Ladies and gentlemen, we might have reached peak Carpool Karaoke.
If ever you needed proof of just how much of a legend Mark Hamill really is, watch the way he reacts when given a custom-made lightsaber at London’s Star Wars Celebration event.
Hamill is presented with the “Joker Custom Saber” — which comes complete with the Joker’s trademark laugh — by a man from Hampton’s Handcrafted LED Sabers, who tells the Star Wars icon that his customers have chipped in to have it made for him.
Life’s too short to skip out on pursuing your passions.
And it’s not out of the question that you can make a living or some supplemental income doing so – it’s possible to intertwine your artistic pursuits with your vocation through a full-time gig, a side hustle or both.
Hip-hop artist Hebru Brantley is one striking example of an artist who has turned his efforts into a career. When Brantley isn’t turning his ideas into tangible art in his Chicago studio, he’s exhibiting his work all over…
So many of us have a side project running at any given point – or at least wish we had one. Maybe it’s writing a children’s book, selling screen printed tees on Etsy, photography, or designing a mobile game.
Rather than being a big time suck that impacts your day job, research has shown that side projects actually improve one’s work performance and productivity. When we have time to explore what we’re passionate about, we’re more driven, creative, and happy with everything we do.
When we identify our passions, life starts to make a little more sense.
Some of us are passionate about philanthropy. Others are passionate about creating art. Fiesta the llama is passionate about rolling around in the strong breeze of the Houston Zoo’s leaf blower.
“Each morning, we clean out the stalls in the Children’s Zoo with a leaf blower,” zoo officials wrote. “Our llama Fiesta runs right up to the keepers so she can enjoy the breeze!”
May we all find our own breezes, our own…
