I’m 40. Here’s 39 Things I Still Don’t Know

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York It’s my 40th birthday. Like any monumentally important milestone, it got me thinking about who I am and what I know, who I thought I’d be by now and who I actually am. What, I wonder, do I have to show for 40 years on this green earth?But here’s the thing. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that the older I got, the less I knew. I’m less sure about things I knew for certain when I was 30. At 20, life was a no-brainer: get a degree, marry the guy, get the job, have the kids. By 30, I had the kids and had no time to think about anything – but I could still tell you that breast beat bottle, that children shouldn’t watch too much television and that being a mom is the be-all and end-all of my life’s purpose.And now, on the big day?I’m glad that I breastfed my kids, but no longer have a strong opinion about what others do. My children have probably watched more TV than is acceptable by my compatriots in the mommy mafia.And is being a mom fulfilling? Absolutely. But is it everything? Where do my kids end and I begin?The answer is I don’t know. And the truth is that there are a lot of things I still don’t know. I have learned a thing or two here and there. I’ve learned not to have any heroes. Heroes often let you down. But that it’s okay because I’ve disappointed myself and I’m learning to forgive all of us.I’ve learned that I don’t want to be a brand. I don’t want to be defined by the things I buy or the candidates I vote for. I don’t want to be locked into a belief system that is so rigid I can’t be open to learning new things.Now the things I don’t know far outweigh what I’m sure of. Here are 39 of them. Maybe I’ll find the answers by my 50th.What I Don’t Know by Age 40:What I want to be when I grow upHow to keep it that way after I clean the houseHow to meditateHow to save moneyHow to make meatloafThe lyrics to “Yellow Ledbetter”How not to cry when I’m angryHow to thicken my skinHow to achieve great eyebrowsHow to be a wife, mother, employee and human being simultaneouslyHow to not order a second (or third) glass of wineThe difference between an alligator and a crocodileWhether Pluto is considered a planet or notHow to do a cartwheelHow to not care what others think of meWhy women vote RepublicanWhat happens when you dieHow to fold a fitted sheetHow to wear a scarfHow to organize anythingHow to achieve balanceWhy I can’t just use the fancy towelsWhy I need a pocketbook when I have pocketsThe difference between foundation and concealer, and how to apply eitherHow to be in the momentIf ghosts are realHow to disagree amicablyHow to be satisfied with what I haveHow some people don’t drink coffeeOr don’t like chocolateHow to code (or what that really means)How to do a headstandIf God is realHow Trump got this farWhat happened at the end of the SopranosHow to get through Joyce’s UlyssesHow to pronounce “quinoa,” “acai” and “manicotti.” I only want to eat the last one.Why pot isn’t legalMy placelast_img read more

Sports minister offers words of encouragement to young cricketers

first_img Tweet Sharing is caring! Share Share LocalNewsSports Sports minister offers words of encouragement to young cricketers by: – June 14, 2012center_img 23 Views   no discussions Share Minister for Culture, Youth and Sports, Justina Charles. (file photo)Minister for Culture, Youth and Sports Justina Charles has encouraged young sports men and woman to develop an attitude of respect, discipline and tolerance for each other and to safeguard their opportunities for development.Charles made these comments at the opening of the 2012 Quenchie soft drinks primary school cricket championship earlier this week.“One of the things that is very common is the use of our young boys and girls to traffic drugs and I am therefore appealing to you that you should not allow any body to use you and to take away any of the opportunities that are out there for you”.She also encouraged the students to be disciplined as this will assist them throughout life.“Another thing that is very important is discipline and what I mean is time management. If the game is to start at 10:00 are you there at 9:30 or 9:45? You should not be walking in at 10:00. When you begin to develop that sense of maintaining time it is going to be a lifelong experience because it will be important when you begin your career”.Charles also advised the students to maintain a level of tolerance which is of great importance.“As you play, and move around you may knock somebody and you need to learn to tolerate people because we have seen an increase of violence among young people. If tomorrow you become one of the West Indies players you are not going to stand on the field and fight because number one you will not get there, so your attitude now is what determines what will happen to you as a future sports man”.She said sports should be seen as a means of “promoting” peace and she hoped that after the students training and involvement in sports they would develop a sense of “respect” for themselves and for others.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Sherwood: Vlaar must prove himself

first_imgTim Sherwood has urged Ron Vlaar to prove himself again as the Aston Villa skipper prepares for his return. Press Association And Sherwood has put any contract talks on hold with Vlaar in order to focus on keeping Villa in the top flight. “He realises he needs to be playing. I haven’t even bothered speaking to him. There’s time for that when we are safe,” he said. “He is just concentrating on getting fit to play. Without getting on the pitch, he’s not going to be an attractive proposition to anybody.” He played under Louis van Gaal in Brazil and will face his former international boss when Villa travel to Old Trafford on Saturday. The 30-year-old is out of contract in the summer and, having shaken off a calf injury, Villa boss Sherwood wants Vlaar to rediscover his spark. He said: “We all know what he has done over the years but when people are putting their hands in their pockets to fork out money, they want to know they are getting value. “He was right up there with the best at the World Cup but people have short memories. “You are always looking at what people are doing now rather than a few months ago. “He will have far more options open to him if he is in the shop window that’s for sure.” Vlaar has only made 12 Barclays Premier League starts this season following calf and knee problems as Villa, three points above the relegation zone, battle the drop. His last game in February saw him concede a stoppage-time penalty and get sent off as Villa lost 2-1 to Stoke in Sherwood’s first match. Sherwood wants to see the fit-again defender help struggling Villa to a grandstand finish and warned him people may have forgotten his World Cup heroics. Vlaar starred in the Netherlands’ run to the semi finals in Brazil last year – despite missing a penalty in the last four shoot-out against Argentina – leading to links with Manchester United. last_img read more

Ivorian fury after Cameroon mooted as 2021 Cup of Nations hosts

first_imgCameroon won the 2017 tournament despite a number of their stars, including Liverpool defender Joel Matip, opting to stay at their clubs in the middle of the European season.The Cup of Nations finals, which began as a three-team event in Sudan in 1957, will expand to 24 countries from next year, up from the 16-team format used since 1998.This means that hosts need six venues instead of four, putting an extra strain on the finances and resources of governments, who bankroll the tournament.Morocco are considered favourites to replace Cameroon as 2019 hosts with South Africa — emergency hosts in 1996 and 2013 — another possibility.Egypt have said they would not compete with another Arab country for the right to stage the 2019 edition of a tournament they have won a record seven times.bur-dl/tdShare on: WhatsApp Abidjan, Ivory Coast | AFP | Ivory Coast has reacted angrily to the possibility that they could be replaced as 2021 Africa Cup of Nations hosts by Cameroon.After ditching Cameroon last week as 2019 hosts due to delays with preparations and security concerns, CAF president Ahmad Ahmad said on Monday that African football’s governing body could “give Cameroon more time” and allow them to stage the 2021 edition instead.That would trigger a domino effect with original hosts the Ivory Coast dropping back to 2023 in place of Guinea, a scenario that has angered the Ivorian Football Federation.“No Ivorian state authority, nor any leader of the federation, has been contacted or approached by CAF,” the federation said, adding that a letter had been sent to the African body on Tuesday.Countries struggling to meet deadlines for the building of stadiums, roads, medical facilities and other infrastructure has been a Cup of Nations problem for decades.Hosts Gabon were applying finishing touches to one stadium after the 2017 Cup of Nations kicked off.From 2019, the competition will be played during the June and July instead of January and February to avoid the club-versus-country clashes that have marred recent editions.last_img read more
