Good morning.

One week ago today I had the privilege of attending a lecture by Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. Inspiring, funny and incredibly motivating, he gave the entire lecture in his socks. As he shuffled around the stage he asked questions and even called on people in a Q & A at the end. (Incredible because Jones Hall was sold out for this) He spoke to the crowd of thousands as though we were all his students and were in a tiny classroom. It was brilliant to say the least. My favorite question was asked by an aspiring astrophysicist. She just wanted to know what advice he could give her about college. He said: “Take harder classes and stop thinking about your GPA.”

I loved that. Thank you, Dr. Tyson

Happy Tuesday❤️

THE OPPOSITTE OF EQUALITY

What if men were portrayed & objectified the same way women are in the Action Sports industry?

This does not intend at all to objectify men instead, it’s just a wake-up call on how ridiculous it looks when men are portrayed the way women are in the scene. Time to take action!
