Voice your thoughts

The pass week was really surprising for me. I picked up a few ideas in books that I thought would be good addition to the work place where i worked. It’s been in my head for a while and this week I decided to voice them into life. So far, I just got positive comments for them and it will soon be implemented.

I experienced first hand what voicing your thoughts can do. If there’s things that you would like to change, the first thing would be to talk about it. I didn’t do it for money nor fame, just to make the work place a bit better. I did get a reward out of it, a sense of accomplishment and the desire to voice other ideas.

Being in a relationship

Relationship, in my opinion, is the craziest experience out there. It’s an emotional roller coaster. I think the only way to have a successful at it is by having the ability to see things from the other person’s point of you.

Some say that sacrifice is the most important thing in a relationship. It is very important to be willing to sacrifice some things but how are you going to figure out what to sacrifice if you can’t see things from the other person’s view point?

Valentines Day is Important

Valentines day is a big day for me. I remember a long time ago where it didn’t really matter, but a special someone of the time reminded me of the importance of having such a day.

Sometimes, love get lost in the busyness of life and it’s important to have days dedicated to the love ones. Valentines day isn’t the only day where it should happen, it’s just a reminder, to the world, that it needs to happen.

This year, I’m thankful for having to share this day with my amazing woman, Chantal Leclair. I may have weird ways to show my love to you but it’s love none the less. I’m anxious to see what life as prepared for us. I love you :)

God and Empirical Science*

Science** was created by man to better understand the work of God and not as an attempt to prove that he doesn’t exist. It doesn’t prove that there’s no god, it simply help us better understand his work.

The popular belief is that science and religion are opposite while in-fact they’re interconnected. It’s in our nature to seek to understand and come up to conclusion based on facts***.
A better understanding of life doesn’t prove that there’s no God.

Have you ever wondered why Ice float? It’s a solid that’s heavier than water and yet it floats. The observation has shown that the molecules, in a block of ice, are set up in a way that it floats (I’m no scientist, for more details:

One could say “here are the facts” and can now close the subject.

What would happen if one of those molecules was different and ice would sink? There would be little to no life in our water because the ice would crush everything every Winter.
A simple difference in a molecule could have made a difference on how it acts. Some say “that’s just how it is” while other believe that it was carefully planed by God.

There’s many categories of science. Empirical Science, like the above example, isn’t a category that claims, or try to prove, that there’s no god. They just do observations that anyone can reproduce in the same conditions.

Many, who says that they rather believe in science rather than religion, didn’t put any time into researching anything about science and just say so because someone else said something about it.
When it comes to Faith, it’s important to know why you believe what you believe and do research to come up with your own conclusions. All sides needs to be considered.

Coming soon... God and Historical Science - The Science that “proved” there’s no God.

Empirical Science*: Must be based on observable phenomena and capable of being tested for its validity by other researchers working under the same conditions (Source:

Science**: Systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation. (Source:

Facts***: Knowledge or information based on real occurrences. (Source:

Can books fix problems?

What ever you’re going through, there’s bound to be someone else out there who went through it and documented it in some way. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to find that documentation just to see what they did to overcome their problems?

People underestimate the power of books and overestimate the power of their own mind. Nobody was born with all the knowledge in the world. It’s impossible to learn, everything there’s to learn, in one life time but shouldn’t we at least try to learn what ever we can?

I have seen people completely change once they realize that they didn’t have all the knowledge in the world. They became humble, curious and in peace with it. It feels a bit like a much needed slap to the face. It’s a change in mindset.

Self-growth books are, from my experience, the quickest way to achieve this mindset. Why? Reading about mechanic/software, or other subjects, will teach us more on the subject but won’t make us realize how little we know about everything else and it won’t make us more curious to learn about it.

Common sense

Common sense is only common to you and it changes based on life experiences. So why is it called common sense?

What we qualify as common sense is only knowledge that we already know and we assume that other people know as well. It’s based on knowledge gain and, since people can have similar life experiences, it’s qualified as common sense.

It is psychologically proven that we associate ourselves with people that are situated in similar area, in life, than us. Which mean that the group share common senses.

I’m a funny man

Being a funny guy is like being a man … if you have to tell people you are - you’re not.

I recently started reading articles from and I must say I like the approach. What keeps me going back are the jokes found within the articles and the small amount of words to get to the point.

I do both of those things wrong. I think self-growth is the most fun thing out there and that’s how the message should be.

With that, I'll move forward with this to make my blog a more entertaining experience.

The Cubicle Next Door

It’s really hard to believe that society came up to this point. Where you see more your neighbor, in the next cubicle, more than your partner/best friend/family. No wonder that some try to make up for it by doing parties, or spending money in places they shouldn’t, just for the sake of having a few memories with the people they love.

Man, I’ve been blessed with awesome cubicle neighbors. That’s not a problem, it’s just annoying that I didn’t get to choose my friends.

It’s hilarious when one of them decides to quit. Everybody seems to rush to his cubicle and take the “good” mouse or chair. They look like rats who just found a big pile of cheese. I used to be like that until I started to bug managers to get the stuff that I want and I think that’s what everyone should do. Nobody knows that your mouse doesn’t work properly if you didn’t tell them.
