Alexander the Great – Thumbs up Thursday

Alright, today I am giving a great big, non-homophobic thumbs up to Alexander the Great. As many know, Alexander was bisexual. I am trying to make more aware of the great man’s bisexuality and let people know that it is, in fact, ok to be gay.

An awesome movie that I think does Alexander justice is Alexander Revisited. It takes the audience on a three and a half hour journey through Alexander’s life and is done with wonderful respect of him. I found this movie at my local HMV. You shouldn’t have a problem finding it. Happy watching!

Families – Thumbs up Thursday

Today I would like to give a great big thumbs up to all of the awesome families out there. I am sure that many of the truly amazing people that we have around today would not be here if they did not have family to encourage them.

A family does not have to be people even related to you. A family can be people that you care about and people who care about you. Anyone you spend a lot of time with can be family, even your pets. A family is merely two or more individuals that care about eachother.

Many people take their families for granted. But when they are gone, they are missed dearly. Don’t let your time with your family slip away, it is something that should be cherished and remembered forever. If you think you don’t have a family, go out and find one. There are billions of people on this planet, I am sure that you can find one that you can relate to.

So here’s a thumbs up to the families of the world.

Teachers That Don’t Pick Favourites – Thumbs up Thursday

Today I am giving a thumbs up to all teachers that don’t pick favourites. I am sure we have all seen an educator that grades some students easier than others based on their personal opinion of the person. Every student should be treated fairly and equally in the classroom and should be judged on academic success, not personality. So here is a thumbs up to the teachers that do treat students fairly and equally.

Shakespeare? – Memorial Monday

Today I am remembering William Shakespeare. Real or not, this character contributed much to the language of today and to the culture of the time. It is rare that you will find a person with a highschool education who does not know who Shakespeare is. He was the man who made a lot of stories famous and many people aware of what great acting truly was. It is quite possible that Shakespeare was really just a name used by many, a few, or one. But nobody knows for certain, so I am remembering whoever was called William Shakespeare and thanking them/him/her for such an amazing contribution to the world.
