He found a lucrative profession. Reselling sneakers, and he set up the whole business to do it. His mom is a Nike vice president. What could possibly go wrong?

The Difference Between Pain and Suffering

"It's gonna be me. I got teased a lot I got beat up a lot. They didn't understand and this was like through elementary and even middle school. And so you know my extra on air started to be created to protect myself. Which was i'm good. I'm strong i'm capable. I can do anything out. And i went deep into the mental toughness side of things. Because i look different. I was different. I didn't quite understand the power of my story. I didn't quite understand all the gifts that was given as a result of it in those early years right. I think when you're a kid what you wanna do is just it and you just wanna have connection and friends and and you don't necessarily have the maturity emotional resilience your ability to kind of navigate through that external narratives protected me. I've played back his opening statement. More times than i can count rationalized. The feeling of is being bullied as a youth. A result of his physical appearance after having his arm torn off of the shoulder when as a child he was run over by a truck a tragedy that he refers to as a gift and one that to this day has left its imprint on the person he has grown to be yet as a badge of entitlement he wears it not but rather carries it as a catalyst to better understanding the trials of others. He speaks of an adult chapter as he set stage for a much larger consideration. What started was i started to chase the what. What house what car. What amount of money. But i was young. And i wanted to take over the world and so i you know it was one of those things and when i say take over the world of the corporate world having no idea what that meant and had to really establish for lack of a better term a cadence of connection that was also empty. And i had this crusty exterior where i had to prove to myself more than even prove to other people how smart i was how capable. I was how i can do these things you know. I had all these goals. That i set for myself to chase the what they all surrounded by the age of thirty and crushed all of them by like twenty six or twenty seven. And i never really reevaluated. Successful in the world's eyes he was a man motivated by chasing the what's as he quested for intellectual honors. He was young driven to receive accolades confirmed his capabilities even to the point of in his words crushing it yet as he looks back in his words once again at his crusty self he shifts perspectives and revealing yet. Another set of life's lessons. I have a very rare and extreme case of growth hormone deficiency. It took years to find. Multiple specialists also perfectly healthy and nothing wrong with being to the point that i almost gave up and my wife finally one last push we went and did it. It took six months testifying that we finally found it needle in a haystack. But the two things that compromised where i had brain fog literal cognitive dysfunction and fatigue at a level that i had never experienced in my life. This kind of rocked me from an identity standpoint. What started to happen. Was i started to feel in a way that i'd never felt before my wife had said to me for the prior ten years before that like that. I didn't feel anything. I didn't have empathy that. You know it was what it was that i just. I kind of navigate. And i was like no no no no i feel everything i just i feel like what are you talking about. You don't know what my body. Of course i'd be all and like respond with defensiveness and like all of those things. Well i'm playing with my daughter. One day and i mean she was probably two at the time around laugh. And we're having all this fun. We laid on the couch to turn the show on and just relax. She leans over puts her arm around. My neck gives me a kiss on the cheek. And says daddy i love you and i started like out of nowhere just broke down in tears. Now men who cry i view as a sign of strength. I've just never manifested my emotions that way so it caught me off guard because i was like what is happening right now and i was happy so i was like. Why are these tears happening. When i'm so happy and it made me start to question if i'm experiencing joy in this capacity right now and i've never felt it to level before what am i missing on the other side pain. Fear despair anger guilt right. And so i started to really unpack emotions and i started to realize how much i was actively suppressing but i was passed it was passive in my mind. I never knew. I was actively suppressing and so that whole period of my life around human connection i had mastered it from a tactical standpoint. Not from like a true connection standpoint. Because i didn't have the spectrum of emotion myself. I didn't and defense which meant i didn't connect and so i used to believe that it was mental toughness alone. Now it's not what. I i genuinely believe those that unlock and go to the next level in this world in this universe are those that understand. Intellectual narratives those that understand emotional narratives those that can connect the mind and the body and those that can regulate between which narratives true or if neither are true given certain scenario so that we can then move forward so really one of the things that i believe most is the ones that unlock are the ones that not just think not just the ones that feel but the ones that think about their thinking that think about their feeling that field thinking and feel their feelings and it's that box that allows us to become whole as human beings and that's where we start get back to the human connection because we have to feel and connect for us to be free right and this is name and as a navigator of this human experience that we all living in sharing and in his signature style. He warmly extends his arms to give each one of us. Some most tangible council the world literally tells us to reduce eliminate or avoid pain. And i'm telling you that the world is right. That was a natural part of our evolutionary responses to protect ourselves back when. But that's not what needs to happen today. We need start by understanding. What's the difference between pain and suffering pain is literally defined a short term intermittent and a direct cause from something and alleviated once direct caused removed. And then what we do as human beings as we screw everything up by putting adjectives and other clarifying words in front of it like acute and chronic so cute. Kate maintains a definition chronic implies that the definition changes because it means that it's not short-term in persists after that direct causes removed. Let's stop calling chronic pain and let's call it what it really is which is suffering.

6 Dr. Seuss books will stop being published due to racist images

"With a report that six Dr Seuss books won't be published for races, images, and those books include and to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street. And if I ran the zoo, so those books will stop being published because of racist and insensitive imagery right that she's so out of control. That is Joe Biden's decision. He's a guy that came out yesterday and said, Basically, we are canceling Theodor Geisel. That was Biden. Well, I'm just looking at the AP right now. This just came across a little while ago that they're ceasing production. Now of these six books. I know they've been saying it that they wanted a I know that Virginia school district. Bandit because it said it was racist. They banned Dr Seuss Day and then I saw that President Biden also said that yesterday But now I'm reading that they're kind of jumping on the bandwagon, and they're getting their ceasing production of six of their books. It's a crazy, crazy world we live in now, when it's getting worse every day, and I can't think of anything more crazy than this Various presidents. This is Kim to this book burning essentially, is what it is. It's a book, but they did that in Nazi Germany. And we see all the signs of totalitarianism and fascism on the left from these a socialists, and this is just the latest manifestation. You know how many kids Dr Seuss books helped read.

Change your life for the better and happy to talk about that too. That awesome awesome. Well let's start our conversation today guys with the transition out of the military. Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show.

Change your life for the better and happy to talk about that too. That awesome awesome. Well let's start our conversation today guys with the transition out of the military. Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show. This has been absolutely amazing. we will share some next steps with our audience in the show notes as we don't have time to cover today but this has been so so great guys. I cannot wait to publish this here in just a few days once we get through the very long process. Now because we've been on here for almost an hour and a half.

