Would You Rather: Questions #21-30

21. Would you rather live in Harry Potter's world or a life of fame and wealth?

Umm, I have note yet read any of the Harry Potter books or see any of the movies. I know, I know. Though, I've gotten the gist of the film by being around it, and of course, seeing many playing the game of quidditch. With that said - yeaaaaaaaah - give me a life of fame and wealth. Keep your sorcery. 

22. Would you rather date a celebrity of your choice or the hottest person you know?

The hottest person I know. I know them for their physical attractiveness, as well, as for who they are. Win, win. Plus, celebs are nuts. I don't need that type of drama in my life. 

23. Would you rather fly or be able to read minds?

Fly. Reading minds is way to intrusive for me. It removes too much of the mystery that makes life interesting.

24. Would you rather get a dream vacation or spend five days with anyone you want but remain in your hometown?

Ummmm, yeah. Just give me the the dream vacation. 

25. Would you rather have more time per day or more money per day?

Money is always great, but I am one of those people that never finds enough time in the day to do everything I want. It's probably the reason I stay up so late, and sacrifice sleep. Maybe thirty hours for the day? I would add those hours to my sleep schedule. 

26. Would you rather win the lottery or live twice as long?

Win the lottery. Once in a lifetime, right? 

27. Would you rather be a lawyer or a doctor?

This is interesting. I've been told since college that I have the skills to be a lawyer. However, I like the idea of helping people as most lawyers in my opinion, are annoying. For the sake of the question, and because I'm utterly torn on this, I am going with lawyer. I'll be one of those good-guy lawyers. You know, fight for those who don't have a voice...and all that. 

28. Would you rather have a rewind button in your life or a pause button?

Pause button. Mistakes are part of life. In some ways, they make life beautiful. 

29. Would you rather being able to communicate with animals or be able to speak all foreign languages?

Talking to Pandas, my favorite animals, would be utterly fantastic. Regardless, being able to speak all foreign languages provides you with a certain connection and access to other humans. I like the idea of the latter much more. 

30. Would you rather mentally never age or physically never age - at your current age?

Ooooh, so easy. Keep me physically at thirty-one. I'm good with that. But NEVER would I want to remain stagnant mentally. That's not living in my eyes.

4:44 - Jay-Z Pulls Me Back

I admit it. At one point, this Brooklyn-born-and-raised guy who narrated his growth to the tunes of one Jay-Z, believed that those days were gone. Over the last two or three albums, I sort of gave up on Jay-z being that voice that I can identify with. That voice that always speaks and holds truth to what I can relate to. Upon growing into a possible billionaire, and rapping about having money and whatever it was, I was one of those fans who decided, you know, will just listen to the hits. 
Partly, I was disappointed. He went from reaching in and representing the inner city heart of anyone who understood the words and sounds beyond just the catchy hooks and killer beats of what mainstream (and white) America heard.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/16/17

3 Up 
1. Surprised Mother/Bride - I'm not one for sappy stories, but I am a sucker for a good story that reflects the circle of life, and the meaning of everything happening for a reason. Give this story a quick read - a mother who recently lost her son, has the recipient of her son's heart in a transplant show up at her wedding. Good stuff. Just good stuff. 
2. MLB All-Star Break - The MLB hit it out of the park earlier this week with an amazing time that included an awesome Home Run Derby, and some shenanigans that made for a good All-Star Game.
2A. Aaron Judge - Kudos to the big man for not only going along with the budding hype, but adding some legitimacy to it with that Home Run Derby performance. 
3. Roger Federer - Another Wimbledon Championship for the vet as he continues to hold off the young flock on the rise, yet continuing to add to an already super impressive legacy.

Dope Sports Threads - 2017 MLB All-Star Break

You knew I had to post on everything aesthetic during the MLB All-Star Break festivities. I just had to! Yes, I am a nerd for this stuff - always have been, always will be. And unlike some baseball fans, the All-Star Break is still must-see for me. I enjoy the Home Run Derby. I enjoy the All-Star Game. I appreciate seeing the guys enjoy the game that I love as well.

I'll leave my continued feelings (and rants) for fans who continue to push back against the progression of the game of baseball. For now, I'll just leave it be. I'm sure the rest of this post may drive them nuts too. Oh well. Here are some things that caught my eye this week:

Turning Thirty-Two

Today, I turn thirty-two. There is just something odd about this age - like twenty-three was, or twenty-eight was, you know, the mile markers in between the rest stops - that just doesn't carry the super significance as 21 and 30 did. Although, at this stage of life, there are many mile markers, and those celebratory rest stops are much, much fewer in between. 
Though, it wasn't too long ago I passed a big one - thirty! And if you remember, I loved becoming AND being thirty. To be honest, I enjoyed being thirty-one, and really, thirty-two already seems kick-ass. Call me crazy, my thirties have been VERY enjoyable. 
But as I turn thirty-two, there isn't much significance in the number, but truly, it's about the changes in myself. Thirty was just two years away, and I am already better than that version of myself. This year marked ten years since I've graduated from college (Things I Would tell My college Self), and I am a much better version of myself compared to t…
