Reading Reviews Online – Some Can Be True or False

Do you often read reviews and do your research online before you travel, buy products, call a certain service company, and other goods and services? Nowadays there are people who plague the internet with fake reviews and falsifying information with different usernames and post reviews from unknown areas, and we should be careful when reading reviews. Some people get paid to write them, some people who have never even traveled or experienced a product or something, they try to find review sites and go with what other people are saying and they do research online before writing a review and some are so good with their craft of fooling people who you do not know the difference between fake or real.

There are ways to detect a fake review. If people exaggerate too much, drag on, and come up with very strange usernames and the way people write. You have to really read between the lines. To me personally I do not trust online reviews and I barely and rarely even read them, why? because in the end everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and I would rather go experience something on my own or when I buy a product to experience it and to try it for myself. If I am going to listen to every person, and read all these reviews, I won’t go anywhere, I won’t try anything. It is so important to try to stay away from reviews. You don’t know if you are reading a real or fake one. Some you cannot even detect on it because they wrote it so well. Some get paid and some go over the top because they are asked to. Some are so good at what they do and they persuade you so much, and do you often read online testimonials? A lot of these reviews come from a lot of researchers online, there are people who do all sorts of things to get some money, but I think it is wrong to give false reviews, and praising companies that should not even exist, and praising and giving a good name to places that should not even be in our world, but they are and they fool people with false advertising.

Have you ever been a victim of it? Do you read reviews and determine whether or not to purchase or to fly anywhere or to go to a resort or hotel? Do you believe in everything you read on review sites? I personally don’t and I don’t take them seriously. Yes although some can be real by individuals who write it, but in my opinion, I would steer away from those things. I am a person who likes to experience and give my own opinion, rather than listening to so many others who can be lying about something. Remember the internet can be misleading, it can be misinterpreted and so many people can understand things differently. I guess that is how it is in this life right? Prevent yourself from being fooled and just try it and experience it for yourself. There is nothing wrong in that. All the best to you.

It Is Not About The Quantity Of Friends, Its About The Quality

In life we will come across so many people in our lives, and some think that the more friends you have the more popular you will be and the more better you will be, and that is wrong. You can have so many friends, you can hundreds of people being your friend and some people will be more concerned about having quantity instead of quality, well, that should not be. I’d rather have a few friends who will be by my side, to back me up, and to support, love and appreciate me for who I am. Everything should be mutual when it comes to friends. It takes two to tango and it takes both to be the backbone that keeps the friendships up. Also, don’t trust people so quickly, don’t give in so easily. Ask yourself a few questions, will they be loyal to you? will they back you up? How will they treat you? Will they use you? Unfortunately in society these days, you need to double triple check before you make friends with people and this day in age, trust has become so rare and there are people of all walks of life. Do you really want to put yourself in a predicament of hanging out with someone who will back stab, betray and use you?

In this life we live in now, we need to analyze people very well before we give our all, before we share our most personal stories and our life’s journey with them. It does take time to get to know someone, and friendships and good friendships take time to build. So you build your trust in accordance to how someone is, their actions, words, kindness, their honesty, their loyalty and the way they are to you and how they treat you. When you are out with friends at a restaurant, take a good look and observe, if they are rude to the waiter or waitress, or if they are rude to any other person, it makes you think and question, will they be like that toward me? Will they burst at me like that someday? Actions do speak a lot louder than words and then words and action play hand in hand with each other.

We must open up our eyes a bit more, be more observant, and not to trust people so easily. Take your time to get to know someone before you give it your all. You will know the quality and the friends you have, by just the way they are, you will know what to do whether to pursue the friendship or not. Disrespectful people who do not know how good they have it and take advantage of ones goodness, good heart, and those who do not care, and those who use you, those who spread rumours and share whatever happens to the world, is not a true friend. Some people do not even know the definition of a friend and that is so unfortunate. Take your time, don’t rush into friendships so quickly because you will be burned if you don’t choose your friends wisely and you can be hurt. I do not want anybody hurt.

