A Sappy Thanksgiving Reminder
Even though the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is kind of a giant advertisement, it’s a tradition – a staple in the lives of most Americans/Amuricans (however you choose to pronounce it). I even saw it live once in 2007, before I decided I needed to avoid it and the terrible crowds at all costs.
Yet, I will always have a special connection to this parade, ever since I graduated from Ithaca College. Amy Kule, the Executive Producer of the parade (the lady that walks in front) was a graduate of my alma mater, and the speaker at my graduation. She brought those Macy’s star balloons – the ones that you see every year – but painted them with Ithaca colors.

HOW RICH I AM, by Carl Gooch
How Rich I am
Rejoice, O my soul, Rejoice.
Let my lips His praise give voice.
Unceasing each breath a prayer;
For the love of my Lord is there.
I can in give thanks in all things;
It is the Lord who in my life reigns.
I meditate on His word night and day,
I know with me He will always stay.
Calm comes as I draw near to Him;
The noise of this world grows dim.
I come to Him and hardly confess,
Of all the things I did transgress.
He knows my heart and forgives;
Reminding me of the mercy He gives.
Although a sinner from birth I be,
With love He paid the price for me.
Rejoice, for my soul can not contain,
I overflow with joy I can not refrain.
To this world I may seem a poor man;

The 5Breakdown – YouTube Daily Vloggers
On todays 5Breakdown I`m counting down my favorite YouTube daily/ weekly vloggers. If you are not familiar with YouTube and the vlogging scene , I`m sure this concept might sound a bit odd. I know that because I was there , I couldn`t understand what could possibly be so interesting about watching the ordinary day-to-day life of a stranger. Well trust me this is a dangerous path , you will soon find yourself getting up in the morning and watching all the vlogs in your subscription page before anything else.
