Day 40: Happy Thankgiving! What are you thankful for?

Thanksgiving is here, everybody. Can you believe it? Thanksgiving Music Video to celebrate all the blessings. ► Subscribe for more Rosa G: http://bit.ly/RosaG4Life " Original character by me " Written by David Saint: http://davidsaint.com " Mixed by Enrique Suarez: http://www.bacanomusic.com " Cousins: Matias Quiñones aka cute potato and Monica Pardo aka pretty cus.

What are you thankful for this year? It's a tradition I've never really got into. But this year, I'll make an exception. My friends and family have gone through a lot this past year, and some of it was bad, but much of it was good. From finding love, to finding jobs, to finding peace, and finding family safe. No matter what's happening to them, these fine people are still finding themselves happy, and in a good place, even with the struggle and with the strife. They move forward with their head held high and their feet firmly underneath them. And that is what I am thankful for this year. I'm thankful that these wonderful people are doing well, and finding joy and fulfillment in their lives. I'm thankful that they've made it through the hardest experiences and coming out stronger. I'm thankful that they are doing well.

To those out there reading this. I hope that you too are doing well. What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? 

Day 40 - It All Tastes The Same

I think I've mentioned in the past that I have a horrible memory, so I can't recall if I've written about motivation. I will at some point look back and see if I did, but for now, I will assume that it already happened. Instead, I want to talk about coffee.

There was a moment in my life where I thought I could live without coffee. I was able to, for about a month, and I soon realized that there was no need to quit cold turkey. It wasn't like I was drinking it all day, everyday.  So, once a week or so, I'll treat myself to a cup of coffee. Now before anyone says that Starbucks is not real coffee, one I do agree with you to a point, and two, there really are not that many places to get a relatively decent cup of coffee. So, that's where I get my cup of Joe (whatever that means).

Every holiday season Starbucks outs out their seasonal coffees, and this year, they came out with a new flavor. Chestnut praline latte. I figured, why not give it a go? I've tried all of their other flavors, and I figure it'd be nice to try something new. Upon purchase and consumption there was a realization. Lately, Starbucks coffees taste the same. 

When you first take a sip of your coffee, you may notice that it's got the familiar bitterness of actual coffee, drowned out by sugar of all shapes and sizes. As you continue to sip, you start to tell the nuance of the actual flavor, whether it is egg nog, chestnut, or gingerbread, but yet again, it's beaten down by the taste of whipped cream and whatever else they put in there.

I realize this could just be my Starbucks, and others may make their lattes with a tender, loving care, but as far as I know, all these coffees taste the same. It could be the type of coffee they use. It might be a new type of bean, or maybe they're using more coffee and less flavoring, but it wasn't always like this. I remember a grand time when the taste of the different types of lattes and cappuccinos were vibrant with this spice and that. Now, it's like they're all manufactured the same way. They're all a sweet, confectionery in a cup.

It'd be fantastic if I could get some feedback on this, so I wouldn't think I was completely crazy. Though, I may very well be insane for continually drinking coffees that all taste the same. It's like after the fourth of fifth sip, the flavor becomes muted. It's cloned coffee with a bit of placebo for added, taste effect.

Well, that was a long winded observation that may have no real merit to the overall quality of actual Starbucks coffee, and may just be my lame taste buds trying to tell me that I've lost all sense of sensation on my tongue, or maybe I should make my own damn coffee, but you keep going back because you admit, you like the sweet and sometimes savory flavors.

Day 39 - Pseudo-celebrity

The whispers throughout the internet and mainstream media say that the youth of today only want one thing. They want to be famous. This makes sense if you look at the plethora of Youtube "stars" who came up and became pseudo celebrities. There are these type of folk on Instagram, Twitter, Vine, you name it. The young and the old alike want to be liked by the masses. Hell, I'd be lying if I didn't say I wouldn't mind some fame because of my podcasts or this blog. I do these things not only because I love to do it, but because it reaches out to people.

I don't know if it's sad that people want to be internet famous. People all over the world are willing to watch others play video games for hours on end on Twitch or read blog posts or use Youtube as a TV for the latest shows and reviews. What we old fogies believe is a waste of time is actually the way we entertain each other. The internet is the new sidewalk and we are the street performers. We make a living not on dollar bills, but on views and listens. That's the new currency that turns into real currency.

Where I once had a bad taste in my mouth for those "weirdos" who flaunted themselves online with obnoxious personas or stupid songs, I now have a renewed respect, because someone is consuming their content. Someone is buying their song, downloading their video, and donating to their website, and for those fans, that person they support, is a star.
