    "While walking along a beach,

    an elderly gentleman saw someone in the distance leaning down, picking something up and throwing it into the ocean. As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, picking up starfish one by one and tossing each one gently back into the water. He came...

    The only way most of us can make a difference

    is to start with ourselves. Change comes from within, and people can't change others. We've all heard the quote: "Be the change you want to see in the world."

    Waiting in line today at Taco Bell,

    we pulled up to the window and the girl told us that the car in front if us payed for our meal. We got choked up by that because it's the chain if love. Someone did something nice for us now we have to do something for someone else :)

    Some people say, whatever life gives you is

    meant for you, is something you need, is something you are supposed to get, but that isn't quite true, for me, almost everything life gives me is nothing but a lesson, it's nothing but a phase and I always end up losing it but at the same time, gaining something that will stay...

    I want to make a difference.

    Even if it's for just one person, because that person can also make a difference. Even if it's something small like making someone smile, or making them feel important and like they matter. I want to make a difference.

    Recently, I've been getting really into machine

    learning. When people ask me what it is, I sometimes tell them that it's just a way to use math and computers to get solutions to most problems. If that sounds like too inclusive a definition of what it can do, that's probably because it really can do quite a lot. Some of the...

    And I do. Me being alive makes me a difference.

    My love for others makes a difference. You don't have to save the rain forest to make a difference. Not that it isn't amazing. You being you. Opening your heart and being present for every individual will make a difference, for everyone.
