Here I am sitting at Starbucks listening to Demi Lovato's new album Confident and sipping a non-fat latte typing a blog post while I wait until I have to go to work at American Eagle. There's and older man sitting at the table across from me typing on his laptop. People roaming the book isles of Barnes and noble. Everyone in there own bubble of insecurity and self deprivation. There's a man scanning the 'Self Help' isle and a young employee restocking the book shelves. Wondering, wanting, lifelessly scanning. How many isles of books till it gets repetitive?

Hi, I own http://nihonscope.com where I post interesting information about Japanese culture, music, food, Japan's geography and learning Japanese. I am currently studying Japanese with my wife while working on our online business and plan on traveling to Japan next year to live there and study Japanese for real. There are some good programs online for learning Japanese though too, you do not need to go to Japan to learn Japanese, although I am sure you would love to go to Japan, right?

 It's amazing, how people can remember the negative, and never accent the positive.Recently, I encountered a distant relative to bring up a association with someone,that is now forty years old to date. When, that person, did that, I questioned the validity of the person's intent and modus vivendi.Whenever, someone for whatever reason, dishes out old accusations, and those same accusations are hurled back at them, rather true or false, they should be able to take what they dished out !

Feeling stuck? I was too. But I stepped out of it. And you can too. The first step is pretty simple. So why not take it? I desired change. My first step was the realization that needed to start inside of me, instead of outside by hoping others would create the change I desired. My big realization and the secret to getting unstuck was acknowledging that I, like you, am a marketing genius. I was a genius at convincing my brain that life was hard, I wasn’t capable, and I wasn’t enough.

Just because something is legal, does that mean you should do it? In the case of spying on your kids’ phone activities, some say yes. Though the very same mode of operation is illegal in most states when the eavesdropper is your boss or anyone else and you’re the “eavesdropee,” this same mechanism is legal and encouraged for parents to their kids.

*I wrote this short piece in the immediate weeks following my Dad's death. I'm sharing it here, with you all, because everything in this piece is still true.