"Chicago public schools are teaching elementary school kids in their classrooms for the first time in nearly a year. Students in grades K through five returned yesterday after several delays caused by a fight with the teachers union over the safety of resuming in person learning. 30% of students have opted to return. Some parents like sharing Bosco say they're excited and confidence. CPS has put appropriate safety measures in place, seen his teacher every day on the computer and his classmates. They'll be in masks today, but he's excited to meet them in person. You know he's been in in front of a screen with them for months now, so there is already that comfort level

Philadelphia Pre-K to 2nd grade students to return to hybrid learning in 53 schools

"Some Philadelphia public school students back in the classroom. On Monday For the first time in nearly a year, the city the school district and the teachers union came to terms to open schools in groups. Mike DiNardo tells us this came about after a month of mediation. The deal has 53 schools opening first, with more expected to be announced in successive weeks. The teachers union believed that the school district's back to school plan was not safe enough to protect teachers from Cove it especially when it came to ventilation. Now the mediator work with both sides, and the deal has the union's environmental specialist evaluating and clearing schools as safe for occupancy. The district caught heat on social media for installing window fans to improve circulation Superintendent William Heights says those fans will go and the district will use air purifiers instead. Teachers would report tomorrow to begin prepping their classrooms for the first group of about 2600 pre K through second graders well made all this news

The Personal Chef Chris Spear On What The Job Entails

"You tell us a bit more of what. These job consists of what's What's your role sure. There's a couple of different ways that people do the personal chef thing. I think most commonly a lot of personal chefs do the in-home weekly meal. Prep type things. But what. I really wanted to focus on giving people a restaurant experience in their home so i don't do any meal prep i don't have like recurring clients. I mean i definitely have repeat clients. But what i do. Is i build a customized menu preferences of my guests. So i send them a questionnaire. Find out what they like. And don't like any diet preferences. And then i show up with everything. I bring my china all the cooking pots and pans. All the food and i make everything for them there and then i go set the table and serve it to them and we do afford a six course meal and it's really similar to going out to a restaurant so and you said that this is something that you do customized in and as you have a null like repeat customer so it must be very. It's must be like a tough set up in business as well one of your Be bingoing ease always to look for you know for new customers one hundred percent. That's the biggest thing is this week. I'm good but next week. I'm still struggling. As of this point. Like i have to events and i probably need to get to more. And you know you're always hustling every single day just to get another dinner. And that is the exhausting part of it. It's not like. I have a set thing where i know. I'm cooking for three or four families every week. It's just the same as if you in a restaurant you don't know from one day to the next business is going to be like. And so you attended like culinary school traditional canary school while only on so you made a decision. I think in your career that union wanting to work at the restaurant betsy you work on Food service companies like decks. So so what made you take the decision. A couple of things. I think one culinary school is ridiculously expensive. I went to johnson wales. I got a four year bachelor's degree and came out with student loan debt remaining of either pay four hundred and four dollars a month for ten years. That was what i had left after already paying for some and you know i graduated ninety eight and when you got out what the market was looking like is at seven dollars an hour cooking jobs and i couldn't live on that but i found a job working in a retirement community and they were offering me eleven fifty an hour but i also got you know. Two weeks paid vacation medical benefits for a one k. All that stuff and it sounded great. So i definitely the finances were a big part of that but i also say just. I never really loved that restaurant. Experience the kitchen life though working till two in the morning just kind of i think a lot of the attitudes of the chefs working in restaurants. I applied for jobs out of culinary school in. Wisconsin turned off by the attitude of many of the hiring executive chefs. I just thought these guys sound alike jerks. And i don't really want to work for them

Top Tips for Teacher Teams when Collaborating

"Teacher collaboration when done right benefits everyone in the school community. And i do think that we need to do more of this. So let's get right into. These are some of my best tips and the first one is to become familiar with team development. I think that as educators there are times that we may forget this or we simply simply may not be aware of it. They're five stages of team development. And if you know where your team falls and development you can set goals to move from one level to the next and final ways to work through difficulty than the stage so the first stages of team development is forming your discussing group rolls and a team goals in this stage. Everybody puts their best foot forward. Because everyone's new the second stage is storming so this is one of the hardest stages because this is when team members begin to have conflict. Have a difficult time working together. They're working toward the team. Goals and the members will have doubts on whether the team is going to succeed or not and members also clash overworking styles and direction that team. It needs to go in and the storming stage. Yes i have experienced this. This actually does happen. But what made it easier for me. Was i knew the stages of team development. There are times when i got frustrated but because i knew the team development i was able to facilitate my team meetings better because i knew that this was only a stage and the team will be able to move past it. The third stage is normally so in this stage. The team begins the follow through on the norms created in the beginning when they first started the team or set up the team and this stage team members also see the benefit of being part of a team and they work towards upholding. The norms and everyone begins to respect each other. We have to be careful in the stage because we don't want to regress back to the storming stage. The fourth stage is performing and in this stage t members began to work together and produce results. The goals that were developed earlier are starting to be achieved and the team members feel sent of accomplishment and want to solve bigger problems and this is something that i experienced being a part of a team. This is actually the good part. The best part will need team actually starts to perform and you see the difference in your school community. The last stage of team development is the journey so this is obviously the end of the process to members. Begin to feel a sense of sadness because the team is coming to an end and we want to try to in this phase. Make sure that we offer some closure to the team and celebrate our

Us do have music as part of their school day. there's a quote for geoffrey canada That i'm sure i'm angling but it's something to the effect of if you wanna see what a quality education looks like. Look what rich people do about. Eighty percent of american schools have music and art as part of their school day And the programs that caught over the years. And we're we do.

