Break Point

We could make a “ball” joke here, but tennis puns are quite the racquet

Break Point? Hmm. Not to be confused with Point Break which will be out later this year and shouldn’t have been remade.

Jimmy Price is a reckless man-child on the last leg of his career as a doubles tennis player. When his latest partner drops him, he realizes he’s officially burned all of his bridges on the pro circuit. He decides to make one last ditch effort to revive his career, reaching outside of the tennis world and convincing his childhood partner — his estranged brother Darren, now an apathetic substitute teacher – to team up with him. The mismatched pair, with the help of a unique 11-year-old named Barry, make an unlikely run at a grand slam tournament and are forced to re-discover their game, and their brotherhood.

Be true to you

betrueTry to respect all people,
You are not disrespectful to a stranger,
Why would you be disrespectful to people you know?
If someone doesn’t return the respect,
Don’t let go, don’t give up
on being someone you are proud of,
This doesn’t mean let someone treat you badly,
It means choosing to always be the person
who stays true to who you want to be
Don’t let someone lessen your character
just because theirs is lacking.

Policies. Myths. Facts. Baltimore.

We talk about myths and facts in class a lot and how societal perceptions are very often based on myth. A lot of people think white privilege is a myth. It is not. I learned a great deal from one of my favorite professors, Dr. Norma Gaines-Hanks. Amazing woman. I had a three-hour class with her (HDFS 235: Survey in Child & Family Services)  and never once felt bored or anxious to leave. I went into the class incredibly naive. I’m sure there are many things which I am still naive about or ignorant to, but I feel thanks to her class I can actually see why there are people in Baltimore, who feel like rioting is the only thing they can do to be heard.
