http://Successful Student A resource for students to excel.
The following is an excerpt from: Successful Student
An education should involve learning life skills that a person will carry with them after college in order to navigate relationships and careers and be a well-rounded, successful person. This article has compiled 20 life skills not taught in school, which are valuable in life in general. Though high school and college is excellent in teaching many valuable skills, our current academic curriculum doesn’t teach many aspects necessary to succeeding and thriving in life in general, such as financial responsibilities and investments, how to think logically–retaining information and not merely temporarily memorizing information, and how to apply such abilities to real-world scenarios which are bound to occur.

You would not believe how many “sure things” and “done deals” I’ve had fall apart at the last minute. I’ve been passed over for jobs and promotions I should have gotten so many times it isn’t funny. And the way people keep dangling carrots in front of my eyes, you’d think I was a hungry rabbit.
Despite all that, I don’t think I’ve ever been screwed. It’s all part of the ecosystem known as big business. It comes with the territory. If you’re going to get your feelings hurt, throw a fit, or whine about the injustice of it all, don’t even waste your time trying to make it. You probably won’t.
Truth is, the business world is risky business. It isn’t for the thin-skinned, the weak-minded or the faint of heart. And if you fit one of those colorful descriptors, sooner or later, you’re probably going to get weeded out of the entrepreneurial gene pool.

This is an excerpt from: When Single Men Have Affairs With Married Women

Why do some single men have affairs with married women?
No Strings Attached Sex/It’s Easier. Unlike most women, single men often love having access to someone who is passionate, sexual and really wants nothing more from them. On a purely physical level, most men are going to enjoy their affairs with married women. You’re bringing out her inner tigress. You’re unlocking a woman full of sexual desire who is not getting her needs met at home, so of course the one night (or many nights) of sex is going to be unbelievably great. There are no strings attached to it, either, so it’s just fantastic sex with seemingly no consequences. This to me is the most obvious reason. Men would love to have a lover who asks almost nothing of them. The married woman won’t expect presents or moan if he forgets to phone her. Anything goes. Anything happens. Nothing is forever. You don’t need to call her. You don’t need to keep in touch. You don’t need to meet the parents and you won’t miss a single bowling night out with your buddies. No strings attached.And it’s easy, usually passionate, sex on tap!
