You can give but never take back
You can pass but never be exact.
You can let out and not keep.
You can keep and take account.
You can play with and have someone buy it.
Geeky for the past 30's…
Can’t express out loud
Can’t be myself much
Can’t loose much
Can’t seem to enjoy for real
Can’t be carefree as before
Got to be reserved
There are emotions and feeling I don’t want to acknowledge.
Simply because I am coward; afraid of its risks.
Somebody will get hurt, confused and/or betrayed, if not now, later on.
How can it be fair/happy either?

If you want to bring someone around to your way of thinking, you should make sure they have a cup of coffee in their hand, according to research showing that caffeine makes us more open to persuasion.
The Australian researchers say a caffeine hit improves our ability to process information and increases the extent to which we listen to and take on board a persuasive message. They tested this by quizzing people about their attitudes to voluntary euthanasia and abortion before and after either the equivalent of about two cups of coffee or a placebo.
They were also given a persuasive argument to read after having the caffeine.
The experiments showed that "caffeine increases persuasion through instigating systematic processing of the message".
But caffeine also puts people in a better mood, which makes them more likely to agree with a message, the researchers say.
The research is posted on the Queensland University of Technology website and is submitted for publication in the European Journal of Social Psychology.
Co-author Dr Blake McKimmie says the research suggests that caffeine increases our ability to scrutinise the content of a message.
The study has implications for advertisers, he says, because it suggests that they should schedule adverts for times when people are likely to be consuming caffeine, such as breakfast time.
Drinking too much coffee, however, means we are more likely to be distracted by peripheral factors, rather than the strength of the argument.
"So if you're looking at an advertisement you may be more distracted by the attractiveness of the person selling it than the actual product," he said.
Caffeine and the brain
Associate Professor Pradeep Nathan of Monash University, an expert in behavioural neuroscience who was not involved in the research, says caffeine stimulates the central nervous system including the brain, where it affects several neurotransmitters.
The Melbourne-based researcher says it improves memory and makes us pay closer attention to tasks at hand.
"It does improve attention and it can improve memory, so by being more attentive and remembering your attitude to a particular thing may change," he says.
"If you're more attentive, yes [it does have implications for advertising]. Advertising works on the principle of getting people's attention, you want to get as many people interested in your ads as possible."

I am supposed to post something I wanted to post for soooo long.
Unfortunately, it was not saved.
But then again, I still felt lighter after putting them in words.

UAAP Men's Tennis W L
Santo Tomas 7 0
La Salle 6 1
Univ of Phils 3 3
Univ of East 1 6
Ateneo 1 6
MANILA, Philippines--University of Santo Tomas still found no match and extended its unbeaten run to seven games in the UAAP men's tennis tournament Friday at the Rizal Memorial Tennis Center courts.
The Tigers shut out Ateneo, 5-0, to move within a win of sweeping the elimination round, while La Salle also romped to a 5-0 wipeout of University of the East to keep the second spot with a 6-1 record.
UST sophomore James Cañete hardly broke a sweat in crushing Ateneo's Mark Joseph Avila, 6-0, 6-0, in the first singles match to set the tone in the lopsided tie.
The veteran tandem of Wilbur Orillana and Alexander Diego disposed of Ateneo's Julian Lagman and Miko Amoncio, 6-0, 6-1, in the doubles, while Raymond Villarete clinched the win for the Tigers with a 6-0, 6-1 decision over Gabriel Ruaro.
Although assured of victory, the Tigers did not let up as Keff Gamama and Keane Barraquias downed Leyan Moncera and Paul Cang, 6-1, 6-3. Maclean Barraquias capped the rout with a 6-1, 6-4 win over Ayo Canlas.
The Tigers will shoot for an 8-0 elimination sweep against La Salle at 12 noon on Sunday.
La Salle similarly coasted to straight set victories with Irwin Edwin de Guzman touching it off with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Novo Navarro.
Archers Juan Carlo Pantua and Laurence Andrew Magaway blanked the pair of AJ Villalon and Joseph Nieva, 6-0, 6-0, in the first doubles match, while Michael Basco prevailed over Michael Belen, 6-2, 6-1.
The other La Salle victors were David Alexander De Koenigswarter and John Will Baldonado over Rhoel Santiago and Ivan Orilla, 6-2, 6-1, and Jandrick de Castro over Lyndon Mantua, 6-1, 6-0.

MANILA, Philippines -- Tournament sweeps highlighted the UAAP championship runs of the University of the Philippines in softball and University of Santo Tomas in men’s tennis.
Far Eastern University, however, settled for winner-take-all matches in football after failing to finish off its opponents in the men’s and women’s divisions on Sunday.
UST also secured finals berths in baseball, men’s volleyball and women’s tennis.
A rookie played hero as UST stayed unscathed in eight elimination-round games of men’s tennis to emerge as outright champion.
Raymond Villarete clinched the decider to lift the UST Tigers past the De La Salle University Green Archers, 3-2, for their second straight crown on Sunday at the Rizal Memorial Tennis Center courts.
Villarete, an 18-year-old recruit from La Salle Green Hills, prevailed over John Will Baldonado, 6-3, 6-3, in the final singles match.
The Archers took the first two singles as Irwin de Guzman nipped Maclean Barraquias, 7-5, 4-6, 6-3, and Michael Basco downed James Cañete, 6-2, 6-3.
But the veteran Tigers won the doubles with Wilbur Orillano and Alexander Diego downing Laurence Magaway and Juan Carlo Pantua, 6-3, 6-4, and the tandem of Ryan Repunte and Keane Barraquias repulsing Jandrick de Castro and Pereme Jeremia Alina, 6-4, 7-5.
University of the Philippines, meanwhile, swept its matches to end Adamson University’s four-year reign in softball.
Dione Macasu, the MVP, Best Pitcher and Best Slugger, struck out the Lady Falcons’ final two batters to seal the Lady Maroons’ 7-5 win on Saturday at the UST field.
The Lady Falcons tied the game in the sixth, 5-5, on a Cloiene Muyco homer, but Amalia Sayuno responded with a two-run home run in the seventh for a 7-5 UP lead.
In football, Ateneo de Manila University forged a do-or-die match with hitherto unbeaten FEU via a 2-0 decision at the Ateneo field. The Blue Booters survived the ejection of coach Ompong Merida as Gino Tongson scored in the 52nd minute and Alvin Perez headed the second goal in the 72nd.
La Salle also stunned defending champion FEU with a 3-2 win via a penalty shoot-out to forge a decider in the women’s finals.
In men’s volleyball, UST and FEU arranged a championship showdown by beating their semifinal foes at the Blue Eagle Gym.
The Tigers ousted the Falcons, 20-25, 25-17, 20-25, 25-16, 16-14, to claim the first finals slot before the Tamaraws forged the duel with a 25-11, 25-14, 25-19 win over the Maroons.
UST also reached the championship round in baseball after slipping past National University, 11-10, in the semifinals, and in women’s tennis following a 4-1 triumph over Ateneo.