"To be honest straight that's really useful. I didn't use any of the books or anything I. Just Kinda studied the night before and that's all they did. The Con- economy stuff does help. Like it's really useful. I think. It's Pretty good. Would you grew like a? Study that stuff or anything on academy in like free stuff online is good enough resources online that you wouldn't need but there's certain people that learn better with an environment. So. So, honest. And then it's a college. Out Reminder. How's your? Colleagues Light rollercoaster house in trying to be like a custody. Drops. Hard. To get used to install these I like living in the dorms. It was. It was nice. To be. Live on your own and all that have all their freedom. it's like a little hard but they make it really easy with having like the. Like the DC like the dining commons and all that just like providing food and all that for the first year. So thanks a lot easier. You have everyone around all the friends. So. I don't know I liked it. It wasn't that hard like Jane Fonda that. I mean finding part of that kind of like I always kind of did one like live on my own. You kinda wanted to experience that drives. All. Much. So. In wallets is used across name with. Guy Friends or did you Most To all or most of the ones that one here up to the same school but I did make like a like a couple closer new friends. But I mean I don't know me personally like they're not as close as eyes ones. But those ones are always. Eyeso-. Right. Now, you're in our second year and then referred you just finished i. Took Corey Davises Mike. Orders, of course. You say look. Club. Launch Procedures. Should be going better like grade wise but actually academics. Yeah. Everything's. Everything's all right. Everything's gone flat. I think you know where you wanna go everything's fine Yeah I feel like for now everything's alright. I mean I don't know what's GonNa. Happen in the future. That's Schumer take like before. This. Is like. I think you're unsure I yeah. I. I mean, are you still kind of? Math now. I didn't really feel like interested in the other topics and as for changing physics. After one of the classes from physics I was like Oh. Yeah. No, I can't do this anymore it was just a one night thing and I was like, yeah no, I'm not going back. You think it was the teacher. No, it's the concept. The teacher was fine because ended up having him again anyways or different class that I needed to take and he's fine. But it was just the stuff in that other but you know. I I thought about it and I was like I'm going to spend the rest of my life doing this. I, don't get it now I don't WanNa. Get later is not this isn't for me. Like. Math is something that I've always just gone so. Like any. People don't really old. try a little bit of everything taking classes randomly of something if you have a slight bit interested in. Stuff online about it if it seems interesting to you. Then like maybe take a lower class from that topic. If you enjoy it. Then it's like then that's what sticks with you is like then you would just do that. But. Other than that. I really don't know like. There's just kind of. That you just Kinda know is like that you want to do. They're like, yeah you're fine with it and all that. I mean it is kind of hard because I didn't know what I was wanting to do until I got into college anyway. So All right. So I realized that one time I school for asset clubs and extracurriculars. Went over to the eighties. Clubs join year, launch join both the lights on trafficking in the Asian American program in junior year. But Of Like Human trafficking other one's kind just like for. Raising awareness for like bone marrow transplants and all that. I mean they're causes. That's why I don't. But. It was just like stuff that was available at the time. It was smaller windows easier. More number or Yeah. I was to director for both of us. Like, a lung each a two years. Yeah. I was on the board both years I mean I did a few events for both of them but I wasn't too much so. We're being remember it doesn't take too much out of your time. A lot of other positions I think. Did. You like you volunteer for other clubs and? I did a little bit for key club, but I was really. I only really did it over there somewhere between junior and senior year those really yet. I didn't do much before that. You, go to like meetings only. One or two. With some people. other than that I, wasn't really like a member member. I mean, you're already Davis is. Probably. Was Okay. But you think it would have been worth your time if you on your like more of. A think it might have helped to. I think it does help. Volunteer, and all that. But I think it was like if you do other things, it's not like. That important to do that as well. You don't need to do everything like. 'cause like we had the martial arts thing and like music. So that was also kind of enough. Basically, I, think our affiliate was enough enough. But if you do want to like other schools than it was probably would be better. When you did your college how many letters of recommendation to give? One. I think to probably a good number but like unless they ask were you don't need to send one. So for the UCF, I don't think you needed to send anything. They don't require you to. And I don't know if there's even a sector for I don't remember. But I needed one for Lake because they asked for one. So just kind of sad one of the ask. The year. I think the subject matters a bit more like major first, and then like math science probably than English foreign language then electives, but it does teach you that you've got along with like particularly well, then maybe that one. Or a class that you did. particularly. Well in. I don't necessarily unless you want to go to private and all that. then. It's for part I think. All right that wraps up this episode. Hope you got some kick out of. Enjoyment some entertainment probably. Remember to finish your someone who work study don't afraid of the college repetitions boss uncertainty too late. So. If you go to independence, please apply to be honoree evil. It's always great to share your wisdom knowledge help I'll income students. The. Applications to.

"Memorization. Pronouncing stuff is just not my thing is i. I don't know it's Kinda hard. You know how there's like impaired programs online. Go the go. Ever. Used any those to help you our duty to basically like use a textbook or like just remember learning class. I think we try doing something online but the most we did was like China they in class learning, we use a textbook most of the time I think we had like worksheets and all that. And like activities on the board. But a Wiz live was used a lot in the class and I think that was helpful. In French Mike we don't really learn much. Yeah. Jared and everyone always the teachers like really. As good to know. So I realized that is your she bigger. Takes Heiki yeah. Would you say? Or like. Here W. C. was. Ways In. My opinion but you like reading and I'd say go take. The only thing is I don't like reading. Sounds like yeah. Or. Really. At least Davis you only really one or the other. Is If you get a forum like language, then you fulfilled one of the requirements. and. There isn't a prerequisite either really fulfils besides that. So you really only need one or the other. Have you ever considered I mean you could. Not taking the exam I. Mean I know you did this for human deal but like We generally consider that like meter twelve hours after that like I figured that like. Taking. Evangelism, her. Like the worst the doesn't like you lose a bit of money but like. You study hard for just. Kind of like newsouth you should at least get a free. And in most cases that gets you at least like unions. There's a lot that change since I graduated. I guess like. They're all on my. It's weird yet joy classes on life, and now they have its some questions some teachers can assign. There's all this. Talk. Our coaster. Enrolling in turn like size of seniors. prelaunch. Early glasses and. Match located directly us at least the forest is worth that much of a problem. The workout does get in the way of some things 'cause. That is a small amount of words not going to lie I. Did one more for every single one but I had to cut it down a bit. Few of them were actually just to fifty exact. I. Only. Wanted to find some privates, but I got lazy I didn't want to apply for them anymore after I realized that I had to write a few essays and I was like. Oh. And also. I would say not to do this but I mean I Just, what with my friends were doing doing hats last an exposition. Davis because that's where most of them went for launch. Yeah. I mean it is a nice school though I don't regret. It is just. One of the main things was that I knew a lot of people that were going there too. So it was just easy and everything. And Carlo standby like if you have at least one person should be fine. Would you change it now that you think about it like because. I know you didn't. Privates. I would've tried applying now. But. Like. Can't do that knocks now anymore it's like. Well, that's the problem. I did most of UC's. All of them except Ler But only those are the weightless thing. And I can't say I got like the Klein from them because I didn't like go off the weightless. Never GonNa find by. Any UC. That's what I say like. I. Don't take the wait list they. Gather decline. That's pretty impressive. I'll. What did you say like? Or like. I actually don't know but I. Really. But. I, guess like the Essays Rubik Part. extracurriculars did help. Because I think the. Martial arts. McLeod's did help. Like it made the applications, look a lot better and like. At a lot more content in them. If you take them all out. It's kind of like a blink application, not gonNA lie. Just, your Info and the. Like unless like you put all the stuff in the next fills up and it looks a lot better so I think it was that. I mean I know like one of my friends I don't really know what he's on but like what'd you cities? Forty Ninety forty nine. Okay. So he got like fifteen twenty. Sat Right? Yeah and he's trying to take. and He's thinking like there's so much out petition. So. If you want to go into like Ucla House can be hard. And Does something like robotic from I don't know. It doesn't hurt to get higher I had a friend that got one, thousand, nine, hundred and fifty, nine leaf and I think she wanted a perfect I don't think she ever got it. She ended up going to, San Diego But I think a higher score does help a lot. It does help you get scholarships and stuff like money and all that. But I had a friend that are also at twelve fifty and she wanted to La so. Two opposite end of the spectrum. Fifteen ninety didn't get into Berkley. But I think also because she didn't do much else. So the extracurriculars, do help a lot. As really the only thing but like a good score is like John Gordon to. Look a little bit of everything hopes. ABSO- life. Unique Act We know anyone took it ahead of. Another friend that took it he he didn't do that well on the sat. So we went to the act he'll get thirty, two, thirty, three so he. Said and I heard the was easier if you're like more into science. So it really just based on what you're better grab because both scores are taking the same value. You never read took sat. No is look at the one time so. What's Sport I You would like me take what you just. Even if you like a road that's more like you just never retail I would've tooken it if I got under a fourteen hundred. Yeah that was like my like bare minimum thing. Ask they. Yeah I fourteen hundred. If it was any lower than that, I would have taken at least one more time to get higher. I was fine with my score. So I was like, yeah, like I'm pretty sure I did study a bit more like took it another time I might have gone a bit higher. But I was like. I got really. Lazy. Getting on. I. Think, some people would like to know what was your sat's Strategy. I don't think they want to know. So. I did one of the Khan Academy practise sat's the night before. It was like one in the morning and I was I should probably get at least one practice at the end. And I took it. Told me I got fourteen twenty and I was like okay I remember that because it was a four twenty and I was like okay. I am a Muslim then. Heard Khan Academy One's pretty similar. Yeah. Off the. Helped, lead me now like going through like some subjects. Like with the review and all that. Like, concepts come up that I don't remember. I don't know about other. I don't go to those but physics and math like never quite a bit. But yeah, I took one of the Khan. Academy once and.

