The End Of Life

I was thinking the other day about when I die. What will it be like. Is there a heaven?

I was raised as a Catholic, but as I got older I was unsure about things. Believing in something is a good thing, right? It gives you a purpose in life. It gives you morals in that you have to live pure that way you can live forever in an "afterlife". This isn't about religion. I thought that they were just trying to scare me. That way I will live my life proper.

When I was about 12 I realized that alot of the stuff that teachers would tell me, didn't really make much sense. I would question something that we would be learning and all they would say is, "that's what the bible says" and avoid the question, because they didn't no, in what way to answer it. It is then when I wanted answers to my questions. I want to go back to my faith as a Catholic. The only thing is, is that I don't want to do it out of being scared.

There is alot of talk about the end of the world in 2012 and what is most likely to be the end of the world as we no it. And it got me thinking. There is alot of things that I want to do with my life that I have yet to fulfilled. Goals and tasks that I have set since I was little. Reading all this talk got me thinking, that if in fact there is a God, or a Judgement Day, I want to spend eternity with the ones I love in Heaven.

But in turn coming back to the Catholic Religion wouldn't seem right because I would be doing it out of fright and not out of faith. To this day I no not of when my life is going to end, but I do no it will, and that scares me. I don't want to die, but when my time comes I wouldn't no what is going on. I don't want to look back upon my life and wish that I could go back and do something different. My question to you guys, the readers, Is that if you could know when your life will end, would you want to know? Would you want to know how long you have on Earth. I know I wouldn't, because I already live each day like it will be my last. And I wouldn't change it for anything.

Whats Going On In The NBA Today?

Hey guys, NBA finals are tomorrow June 3rd and I'm excited. On of the most exciting shooters in the NBA vs "Superman". The Lakers are the favorites, but lets be honest, we were all impressed by the Magic rolling over the Cavs.

And yes I do think that it was immature the way that LaBron dissed the Magic by walking strait into the locker room with out saying anything to the winning team. I mean it isn't that hard to say " hey, good job, congrats. You got me today, but we'll be back. Now go get em." But I would be pissed too. Being the MVP of the league, making it as far as they did, with all the hype having one of the most outstanding home performances in the regular season in NBA history.

But you can't put this on yourself. LaBron did all he could, being that he got no help from his supporting cast. You got to hold your head high in that situation. You did good kid, you have a long career ahead of you, but I will guarantee that he will improve his character after all this negative attention.

Now, Dwight Howard has established himself as one of the most dominant big men in the game. And hes only 23!!! but the again LaBron is 'the' best player in the NBA today and he's 24. But still you got a big man on one side, and on the other is a man who has won 'with' a big man, yet not with out. Yes I'm talking about the original "Superman", Shaquille O'neal. Kobe is a Hall Of Famer, but he needs to prove himself to all the non believers that he doesnt need Shaq to win a Championship. Will he do it this year? Can he bring another Championship back to L.A.? This much I know for sure. He needs Pau Gasol and Bynum to be on top of there game in order to contain Dwight. And Kobe can't have an off night. This Magic team is very talented and will take anything they can get. Hey, we might even see the return of a friendly face ;). Good luck to both teams, and don't disappoint.
