Advice, Future, and Ironic: eggrollie art has been hard lately but i made this banana today and its probably the height of my ability and i am ready novw a guest speaker in one of my classes recently gave some of the best advice I have ever received… 1. let curiosity be your compass - think about what you’re motivated to do, your affinity, your aspirations. what are the core reasons for your motivation? 2. impact is everything - if everything works out exactly as expected, why does it matter? what will you learn or change? 3. be James Bond - expose the side of yourself that will be received best. you don’t need to reveal everything about yourself upfront. 4. create strong partnerships - build a wise council. you only need three people: one who is a few steps ahead of you or where you want to be in the future, one who is progressing at the same pace as you, and one who is behind you but has experienced more. 5. to make space for what matters, you have to say no - we aren’t self-aware enough to know our breaking point before we reach it, so don’t be afraid to pass on some things. 6. create meaningful time - bingeing is not productive. establish clear morning rituals and practice contingency management. a slow and steady schedule is best. 7.when you rush from A to B, you miss everything in between - slow down and forget about your destination. take time to appreciate the path you’re on. 8.”the chief enemy of creativity is good sense” - be creative. just don’t lose touch with your common sense. 9.it’s supposed to be fun most of the time or something’s wrong - there will be spontaneous emotional breakdowns and seemingly impassible obstacles, but enjoy the journey of life billsimportantposts

College, Destiny, and Drake: Drake Has A Heart of Gold: Donates Thousands Of Dollars to People in Need @balleralert Drake Has A Heart of Gold: Donates Thousands Of Dollars to People in Need- Blogged by @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The “6 God” Drake has been very busy lately. While filming his latest music video, “God's Plan” in Miami, he went on a good samaritan giveaway spree. First, he gave a check to a women’s homeless shelter for $50,000, according to CapitalXtra. Then the Canadian artist gave $50,000 to 20-year-old Destiny James, a first-generation college student, raised by a single parent in a low-income area. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ James wrote on Instagram, “I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I’ve been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time. Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I’ve worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!. You don’t understand what this means to me! I would’ve never imagined this happening to me. I’m just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God, I thank you. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Champagnepapi wasn't done yet though. He also gave $25,000 to the Miami area high school, where he filmed part of his video and a collection of OVO-designed school uniforms to Miami Senior High School. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Later on, he even paid for everyone’s groceries at Sabor Tropical Supermarket, totaling to about $50,000 in food. Customer Guille Deza told E! News, “No one knew he was coming at all, we just came to do groceries. Cameras were being set up so we were all wondering what was to happen.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Deza, the rumor is that the giveaways will be part of the “God’s Plan” video.
