Hump Day Thoughts

I started the week off on the wrong foot, with one of the worst migraines EVER.
Let me tell you why.

Sunday night, around 3am, I was awoken by a group of kids talking loudly, drinking, and having a party on their balcony.
On a SUNDAY night. 

First off all, who has a party on a Sunday night?
Secondly, why are college kids living in my apartment building?
I mean, I don't live in the suburbs just yet, but I'm nowhere near a college campus.

We asked them to turn it down once, twice, and the third time I lost it.
It was 4.30am by then, and I told them that if they didn't take their party inside, I was calling the cops.
Mind you, our bedroom window facees their balcony, so that didn't help their case.
They didn't care about the fact that we had to wake up at 6am and go to work.
I actually think they kept it up on purpose.

Because that is what kids do these days - they are huge brats who act like they own the world.
They think they are invincible, and have no sense of respect. 
They don't think about the consequences of their actions. 

Now don't get me wrong, I was a college kid once.  I did my fair share of partying.
But I was never openly rude about it. 

I swear, kids nowadays scare me.  They think they are so tough.  They think they know everything.
As much as I love technology, it has made kids lazy, and some of them plain stupid.
They can't think for themselves, and they rely on google for everything.

OK vent over.

Do any of you watch SharkTank?  It comes on abc, Friday nights at 8pm.
It's one of our favorite shows to watch, and this season, Mark Cuban is one of the investors.

Do you know Mark Cuban? 
He's a one of those big time Entrepreneurs who made millions during the revolution.
He is also known for being the owner of the Dallas Mavericks.
You know him, the guy who's always dressed in jeans, and Mavs gear yelling at the refs!?
He's a really interesting guy, and he is smart as hell. 

Well if you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen this already.
But I was tweeting at him during the show last Friday, and later that night I received the following notification:

I reacted the same way a 15 yo would have if Justin Bieber had my a tweet their favorite. 
I have no shame in admitting that.

I decided to make it a personal challenge, and see if I could get either and RT or a follow.
And Saturday night, I got THIS notification:

Insert mental image of Justin Bieber fan jumping off the couch screaming hell yeah.

After that, I told myself the next step would be a direct message. 
Guess what? I got not only one, but two responses from Mr. Cuban himself!

I know this may all sound silly, but I thought it was really cool.
Simply because he has almost a 1 million followers, and somehow, I am part of the 386 he follows.
He is a pretty cool dude, and it's nice to see that he still takes time to acknowledge the little people.
He's a big inspiration to me, and when someone like that gives you even a minute of their day to say something like "go out there and kick some ass", well that is a huge motivator!

So thank you for giving me the time of day Mark Cuban.
You totally made my week.
Now I just have to find a way to meet him!