"Was fun. But. I didn't take them. So I have nothing to say about that one. I wish. I grover I think she's still teaches. I liked her Yeah Teachers Really. Enjoyed it a lot software year. Took physics. Ap Physics with a mislead. yeah I that class to? I mean. I was a physics major beginning, so it must have been something. I don't know I. Just kind of liked it like physics was kind of fun. But. It was really like the basics of physics like I didn't really get a good deal of, but yet until college and then that's the rest of it. Yeah. No. But for that class. Understanding the concepts really helps a lot. They're not that hard either you just think about it it should be. Junior year. I took psychology and. CALC AB and. Lang like, yeah. English competition language at that one. Laying. I don't know much of that. Owing it was all right. That one was kind of just What I learned there but I. Guess It's just. Knowing vocabulary kind of helped. How important would you say is knowing like those rhetorical devices in like? Stuff like that I think that's Important I feel you should be important. It's Like beneficiaries to learn like his us, they have a whole like this may be like, yeah there there was a lot like there was like twenty something I don't remember how many but it was i. think it was important because asked quite a few on the exam. So that was good to know. At least we went over that. CALC AB math I. Don't know how to explain that one is what to do. What you say is the hardest thing. I. Don't remember what the hardest thing was. But for some reason, the only thing I remember people complaining about was related rates. Always ask like okay. Optimization. But I don't know if that comes in. Comes in the end only very. I think they would ask you like one or two questions about it. What is that? Oh. Yeah. Some more be part. It's like. Oh it's like giving a rectangle like a given area or something. Like find the length of the sides that would. Have the most perimeter. All. Something like that ultimately or Even total perimeter find the. Like find the correct length and with that would make the area like the biggest. For the smallest in that case. Like so many ways. And math three and stuff like they would ask for only a few those. And I couldn't even. Use, the river stuff it's easy off. So I think people just get confused because it's kind of like confusing to understand that. But like if you just what to do, then it should be fine. All memorization but I like that class it was fun Guy Still enjoy. Now it's why make minoring in it. I find the topic kind of interesting psychology, human minus two. Members. You think reading a how important is reading the text. Owens like. Important. That's really what I learned like. Or? How I learned most of the time. Because one of my friends like the other person Alec? Renzo. Like sometimes, they do a psych corrections on what their wants. And like pollock a lot of those like super and just. Basically, you remember facts like, yeah. Like definitions of you know you know. I mean, if you do it and it's really good. It a bit Pacific some questions. But. Yeah I mean. I going to be in the first semester? And second semester isn't it? what did you change the visit? Just I don't know if I change reading as a whole letter. I just remember stuff about the second semester bit more I. Think he was just kind of like more that I was interested in and stuff that I found cool and all that. And also I think the second had less stuff 'cause like more preferably exam A. Bit Easier because you're going over everything. So broad. So wasn't ask specific. Because Something like that. It's like, okay, I don't know. It's not. Just. Like. Oh and then you. CALC, BC and. Oh yes. Fun Classes. Tell you a lot and like. I didn't think my own college, but the the friends I had that said that most of the stuff was kind of very very like the. Lower bio stuff like the intro BIOS. It. It does help a lot. And I think the way she teaches it is pretty good 'cause. You do learn a lot. And BC is just kind of midst same things like math again like. I don't know how to wait now. Obviously, just math how different. Misfire Suardi. DC Yeah on the show and you had your. So. Low. Say like how different? From. My ABC's of Eastern. I liked minority bit more. Saraswati's teaching was Kinda like. You've got to do what you do. And if you need help, she's there. But like I don't know the way she was kind of more. was kind of like we're focused on you learning like yourself and all that but like guided learning. And there's law there's kind of just like electric. I do prefer like the firstly more in college is really more justly the lecture one. But Both are okay though. I still find them to be fine because then again, it's like mad. Yeah, Madison a you know it then you know it, I don't know how else to say. Yeah I. THINK THAT'S Okay. All Ats? Other way. Would you say like you would? There's others. You say that you would have taken others if you had the opportunity you. Wanted to take. Some AP's and different years Those are really all the ones that wanted to take or I want to extend his work. Schedule conflict and all that. But I. Did want to think that one but that was really the only one. In amendments does have a lot. Like the other ones were like really language and all that, and you can really only do one language and I didn't I don't know person I just don't like languages. So I thought that the German three so I didn't take a baby example fast. You like Germany. was. Enjoyable I liked it. Until I figured out that foreign languages just weren't my thing. was just kind of hard for me. And I figured Oh yeah. No after I'm done. But I think it's fun for people that do enjoy it then. Truly the way teach I like to. Really. I mean they were just just aren't for me. It's like. Some people like Matheson for them. Far Languages No. It's just hard for me. It's too much.

