Whenever i listen to disney songs while doing homework i get extremely distracted because when i get down to business, i end up trying to defeat the Huns by becoming a man who is as swift as a coursing river, with all the force of a great typhoon and all the strength of a raging fire, instead of finishing my twelve page research paper.
When your boss starts a meeting by saying “Let’s get down to business”, the first five minutes of it will be spent singing the entire song in your mind.
"The goal is not to turn kids into your kind of adult, but rather, better adults than you have been. Progress happens because new generations grow and develop and become better than the previous ones.”
From Adora Svitak’s talk “What adults can learn from kids.” In her talk, Adora makes a case for why adults shouldn’t underestimate kids. And they shouldn’t. Kids are doing amazing things. Let’s just take a second to think about how Adora organized her first TEDxYouth event when she was just 12.
This weekend, young people around the world are attending, organizing, speaking at, and watching TEDxYouthDay events — TEDx events dedicated to the ingenuity of kids worldwide. Every year we’re taken aback by the amazing things that come out of these events, and we think you should be, too. Find a TEDxYouthDay event near you to attend or watch live online here.

That’s a really awesome talk. Inspirational!
As many of you know, the Philippines were absolutely ravaged this past weekend by Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiya). The death toll is expected to surpass 10,000. Beyond that, millions are without food, water, shelter. A state of calamity has been issued. Things are grim.
What many of you may NOT know, is that the Philippines is the second-largest readership of JL8, only surpassed by the US. Not that I wouldn’t step in for a tragedy of this magnitude regardless, but as such, it hits a little bit closer to home than most.
All that being said, I’m offering a wallpaper/cover photo bundle pack at my webstore for purchase. All proceeds will be donated to UNICEF Philippines, whose goal is to primarily assist the children affected by this disaster.
Obviously, the timeline photo has been posted up right here, and you can use it if you want without donating anything, and that’s fine. If you do, though, I ask that you include the information for donating when you do post it, so that others may find a way to give.
The wallpaper and cover photo can be found here.
Also, the original art will be on auction here.
