Important to share: HOW TO GET MORE SEX

...AND LESS TV

Well, it has been 8 months I don't have any TV of any kind in my apartment. We meant to get rif of it a long time ago. However, when you can still affoard it, you see no pointing in eliminating it. But in my case, yeah, it has been EIGHT MONTHS with no commercials, no stupid news, no knowing about sport which I never knew how to play. My mom trust me once on basketball when I was 7, but I can barely pour coffee in my coffee mug. I could never fit a small ball in a basket. I miss though to know about the weather and the war in Syria and Iran.

Let us not lose the merit of being 240 days without TV. I notice that I started missing some stand-up comedy jokes and some memes would make better sense if I had first seen on TV. Apart from that, my life may have improved, I just don't know in which way. I did clean the house more often and I was not going to mention something so private, but hey, this is my blog. I won't soon be teaching kids and I feel free enough to say that the sex drive is "OMG" 10 thousand times better. People who don't own TV must  have more sex (period).

Since the first UFC without TV, I'd thought: "This is not gonna work!" And we endured and felt like fish out of the sea... People will mention HBO series that you are unable to see. But, besides not having TV home, we don't eat sugar or any food processed with sugar as my husband is diabetic; we are vegans, that means we only have plant based food, and my husband is a martial artist, so he trains a lot throughout the day, every single day: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, and Muai Thai. So he loves watching UFC, and it is freaking expensive to pay perview on every fight. Not having TIVO is the same as not having remote control.

I don't think I restarted reading more BOOKS after I gave up on TV. I started paying attention to them. I reorganized them in my house and at work. However, I started reading instructions, manifestos, recipes and things that I would never read from top to bottom. I became more resilient. I am patient with myself so I continued being this patient.

#1)Are you going to keep  not having a TV?
Well, if my relatives do not interfere, no TV for the rest of my life.

#2)Would you recommend to try?
You'd have to live secluded like my husband and I. Because you might not have a TV in your homes, but then you like watching that soccer match so much and your brother-in-law has that huge LED TV or you can't live without that soap opera, but you know loves soap operas too and you self-invite to their homes. If you do things things way, you should consider addiction. Think if you are addicted to the news at lunchtime. What are you going to do? You see? It is addiction. We are talking about 1984 inside out. It is scary.

I am getting cleaned up! :)

Road Trip Plan

#1) Don't have a PLAN.
#2) Double the plan.
#3) When you reach the PLAN; you've already reached the PLAN.
#4) Stick with the PLAN.
#5) If you have tuned up the car and gotten a good GPS, you are 1/10 way from starting the PLAN.

Painful truths**

Let yourself be provoked as little as possible during this time, whether in traffic, sport or other "competition", because even if you do not suffer any defeat it may be that your victory is in some way painful.

On the other hand, you should not dodge a psychological challenge, particularly if it is connected with a situation which is so uncomfortable for you that you would normally rather avoid it. If you want to give someone "a piece of your mind" or bring up uncomfortable topics, you will be supported by this influence.

In any case you should not assume that you yourself will get off scot-free: if you launch into others now you will certainly receive a few painful home truths in return - but it is just this that could prove most valuable for you.

Vacation mode soon ON. Time for resolution list for 2016.

I hope to start an MBA
I wish to take care of my health
I must get a job
I will go to the beach more often
I want to go back to my drumming lessons
I will take care of my skin
I will take care of my smile
I must fight for our president's impeachment
I will fight for a better society

Untitled

To dream that you are on the beach and looking out toward the ocean indicates unknown and major changes that are occurring in your life. Consider the state of the ocean, whether it is calm, pleasant, forbidding, etc. To dream that you are looking toward the beach suggests that you are returning to what is familiar to you. Alternatively, you may be adapting or accepting to the changes and circumstances in your life.

Enlightened Self-interest

This time represents the culmination of your efforts to expand the domain of your activities. There is more and more that you want to do, and you resent anything that narrows your freedom and limits your scope of action.