My family, friends, fans, readers and all my other supporters, I want the best for everyone, and I am speaking through experience. I’ve been burned so many times from fake people, I’ve been hurt so many times, but all it takes is opening up your eyes, being more assertive, being more aware, being more observant of people’s actions, eye language, facial reactions, body language and more. It is so important to take a look at all of that. It will save the hassle in the long run and it will make you decide if they are the right friends for you and if you should continue it or not. It all depends on a person’s personality and the type of friends to choose, but in the end look out for you. Don’t put everyone in one basket, balance it and don’t give in too quickly.

Just take your time. There is no rush to friendships. You will find the suitable people for you. It will take time and effort, but never ever think friendship will never happen for you. Just be patient and go with the flow.  You would not want to go through havoc and trouble. Just believe in yourself and know that there are types of people for you that are suitable. Just relax and take it easy. I’d rather have only a few friends I can trust, depend on and share stories and things with, rather than having hundreds, that will only be their part time and not full time. So just go with your gut instinct and I wish you all the best.

Had A Great Birthday Yesterday – Thank You For The Wishes

for 28 years now on April 30th, I celebrate my birthday. I am so happy and glad for all my birthdays and I am ever so grateful to God for giving me this life and I thank my parents for bringing me into this world and to experience everything I have experienced in my life, with traveling to many places, for giving me everything, a roof over my head, a nice warm bed to sleep in, food to eat and so much more. I am so thankful for everything as I look around the world and people do not even have running water to drink and bathe from. I am so fortunate and I have learned not to take anything from granted in my life.

There were times where some of my birthdays did not go as well as I had hoped for. Once in high school when I turned 16 years old, I had invited about 30 people to come over to my house for my sweet 16 birthday party and it was one of the most embarrassing yet humiliating things in my life where only one person showed up out of all the others. I was thinking they were my friends and everything but they really weren’t. I was devastated that I could not have a sweet 16 party, and also I never knew what it felt like to have a surprise birthday party or even had a big party to celebrate me and my day. I never knew what that feeling was like. I didn’t even know the feeling of when I turned 20, 21 years old where I would have a great party, but I did go to Montreal for my birthdays quite a lot in my early 20′s and to get away from things and to enjoy a dance club here and there with my friends in Montreal. The only parties I have ever had was when I was a kid where a lot of my family came over to celebrate and that is about it. To me The gifts weren’t important, but being with my family and couple of friends is what I want.

I know parties should not matter and everything, but in my case it does. In my early adult life and as an adult now, I want to be able to know what it feels like to have a party. I know that I can create my own party and have people over and stuff and go out but I just get those bad memories again when I was 16 years old. I really never had a lot of friends to begin with and I invited all those people and never showed up except for one. I was crushed and cried for days. I just want to know what it feels like to have a party and its all about me and having people around me that has come to celebrate me. I am hoping that will happen soon. I sometimes feel so isolated and they are feelings that I never want to get back. Nowadays everything is great. My beautiful friends took me out for my birthday over the weekend and surprised me with a cake which was so sweet of them. I will never forget that.

What have you experienced in the past about your birthday? Did you have a birthday that was a blast or not such a blast?

Anyways, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my family, friends and fans for all the birthday wishes, the phone calls, text messages, e-mails, facebook messages, the birthday cards, the birthday e-greetings, virtual cakes, flowers and everything. I really appreciate it so much from the bottom of my heart. I love you all!

The Microsoft Windows 8 – I am Actually Enjoying It

I know it has been some time and fallen a bit behind in newer technology and I know that Windows 8 has been out and I finally got into it after using windows 7, but I enjoy using both still, and I think Windows Vista was the worst one Microsoft came out with but this newest one put a whole new perspective with things. This past week I begun to use Windows 8 for the first time ever on my  brand new laptop and I am actually enjoying the experience. You can still use windows 7 as you can view as desktop or you can go back into windows 8. I really like that you can go instantly into your e-mail and check it out right from your desktop without having to go to the website itself, log in and check it out. This way you are right into it, it saves a lot of time and you can view weather, stocks, finance, travel, trending news, and download so many apps.

