Christmas is among the biggest holiday, but the birth of Christ isn’t the only cause we celebrate. Even the minute affairs have their own days:

January. For the first month, we have the annoying opposite day and couple that with nothing day, we should have high dose of playfulness or tolerance. Our feet was taken into focus alongside blaming someone else for starting a rumor.

Blame someone else day – 13th (or first Friday the 13th day of the year)
Nothing day – 16th
Measure your feet day – 23rd
Opposite day – 25th
 

February. If you’re dying to change your name, this is good; but if you love your name already, you’ll have to change it for a day. You could cry any day on a spilled milk but not on the 11th.

Read in the bathtub day – 9th
Don’t cry over spilled milk day – 11th
Get a different name day – 13th
Wear red day – 25th
 

March. Fantastic month. There’s a day of awesomeness, which I celebrate everyday, be nasty day and oh, waffle day! We better get a great haircut because haircut appreciation day is coming. And there’s Bunsen burner day. Wait, what is a Bunsen burner again?

Be nasty day – 8th
Day of awesomeness – 10th
Waffle day – 25th
Hairstyle appreciation day – 30th
Bunsen burner day – 31st
 

April. Start the month fooling and end it with honesty (handle both with caution). Stop the housework and look at the sky. High five with a friend after picking your nose; then memorize the meaning of DNA. This is April.

April fool’s day – 1st
No housework day – 7th
Look up at the sky day – 14th
High five day – 19th
DNA day – 20th
International nose picking day – 23rd
Honesty day – 30th
 

May. I think people are hungriest at this month. They invented the no diet day, which you would eat without any regard. Count a few days then there’s eat what you want day, pick strawberries day and even chicken dancing day – it can be any type of dance but it has to be chicken. Star Wars day is May the 4th, get it?

Star Wars day – 4th
No diet day – 6th
Eat what you want day – 11th
Dance like a chicken day – 14th
Pick strawberries day – 20th
 

June. I get to practice my acting skills by getting panicked exaggeratedly on seeing the news. One question, why the hell would you take your dog to your work? Veterinarians, don’t answer.

Dare day – 1st
Hug holiday – 11th
International panic day – 18th
Take your dog to work day – 23rd
 

July. You think the geeks would let the awesome to have a day on their own? They’ve got their day too. There’s a day for getting out of the doghouse, which you should have not waited for this day to come out if you entered it. Sorry bee sting victims, you can’t avenge and step on a bee on the 10th. Maybe step on bees?

Stay out of the sun day – 3rd
Compliment your mirror day – 3rd
Don’t step on a bee day – 10th
Embrace your geekness day – 13th
Get out of the doghouse day – 16th
 

August. Woohoooo! Bad poetry day – I’ve got an excuse. Wiggle thy toes, thou breath today, you shall groom, if you’re a dude. That bad, eh?

Fresh breath day – 6th
Wiggle your toes day – 6th
Men’s grooming day – 17th
Bad poetry day – 18th
 

September. Video games day is the most important day on any month. Don’t ask why, it’s not stupid.

Be late for something day – 5th
Video games day – 12th
Talk like a pirate day – 19th
Ask a stupid question day – 28th

October. It’s possible for gay people to come out many times this month. They face the fear of coming out on 9th, coming out day on 11th, and shout out their coming out in caps lock on 22nd.

Face your fears day – 9th
Coming out day – 11th
Caps lock day – 22nd
Increase your psychic powers day – 31st
 

November. If there’s a day dedicated for cleaning refrigerators, does that mean I can do it once a year?

False confession day – 21st
Clean your refrigerator day – 15th
Beautiful day – 20th
 

December. I’m interested, how does a bathtub party work? I guess being nice starts on the 4th, it’s Santa’s list day.

Eat a red apple day – 1st
Santa’s list day – 4th
Bathtub party day – 5th
 

It may be silly to form holidays for appreciating the air conditioners or looking at the sky, especially when holidays are widely celebrated for the esteemed dates in history. I think this is a great, great thing to remind us that it doesn’t have to be a huge deal for us to celebrate. It would add an exciting spice to life if we just abandon everything and take the moment to celebrate the little things – it matters!

I’d like to have an act like drunk day. What weird and wacky things/situations you’d like to be a holiday?

An airline is accused of hacking a person’s email.

