Two most vibrant factors in your day-to-day existence…

Here’s an interesting thought I read recently…

IMG_9922The two most important factors in your day-to-day existence are: 1) your finances and  2) your weight. 

This my seem superficial. But if you think about it, when you can’t pay your bills and you can’t fit into your clothes, it ruins your day. 

I always like to make fun of the superficiality found in the the public eye: in the media, in our lifestyles, and in advertisements. But when I think about the things that are portrayed on a daily basis and the methods used to sell things, we mainly see two types of people in ads: people who are beautiful and who have money: Beauty and Wealth.

The beauty thing, in America really boils down to what things, as portrayed by the media?  Help me out with some comments here.  And likewise, how does the media get at the financial component of well being with its imagery?

What are your thoughts on this?  Is this the key to happiness?  What’s missing here?  I could go argue either side of this with and it’d be fun, but it’s time for bed.  Tell me what you think by clicking on the comments section.

I read this on Gary Fong’s site the other day the other day, by the way.  Also, in case you were wondering, the juxtaposition of the text in this post and the content of the photos was purposeful.

Another Pep Rally Video

Introduction of the Ball team by Ray Chapin, and beginning Michael Byer’s Speech.

I did not get the footage of Doug Olerud reading the proclamation by the Borough Mayor.  I had a miscommunication with the video man Jeremy Strong, and the camera was paused.  Oops.  That was a pretty cool part of the pep rally.

Pep Rally: Cheerleaders!

The Cheerleaders took first place at state in the largest division, beating out Service, Lathrop, Chugiak, Bartlet, Sitka, and others.

Go Cheerleaders!!!