"Into. Disneyland. Before going in like a security checkpoint. Some pretty funny moments where they're really what is this classical Iota Mike? Never prevented me from coming. There's sometimes that stop for a little bit. So this is an example. Before What? I like. You heard. Cyclones are left. Now bronze the actual interview. And because I did this while we're waiting in line for some the rights, it's not gonNA be like Send Queen is coming back from noise and announcements going on. I try to minimize him but you might be able to hear. Me, I can't really do much. Is, enjoy. A love. Right today I'm joined with. Travis. Greater You Second Year College. What College Davis UC Davis. That's very impressive. What are you majoring in applied math and maybe statistics With them. Declare the minor for psychology. But I started that. How's your timing college? Fun. Like There's a lot different from high school. Like These, better though I enjoy more freedom and all that. You're just playing your own stuff. The classes turn okay to like. they're kinda harder but like at the same time, it's like your own pace so. I think it's a lot. Better for. Most people. So it's searing. Host people listening are probably in college I probably like Ice Pool you. What are tips? For people to expect that. and. Go to your classes you know gone classes important. I didn't go to most of my class lasts border. Yeah. Thousand mistakes off. And then. See That was a good one. Going to class. But do you think it really matters a lot like the the great when you gets a college offers depends. If you still want to go more like if you want to go to Grad school and you matter if you WanNa do stuff during college matters. But if you plan to just like get a job after college and all that, then it shouldn't be the most important thing. As. You your resumes and stuff. You really only put your GPA and stuff if you're applying as you're like going through. But afterwards, you can actually leave it off and they wouldn't care. Because by then you'd have the moment everything. So. That's the most born thing. But I mean they do matter though 'cause like. Doing. As you're like in college does. Till I. Don't like tank everything but. Getting a B. or C. isn't the worst thing by far? It's like. You do like clubs or extra. into or like outside of school. I went to a few club meetings. I'm not actively involved in anything it's to school and all that. But. I'm looking to start the teaching stuff and the internship texture. apply for that now. I. Don't know when back to me but. I sent in most of the applications. Like sending the final. Transcript. I D- plans to join anything you charity dislike stay about the same like not many clubs. I know club or anything but internships and stuff I'll do that. I WANNA do one of those but probably not the club things I don't know. I mean hundred. Interesting and all that. It's really the three main things gonNA club, join the crowd or something. Or are you like some jobs jobs actually? Have you want to do something? It's one of those. Yeah I was about to ask like. I see a lot of people at online they always say like. There's He should be like. or You should do like. Different names and all that like many of you. Think they're important. Born to at least. Like Doing something probably really important because like that's the only way you'll actually like connections and all that. But. I don't know which was the most form but just. Getting to know people spending. Like an action that all that like the more people you know the better. You think. during high school math. You didn't do a lot of those. I was an officer do clubs like in the last two years of school. But in the beginning I didn't do much but I mean entered shifting something. I didn't do any. High School you think you would have done that back. It's harder to high school like engines of because I think they mostly look for like at least sixteen eighteen. And all that. So I think you would've hard but. I don't know I just didn't feel like doing that back then but now it's like getting closer to like actual. Adults of. Yeah. So. Considered like looking at jobs are like you have an idea of where you work. In the feature or after you've. If I like an office. Like. I. Don't know madness. Dad's numbers all the time. So like I can actually just sit down and do that whole day and I'm okay with that. We. Just. Look somewhere like. Or? Like I'll probably start with that or something like that. Is the easiest. Way. But I don't know like I don't want to do something. To do with science still not like. I don't want to do the science, but really I want to do the data part of it. So I, do want to work in a lab to, but I don't know. Any of those are open. I look into that yet though. Like you don't have a like a particular company minor like just like anything only. Like at this point. A job. I'm happy. I saw. Yeah. We'll move back because. Most people listening probably. Yeah so I want ads like. During high school. Like which AP's tape. Like how would you say? Tip I guess on each. Or something Karnal order to Human Jarvi and freshman year. It was interesting I enjoyed the class I. Didn't think the exam because I didn't gotta do that well on it but looking back, I probably should have. Because it because he examiners that hard you really think about it. Like they're important but they're not that hard. So I probably should have done it. It's worth the money. Like the unit are worth the money. Or Ninety five. Yeah like. They're not wrong though like ninety five seems like a big number now. But like each quarter, Davis is a five thousand ally. I kind of I would take the ninety five over that any day. that.

"About just being bored at home, having like thing to do except like it around and make music, and like watch Netflix all day. I mean I think the Corinthian has had that much of a negative effect on me. Because I do have like lot more time now to make songs you know so been like out a lot. More content may not actually working on mixed tape. That's GONNA. Sometime within the next few months, but it has given me like about more time to work on new music like experiment with new things I guess I'm a little more bored than it was before, but I mean it's not that big a deal to me. Just to ask like Teacher Music Dan mix tapes coming out. Called, teenage heartbreak, the mix tape and dumb, going to be ten thirteen songs I haven't decided yet. which songs on keeping in which ones I'm. GonNa cut bomb almost finished I'm GONNA have like a few featured artists on it can sue. Those are yet because they haven't got the versus back yet, but M and it's like my favorite project that I. Worked on this point yet, pretty excited, will probably sometime in July or August. Have at is pretty exciting so any thing from extra credit. Esso extra credit actually not sure because I was talking to Merle few days ago. We're hanging out. You know we all different things that we wanted you once high schools over we only have like one year left no as a band on talking to him. I was like you know. Do we really WANNA? Like go back in record this new EP I'm in. You know we might end up just trying. Trying to do a couple more shows if we can knock. The restrictions loosened up in in stuff and not really drop any morning. Music just played at shows and stuff. Just because no, it takes a lot of time energy to like a new record, and we just don't know if we want to do that since we only have like one year left together as a band, but we definitely do want. A couple more shows for we. Have to break up. So like after high school, there's not really a plan I guess executed. Yemen extricate. WOR got to end in the senior year because all going in different directions. I'm I'M GONNA move to La might continue to pursue music. All the other guys have like from plans of what they WANNA, do after high school, but extra credit will unfortunately have to end. NO IS GONNA. Open up a lot of new beginnings. I guess for where I can go with my music and I choose to do after high school. Positively. 'EM IN so he said after high school. You've found pursuing music. For sure I hope to get. To apply for in get accepted to allstate La and do their commercial music program 'cause thinking really like benefit me, and like maybe a better musician, and also because it's like school is really really cheap compared to most schools. Don't WANNA be in debt for like ten years got an Iffy. No, but musicians are generally pretty broke a ST L. as like my first choice, definitely want to go somewhere in La. Because that's where like the music industry is in like. That's what I WANNA do. I wish you the best of luck. This same. So, like speaking about school, wise, then house, high school like for you. You know to be honest. A kinda high school kind of sucks. You know when I was in middle school Black Watch like lemonade mouth. The Disney movie and I'd be like Yow Dude High School's GonNa be so sick like going to like get detention together, and like and like start start forming a band in the the teachers GonNa hate us, and we're gonNA like be so cool in like they're going to be kids getting thrown into loggers and getting their heads dunked in the toilet and like. Real, high school is nothing like that is like most boring thing. Sit around for six hours day in classrooms. Listening to people lectured me, but It is what it is I've made a lot of cool for instance high school stuff, so it's not all bad. Financially, not what I was expecting and done. That it's ending soon and that it gets to go on and different things in life. He say like you enjoyed no school more. Infrastructure Bill School I. Think was like the happiest time of my life. Probably at a cool friends like an it wasn't that hard left to study or anything. The stuff that we did was really that hard so I just I focused more on having fun, and just doing whatever I wanted. Now it's more it's like. Hours of homework to do each night and a half to actually study for a test or fail, and it's like while more work, and for like ninety percent of the stuff that I'm doing I'll probably never use unlike the real world so I feel like I, know I always sit around. Like? Productive could be if I was at home making music, but Let's whatever man I got. Get through. It's that I can go into the real world. Do It actually wanted to? Would you say you like prioritize music Like how do you balance music and schoolwork? Just try to like try to get like mostly BS in some as in school and so I kind of do the bare minimum of what I can to achieve that, so that I can dedicate like the rest of my time to my music and stuff I. Still WanNa be able to get into like in okay school like college, so I can't just like slack off on all my school stuff in only do music. I definitely like big time and prioritize my music We're like getting straight. A.'s or something because Newsweek is something. That's a lot more important to me that. Rebecca says that balancing music and schoolwork is something that has always come natural for her since she's heavily involved in performing arts on campus because she's so passionate about music. It's honestly something that she never had to worry about time-wise since she's never really in a rush to create new content anyway if she ever needed to prioritize anything due to crunch time. That's where she would be to ask yourself. What's happening sooner? either. She studies or prepares for an upcoming performance. Distance Learning for you. distance-learning learning on it was. Kinda cool because I could just like. Join the classroom at just slight Dr Drawing or something and doing something random might room at really have to like. Sit in a desk for hours, and also I can just like dip when I wanted to leave like most of my teachers really cared being missed like interacting with my friends and stuff every day that was like the only part of school like really cared about like I miss seeing my friends at lunch every day, and like you now at creek after school, but being. It's whatever I I just go to my acid. Sometimes. We just chill, so hasn't. It hasn't been all bad. So. How did you feel about school ending so abruptly? Honest like I was pretty excited when we and they announced that we were having like a break from school has a current and stuff. We're all celebrating and stuff because of our school. Everyone else was sick school. We thought that was pretty cool, but As time has went on I guess Kinda wish that you know. We could have had more like a nicer ending to our year 'cause it was really dislike body new at school was Never GonNa come back. We got out of school that day, and I guess it would have been cooler to have prominent stuff, Mike. All of the regular ended the year. But I mean no, it's it's not terrible. I've had way more time to do things that I actually wanted to. I can still like. Hang out with my friends in Siham whenever I want so bad..

