Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I just got my first review for ABORT Magazine published. I got the chance to see, and critique Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience live at the Commodore. Here is the link to the article:
I look forward to more opportunities in the future, and appreciate the opportunity.

This is something I believe President Obama would endorse, and agree with.
I am proud to be part of a nation that doesn`t discriminate. Whether you are of different race, religion, or even what your sexual preference is. I am glad we have gone so far as to prosecute politicians that speak out against gays. Let`s keep this going towards the future. We are the future, we can make it end all together.
I am proud to be living in a nation that we created. A nation that the media could not prevent the growth of, that church could not defeat, not even got himself could stop it. This is a nation that support the homosexual community.
Many people tried to prevent this revolution. It took so many years to open up our minds into accepting the homosexual community, and so many wrong punishments towards it have now been abolished. NO LONGER can a man running for power in his country (Canada or America as I live in North America) say anything that belittles the homosexual community. If a politician or corporate, or banker say things like this now, they get in trouble.
The church has been against homosexuals for years. Long have they prosecuted men and women wrongly, but no longer. The majority of people in the world today are completely against this form of intolerance, and even better, most churches have homosexual members. And if any church was notorious for being against homosexuality, it would be on the hot seat as well and would soon change, or fall by the way side.
This has been a long movement towards the future. I believe as we move forward we will gain much more acceptance of each other as a united human race one day. They call it gay pride, well I may not be gay, but I am damn proud to live in a nation that is accepting and supportive of the homosexual community. It has been a step in the right direction, now let’s keep going people!

People often talk about how hard school is, or how hard learning is. Well, I’d like to respectfully disagree. Not only for the obvious point that if you do what you like, anything is fun and easy, but I will delve more into what it makes easier, and how the only thing is doesn’t help, particularly in British Columbia, is the wallet.
Post Secondary leads to a better life. This is a broad statement, but what I refer to is the fact that it opens up opportunities, MANY opportunities just by having a diploma. It shows employers that you are more trainable than others in that you can pick up a skill quickly after being briefly taught. This is a skill many don’t have, even some that DO have post secondary education, however, it does significantly help with applying places. Not just jobs either, careers. Never again will you have to work a 9 to 5 if you chose not to. School allows you freedom to chose a field that better suits your sleeping patterns, work preferences, etc. again, simply by having that little magical slip of paper.
Post secondary helps you meet new people. I can’t tell you how many new people I have met through school, many being new friends, friend I am sure I will keep for the rest of my life. Friends that will go on to do great things as well. Friends I will work with in the future. Friends that can introduce me to even more friends that strive towards the same distant, yet, attainable goal. A wise man once said life is like a box of chocolates, and what is a box of chocolates with only one chocolate in it?
LEARNING in general increases intellect if you’re doing it right. Chances are if you’re reading my blog and keeping up to date with it your intellect has improved (haha). But if you’re watching Jersey Shore and reading Snooki’s book while following tabloids on the side, chances are you are REDUCING your intellect.
Personally through my experience in advancing my English skills, I have gained a broad sense of our language, and have adapted an outstanding vocabulary. Friends of mine are often shocked at my ability to use words, and that I don’t always use big words when they find out just how extensive my vocabulary is. However, I don’t type like it often because I do not speak like it. In today’s day and age, most people have a very minute knowledge base of their own language, and that’s okay (well not really, but whatever). It’s my job as a writer to acknowledge this fact and bend my own words so everyone understands. However, my point can be summed up easily. I don’t know how many times I’ve avoided sounding like a jerk by saying someone lacks intellect, rather than saying they are stupid. This is because if I say someone lacks intellect, most people won’t know what it means, and the ones that do will still take a few moments to think about it, giving me enough time to run for the hills in case they throw the first punch.
All in all, education is the best thing we can do for ourselves, or if we are lucky, the best gift our parents can give us. I consider myself lucky to live in a country that allows such educational opportunities and a world of freedom once my eyes fully open. And ultimately, the tuition and textbooks can be next to nothing in the grand scheme of things. To end things off, I will quote another movie, my favorite movie, in saying: You know, if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.
So go out, get educated, avoid tabloids, and have fun. You only get one chance to prove you’ve got IT.

Adding on to what I had posted earlier, let us look back to the technology world.
Last night I was brainstorming of ways to push google+ into the future, and I thought of the Google Glasses.
For those that don’t know about this project, please click the link above, because this is what I will be discussing specifically.
What I thought of was allowing the user interface to support streaming to those that desire, and stream it right onto their google+ accounts. How awesome would it be if your parents were on vacation in Italy or something, and wanted to stream you a tour of a particular site, say, The Colosseum, they could live stream it to share across Google+. This idea would be interesting as well if it also allowed for live streaming of criminal activity for example. Maybe the police would utilize this for a swift punishment tool. To launch the glasses they could, for example, have sites in Time Square and across other major cities where video from their respective location was bouncing around to all of these other places, and vise versa. They could even experiment with the cloud, the potential is limitless. These glasses allow some really interesting connectivity. The likes of which we have never seen. In a world where accessibility and communication is key, these glasses can be that key.
Food for thought.
