Feeling energized, to plan for a growth plan, to plan.
1. Growth must be intentional
– Daily habits, this is just what I need, though, I feel cynical and my mind keeps saying that everybody knows that, but not everyone implements it. It’s like growth for dummies, everybody knows that practice makes perfect but nowadays some people add another quote, it’s why practice when no one’s perfect.
– Enough, what I need to do is stop visualizing and start activating the visions.
2. Growth must come from awareness
– Playing to my strengths, facilitation and team building activities maker,oh, how I wish I could go back to yesterday when I didn’t get paid to do this, but the opportunity to teach people and instill values (that I probably needed to have more than my audience) is payment enough
– Reviewing, and getting involved with my college can be a good avenue, hope I get to start soon.
3. Growth Environment
– Failure is not the enemy, we have to learn to fail forward.
– I need a place where development is continually modeled. My work is convenient but unfortunately the opportunities aren’t.
Greatness is within. I hope I use the keys well and get the full potential.
Metaphor overload, motivated.
I really want to pick things up, just to get going and start preparing for my future life, I feel like I’ve been too lenient with myself, and I’ve been careless, which made me lose precious opportunities, hopefully though I get myself going, activating the greatness that’s within me.

I watched this one on my tab, so I won’t be able to share any pictures with this one. But it really shed some light on the topic of once again, attraction. I remember two “facts” that stuck on me after watching the BBC documentary.
1.) WHEN WOMEN ARE OVULATING, THEIR BODY STRUCTURE GETS SYMMETRY
And yeah, though unconscious about it, we all see it, even unsuspecting males. I’d even go out on a limb and say, maybe this is the reason for most of the love at first sight impression gets validated. I like this fact because it also validates a theory of mine, that women don’t nescessarily have to wear make up… at least once in a month XD, yeah, because the documentary also shared, that the reason why women wear make up more often, it’s because they’d want to replicate this phenomenon on a daily basis. Well I wouldn’t want my woman to be on her hormones daily, being irritable and such, make-up would do just fine *wink.
2.) WOMEN ARE BASICALLY ATTRACTIVE ON HOW SIMILAR TO AN “HOUR GLASS” THEIR BODY FIGURES ARE
Basically I like this one, because this description fits a special someone in my life. That lusciious hour glass body, hmmm-mmmm! and it’s all thanks to that high dose of estrogen, now, if women have an extra dose of testosterone instead, well, you know the opposite, and yeah something about hormones, the testosterone basically promotes strength in males then estrogen in females promote on how tenderly loving they are or feminine (tenderly loving seems to be a wrong description, but that’s the best that I can give at the moment XD)
THEN THE MALE PART
1.) MALES WITH LOWBROW- ARE SAID TO BE MORE ATTRACTIVE TO FEMALES WHO ARE OVULATING
This is where it gets interesting and a little helpful for me, this would almost certainly explain why women tend to have special crushes from time to time, and they wouldn’t know why this would happen, it’s most likely because of this fact. That women who are ovulating tend to look for a mate who’s more powerful or exudes the aura of authority. That’s where the low-brow manly man face comes in and steals the show. But most of the days, when women aren’t over their hormones (not meaning to offend you guys, well I we all know you have these days, it’s not something bad, we accept it, work around it if willing, then move on 🙂 then they’d probably go for the male with slight feminine features. as this types of guys are perceived as sensitive and a suitable partner for raising up a child, as the documentary states.
2.) MALES WOULD BE MORE SUCCESSFUL IN ATTRACTING FEMALES IF THEY HAD BIGGER, BODS!
Rock Abs! all the way! It is basically what every women adore, a pretty face is God-given and cherished, but a body that is sculpted by the help of almighty God is the one to for (especially because you can’t possibly train up your face to become beautiful, you’d need money for that one) Exercising one’s body also promotes that you are competent and able to withstand the temptation of food, and that you are disciplined enough to through a routine every once in a while.
BASICALLY, YOU LOVE WHO YOU LOVE, TO SOME EXTENT OF A REASON
I was never the type of kid to cried a lot, or the type that shouts and be very talkative. In a Psychological perspective, I’d say it was mainly because I was a Cesarean baby, I was cut out from the tummy and I never really got that “first hug” from my mother’s vag. That’s what my course dictates, and so I was a shy baby, and I’d just drink up my milk every time the bottle is filled.
“Oh! Empty again? that’s your third bottle, no more milk for you, I’ll put water instead” Every time she does that she says that I don’t really finish my bottle and I leave some left so I still have something to drink. Maybe it was because it was plain with no flavor, or maybe it was because I was smart 🙂 don’t agree? ok we’ll go with no flavor then, it’s your story after all LOL.
My mom told me that whenever she was washing clothes she would put my crib near the door so I can still see her, and I would just stand inside my crib, be quite and just watch what she was doing. I like saying that I was never a rowdy baby, because children these days are so high maintenance, I’m not saying that high maintenance babies are no good, I’m simply saying that I was some sort of a unique baby in our neighborhood, so unique that in just 8 months old I was already walking.
“Ahhhh! a Tiyanak! Help! Help!” A stranger shouted in the night while seeing me walk on my 8 month old baby legs towards her, she had thought that I was a monster because of my unusually very small height. And when my mom told me this, I thought awesome! I’d achieved a “strong foundation” since I was a baby (I’ve always though as the feet as a form of foundation because I like seeing tall people).
