5x NBA Champion, turned TNT broadcaster, Steve Kerr:

"You know who used to go for every block in transition was Craig Ehlo.  He’d go for it every time, and he kept getting dunked on.  Finally, we said, ‘Craig, why do you keep going for it?  You’re going to end up on all these posters.’ 

He goes, ‘My only chance to be on a poster.’”

My conversation with a Yale grad. He was accepted to every Ivy League, and is currently at one of the top occupations in Microsoft.

Him: I know right now, everything seems so unfair. You need to study, all to get compared with other people. Your future is dependent mostly on whether you go to this school, major in this thing, receive this much money, or get this job. I know. I was there, I was you. Studying my ass off for an easier life. You're told that everything right now is the most important, that you need to get As, go to a great college, have an amazing job, generate immense revenue, therefore become happy. But, there's just one thing that I failed to understand. And let me tell you, there are barely any things that I do not understand. Yet, I have no idea why I'm not happy. From a young age, you're told to take these steps and if you succeed, you'll reach happiness. It's not true. I've done every step every mother would tell her child to do, to become, but here I am, unhappy. After many years of trying to find where I went wrong, I realized that I had been looking in the completely wrong place.
Me: Then where do you look?
Him: At your friends. Your relationships. Your family. Your coworkers, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your social life. Many of the richest men in the world aren't happy, why? Because they spent all their lives trying to achieve happiness in the wrong place. You have a ton of money, great. But in the end, we're all sitting in our rocking chairs, and nobody cares who had the most money or who went to the best college. It's about who had the most fun. Who had the most people to look after them, who had the most to look after. The happiest are the ones that have people to call in times of trouble, the ones that had the time to spend with their family and feel all that love. That's what people lack! Love. When you're on your deathbed, everything doesn't matter anymore you see. You'd want people that love you to be around you, to be comforting you, to tell you about all the great things you did for people. You don't want to be alone, with what? A degree? Cash that will never be used? Nobody ever says "wow, I went to a great college and therefore I'm satisfied" in the end. Only the lucky ones get to say "wow, I was surrounded by love my whole life. My time on this earth was beautiful."
Me:
Him: But you know, I'm not telling you not to get into a great college or not to do any of the things society tells you to. Go for it, it pays off! It doesn't give you happiness but it takes a lot of stress off your shoulders. All I'm saying is don't make it your everything. If you don't get in somewhere good, don't stress about it. As long as you're okay with the people around you, you're going to be fine. I'm sure of it. Priorities change in the end. We're only people.

This week was beyond what I expected.  Glad my brothers and I made it out of a car accident alive.  Blessed and happy that my sister’s debut was a success. Really made a strong effort in staying on top of my school work this week. Made moves and it paid off.  First week of internship was reeeally good. Extremely blessed that I was given the opportunity to help the Hispanic Scholarship Fund make changes in their IT department. It’ll take time and effort but that’s what I’ll give! It amazes me that I work in a building, brush shoulders and have lunch with the CEO of this billion dollar non-profit organization.  The people there are really welcoming and help when we interns need it. This week = cool. hahaha

Extremely relieved that I got the scholarship and paid internship through STEM Advantage Program.  Just when I was about to give up on the program, it came through. I got the offer today, didn’t know if it was paid or unpaid, but I talked to my mentor and she said, great opportunities are made by great risks. I actually accepted the offer before I knew it was paid.  Truly blessed for this opportunity. The scholarship covers a years worth of tuition.  That’s 7G’s ! Damn, when did CSU’s get soo expensive.  Anyways, two jobs and a full-time student, God will only give you what he knows you can handle. I’ll take life by it’s horns and make piano keys out of them.
