My Thoughts About The Nike Boycott

Once again a media story has gone viral causing tons of emotional reactions which has lead to illogical thoughts. You have some boycotting Nike because of someone they choose to have endorse their product, even though that person has been on their payroll for years. Then you have others mad that some are boycotting Nike because they endorse a certain person. Meanwhile you have a large corporation profiting from all of it. A corporation that has such a stronghold influence on western culture clothing that it is hard to escape their products. A corporation that on one end will have someone market their apparel who is against social injustice and oppression, while at the same time offer below average living wages for their workers overseas in their factories. They irony and hypocrisy of it all is amusing. And more funny is the hypocrisy of myself knowing this and I still have Nike shoes in my closet as I type this blog. This sums up the reality of the society we live in.

The First Time You meet

There’s nothing like the first time you meet someone new. That moment when you strike up a conversation and you begin to pick each other’s brains. Like talking to someone new that you are attracted to. The nervousness and anxiety of asking the right questions and trying your hardest not to be that awkward ass person you know you are lol. The thrill of really getting to know someone by asking those real questions. The questions that make a person think hard about their response. Not because they are being careful with their words but because they are not used to someone asking them a serious question. They are not used to having a real meaningful conversation. It’s in those moments that you know something different, unique, and special is happening. In that moment you know a new and real connection is being made. So when you meet that new friend or love interest skip the bullshit questions and ask the real ones. Really get to know someone.

Thought of the Day

When an artist, rapper, singer, or some other type of entertainer expresses their inner emotions we applaud them. We praise them for their courage to speak about their private feelings. But when the average person does it they are looked at as weak or simply trying to seek attention. Think about that….
