What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay! The title is based off of what I heard in Sound FX of Super Bowl XLV between Referee Walt Anderson and Super Bowl MVP QB Aaron Rodgers. Walt was telling Aaron why he listened to all players and I agree with him. In general, I believe that listening can help so many problems and kudos to you Walt for listening to all players!!!! Even if a call goes against my Ravens, after calming down, I usually think its fair. Hope to see you officiating in Baltimore this season! As I was saying, I believe through listening to everyone we can really make a positive difference. Every morning working at the Campus Store/Daily Grind, I strive to listen to customers to offer positive advice and to remember there orders. Just the other day, I cheered some people who came off a bad morning. Just by listening to their problems and cheering them up with inspirational quotes and saying that I thank them for being them, really went a long way. They came back a few days later to thank me for cheering them up and listening. In fact listening will help break barriers. On the Metro, I talked to different people and cheered them up. By listening to their stories and respecting them, they listened to my advice!!! I even cheered up a police officer by thanking him for keeping us safe. One of the best things I enjoy in life is meeting new folks. Whether it be on the train, at college, on the bus, in the neighborhood, at the restaurant, or anywhere in person, I meet someone awesome all the time! So listen and be yourself. There are plenty of awesome people out there.
Also I make it a goal to learn something new everyday. Learning doesn’t have to be so damn hard folks!!! In fact learning can be fun! Call me a minority, a nerd, or crazy, but I always enjoyed the first day of school. A chance to start fresh and learn new things. That way I can find better ways to make a positive difference in the world. That helps one keep moving down the river of life. So folks with some positive connections to life, learning ain’t so bad.
Listen and then you will learn from others! And Walt keep doing what you do!
Carpe Diem and YO YO YOLO
