Can Garbage Make You Rich?
One man's trash is the next man's treasure... Who hasn't heard that expression before, right? Although, it wasn't until just recently that I realized how true it might actually be. At least when it comes to the company Waste Management on the stock market.
Can AT&T Make You Rich?
There's no way to sugarcoat it... we're living in a scary time financially. Between rising interest rates, monstrous inflation levels decimating the US dollar, and all of America's greatest rivals coming together to create their own currency.., well, it appears the US economy's darkest days have yet to come.
MCU Phase 4 Breakdown: The Desserts
Now that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has hit theaters by storm, the MCU's Phase 4 has finally concluded. A phase that gave marvel fans more content than all three previous phases combined. Now that it's all said and done, I think it's a good time for us to go over all of the highlights that came out of the first phase of the Multiverse Saga. Don't get me wrong.., there has been plenty of key moments, plotlines, character reveals, etc. that the overall fandom would consider misfires. Not to mention things that the community would call downright ugly mistakes. However, for this article, we're only going to focus on what I would call: The Phase 4 Desserts. Meaning all of the good stuff to come out of the phase, the stuff that made us fans look forward to the future of the MCU. I'm going to have to give you guys a spoiler warning; since we're going over the entire phase you might want to go and watch it all before reading this article. While Phase 4 is highly regarded among fans to be extremely convoluted, there has still been plenty of gems within this phase as well, so let's get into it, shall we?
The MCU's Next Thanos
The MCU has given Marvel fans one spectacular movie after another over the course of the last decade and a half. Along with that run of amazing films, Marvel Studios has also given us one of the greatest villains in the entire history of cinematography.., Thanos. The "Mad Titan" storyline was over 10 years in the making and the final payoff was not only well deserved but also one that will be remembered for decades. However, now that the character's reign of terror within the MCU has come and gone, fans are dying to know who the next "boss villain" be for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The following is a list of 3 prime candidates who could go on to fill that role.
A Letter To My Dad
Dear Dad, About a month ago, I entered a writing competition where I was supposed to write a letter to my hero. After a ton of consideration, I decided to write a letter to myself in 10 years but I had also planned to write a letter to my other hero, a letter to you...
The Tale Of You & Me Part 3: Together Again
Dear Greta, Once again, it is time for me to continue telling our story. When we last left off, it was reaching the end of our first time apart. Throughout the years, I have joked every now and again about being the king of self-destructive behavior. While I may have always said it in a joking manner, I wholeheartedly believe that I have the bad habit of sabotaging anything good going for me in my life. It's undoubtedly one of my worse habits and something that I have recently been trying to address. Unfortunately, my self-destructive tendencies applied to our relationship as well. There's no way for me to sugar coat it Greta, I fucked up. I broke your heart and I was absolutely sure that we wouldn't ever be together again after I did. Although, life can have the habit of surprising us, this time the surprise came in the form of a message that I received from you.
Cobra Kai: Hawk's Redemption
Season 4 of Cobra Kai came and went quicker than we'd hoped. By the season finale, we were left with plenty of cliffhangers to ensure that fans would be looking forward to season 5. One character ark that was left at a good place was Eli's or, as we know him, Hawk. We've seen Hawk go from a defenseless nerd to gaining his confidence, to becoming a villain, and then to finally becoming a hero. We're going to be covering the entire trajectory of his character ark throughout seasons 1 through 4. So if you have you aren't completely caught up, you should be warned, there are massive spoilers ahead.
A Letter To Myself In 10 Years
Dear Carlos, I wanted to enter into one of the many challenges that Vocal offers its writers. The challenge that I entered required me to write a letter to my hero. However, I wasn't sure who I considered my hero to be. Initially, I was trying to choose between either Jordan Peterson, Elon Musk, or Mr. Beast. Although, after seeking advice from my family, I was given the idea to write a letter to you... or should I say to us.
Jordan Peterson's Best Lessons
Right around the time my ex-wife left me, I stumbled onto a speech by a former psychology professor from the University of Harvard. They say that God puts people in your life at exactly the time that you need them and that's how I felt about Jordan Peterson. Although he became widely known for his controversial stance on transgender pronoun laws, he is also famous for the amount of help his speeches have been for young men my age. His words were so powerful that I had to go out and buy his book 12 Rules For Life immediately. So, for the sake of sharing his lessons with others who may need them, these are the greatest things I learned from Jordan Peterson.
5 Horror Movies Hollywood Needs To Reboot
Over the course of the last decade, Hollywood has rebooted movies from nearly every genre. These reboots are either hit or miss, in other words, they're either extremely successful or absolute flops. One could make the argument that out of all the movie genres, the best reboots have come from horror movies. Childs Play, It, Holloween, and, most recently, Scream, all have had a significant amount of success in the box office. The latest technology in cinematography is to blame for that. Given how successful those projects were, one can't help but think about some other projects that have a significant amount of reboot potential. Under the right circumstances, these movies could certainly be home runs if they were to be rebooted today.
The Tale Of You & Me Part 2: Breaking Your Heart
Dear Greta, It's time for the second part of our story. This is a period of time that, at one point or another, we both wished never happened. Unfortunately, not only did it happen but it's a major chapter of our history. On my 18th birthday, we went on a trip to Orlando with my family. Neither of us knew it at the time but this was one of the last good memories the two of us would make for a while.
Thank You, Gabriella
It's been months since I last heard your voice... 4 years since I've held you in my arms. I want to begin by letting you know that I'm sorry I let you down. The last 4 years have amounted to the biggest failure of my entire life. I've lost out on so much time with you and I'll never get it back. Gabriella, I also need you to know how much I've missed you. Don't think for a second that I've gone a single day without thinking about you at least twice. The final thing I want you to know is thank you. This may be hard for you to understand but I owe you my life. I had to go through something that changed my life forever. Something that could've taken me out of the game for good. It could've... but it didn't and the reason for that is you.
