Old Brain.

Sometimes I feel like an old man who had worked hard his entire life only to realise that life can't be fulfilled by job satisfaction or passion alone. Its like experiencing an epiphany, realising that all those years I've slogged off resulted in the negligence of something way more important; relationships. The problem is, I'm only 23. Many more years to slog off before I'm supposed to feel this way.

2 Years Later

I realised that it has been 2 years since i last blogged.
Went to read back on all my older posts and was surprised how childish I sound (wrote).
What surprised me more was how much people liked my post.
I guess like me, they too were young and childish, haha.

I can't deny that I was amazed by some of the posts though.
The wisdom, compassion, humour and wit displayed captivated me.
I daresay I'm quite impressed with the old me, haha.

Got so busy with life the last 2 years that I forgot the joy of writing.
I remember the reason why I used to write my blog posts with such enthusiasm wasn't because I wanted more readers, but because I knew one day I'll come back to my blog again and re-read my posts.
And when I do, I want to be entertained, haha.
So I guess I'll blog again whenever I'm free, even though blogs are no longer as popular as they were.

Or perhaps I should get a tumblr.

Weird Love.

My fav quote of the year:

“We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”

Weirdly Normal..

Here are some nice weird quotes that i found...

“Life isn't weird: it's just the people in it.”
- Anonymous

“We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.”
- Anonymous

“When a woman is very, very bad, she is awful, but when a man is correspondingly good, he is weird.”
- Minna Antrim

“My roommate says, I'm going to take a shower and shave, does anyone need to use the bathroom? It's like some weird quiz where he reveals the answer first.”
- Mitch Hedberg

“People that are really very weird can get into sensitive positions and have a tremendous impact on history.”
- Dan Quayle

“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”
- Hunter S.Thompson

We all have an individual brand of weirdness.
What one person sees as weird, might seem normal to another.
What seems normal, might seem weird to another.
Society tells us that we should be normal.
Education teaches us to be normal.
But what they are seeking is actually 'standardization'.

The truth is, Normalization isn't standardization!
Because all of us are not the same.
Because all of us are normal in our own way.

So enjoy being yourself today.
Enjoy being weird.

This post has so much value in view of time and eternity, because to be able to enjoy life, it is first necessary to be able celebrate your individual unique weirdness.

Is Beauty really in the eye of the beholder?

This is a continuation from my previous post...
I think I made men sound rather shallow in my previous post, haha..

I guess some of you were even shocked, that such a nice guy like Rickson who judges not by other's appearance and only looks at the character & heart would say such a thing!!
Okay okay, i'm exaggerating, i'm not that perfect a person, haha..

Anyway, i want to continue from there.
I mentioned that men prefer pretty women...

Many agree that men are stimulated by visuals while women by words.
Men get turn on easily by pretty women, while women get turn on easily by words.
And thats the reason why so many men get cheated by pretty women, while so many women get cheated by men who know how to sweeten words.
The worst thing about it, is that they don't just get cheated, but repeatedly.

And now, let me share with you a revelation i had recently.
I've heard about so many stories of how couples got together.
Men are turn on by a woman's looks, but surprisingly so many guys told me that at the start of their friendship with the girl, they were not attracted to the girl's looks at all!

So how does it makes sense?
Men are turn on by looks, but many men fell in love with a girl that did not really had the look to turn them on in the beginning?
An oxymoron?
Not really...

Here comes the good stuff...
A man's brain, is connected to the visual input more than anything else!!
Thats why men prefer pretty women.
Because the visuals excites the brain.
But it can work the other way round too, and I've experience that myself.

What I mean is that other than having the visuals affecting the brain, a man's brain can affect the visuals too!!
And that is the reason why when in love, a man thinks he has the prettiest spouse in the entire history, present & even future of the world!!

Because afer he really knows her, after he sees her character, how nice and caring she is, the man's brain starts affecting the visual input, his brain starts telling his eyes that this girl is so awesome.
And he starts seeing her prettier than she might be in her appearance.
That is why in most of the romantic scenes of a love movie, the guy can't help himself but keep telling the girl how beautiful she is.

And that is also why so many times when i see certain girls, my first impression on them is only average, but when i really get to know their character, they'll suddenly seem so pretty!

And that is also also also also why, some people might appear so attractive at first sight but afterward seem only average..
The chinese calls it bu4 nai4 kan4..
(Singlish = Starting see see very chio, but afterwards see long long already sianed)

It's a visual trick that a man's mind plays on him.
It has its advantages and disadvantages, but a word of advice for the women out there, make best use of this advantage..

So all I've talked about above, I believe can be termed as "Inner Beauty".

Oh, and for guys... When a girl falls in love with you, most of the time she'll think that you're the best guy on earth!! Not perfect, but better than all the other imperfect guys out there, haha..
(If i'm wrong, correct me, coz there's a limit I know about girls)

So that's all!! This post has value in terms of eternity & of time, unless you're those blessed with the gift of Celibacy. (which means you wanna stay single all your life)

Differences in Preference

I read in a book about the differences between what a gender looks for in a spouse.

Of course, both look at character too, and without a shadow of doubt I believe character is of most importance in a marriage, or any aspect in life...

But here are the differences in preference..

Women prefer men who are confident but gentle and considerate. Funny but appropriate and tasteful. Engaging but not stuck on themselves. Sensitive yet strong and protective.

Men prefer pretty women.
