What advice would you give your younger self?

  • Not to trust anyone, and to find things out for myself.
  • Ignore my high school guidance counselor and take calculus and trigonometry courses.
  • Buy stock in Yahoo.
  • Ignore mean things I've overheard and have been told about myself that have affected my behavior and belief system to this day.
  • Don't be afraid to have an opinion.

Mad props to my friends Aaron, Billal, and Farzahad for paying a subscription to my monthly cake service. Extra props to Aaron for coming up with the idea and being the first subscriber. Extra extra mad props to Billal who lives in Cairo Egypt and Farzahad who lives in Alkhobar Saudi Arabia. Billal and Farzahad don't even like sweets. They call it a subscription. I call it a donation.  Thanks!

Amendment- Thanks to my friend Karim for buying a subscription today. He lives in Paris

Today I have decided not to jump through hoops to make sure I continue to be liked and to be appreciated.

Be like water

Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. --Bruce Lee
