Would You Rather: Questions 61-70

61. Would you rather celebrate your birthday or Christmas?

This one is tough. I'm not one to make a big deal over my birthday, nor have I enjoyed Christmas day, you know, with all the spirit and stuff, for almost a decade now. Experiences will do that. However, in a perfect world, I would love to recapture that Christmas magic. So I am going to go with Jesus' Birthday. Maybe someday, that will return for me. 

62. Would you rather say everything on your mind, or never say anything again?

I have a blog, so easily, it's everything on my mind. It doesn't have to be verbal. But not saying anything, at least to me, I find annoying. I like hearing and reading the opinions from others. Unless of course, they are just outrageous. 

63. Would you rather be able to make people fart on command, or have flashlight hands?

Call me crazy, but the "make people fart" option is insanely hilarious to me. Yes, I'm very juvenile. I'm going with that. After all, flashlight hands? Come on, there is an app for that.
64. Would you rather work for Google or Facebook?

Google. I've heard of their perks, and would probably be more engaged in my work. 

65. Would you rather go to the movie theater alone and watch a movie or go to a restaurant and have a meal?

As many of you know, I haven't been to a movie theater in almost ten years now. I probably should get a counter on this blog for that. The streak is impressive. But I would still choose that. Eating alone is way too lonely. I love breaking bread with others. 

66. Would you rather your life be free of awkward moments or embarrassing moments?

Awkward moments are teachable. And they make for tremendous stories. You can save me the embarrassing moments. 

67. Would you rather spend a weekend in your perfect vision of a luxury hotel or your perfect vision of a camp site.

If you know me, this one is insanely easy - luxury hotel, bay bay!!  

I've never been camping, and I'm sure it's fun, but ummmm, yeah...no. 

68. Would you rather read an awesome book or watch an awesome movie?

Awesome books. Books are way more personal. 

69. Would you rather fit into any subgroup anywhere but never be popular or fit into only the popular subgroup where you call home?

Fit in anywhere. I love meeting new people and being a part of different sub-groups. Popularity never meant anything to me. 

70. Would you rather have the ability to fly or x-ray vision?

What's the point of x-ray vision? Let me fly!

Sante Fe Thoughts, and More Tired Thoughts on School Shootings

It was too similar to Columbine for me. I still remember as a 13 year old staying home from school sick, then suddenly finding my being sobering up on all illnesses watching in horror that unfolded in Colorado. 
Yesterday, I was home from work, and thus did the same thing. Glued to the couch. Flipping between channels. Refreshing my Twitter feed. Trying to find out details in horror. Once again shocked, angered, frustrated, and saddened. 
We now live in an America where 22 school shootings have occurred in 2018 - a calendar year still young in it's existence. Seriously, let that sink in. And if it take a moment to wrap your head around it, that's because its absurd, and it's also so engrained in our culture, in our everyday realm of societal possibility. School shootings? Wow - unbelievable.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/20/18

3 Up
1. JJ Watt - Watt is just a stand-up guy. No other way to say it. An athlete that embraces the city he plays in, in times of good, and when he is needed. Paying for the funerals of all of the victims in the latest school shooting is just another example of the kind of dude Watt really is. So much props. 
2. Sante Fe Admins - So many times in these shootings, the efforts and bravery of the many who help to keep students safe, calm, and diffuse the situation often goes without praise and notice. Once again, much love and praise to those who did so once again. And yes, to those who lost their lives doing so as well. 
3. Las Vegas Golden Knights - In their inaugural season, the Golden Knights are in the Stanley Cup Finals, and quite frankly, could possibly win the whole damn thing. It's so impressive, and speaks to the parity of the NHL. But really, if you're a fan of a team currently in a drought (say, like my New York Knicks?), this run is absolutely remarkable.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/14/18

1. Mother's Day - Happy Mother's Day to all of the Moms and women out there that do so much. Oddly, next year's Mother's Day shall be a bit more personal. 
2. James Paxton - ANOTHER no-no in the young MLB season. Paxton, a promising lefty for the Mariners put it all together a dominant effort shutting down the Blue Jays offense. 
3. Avengers: Infinity War - Of course, I haven't seen it yet, but kudos to those involved with the film as it is now one of the Top 5 grossing movies of all-time. I got to work with Disney this past semester in promoting the film, so I feel a bit connected. Though, I haven't seen any of the preceding films. I have some time this summer...

1. White People Calling Cops - It amazes me the number of stories in the news, or those that simply went viral, of white people calling the cops on black people for well, doing absolutely nothing. Do a simple Google search this week and take a look at some of those stories. It's quite a…

The Pondering 10 - Issues/Annoyances with College Basketball Product

Following the month of March and all of the madness that comes with it during the NCAA Tournament, the product that is college basketball has been an issue. It is no secret to most, and to the very denial of die hard college basketball fans, the overall quality has taken a step back. Recently, College basketball ambassador and analyst, Jay Bilas, gave his honest opinion on the state of college basketball, and believes it has been poor the last three seasons. As a fan of the overall sport, I do watch college basketball, but am more invested and interested in the NBA. After receiving much backlash on twitter and here at the DP, I've decided to turn my reasoning for not being interested in the college product into the latest Pondering 10 list.
