A Wise Revelation: Grant, You Know Nothing

Posted on by Grant Oster in Assorted Wisdom, Featured | Leave a comment

I’d like to think that I’m the smartest guy in the room. However, it turns out that I often find myself saying, “Grant, you know nothing.” I have no reason to feel superior in any way, around anyone, especially when it comes to intellect. I didn’t attend an Ivy League school, in fact, I have yet to finish college; I’ve never thrown down with Jeopardy’s Ken Jennings, moreover, I hate Jeopardy; and I am not secretly a janitor that solves math problems in my spare time–part of why I haven’t finished college is that I’m dreading College Algebra.

What to do if You Just Got Laid Off or Fired

Posted on by Grant Oster in Assorted Wisdom, Featured | Leave a comment

fired!

To me, other than the loss of a loved one, I cannot think of an event more disheartening, more unnerving, more earth-shattering than being laid off or fired from what provides you and your family with basic necessities–food, clothing, and shelter. It seems to me, as of late, that everyone I know is being laid off. I’ve had four friends get laid off in just in as many months. As my friends struggle to find new employment, it really had me thinking (and to be honest, worrying a little about my future). Therefore, I took some time to research “What to do when you’re laid off,” and “What not to do when you’re fired.” I figured that I’d look into the information now, as it would be better processed when I’m not in desperate need of employment. The following are some helpful tidbits of advice that can help you or your friends in their time of need. Read more

Robin Williams Best Movies

Yesterday, we were all shocked and deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Robin Williams. We each simply wanted to share a few words about our experiences with the actor and comedian that brought so much joy and laughter to the world. Some of us talk about the joy he brought while others touch on the depression that took him from us far too soon. Some tell tales of personal interactions while others simply share favorite memories. At the bottom, enjoy some of his best scenes. Rest in peace, Robin Williams. Read more

The Importance of Henderson, Tennessee (and all Hometowns)

“Everybody has to have a hometown, Binghamton’s mine. In the strangely brittle, terribly sensitive make-up of a human being, there is a need for a place to hang a hat or a kind of geographical womb to crawl back into, or maybe just a place that’s familiar because that’s where you grew up.

  “When I dig back through memory cells, I get one particularly distinctive feeling—and that’s one of warmth, comfort and well-being. For whatever else I may have had, or lost, or will find—I’ve still got a hometown. This, nobody’s gonna take away from me.”

Why We Love Ole Miss

Some family and friends were surprised when I told them I would speak at my mother’s funeral. They would’ve been more startled had I told them I wrote no remarks before stepping up to the podium that day. I wanted everything to come from the heart and the moment.

As I began my short walk to the stage, I had no clue how I was going to begin. And then, it hit me. “Back when I was at Ole Miss, I wrote for the student newspaper,” I said. “The beginning to one of my favorite columns I wrote was ‘Saturday was the worst day of my life. It was on that day my mother asked me to be her friend on Facebook.’” Read more
