With all the cool things going on in #LoveLansing these days all you have to do is pay attention for 5 minutes and you can find something to do.

I don’t want to influence your thoughts so I won’t list them all here, but I do want to try something fun.  I went through the following list and listed what I thought of for all the following words.  Now I want you to do the same.

Take this list, copy it into a comment, and then connect each word with the first thing that comes to mind for you.

for example:   Jedi :: Luke Skywalker  or iPod :: Angry Birds

Your New Zodiac Sign? So what?

January 13, 2011 1 comment

OMG!  Alert the presses! Your Zodiac Sign Changed!?

In case you haven’t been paying attention people have been freaking out all over facebook and twitter about a new Zodiac sign as reported by different blogs, news sites, and articles online.  ( for example: http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/zodiac-signs-2011-zodiac-sign-wrong/story?id=12609264&page=3 )  So if your birthday falls in one of the groups of dates that changed signs people are saying that their identity is being changed.

So what?  What does it change?  I dare say it doesn’t change a thing.  If you were stubborn before, or carefree or maybe a flirt you will still be that same person today, and tomorrow and maybe even moving forward if you don’t grown into something different over time.  If you are a socialite, or a loner, or an odd mix in between that is part of who you are.  That isn’t something determined by the stars or when you were born.

If you were someone who took your daily horoscope and tried to make it fit into your day ta-da they were all wrong.  all the more reason i feel like they are bullocks.  It would seem that a writer/astronomer with the Discovery channel somewhat agrees with me: http://news.discovery.com/space/is-astrology-rubbish.html

What are your thought?

Morning!

January 10, 2011 Leave a comment

It’s monday morning.  You hopped online to check twitter, or to check your facebook status and you were intrigued by my upbeat A.M. greeting.

Well, good morning to you.  I hope your day is off to a good start.

Here are 3 things for you to do today to help make your day more productive.

1. Don’t put off little things that you feel like putting onto your To-Do list.

2. listen to your favorite song before you leave for work, or in the car on your way in.

3. Last but not least, just like your mother used to always say:have a tasty breakfast.

Hope these help!

-John
