Title: Grunge

 

Author: Niko Sodini

 

 

Hey man great post! It’s good to see someone my age have an appreciation for grunge as well. To me it seems like grunge was the last stepping stone to bring us into the modern rock age. It was that cherry on top that brought be the deeper soul that hadn’t really been seen since the blues era and it was desperately needed.

Thursday Nights: The way you know you’ve become an adult

October 13, 2011

As sit here on my bed, already in my sleep attire, I wonder to myself when did things get so boring? For most college kids there is school, sleeping, and partying. Some of us however, have subtracted one of those things from the list in order to take on a job. Now for most of your reading this that might now seem like that big of a deal, you’re probably saying “that’s not so bad, miss out on a Thursday night out here and there.” Or “It’s not like I do anything at night anyway, might as well work after class.” The fact of the matter is it is not just a “Thursday here or there” or “working at night” by the time I am done with work, school, studying or homework I am tired to a point that I didn’t think was imaginable. Don’t get me wrong though, I do enjoy my job, it pays more than any college job I’ve ever heard of. The point I am getting at is that life has a way of making you grow up without you realizing it. Last year it was practically a sin to go to bed earlier than midnight. This year my whole day is great when I know I have nothing to do at night and I can get in bed by 10 p.m. I wouldn’t trade back for the world and even if I miss out on a thing here or a thing there I don’t worry, because I’m gaining experience in a high demanding work force that will put me on the top of any list of job applicants. I guess what I’m trying to say is I enjoy the fact that I’ve become more mature. All and all though, if it makes you happy, do it, but don’t forget you’re here to have some fun too. So for tonight, I think I’ll change back get up and go out for a bit. Hopefully someone will make the coffee exceptional strong at the office in the morning.

Title: Stand out and get liked online

Author: prinyourpajamas

 

Great post! I work for a company right now that has taught me the being a polite, honest, real person is far greater than any “deal” someone might throw at you. You wouldn’t believe the amount of clients I’ve won over with a smile here or a “thank you” there rather than a price tag.

Planking verse flagpole sitting: A tale of two bad economies.

October 12, 2011

For those of you that do not know what planking is, here is a clip from The Office that pretty much sums it up. Now that you’ve watched that hilarious video let’s compare planking to flag pole sitting. Since no one really knows what flag pole sitting is I will explain it. Flagpole sitting is the art of climbing up a flagpole with a small seat (most of the time just a wooden board) and sitting at the top for minutes, hours, or even days. Although this fad took off in 1924 (roughly 5 years before the stock market crashed) it carried on well through the depression.

To me there seems to be a correlation between a bad economy and the young adults of America doing stupid free entertainment. Now before I go any further I would like to add a disclaimer here: I love America, I love Americans, and as a young adult entrepreneur I believe it is the youth of our country that has the absolute obligation to pull us up by our boot straps with every ounce of blood, sweat, and tears that we have. Every day I practice these beliefs, with that being said though; I also believe that my generation is a bunch of lazy, unmotivated and unappreciative morons.

The reason that the generation of the stock market crash made it through is because they dared to crawl up flag poles and reach for the sky, both metaphorically and physically. They had it worse than us and still made it through. Maybe our parents coddled us too much, or maybe the technology of today made us this way, I do not know what happened. However this I do know, the young adults from their generation had there fun then went to work patching things up, we are having our fun (if you can call that fun) and things are getting worse, so I ask you people of my generation, whose laughing now?

Title: Dont worry, you’re worthy

By: PR Squared

 

I really enjoyed your post. To be honest with blogging becoming more and more popular I was afraid that at some point some “hot shot” blogger out there would get full of him/herself. It’s nice to see that you’re a regular person who doesn’t have a bunch of people answering your emails or phone calls, thanks for keeping it real.

The holy Facebook empire, and its fall.

October 11, 2011

We all know that Facebook has been making changes more and more frequently the past few months. But quite frankly are any of these necessary? Between the new features and layouts we all find ourselves in a frustrated mess every couple of weeks or so. So why do they do it?

In all honesty I believe it is because they are scared. As the common phrase goes, history tends to repeat itself. Now most of you may be sitting there reading what I just said and your thinking, how does this apply to that? Thing of Facebook as a civilization, imagine it as the Greeks or Romans, these civilizations had nice long runs but even they fell at some point. Now back to Facebook, they “civilization of Facebook looks at its history books and looks at the past “civilization” Myspace and thinks the reason they did not succeed is because they stayed relatively the same all throughout their time. I mean does anyone remember a single update of Myspace? Sure they look a bit different now but it was too little too late and that, I believe, was one of their biggest downfalls. However on the other end of the spectrum it seems that Facebook has taken it to the extreme and that will be its downfall. Soon it will be nothing but a ghost town (or I guess I should say ghost town website) and we will all belong to the next great social media civilization.