I downloaded Shazam and when I am somewhere with my laptop and listen to a song I like, I can shazam it and get the song I want. I really like all the new features it has. I am quite impressed. I always said I am not going to get Windows 8 as it looks messy and disorganized, but once I got into it and I started getting used to it, I am really enjoying the experience. In the store when I was checking it out, I never really got the feeling of it and I could not concentrate on it as much because of all the surrounding distractions and the sales person around me, but I learned windows 8 now in under half an hour. It doesn’t take me much to learn about things and I am a fast learner. It is such a great software and there are so many things I am liking about it, how you can personalize it to your  favourite colour and them, how it is secure, password protected when you start your computer and everything, and I like the photo files, the new snipping tool.

Do you use windows 8? or do you use another version of windows? or do you use a Mac? I find that a Mac is a lot harder to operate and when it comes to a MAC I am not much into that. I like the iPad, iPhone, iPod and stuff those are good, but when it comes to computers, I prefer a PC Windows. It makes it a whole lot easier to operate and better in organization. What is your opinion on it? What is your preference?

Cruise Ship Travel – Yes Or No?

In Life there are so many ways you can travel and experience new places, take memories home with you for a life time and so many things. Various forms of travel teaches us a thing or two about life and exploring the world, however due to the recent events that happened on board the Carnival Triumph Cruise ship of Carnival Cruise lines that an engine caught fire leading to power outage on the cruise ship with toilets not functioning and more than 4200 passengers and crew aboard the Triumph were completely deserted until rescue came along. They arrived last night safely to the port and it took them hours to tow the ship to the port to get the passengers and crew off the ship safely. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of them and hope they found their way back to their loved ones and are okay. Now the ultimate question on Cruise Ship travel, would you go? Or wouldn’t you go?

To me, Cruise Ship travel is something so incredible and you get to sail to many countries and places all in one vacation. I know some of the incidences that happened with Costa Concordia, Carnival Triumph may deter and prevent people from going on a cruise, but to me, I would still go on a cruise. I love cruise ships a lot and I had studied them a lot and I would pin point which cruise ships would dock at the ports and among everything else. I am very happy I got to travel on 5 cruise ships of all sizes. I want to go on the Oasis of The Seas from Royal Caribbean Cruise line and I want to travel on the bigger cruise ships. I know that it might sound crazy with everything that has happened with the cruises in the past year and a bit, but It will not prevent me from sailing on another ship again. It depends on the cruise line and cruise company you go with too. Do your research, Is the cruise line reputable? It also depends on individuality too and what you want out of a cruise ship trip vacation. Now in your opinion, would you sail on a cruise ship? Have you been on a cruise ship before? What are your feelings and thoughts about them? What Cruise line would you sail with? What do you know about cruise ships instead of the obvious?

To me, I would go on a cruise ship no problem. All the best to everyone!

What Traveling Means To Me. I am Glad I can Help People In It

Hello everyone, today I am going to talk to you about what traveling means to me and how vital it is in my life. I am sure most of us love to travel and go away from civilization and reality once in a while. I am here to tell you about what it means to me and how it has shaped my life. Traveling is one of the most incredible things of life. You get to see different parts of the world, form your own opinion, give it your rating, and each travel story is an experience in itself. Last night I was talking amongst friends on my travel experiences and giving them my expertise. One person has never been on a cruise ship before and has never cruised and so I introduced her to a new world full of cruising and traveling. I must have been talking for over half an hour. It is a passion of mine and I love talking to people about travel. She said that you are an expert. I was just happy and moved by what she said to me. It is amazing what traveling can do for you. It makes you feel more independent in a way, it gives you that push into the world to get out of the city once in a while and just explore the world before your eyes. Its one of the greatest pleasures of life. I am so happy to have experienced it all, and I will continue into my journey. I am creating a new blog all about traveling and everything else Which will launch at the end of January, 2013. I am so excited about the experience to help others in all forms of travel. People told me why don’t you become a travel consultant? Although I would love to but, this is my way of travel consultation. I will not have it as career, but people tell me otherwise.

