i kept my hair short for about two years once i shaved it all off. But yes, i kept wearing sew ins. I still wear sew ins. not just because of the different styles but more so to protect my hair. My hair is natural and with everything that I do i don’t want to do to much heat damage to my hair.

Neil Hilborn - “The Future” (NPS 2013)
”When I’m down I don’t kill myself because then the sadness would be over, and the sadness is my old paint under the new.”
Back by popular demand, Neil Hilborn. Now with 80% less beard.
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’
The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.The students laughed..
‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—-and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything else—-the small stuff.
‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.
Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.
Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.
This just changed me

You have no idea, the great things that are about to happen to you; the great endeavors you will do. How you will inspire others to succeed. You have only caught a glimpse of all of the wonderful things that shall come to pass.
And if people offer their help or wisdom as you go through life, accept it gratefully. You can learn much from those who have gone before you but never be afraid or hesitant to step off the accepted path and head off in your own direction, if your heart tells you that it’s the right way for you. Always believe that you will ultimately succeed at whatever you do, and never forget the value of persistence, discipline, and determination.
You are meant to be whatever you dream of becoming.
"What if I told you God is gay?" Elliot Darrow, a student at the University of North Carolina, absolutely kills it with this slam poetry performance about Christianity and homosexuality at the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational back in April. The video’s been up for a while, but it’s making the rounds again and certainly worth a second watch. (via The Advocate)
