  4. Emeasoba George:

    Everything in life is temporary. Every time it rains, it stops raining after a while. Each time you get hurt, it heals. After darkness there is always light. We are reminded of this every morning, but still we often forget. Instead we choose to believe that the night will last forever. But it cannot and will not. Nothing lasts forever. Thus, if things are good for you presently enjoy them. Because, they will not last forever. Moreover, if things are bad for you currently, don’t worry. For, they will not last forever either. Now listen up, just because life is not easy at the moment, does not mean you cannot make it again. Besides, that you are presently challenged, does not mean you cannot laugh at last. Every moment gives you a new beginning and a new ending. You get a second chance, every second. So, you just have to take it and make the best of it. For, eventually everything is going to be okay someday (only believe). -Emeasoba George

  5. Hilary Duff:

I haven't quite figured that one out yet, i'm also very challenged when it comes to technology, so when I'm sitting in label meetings and they're like, 'Oh, we're gonna stream this'... my brain starts to like fizzle, fizzle, fry. I'm like, 'What is happening right now?'.
