This is real life

World’s Toughest Job

Today we dedicate a day to thanking our Mums for everything they have done for us.

This interview makes us realise just how tough it is to be a Mum.

Look Up

Is technology making us lonelier than we ever have been before?

This is a video written and narrated by Gary Turk that has quickly reached 20 million views You Tube within 1 week of posting.

Without the help of social media Gary’s message would not be heard by many of us. A message that makes us realise there could be opportunities missed by relying on technology too much.

Technology and social media is part of our everyday lives. Communication is so much easier when we are connected online. We use it to keep in touch with loved ones inter-state or overseas. Smart phone apps allows us to socialise easier when it comes to organising catch-up with friends, decide on a meeting spot or the next restaurant to eat at.

We have access to information at our fingertips and we can search things up without having to ask anybody for the answers. Perhaps lost without access to data and Google maps to tell us where to go.

However, it’s true, as we silently stare into a screen, poke and swipe at it – we are spending the time alone and doing it in isolation. Technology does play a big part in our everyday lives, but don’t be deluded that you are ‘connecting’ with people this way.

Maybe it is time to ‘Look Up’ and see what’s around you.

Favorite Internet Kids

Since the ‘Charlie bit my finger’ kids or David after the dentist I haven’t noticed any crazy viral videos of funny kids until now.

These two are so adorable!!!

This kid is trying to make his case for a cupcake – “Linda Linda Linda – Listen Linda!”

These Korean parents are trying to teach their daughter how to say NO to strangers.

Our Generation – A Poem Written by a 14 Year Old Boy

I found this poem published on the Elite Daily website that was pretty amazing.

Not only that it was written by a 14 year old boy, but that it was inspirational and empowering for our generation of thought leaders.

People have so many different passions in life. It starts with building awareness of ideas that are starting in the think tank and encouraging these ideas and help them grow.

We will inherently want to plan and create a future better for ourselves if we keep putting positive messages out there. 🙂

Our Generation –  Written by Jordan Nichols

Our generation will be known for nothing.
Never will anybody say,
We were the peak of mankind.
That is wrong, the truth is
Our generation was a failure.
Thinking that
We actually succeeded
Is a waste. And we know
Living only for money and power
Is the way to go.
Being loving, respectful, and kind
Is a dumb thing to do.
Forgetting about that time,
Will not be easy, but we will try.
Changing our world for the better
Is something we never did.
Giving up
Was how we handled our problems.
Working hard
Was a joke.
We knew that
People thought we couldn’t come back
That might be true,
Unless we turn things around
(Read from bottom to top now)


Oh, what a plot twist! Here’s what it reads when it’s reversed from the bottom to the top:

Unless we turn things around
That might be true,
People thought we couldn’t come back
We knew that
Was a joke.
Working hard
Was how we handled our problems.
Giving up
Is something we never did.
Changing our world for the better
Will not be easy, but we will try.
Forgetting about that time,
Is a dumb thing to do.
Being loving, respectful, and kind
Is the way to go.
Living only for money and power
Is a waste. And we know
We actually succeeded
Thinking that
Our generation was a failure.
That is wrong, the truth is
We were the peak of mankind.
Never will anybody say,
Our generation will be known for nothing.
