RIP Whitney Houston

11 Feb

I just found out that Whitney Houston passed away today. I’m super shocked. It’s hard to believe that one of the biggest legends in music is gone at such a young age.

Any of my friends would tell you how much I loved Whitney. How can you not? Whitney Houston was the performer I grew up watching and listening to. There was never a song I didn’t like. As a child my friends and I would sit around in the summer listening to her tapes on someone’s radio. When I first got my license some of my favorite memories was driving and screaming “I Want to Dance With Somebody” with my friends on the way to the shore. Why just a few weeks ago I was jamming out to her music during karaoke.

This is the second of my music icons that have gone too soon to addiction in the seven months. It’s pretty heartbreaking to know another voice is silenced, especially one as legendary and breathtaking as Whitney Houston.

RIP Whitney. You’ll always be my diva, girl.

RIP Steve Jobs

There is so much I could say about Steve Jobs and his company. After all, I grew up as Apple products grew. Sitting in my first computer  classes with the big, colorful, plastic Macs, staring in jealousy at kids on the bus while they played with their brand new iPods, setting up my MacBook Pro before I left for college. I’m even writing on my Mac right now as I remember the memories that Steve Jobs has provided in my life.

Right now it doesn’t even seem real that Steve Jobs is gone. What could take such a powerful and innovative man down? How is that possible?

Unfortunately, cancer doesn’t discriminate, and there is still no piece of technology advanced enough to cure it every time. We may have lost Steve Jobs, but I hope that his memory will inspire more people to fight for a cure and for an answer to this horrible disease.

Rest in Peace, and thank you, Mr. Jobs.
