Logbook » Water Under the Bridge

As I grow older the things I like are more fuzzy. I am no longer a kid in a candy shop. My dentist says I should come more often as she stares at me through her thick glasses prescibed for her near-sited-ness. She needs to work less often. The things that annoy me are more prevalent. I am not waiting for lunchtime or for friday cause inside this fet is my home. The world is amazing. I just have to figure out what part of it I should be enjoying right at this moment. Its hard to tell. Hearts a mess.

It is interesting to see how facebook reacts when someone dies. The network effect spreads like wild fire until our mothers start asking if they know the friend of a friend who is being RIP-ed. There is a certain finality to death. Other things in life you can recover from, sway back and forth or hope for a better future. We all cope in different ways. No one know what will be the death of us but at least you can love the life you live - even if its not perfect. Dont worry about life and give the best of you. Live the life you love. Do not spend your time being a self-righteous nuisance - desperate to connect.

Bottle caps seem to be the most common thing to wash up on a beach and at the same time the most dangerous for sea birds. Mostly the plastic ones. In various colours. They can bob around in the water forever.‎ Most things in nature are born, grow and eventually die. Plastic bottle caps are forever. The sea is a mess.

Logbook » The New 'Goal' Diggers

Are the days where people actually marry because they are in love really gone? It’s not in totality, but it definitely is on it's way out. The 21st century men are now more picky in choosing a partner for life, seeing that finances play a pivotal role and is the number one killer of relationships and marriages.

His life partner has to have a job or be carrying in some form of income into the union. Gone are the days, when a man took a wife and promised her family to take care of her. In the olden days, the woman would be responsible for the home and kids, while the man was the sole bread winner. Now, things have changed tremendously as both partners have to take home the bread.

Evidence of this so called ‘new age’ type of union is evident, even in pop culture and notable in a popular song titled ‘I don’t mind’ by Usher featuring Juicy J. In the song, Usher states that even if she’s ‘dancing on the pole’ as long as she’s making her money, he won’t mind. Note, Usher is a Grammy award winning singer and song writer. He has sold out many concerts and it would seem that money would not be an issue when it comes to him. Yet, he's the one that has taken on the responsibility of showing men that hey, its ok that even though she doesnt makes her bread conventionally, the fact is that shes contributing to paying the bills.

Three (3) attributes that the 21st century man looks for in a woman he chooses to make a wife.

1. She must be independent – Some men no longer want their women to be totally dependent on them financially. Her independence (as long as she’s not making more money than him) is vital for the longevity of the relationship. Plain and straight, she must have a job.

2. She must be ambitious – Even if she doesn't have the regular 9 - 5 She should have initiative and ambition to want to better herself. Even if it's a hustle, like stripping according to Usher, he wont mind as long as you can help pay the light bill.

3. She must be coming into the union with some form of asset like a house or car or well off family which can help out when times get hard and not her two long hand. The 21st century man is more quick to marry a woman who already has her own stuff or whose family has a business and some links in the business world which he can somehow benefit from. There has to be something that he should be benefiting from the relationship. He is looking for someone who can 'help him out' as well.

While sex is still the most important thing to men; these days, women have to bring more to the table than just sex and a hot body. The value of sex has fallen so drastically, that little importance is placed on actual relationships. Men don't need to wife or wine and dine a girl following the 90 day rule to have sex. Instead, if and when he's ready to settle, his partner has to be exceptional and it doesn't hurt if she has a little change in the bank.

So, to the 21st century man, go forth and prosper. Love is secondary, right?
