I THOUGHT THIS WAS HILARIOUS, AND IT'S ABSOLUTELY TRUE!! THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A PERFECT MAN OR WOMAN FOR THAT MATTER. MY ADVICE IS FIND THAT PERSON YOU ALWAYS WANNA BE WITH AND CANNOT REALLY BE WITHOUT AND MAKE IT WORK!!!
In money, and in life, you are very often your own worst enemy. You promise yourself you're going to diet, and then eat not one or two french fries but a whole plate. You decide to really commit to saving for retirement; only to wind up with a new pair of shoes in your closet.Self-sabotage happens no matter how hard you try to prevent it.
At least part of the blame lies with your brain. It spends a lot of time working for you—it's involved in everything from breathing to buying shoes—but it can also work against you.
"Your brain will give you a lot of emotional signals, and some of them are not very useful. In fact, they can be quite misleading," says George Loewenstein, a professor of economics and psychology at Carnegie Mellon University.
Knowing how to interpret the signals and trying to ignore ones that may lead to trouble is key to getting your finances in order. Your brain doesn't give you very reliable signals about when you should spend and when you should save, and the implication of that is that you really need to think it out.That's why impulse buying is a no-no.
LOL THIS IS HILARIOUS, KANYE WHY ARE YOU TRIPPIN OUT? LOL, IT'S CALLED SUCCESS OR SHLD I SAY FAME, WHAT YOU GONNA DO BECOME UNSUCCESSFULL LOL LMAO????

Hennessy, the bestselling Cognac in the world, today announces the kick-off of the third annual edition of the acclaimed Hennessy Artistry series, in Nigeria. The ‘global art of mixing’ arrives in Lagos on September 10th 2009 with a series of live-music concerts featuring a thrilling cocktail of some of the city’s fastest rising urban-music artistes.

Each producer has selected an artiste from his repertoire with the potential to be ‘the next big thing’, and all 5 artistes will battle it out on the Hennessy Artistry stage four times in September before the Grand Finale at the end of the month. The artistes are Bez (for Cobhams), Ice Prince (for Jesse Jagz), Mo’Cheddah (for Knighthouse), Jimmy Flames (for Dr. Frabz) and Blaise (for Mr. Daz). The shows will involve an exciting eclectic mix of soul, hip-hop and R&B, and will begin at Saipan on September 10th, followed by Volar on September 11th, Q Club on September 18th and Nu Grotto on September 19th. These shows are the pre-cursors to an exclusive Grand Finale scheduled to hold on Friday September 25th at The Oriental Hotel in Victoria Island.
