The curious motivational video of Shia LaBeouf that has been plastered all over the internet in recent months is kind of hilarious. The fact that the footage was shot against a green screen has made it really easy for people to remix it in all sorts of hilarious ways.
I’m going to skip the part where I speculate about the original purpose of the footage (or whether it was some viral scheme from the beginning) and just say this:
I actually find it pretty motivating.
I’m not sure if it’s the humor, the intensity, the strangeness, or a combination thereof, but I actually find myself remembering this whenever I feel like I should do something, but not right now. On a few different occasions I’ve actually been able to follow through on some ideas after remembering this silly video. It’s like my lazy thoughts are interru— YESTERDAY YOU SAID TOMORROW, JUST DO IT!!!
Lacey and I spent last week at the Outer Banks of North Carolina with some great friends. We had an excellent time playing in the waves, chilling on the beaches, reading, exploring local historical spots, eating good food, playing ridiculous games, and laughing hard.
We enjoyed Thanksgiving in Pigeon Forge with Lacey’s family.
I witnessed Dad and Mom enter their 37th year of marriage.
We did Christmas in Knoxville with my Family (all four sisters were in town).
We saved a little money.
There are some pretty significant bullet points on that list! I am thankful for what this past year has brought us, and I look forward to what’s in store for 2015. Here are some of the plans/goals I’m looking forward to:
A weekend mountain trip with some really good friends.
We had a fun Christmas card photo shoot with our cousin, Addison, during our Thanksgiving break. Lacey and Addison came up with some creative poses. I focused on camera work. We had a lot of fun with this, and Aunt Amanda did a great job with the Christmas card.
