It seems for a while we’ve been seeing prank and challenge videos plastered all over the Internet. The pranks seem to be growing intense in nature for example, one prank video that I was watching dealt with a guy pretending to be dead when his girlfriend came home. Once the prank was over, the she would be so mad to the point of ending the relationship. It seems as if these pranks that are going viral over the web (especially YouTube) are not just you’re average pranks anymore and after each one, the victim of the prank plots a revenge on the prankster that is meant to be worse than the one they did on them initially.
The thing that i notice is that the people involved in the pranks fall for the pranks (well, they seem to fall for it) most of the time. I’m thinking to myself, if they’ve been pranking each other all this time, won’t they be kind of expecting it when someone does something unusual? That’s just me. Maybe they know its a prank and just doing it for views or popularity.
As for the challenges, the most recent one, the mannequin challenge is going viral as well with a lot of people doing it from teens at school to news anchors, celebs and even prison staff (posed as inmates?) being involved. I actually kind of like this challenge because know one gets hurt in the process. I guess, in a way these things help take our minds off the other negative stuff going on in the country right now.
Here’s a video from Trent Shelton. A motivational speaker. He brings up a lot of valid points about how to deal with the uncertainty of the election.
As most of us know by know we have elected our 45th president of the United States. The person elected obviously is not admired by a lot of people including his own political party. The vocal opinions and insults spewed between candidates went on for months before finally coming to a close before we as a nation went to the polls to make out choice for the next POTUS.
There already have been major protest happening today in some of the major cities in the US, including the one closest to me, which is Chicago. The numerous news reports throughout the day showed hundred maybe thousands of people taking to the streets near Trump Tower near the river. Some say , what’s the point of protesting now since he’s already elected? Which I think is a good question because it’s not going to change anything. Don’t get me wrong, I understand some of the anger, but it’s not solving anything but creating more problems.
Now that he’s elected, we should at least wait until he gets in office and see what he does, like the anti Obama supporters did when he was elected. I understand he said a lot of bad things about people and did some dishonest things as a businessman but unfortunately it’s not going to keep him from the office, well at least for right now.
Once he gets in and still show his true colors and continue to do these things, then there’s a chance that he will be able to be removed as President. I am not a supporter of his, but I am a follower of God and I believe he knows what he’s doing in this scenario. It may not make any sense right now, but things will come to the light soon and we will see things clearly. So I am hoping and praying that we become united for the time being and just be patient (its hard, but we have to do it) and see what happens………
I’ve been going through some pretty interesting things in the last couple of years in my life. I seemed as if almost every aspect of my life was falling apart right in front of my eyes. I started to believe that I was cursed at one point because it seemed never-ending.
I come to learn that God has you go through things for a reason,why? No one knows but him. It may seem like hell when you’re going through things, but in the long run, he is working it out in your favor even if it doesnt seem like it. I had to learn to trust him through all of it, even though it felt impossible at the time.
It was even times were I wanted to give up, but i didnt. There must be a reason that God is keeping me here on this earth and its up to me to find out what it is and live it out. So, when you are experience lifes trails, just keep in mind that he is behind the scenes working in your favor even though it doesnt feel like it at the moment.
As most of you know by now the candidates we have to choose from is not all that beneficial. One is an arrogant, loud, egotistical nut case, the other is a typical vote for me and I’ll promise you the world type of politician.
My grandparents on both sides of the family always instilled in me what the importance of voting is due to what they and the ones before them had to go through just to get the privilege. So in a sense I feel I have the civic duty to vote even though I don’t feel assured with my choices.
By me being a Christian, I feel like I have to use those morals and values I learned as being a Christian to select the right person for the job. With the choices with have now, that seems almost impossible. I just Don’t see any Christian values being demonstrated at all in non of the campaigns, debates, public sessions, etc. just a bunch of verbal punches being thrown between the two like middle school kids instead of grown adults that’s going to eventually run this country.
I know people who is going to vote, not because of what the person stand for or good policies, but just to keep the other out of office. Which is understandable if your concerned with that person taking us into a world war or turning the USA into a 3 world country.
By belief right now is no matter who I pick, the country as well as the world is heading towards Destruction. I believe this because things where get worse before they get better as the bible hints us to. So, no matter who wins, I am praying to God to take care of our country. Not a human that has so much power. Something to thing about.
