College students…

I understand that we’re all on the grind and we’re all trying to “do our own thing”.  But just remember that you have a community that will support you as long as you give back to them.  It really is “just us” when it comes to creating change in your community, starting your own business, or finding a career you’re passionate about.  So don’t forget about the people who surround you, because they’ll probably be the ones who help you get to where you want to be.

Home Cooking

This time of the year makes me think of the Philippines.  I’ve only been there twice, but both visits were during Christmas and/or New Years.  My parents are from the province of Olongapo.  It’s a beautiful place, even with all the poverty.  It’s a much slower lifestyle when compared to America, and I love it.  People are a lot less concerned with the superficial and materialistic things.  They’re just trying to live, day by day.  Thinking of my family and friends in the P.I. makes me want to do good.  If your parents or relatives migrated here from another country, they’ve set up shop so that you can carry on tradition.  What I mean is that they made a move, and now that we’re in America, its our turn to make moves.  So take advantage of your opportunities and set up the foundation for your seeds.  Here’s some pictures  of my trip to the homeland during Dec. ’10/Jan. ’11.

The GoodOnes Clothing Drive

Every year around this time we continue to receive blessings such as clothes from our loved ones. So we end up with a stockpiled of clothes that takes up a lot of closet space. So if you can help us out and take the time to take out the clothes you do not need the GoodOnes will happily take that from you and turn it into a blessing for the less fortunate here in San Diego.

Lessons from Evidence

Evidence, he’s one-third of The Dilated Peoples crew.  He’s been a solo artist since 2007.  He’s one of the illest emcees and he stays out of the mainstream media.  He focuses on the music, not his ego.  Check out this interview where he talks about his mentality and how he’s been able to consistently put out dope music.  If you’ve been a Dilated fan, try to keep up with EV and the moves he’s making, it’s motivating.  And if you’ve never heard of Evidence, listen to his music and you’ll probably find something that resonates with you.

Create something for you and your community.  It doesn’t matter how small you start off, as long as you’re doing it.  We all have passions, why not pursue them?  Always keep things fresh.  Start something of your own.  Be the example, get on a Good One.

Mind and Body

Get your Mind and Body right on your way to success.  The two complement each other, they work together.  It’s like if one part of you isn’t working right, the other part won’t work right either.  It’s take time and effort to develop both.  But it’s all good, the journey is the destination.
