THOUGHTS: BILLIONS TV SHOW


This may as well be my second favorite show next to Suits in their own room for brains and ego genre. I am not being overly dramatic but if you haven’t watched the show, you better fucking start now.. Why am I hooked?

  • There’s a twist in every episode. (May it be Chuck’s betrayal to his bestfriend or Axe’s lie to his wife, firing of Bryan or the betrayal of Taylor – like one thing happens one after the other..
  • Like One big ball of ego is running the show
  • A ton of testosterone floating in every scene.
  • Ben Kim’s elevator dance
  • Seeing that there’s a strong female lead character who only uses words to rebuild a man
  • Learning a thing or two such as Catherine the Great and horse penises or the matador perspective.
  • Because ultimately, who doesn’t want to learn about wealth and power?
  • Or Lara’s principle to teach her children a life not ruled by money
  • And heck, it’s in New York City!
  • How can you even choose between Axe and Chuck? No? Because you can’t! But I’m secretly rooting for Axe anyway.

Some good ‘ol lines from the big ball of penises:

  • What’s the point of having FUCK YOU MONEY if you never say FUCK YOU?
  • When I pull a deal off the table, I leave Nagasaki behind
  • The enemy worse than a dangerous man with unlimited resources is one without nothing to lose
  • Whenever you can, put a company in your mouth
  • The best way to bond with someone isn’t doing a favor, it’s asking for one.
  • You don’t have to outswim the shark. You just have to outswim the guy you’re scuba diving with
  • What we do has consequences, intended and unintended. The decisions we make, the actions we bring, have weight.
  • I like nightmares. When I wake up. They leave me deeply valuing my reality
  • Become anti fragile or die.
  • The fact that you can’t fully understand that doesn’t mean he’s wrong. It just means you haven’t gone beyond your own limits.
  • We all mask certain emotions. Bjorn Borg did. Eventually it will end up costing you everything
  • You were wrong. Im not human. Im a machine. Im a fucking terminator.
  • Only people with money forget about money
  • They may be cheering now. But believe me they are dying to boo.
  • Nobody leaves a negotiation happy.
  • Only a fool doesn’t look at the downside but only a coward allows it to dissuade him from that which he knows he must do.
  • But either way, GET OFF MY DICK..
  • The great never sacrifice the important for the urgent.
  • Hate is nature’s most perfect energy source. It’s endlessly renewable.

I may have to admit it – I think the character of axe is insanely hot. Brains and being a douche? Oh yes Sir! ❤

LEARN: Sandwich Generation


LEARN: Sandwich Generation

The generation of middle-aged individuals who are pressured to support both of their aging parents and growing children.

They are sandwiched between the obligation to care for their aging parents – who may be ill, unable to perform tasks or in need of financial support – and children who require financial, physical and emotional support.

I actually dread to be in this situation. I love my parents so much and I’m sure that whatever situation I’m in, may I be struggling or in a bountiful financial situation, I will give them financial support especially when they are out of their jobs already, though I’m scared that I won’t be able to provide my family the lifestyle that I grew up in.

I’m scared that I won’t be successful enough and end up having a mediocre job, salary and life.
Oh hello Midlife Crisis but still too young.

LEARN: How to make heaps of Money


The current entrepreneurial drumbeat is to do what feels good, fill your head with inspirational quotes, be happy, and everything will work out great. Focus on your strengths and ignore your weaknesses. If it sounds positive, then it must be good. If it sounds negative, then it must be bad.

Like it or not, that’s nothing but a bunch of utopian fluff.

All that glitters is not gold. Seeking instant gratification is never the path to long-term happiness and fulfillment. And in all likelihood, you’ll never achieve great things without facing tough obstacles, crashing and burning, and finally rising up from the ashes.

If you want to be successful, learn to challenge conventional wisdom and question your own beliefs. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. And when it comes to making important decisions, learn to look at things from different perspectives.

If you want to make it in a complex world, you have to be a multidimensional thinker.

EVERYDAY: 5 Habits I need to Start


Image

  1. SAVE – A weekly act, which starts with Php 50 and an additional Php 50 for the second one. And hopefully, learn to invest intelligently.
  2. GRATITUITY BOTTLE – A daily act of writing anything to be thankful of during the day. – may it be for a perfect hair, a Php 10,000 deposit or a day with loved ones.
  3. AVOIDING JUNK – Because it’s too easy to give in to junkfood while watching your favorite TV series. And MCDO is just beside our office – sinful fries it is.
  4. SMILE – I don’t know what second year college handed to me. I became antisocial and avoided people. This time, I’ll assume and see everything good in a person.
  5. EXERCISE – I wanted to start doing exercises daily. But to keep it safe, at least do exercise thrice in a week.

LEARN: Naked Call


It’s an option strategy in which an investor writes ( sells) call options on the open market without owning the underlying security.

The upside of this strategy is that the investor could receive income in the form of premiums without putting up a lot of capital.

Though it is risky as there is limited upside potential should the stock rise above the exercised price of the options that are sold.

LEARN: House Poor


A situation that describes a person who spends a large proportion of his or her total income on home ownership, including mortgage payments, property taxes, maintenance and utilities. House poor individuals are short of cash for discretionary items and tend to have trouble meeting other financial obligations like vehicle payments.

It’s a situation where most of the income is spent on household expenses.