"So that is school swat next up. We got names. I de name right okay. So I've kind of gone full a documentary movie. Docu movie. Assigning isn't it. I was thinking mockumentary. But it's a four is a mockumentary when it's sort of a joke of a document. Yeah he's a fake documentary. Yeah Yeah So. This is a real documentary. But it's in a movie sorta form and I shall explain hunker so this docu movie is about follows a production company trying to make a high school movie so the whole casting process of trying to find the right cast for the film and everything so this is a working title. Well I think this is. The title is called quota so Terry Long Time I think it needs much explaining exactly and I think the tagline should be quote a gone man with leads if as so people realize. It's not just mad. It's not exactly so This lot production company are being so like PC and so by the book with their quota. That even like with the blind castings gone like so crazy so like a Martin Luther King for example in the film happens to be like the two they give it to the Chinese girl and then and even though you've got really great male black actors the perfect for the role like when she. I think you should have it locked Yeah because she's fed up so I have got friend named that by the way. It's not just a random made up name. So yes so the whole idea is that they have to close things but the kind of just getting it wrong because they they want to make sure they get a trends on both both sides both sides of Trans They WanNa make sure they get like every single ethnicity but the getting like you know the the boy who works in the Indian Curry House with his parents and is an authentic Indian restaurants been cast as the blackmail still in it. It's all messed up. And so the whole idea is just. We're actually just watching production companies. Get this wrong. Is there a way of ramping up the satire in this because I think if it's too Po Face one of a better term. It might miss its target. I think there might be a bigger punch. If it's not played for laughs but satirized in the way you can you can give them an actual quota which they have to fulfil. Yeah literally every that's true. Yeah and also I think the whole idea of like safe. It was a black male role and giving it to a Chinese go a full. That was like even more of a p state because you see happen all the time when people are amazing for the job but then they just don't get it because of certain things because and then he also discredit people who have got the job because they are good at it because then it makes you think like Oh my just brings must be Hodgson. The direction and Sculpture Hanson. Plays everybody thank away so so this is a an actual so it is an actual documentary about a production company making high school movie yet. That's right so what. What are the scenes like? What's the story progression? We watched like we see that process but like where does it end up where we start in the process we could do well base it on all the other ninety s foams of high schools like basically like she's all that like ugly girl gets a makeover and then she looks exactly the same. She was pretty before which takes glasses often puts the hair down and all of a sudden. We can be kind rewind situation where we have. We see parts of the finished movie at the end. All we go to the premier and we see everyone's reactions and we see the movie like that all at the disaster artists does that uh-huh. Yeah this is like the millennial version of the cynical high school although like Witty High School movie because now I guess students that give them much more power than like four of his being the up whereas we were forced into crowbar into. Do you think kids nowadays by this movie night to you. Do I think do you think they buy it? Yeah I don't like the rough edge this kind of stuff that we were more attractive to. I'm I'm now damning. The entire youth of the planet should probably stop talking. I think I feel like because they've got so much stuff to watch like. They've got like all the calls like series and stuff like that they might need. Yeah not in the needy nutty. Yeah over saying that young people are just very needy very nerdy so stones World Morte died. Incident was one black and white says alcohol..

