Sure, the month of November reminds us to be thankful for what we have, but being thankful isn’t 111608-thankfula motif that stays with us for the rest of the year. Personally, I believe that every day you should give thanks for one thing. This one thing can be small. Being thankful shouldn’t be a chore; please don’t view it like that. We are all lucky in our own ways and I am certain everyone has just one thing to be thankful for. Today, I challenge you to say thank you to someone or to recognize that one thing which you appreciate.

Today, I am thankful for the nights that turned into mornings. The friends who turned into family and all my dreams that turned into reality.

Remember: it’s not happy people who are thankful, it’s thankful people who are happy.

*disclaimer- this is an open letter and a rant, so get out while you cant before you are in too deep.

To Whom it May Concern:

How can you possibly think that his music is better acoustic? I’m sorry is the Pope Catholic? Are you listening with your ears? Let’s take a step back to the 1st grade and put on our listening ears.

Are you actually listening to the words of the music, to the sick beats in the background? Let me ask you this—why are you listening to him? Does he put you in a good mood, lift your spirits, bring you down? Is he making you dance?

This man is amazing. Behind his lyrics are his beats, maybe he personally doesn’t mix them all on his own, but the beats make the tunes. The beats make your soul move. Jamming to him is one of my favorite things to do, and you’re killing it for me. I don’t even think you’re listening to his music or me.

If we’re going to be friends this needs to be a give-a-little-take-a-little relationship. But this is just one thing I absolute without a doubt cannot budge on.

With All My Love
Yours truly,

Kendal Ann

Guys, I need your help. I need some reassurance. This man is the most miraculous gift, puny, awesome, dangerously good-looking, and wicked down to earth. Let me introduce you to my friend, Hoodie Allen. Hoodie has been making his dreams a reality for years now. He is one of the most respectable and admirable people.

I need your opinion. Maybe it will kill me to hear that you actually like all of his acoustic better than his regular beats, and that’s fine. Honestly, like what you like. I just want to get his name out there even more than it is now.

Take a listen and tell me which you prefer.

*disclaimer– please read the follow from Hoodie. This is why I respect him so much. He stepped out of his comfort zone and wanted to go where no rapper has gone before. I appreciate that.
