Most Common Problems Guys Have In Relationships

Most people look at single men and don’t think that they have the slightest clue about Relationships.  Truth is, you don’t have to be in a relationship(s) to know a thing or to about them.  There is this little thing I like to call Observation.

A single guy who has never had a single date, might know more about relationships than a guy who’s been on hundreds of dates.  See the big picture here?  The single guy can learn from every one of the dating guy’s mistakes, that is if he follows the Golden Rules of Learning.

Listen, Absorb, and Apply.  Those are the three Golden Rules of Anything really.

Let’s take dating for example; the single biggest problem I’ve seen with dating, is that Guys don’t (Listen.)  Yep, that one little issue is the single biggest cause of break ups in America’s Young Adults today.  Men just don’t listen.

They’ll completely ignore half of what’s said, one fourth of what’s said they only catch half of it, and the other fourth, men tend to be on the So So page.

What’s the So So page?  Men listen up, because you’ll need this piece of advice.  The So So page is when Men are listening, but don’t say anything or do anything.

For example: when a Woman offers a suggestions and the man just ignores it, merely because a Woman offered it.  That’s the So So page.  Ladies, this issue can easily be fixed……

Get A Bigger Stick!

Absorbing what you learn is a big part of life.  We can’t live with out learning, otherwise, we’d be a broken sponge.  That’s right, learning is a lot like a Sponge, first you have to absorb it, in order to use it.

But, don’t absorb too much, otherwise all that information will overflow and be lost, or simply put, useless.  It’s just like anything else you do, from time to time you need a break.

Applying what you learn is by far the most crucial part of any relationship.  If you do something wrong and you continue to do it, time and time again, of course she’s going to get pissed of or even leave your lazy butt.  Because either A) you’re not learning anything or B) you’re not applying what you learn.

See, absorption and Application work hand in hand.  If you’re out their and your Truck breaks down?  What do you do?  You learn what you need in order to fix the problem and go about fixing it.

Guys listen to this, because I’m only going to say it once.  Women, are a lot like Trucks, they need regular maintenance and lots of TLC.  Otherwise, you may as well hang up the hat and boot yourself out the door.

Relationships don’t have to be hard, nowadays, young adults tend to over complicate things.  Go simple, or go home.

Things You Wish You Learned In School

There are many things that we wish we had learned in school.  No matter who you are, or where you’re from, there is always something.  Our parents have conditioned us to do better and now look at us.

Young adults nowadays think that Flipping Burgers is below them.  It’s a great first starter job.  It’ll teach you lots of things, like dedication, time management, and numerous other things.  On top of that it’ll add spending money in your pocket.

If you’re smart though, you’d realize that you’re not going to get a six figure job right out of High School.  Not unless you create your own job.  Here are some things that you wish you had learned in school.

Things You Wish You Had Learned In School

Perhaps you can think of other things you wish you had learned in school?

What do you do with your computers spare time?

Many people do what they need to do on their computers and just go about their day.  What if you could put that computer to use actually providing valuable data to the Scientific community?

There are actually several screen savers that will allow you to take part in Scientific data.  There are also programs that you can download and install such as Community World Grid.

This program will allow you to take part in a minute way by allowing your computer to process information for Scientific Research.  These research programs include data on Cancer, Aids, and numerous other diseases as well as some technology advancements.

One Geek actually built his computer with that in mind.  He thought about what he could do for the world.  Sense his computer just sits there when he’s not doing anything, why not put it to use?

This Geek also took and built his computer out of Lego parts.  This is intriguing for a lot of Geeks out there who love Lego.  In fact, one could go as far to say it’s intriguing to a lot more than just the Geek community.

Some Mistakes of Vegans and Vegetarians

One might actually think that it’s easy to just get out there and change your lifestyle, but it’s not.  It can actually be quite hard for some people.

If you want to diet, exercise, and lose weight, there are some things you need to avoid as pointed out in the video below.

Those things are as follows:

Eating too much Fat.
Eating too much Sugar & Stimulants.
Not fixing enough of your own meals.
Not getting enough exercise.
Not being in a community.

