The Bachelor Pad/Man Cave

January 28, 2010 13 comments

I recently read an article on the Eagle. It is one of the most outstanding animals on earth. It builds its nest on a rocky cliff using thorns, twigs and feathers. After its eaglets hatch, it slowly removes the padding of feathers and twigs until the grown chic cannot stand the thorns and finally learn how to fly.

We live in one, we’ve visited some and crushed in others…Let’s share about the bachelor pad.

It’s a Mantuary. I feel every man needs a place to retreat and kick back every once in a while. A lot of activities go on in the pad; from watching sports, playing video games and being on auto pilot lol.

I think this is a stage not to be missed by twenty-somethings. We can relate to the eagle and learn that our parents need us to be out there and be somebody. Move out! Hell Brad Pitt purchased a $1.13million bachelor pad recently (research has it that pads help sort out marriage issues too!) Read more…

The Relationship’s Magnifying Glass

January 24, 2010 6 comments

Last evening I honored an invitation to my friend’s wedding reception. It was beautiful; the joy, the music, the food, happy times! They were happy together and made their December plans come true by tying the knot.

This got me wondering how long it takes for two twenty-somethings to make the statement almost every couple made at some point, ‘’We want to get married because we are in love, and we are committed to start fresh from here on. We’ve agreed we are not bringing our past into it – any past relationships, neither past hurt nor past interferences. It’s just me and him, we aren’t bringing any of that into our present.’’ Read more…

My Job versus My Passion

January 20, 2010 16 comments

Last week I was watching a Chris Rock special and in between cracking my ribs, a line he said just stuck, “Some people have Jobs, some people have careers’’.

This has got me thinking about jobs, careers, businesses, entrepreneurship and the like. We have been brought up with the assumption that immediately after graduating it’s time to go out and get a job. Is that true? Here’s what I deduced;

Whenever you get a job, you are trading your time for money to generate income. That means getting a job only pays you when you are working. How does it sound if you would still get paid 24/7 even when you are not working? Don’t your plants grow whether or not you are tending to them? Why not your bank account!? Getting employed brain washes people. Employers buy your time and you have a contract telling you what to do and basically who to be. If you were to pay for this article, would you pay me double if you knew it took me an hour to write it instead of 30min? The key is to identify your value for your time. Read more…

My New, Bold New Year’s Resolution

January 18, 2010 2 comments

The end of last year had all the elements of the holiday coming together quite nicely; Travelling, Family Gatherings, having your favorite meals… until the clock  struck midnight for the final time of the year. We raised the glasses of champagne to the New Year and planted a big, wet kiss on the person you hold dearest.

Now all the smoke has cleared.

New Year, New Beginnings, New Opportunities. You have to wake up from your drunken New Year Eve stupor and Get Serious. It’s time to reflect and do some serious soul searching. It’s time to do some serious looking into the mirror; it’s time to enhance your New Year’s resolution. Find that one thing about yourself that you would like to improve. Maybe it’s that project that you have been putting off that you will finally finish. This could also be the year you finally learn a new skill. Read more…

Universe, Eclipse, Life

How much do you trust in the universe?

In a couple of hours the world will witness the longest Annular Solar Eclipse of the 21st Century. This will be a historic event. It made me remember of an inspirational movie I had watched, The Secret. Some of us have read the book. It talks about the power of positive thinking to attain good health, wealth, love and happiness. The Law of attraction in the Universe.

What fascinates me is the concept of positive thinking and the ability to attract what you intend. The author’s explanation is that the universe responds to our thoughts. The Law of Attraction can be a very powerful tool in someone’s life and the key is to be as specific as possible. Act with intention and ask the universe. Think positive thoughts and let us do this in the once-in-a-century event and sync our minds. Throw away the negative talk and focus on the positive thoughts. Let this day go into our diaries and live to speak of it. Read more…

Music To My Ears

Music to My Ears

My day started off with a very strong urge to listen to music. Not just any music but the exquisite tunes of the amazing Irish singer, Enya.

That being said, I have a tendency of wanting to know how things come to be, how things work. I wondered how her music is composed and what specifically caught my ears was the sound of the piano. It’s a sound produced by an instrument that travels through the air by compressing it which in turn vibrates my ear drum at different rates depending on the note. I quickly gathered this from a simple Google search but got more questions, should it be about some notes/chords that makes it pleasing to hear, while some music makes me want to dismantle the source…