"Next story? This story is a little bit This is kind of embarrassing but like I kind of think it's funny and I think I even thought it was funny in the moment but it's still a good story so I do track sophomore year. I did track and it was my first year ever running like never done anything any running for before so I was not super experienced and after kind of training for a little bit. They decided that I would be really good at hurdles. Because I'm really flexible and I can jump pretty high for no apparent reason. Think is because I was a cheerleader. So like if you actually think about it. Doing hurdles to people even know it hurdles are. I don't think I even knew it. Hurdles were before I learned how to do it. Basically in case you don't know it's a track where basically you run over you hop you run as fast as you can and then you do this specific like leap in a sense over a raised hurdle. It's fucking hard in like it's weird that it even exists. It's probably the weirdest sport I've ever heard of like it's the weirdest track event in my opinion because it's so odd but actually fucking loved it and I got really good at it really quickly. I mean not like the best but like it just came to me really naturally and I tend to be the type of person where if something comes to me naturally at least a little bit then. I'm super motivated. Whereas if I start in I don't even have a head start at all. I tend to give up which is Kinda fucked up. Maybe should speech therapist about that? But yet hurdles was amazing. I really fell in love with it. But basically there's two events that I would run their one hundred hurdles which is basically like if you're looking at a track right like a high school track. It's like fourth of that track so you run that it's very short. Whatever and then. The other event is three hundred hurdles which is three fourths of a track. Okay so imagine this. Imagine running three fourths of a track. Wild jumping over hurdles. Okay and going as fast as you fucking can. It's not like you're spacing things out. You're going forward the whole time. You're sprinting the whole time. Bitch Lemme fucking tell you. That was not chill. That event was not chill at all. Okay hundred hurdles. Absolutely I got first a few times in. Jv that's okay though because it's still winning just not in Varsity but I was also not that good but I still got first a few times but JV though but Andre Turtles is great. Enjoyed that journey game. Three hundred hurdles never went well for me now. Let me tell you one time. I was racing actually at the school. That funny James Franco went to high school. That I was running the track at so fun fact anyways. I'm running and I'm at the last two hurdles right second to last hurdle. I accidentally off the wrong foot. My back foot gets caught on the hurdle and I eat shit I. My foot gets caught on it. I roll forward and I was like Oh shit. That's so fucking embarrassing. But I got up and I kept running and I actually placed second to last. I still didn't get last so I don't know if I should feel a savage or if I should just be embarrassing I tripped but the best part is that didn't happen just once actually happen twice except the second time was a little bit different so I was writing three hundred hurdles again and I'm coming down. The homestretch actually have a video of this on my twitter. So if you can find it you're the CEO of findings I was running and it was like I think the second to last last hurdle. I don't know what went through my mind but I ran around the hurdle like it came up so quickly so like I didn't. I kind of zoned out and I forgot that I was like doing hurdles and I thought that I had run over my last hurdle but I still had one more in. I didn't see it so then I just ran around it because I was on the end so I could just run around. I got disqualified. But I think it's a funny story to tell. Go find that video my twitter anyway. Those are my embarrassing high school stories. I feel like that's all I have. I hope you enjoyed those. I hope they're relatively funny or entertaining. Hopefully took your mind off the fact that the world feels like it's crumbling Now I'M GONNA go on twitter real quick and answer some questions. You guys had for me about high school or do anything. You wanted me to discuss about high school. First question was going to a Catholic school influential over your personal beliefs or opinions. That's a great question so i. She went to Catholic school as a non-religious person. I found it super interesting to learn about for sure but it definitely didn't really change my opinions on my own spirituality what that is to me and whatever. I've kind of always had my own belief system in a weird way. It not really necessarily match up with any specific religion or belief system. But like it's my own kind of thing but I'm definitely a spiritual person and I definitely believe in different kinds of things I almost feel like I pull from. I pull the parts of different religions that make sense to me in have my own belief system in my head if that makes sense like I literally like have different little things from everywhere that I believe in like I believe in Karma in like offenders you know what I mean. So it's I mix and match. I guess but I think that school is kind of like going to school and learning about religion. Strictly about Catholicism was like I might not necessarily be Catholic person but I can appreciate some of the some of the things that they believe in lake some of the moral lessons I think some of them are really useful. Like you know some of the stories. I thought were actually very meaningful for anybody. You know what I mean in some didn't necessarily resonate with me or somebody didn't agree with but I also don't judge you know what I mean so anyway. That was that what group slash stereotypes. You hang out with a high school. I was going to the type of person where I was. Kinda homeys with everybody or at least tried my best. I feel like I would talk to anybody and be friends with everybody but at my school. I don't really feel like there's as much of a stereo type thing because there was no guys. It was all girls very chill but I do think that the friend group that I tended to hang out with was probably more of the I mean I guess in a sense they were kind of the popular kids. But I didn't really like to look at it like that and I didn't really necessarily fit in the group personally. To be completely honest. I tried my best but it wasn't like it wasn't the best fit for me. In retrospect in you know whatever but yeah that was like my main friend group but actually ended up splitting off in hanging out with Like I would split off into small groups within the big group and kind of make my own little mini groups in so I didn't really have you get what I'm saying. Here okay next. Are you upset that you didn't get to go to some highschool events examples prom and graduation weirdly? No I did expect to feel sad about it but actually no sometimes I do like once every blue moon but honestly no because I am really grateful for my life in the way that it panned out and I wouldn't want it any other way and to be honest I would've fucking hated going to prom anyway and then I probably wouldn't out a date. So do you think it's next question? Do you think it's disrespectful? When people call you a dropout I mean to be honest. I don't really get offended very easily. So somebody wants to call me a dropout ruffle. My feathers go for it. That's fine I call myself a job as a joke. Sometimes I'm not but I mean it can kinda suck. I think the reason why it sucks the Moses because I was a good student and I worked really hard at school and it was like something that was really important to me at the time. And like somebody calling you drop out can kind of make you feel like? Oh well. All that work was for nothing just being called a dropout for like getting straight as my entire life you know what I mean that kind of can blow because it makes you feel like all your work went to Shit but at the same time. I know that I worked really hard at school and I know why I left school and I know that I technically completed high school in so people can kinda say what they want and yeah might be. But I'm not going to get offended. I try my best not to get offended my favorite subject. That's kind of an innocent question. My favorite subject was science. I loved biology a lot. It was really for some really good at biology. I don't know why I just killed that. Shit our next question. Somebody asked me if they should bring their own lunch or eat at the cafeteria. I'm assuming that you are not in high school yet. So you're going to be there soon because you'd probably know whether or not this food at your schools. Good or not. If you decide based on that we'll let me tell you I've never liked to school lunch all right. I've never fucking like that. It's nasty I feel. There's germs everywhere. I would say. Bring your own lunch. Although at my private school the second year I was there. They provided lunch because it was part of our tuition so we just got to eat for free in the food was like I mean it was all right but like it was good in the beginning when they first went in the beginning of the year and then they just started getting lazy and then it tastes like shit so and the lines were really long. Bring your own. Lunch is kind of the move in like it's also a lot healthier like you know what's going into that shit but I also think that if you're good school lunches in it's like affordable or whatever then do that full your heart babe on you next question. Have you ever cried? Because you've got a bad grade. Fuck Ya yes like a thousand times. I would get so upset with myself. I've cried in the bathroom of her grades in. For what for me to call the fucking dropout dammit. I wish last question about school. What do you miss most about it? Actually nothing so anyways. That's actually nothing. I literally don't Miss Anything about highschool..

