I’ve taken my health very seriously this year. Reasons are: to look great, have more energy, think clearly, and save money. Doctors, hospitals, and medications are expensive, so I rather not even deal with it at all. Exercising daily (or as much as I can) is actually tough. It’s tough just getting up and doing it when your mind makes so many excuses not to do it or to do it later. I learned the best way to exercise is to just go and do it, no matter the time of day or night. As long as your doing it. Whether it be jogging, lifting weights, stretching, or playing a sport, just go and do it. You’ll feel great about yourself, you’ll look better, and you will least likely to get sick. Also, remember to eat healthy. Healthy eating doesn’t have to be bad tasting greens and vegetables. There are many recipes online to work with. Eating healthy is also much cheaper than eating the fast food diet. It takes discipline and most of us grew up without it or no one really taught us how. The internet is filled with websites to help teach you to become healthy. Whatever the exercise it is, just do it (stop making excuses), for yourself and for your health & wealth.
This whole We Hate LeBron thing reminds me of a story. A woman is in front of an apartment house that’s engulfed in flames. She’s screaming, “Help! Help! My baby’s in there!” A man sprints up and says, “Which floor?” “Tenth!” she screams. “In the back!” He rips off his coat and goes running in. Five minutes later, he’s back, coughing, choking, and handing the woman the baby. She looks at the man with a frown and sniffs, “He had a hat.” That’s life for LeBron James. Anything short of an NBA title makes James a useless wad of pre-chewed pork gristle in your eyes. Whatever he does — three MVPs in nine seasons — it’s never enough. You hate him — still! — for the way he botched the announcement of his free-agent move from Cleveland to Miami. Forget that hundreds of people move from Cleveland to Miami every year. Forget that dozens of NBA players change teams every year. It was only one mistake. Has he showed up in any police reports since? Has he cheated on his fiancée ? Has he left his children stranded in the pick-up circle at school? Has he refused to speak to reporters after a single game this season? Has he called out his teammates for their poor play, as Kobe Bryant did twice this postseason? Has he gotten his coach fired? Been fined for criticizing refs? Asked to be traded, released or named general manager? Has he punched anybody? Choked anybody? Screamed at any parking valets? (Mom doesn’t count.) Smashed a chair? Drop-kicked any equipment? Tiger Woods does that on the front nine. OK, LeBron is not perfect. Threw a Gatorade cup. Punched a walking stick. Carries that stupid little man purse. But if you were to fill a plane with the most spoiled superstars in the country, he’d be boarding in the D group. You despise him because he passes too much. Imagine that. You hate a modern NBA player for not being selfish. OK, I’d like to see him use his bag of hoop tricks to drive more at the end of games, too. But it’s not like he hasn’t done it, dozens and dozens of times, including huge fourth quarters against Boston and Chicago in last season’s playoffs. You people seem to want him to take it every single time, even with Dwyane Wade as a teammate. And Chris Bosh. But it’s The Big Three, isn’t it? Not The Big One. And just so you know: In playoff games, LeBron has taken 13 final shots in tight games in regulation and hit five of them to win or tie. Kobe has taken twice that and hit only seven. Can we all just take a Xanax? Besides, he passes so exquisitely. His passes are clairvoyant, leading teammates to places they didn’t even know they were supposed to go. They’re as soft and buttery as croissants. Why wouldn’t you want him passing? And why is the hoops world so hypercritical of this one thing when he’s so brilliant at every other part of the game? Defense? He’s guarded every position against the Celtics — the 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. “He’s guarded everybody but me,” says Celtics coach Doc Rivers. Only Rajon Rondo is even close in all-around brilliance this postseason. James is second in points, fourth in steals, 10th in assists, second in minutes. He leads his team in double-doubles and the league in double standards. Wade missed an open jumper to lose Game 4 in overtime — how come he’s not “scared”? Last year, you hated him for being a shrinker. Now you hate him for not being a closer. Every game, he must CLOSE. Was Magic Johnson a closer? A few times, yes. Every freaking time? No. And by the way, most of the time James doesn’t need to close because he has been so drop-your-popcorn good the entire game. Aren’t we still playing the game of basketball? What happened to attacking the defense where it’s softest? What’s wrong with looking for the open shot? Aren’t his 12 teammates getting paid, too? [+] EnlargeLeBron James Getty ImagesLeBron James in 2003, around the time the expectations for him began to build. People — enough. This whole “Crown or Drown” thinking on James has to stop. Grown men are actually strapping microphones to their ties and saying that if James doesn’t win the title, the Heat ought to be broken up. For what? For making the Finals last year? For making (at least) the Eastern finals this year? James has been with these guys only two seasons. It took Michelangelo four years to paint the Sistine Chapel. You people would’ve fired him in two? But I think the reason you hate LeBron James the most is that he just doesn’t seem to suffer his failures as much as you’d like him to. You want him to brood like Kobe after losses, glare like Jordan when things don’t go his way, scream at teammates like Tom Brady when they’re behind. That’s not James. His spirit is too light. He’s too much fun. He’s a 6-foot-8 pixie, a 27-year-old kid who’s addicted to kidding. He’s a genuinely sweet person. You think of the great athletes of our generation — Jordan, Woods, Lance Armstrong. They all had a bit of the jerk gene in them. James is missing it. He is loved by his teammates, not feared. So sue. That’s probably going to work against him in the long run. It will keep him from being Jordan or Kobe or Kareem. It will keep him from being enough. But isn’t that somebody you want your kids to have as their hero? Hat or no hat? (source: EPSN.com)
ERB (Epic Rap Battles of History)
If youtube had a hall of fame, this channel would be on it. It’s all around funny talent with history. History Entertainment.
A real channel with some funny info. If you’re a 90s kid, then it will all make sense.

The channel where I get my news from in around 10 minutes while laughing through most of it. Philly D has funny opinions and keeps it real.
If you know youtube, you know the #1 channel on it, RayWilliamJohnshon. Viral Videos made even more viral.
Everyday we do our usual routine. I see it all around me and most places I go. People on a cycle doing a normal routine. I know you have your routine. Even when it’s time to relax or have fun, people have a normal routine. But, what happens if you break your routine every now and then? You learn to appreciate life, you learn new things, and it just feels great. So, what I do is every month, I try to do something different. Maybe take a few days to go traveling to somewhere I’ve never been. Or, maybe take a few days (or weeks) to work on a project I’ve been planning but procrastinated to take action. Maybe during the day, just read about something I never read about or learn something new. Life is so much better when you live it.. I mean really live it. Break the routines and Do something remarkable with the life you have. You’ll be glad you did 🙂
Friends, Family, and I decided to take a trip towards South Cebu (specifically San Fernando, Cebu). We heard good things about a mountain resort called Singli Mountain Resort. The trip was about 45 minutes from Cebu City. And, once we arrived at Singli, we were impressed. Although about 3 km going up from the national highway, the trip was worth it. Singli mountain has 3 swimming pools, cottages, cottages for overnight stay, and a store. Entrance was quite cheap, only 50 pesos per person. We will definitely go back to this mountain resort up high in the mountains of San Fernando, Cebu. Thanks to Singli Mountain Resort for the friendly accommodation, clean resort, spring water pools, and beautiful mountain top view.
