People-Watching

People-Watching was an experimental blog project started in February 2011 by Jordan Bates.  It is a rather miscellaneous blog, with somewhat of a focus on life philosophy.

Jordan Bates

I am a 20-year-old student, serious writer, and hopeful entrepreneur.  Currently,  I am an English major and Philosophy minor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  I am also the Recruitment Chairman for the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity at UNL.

People-Watching served as a test blog and has allowed me to become familiar with blogging on WordPress.  For my first experiment with blogging, I have been very happy with the progress I feel I have made over the past few months using this blog.  I have developed several ideas for future blogs and have recently begun putting them in motion.

People-Watching has now become my original baby where I will continue to post random pieces that do not fit with any of my other blogs.  This blog contains a lot of ranting and philosophical writing, but I try to sprinkle in random articles, poetry, and other miscellaneous samples.  I hope something catches your eye.

“Most people are about as happy as they decide to be.”
Abraham Lincoln

“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask.  Act.  Action will delineate and define you.”
Thomas Jefferson

“Man is born to live, not to prepare for life.”
Boris Pasternak

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
Nelson Mandela

“Man is a universe within himself.”
Bob Marley

“I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and new.”
