Difference between Rich and wealth


If I was wealthy I could buy the beach,

But I am rich, for now, the beach is out of reach,

If I was wealthy I could buy a plane,

But am rich, I can`t afford gas for the plane,

If I was wealthy, I could have investments,

But I am rich, I own businesses,

If I was wealthy I would be living in a castle fashion,

But now I am rich, I live in a mansion,

This is not a wish play,

But what I am trying to say,

Rich and wealthy is not the same,


I am wealthy, I bought properties,

You are rich, you won lotteries,

I am rich, I worked hard,

You are wealthy, you were patience,

You are rich, you think of raising funds,

Am wealthy I think of donations,

Doing for yourself or for the nations,

Being rich you focus on basic needs,

Being wealthy, you dream of self actualization needs,

However you define it,

Rich and wealthy is not the same,


Investments or business,

Hard work or lottery ticket,

Or even patience or hard work,

Or both patience and hard work,

Just like a career and a job,

Credit and reputation

They sound the same

They can point to the same direction,

But just like silver and gold

Rich and wealthy is not the same,



Excuse me this not a job, its my career


I have been trailing on the path of hard work and passion and look what I found, clients rushing back and forth to me and terming my work as quality. Global recognition and camera flashing all around, people looking up to me and all the financial freedom. I call them collateral benefits and I never saw them coming since I was too focused on the results rather than the benefits.

So I spent the last of my years building reputation and a good kind of karma is following me now. I got experience, skills and credentials that can shoot me to the highest sky limits. Maybe this is the time to ask for a salary increment, look for better jobs (high paying ones), brag about how much I can do or complain about how my boss is a douche bag. I can`t emphasize enough on sleepless nights I spent if the subject will once in a while pop up. On that note, can we talk about the amount of time and energy I siphoned from the normal activities to this? Yeah, I skipped that date to write a blog? That’s lame.



I am sorry doctor I got this back pain and eye strain from the fact that I stayed online on my bed in my pajamas all day long. I was handling some project in the office and did not realize it was midnight, that’s where I got the sleeping problem. Just give me some prescription to keep me going. Yeah, yeah I promise I will do that jog around the block to avoid getting fat. But what will make me fat? I only take popcorns and a cup of coffee that I sip and leave it to get cold when things get yummy. If you don’t get me in the gym, party zones, you know where to find me. I will be working on something in my comfort zone.


My boss calls it hard working, my family calls it workaholic, some call it stupid addiction but I call it career passion. I recall sometime back when I told a client not to pay me because the joy of doing it kept me satisfied. That’s sounded lame too, someone told me to snap out of it since I had bills to pay and a life to live. I told him I already have a life, I am contented with what I do.

If this was a job I could be yearning for high pay now, but I don’t, since it`s my career and I enjoy what I do and I am satisfied with that. Ironically, I am the highest paid one in this field and didn’t ask for it. If this was my job I could be complaining of much work but I don’t, it is my career, I can’t just get enough. If this was my job, I could be complaining to my boss for salary increment or promotion, but it is my career and ironically, my boss is the one seeking for my attention now.

And whoever you are out there reading this, stop going around knocking people’s doors looking for a job and find a career within you.

It will never be over; I made a promise I will

It might look like the last chapters of it,

I feel like I am on the wall,

I feel like this is the last hit,

I`ve flown, ran and crawled,

I have come far to give up now,

I know I am on the ground,

I will Rise up from it,

My destiny might be far from this,

But it will never be over; I made a promise I will,



I may not believe in happy ending,

But I know I will succeed,

I may not believe in destiny splendid,

But I know my dreams must be seen,

Rocks cutting through my sandals,

Thorns piercing through my skin,

Strolling feeling weak to stumble,

Thirst is killing me,

Out of strength and sun drilling me,

I have come too far to give up now,

Even if it feel it is the last raw

I have made thousand promises, ocean of tears,

It seems like I cannot move any more inch,

But it will never be over; I made a promise I will

Is what you have a real relationship or just an emotionship?


They say at times that, it is hard for men to keep girlfriends who are just friends. Just as a certain relationship speaker said, “For a man, a plutonic girlfriend is a woman who, he either have not yet slept with or tried to but something went wrong somewhere”. As a woman, being in such a relationship, have you ever wondered what usually runs through that man’s head whenever you cross his mind?

Men are secretive about their intentions for a while even if they realize the plutonic friendship is a time bomb for a potential romantic relationship. Whether you are in a real relationship or a plutonic one there are certain feelings attached to it. These will determine whether what you have is a real relationship or just an emotionship.

The best method to know how a man feels about you and his real intentions is to find out his response when he gets the news bomb that you have just been married. I will not go to the details on how you can do it as a woman and make it look like it is serious. Women are blessed with creativity just make use of it, you can send your friend or do it yourself. The most important part will be the responses that the man will give when caught up in that moment. Below are the categories of the responses and their interpretations.

  1. Okay

When a man goes like okay, when he gets the news bomb that you have just been married, it can mean a lot. However, we can break down into two basic interpretations. He might be having some feelings but saw that coming, accepted and move on. On the flip side, it can also mean that you are a complete stranger in his romance life. You might be very beneficial and mutual friends but an ok can also draws a clear wedge line of what you have is just friends.


  1. What? That is impossible

After getting that you should be going like `oh my gosh he really loves me` or folding your grips tight with excitement. This means that the guy actually have real feelings for you and wants to keep you to himself since she sees the potential in you. These are the Alihandro types that can even stop the wedding when the priest goes `if anyone has objections why these two should not get married step forward`. Keep your hopes and game up, you can be the one.


