PROBLEM:
- Emafe and I have an irregular sleeping pattern.

But I am still thankful:

  • I am thankful that Emafe adopted my irregular sleeping pattern since she understands me now and I understand her.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the perfect resolution.

  • I am thankful that there are places to eat at night in Taguig so that we don't always go hungry during our irregular sleeping patterns.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the perfect resolution.

  • I am happy to finally be serious about going to bed on time.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the perfect resolution.

  • I am happy that Emafe also has a strong desire to go to bed on time.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the perfect resolution.

  • I am thankful for Emafe's parents who always encourage us to sleep early.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the perfect resolution.

  • I am thankful for the YouTube community since watching ourselves online will remind me to go to bed early.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the perfect resolution.

  • I am thankful to have a house in Davao City to stay in during the night since it keeps us safe while we are at home and awake.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the perfect resolution.

  • I am thankful that the irregular sleeping pattern served a purpose in the past, even if I don't entirely understand what that purpose was.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the perfect resolution.

  • I am thankful to have the health that I do, even in spite of the irregular sleeping pattern I experienced.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the perfect resolution.

  • I am thankful I am capable of changing for the better, even though it can sometimes seem difficult or even impossible.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the perfect resolution.

INVESTING IN DOMAIN NAMES

Domain names are traded like real estate. In fact, 2015 was the biggest bull market for
.COM's in the history of domain names. To get an idea of how much a domain name can sell for, click hereIf you notice, almost all of those are .COMs. 

.COM
is the gold standard for domain names followed by ccTLD's like .UK .DE .PH. There is some value in ccTLDs but it is kind of a new market in terms of domaining. If you want to see how popular .COMs are, click here.


As indicated in the previous link, .COM has over 126 million registrations and the next up is .NET, at 15 million registrations. When I first started investing in .XYZ it only had 1.6 million registrations but it has since beat .INFO and I expect it to break the .COM, .NET and .ORG triopoly sometime this year (currently at 6 million registrations).


BACKGROUND:

I first noticed .XYZ when I heard about Google re-organizing under Alphabet and using the domain name ABC.XYZ (please visit their site). I immediately bought in with a few domain names since I knew how significant it was (Google's decision). In case you didn't know, Google is sometimes the most valuable company in the world. Sometimes it's Apple but they go back and forth depending on their stock price.

So I wanted to find out why Google re-organized under ABC.XYZ (why change at all?) and I eventually discovered that China was threatening to block .COM and all non-approved TLDs (Top Level Domains like .COM and .NET). Read about it here.


China is the most important emerging economy for Internet ventures with 800 million citizens that will soon come online. To put that in perspective, the United States has an Internet population of only 300 million citizens. And t
he.COM boom in 2015 happened because of China, at least for the most part (just like the Bitcoin boom and in some cases, real estate appreciation in the United States). The fact that Google re-organized under ABC.XYZ is definitely enough to raise a few eyebrows.

There is a lot of additional information that I will be publishing. But this was XYZ 101.

Batman v Superman was an interesting movie. I was rooting for Batman in the beginning but I eventually realized that Superman was a more ideal character. 

I WOULD RATHER STRIVE TO BE A SUPERMAN THAN A BATMAN

It might be impossible in this day and age to possess ‘Superhuman’ strength and magic-like abilities, but if we analyze ourselves and society we might be surprised to find that it is definitely possible to be a hero and rescue people, at least on a mental and emotional level. I was rescued myself a few times in life so I can attest to the fact that this is true. But in closing, I would like to state an observation and a belief that I have.

OBSERVATION:

- I think there are too many Batmans (and Batwomans) in American society and not enough Supermans (or Superwomans).

I also believe that the citizens of the United States are on the verge of a mental & emotional Renaissance and that America will lead the world in outlining the long-term benefits of common-sense morality.

Love,

This was a hard last few months. I understand that I neglected you and spent a whole lot of time reading, studying and researching. It was very hard on you. Especially when I spent nearly 12 hours a day on the Internet. But everything happens for a reason and I learned a lot about myself and life in general. I also learned a lot about the two of us as a married couple.

I still have a lot to learn and I still need to grow. I make a lot of good goals for myself but as you know, I take 10 steps forward then 9 steps back. But the important thing is that we are both moving forward, even after I take 9 steps back. 

One of the best things of 2016 (so far) is that it is the year we started seeing reality in a similar way. You started seeing things in a more material sense, and from a practical and realistic standpoint, and I started realizing that 'non-scientific claims' are probably an unproven science (in specific situations). It is also the year I started praying again in a deep way to rewire my brain and reclaim the inner peace (read more) and mental calmness I once had.

This is a letter of appreciation and a letter of love since it is our 6 Year - Wedding Anniversary but it is also a tired and almost exhausted form of success. This is the month we nearly finished the foundation for our future. The year where everything starts to fall into place and life pays us back for all the sacrifices we made (for ourselves, each other and our family). I can also see us giving back to society in positive ways somewhere along the horizon. That makes me happy too.


Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for overcoming the culture shock of marrying someone completely different. And thank you for being a beautiful person that always grows, always learns and improves every year. The two of us will keep growing, building and loving. 

Love you so much and good job. You've done well :)

- Chris

It is January 1st today and I am happy. I am happy because it is 2016, and I am happy about the experiences I had in 2015. I will summarize some of the best things that happened in my life during 2015:

  • March 5th, 2015 was my five-year wedding anniversary and I surprised my wife in a romantic way. I had dreamed about surprising her like that for more than a year, maybe 2 to 3+ years before I did. That was one of my favorite days of all-time. The New Year (2016) wasn’t as fancy but I had a similar feeling, I love you Emafe and I love being in your presence :)

  • October 1st, 2015 was the official launch date of It’s More Fun In Davao City, a project that will eventually include the most comprehensive website about Davao City, Philippines.
Throughout 2015 there have also been many developments in Davao City: Local developers have pledged to build more shopping malls, subdivisions are finally finishing up their amenities and a lot of roads + highways have been widened. This makes me happy, especially since we invested in a small house. Our family as a whole also did very well last year. 

Thank you everyone, I am signing off now, I just wanted to share my happiness. I will read this in the future so I remember 2015 and the start of 2016.
