Life hack: You must schedule a DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) appointment online (like I did), or else you will be waiting all day. Importantly, you save a huge amount of time.
For instance, this morning, I arrived to my scheduled appointment at 10:20 sharp. As I walked into DMV, there were two separate lines, scheduled appointment (via online) and walk-in. Nobody on the scheduled appointment line until I showed up (compared to walk-in line of about 50 people).
Why was I at DMV anyway? My dad is at work right now. Thus, I had to register his vehicle. Also, today is my day off.
As I slowly walked to my scheduled appointment line, I felt like a boss or VIP. (It almost reminded me of the time when I would easily walk through a Vegas nightclub, even though I was only wearing a hooded-sweater, sweatpants, and basketball shoes. Courtesy from my good friend, who used to work in Vegas at that time.)
A few seconds later, the front desk person called me. (Just like that. Yuh, I just beat 50 people.)
The vehicle was approved and registered. What time is it now? 10:33 AM. (13 minutes later.) My appointment is over. Again, I walked out as a boss or VIP, while I saw the very long walk-in line. (I sound like a douchebag.)
One life hack discovered as I continue to search for more.
Relationships are never perfect. Eventually, disagreements will occur from time to time. Toughest part is resolving the conflict.
I do not yell anymore in disagreements. Unlike before, I have controlled my anger. Yelling and whining will never go anywhere. (Lesson learned.) In resolving the conflict, I respect the person's side of the story, even if I am against it.
For instance, I had a disagreement with somebody. He is against (paid) online dating apps because I might meet a serial killer. He would rather have me date somebody only through mutual friends.
You can say what you want about me. I respect your feedback. I appreciate your honesty. Yes, I know you are very concerned about me. (I understand.) Thus, you are going for what is best for me.
Then again, it is up to me. I am sorry.
I am no expert, (and I never will be). I do not want to be that Mr. Know-It-All. (I used to be like that.) I had a huge ego. Honestly, I am no James Bond around the ladies. I used to be the guy saying, "This is how you talk to a girl." (What was I thinking? I retire from being that type of guy.) Also, I am a YouTuber but I am not famous. (I wish.) I graduated from college at a late age. (I am a slow, late bloomer.) I thought I knew everything.
Again, I am not perfect. In life, I will try my best to reach at my highest potential. Importantly, I am going with what makes me happy, such as blogging, coaching, and YouTubing.
As of now, I will only tell you what I have learned (based on my experience). I do not give long lectures to people anymore. (It gets annoying.) I must think before I say something, or else I will be a hypocrite.
I will keep this blog post short and simple. To this day, I am constantly learning. Until the day I die, I am constantly learning.
That's all I can write or type, for the reason that I am not perfect.
But it did not turn out pretty well.
Today, I assisted somebody. I was doing a good deed, or that is what I assumed.
What is a good deed? Naturally helping others without being told or asked.
He seemed like he needed help. A few seconds later, he told me something like, "That's why they should be over here, not there!" Thus, the good deed turned into a mistake. In that case, I backed off and gave him space. Then again, at least I tried.
This will not stop me from helping somebody in the near future. I am grateful for having great parents, who raised me the right way as a "good" person.
For today, go on and do a good deed to someone.
It has been 7 days since I have written my last post. I have the fever (so I will make this post short and simple). I rarely get sick. Also, I have a huge headache and extreme chills. Obviously, I must continue drinking more water, and I must go back to bed.
Today is the title of this post, "Happy Valentine's Day." I am still single. I am more happy than few months ago. Why come I was unhappy a few months ago? During Christmas, I looked at people's social media. (Couples seemed happy. It got to my head. I called myself, "A lonely blogger.") Now, I understand. Patience is the key. (Do not force the issue.)
I must sleep now. Good night! (This is the shortest post I have ever written.)
I believe mostly everybody likes at least some attention. I admit it. For instance, I am on social media. (That is attention.) Usually, uploaded pictures and videos from social media are the highlights of somebody's life.
It depends on what type of attention I want though. Heck, I hate receiving overflowing, on-going junk (unnecessary) e-mail.
Last night, I saw a great NBA game of the Sacramento Kings hosting the Golden State Warriors. (It was my birthday gift given to me from a good friend. He gave me lower level seats.) Everything was great, except the Dubs (nickname for Warriors) lost.
Here are some great plays from the Dubs shown below.
I must always remind myself to never force the issue. In life, go with the flow. What does that mean? According to Google dictionary, it defines, "Be relaxed and accept a situation, rather than trying to alter or control it."
How to "go with the flow?" Here is a list (that I can think of right now) shown below of myself "going with the flow."
