Hungry for God or Food?

 

Hunger is a worldwide problem that about 925 million people are currently dealing with in the world today.
People will often go days and nights without having a single meal, and not a lot of people will even stop and think about this very important issue. This is so significant because it affects primarily the 3rd world countries who can’t obtain a lot of resources. While we all have our burdens and own problems to deal with each and everyday as well, nothing could amount to the issue faced for so many when they are hungry. And, in some cases, it never ends. Gandhi once said “there are some people in this world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them, except in the form of bread.” Although extremely depressing to think about, Gandhi takes the social issue of hunger into a spiritual issue as well. Each and everyday while a rich man may have more fruit in his shampoo than some on their plate, the rich man still takes that fruit for granted. Overall, our society as a whole has a lot of eyes that need to be opened up to the bigger problems in life. Perhaps hunger can be ended with our help. We are so fortunate each and everyday to be able to have warm clothes to wear, and plates that are full, need to do our best to open up our giving hands to the less fortunate without asking for anything in return. And in doing so, we can serve god by not only helping our fellow neighbors, but by spreading his presence in not just a piece of bread.

Highschool Footprints

This is a little tangent, but I feel like it needs to be expressed, where many people feel the same way. Highschool so far has been nothing but ordinary, and I feel like the whole reason being is not only where I go, the family like enviro, but practically it’s all about the footprints in your heart when it all comes down to it, your friends, of course! This year I have met my best friends, who consist of a dork like me, a sassy girl, like me at times, and a whole lot of love and friendship. When you look back, the grades won’t matter after all, because who you become outside of highschool is all about the setting you put yourself in, meaning your friends. So, the next two years will fly by quicker than ever, but hey, good times fly by like bugs, am I right?

This city 

Chicago – otherwise named “Chi city, Chiraq” etc… Has several negative connotations related to it’s entirety. However, you can’t look over (literally) the skyline that attracts one of many eyes & tourists each day. A city that sucks you in, makes you feel like home as you wonder about the streets & alleys of our fellow city. It shows you how life can be so narrow, yet have so much depth. You can get the snowy amist in the winter, and the beautiful beach in the summer. And, a little bit of safehaven in fall & spring. Rooftop parties and dining in each night, the city of Chicago is sure to be an amazing landmark on the map. And no, this is not an advertisment for the city. 

Health gone wrong

This is the first generation of children who are expected to live shorter lives than their parents. If we continue at our current rate, by the year 2050 one in three Americans will have diabetes, and in twenty years 95% of Americans will be obese or overweight. Holy cow! (no pun intended).
Now these are the words of a fellow blogger, so i apologize for the abrupt “oops this isn’t plagiarism remark”, but I must say the synopsis of the generation today’s health is nothing but short of this. The last statistic stated explains it all. Now do we stop now & act now, or stop later and act later? Well the answer is simply start now, but does the burger from Mcdonalds share the same mindology as you? …didn’t think so.

To get a guy; You have to think like a guy

Titled by the wise Words as well as published words from the lady herself, Giuliana Rancic. This candid qoute explains the love culture in today’s generation perfectly. Essentially, girls like to sit back & rather be approached than approach, but that’s the mentality that will never do you in. As Giuliana writes, thinking, approaching, loving like a guy may be your key to love. That is, the door to love. Which, is weird to think, but by all means so accurate. Without approaching a man first, if he has no approached you, you are showing absolutely no interest in pursuit for this lad, and quite frankly, men will not ideally pursuit themselves in a girl with no confidence, or social skills. So, in summary, Giuliana may have found the love of her life by opening the door first. “To get the guy, you have to think like the guy.”

Difference 

The boring trap in this world today is full of foolish minds thinking it’s completely absent in the universe to be a little extrodinary, a little different. However, I disagree & I have a strong rebutal for it. For one, love yourself, you’re created to have a lot of you in everything you do, cheesy I know. Think about the opportunity with being yourself creates for yourself! And most importantly, embracing yourself can most importantly give you the eye for love 

Pop Culture- what went wrong?

Pop culture – defined as a human trap of emotions and bullshit. Hypothetically that is not the real definition, but it is in my eyes and I hope to god in most of the populations eyes as well. What went wrong though? We shouldn’t assume that it’s the reality and pop stars iconic lives today that ruined it, because truthfully it is not. It’s the minds behind the screen and the beholder of the pen that ruin our love for pop culture. Look back into the Monroe, Hepburn days. The qoutes that were published were always positive, it truly radiated who they were as people. Perhaps, that’s why young girls today look up to those past times and admire their words. The future will look and turn their heads at what is published and fed to them from stars like Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, because the only nice things that are published about them is the racy photos that are portrayed in the pages of your US weekly. Find some sympathy and dump the ignorance you have for the celebrities of today, because it’s not them that’s wrong, it’s the people Behind the Screen. 

Fashion vs. Personality 

Now think for a second, go walk into your closet, and look around at your by all means extrordinary wardrobe.  Then, look into your mirror. Do the colors of your wardrobe match compatibly with the colors of your personality and depth soul? Today fashion is a frenzy and people are always trying to get the insider towards it. From Urban Outfitters campaign of straight hipster, boho style. To Victoria’s Secret risky and scandelous look, even looking into warmer days with the new hit Triangl bathing wear, do we really even show our personality like we used to be able to through fashion? Or are we trying to fit the in crowd stereotype and feel hipster like Kylie & Kendall. What truly is fashion today, and have we lost our souls to it? 

Love don’t live here anymore

When the youth of today, which I realize I am well apart of, so better worded “my generation” uses the term “we’re talking”, “we’re a thing” or the big D word Dating, is it really Love, Lust or perhaps classified as nothing? The next time a young couple is out walking, stop and ask them “now do you know the difference between love or lust?” Perhaps you’ll get a blank stare, a runaway terror, or an abrupt No. Because the truth is, no one knows where love lives anymore