They said Talin you would be incredible on it and you have so much knowledge than a travel agent does. They said its true, you know so much more than a travel agent does. When I heard this, I said no way, they said yes way. I love it, but I just love consulting people online and personally, but not as a job/career path. I like exploring and traveling has shaped me and my outlook on life. I have seen things and I have been to villages and countries where they are not doing so well, and they don’t make much money. Like Cuba one persons salary of the month is like 15-20 pesos, and the food they get is measured by the government, and so much more. I saw this happening years and years ago when I went to Cuba for the first time back in the 90′s. It gives me time to appreciate what I have and everything I have with grocery stores that are easily reached, good clean water to drink and so much more. I am thankful for everything I have here. I have seen the way people live, and one persons house is like 300-400 square feet, and some homes are like tool sheds and 4 people live in it. They also haven’t even seen a plane or the airport, and when we showed them the airplane and pictures of them and everything, they were so surprised and they were amazed at it. This is also one of the reasons why I love traveling. I meet all different types of people, different cultures, and people of every walks of life. I love it.

I look forward to my next adventures.

So Blessed With All My Experiences In Travel

There is so much I am blessed with and I am so happy to share it with you today. I am so blessed about my experiences in travel and in the past weeks and months, There have been people who have asked me so many questions on travel and so many things and I have helped them with the best of my ability and they came back from their trips so happy and thrilled. They gave feedback and told me that I was there travel consultant. That made me feel so incredible, and so blessed. I want to be able to cater to people, assist them in their travels, and whatever questions they have, I will do my best to answer them. I feel I am a great asset to any travel company out there and I feel though I have enough credentials to get out there to help people and to make a difference in someones travel plans and no matter how big the airport or how small the airport is, no matter where the travel hubs are, and so on and so forth, I am here to assist at anytime. If you would like to know about certain documents, visa’s, passport validation, among tickets, and so many things, I am here always to help you and I am honored to do so. Traveling is one of my favourite things in life and getting out there to explore the world is what I love to do and help people too. Thank you.

It is A Job To Find A Job – It is So Difficult

I cannot believe how difficult it is to find employment these days. It is not like before when over 10 years ago, people really wouldn’t look at someones resume, they would just bring them in for an interview and then boom, hired, now everyone has to go through background checks, a lot of companies want  100 applicants or whatever the case maybe and then they will choose the top 10, whilst the other people get canned. Nowadays, it is not what you know, or the level of education you have, it is who you know in that company. If you do not have the correct networking, and know the right people to get into a job, most of the time they don’t even look at you. There are a few of my friends who got into work by luck and by chance because they know someone in that field that can get them in. You can have 0 Education, and get into somewhere. I have a college and high school diploma, and it taking me a long time to get somewhere. My resume is up to date, and I have had substantial amounts of work experience in the past and they have said nice things about me to some employers of my next job.

I am going crazy with finding a job. There are job coaches, and employment centers, and I have gone through it all. I just can’t seem to get anywhere. I am trying my hardest and applying everywhere online. Now most companies provide their e-mail addresses, and websites to apply for jobs through there. I know the traditional way is to go hand in the resume in person, but some of the employers these days, don’t want that. they make it simple for the applicants to put the resume online and send it that way.

I am telling you, these days because of a lot of people slacking off, and not showing themselves, and some people who have become so lazy in their work and want to go home quick, and those who don’t want to work overtime to show their employers and prove themselves further, and that is the reason why lots of employers look and think twice and maybe 3 times before they can hire a person who actually works hard, and who actually wants to work. Some people slack off and don’t prove themselves and that is why employers, managers, CEO’s don’t trust people anymore, and that is why they hire people they know to do that specific job and don’t hire someone they don’t know. It all makes sense now. I know people out there who are so lazy and don’t want to do anything in their lives, and just go through life doing the bare minimum. Because of people like that, hard workers and those who actually want to work, cannot get anything. I am going crazy. I want to make money, I want to get more experience, I want to further myself in being a person with customer service.

