Ah yes.

Another dawn, another day.

As I’m gazing out the window, noticing the raindrops that are falling, I am being reminded that in spite of living where I don’t want to live and the way I want to live, I am after all very lucky.

Yeah, it’s going to be one of those emails where I natter on about gratitude and all of that stuff.

But this is important.

Why?

Simply because there is too much negativity in our world today. Especially amongst younger kids who grew up watching YouTube and Disney and don’t know that there was a…


There is no way to sugarcoat this.

Life is full of setbacks, disappointments and letdowns. It’s a natural part of growth. You’re trying out something and it doesn’t work. You go back to the drawing board. Trying out something new. Then that doesn’t work either. But you refuse to give up. You relentlessly pursue your goal. Even if it’s going to take you several years before you reach it.

Pause.

Just think about it.

Yeah, you’re sacrificing a lot. There are plenty of other things you prefer doing. Such as going out drinking and having a great time at the…


…in short, there isn’t much to say.

Other than that, prioritizing loyalty should almost be your number one concern. Because, life is a series of events where you need other people to rely on. This is as true as having each other’s backs when you’re kids and an adult is accusing you of stealing candy.

Or knowing when to advice your trusted business partner that there is nothing to gain from this deal.

It all comes from a position of love and helpfulness.

Just think about it.

What’s the point of having lots of money, buying all the nice things…


As I’m writing this, it’s the dawn of a new day.

Or actually, dawn has already passed. It’s early in the forenoon. However, it’s an important day. Not to me, this day is like any other day. But to a lot of politicians and staff members involved in political affairs, this day marks a change in their career.

Some for the better.

Some for the worse.

What I’m getting at, is that there is the parliamentary elections today. We’re supposed to elect a new Government. Or re-elect the one that’s in office. …


Let’s talk about dating and girls.

No, I won’t go into details for obvious reasons. But let’s just say I was once dating this girl a little on and off. I really wasn’t too vested into that relationship. I think she was more than I. Either way, I really didn’t enjoy spending time with her. I don’t know why. I just found her boring. Sex was great and all of that. She even cooked food for me. But there was just something more that was lacking.

I guess I wasn’t properly in love with her.

Which means my emotions weren’t…


I once read an article about some chick who admitted to being a bully in school.

Whilst the bullying part certainly isn’t funny and anything to make fun about, the big irony of this chick admitting to being a bully and destroying someone else’s life is. And that is because this chick, let’s call her Susie, is in the news all the time, waving her finger at something, claiming her moral high ground.

During the lockdowns, a lot of people defied the national advice against travelling internationally. Instead of keeping her mouth shut, Susie called these people ‘irresponsible’ and said…


It really ain’t that hard.

Don’t buy anything you can’t afford for the time being. Be smart. Put aside money that you may need in the future in case something happens.

But here’s where a lot of people get things wrong in my opinion.

Instead of focusing on how they could make more money, they find out ways to cut their costs. Which is a horrible way of living. Are you really going to tell me you’re going to look for everything that’s discounted and find reasons to not buy anything that’s on sale or something?

Are you going to…


One of the perks if you will, with Sundays is that I get to not train.

And it feels so good. Despite me liking to go to the gym, break a sweat and really burn some calories and feel like I made an effort, I don’t mind having an off day or two in a row. There’s just something about not having to train and to sort of ‘build yourself up’ by having a quiet off day.

However, today will be different.

Because I have to attend some stupid and meaningless military exercise, I cannot train for most of next…


When autumn hits, I’m instantly in a better mood.

I don’t know why. I guess I just relate a little bit more to the dark season, the fog, the rain and leaves falling from the trees. Almost like in the movie ‘Sleepy Hollow’ where virtually all the scenery is in a dark, misty and sort of off-putting atmosphere.

Still, I like it.

It makes me happy.

Maybe because I know Christmas is approaching and that I’d (when I was a kid) get gifts. …


On the topic of eating pasta,

I have a lot to say. Well actually, not that much. But enough to the point where I’d actively recommend against eating that kind of food. Even though it tastes good. I know, I know. But still, even though it tastes good, it messes up your stomach.

And most people who eat a lot of pasta are overweight.

Yes, I know it’s not all that black and white. If you eat pasta that doesn’t necessarily guarantee you’ll become fat yourself.

But certainly it will negatively affect your health.

Especially if you eat a lot…
