Can’t Get No Satisfaction

“Look at what’s happening to you! You have planted much but harvested little. You eat but are not satisfied. You drink but are still thirsty. You put on clothes but can’t stay warm.” -Haggai 1:5-6

I read this verse the other night and I thought of how much this verse still relates to the culture of today. The people being talked about in this passage couldn’t get satisfaction in anything that they did, they always wanted more. Things aren’t much different now than they were back in the B.C. times when this was written. We all have so much stuff but we “can’t get no satisfaction.”

If you are reading this post online you are in the top 10% of the world population. We are so privileged to have what we have yet we want more. We need to be able to find satisfaction in what we have. The culture around us tells us that we need to get ahead of everyone else and we need to have the newest and coolest things. What needs to happen is we need to stop, take a breath and enjoy the simpler things and be satisfied with it.

Think about all the things that we have that other people all over the world don’t have. That list is very long and we should be satisfied with it. I believe that the best way to improve your way of life is to be okay with be satisfied where you are. Be happy with what you have and finally you’ll be able to say, “I CAN get some satisfaction.”

Weekend Review

This weekend was an amazing weekend in sports. The Final Four is now set, with Villanova, Michigan State, UCONN and North Carolina. I only picked UNC to be in the Final Four out of those 4  but I picked them to win it so there is still a possibility that I get the National Champion right.

Last night I watched the last few holes of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Tiger Woods is amazing. He holed a 16-footer to birdie the last hole and win the tournament. This was his first win since being out for his knee injury and I think that it is safe to say that now Tiger is back.

Memphis No More

Memphis ruined my bracket! I had them going all the way to the National Championship but Missouri had to ruin that. I still have three other teams that are in my Final Four still in the tournament and my champion pick so I still may be alright without Memphis. I have UNC winning the tournament so I have to root for them to win tonight.NCAA Missouri Memphis Basketball

A Different Kind Of Highlight

A few years ago the NHL changed the rules so that no game can end in a tie. The games now go into a shootout if the game is still tied after 5 minutes of OT. I like the shootout and it has produced several great highlights but none quite like the one that I saw today.

I saw this video on ESPN.com today and it was so funny that I had to post it here. This is an AHL goalie (NHL farm league) in a shootout a few days ago. Let’s just say this guy might have some anger management issues…

New Computer

Today I successfully completed building a brand new PC. My old computer crashed so we needed a new one and I was able to build it.

Here’s What’s Up

Where have I been? It’s been a month since I last posted!

Ok. Here’s whats up. Baseball started not to long ago so I’ve had that everyday so I just came home and crashed after that. Now that I’ve gotten into my schedule I’m back!

A little while ago I seriously considered shutting this site down for good but I just can’t stay away so I’m gonna keep posting. I can’t always promise you A+ quality posts because I’m gonna be writing after I get home from practice but you’ll be able to tell the days that practice was easier because my mind will be fully functioning when I’m writing so I’ll have better thoughts.

I also just started twittering if you want to keep up with me there.

Super Bowl Poll

The Super Bowl is tomorrow and the results to my poll that I posted are very close. Pittsburgh has 59 votes, Arizona has 58. It’s going to be a good game no matter who wins. My prediction is, Pittsburgh wins it.