Airplanes are the safest mode of transportation. In 2002, there were 6,316,000 car accidents in US alone, compare that to 339 near collisions between airlines. The safest seat you’ll be was in the back of the plane, having 40% more survival rate in case something unwelcome happened (based on Popular Mechanic’s study of plane crashes since 1971). That’s the dilemma, comfort was in the front, safety was in the back, where would you be?

AskMen.com named Iran Airlines, China Airlines, and Cubana Airlines as the most dangerous airlines in the world. Iran Airlines’s had three accidents in the last 10 years and its safety issues earned a banned status from European Union. China has high number of casualties, the latest it had was in 2002 where 225 lives were lost. Cubana Airlines has the lowest success flights between accidents.

The approximate starting salary of a pilot was $18,000 a year. A janitor’s salary was $21,000 while a New York taxi cab’s salary was $22,000. To get proper training, a pilot aspirant pays $40,000 to $50,000 in average and needs to pass three licenses. Captains earn gigantic if he had miraculous hours of flight.

Dr. Davis Stork said that the filth on airplanes are hazardous to health. Blankets and pillows are unwashed, tray tables are unsanitary and floors are soiled. Try not to touch anything or have a hand wash for your aid.

Kate Hanni sued Delta Air line Inc., accusing the company hacked emails from her computer. She is associated with FlightsRights.org where passengers voice out about the service of the airline. Whether it’s true or not, a company could go to the extreme to save their face, even to the point of privacy breach.

Order canned or bottled refreshments. EPA testing confirmed 13% of the tested aircraft contained coliform bacteria in their drinking water. The bacteria is found in the fecal matter.

The sky is not entirely clear space – birds can fly too! US Air Force reported 5,000 bird strikes in 2007 due to collision with aircrafts. Other than that, no one’s tracking how many birds were sacrificed for your flight.

Acronyms made our life’s verbal aspect easier, but you’ll frown at this list!

Using Acronyms, internet and text messaging acronyms, teenage and organizational acronym

Using Acronyms. Photo from osakabentures.com

I’m thankful for the invention of it. I can breath smoothly while talking because there’s no need for me to say ‘National Aeronautics and Space Administration’; I’ll just mouth NASA. It’s more convenient and safe too, especially when in conversation about a person in the vicinity. It would mean no harm if I say TBT than ‘That Bastard There’ or ‘TIIC’ than ‘Those Idiots in Charge’.

I could use acronyms to score a girl by pulling out pawns like HOLLAND, which meant ‘Hope Our Love Lasts And Never Dies’ – touchdown! Asia will do fine as well, like INDIA, which meant ‘I Nearly Died In Adoration’; or I could jump in Africa, like EGYPT, which meant ‘Everything’s Great, You Pretty Thing!’. Okay, let’s stop this continental atrocity.

FBI, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, always appear to me as a cool word. YOLO is nice too, ‘You Only Live Once’. But regardless of the meaning of an acronym, some of it just sound damn great and appropriate, but not the list below. I scraped the internet for the worst acronyms ever created. Here they are:

Acronym: ASOL
Meaning: The American Symphony Orchestras League
Side comment: It’s just that, it sounds like you know what hole.

Acronym: STUPID
Meaning: St. Thomas University of Public International Diplomacy
Side comment: I feel so sorry for the university, such an irony to be called stupid.

Acronym: MANPADS
Meaning: Man-portable air-defense systems
Side comment: This is effin’ hilarious!

Acronym: ASS
Meaning: American Society of Scotts
Side comment: I imagined it how the man would say “Hi, I’m the president of ASS”.

Acronym: PUMCODOXPURSACOMLOPOLAR
Meaning: Pulse Modulated Coherent Doppler-Effect X-Band Pulse-Repetition Synthetic-Array Pulse Compression Side Lobe Planar Array
Side comment: If I ever need to use this in a sentence (don’t think it’ll happen), I’ll refer you as ‘that thingy’.

Those are my favorites. You could check out more in Beg to Differ’s NOMO: The 25 worst acronyms in the world and in Linkedin’s discussion Worst acronym for an organization name?

Travelling is maximizing what is around your life. Go, do it! And participate, take photos, talk to locals. Get lost and see the real details of the place. Drop your job, your worries, your judgment. Start with zero feeling, and fill it with novelty, pleasure, and all-new experiences.

Complete the chapter, and with excitement, tell the story to friends, family, whoever. Incite their spirits. And then do it again, do more, go more to where you haven’t traveled before.