The challenge of this influence is to be conscious Enlightened self-interest enough of yourself and of what you are doing so that you can plan intelligently and work effectively with enlightened self-interest as opposed to pure selfishness. As long as you stay within your own limitations - that is, your inherent limitations as a human being and the limitations of your situation or circumstances - you should be extremely successful.

The sense of timing of your actions may leave others amazed and sure that you are lucky. But really you have succeeded because you have a complete understanding of the situation.

Wie geht's dir? Danke, sehr schlecht

I am tense for being the end of the school year. The tests never end.
I pretend I am relaxed.
I fight against depression.
I walk instead of driving.
Driving is funny to me. Really. Quite amusing.
I am the opposite of what I was or what I believed 20 years ago.
I am tired of being bipolar.
There is enough "bi" in my life.
By the way, I've gotta back to drumming.
I've decided on taking up an MBA.
That is another step in my life.
I am tense for being the end of our school. I need vacation. I need holidays. I need my medication.

Shitty Life

Good morning, my blog. It has been a while I don't take time to write in here. It has been cold and wet for months down in the South of Brazil. It is December and this is Brazil. El niño La niña, whatever they call, it is affecting my mood profoundly. It is 10 degrees celsius. Is this normal in a tropical country? I can't stop drinking coffee. I cannot work properly. I cannot function. Meanwhile, another terrorist attack in France. What to say? There is terrorism in my country too. I miss having spare time to blog. Now I have so much to write about. Our lives are changing completely. As my country is going through its hardest time in the history of Brazilian Republic, I see socialists being in the power, taking over Brazil, and doing whatever they please in order to stay in the power. I see poverty increasing. There are more homeless and at the same time, refugees. This is crazy. We are a poor and dangerous country that lives a non-official guerrilla, or war, the battle agains drugs in major cities. Brazilians are victims of pick-pockets, burglers, and street robbers because all they want is small money to buy Crack and Cocaine. This is hell of a topic for a teacher's blog post. I am entitled by my constitution the right to express whatever I want and whatever I see happening and it should or must be reported and spread to many countries. Since losing the World Cup at home, Brazilians started being more critical and political on social media network. Dehmonstrations and protests have become stronger and super crowded. People went camping in front of the congress in our capital for many days so that our president Dilma Rousseff would get impeached. Not. Nothing happened. Breaking News: My life is about to change completely in a week. I am super and not afraid at all. I can't wait to have the changes done so that I can type here how things are going to work. As I am not sure how things are going to work, I must not let out details. Although, my experience and feelings tell me that hubby and I are taking the best choices. What I am allowed to say for sure is that Brazil is not being neglected. As nation, our country is disappointing us in a great deal. Therefore, we must stay and fight for a better place. Leftists have been in the power since 2002. Coincidently, hubby and I came back from USA to live in Brazil "for good" in the same year, 2002. In Brazil, we have become entrepreneurs and leftist governments are not entrepreneurship-friendly huahauhauahua. Thus, we are broke. We are hopeless. However, we are not going to give up. We have each other. We have one another. Demonstrations have popped up since 2013. We can't accept corrupted political leaders anymore. The Brazilian currency has fallen more than 30 per cent in a year. Interest rates are at 15 per cent, 9 percentage points of which are gobbled up by inflation. Unemployment is climbing. The economy is shrinking. And if that were not enough, Brazil is also suffering its biggest-ever corruption scandal. Petrobras, the state-owned energy company, admitted to losses of R$6bn ($1.6bn); the federal police puts the figure far higher. The affair has weakened an already indecisive president. Since her re-election last year, Dilma Rousseff has lost control of her government coalition and of much of her own Workers’ party. Her approval rating has sunk to 7 per cent — lower even than the 9 per cent rating of former president Fernando Collor de Mello just before he left office under duress in 1992. Ms Rousseff may yet face a similar fate; in a move that could presage impeachment, the federal budget watchdog , the TCU, rejected the government’s 2014 accounts. Brazilians are moving away. But we won't. Nevertheless, I am still interested in a job down in San Diego area. huhuahauahuahauahua
