The Amazing Race for The Amazing Race

On Tynan

Wow. This has got to be one of my all time best stories.

On Wednesday night I was talking to my good friend Jonah and was telling him about the show "<tag>The Amazing Race</tag>", and how I wanted to apply this year. Jonah and I have gone on a lot of trips together and somehow don't grate on each other's nerves at all. I have a lot of respect for him and his abilities, so I thought he'd be a perfect partner for The Amazing Race. For those of you who don't know about this tv-tastic gem, it's basically a race / scavenger hunt around the world.

I meandered to the application site, downloaded the application, and began to check out the requirements. Guess when the due date for the tape was? Friday at 5pm, which meant that we had one day to create a 3 minute video, fill out the two 11 page applications and get some passport sized photos taken. Not one to back down from a <tag>challenge</tag> due to complete lack of time, I convinced Jonah to get on board.

Can anime teaches us anything new?

On Brian Hermelijn - Personal Development.

Every time when you tell someone that you watch anime, you get the reaction, what really? You watch anime? Anime of all things? It’s like they do not expect you to watch anime or you’re doing something bad for watching anime. Is it really wrong to watch? That’s the question I came to every time when someone reacts that way.

After all, anime is the same way as novels. Some of the shows even go as far to show history of mankind. And from what I have seen, there are many advices we can take from anime alone. Here is a list of what I learned from anime.

1. Motivation

One of the main shows that boosted my confidence was Hajime no Ippo. Without spoiling the story too much, it was about a teenage boy that was getting bullied. And then later on he learned boxing, and started boxing. He didn’t know he had such talent.
