What the Show “Friends” Did Right

A Writer's Path

imagesYZDO7E8E

The television show Friends was immensely popular. It won 62 Primetime Emmy Awards. According to the Nielsen ratings, it was within the top 5 shows for 9 solid years. Personally, I loved it. Its message said that with the right friends, we can weather anything that life throws at us.

But why was this show so popular? It wasn’t by chance that it became a television giant. Today we’re going to comb through the reasons why I feel the show was successful and how you can use these methods to improve your writing.

An Expert with a Degree or a Self-Taught Smarty?

Angst Anarchy

Admin O of  An Opinionated World is sharing his thoughts on expertise via a mini-rant.  Who doesn’t like an nicely opinionated mini-rant now and then?  The question he’s tackling: Do you need a degree to be an expert? Does that happy little piece of paper make you legit? Take it away, Mr. O!

One of the reason I created my blog a year and a half ago was to voice my opinions, opinions that were sometimes listened to but not often considered valid because I am not an “expert” on the topic. I am amongst the many people who are ignored because the knowledge we speak was not taught to us for years in a classroom and later justified with a piece of paper that says we “passed” the subject. It greatly annoys me when a perfectly legitimate source of information is ignored because they don’t have a degree stating that…

Believers gotta stop freaking out

Chris Martin Writes

This was my Facebook status earlier today.

Why should it truly matter if people say Xmas or Happy Holidays? If we’re fighting that, it just reveals that we are moved by what people do or say. Stop shouting “Keep Christ in Christmas” and “He is the reason for the season.” If we’re saying those things while judging others, our witness is a big fat zero. Live a life that demonstrates God is on the throne of your heart. Walk in love.

As believers, we get so caught up in what this world is doing, that we tend to forget about why we’re actually in the world.

In Matthew 24, Jesus talks about the end of the world, the last days. Verse 12 says,

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

I’ve always assumed that verse is talking about people who aren’t saved.

What if He’s…

Rainy Days

feeling cool when it’s raining 🙂

Ramblings of a College Introvert

It’s raining.

Honestly, I kind of just want to end it there because rain makes me feel so lazy. It makes me want to grab a cup of hot chocolate, pop in a dumb chick flick, and hibernate in bed. I love rain. It’s soothing and seamless and dynamic. It also gives you an excuse to be unproductive and feel damn good doing it.

But the thing about rain is that it’s only so comforting and compelling when you’re sheltered from it. Rain makes you nostalgic. Rain makes you safe. Rain makes you sleepy. Rain doesn’t make you want to get your ass out of your warm blankets and go for a hike. Or jog from your dorm room to class. The reality is that rain is cold and wet and messy. The beauty of rain is transmitted to us through the window, through the soft staccato raps on and…

LATEST TECH

TaserBodyCam-640x353

The inevitable future of police bodycams: Video or it didn’t happen? Perhaps the best indicator that the on-officer camera is an idea whose time has come is that business journals are now producing whole articles about the market gains of the companies that provide them. TASER International, Digital Ally, and GoPro have all seen dramatic gains in their valuations as the police surveillance market quietly begins to pick up momentum. Pending Congressional approval, one key driver of this potential windfall will be a new funding initiative from the Obama administration to provide $263 million to improve community relations with police through cameras.
