The Jackie Robinson Experiment 

Jackie Robinson made one of the most difficult transitions imaginable at an extremely young age, obviously mature beyond his years....

one particularly masterful scene is a photo shoot that was set up to help save face for the Philadelphia phillies organization and there coach after a disgustingly, excessive ignorant list of despicable taunts he yelled to Jackie throughout his first three at bats of the game. Jackie picks up a bat and lets the cameramen take their photo opp with each man holding part of the bat "so they don't have to touch skin" says Jackie. ZING and he deserved so so so much worse.

One of the more inspirational points in the movie without giving too much away is the scene where the 2nd basemen "PeeWee" walks up and puts his arm around Jackie, something so insignificant now but which had an overwhelming feeling of relief after seeing it. Such a touching moment.

Overall the movie was great, def something worth showing your high school sports team before the season starts or night before a big game, def some motivational stuff in there, 

I give it an 8.5/10

14k Yellow Gold Necklace Review

incredibly light, short. nd small. I should have realized just how short it was going to be beforehand but I haven't purchased a necklace in a while. I def suggest getting something at least 22-24 mm if your an adult man. Also, if you can afford it i'd go with at least 3.5-4mm width. And if you can't afford it i'd wait and save up as opposed to just getting what you can, 2.6mm is very very slight and feels cheap being so light. item link- Children's Gold Chain

My nephew is an incredible little guy, ever since the day I first saw him I knew how special he was going to be! At the time we found out my younger sister was pregnant it was a shock to all of us. I remember thinking, how can she believe in raising another person when her relationship with her boyfriend was so relatively new. But, they got married at a beautiful venue in front of many friends and family who no matter what supported their decisions. I remember thinking that she wasn't ready to be a mother, she still was my little sister and I had a hard time seeing her as an adult. But she more then proved me wrong and worked as many hours as she could while still making raising my nephew Carson Michael the most important thing. 

Both the young parents put his needs above those of their own and its not hard to see just how much love they share for that special little boy. I can't believe he's going to be 5 in just a few more short months. The years go by so so fast. If anyone out there is listening, please, trust me, no matter what struggle a child may bring, it's the most rewarding and amazing  feeling in the world to hear "i love you uncle josh" while i'm getting a great big hug before he goes back home from his afternoon of fun at his grammie's.

At one point I just couldn't picture what my little sister would be like as a, i don't have a doubt in my mind that she has grown into a very responsible, hard working mother of 1, who would do anything in the world to make sure my nephew is a safe, bright happy little man. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't look at his big smile in the picture by my bed, he's my reason for progress, he's my reason my life has changed for the better. I'm going to get to watch this incredible little boy grow up, and i'm so thankful and lucky to have him in my life....

I hope all of you reading this have someone in your life that brings you as much joy as I get from him...
