|| yankees suck ||

this is why the yankees suck.

their "to do" list includes spending ANOTHER $300 million on 2 new players. 2 players!!!
it also includes re-signing 2 players who are past their prime, and overpaid...
that's basically another $35M-$55M next year, on top of the $206M they are already spending...

in case you dont know, texas rangers payroll is $56 million...the whole team....

not only do the yankees plan on blowing another $55M next year, they think its ok...do they not see the crumbling economy? do they not see the hungry? the homeless?

makes me wanna vomit.

|| holding on ||

sometimes we forget where we come from. we forget to hold on to the things that mean the most to us. we forget that we are special, and the people around us are special. and we forget to tell them...

i try to tell the people i'm close to that how much i care. sometimes i say it, sometimes i go out of my way to be nice. sometimes i just smile and let it be.

maybe we lose sight of those things we care so much for because we are distracted. distracted by money, job, love (or lack there of...), the economy, the government, the oil spills, the terrorists, tv, church...

starting now, i refuse to lose sight.

value is determined by so many variables. while a new drumset might be worth more monetarily, it doesn't hold the memories of the old one you had as a kid.

so, today, i choose to find value...value is something that is worthwhile, that is meaningful, and that makes my life better. today, i choose my friends and my family. today, i choose to smile when i dont feel like it. today, i choose to hold on to life.
