  • How Taking Care of My Finances Changed My Life

    29 Jun 2015 | 6:00 am
    By Leo Babauta Looking back on my life a decade ago, I just wasn’t taking care of myself. I was overweight, deeply in debt, a smoker, junk-food addict, stressed out, clutter piling up all around me, I didn’t floss … my life was a mess. And the solutions were so simple: little acts of self-care that really add up over time. They’re so easy: go for a walk, do a few pushups, meditate for a few minutes, clear a little bit of clutter, take a minute to floss. But I put these things off, avoided even thinking about them, and my problems piled up. One of the most stressful…

    23 Jun 2015 | 12:17 pm
    By Leo Babauta I’m launching a 4-week travel experiment! I love traveling and exploring the world, but I have a number of problems when I travel: Eating: I overindulge in delicious vegan food and feel unhealthy after awhile. Exercise: I find it hard to keep a regular exercise routine — I walk a lot, but want to do more strength exercises. Work: I usually do most of my work ahead of time, so I don’t have to worry about it much during my trips … but that means a ton of work before every trip. I’d prefer being able to work while traveling, at a minimal but sufficient…
  • The Parent I Aspire to Be

    By Leo Babauta It’s nearly Father’s Day, and that always causes me to reflect on what kind of father I am. I think I’m pretty decent, though I’m not where I’d like to be. The good things I do: I try to inspire my kids, I do projects with them like programming and chess and website building, I read to the younger ones, I do outdoor things with them, I teach them about responsibility and compassion, I try to set a good example for them. But there’s always more I can do, always. Actually, it’s not that I can do more, it’s that I can be with them in…
  • The Best & Less-than-Best Motivations for Learning

    17 Jun 2015 | 1:57 pm
    By Leo Babauta More than 3,300 people signed up for the 30-Day Learning Challenge (wow!), and some of you might be finding a dip in your motivation for learning. That’s OK. We all go through dips in motivation sometimes. The key is to figure out a better motivator, and adjust your plan. Today I’d like to talk about a few common motivations that don’t work that well, and then share what I’ve found to be the best motivations for learning — ones that keep you going strong even after a month or two. Let’s start with some less-than-best motivations: A big goal.

    Guåhu Guåhan: I am the Place of Existence, Being Indigenous and Performing Sovereignty By Dåkot-ta Alcantara-Camacho In this paper, I argue performative sovereignty as framework for understanding indigenous performance on the stage and in everyday life. Sovereignty in the indigenous context draws from centuries long legal and political disputes over land, language, and culture in which indigenous peoples assert the right to self-determination in both western and indigenous systems. The conversation over sovereignty and indigenous subjectivities has recently been troubled by scholar Vince…

With numerous genres, local bands, and a vast music scene. This presentation will analyze Dr. Michael Clement’s work on how the post-WWII music scene has shaped the present day music scene. I will attempt to cover various musicians’ relations to Guam music staples and their evolved style, and will focus on common problems today’s musicians face. These include consequences of legislation…

  • Sunday Reading “The Lord and His Prayer” by NT Wright #2

    27 Jun 2015 | 2:52 pm
    Last week I began a new book for my Sunday reading, The Lord and His Prayer, by N. T. Wright. The book was a result of a series of sermons preached in 1995 for Advent and published in 1996. In this book Dr. Wright looks at the Lord’s prayer phrase by phrase in six chapters. Each week we will look at one chapter. My plan is to pray through the book as well, each Sunday focused on one phrase of the prayer. This week, we focus on the 2nd phrase in the prayer, “Thy Kingdom Come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven!” I have already posted some quotes from this chapter on my…
  • Another Beautiful Weekend on Guam

    27 Jun 2015 | 1:37 am
    It was a beautiful warm sunny Saturday on Guam…again. We had a fun weekend. Titus stayed with us last night – - I watched him play video games with a trip in the middle to McDonalds for a Mcflurry (Oreo). We then headed out early in the morning for another basketball game. Titus’ team won again and are undefeated this season at 3-0. It is evident that he enjoys winning. After the game we headed to the PIU car wash at the Lutheran Church of Guam. The students are raising money for a yearbook. It was a perfect day for a car wash, only a little drenching in the morning. We enjoyed spending…

Nino, Samantha, Jamie and I had a good chance to raise community awareness about PIU and how we can help with some of the businesses’ educational needs. As a small private college we have some flexibility in how we can work to meet needs in the business and wider community. This was a good opportunity to get…

  • Scalia's Dissents

    26 Jun 2015 | 9:42 pm
    It is very exciting to read all the celebration over the Supreme Court of the US and their decision to legalize same-sex marriage. The US will now enter a period where same-sex marriage will hopefully disappear as a distinction and eventually there will just be "marriage."It has been interesting however to follow the dissent that Antonin Scalia filed against the ruling, as well as his dissent against the Supreme Court's approval of Obamacare. In my social media feeds it seems like nearly everyone is ecstatic about these victories, but every once in a while someone, a friend on Facebook for…

  • White Terrorism, Black Terror

    21 Jun 2015 | 10:35 am
    There is so much that we can say about "terrorism."For most people this is something you connect to the most terrible acts humans can commit. You hurt people, soldiers, civilians, anything. You treat them like objects, and use them like weapons, wood to create flames from your political fire. Although we my be accustomed to conceiving that some cultures are more predisposed to commit acts of terrorism that others, in truth we find the potential for this type of human damage within all peoples. But there is generally a difference in how we assign value and meaning to these acts. Although…
  • I Lina'la'-hu para i Lenguahi-hu!

    20 Jun 2015 | 10:54 am
    The image above is drawn from the universe of Starcraft 2 or as I refer to it in Chamorro "Sahyan Estreyas Dos."    One of the reasons the Chamorro language is dying is because it isn’t used for that many things. I try my best in my personal and professional life to use the language for everything or for as many things as I can. This is one instance. Many Chamorros today will draw a line between their "Chamorro" side or their Chamorro identity and the popular cultural forms, such as video games, movies, books, comics and so on, that they enjoy on a day to day basis in what…