It is starting to drive me crazy and I feel like I am not getting anywhere, but I know something will come up and I know that someone somewhere will discover me and I can start working, and making my own income. I just feel that those days are coming and soon. I am not going to give up and I am going for the right networking and going to ask around like crazy. I am up for doing anything right now and I don’t care about what I studied. I am going back to school for journalism and writing and hopefully I can get a job in a newspaper or some sort of news channel. well, anyways I am hopeful.

I wish everyone else who is also looking for employment all the best. I am in your shoes. so I know and understand perfectly how you feel. Good luck!

Never Be Afraid To Speak Your Mind – Talk Straight, Sit Croquet Is The Way To Go In Life

In this past year, I have learned a lot about never being afraid to speak your mind and not to keep anything inside before exploding. I have learned so much about life this past year, I can write about it, but as your fellow person in this world and as a sister to all, I advise people to never be afraid to speak their mind. If you see something not right, speak up, if people are all over you, speak up, and stand up for your rights. People can talk and talk about things and hound you all the time, but they don’t really know what is going on with you and what your feeling mentally and emotionally and sometimes people run their mouth when they have no idea what you go through day in and day out with life. Life is a hard battle and in order to survive these days, you must always be strong and have a back up plan always. Speaking your mind and standing up for yourself is one of the main things about this day in age. Don’t like people jump and walk all over you. Take a stand and go and stand up for what you believe in and your rights as a person. We all have been given the freedom and the voice to speak up. Nothing is wrong with speaking up, nothing is wrong with freedom of expression.

Everything in life has its ups and downs, and there will be people who bring you up, and there will be others who bring you down. Life is a roller coaster and sometimes there are loops, curves and other things, but always be honest, talk straight, you can sit croquet, but always talk honestly, forthright because you have to be honest with yourself before you can be honest with others. When you respect yourself, you will need to respect yourself enough to stand up for yourself. You need to stand on your own two feet sometimes to fight battles with words to other people, but not in a hurtful way, but in a decent mature manner. You need to set ground rules, you need to put your foot down where needed. Sometimes people carry on and run off with their head, but sometimes you need to step up to the plate and get going. There will always be people who are by your side, and always know that people always have your back, but when it comes time for yourself when your friends are not around, you need to get out of that nest and be strong. Trust me, your relationships with your friends and others will change and to the better. once your friends see that you have guts and stick up for yourself, that is a good feeling to say hey, I protected myself and I am not naive, I am not gullible, and I did it all on my own.

Self-confidence in situations is always a good thing to have and be motivated when it comes time to. Never be another persons pawn and never allow anyone to say check mate to you. Life is like a game of chess, if you don’t stick up for yourself, and if you don’t move along and don’t protect yourself, you are always going to end up in check mate and its hard to revive yourself. Don’t forget how special and how wonderful you truly are. Getting out in the real world, talking to many people and involving yourself and getting into people is something important. You learn peoples personality, you learn the facial features. Are they laughing at you, or with you? You can differentiate so quickly and you can automatically sense that if someone is nice, sincere and pleasant, and sometimes you can sense the person as being rough, disrespectful and everything all in their actions, and words.

So all this being said, never let yourself go to a point where people always know where to hit your emotional and mental nerve. There are people who always have a satisfaction of getting to you. Don’t let that happen. you are better than that and you are someone who is very awesome and if they don’t understand that, then it is time to let yourself go and go into a different circle of life. I mean think about it, would you put yourself up in that predicament? Would you put yourself up to the embarrassment all the time? It is not good for you at all. Don’t always let others fight your word battles all the time, you have to do it yourself, and you will see how much more respect your friends and your people you hang out with will have on you. Do yourself this big favour and protect yourself. No matter who your talking to. step up and put your head up high and make your decisions and don’t let others do it for you. That is the best gift you can give to yourself is your self-respect and sticking up for you. Do it. You won’t go wrong with life. I know you can. just try and you will see the difference. All the best!