  1. Thank God, finally                    

This can mean two things. Literally, it means you are either a thorn in their life or a bother who keep stalking his romantic peace. From the bottom of my heart, I am sorry if you get this. The best antidote is not to feel sorry for yourself and find out where you went wrong, but to just accept the fact and move on. However, not too fast, it can also mean that you were like his dear sister, who he wished that you be happily married to someone else but not him. In both cases, you do not appear in his romantic picture for a very long time, usually forever

When I thought I have made up my brain,

And never want to see you again

I find myself thinking about you all the time,

This means you keep running on my mind,

Over and over again,

And find myself entangled in a web of pain,

I try hard to fight it and hope with time,

All this will be a long gone tide

Now all hope is lost in vain,

But when am about to give up, it’s you again,


When you love someone on this earth,

And doesn’t love you back,

You get yourself hurt,

I know I am not faithful to what we have,

And you love me despite of that,

But trust me despite of what I have done,

Nothing can alter the love for you that I have,

I know you feel hurt and cry day and night,

I feel hurt too and always loose the fight,

But when I am about to give up, it’s you again,


 Maybe we should give up,

And go our separate ways,

And everyone to give back,

Everything love made us gain,

But even if I leave this and go back,

I will have nowhere to stay,

Coz the place you found me stuck,

Ceased to exist anyway,

I thought of tossing and perishing in the slain,

But when I am about to give up, it’s you again,




I promise to be faithful,

But that falls into your handful,

Collection of my broken promises,

What is keeping me alive is your forgiveness,

Do you think I enjoy living in this pain?

Trust me I want to stay clean and safe,

Even more than you ever imagined and aimed,

But something is toying with my aims,

Am fighting playing games in vain,

But when I thought of giving up, it’s you again,





I broke all my promises, but you loved me anyway,

I keep hurting what we have, but you love me anyway,

I am the most of your unfaithful, but you love me anyway,

I entangle you in a cycle of life messes, but you love me anyway,

Everything I do is pushing you away,

I love you so much but I think it’s time to let our grip away,

What makes you still love me anyway?

You have all the reasons to hate me trailing from your driveway,

I will understand if you walk away,

But when I am about to give up, it’s you again,










It may sound cliché fussing that I don’t sleep,

I don’t eat,

I don’t drink, or I feel like to scream,

As matter of fact that is very true,

But I don’t want to brag and look like a fool,

I feel itchy but the quench for the pleasure leaves me hurt,

am infected by this love like an arrow through my heart,


My skin is broken, and blood is oozing,

My heart is broken, your love is bruising,

Someone told me there is something called a spell,

That makes you do things you cant tell,

I didn’t believe at first, but well,

It clear now that I am under your spell,

Coz I cant move on since I have an arrow of your love through my heart,


Days for true love are gone fast, I feel last living in the past,

I feel silly that I am stuck, true love today is for nuts,

Maybe you are gone and hate me that bad,

Maybe one day I will get unstuck,

I have done it a thousand times am now numb with pain,

Am fine that’s what I tell myself every day

But the fact is that almost everything every day, reminds me of your every way,



Silly as it is, stupid as it is,

If this is not love, tell me what it is,

People call me stupid but I know I am not,

Some call it foolish but I know its not,

You said you don’t feel the same way,

You don’t have to anyway,

I just wanted you to know, before you walk away,

May be I will make it somehow,

The way I believe it will be one day somehow,

I might pretend a thousand times am not hurt,

But your love is like an arrow stuck through my heart,

What happens if your birthday falls on February 29th

happy birthdayleap-year-calendar-circled-2012

Have it ever crossed your mind waking up one day to celebrate your birthday, only to discover that the day you were born does not exist on the calender? A considerable number of us are lucky to be born on a day of a month that is not affected by a leap year. You can commemorate the day you are born in whichever day the year brings. Regardless whether it will be a leap year or full year, you will have your day catered for. However, have you ever considered that there are those lucky or unlucky few who celebrate their birthdays in different days every year? This is for the simple reason that, the day they were born does not exist in a the calender in a given year.
A friend of mine was born on 29th day of February and she invited me for her birthday on 28th February this year. She however celebrated her birthday on 29th February almost three years ago. Born on this day, she has three days option of celebrating her birthday. She can either do it on 28th February, 29th February in case of a leap year, or 1st of March. Alternatively, she can also decide to go all the way from 28th to 1st of March, and have party all day and night since all those days represent her birthday celebration events.
In actual calculations, a full year has 365.2425 days. If we decide to ignore the digits after the decimal, we will find ourselves so behind with time. Logically, we will end up having seasons shift and find ourselves celebrating Christmas holidays on March or even mid months of the year, among other events. This is the reason why after every four years a day is added to the month with the least days, i.e. February.  This is what results to a leap year.
Do not feel sad if you have to celebrate your birthday on the correct day after four years.  Have you ever considered that your birthday is linked with other interesting events and facts? An interesting thing I found about this day is that there is a tradition that as a woman, you can propose to a man on this day.
Some of greatest icons in the history who were born on February 29th

  • John pope III
  • Roy parker, the greatest American baseball player
  • Naoko liljima, a historic Japanese actress
  • Saul Williams, an iconic singer, songwriter an actor and poet
  • Ja rule, American rapper and actor

Major historical events also took place on February 29th

  • Finland war ended after the negotiations
  • Gordy Howe scored his 800th goal and recorded the highest number of scores in NHI history in Hartford whalers.
  • Tokyo Sky tree, the tallest skyscraper in the world was officially completed.

These are just but a few, however, you can nice yourself with more research and find out interesting facts and events linked to this day.

The following is a list of some of years that have 29th day of February as from the year 2014, you only add four years on the preceding year to get the sequence of the following years:

2016, 2020, 2024, 2028, 2032, 2036, 2040, 2044, 2048… wish you a happy birthday and may you live long.
