Things No One Tells You About Life After Graduation

Graduation is right around the corner. Soon, the class of 2015 will be gliding across a stage, receiving their hard-earned diplomas, and hearing camera-happy parents yell “smile with your teeth!” as they’re captured in a moment of accomplishment in what looks like a formal Snuggie. If this describes you, congratulations! You have reason to celebrate. After all, it takes a great deal of drive to pore over books, pen research...

11 Life Lessons You Won’t Learn in the Classroom

Graphing equations. The molecular structure of sugar. The war of 1812. These are all things you (hopefully) learned about in school. We are told that school prepares you for life, and there are a lot of things that you do learn in school that you eventually use in the real world, like math. Please learn math.

“If You Fail, That’s Just A Chapter in the Story…”

Git Out Yo Comfort Zone!

As an emcee, I’m constantly writing lyrics, and at times it can get super tedious, usually accompanied with a wave of over-analysis that has you doubting if it’s exactly everything you want to convey, in exactly the way you want. Over the years, I think that the overanalyzation has hampered and even curbed my production. Recently, I had a conversation with a friend about each of our own creative processes...

Weekend Mix #5: Simplicity

  It's the simple things in life...   What  does this mean? We hear it a lot—that life is very simple and that we tend to complicate things for ourselves. Like a cluttered closet  that you can never seem to find what you need, our minds tend to clutter with ideas that can at times hold us back from seeing the little things that make life good!   Read More...