"Tom prince Francis back, and Roger Weiss, we are back to full strength on the show. And we are talking with cell Costantino was announced that he is step down at Niagara Falls high school of the basketball program and before Roger has a question for you next. Oh, yes. L what I wanted to ask you, and you may have slightly headed towards it's hard to tell because of social media and people can miss identify themselves. But some of the the people that have either you hear what they say directly or they might say directly to you. Tony alluded earlier that you know, you could walk down the halls of Niagara Falls and find five guys, you know, not only beat your team. They would beat him handily is the element that you're causing all these problems related to that element is opposed to the players the people directly related or friends of the people that are on your current team. I let me say I don't know like five guys that could beat my team this year. I have a pretty good team. One year that was the one year that we were seven and thirteen that was towards the beginning. I will always live in infamy. Obviously is the only losing poaching. But whatever, that's okay. I gotta I gotta be known for. So, you know, what's funny? Like like, again, I everything always gets dressed down to parents. And because there are those situations. I would have to say I have had some tough parents in the past don't get me wrong. But this year's group of parents were really good. They were really good. I think we we get a small crowd of people that come and they come to games, and they try to make themselves relevant, and maybe dangerous don't have much going on like we you know, we go to high school basketball game to watch high school basketball players. We don't go there to watch a coach coach for ref ref or people in the stands who in holler. So I just think it it's for the small group that was burdensome tummy throughout. The years. I think it was people trying to make themselves relevant who maybe they just don't have a whole lot going on. So not necessarily even related to the kids on your team. No, no, no. You know, I I had a situation a couple of years ago, where gentleman was screaming and crazy and every now, and again, I very fortunate from a district standpoint that our athletic director handled every situation that came about nobody ever turn thing. Everything everything in our school community from our superintendent to our AD to our administrators to our teachers Clinger's in the building everyone has been nothing, but supportive in my time there, so the important thing is when people walk in the gym, you can't look at them and say, this is a bad thing. We everything has reaction here. But I had a situation where one of my kids would be recruited by a college coach. And the guy called me after the game. And just I got ask a question that guy's not related to him. And I was kind of like, no, no, no, no. But the guy was yelling things to the kids. Don't listen to this or do your own thing or do this? And that and I don't think those people realize how quick if I'm lucky that I had a relationship with the college coach or could have affected the kids recruitment. Hey, good morning to you Frank Wolf, w we really appreciate you taking your time to join us. I talked to a number of former players last week after the announcement was made and the influence you had on these gentlemen was overwhelmingly positive in the things they had to say about you was almost like you were a guide to them. You went above and beyond. For a lot of them. And not all of these kids were blue chippers there. You had kids that made me not have ever seen a lot of time on the floor that were very cap lamented of how you handle them throughout their high school career before they made it to high school. You had known them through the PAL. And even after how you'd stayed in touch with them and one guy in particular said to me because I had asked him he said what's going on up there because I'm on social media, and I see how they attack this guy day after day year after year, and it's the same for five guys. And this guy said to me, and he was one of your top players. I'm not gonna say his name. He said Frank those guys couldn't play and they were upset because they thought they deserved more time. He's like Frank. They were not good enough to play on that team with me. They weren't they weren't good enough, and they're heartbroken and they're upset because they weren't good enough to play and they couldn't handle it because their friends are playing well and they're sitting on the bench. And there was a reason why there were sitting the bench because they weren't good enough to play egos. They're still bent out of shape, you know, five ten fifteen years later, whatever it is. You know, I know you'll have been in nine years, but they're still bent out of shape, and sell it gets to me sometimes to hear when I a good man who goes out of his way to help people gets beat up through social media, and some you, and I know you're listening to some you guys oppose stuff about sell. You guys are so off you guys are off your rockers khloe what you're talking about one of us. Think you were going d one or d two you see all these guys making all this money. And you think you're gonna make it, you know, there's more to life than basketball. There's more to life than high school sports and seal Constantino is one of the coaches in western New York that made put an emphasis on what are you gonna do when it's all said and done when you can't put that jersey on anymore. How much better are you in life sale was raised men here? And look what happened L, Monaco. You know, it's the same thing. These parents step over the boundaries. How about sister Maria? This is another one. Yeah. You can go on and on about you know, coaches being let go for different reasons of people have not figured out that they have power. They have an avenue to out a coach that they don't disagree with maybe the coach yelled at their kid during practice, and they don't like that, you know, in this today's day and age where our feelings are hurt at the drop of a dime. Anthony in my day. I would have killed the be the fifteenth guy in the basketball team the fifty guy and the baseball team the thirty third guy on the football team. Just once in each one of those sports, there's a team picture C number. Right. I don't know fourteen. That's roses number saw us at number fourteen. Pence me fifty years later. I would have loved to have been. I wasn't good enough. I realized we're in a time period. Where people the armchair quarterback thinks they know more what's going on out there. I mean, come on. We've all done that we stayed at home, and we alad scream at whoever the Buffalo Bills coaches because we think we know more you don't you? Dope. No more. Coach. Why don't you tell coach or become you? Hold back. I gotta say the resumes for that head coaching job have to be a stack this high right now, the people you see on social media going about how much they know about basketball. How great a coach they would be if they had a guy like Willie Lightfoot or whatever if I had them we do this. Oh, yeah. Put your resume impel put your resume and can you show up for work on time? Can you show? Can you hold a job number one? Let me give you an example. All right. You know? Every off season. I'll I'll watch courses and do things on coaching football. I think I have a pretty good handle on the game of football. Then I'll sit down with a high school coach and realize I don't know Jack Jack compared to this guy. So you know, you gotta you gotta knock it off as a fan. It's okay to be upset when your team loses. I get that. Or you didn't get but don't pretend that you know, more than the coach out there. So I'm sure that drives you nuts. Yeah. I let me tell you. I even have my name mentioned was just a marine, and I mean, L Monaco's, a friend of mine, and I respect him for all his years of basketball. And the fact that what he's done to help kids too. So I I feel very lucky to even be mentioned with with those names. Yeah. You know it. You try to get past it in ten in a different world. You know, when I first started over like. My, you know, my my son was only two we obviously not coming into games, not this and that I could take it a little bit more and don't get me wrong. This is not a bad thing. Like, we I'll tell you this. I have received so much positive feedback from the community and the Niagara Falls community. College coaches, high school coaches, the whole western New York community, and I have received some negative feedback. But that's okay. You need that negative feedback at times to keep you humble and keeps you grounded. And it makes you appreciate all the good thing. If you don't have a little bit of negativity. What was the reaction from the high school community? I mean, you know, an awful lot of high school coaches out. There have many reached out to you to ask what happened or to talk to you about it. I've gotten a ton of calls and emails that were really I mean as far as. Jack, leisure mcquaid. I mean, all the local guys Ryan fruit show at Albany academy. Guys that you get to know over the years, and you think you I like to think. Always dealt fairly with the mall. So we develop a friendship, you know, how it is coaching becomes its own little union. Sure on point. I think one of the things that that coach local cope sent me was you know, I know you didn't why all of this which I really did. And again, you know, what I really I really wanted to move on and be passed this. The only reason I really did. Today's show is is I know what is good. You guys are for western New York high school sports. And I I appreciate what you guys do not just for basketball. But for all the sports, but I'm hoping this is my last one I'm hoping this is yet. But the one local know what? It goes. Hopefully, if anything good come from it. It opens up the conversation awareness and not just in high school basketball. But maybe the guy running the travel hockey or the little league baseball sits down with this people say okay, well before the steamrolls us, and we're. More famous for the wrong things. And we wanna be are. We going to handle these situations. So hopefully, some good comes from it. Yes. Well, let me ask you this coach a the other coaches at Niagara Falls high school in the various other sports have any of them been harassed throughout their careers in the community. Or is this strictly a basketball thing? Well, I I can't speak for any of them. And I don't I can't say he I remember this guy told me this and that so I I I of my personal knowledge. I say, no, I will say basketball is kinda like the flagship program. You know what I mean? Like right all the success from the lease L days to the old five team to you know, I mean, it's just been big. Again. I I appreciate I console. Appreciate the on the court success. But I I hope that's not what I remember. Like, I look right now, I always tell people they say how many wins you can I really need it challenge corny. But I don't know my record. I know I got twenty two kids that have graduated from college or currently in college. I got to the military, and I got four seniors this year that are all set to go to college. Not all those kids play basketball. And I certainly don't mind to take credit for that. I just like I just want the fact that that is a culture of what we're trying to do with student athletes is Niagara Falls. And that's absolutely outstanding. That's what it's all about. What's next for you sell? I know again how much you love coaching. And hey, if you ever watch we have roommate Niagara Falls junior football club. If you wanna.