I was never a sick baby also, unlike my older sister who was always rushed to the hospital because of something, me on the other hand I was as healthy as an ox. It’s just the environment that got to me. One time when my mom just got to our house (because she’s from Cavite and my father lives at Makati) it was very filthy, to the worst of the worst, and that made my precious baby skin irritated and with sores, it was disgusting (my mom described it in Tagalog and I could not dare tell the words in English). My mom had to rush me to the hospital to get me cleaned up. “What kind of house do you have? Are you spawning rats and cockroaches there?! Poor baby, look at him, clean that house up! Don’t let your baby suffer any further skin diseases.” That’s what the Lady Doctor told my mom and my mom was very angry at my grandparents because of that, some of that anger still lingers until today, I can see it in her eyes every time she would tell me that story.
I was fat though, not like chubby fat but fat-fat. I was a bloated baby. If only I could find some pictures, but my cuteness level would have to be an 8 out of 10. Yeah, despite the poor situation of our house (which was cleaned after the incident) I was a bouncing baby boy with a bottle in both hands. I loved my milk, my mom says that whenever I would get my bottle to drink, I would smile first at her and then drink the bottle, how cool is that? 😀 I’d like my baby to do that to me, it made my mom warm and fuzzy on the inside.
I cherish my babyhood, I was independent-adorable, I would be able to put the cap back on my bottle and I would just be smiling quietly and looking at people, I never demanded anyone to come carry me, I just stand quietly and be myself.
“we can never be too sure what a baby will become until that baby grows up :D”
Anyway, I decided to create a series just so I can vent out any emotions hidden inside of me, or just I could clear my mind up for things that are more important. Also when the day comes that I don’t have the capacity to remember these things because of all the things I’m doing in my life, It would be a shame not to be able to tell future relationships about the things I think of today.
It’s slightly weird that I’m typing this while I’m chatting with someone, I feel like my life’s been full of “multi-tasking” lately and that I really don’t have focus on things that would benefit me. It’s not that I’m stagnant or anything but I can be more productive than what I’m doing these days. Hopefully this blogging will help me gain conscious awareness or help me focus on some things and also clear up my mind about things. I keep saying things instead of ideas, that intrigues me. Hahah.
Honestly to tell you (reader) I don’t really know what a Preface is, I just
like to call this that, hopefully this is right. What to do next, How to do it, Why do I have to do it. Questions that linger in my head as I type this words, we’re getting deeper into the jungle that we call James’s Psyche. Hahah! Just kidding, this blog will be as light as a feather, though at times it may seem deep but mainly I want to talk about the fun stuff that happened to me, as much as possible, but I am expecting some drama along with inspiring thoughts as well, and I’m quite excited to be documenting my school life this coming school year. Because I’m heading a guild, it’s called CIA-Guild (Christ is the Answer-Guild) And I have a lot planned, hopefully with the anointing of God I may be used as an instrument for His glory.
So, basically this series is going to be about my childhood up until to where I am now, don’t worry though, I won’t be referring to previous posts to save new readers some read time. I’ll try and make each individual posts stand on its own so it can be read as it is.
Hopefully this excitement won’t die out as the days go by. God Bless you all :D.

Basically I just want to share something about familiarity and where has it gone to. People used to think of an apple as something you’d give your teacher on a first day of your first year of your first time in class. Something very precious and something very special so that your teacher would appreciate you. For me that was it. Or maybe even you’re giving that apple as a sorry, as a gift of appreciation, as a bribe 🙂 or even as a prank. But basically the apple was a simple-plain old- FRUIT.
But still you can give an apple for a gift, as a sorry, or a prank (apples with defects on them or viruses) but this time you’re gonna have to have electricity and a couple more components to make it work. Yes, it is the age of the Apple that cannot be eaten but enjoyed to almost 10 hours a day or more. And it never goes bad unless you want to change to a more updated version.
Back then we used to wash apples, now, if your apple is drenched in water it might not work or get you electrocuted.
But this same familiarity is what actually makes these products as big as they are. We as humans only get to use a limited amount of mind power in our brain. So making a new thing seem like an old or familiar version, makes recall and likability more apparent.
And I just wonder what kind of things would they incorporate for future products. How about if Pinoys were to make an innovative product would they call it?
One is happy as a result of one’s own efforts, once one knows the necessary ingredients of happiness – simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self-denial to a point, love of work, and above all, a clear conscience. Happiness is no vague dream, of that I now feel certain. – George Sand (1804 – 1876)
Do you think that God wants you to be happy? I’ve heard sermons from both sides- and I find it fascinating that those who think God is against happiness are generally pretty sour faced themselves. Conversely those who preach a gospel of giddy glee are usually livin’ la vida loca!
For me, I’d say yes and no. Yes God wants you to be happy, but not at the expense of being holy. Jesus actually gave us step by step instructions for inner joy- and the reason He took time to do that was because He really does care about the state of your personal being. He also delineates on delighting in life because He definitely wants you to watch out for the Devil‘s guidebook to happiness.
I think you see the difference…happiness is all in the eye of the beholder. Just keep in mind the Eye that beholds you is the only One who can see you through to true contentment.
What or whom are you looking to for happiness?
Does Jesus or the Devil make more sense? Why?
Which of Jesus’ ideas are you willing to give a try?
God is my source of everything, the One who gives me not only Happiness but True Joy, that is everlasting :D God Bless you All
