He watches dozens of videos of guys covering popular, complicated songs with, it seems, little effort. This only fuels his motivation even more.

Needs versus Wants (and How to Separate Them)

Needs versus Wants

Back in fifth grade, I went to an overnight camp with my school. On the last day there, everyone gathered together for our last group activity.

Her pay was not sufficient to keep her children well fed so the older and younger brothers, Guddu and Saroo (about 12 and 5 in age) take it upon themselves to steal coal off of moving trains and sell the … Read the rest