Thankful For Each Day, That Comes My Way

Everyday that passes, I am thankful for having gone through another day. Everyday I learn new things whether its from the internet or something about life outside. It is not so much about going through everyday to learn new things, it is the lesson that it teaches you. Each thing in life has a deeper meaning to it and it is up to our individual selves on how we want to define it. life is just too short to be upset, angry and fuss over things. Life is precious and we have only a limited time on earth, so try to make the most of it, be happy, do happy things, live life. Nowadays, I don’t let other peoples negativity ruin me, and I have learned my lesson on that. I am not going to be a statistic to let people be rude to me and make distasteful comments. I too make mistakes, I am not perfect, I have my weaknesses, and I fully admit that. I know that my writing needs a little bit of improvement structurally, but I am working on that and I am going back to school to learn it. I had over 90 in my English courses back in High school and it has been a long time since then and I sort of forgot some things, but I am human, I make mistakes.

I love blogging, and it gets me through everyday, I love writing because it takes out everything from my mind and emptying my heart out to people and all I want is the best for everyone. Its a way for me to share with the world and to get people’s perspectives and I respect them all and I do read them all and thank you all deeply for everything you all do. I am so blessed with great things, the ability to write and the ability to get out there and speak up about issues that need addressing. I am happy most of the time, because when I was bullied when I was a child up until now here and there, I truly believe that I have gotten out of that phase where I was always sad and did not want to do anything or go out, but now, everything has changed, everything that I preach, I am taking my own advice, because everyone, lets face it, Life is too short to be depressed all the time, life is meant to be lived being happy, optimistic, thinking about good things, to be positive and take things out of our lives that are unnecessary and work on what is important. I cannot be thankful enough for each passing day. Valuable life lessons learned and doing things that will help me and my life is something that is very important.

Learning how to prioritize life and making room for important people and things in your life is crucial and imperative. Without people this world will not turn, it’s like for example, if this world did not have trees and important greenery, this world would be left without oxygen and without oxygen, we cannot function and it is important in our lives, so oxygen is happiness, positivity and being optimistic. Use those Oxygen’s to better your life and to stop depression and stress at its tracks. It is all up to you, but before your oxygen runs out, have a happy life and stop being negative. It is not good for you at all. Live, Laugh, Love, Dance, and be who you are. All the best.

How Blogging Has Taught Me So Much

In My Life blogging has become one of the most important aspects in my life to share with the world and to share with people my experiences, my life, and everything that I stand for. Blogging has taught me so much about how to express myself. I love writing and throwing out my feelings and what I want to say about certain things in life and among everything else. If there is something in this life, I really enjoy, its blogging. I love sharing and reading other peoples blogs, I love learning and doing new things all the time. Its my passion to write and its my passion to get out there and be known and show who I am to the world. I am sure a lot of us bloggers stand for similar things and we all want to be out there. It is important to express yourself and to never be afraid to write what you feel about a certain thing. Blogging is an incredible tool and now everyone searches for so many things and subjects about life and about issues of today’s society and I have noticed that a lot of people search for a lot of it. My stats are an example for that with search terms on important issues in life and people want answers, and hopefully they find what they are looking for. It makes me happy to know that people search for incredible things and find answers to their questions.

When you blog and when you start up something as fabulous as this, you should never stop and you should never run out of ideas. always ask people around you, always ask and search for topics to write about. Although it could have been discussed a lot of times, but when you put it in your own words and when you put it out there, its something so incredible. Try to write everyday, try to get on out there and discuss many topics. You will how incredible your traffic will become on your blog and the tags are super important and people will locate tags a lot and that will pinpoint you and your blog. I do not rest until I have finished writing and finished with writing for my daily blog. Its something that I have vowed to do, and I will not give up. I have recipes, I have talked about many issues. I am so proud of myself, I feel incredibly amazing and feel so great when I do blog. I want to make as much of a difference in the world as possible and I want to get my messages out to so many people around the world who need it and who need a boost in life. So many people are going through depression, and so many terrible things, I want to be the one to shine light on them because they truly need to hear positive encouragement and they need people around them to comfort them.

with out words and with our blogs, and when people want to search for positivity, optimism and for happy things, its such a powerful tool. Blogging, Social Networking, Media and everything has become so powerful. Blogging especially. Its become so advanced, so many millions of people in the world blog and its such a great thing. I am so committed and so determined to change the world, to make the world a happier place. I want my words and my blogs to empower and to keep people going all the time.
