Because we all need a little inspiration from time to time here is all the Rocky training sequences up until Rocky IV (purposely excluding Rocky II) followed by the warehouse scene from Footloose where Kevin Bacon dances angrily.

1.POM Pomegranate Black Tea Ever since I bought a bottle of Odwalla pomegranate juice on a whim a while back I’ve been on this Pomegranate hype. I’ve heard good things about POM Pomegranate Tea so I decided to try it. Its crazy delicious, and although I bought the black tea it was light and had a refreshing pomegranate flavor.
Cost: It’ll run you back about $4, not an everyday item it’s a good indulgence. It also comes in a nice glass container which can be used again as a pencil holder or as a vase for when you switch it up and buy the tenderoni you trying to get wit flowers. So, next time instead of going with that hot grande soy toffee nut white mocha from Starbucks, opt for POM tea, its fat free, packed with antioxidants, and wont giver you the shits.
2.L’Oreal Vive Pro Nutri Gloss Shampoo Smells hella good, Works hella good. Lives up to its name, it leaves yo hurrr very glossy glossy
Cost: under $5 @ your local target or grocery store
3.Dime Piece Lipstick Diaries Mixtape 26 tracks of (mostly) heat all mixed by female DJs and by female artists. It features everything from Vanity 6 to Kid Sister, who gives a shot out on one of the tracks. So ch-ch-ch-check it out.
One All Bad Thing: 1. The fact that my janky lil’ Shark sewing machine that I bought at Target for $10 on Black Friday doesn’t work right because something is wrong with the tension between the top stitch and the bottom stitch.
It’s late in the evening December 3rd, 2007, do you know where your college student is?
Due to an immobilizing, as of now undiagnosed illness that I am plagued with, I am for the time being no longer in school and at home in Sacramento. I am home to get better but I can’t help but to feel uneasy and at war with myself for being here. It took a great deal coaxing by people who care about me and a lot out of self-realization-brought upon by a session of self-induced throwing-up in the forest behind my dorm-to get me here. I have an incomplete in my classes for right now; but I would be lying to myself if I were to say that I don’t feel weak, and somewhat like a failure, that I’m giving up. I am haunted by the feeling that I could be at school right now, that I could have been stronger, or if I were more organized, or if I merely tried just a little harder that I could have done it, and seen the rest of the quarter through. This feeling is always behind everything I do and I won’t allow myself to be at peace. Even though I have cried many a night and have been upset about my illness while I was at school, the feeling of being weak and self-disappointment is overwhelming now that I am home and plagues me more so.
I have come to the conclusion rather than squander my “recovery” time, I must use this time to my avail and dare I say be more productive now than I have over the last 5 months. When one thinks of the vices that generally plague people, one thinks of alcohol, sex, gambling, drugs, illicit/illegal activity etc. Alas my vices are not at all scandalous and mostly seem to be associated around an inherent lethargy. I am 18 and I am fully aware that my life is essentially just starting but if I don’t gasp a hold of the reins on my life now and take control, then when? I don’t want to set a precedent of wasted hope and ambition lost amongst a couch, a television, the internet, and a abundance of junk food.
