intellectual/mind provoking/stimulating books?

Hey guys, Does anyone know of any good intellectual/mind provoking/stimulating books/ or one of those life kinda books? I don't mind a bit of fiction as well. I have been recommended to read poor dad and rich dad which seems to be a must read going by the reviews i have received from friends and families. Books like poor dad rich dad, would be great as well. Any pdf links or ebub will be great Thanks!

anyone else feel like this?

Hey guys,  I am 21, about to go into my final year of uni but i am feeling..kinda lost? I am doing a degree in which i don't want a career in, i haven't got a clue as to what career i want to pursue, majority of my friends have all got their future careers after uni - all planned out. I mean, i have always been like this since i was a kid. Never been sure of what i wanted to do. As a child, i never did have a childhood dream or anything. When people would ask me, i would be like "dunno", where as my friends  would be like "footballer", "astronaut" or some shit like that. I just feel like i am wasting time.  I have a rough sketch of aspects of a career i would like to pursue but i am not even sure if it exists lol. I know it's the real world but i have always been dead set against, the whole office 9 to 5 work lifestyle. To me, that's not life. I can't see myself doing something so routine. Here's a couple of aspects of a career i would like to have (not even sure if it's real at all haha);  - something that would allow me to travel around the world - something that would not keep me office bound and involve me having to live the 9 to 5 life, maybe 3 or 4 days a week at work or somrthing (ok, maybe the idea about the 3 to 4 days is a bit unrealistic lol)  -something will allow me to be creative. I don't want to be the guy that writes articles and whatever about creative people (muscians, artists etc). I want to be the guy doing the creative thing ..if you get what i mean? - something that will involve music and maybe fashion -something that will allow me to earn a lot of money. I am the eldest of my family.. -something that will allow me to be recognized or somesort I know this sounds impossible but i certain that there must be a career out there that matches at least 3 of the aspects mentioned above. *sigh*. Well, hopefully someone here can help me out. I just don't see the point in settling for a career which i don't enjoy or want but just doing for the sake of money

tips to make afro grow faster?

hey guys,  Anyone got any tips as to how i could make my fro grow faster? I am stuck in that middle/awkard phrase and want it grow out more but faster. I know hair grows in it's own time but there must be something i could use to make contribute to faster growth, right? i have got the protein intake, sorted. I haven't permed or texturied or any of that. I strictly use castor oil and sulfur 8 every morning. I did use those biotin/msm pills at one point but it got to expensive and i really don't like the whole aspect of depending on pills. If it's any consolation, i have that really nigerian nappy hair lol

other hairstyles for black dudes?

Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone knew any other alternative haircuts or hairstyles for black guys, that is cool and just different from what everyone else is rocking? I am not talking about eye catching/all eyes on me/ wacky/ attention seeking different. Just something different from the usual high top fade everyone is rocking or the dreads. I haven't got much hair (like mini afro level) so, i'm kinda limited. Anyone know of any alternative haircuts or something that i could get, in which i will still be able to have some hair left? I don't want to any of those old school low cuts either. Thanks
