Few of the decisions you make in your 20’s will make or break your entire life. Try not to feel pigeonholed into keeping a career you hate or a relationship that’s gone stale because you’re “already on this path” and you feel like breaking up or quitting will “set you behind” on the track. Life’s too short to toil away at something that isn’t making you happy in the long term; decide what’s worth giving up.
This article made me feel better about us renting! I still want my upstairs downstairs backyard white picket fenced house one day! While the article says you are still losing money being a homeowner, it doesnt beat the fact that it is yours to call your own and you WILL definitely get back something even if not all your money when and if you decide to move.
We found the perfect ‘starter home’ south of Orange County. It was to us just the right size and everything we liked about having a home but alas, we couldn’t come to an agreement on the price so *sad face*😔. I didnt realize how difficult it was to purchase a home in Socal. There are a lot of homes but to find the right one in a good area at a price you can afford is just plain hard and they take you for every penny you have. We just want to stop renting because we definitely arent investing no matter how nice the benefits of living in our current place are. Oh well back to the drawing board -_-
I love Instagram. It’s the only social network to promote true creative expression, without all the redundancy, clutter, and homogenization of Twitter and Facebook. And the newness is part of the appeal. Instagram is still evolving everyday, yet to be determined, a work in progress. It’s the wild…
I woke up today to find an email from Andrew…. He had a lot of time at work this morning! He has got some good points but I always have to remember this is his guy logical self thoughts which is right when looking at the big picture …
Just to inform you on topics regarding government policies..
Once you can use critical thinking and understanding of said policies you will be able to distinguish between political bullshit and truth.
Also, if you are a true Catholic, you would not say things you do about government because liberals believe the government should be the religion and are against religious principles and morals and the idea that people should and have the right to be responsible for themselves (most of young people today do not associate with religion which is why they turn to government and well liberals promise everything even when they don’t deliver! young people don’t care). Things such as gay marriage and other laws redefining how people should live their lives is an attempt to dissuade people from religion but instead give the government their money and increase it’s power.
Lets take some examples:
1st example (assuming it was passed):
Law: Limit Size Soda is sold
1.People feel like they are taking care of people not able to take care of themselves?
2.Allows foothold to “help” people more in the future by telling them what they can buy and how much?
1.People have to pay more for the same soda hurting both consumers and producers
2.Government spends more money to pay to enforce this (government grows in power and needs more taxes)
3.Freedom is infringed, opens up possibility of millions of obscure laws and ways for government to control lives with this law as the basis for it’s constitutionality
4.People might take even less responsibility of their lives as government more and more infringes or rights of choice
Doesn’t stop people who want more soda from drinking more soda
5.There are many other drinks with just as much sugar (juices) that are not included in the law.
2nd example (I assume you would want this since you want with similiar things):
Law: Give everyone free wifi.
1.everyone has access to wifi
2.people don’t have to work and can get “free” internet
1.Costs go up for people already paying a shitload for wifi to now pay for those who do not pay
2.Slower Internet speed now that everyone is taking up bandwidth
3.More crimes? now that homeless and others without jobs need smart phones and ways to charge them (or perhaps another government program)
4.Government ability to control web (no more freedom? China or North Korea ring a bell?)
5.Government grows in power needs more taxes to manage security and implementation of free wifi networks
6.There are no restrictions on the government bureaucracy that takes place (just like all government programs) and no checks on spending, also expect inefficiencies such as weeks to fix any problem.
7.The government doesn’t do anything well, chances of implementation in all areas are zero, leaving some areas paying for something they don’t have access to unless they travel
Law: Let all illegal immigrants through
1.Everyone can come to the US and be happy?
2.Need to keep worker base coming in?
1.How to control and track these people should they do crimes or take government benefits (that they don’t pay for)
2.No other country allows this, as they want jobs for their citizens
3.Takes jobs from citizens
4.Easy for terrorism, drug cartels, other anti-American groups to infiltrate
5.Puts burden on government benefits, cops, health care, homeland security
6.America has always been an immigrant nation, but has also always had a system to allow people in (to avoid chaos)
7.People that don’t pay taxes shouldn’t be allowed to vote and take advantage of government programs
8.People trying to get into the country legally would be getting worse treatment than illegals and dissuade law abiding people that want to contribute to society
9.Overpopulation - leads to increase in food prices, water prices, electricity prices, congestion, crime, health problems
Any other liberal ideals you have? I guarantee if a logical person thought through any of these (not to mention the actual implementation of these ideals would have even more cons and less benefits) that they would be against them rather than taking the side of what they think as popular as shown by a biased media. Socialism, Marxism, Communism is nice in theory but that is not the “utopia” I believe in or America was founded on of freedom, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Ask yourself if you want to live in China, North Korea, or Russia first before forming opinions that take America further down that path.
