They say that planning is an integral and common process that everybody does. It can be as simple as an ordinary mother planning for tonight's dinner to a military general planning strategies on how to conquer the enemy. Consequently, related process to planning are also executed by these ordinary and extraordinary people such as decision-making and prioritizing.
Prioritizing is one of the basic things that people tend to forget. Bot everybody has the knack for proper prioritizing because they can get disillusioned by materialism. Prioritizing simply means that due to your limited resources, you need to plan for actions and activities that has to come first. Its most simple form is deciding upon things that you need and the things that you want. Plotting the thing that you need in terms of their availability, urgency and usefulness, you'll sea a clear view of what your priorities should be. It is an economic and as much as a social practice.
I amaze myself sometimes because I think I took a 180-turn in terms of my emotional disposition. If you would see me then and now, you'll never think I'm the same person. While I used to have a cold image before, I'm practically very clingy to my friends now. I guess, I figured that it is OK for me to show some affection for my friends and that it is OK for me to seek them and need their presence every now and then.
Some people see being clingy as annoying and as a sign of weakness but I simply believe that it can be cute, too. Of course everything becomes annoying when done too much. I guess you should need to know the borderline between a clingy friend and an obsessed one. I think a little affection can be healthy in any relationship. It gives the impression that you need the other person and unless too much, that's gonna make you closer to each other and might be one of the factors to keep the relationship on a positive note.

It may be in men's nature to rather utter a few words than deliver long dialogues of love and the like. Okay, given that, does it mean that guys are excused when it comes to loud expression of their love or affection verbally?
Or okay, at least we understand that when it comes to saying sweet words, the girls are more showy - say on facebook, on SMS, etc. But again, will this justify men not giving much appreciation to posted sweet nothings of their girlfriends?
Uh-oh, this is when a misunderstanding may just arise.
If men are more of the reserved type - someone who just can't shout it all out aloud in the "world", then more probably, he would give an apathetic answer to your "ILOVEYOU" post in FB. It's up to you how to look into an "ILOVEYOU too" response. Now who gets very affected with this? Of course, the expressive girl who braodcasted her feelings confidently but was not able to receive the desired answer. Thus this will create in her somme sour words..
Like most people would advise you, it's better to zip your mouth whenever angry than accidentally express it in words that will hurt the one you love. This applies more apparently among the girls as they are the ones expressive.
Just like most people in this world, I love to stimulate myself. But unlike those emo people who like to cut and bleed themselves as stimulation, I guess I have other things in mind (and it's not as sexually dirty as you are thinking right now). Nothing makes me more agitated or excited as scary stuff. I love ghost stories and zombie apocalyptic types of movies.
But what freaks me out the most is exorcism movies--not only are they scary as hell in terms of visuals, but they are also psychologically disturbing. What's more scarier than a devil who can possess you or other people against your will, right? And you don't even know how to fight it, too! Unlike zombie which die eventually when the brain gets bashed or blown up, the devil is powerful, albeit limitless. No walls, no gates can hold him. Worldly weapons don't work against him. Only God can conquer him.
Perception plays a big role in humanity. How people perceived us matters most because its either they get us correctly or might be at the wrong way. And self confidence has a lot to do with this perception. Of course when are confident enough for a certain thing usually there's a positive feedback but if you are the shy and very conscious type of person then possibly the result will not be in a positive way. So if you're this type of person how will you be able to be perceived in a way you like it to be by the people around you? Easy, dress up yourself with confidence.
In building up your confidence, the first tip you have to consider is your looks. This has nothing to do with your physical attributes but with the way you dressed yourself. So dress sharp! Yes, your clothes has something to do with it because if you feel not good with what you wear, it changes the way you carry yourself and the way you interact with other people. This simply means that being properly dressed boost up confidence.
Being a leader requires a lot of different skills and talents. Whatever kind of leader you might be, might you be a political leader or a religious leader or any other kind of leader, this set of skills never change. What are some of the most important skills and talents a leader must have?

GRACE UNDER PRESSURE. A leader must be able to control every situation to his accord. Even when things go wrong or situations become sticky, he must be able to think clearly and solve the problem. He is not easily rattled by problems.
Sometimes life teaches us lessons we never forget. And sometimes, we learn these lessons the hard way. I guess this is the reason why we remember them. In my more than twenty years in this world, I've learned most of the things I know the hard way. Some of the things that really stuck to me are the following:
SOMETIMES YOU NEVER GET WHAT YOU WANT NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY. Though some people say that if you work hard enough you'll get what you want, this isn't always true. Sometimes you do get something out of your hard work but it may not be the thing that you wanted. Always remember that it isn't forbidden to try again.
DISAPPOINTMENT IS JUST A THINKING. Don't let negative thoughts rule your life. If you get obsessed with how life is disappointing, you'll never be able to be successful. Sure, life is a bitch but remember that it can always be tamed. Push the negative thoughts away and move on.
Life is hard and you only live once. Move past your disappointments and start living life.

Crutch words are those words that a speaker use in order to give time for himself to think of the next thing so say. For every language, there probably exists one or more crutch words. Of course, the most popular among English speaker is "uhm." It is no bad to use crutch words but when used excessively, it'll be annoying to the person you are talking to.
Other than uhm, the following words should also be avoided:
Basically - This word denotes a summary in the simplest form. However, it is also now being used to emphasize a point.
Literally - This word should be used to denote a literal or actual situation or condition. However, it is now being used to emphasize a figurative comment.
Like - Probably, like is the crutch word I hate the most because it is being used randomly. Like should denote a comparison of shared likeness or similarity. However, it is now being used in the same category as uhm.
When a country's currency becomes stronger, it just means that its buying power in the market has gone up. For the past months, the Philippines Peso has been thriving. From nearly Php 50 per dollar a few years ago, it has gone down to Php 40. For those whose businesses depended on the USD, this looks more like a problem than a solution.
For ordinary people, this isn't something they get concerned about. Any slight and gradual change in this exchange rate is not noticeable. It is because people don't usually transact in USD. However, for someone like me who gets a fixed price as payment, this surge in the peso has brown down the value of a dollar. Therefore, I'm actually loosing good money every time the Peso goes up.
This kinds of makes me want to go back to the days when dollar was high. But oh well, I'm happy for the country as a surging peso value is a good phenomenon.
