Euphoria - D'zire (Motivational Song)

This song is certainly one of my favorite songs. Whenever i feel sad, low energy, and not motivated; I listen to this song. This song gives me that energy, that motivation, that drive, to keep fighting until i achieve my goals. The message this song tries to convey is: 
If You Want Something, Just Go and Get It. Period.

12 Angry Men (1957 Film) - Best and Worst Argument

Best Argument:
I believe that the best argument in the movie was made by Jury #11, the immigrant. Jury #11’s argument was that, Juries have a responsibility of deciding the fate of a person they have never met before. So it is a Juror’s primary duty to make unbiased decisions without bringing any personal conflicts or any personal interests in play. Because in the end, Juries have nothing to gain or loose from a case, so why take it personally?
According to me, this is one argument that stands on its own merits. Jury #11 is right when he says that Juries should make unbiased decisions and not take any case personally. Because that’s what Juries are for. Juries can make or break a case. One simple vote or one simple decision by the Jury can send an innocent person to jail for life. Or even worst, it can cost a person his life. So before passing their decision on a case, Juries should first look at all the facts and all the reasonable doubts, and then vote in an unbiased way.

Worst Argument:
I believe that the worst argument was made by Jury #3, the emotionally distraught father. Jury #3’s argument was that no matter what anyone says, the boy is guilty of murdering his own father because the facts say so. Jury #3 was very stubborn with a streak of sadism and never listened to anyone. Well, the reason I say that Jury #3’s argument was the worst is because, what Jury #3 failed to understand is that facts can be made up.
You cannot decide a persons fate based on facts alone. Juries must question the facts and clear all the reasonable doubts before deciding whether a person in guilty or not guilty.
Jury #3 was taking this case personally, so he refused to question the facts or any reasonable doubts. Jury #3 was determined in proving the boy guilty; he never even bothered to have any reasonable doubts.

Don't Be A Skinny Bitch. Eat Healthy.

     One of the biggest problems with our generation is that we use the words ‘Dude’ and ‘Babe’ too much. These days, people prefer living a rampant lifestyle rather than a healthy lifestyle; especially girls who are always in a never ending pursuit of ‘Size Zero’. I am not making a gender biased statement but instead speaking from a factual vantage point. The number of anorexic and bulimic women has increased drastically in the 21st century. Why? The only logical reason I can come up with is, Insecurities. If you are not happy with who you are, it reflects on the outside.
In order to deal with their insecurities, people either start eating a lot or people stop eating all together. ‘Diet’ is the magic word that people tend to use. It may sound weird in a way, but almost every single friend of mine, both male and female, are on some kind of diet. Turkey Noodle Diet, Angelina Jolie Diet, Bill Cosby Diet, etc… The whole concept of diet has been altered to fit the virtual reality of a person. To begin with, some people don’t even know what the word diet means. defines the word Diet as, a particular selection of food, esp. as designed or prescribed to improve a person's physical condition or to prevent or treat a disease. These days, when we hear the word Diet, the first thought that comes to our mind is ‘Stop Eating’. But in real terms, Diet means eating healthy and nutritious food that helps us stay both physically and mentally fit.
Healthy eating is not about strict nutrition philosophies, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, and keeping yourself as healthy as possible– all of which can be achieved by learning some nutrition basics and using them in a way that works best for you.
Healthy eating begins with learning how to “eat smart”. It’s not just what you eat, but how you eat. Your food choices can reduce your risk of illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes as well as defend against depression. Additionally, learning the habits of healthy eating can improve your health by boosting your energy, sharpening your memory and stabilizing your mood.
Instead of being overly concerned with counting calories or measuring portion sizes, think of your diet in terms of color, variety and freshness, then it should be easier to make healthy choices. Focus on finding foods you love and easy recipes that incorporate a few fresh ingredients. Gradually, your diet will become healthier and more delicious. Start slow and make changes to your eating habits over time. Trying to make your diet healthy overnight isn’t realistic or smart.  Changing everything at once usually leads to cheating or giving up on your new eating plan. Make small steps, like adding a salad (full of different color vegetables) to your diet once a day or switching from butter to olive oil when cooking.  As your small changes become habit, you can continue to add more healthy choices to your diet.
Here are some tips for choosing healthy foods:
  • ·         Fresh vegetables are the core of a healthy diet. Studies have shown that vegan’s tend to live a longer life than non-vegan’s. Use vegetables to replace meat and processed foods.
  • ·         Skinless white meat is generally better choice than red meat.
  • ·         Egg whites are a healthy choice to fulfill your body’s protein needs. But remember, only the egg whites and not the egg yolk (The yellow thing).
  • ·         Avoid eating junk foods. Ex. Pizza, Cheese Burgers, etc…
  The point is, Don't commit suicide by starving yourself to death. Eat Bitches. Eat.
