Hard Knock Life of the Day:
YouTuber fatos21 brings us this FAIL compilation illustrating how dangerous being a television news reporter can be.
Dan Menendez the “Juggler Extraordinaire” shows off his precision juggling skills by playing a song on the piano without laying a finger on the keys. … not sure if an amazing skill or just a weird YouTube video.

“It’s when you hold eye contact for that second too long or maybe the way you laugh. It sets off a flash and our memories take a picture of who we are at that point when we first know “This is love.” And we clutch that picture to our hearts because we expect each other to always be the people in that picture. But people change. People aren’t pictures. And you can either take a new picture or throw the old one away.”
“There is no pleasure in having nothing to do. The fun is in having lots to do and not doing it.”
…I could be a little kid again. I’ve noticed that the more stressed I am, the more I wish that this was actually a possibility. I’m sitting here procrastinating from studying (what a surprise) and as I let my mind go blank, all my thoughts seem to turn to my childhood.
Maybe part of it is the fact that it’s finally sort of fall. I love fall. And as a kid I loved fall. I loved helping my parents rake our front yard, only to jump in the huge pile with my neighbors later that day. I remember playing catch with my dad and little brother in the basement on cold winter nights. I remember celebrating New Year’s at 9pm because I was too tired to stay up.
What bothers me the most is that when I was little all I wanted to do was grow up. I couldn’t wait until I was old enough to stay up late and do “big kid things.” But now that I’m there, those big kid things don’t seem so great. I mean don’t get me wrong - I do enjoy the freedom that comes with being “grown up.” I like being able to go where I want, when I want. I like being able to drive myself places. I like being to do things for myself.
That being said, I wish I could get rid of some of the responsibilities and tough life lessons that come with being a grown up. I do realizes that all the hardships I face are nothing in the grand scheme of things, but I find myself wishing I could go back to the simplicity of childhood. I just wanna have a picnic lunch in the backyard, color a whole coloring book, play outside til it’s too dark to see, sit on the front step and count the cars until my dad comes home. If only.