He has got a lot of passion with regards to this…. ~_~
There are always people you will be loyal to because they are your soulmates. They are the ones you can open up to without hesitation and know that no matter the distance or time, it will still be the same. They are the ones you understand and want to be in sync with no matter what goes on in your life because with everything you have been through, there shouldnt be any reason not to.
But I learned in order to have this bond, the same people have to have the same goals as you, the same values… You cant be trying to have these, you just should be… I have tried in the past to be someone with a different outlook but you will always be you no matter what and you will hurt others and vice versa. It is an experience and im always grateful for what I learn from.
I do regret not being loyal to certain friends from before because what can i say, i was young and didnt know any better and i wish i could have been there more but its only now i get that loyalty means a lot.. You cant be making all nice with this girl and know all the while she doesnt get along with the other girl you are hanging out with… that is just retarded! You are just having a great time going through gossip and sharing it with everyone else than you are being a friend. For these type of friends, its still fun and hanging out is cool but…you draw a line! I made a new friend some time back and i was going on and on about how great she was never knowing my bff hated that girl! Like… loathe! When she couldnt take it anymore she just snapped and let her feelings out and that was that! I didnt need any more reason because you love and hate for the person you care about.
Anyway i am babbling because given i will and have to make new friends here, i would just like to remember situations i have gone through and have to avoid. Getting along with people is something i will have to work on because i want meaningful relationships (which is something of a challenge here). It takes two i understand but like i said… Same goals… Same values…
“Somebody loves you if they don’t mind the quiet. They don’t mind running errands with you or cleaning your apartment while blasting some annoying music. There’s no pressure, no need to fill the silences. You know how with some of your friends there needs to be some sort of activity for you to hang out? You don’t feel uncomfortable just shooting the shit and watching bad reality TV with them. You need something that will keep the both of you busy to ensure there won’t be a void. That’s not love. That’s “hey babe! I like you okay. Do you wanna grab lunch? I think we have enough to talk about to fill two hours!” It’s a damn dream when you find someone you can do nothing with. Whether you’re skydiving together or sitting at home and doing different things, it’s always comfortable. That is fucking love.”—Thought Catalog, How To Tell If Someone Loves You. (via fashionfever)
'One advantage of marriage is that, when you fall out of love with him or he falls out of love with you, it keeps you together until you fall in again'
Friends ask me how married life is and i always tell them it is ‘mahirap na masaya!’ We dont post the pictures of our fights and arguments but of the ones where we are having fun and smiling and look like we are in our honeymoon stage ofcourse. But we have been having fights even before we were married. Screaming matches and tinges of resentment just like all couples and we were over the honeymoon phase even before we tied the knot. We love like hell when we do and fight just as hard at the same time.
He is a quite difficult man. It is not in his character to be submissive. Only when the reason, purpose or whatever you call it satisfies him, not even just for my happiness. I tell my friends he will give me everything i need and only ‘occasionally’ what i want, especially if it is too expensive. But i respect that in him that he wont spoil me, or give in to my tantrums at times. This is the part where he challenges me and makes me want to prove that i deserve what i want.
I have a lot of pride myself and to just swallow it at times especially when i know i am wronged makes me feel helpless and i hate that feeling. So i know that marriage has alot of these times and we just charge to experience and get over it because at the end of the day, we are partners for life.
"Two years ago, I was afraid of wanting anything. I figured wanting would lead to trying and trying would lead to failure.
But now I find that I can’t stop wanting.
I want to fly somewhere in first class.I want to travel to Europe on a business trip.I want to get invited to the White House.I want to learn about the world.
I want to surprise myself.I want to be important.I want to be the best person that I can be.I want to define myself instead of having others define me.
I want to win, and have people be happy for me,I want to lose and get over it.I want to not be afraid of the unknown.I want to grow up to be generous and big hearted, the way that people have been with me.
I want an interesting and surprising life.It’s not that I think I’m going to get all of these things,I just want the possibility of getting them.
Just woke up with Miss You Like Crazy (Erik Santos version) playing in my head hahahaha
Have you ever had a dream about a person, but in the duration of the dream, he changes from one person to another, but is still the same character? Ok I didn’t know how to put that without sounding weird lol….
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life…”
