#TakeAKnee

My personal schedule has been hellacious recently managing classes, personal health, and writing. I have about six posts that I’ve started and not finished that are things I just desire to express myself on. So, I pledge to continue to post as often as I can. The most relevant today is the protest, my good brother, Colin Kaepernick started in fall of 2016.

Urge For The Supreme (Origin)

centralgalacticcoreclosur8-1

Humans are very interesting creatures. For all of our claims that we have an innate urge to stand out, be valued and feel special, and by our quest to do just that, we seem to actually work against the claim of originality. Similar to the image that the “Hipsters” have worked so hard to create, being a counter-culture. They turned around and created a main culture where they all blend in by trying to be as outrageous as they can. You can see this trend in everything from Movies and Music to Art and Fashion.

Y.O.L.O. & Ratchets versus Class & Carpe Diem

And here I thought it meant something about Oreos...
And here I thought it meant something about Oreos…

Y.O.L.O. is by FAR one of the most annoying phrases of the 21st century next to swag being used in a Toyota Commercial.

What? You didn’t know American Gangster was a movie starring Frank Lucas about ME?

I’ve been taking a good amount of time out to develop myself as a person to truly be able to write anything helping others out. So, starting both blogs at the same time. Lessons in Class and milesthemagnificent.wordpress.com. I am inspired and finally feel like I can get a lot of my thoughts out to you. Continue reading “What is Class?”
