“The first impression is the last impression; you never get a second chance to make a first impression.”

-Unknown-

Sometimes I wonder who I am. I know I’m not the only one who has wondered this. Everyone has at some point in their life. If you say to yourself, “No, I’ve never wondered that,” then I will call BS on you right now. You may not like me calling you out but someone has to. When I think about who I am, I shut down for a while. I will not have motivation to do much. I shut down both emotionally and socially. Don’t ask me why. Just don’t.

But the reason I’m writing this post isn’t because of who I am. It’s about who you are. So I ask you, “who are you?” Are you a friend? A stranger? An acquaintance? A potential partner? Who knows. I’d like to share a couple of Youtube videos with you. I find they are super inspirational and maybe it will make you look inside yourself as well. Their is a men’s and women’s version of the video. I will post each separately.

So guys, let’s take a moment to reflect on what we just saw. We saw a very powerful movie that gives us the power to move on. Something that motivates us right? By telling ourselves this we really get a sense of what we want in life. I hate seeing people unhappy. I know what it’s like to be rejected. To be hurt. What I do know however is that guys, you are strong, you are brave, you are capable of accomplishing much more than you know. You just have to have the confidence to see it. Sometimes it takes time to build up. Sometimes it can be shattered in the blink of an eye because of a decision you made. Wether that be a good one that causes you great rewards or one that you regret for the rest of your life.

But, that’s just it. It’s just a decision. If it’s the wrong one then learn from it and move on. That’s all anyone can do. And to everyone out there reading this I suggest you listen to this one thing I’m going to say. If nothing else, then this is what you should listen to. Some of you will have either heard or said or done both, but for those of you who haven’t here it is: a true friend is someone who has your back. Someone you can count on. Someone who when you need him or her most will be their for you no matter what. A true friend is someone who is understanding…That’s right understanding. You may not agree on everything. You may argue, fight even lose contact with each other for a while. But I bet that they return after a while. For everyone this differs to person to person but they should return in time. If they don’t then I’m either really sorry or they aren’t a true friend.

As for you Ladies:

I may not be a woman but I do know an awful lot about relationships. Since I have always been a friendly guy, my friends would often come to me for advice. You see I would often get both sides of the relationship story so I could usually piece together the complete truth and also give advice. It was quite simple actually. They come to me, I listen to them, I give them advice from things I picked up on over the course of many listening sessions. I became to many peoples almost like therapy agent. It’s funny actually. I have a wealth of knowledge but I just don’t know how to apply it.

Anyway to all women out there. Children, teenagers, adults, and elders I’d like to give you a shout out and say that you make our lives better. Maybe we don’t take you for granted as much as we should. I don’t know though honestly. But without you their would be no us honestly. (Let’s pretend we all know the sex talk however, for the sake of time and space.) Let me say that everything you see in this video is true. Every damn thing! And men, if you don’t like it *bleep* off! This is about them as much as it is about us.

You may be self conscious, doubting your worth, your prettiness, your part in society. We’ve all been their I have, may times. But I look at it like even if we aren’t on the top 10 list of hottest people out their. Looks aren’t based on everything. It’s the personality on the inside that makes us who we are. Looks would mean nothing if not for personality.

To Everyone: It doesn’t matter where you come from. Whether it’s Canada, USA, Japan, Nigeria, Russia, Sweden, Spain, Brazil, India, Guatemala and the other 190+ . It doesn’t matter what race you are. It doesn’t matter what your skin colour is. All that matters in the end is your personality.

Everyone out their is AWESOME! Don’t any of you forget it. You may not believe it but you are guys and gals. You bloody are!

For me personally? I can say I take pride in knowing my friends. I like to think I’m on good terms with my friends. Like stated above. We may argue, but I like to think that we can make up and continue on being friends. To any of my friends out there that I’ve hurt in the past or present, I would like to apologize from the bottom of my heart. Everything I said I said probably without thinking of the consequences. Maybe it was lack of sensitivity, or maybe it was me just trying to be funny. I don’t know. But please accept my apology. I will do better and I hope we can continue to be friends.

But that’s it for now guys, please comment below.

Cheers.

A New Design-

Posted: 11/11/2013 in Updates

Well I’d say today was extremely productive. I’ve spent most of the day updating profiles. Namely my LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Flickr, and Instagram. Now that all of these are updated I can focus on more pressing homework tomorrow. I focused today on updating every major profile I have. Once Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Flickr, and Instagram had been updated, I started focusing on my actual blogs. Tumblr, and WordPress.

First I focused on WordPress. My layout was plain and outdated. It was the layout called Motion. Picture attached below. *Note: This is just the basic layout without customization*

Anyway I figured it was time to change it up. Yes, the profile and everything wasn’t all that old but I wanted to make the profile more….me. That way it would feel more personable. Also this way I can connect more easily to my other profile sites. Because if you notice when you are on my profile you see the names of different websites. These are links to my other main profiles, like I explained earlier.

Once I had figured out the links and everything for the top I started thinking what would look good on the side bar. Then it hit me. My “About Me” and “Contact” section. So I inserted them there. This way they are accessible easily and people are more likely to click on them. Below the “Pages” tab I connected my Tumblr and Twitter feeds as well. This is a nice touch because I do use Twitter and Tumblr. Twitter way more and you will see that if you go to my Twitter page: @jophis23 I’ve surpassed the 2,000 (2,027) Tweet mark. (My goal between now and the end of 2013 is to hit 2,500, and between now and the end of the school year 3,000.) Anyway, I thought the layout this way was much better because it allowed people to view me better. Then at the bottom of the page you can see which blogs I follow, an archive log and a list of how many posts are in each category.

So that’s WordPress. Tumblr took a little bit longer. Click on the link at the top to go to my page. I had a Tumblr account awhile ago but then deleted it because I stopped using it. Then I realized that a lot of my friends had started using Tumblr again so I decided to check it out one more time. After setting it up I didn’t really do anything about it. Then I decided to post one day and I noticed that post garnered a lot of interest and kept updating with small quotes I liked. So after a few days of that I spent most of yesterday really looking into updating and making my blog look cool. I think I have succeeded in that. Pic attached below.Screen Shot 2013-11-11 at 11.31.12 AM

This what my screen looks like. If you look at the right side of my screen you can see my pages. My “Ask Me” and “Submit” sections. Below that you see all my connections to different profiles like on my WordPress account. Below that you see the people I’m following. You then scroll down a bit and you’ll get my Flickr, Twitter feed and my likes on Tumblr. It’s plain and simple but it’s easy on the eyes and catching as well.

I somehow today managed to figure out how to connect both Tumblr and WordPress together. So for all you Tumblr users. Please bear in mind that when you read these posts that might end up on my Tumblr page they are written from my WordPress account.

Hope you enjoy the new looks on the accounts. I look forward to hearing from all of you soon. Please feel free to make suggestions on how I can improve either of them. As well as suggestions on people who you think I should follow. Please don’t hesitate guys. I’m not a dangerous guy, I won’t bite….Hard. JK! Have a good one guys.