For some, working out alone, might be alright.  For many, it’s the exact opposite.  Try to either create your own community, or join an existing one.  That will boost your confidence and willingness to get out there.

 

Many Reasons To Like Minecraft

There are many reasons to like Minecraft.  Crafting is just part of the Minecraft world.  From the building to the adventures, dungeons and strongholds, nothing comes close to Minecraft.  Ok, when where talking about this type of game.

One of the greatest reasons I like Minecraft is all the Parodies.  Some of them better than others, but many of them just as good.  Some of them not so good.  You just have to weed them out.

I’ve weeded out a few of them for you.  If you love music, you’ll love these great Minecraft Parodies.  Even if you don’t know much about Minecraft.

Learning A Language

There comes a time in someone’s life, when they decide to learn a language.  Languages can be a lot of fun to learn, but challenging at the same time.  What’s the best way to go about it?

Many companies offer courses on speaking a foreign language.  But is this really the best way to learn?  Sure, they might offer Voice, Visual, and Hands On learning, but is Software really the best way to learn a language?

What about College course material?  Many Colleges offer and even require one to learn a foreign language, or two, or three, etc.  Depending on your degree.  But is College really the best way to learn?

Perhaps the best way to learn a foreign language, is to immerse yourself into the culture.  What Culture?  Well, the culture who’s language you want to learn.  If you want to learn Japanese, you’ll need to immerse yourself in Japanese Culture.  The only way to do that?  Go to Japan.

Why is Total Immersion important?  The thing is, software and audio courses can only get you so far.  In other words, you might be learning how to pronounce a word, but what if you’re not accurate?  People might look at you funny when you’re trying to speak to them.

Some languages, like Chinese, are tone regulated.  In other words, the tone that you speak in, may actually mean an entirely different word/phrase.  Most of the time though, it’s usually different ways of saying something.  Like we have different levels of love, they might have different tones for love.

So, rather than make a fool of yourself, you might want to consider taking an immersion course, or even just traveling on your own.  It’s never too late to travel and you may as well do it while you’re still young.

For those of us who can’t quite afford to travel, at least yet, there is always the courses to use.  I for one find myself having trouble learning certain words, so I have no clue if I’m right with the pronunciation or not.  What about you?  What’s your biggest challenge when learning a foreign language?

It’s All About Initiative

Life in general is all about Initiative.  Do you have the drive necessary to make it happen?  Are you living life the way you want to?

I’ve started writing on my novel again.  That takes initiative.  If you have a story you want to write, you need to plan it out and get started writing.  Don’t wait too long, you’ll never get it done.  Trust me, I know.

I’ve had the idea to write this novel for several years now.  I could have been a published Author by now if I had that Initiative.  Hopefully, it won’t be that far off, now that I’ve started the initial stage.

There’s another area in my life that needs work though.  Exercise.  I just lack the drive that I need to make it all happen.

I often find my self laughing (on the inside) at people who drive around the parking lot looking for a parking space.  I can park out of the way at the end of the isle and walk into the store, before most people can park their car.  Seriously?  Yet, at the same time, I lack the drive to get motivated for exercise?

So, here’s what I’m going to try.  I’m going to make a poster board.  It’s going to be filled with things I want, people I want to be like, women I’d like to date, etc.  Why?  This is to hopefully give me the motivation I need to actually be someone.  To get up and go.

I’m also going to be starting a community of my own.  I’m going to be looking for certain individuals (who are already well on their way) to help jump start the community.  If you’d like to be a part of this community, let me know.  It will probably be forum based.

Keep plucking away at life and it will reward you.

Encyclopedia Britannica – Family Encyclopedia – Budget Games & Software

I promised a review of Encyclopedia Britannica, the Family edition.

It cost me a mere $10, but I have to say, that I’m highly disappointed.  First off, the disc wouldn’t even work in the DVD Burner I have.  I should have at least read the disc, which would have been able to install it.

