticed - Weiss is a hero. The football coach shielded many students during the shooting, and saved the lives of many students. Again, Weiss is a hero, that should not go forgotten in this entire unfortunate situation. 
2. Emma Gonzales - How frickin' cool is this girl?! Her speech this weekend was passionate, it was raw, but most of all, it was filled with empathetic truth. Emma, and the many students recently involved in this shooting have called out our government, and that is so incredibly commendable. Honestly, it is quite amazing to see the political movement of fifteen year olds calling out the President. But this is the new America we are now in. 
3. LeBron James - Kudos to King James on how he handled the situation between him and Laura Ingraham. He could have stooped to Ingraham's level, but instead his refusal to be "just an athlete" is one that is needed to be heard.

Dear Son, Wild Imagination

--22 Weeks Old (Before Birth)--
Dear Son, 
As the weeks go by, the reality of YOU is beginning to settle just a bit more. I still don't think I fully understand it all yet, or even comprehend the transition that is taking place in my life right now in awaiting your arrival in a few months, but I am appreciating the journey. I am already seeing subtle changes in me, not overt lifestyle amendments - although, I'm sure that's to come - but simply, a renewed vigor of happiness, and of course, an all new mindfulness perspective. 
After all, I see how happy you make your mom. I can't understand this current stage. How can I? I'm not connected to you as she currently is - obviously - but you make her happy. And that makes me happy. And ultimately, it all makes me happy.

Dear Son, The Beginning

So I decided to start this series because after all, this blog has chronicled my life and my thoughts since I was sixteen years old. And while that is amazing to think about - almost, somewhat crazy to believe - here I am almost seventeen years later as a thirty-two year old man on the verge of having his first child. 
With that said, I wanted to continue that open and honest venture that has been here since day one, and plan to lay out all the thoughts, all of the feelings, and everything in between that will be this venture towards fatherhood. 
I've done similar series in the past such as The Unity Road Writings during my engagement, or even The European Chronicles, tabbing my time through Italy and England. But, this one just feels a little different. A little more personal, if you will, and again, that is rather obvious. [Insert "duh" here].
I have no idea how long this will last, or what will happen, or what I will write about in this open space, but I hope to shar…

"Just Shut Up and Dribble"

Laura Ingraham of FOX News really stepped in it this week. Her comments to LeBron James and Kevin Durant in regards to their political opinions and her direct message to them of "Just shut up and dribble" has caused a stir among many on both sides of the political divide - a divide that seems to grow daily in this nation.
Rather than wait to pen my thoughts, mainly because I was so fired up to do so, I shared took to Twitter (ugh..I know, sorry y'all) on a Subway ride home after seeing her rather ignorant remarks. 
See below for the quick rant:
