It’s been literally months since I posted in this specific category. However, do not mistake the silence to mean that I have not been encountering young people who are changing the world. I still meet and interact with them every day, I just happened to let it slip my mind that I have a little space where I can share their amazing gifts with others. That being said, I do apologize for slacking in this category, and I will try to be much more consistent in it.
First things first, if you missed YoungInspiration 101 #8, which was my convo with photographer, Phylo, you can read it right here.
Onto today’s post, Derick and I take the same course in school, and we have become very good friends over the past two years. Late last year, I began to notice that he was becoming quite busy; you know how after class you just hang around for a few minutes to catch up with friends? Yea, well, he would be in very much of a hurry to accomplish some project outside of school. After a little while, he explained to me that he had began to venture into his passion; farming, and was over-seeing some agricultural projects, which, I may add, have been quite a success. I have seen his hustle grow to a point that he even got to be featured in a magazine very recently (*standing ovation please!!*). Enough intro, let’s hear it from the man himself below: Continue reading “YOUNG INSPIRATION 101 #9”
Sometime back, I went out to play with our puppies. I was wearing slippers. I had a little fun with them, then I decided to go back to the house. As I was leaving, I realized that one slipper was quite heavy, and on checking under to see what was there, what I dreaded the most turned out to be true; DOG POOP!

It’s been a little while, so I am going to get straight into it. This month, I have found myself learning a lot about patience, and different situations where you need to practice it; so I will be highlighting a few of them, as I also share with you my photography portfolio for March. In this portfolio, I will be sharing some of the portraits that I have taken, mostly of family (all but one were taken this year). Basically, this is a sort of two-in-one type of blog post. Enjoy!

Hello! HAPPY NEW MONTH!
I am sure we have all heard the statement, “I am doing this for him or for her,” quite a number of times. If you think about it in a very basic perspective, one of the sweetest things or the highest form of love is to change yourself for a person. To cut your hair, change your wardrobe, completely stop a toxic habit or addiction, transform yourself, buy a new car, or basically to take any big step for someone, can be considered one of the greatest proof of love, but really, is it?

A few weeks ago, I was watching a video on a channel that I really love, known as Life Thru My Lens, and he was talking about how most filmmakers feel that, to make an amazing cinematic sequence, one needs to have travelled to some amazing place like Iceland or Hawaii, which is not true. Jonah (from Life Thru My Lens) went on to say that, you can make a dope cinematic sequence from a very basic day or surrounding, and he even shared a short cinematic sequence that he had made right there at his small hometown. He finished by saying (paraphrased), ‘IF YOU CAN TURN NOTHING INTO SOMETHING, THEN YOU CAN MAKE SOMETHING BECOME EVEN MORE AMAZING!’

HAPPY NEW MONTH!!
Let me ask you something; have you ever talked with someone and connected? Not just connected but like, really connected? Where you have these insanely deep conversations? It could be about deep stuff, like what the meaning of life is, but it could also be about very basic things. The conversation, regardless of the topic, is deep, and it’s almost as if it has sparks flying out of it. Do you ever experience that with anyone? Continue reading “FIND YOUR PEOPLE, AND LOVE THEM HARD.”
REAL QUICK: The ‘design’ (due to lack of a better word at the moment) of this post is inspired by Diana Tyler, who uses several gifs in her posts and inspired me to begin doing the same!
Some of my friends and I were having a very heated talk (you know, the kind where you end up standing in the middle of the road, all of you shouting at the top of your voices trying to make a point); There is this person, let’s call them A, who had a certain message to give to another person, B. Person A was delivering that message to person B in front of a relatively huge crowd of people, my friends and I included. However, in the process of doing so, person A chose some very very nasty words (and expressions) to use to deliver this message.
