This is a video of The BBoy Akademics in 2007 I believe and believe it or not but the first guy who was breakdancing is my boyfriend, before we got together and he was on the chubby side. Well anyways after watching this clip I was like damn, these guys must really put in time for this, they must be really dedicated to this, just look at their moves, I sure can’t any of that. I asked my boyfriend how much time he put in and I was shocked at his answer, he told me that before when breakdancing was his passion, he used to practice 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week and he did that for about 3 years straight. Breakdancing isn’t easy, it takes time, efforts, and of course strength in order to do it, talk about passion and dedication.
I keep my paint brush with me
Wherever I may go,
In case I need to cover up
So the real me doesn’t show
I’m so afraid to show you me,
Afraid of what you’ll do—that
You might laugh or say mean things.
I’m afraid I might lose you.
I’l dike to remove all my paint coats
To show you the real, true me,
But I want you to try and understand,
I need you to accept what you see.
So if you’ll be patient and close your eyes.
I’ll strip off all my coats real slow.
Please understand how much it hurts
To let the real me show.
Now my coats are all stripped off.
I feel naked, bare and cold,
And if you still love me with all that you see,
You are my friend, pure as gold.
I need to save my paint brush, though,
And hold it in my hand,
I want to keep it handy
In case somebody doesn’t understand.
So please protect me, my dear friend
And thanks for loving me true,
But please let me keep my paintbrush with me
Until I love me, too.

This poem is about how women hide their imperfections through make-up. Everybody has something to hide, to cover up their insecurities. It’s also covering up their past, there’s something that happen that they’re afraid of getting out, if it gets out they are then afraid of their friends not understanding, they too will leave. When the one who is afraid finally lets her friends or someone special in, she is showing off her true, special, unique self hoping, praying that she wouldn’t get rejected, once accepted she explains that she still needs to hide her true self from other people just in case they themselves don’t understand where she’s coming from.
After reading this poem, I really liked it. It’s about someone who wears makeup to feel beautiful about their self. The way society is today, it makes women feel like the only way to be beautiful is to wear makeup to cover up “imperfections.” Women should never feel so ugly that they have to hide their true selves behind foundation, mascara, and rouge. Towards the end of the poem, she finally takes her makeup off to see if the person she is with will truly love her for her, but she says that she will need to save her paint brush in case someone doesn’t understand the way she looks and if that happens, she will hide behind the makeup again.
This is a picture of one of the rabbits I used to have, Nala, she was a lion headed rabbit, that’s right, a LION HEADED RABBIT. She had the long coat and coat color and mane like a lion, but since it’s a she, she’s more like a lioness. After taking this picture and looking at it for a few minutes, I realized something; I realized Nala is also acting like a lion. She’s down low in the “tall” grass, blending in with her surroundings, listening to what’s happening, watching and waiting. Also if you look closely to her eyes and posture, she looks confident in herself. Nala was truly an amazing rabbit.
I have to agree with ginalippett, this picture does signify the importance of hope and how everyone should stay hopeful. When doing activities/events in life at a fast pace, driving, you only can go “one way,” and that is in the direction you are going which yes has Hope but you normally don’t see it. But when you slow down, as in walking, Hope is in multiple directions, you just need to take the time to recuperate and refresh to see it. In difficult times you don’t see the brighter side or have faith because you’re caught up in the situation, but if you take the time to relax you realize you do have faith and you use it. This picture is indeed inspirational to all.
This picture was posted to signify the importance of hope and how you should stay forever hopeful. When you are faced with hard times or put in situations when you feel helpless, there will always be a way to make things better. As long as you believe and have faith, you can improve your situation. The one-way sign is pointing in the direction of hope. I think whoever took this picture was trying to say that there is only one way to hope and that route is the only way you can go. This picture should give inspiration to people who need a positive light in their lives.
I liked this video; it was truly amazing and creative. This was a creative way to get more people to walk up the stairs rather than taking the escalator. The guys who came up with this plan really did have to out in the time and effort in making it happen. They saw that there was a problem and set out to fix it, they turned the stair case into a piano. The most amazing part was the fact that it actually worked, in watching this video, I saw that more people were taking the stair case rather than the escalator. They achieved their goal. I wish they did something like that in the US.
I think this video is pretty cool. I actually wish I could do it, because I can see myself running up in down those stairs trying to create my own masterpiece. :-) I think the person that posted this video was trying to show how something out of the ordinary can catch people’s attention, and can also influence their choices. I think it also shows how weird things hapeen all the tie, and no one really thinks about it. They just went right ahead and played on the piano, but didn’t really wonder why it was there or who put it there. I’m not going to lie, I would totally fall into the category of only taking the stairs because the piano was on the stair steps, otherwise I would be all over the escaltor. This will now make me think twice next time I’m in the escalator vs. stairs situation. (Which is also another point I think the vieo was trying to proove).
I think this idea of changing a stairway into piano steps is really cool. It’s very interesting how it made everyone-even the elderly people-want to take the stairs rather than the escalator. Choosing a busy subway entrance meant more and more people were going to stop and take the stairs. I noticed that it wasn’t in the U.S. though. It makes me wonder what would happen if a staircase like this one was in the U.S. Would the statistics of the U.S. being so unhealthy change? And how many people would ultimately be in better shape because of a piano staircase?

