BUM 007: On Perserverance

Boost-Up Monday episode 007

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

My Annual Valentine’s Day Horror Film Marathon 2014

It’s that time of the year again when the best reaction to the whole “Valentine’s Day” hoopla I can think of is a huge SCREAM!!!

As tradition (my tradition) goes — whether I have a special someone or not — I always celebrate lover’s day by doing a little horror film marathon of 3-5 hand-picked titles that will (or not) chill me to the bones.

I am very much aware that it’s a weird tradition, but when I started it 10 years ago, I just have to do it every year or I will feel totally incomplete. Besides, for someone who’s currently not seeing anyone, it’s a rather awesome way to renege on the whole hearts-and-flowers celebration dictated by illogical consumer ads and what-nots.  Continue reading My Annual Valentine’s Day Horror Film Marathon 2014

Easy Fridays 006: Dee-Lite’s Groove Is In The Heart

Groove Is in the Heart

Ooh . . . la-la . . . la-la . . .

It’s Valentine’s Day today and somehow, this song has been playing inside my head long before I started making this post.

Yes, despite me being a rocker at heart, there’s a piece of me that liked groovin’ with a bit of pop. Aannnndddd . . . Dee-Lite‘s been on my playlist for years — my go-to jam when I just want to let loose.

So, shake that tush and do your funky moves (at least in the privacy of your home as I do) with Dee-Lite’s Groove Is In The Heart.

‘Til next Friday, y’all!

Natural Attractions

As routine goes, I always tune in to one of my favorite radio shows in the morning (every workweek) while I enjoy a mug of coffee or tea before starting work.

So, in a way, this post is related to the topics under discussion for a couple of days about a week or so ago.

The topics were — shall I say — things that have been debated and argued over since time immemorial. It’s engaging; there’s no doubt about that. But for some reason, I cannot help myself from rolling my eyes and mutter, “Here we go again.” This comment is in no way directed at the DJs — they are fantastic. It’s directed to most of the stoopid comments that are quite annoying.

What is it about?

So apropos, isn’t it? Considering that Valentine’s Day is just a stone’s throw away. 

But anyway, the topics might be too vague at some point and they could do with some explaining for the dim-witted folks — be more specific — because there are just too many factors to consider when the topic of beauty and attraction comes to mind. Just talking about attractiveness is so general, not to mention the different levels of attraction that one might get lost in answering the basic question: what’s your type?  Continue reading Natural Attractions
