APRIL FOOLS DAY

MIND

Mackenzie Davis 1987

“Fuck, he’s got a good life out there. Really, just all you’d ever want. A little village with a nice pub, walk your kids to school every day. That’s all I think I want.”

*This was a quote from Mackenzie Davis. I don’t even know who she’s talking about. But what she is describing sounds like a nice life.

BODY

Sean Taylor 1983

You started hearing stories of him getting dropped off at the facility in the morning and then he’d jog back home. Then he started jogging to work and jogging home. It was about a 3-mile jog from Taylor’s apartment to the facility, meaning he’d jog an extra 6 miles a day when he ran to the facility and back.

*Jog to work and back home today. Or at least park 3 miles from work and jog to and from in honor of the late Sean Taylor.

SOUL

Susan Boyle 1961

“I enjoyed being in church because I liked the peace and tranquility. I liked the hymns, and I liked the idea of having a connection with God.”

*The next chance you get, go to church. See if you like the peace and tranquility while continuing to build your connection to God.

MONEY

Abraham Maslow 1908

Maslow describes self-actualization as a person’s need to be and do that for which the person has a vocation. If these needs are not met, the person feels restless and frustrated, even if successful in other respects.

ENTERTAINMENT

Debbie Reynolds 1932 – watch The Unsinkable Molly Brown

*Watch Debbie Reynolds almost win an Oscar in The Unsinkable Molly Brown.

FOOD

Robin and Brook Lopez 1988 – late night McDonald’s

That’s what they do when Robin comes to New York City… They go to McDonald’s!

“He (Robin) got large fries, big mac — no pickles – always no pickles, and he always says no onions even though big macs don’t have onions on them, I think,”

“I just got two filet-a-fish. Well it’s the filet-a-fish, I had to do it! It’s real fish!”

*Take your brother to McDonald’s and place the same order as the Lopez twins.

SNUB – Logan Paul 1995 – box your brother for another workout.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
