Wanna Know Wednesday: The Future……Up 4 Discussion…..

From JSin.….

How many of you have seen the TV show FlashFoward?  I saw it for the first time not too long ago.  The focus and premise of the show is quite interesting.  After an inexplicable event occurs everyone in the world gets a glimpse of their future.

After watching a few episodes of the show it got me thinking: Would I want to get a glimpse of my future?  If so, how far into the future?  And why would I want to know at all?

All at once I had a ton of questions and very few answers.  Being the inquisitive person that I am I couldn’t resist asking others what they would want to do and why?

Some people I asked said they wouldn’t want a glimpse at their future.  Others were excited about seeing their future.  Me personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing a glimpse of my future.  It’d be interesting to see what types of twists and turns my life would take.

Today I pose the same question to you.  Feel free to submit your answer in the poll below and further explain your choice in a comment.

Thanks and have a very blessed day!

Ooops!…Here's Bill Clinton…again…….

The ex-President is taking up Blanche Lincoln’s cause…

He’s going back to Arkansas to campaign for her….

She’s in trouble….

I don’t think one person that he camapigned for (Including his wife ) has won anything…..

Former President Bill Clinton returned to his home state Friday to help a beleaguered ally and delivered a broadside against some of the most powerful interests in the Democratic Party.

Using unusually vivid language to describe the threat against Sen. Blanche Lincoln, Clinton urged the voters who nurtured his career to resist outside forces bent on making an example out of the two-term Democratic incumbent.

He pounded the podium with Lincoln at his side, warning that national liberal and labor groups wanted to make her a “poster child” in the June 8 Senate run-off to send a message about what happens to Democrats who don’t toe the party line.

“This is about using you and manipulating your votes to terrify members of Congress and members of the Senate,” Clinton said in the gym of a small historically black college here.

Clinton didn’t mention Lt. Gov. Bill Halter’s name – the lieutenant governor worked in the former president’s administration – or single out any specific liberal groups. But he didn’t need to.

Wise Words: RISE & SMILE….From Up 4 Discussion…..

From JSin.….

I know I write a lot of discussions on relationships, but I would like to do something different.  Not only would I like to assist my readers with reflecting on their relationships and friendships, but I want to inspire and motivate each of you.

  • I want YOU to know that you can achieve and conquer ANYTHINGthat you set out to.
  • I want YOU to be Fearless, Strong and Determined.
  • I want YOU to smile, be happy and LOVE LIFE!

Therefore, each week I will post a quote, some inspiring words or possibly a story to EmpowerMotivate and Inspire YOU.

*RISE & SMILE*

“We must define ourselves by the best that is in us, not the worst that has been done to us.”

– Edward Lewis, Publisher, Essence Magazine

It is important for us to step out of our comfort zone.  Yes, it may be scary or uncomfortable outside of it, but we cannot allow our own fears, guilt, unworthiness, depression or anger to hinder us from realizing our dreams and accomplishing our goals.

Just My Opinion: The Kid Factor…….Up 4 Discusssion……

From JSin.……

As the majority of my readers know, I prefer to take a neutral position in the majority of my discussions.  This time around I’ll be doing something a little different.  This discussion will be based solely on my opinion.  As such, I encourage you, the reader, to comment and share your personal opinions on the topic as well.

Kids.  That’s what this discussion is mainly about.  More specifically, it’s about dating individuals who have kids.  In my opinion, I believe that men and women have completely different views when it comes to dating someone who has a child.  Plain and simple, I think that men are more inclined to date a woman who has a child than a woman is to date a man with a child.

‘Why?’ you ask?  Allow me to explain.

The Preference

Let’s get one thing clear, whether a man or a woman is willing to date someone with a child, the fact remains that it is likely far from their ideal situation.  The truth is most single people would prefer to date or get involved in a relationship with another single person, who does not have any children.  Yet, sometimes we happen to meet a person who has many of the qualities that we prefer and is exactly the type of person that we would like to get involved with.  BUT…they have a kid.  Is it the end of the world? No! Far from it.   But in most cases it is or can be a minor setback.

Me & My Child

Let me explain what I mean when I say ‘setback’…..

Wanna Known Wednesday: Men, Women & Video Games……For Up 4 Discussion….

From JSin.….

Welcome!

It’s Wednesday; and as usual we have a great discussion for you.  The discussion this week is focused on three things: Men, Women & Video Games.

Video Games

It’s no secret that video games have become a large form of entertainment in the U.S.  In 2009 alone video game sales accounted for more that $25 BILLION!  With the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 & Wii on the market gamers have a lot of variety when it comes down to finding a video game or system that they enjoy most.  For those of you who play video games you will most likely be aware of how popular multiplayer and co-op games have become.  In today’s society, the most fun is to be had by playing video games with others.  Whether they be friends, family, strangers or even a spouse or partner.

Men

Face it, second to sports (and women, of course, ;) ) men love their video games.  There is so much fun to be had sitting in front of that big screen TV with a controller in hand.  One minute he can be shooting hoops, then racing his dream car or simply blowing the competition away with the biggest gun he can get his player’s hands on.  Whatever he desires to do there is likely to be a game on the market that will allow him to do it.  As fun as video games may be not every man plays or even enjoys them, but there is a large number of men who do.

Women

When it comes to women and video games they typically fit into one of three categories:

  1. They HATE video games
  2. They LOVE video games; or
  3. They don’t hate or love video games but they do enjoy playing that one game they really like every now and then

Sounds simple, right?
