PLANNING MY FUTURE

The initial plan for me is to retire by the age of 45. It is just a decade from now and by the looks of it will never be achievable. I still have a lot of goals to achieve and I am still way behind in terms of monetary savings. My current savings as of this moment wouldn’t last me a year. So yeah, I can’t retire and not work when I am 45.

It saddened me to realize this. I have expected to be just relaxing and spending my hard earned money while experiencing mid-life crisis. I have expected that I will be travelling most of the time or just spending my free time on casino online gratis by the time that I am 45. But I am keeping my perspective positive and hope that I could only adjust a few more years for my planned early retirement. Say, I could retire when I am 50? A new set of goal is good to get me going and be motivated.

How about you? Do you have any plans for your future? If you still don’t have, you should start having one. Planning your future is good. It motivates you to work hard.

EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

I used to have a problem finding the perfect skin products before. I have a dry skin and I use to have a hard time finding a moisturizer that would fit on my very sensitive skin type. I almost tried different kind of brands in the market and still no good results. My skin still gets dry easily and there comes a point that I am so frustrated I almost go to the dermatologist just to have a prescribed skin products for my skin. Good thing a friend suggested that I should try using extra virgin olive oil.

I started using extra olive oil just a couple of months ago and I am very happy with the results. I just apply it on my skin after I take a bath and let my skin absorb it for a couple of minutes. It’s just that simple. I noticed that my skin never gets dry anymore unless it’s too windy. In that case I just bring along an extra bottle of extra virgin olive oil. 

Maybe you also want to try it out; there is a lot of best extra virgin olive oil available on the market. If you are also having troubles on your skin you should try this one and maybe it has the same positive effect on you too. It is not expensive and I believe it is very healthy to use because it is organic. I just can’t express how much I appreciate the extra virgin olive oil of what it had done to my skin.

TAKING CARE OF OUR HEART

We commemorate the eight year death anniversary of my father last March 16. He died of a heart disease. From then on I’d been conscious about the health of heart of my family and me. It has been one of my priorities to take good care of our heart. This requires proper diet, eating the right food that can improve heart health and avoiding foods that will risk our hearts health. This includes going on a program diet. At first this has been difficult because as a family we love to eat but then we really have to do this also as some sort kind of tribute to my father.

We also exercise regularly. Some of us go to a gym or enroll to yoga or any fitness class. We are very conscious on making ourselves fit, eating healthy and avoiding stressful factors that is also one of the risk factor to our hearts. The death of our father due to a heart disease woke us up to take care of our health. Death can be traumatic but I know it is inevitable but it doesn’t have to be just like the death of my father that is so early and sudden. So this taking good care of our health specifically our hearts would be our bond as a family.

DIG DEEPER INTO THE INTERNET

The thing that interests me nowadays is the internet. I was still amaze on how the technology affects us today. I am somehow happy that I get to experience it just like my grandmother was happy to have experienced using a cellphone. At least I get to be a part of an era or age. But as much as I am in awe with this cool technology I have this urge to get into deep about it. I am not trying to be an expert; I just want to fully understand about it. It’s mechanics, the advantages and disadvantages, basically the different effects of it on human.

There are some courses about this today I believe. I am not sure which university offers this course but I will look it up because I am interested on enrolling. This has become now one of my goals. Be educated about this whole internet thing and be an ambassador of some sort. I intend to also educate the others about this and maybe together we could make this digital age a better age that we live in.

One of the things that I want to go dig deep into is the porn industry on the cyberspace. I stumble upon this site http://twitter.com/porn which is obviously a PornTwitter and I am curious how this thing benefits each and every one who subscribe to this. Aside from the fact that sex sells I wanted to know how this affect the lives of people behind this and what makes the end user or the subscriber of this really feels about this.

Hopefully I get to pursue this goal that is slowly turning into dream. I don’t want to obsess about it because I will get impatient and rush these things. I don’t know if this is a noble thing but if not I know that I could be helping the others who, like me, has this hunger of understanding the cyberspace.

Top Headache Trigger

Results from the 2012 United States Cluster Headache Survey revealed that alcohol remains the main trigger for cluster headaches. More than half of all survey participants stated that alcohol was their main headache trigger. In some European countries the rates of alcohol induced headache are much greater (Sweden 79%, UK 63%) or approximately the same (Germany 54%).

The main source of alcohol for US respondents was beer (57%) followed by red wine and hard liquor (about 50%). Most survey respondents reported that they stopped drinking at the onset of a cluster headache. Interestingly, the data also supported a well-known fact that beer is the number one consumed alcoholic beverage in the United States. Hence, the question is still out as to whether these numbers would look different in other countries - where other alcoholic beverages reign...