This is really cool. I used to play the piano when I was little so it kind of brings back memories. It’s a really creative commercial and I think that the type of people who would like this would also buy a volkswagon. The purpose of making this video was to capture the attention of a audience who would be a potential customer. I honestly think it would work. Instead of taking the escalator, or instead of choosing the typical car, you should take a different route like the piano stairs that symbolizes a volkswagon car.
Tell me and I forget; show me and I remember; involve me and I understand.

This quote is about being a leader and how it is important to be involved with your subjects to understand them, to get the main message. If someone just tells you about a subject or problem or situation, you’re going to forget, regardless. For example, telling you not to waste your food because there’s starving children in Africa. If they show you the starving children, you will remember to not waste your food and that’s because it impacted your way of thinking. If you get involved in the fight to feed Africa you’ll understand why there are starving children. That’s what makes a leader, you need to understand why you’re fighting or doing what it is you need to do, you need to have a sense of purpose.
My boyfriend told me about a group of guys called Mega64, and how they make fun of video games. He told me that I had to look them up and he promises that I wouldn’t regret it. Well I did and I surely was cracking up. Well I came across this video, Mega64 Frogger, and I was amazed at the dedication these guys had; they literately portrayed the game perfectly. The object of the game is to cross the street without getting ran over while being a frog. I came up with the following reasons why they seem to be doing this: 1. They’re bored, 2. They love video games, or 3. They wanted to take their video game experience to the next level, meaning bring it to life. Whatever their true reason or reasons may be, it’s funny, entertaining, dangerous (sometimes), and original; these guys have guts to be doing this. If you’re a gamer, you should definitely check out their other videos!
This is actually an interesting video; I wasn’t expecting to see the car mysteriously appear on the other side of the fence like that. This video shows us how unexplainable things happen, in the real world, one minute you’re chasing a high speed car, whose swerving uncontrollably and still manages to remain in control of the car, then all of a sudden when you think you have him cornered, he pulls a fast one on you. In the end, the bad guy wins and the good guys lose. If you kind of think about it, it’s somewhat like paranormal activity, something happens and you don’t have an explanation for it.
I decided to post this video because it’s getting close to Halloween and I wanted to post something scary. I’ve seen this video several times and for those who have not seen it, enjoy. I think what the author is trying to portray is that some things can be very unnatural and are not easy to explain. It’s weird that the person driving was driving so crazy and was still able to control the car. You would think that all the swerving and jerking of the car would cause the driver to lose control, but he never did. I’m not sure if anyone else noticed it, but i most certainly did. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this video and Happy Halloween!!!
This song, La La Land by Demi Lovato, is saying that we should be who we want to be and we shouldn’t change just because someone else tells us to. We should be the person we want to be, not some fake person, we are then lying to ourselves. For example, we may not want to be that supermodel, but we sure do love to eat McDonalds. We shouldn’t be afraid to mix and match our clothes to make something unique. We shouldn’t change. We should stay the same, we should be proud of who we are, not wanting to be that person other people want us to be.
This is the most amazing wedding ever! I’m seriously jealous now; I want my wedding to be as creative as theirs. I have to agree with both composingconnections and kristas-09, that is the most unique wedding; Jill and Kevin put some serious hard work planning the whole thing. I also love how their friends and family, the bride’s maids and groom’s men, went along to make it truly a special day for them two. I also liked the song they choose to play, Forever by Chris Brown, the title itself is telling us they they’re going to be together forever. When you actually look up the lyrics for the song and read it, you’re like wow this makes the perfect wedding song. The song is about being able to trust him and for him making that one night, the wedding, truly memorable for her. They both have been waiting their whole life for that one moment, that they would marry someone truly amazing, someone who would love them for who they are.
I agree with kristas-09 that this video is a lot of fun. I like how they managed to keep a certain feeling of spontaneity despite its obvious pre-plannededness. Anymore, people spend so much money on their weddings, it really should be a celebration that is special to the couple. Here, they’ve managed to take the old tradition of “walking down” the aisle and make it their own. Instead of going through the motions of a tradition they had no part in making, they found a way to be truly original. Also, I really like that the couple approaches the “altar” together. There’s a very nice sentiment to the idea of going into this whole married thing together (instead of one person being “given away” to another).
This video is so hilarious! It would be so much fun to get married like that. I bet they had a ton of fun and the families watching really looked like they enjoyed it. They were all clapping along and having a great time. I like that they decided to do that for their entrance. It is very unique and fun. It is not traditional and that makes it even more exciting. I think that this is what the couple wanted to do to stick out and really have a good time getting married. it was a very cute idea and I loved it. Maybe one day I will get married like that.
