Tis the season!
"As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." R.I.P Nelson Mandela
Rest in peace to one of most noble and influential figures of our time.
Full review of the JT concert I waited 6 months to watch. My seat wasn’t ideal, but to be there to see the 20/20 Experience happen live is something I’ll never forget about 2013.
RIP Paul Walker
I best recognized Paul Walker from the Fast & Furious franchise, so it’s ironic that he passed away in the passenger seat. At only 40, I know he had bigger and brighter dreams still waiting to come to fruition. Gone too soon would be an understatement. But God knew his time was near so that’s why he’s gone now, even if the rest of us are wondering how they’re gonna explain the absence of such a familiar face when Fast 7 is released. RIP Paul Walker.
I should’ve added this before, but RIP to Roger Rodas, the driver of the car that crashed. You never know when your last ride will happen, but at least they are both in Our Heavenly Father’s arms now.

Amazing X-Men #1 variant
Shoutout to Skottie Young, your artwork is amazing! For one, this is probably my favorite pic of Nightcrawler on Tumblr at the moment. Also, these Marvel kids remind me so much of the kids I teach; facial expressions and everything!
As many of you know, the Philippines were absolutely ravaged this past weekend by Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiya). The death toll is expected to surpass 10,000. Beyond that, millions are without food, water, shelter. A state of calamity has been issued. Things are grim.
What many of you may NOT know, is that the Philippines is the second-largest readership of JL8, only surpassed by the US. Not that I wouldn’t step in for a tragedy of this magnitude regardless, but as such, it hits a little bit closer to home than most.
All that being said, I’m offering a wallpaper/cover photo bundle pack at my webstore for purchase. All proceeds will be donated to UNICEF Philippines, whose goal is to primarily assist the children affected by this disaster.
Obviously, the timeline photo has been posted up right here, and you can use it if you want without donating anything, and that’s fine. If you do, though, I ask that you include the information for donating when you do post it, so that others may find a way to give.
The wallpaper and cover photo can be found here.
Also, the original art will be on auction here.
God bless everyone in the Philippines suffering from this disaster. It’s really a shame how little attention 3rd world countries get until something blows up or a massive tragedy happens that effects thousands of people. Thank God for technology to spread the word through today’s media.

…..this is self-explanatory.
I actually started off majoring in computer science, but I knew right away I wasn’t going to stick with it. It was because I had this one professor who was the loneliest, saddest man I’ve ever known. He was a programmer, and I knew that I didn’t want to do whatever he did. So after that, I switched to Communications.

If I was to go to sleep before midnight, I would feel weird about myself, like I wasted a day. My most productive hours are between midnight and five.

I want people to follow their dreams, yes…but I’m not interested in telling young black kids how to be rappers…I want to show them that there’s so many other paths you can take, besides being a rapper or basketball player.

College isn’t in everyone’s hearts. I’m living proof, though, that school doesn’t mess up your plans. It gives you more experiences to write about.
