Q: Why is it that no matter how hard I try, I still fail?
A: It depends on whose perspective you want to get.
pessimist would say that your objectives are too high and unreachable.
An optimist would say that reaching your objectives is simply a matter
of time and distance. You just need to exert the required amount of
effort to get you from where you are to where you want to be, given the
A pessimist would say that you don't have the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve your objective. An optimist would
say that knowledge and skills are simply tools to reach your
objectives. Anybody can learn new knowledge and gain new skills whenever
they want. You may not learn as fast as the other person, but if you
really try, you WILL gain those tools.
A pessimist would say that your efforts are fruitless and result to nothing. An optimist would say that even if you don't
achieve your objectives now, you can use the experiences that you
gained from that attempt in making better decisions and helping you
achieve your objectives tomorrow.
A pessimist would say that your
objectives are simply not meant for you. An optimist would say that you
only fail when you stop trying.
"Is life + love = happy?" -Lex
This simple question, coming from a 5 year old boy, made me think about how simple life should be. In our unending quest to find happiness, we try so many things, go to different places, and aspire for various goals. We spend a lot of time, money, and energy in this seemingly unending pursuit. And most of the time, we still come home feeling tired, lonely, and unfulfilled.
My life so far has been a rollercoaster of emotions, especially the first 30 years. But someone changed everything for the better. This someone made me realize that even though life has many ups and downs, love has a way to make everything better. It is through love that we can convert a good experience into a great memory, and a bad experience into a good lesson. For when we love, we strive to become better than what we already are. When we love, we gain our north star, our purpose, our anchor, our home.
That someone is none other than my wife.
To my dear wife, you know t…
Good morning my dear kambal! Happy 31st birthday! Sulitin mo itong year na to, this is the last year na nasa kalendaryo ka pa. ;)
Thirty one years ago, God decided to create a family that He will forever bless and guide and nourish. He started with the mother. She is a gentle soul with a very sharp mind. She will be in charge of keeping her husband (aka eldest child) in line specially with his constant desire to play games. To make things fair, God also designed her to have a constant desire to shop, first for herself, but eventually for their children. She will strive to keep everything in order, with her uncanny prowess in planning and foresight. She will be the perfect partner for her husband, and the perfect mother for their children. And so, thirty one years ago, God created you.
And I will be forever grateful to Him for that special day.
This is your special day. We may have limited budget, we may have many constraints, but always remember that YOU are special, and that is all…
Yes, it is a legitimate research done in Belgium. Complete text of the research can be found here. For those who are too lazy to read, here's the results part of the abstract:
In the sample of healthy young Belgian women (half of
whom were vaginally orgasmic), history of vaginal orgasm (triggered
solely by penile–vaginal intercourse) was diagnosable at far better than
chance level (81.25% correct, Fisher's Exact Test P < 0.05)
by appropriately trained sexologists. Clitoral orgasm history was
unrelated to both ratings and to vaginal orgasm history. Exploratory
analyses suggest that greater pelvic and vertebral rotation and stride
length might be characteristic of the gait of women who have experienced
vaginal orgasm (r = 0.51, P < 0.05).
Translation: Trained sexologists was able to correctly identify girls who have history of vaginal orgasm 81.25% of the time.