All in all, I think it would have been a pleasant experience, if I was able to install it.  It says, “WIN/MAC CD Rom Software.  Included on the disc are 25,000+ articles, 2,700 images/maps/videos, and a Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary & Thesaurus.

And yes, it works with Windows 7 witch is what I’m using.  I just checked the back of the box to make sure.  Which I’m almost certain I did so at the purchase of the software.

Despite the fact this journey was slightly disappointing, I’ll continue to purchase and review budget games & software.  Provided that they actually work.  Up next?  Sim City 4 and I know it works, because I bought it back when it was still $20, though you can now get it for $10.  Yet, the $20 includes an expansion pack.

Keep an eye out for the next review.  Is there a software or game you’d like me to review?  Make a suggestion below, as long as it’s under $20.

If you’re a software or game designer and would like me to review a game/software, please leave a comment or send me an email to my public email on my profile.

Empire Avenue New Dividends Changes

Recently, Empire Avenue made a few changes to how the Algorithms work.  In other words, many people who were gaming the system, should see a bit of change in their dividends.  If you’re posting 200-400 post a day to Facebook and wonder why your dividends have changed, this is why.

The short answer.  Rather than make a long lengthy blog post like the EAv team did, I figured I’d shorten it a bit.  With no further ado, here are the changes.

Empire Avenue: Login and do some transactions (even if you just buy or sell one or two users) regularly. Send shareholder mail and be active in your communities, and get others to respond to your posts.

Facebook, Facebook Pages: Post statuses. The more comments and likes you get on those statuses, the better.

Twitter: Post tweets. The more people retweet you, the bettter.

Flickr: Post photos. You don’t need to post 200 photos every day, just get people to interact with the ones you do post through their comments and favorites.

YouTube: Post Videos. Again, no need to post 20 videos a day, just get people to interact with the ones you do post through their comments and favorites.

Foursquare: Check in to locations. Busy, verified locations (like those with specials) are worth much more than frivolous ones like “my basement”. Write tips, and get others to complete them!

Instagram: Post photos. The more comments and likes you get on those statuses, the better.
WordPress: Post blog posts, and get others to comment on them.

LinkedIn and Blogs: Due to limited available information about these connections, we pay a lower, fixed amount for Blogs and LinkedIn. They only contribute to your earnings if this amount is among your top five earnings.

All Networks: Your earnings and dividends will increase as you increase your Network Score.

Many of you have noticed that how EAv worked before is that the content changes would be effective every couple of days.  Notice, the big drop you had after being away for the weekend.  They’ve changed that.  Now, it’s going to make changes based on Several Weeks of activity.  Which is a great game changer.  This will factor in your lack of weekend activity and average it all out.

What are your thoughts?  Will this make EAv a better system?  You know longer have to make 200-400 post a day to have great dividends.  Just getting people to interact with you is a much better approach and a great key to survival on EAv.  You may have noticed top players such as e(Pirillo) skyrocket their dividends.  This is because they have a lot of community interaction.  Especially on Youtube and Facebook.  This is key.

You Know You Spend To Much Time Online When

you change your desktop background almost daily.

you rarely turn off your computer.

you get hemorrhoids because you’ve been sitting at your computer so long.

a weekend of time spent offline feels like a nice break

you *do* take breaks from the computer, you psychologically schedule yourself to come back when the “4-hours” are up and you can replenish your Slot Game [or insert your favorite game here] tokens!

every time you leave your desk you take both your iPad and iPhone with you, just in case…and your car lighter charger

your dust bunnies have become dust elephants!

you don’t understand the meaning of “too much time online”

you’re too busy online to answer this question and simply go “huh??”

you get cankles from sitting for too many hours. (don’t worry, it’s temporary)

you think it’s Tuesday but it’s really Monday?

you search for the like button on your car radio

you search for reviews for things when you’re at the store.

you turn to your computer to look something up and realized you already are sitting at your computer.

the first thing you do in the morning is turn the laptop on.

you don’t ever have to turn on your computer
