Good Role Models
[Image: tumblr_n65q19XP7v1qhwth9o1_500.jpg]

Quote:Emma Watson graduated from one of the most prestigious Ivy League colleges, Brown University, with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature. She may be best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the movie adaptions of the Harry Potter series, but this young woman was determined to acquire an education—while simultaneously starring in 4 films (two of which were the last installments of the Harry Potter franchise). I just wanted to take a moment and praise Ms. Watson for her accomplishments. You don’t see her in the headlines for drug involvement or rehab or what have you. No. Some associations tied to her name include modeling, designing eco-friendly clothing, education, promoting positive body image, and supporting schools in Africa. To me, this is the epitome of a great role model not only for young girls but for anyone. To borrow a clichéd saying, she’s got a good head on her shoulders. Besides, English literature is pretty darn cool anyhow.

She's not as cute as you, Ferdi.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Nor as funny, or entertaining!

Wayne Gretzky.
Because he isn't the biggest, the strongest, or the fastest but he certainly is the best. That and even though he is nicknamed "The Great One" he's not an arrogant fuck.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

RE: Good Role Models
This guy sucked... look at him... striking out... again and again.

He showed people that sometimes, trying to do what you love or just trying new things can be one of the most important parts of living a solid, happy life. He tried ... he tried his damnedest. Really, that's the one thing he wanted to do -just try. He may have failed in the eyes of some (many) but he had the time of his life just trying.

I couldn't give much of a shit that he's sports god Michael Jordan. To me he's a hero & role model because he knows what's important: being true to one's own self and trying... even though you know you just might suck.
