My darling Mistress.
I was not able to leave home. My eldest son had a chess tournament, and I just need to attend. Oh, men! You should have seen how clever his moves were. He was able to defeat all seven contenders. I was truly impressed. I was not even aware he plays chess. Now I know.
Then my son thought of this glamping idea. Glamping is when you go camping but need not bring food or set up a tent and even make fire. Everything you need is readily available as the property owner or organizer provides them for you. There is even a bathroom nearby. Thus you need not dig for big holes. By the way, glamping is short for glamorous camping. You should try it. I promise I will let you experience it, babe. How about on your birthday?
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
– Oscar Wilde, Irish playwright, novelist, essayist, and poet
Plagiarism, though, is not flattery. The dictionary defines plagiarism as the practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own. Plagiarism is not merely imitation. It is copying and owning the work as his own. There are instances that a writer felt pleased as someone copied his style or took him as a model. But copying so many words from a composition that it makes up the majority of the plagiarist’s work – and worse, without giving credit – is no longer flattery. It is offensive.
Which leads PSST.Ph to ponder on the reasons that pushes a person to plagiarize.
I got your letter. I did not have plans answering you. However, the sudden wonderful turn of events pushed me to write you back. I am just like any happy wife who can’t contain her happiness.
I do not know if my dear husband has already relayed the message to you. Probably not. Just this morning, in his rush to the office, he forgot his mobile phone. How can he call or text you, unless he has another phone he keeps from me.
Anyway, I got and read your text messages. How demanding can you be! You’re nagging my husband for an explanation why he didn’t make it last February 13. Also, how can you be so insistent on leaving 17 missed calls in less than an hour? I thought nagging is part of a wife’s play? Then how funny you suddenly reverted and became the most forgiving and understanding a mistress. I just cannot fathom how my husband tolerates such childish acts.
Millennials, we dare ask you, is PO and OPO dead?
We are now living in a world of the Millennials. Millennials are said to be the most liberal generation by far. They act, speak, and think based on their instincts, impulses, and pleasures. Their open-mindedness stems from their evident characteristic – they are spirited.
We cannot blame them. Their era is the age of technology which continues to reinvent and change so often. Whereas, the world’s political situation and other aspects of life we lamented for years seem to be stuck and hopeless.
Millennials are said to be outward thinking and value fame, money, and career. They are confident, upbeat, and enjoy self-expression. Pondering on their intrinsic value – which to older ones lies at the heart of ethics – is given less emphasis.
Perhaps that leads to the question, is PO and OPO dead? We seldom hear the millennials utter these words which the older generation value the most. Or are others just too clingy to tradition and are sincerely respectful that they notice the absence of PO and OPO from the youth?
Are men really from Mars? Notable American author John Gray wrote the infamous “Men are from Mars, Women Are from Venus.” Since then, the book has become a part of the popular culture and even sort of a Bible for women who want to understand the opposite sex. For Gray, it became the core of his succeeding writings. Records showed the book has sold more than 50 million copies and was considered the bestselling American nonfiction book of the 1990s. Gray wrote “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” in 1992.
Gray’s aim to publish this mega-best-selling book was to show the differences between the sexes. He is, after all, a relationship counselor. He based his writings on the 25,000 participants he directly counseled. He therefore wrote and shared practical advice that proved to have helped his clients solve their gender differences. From the perspective of the couples interviewed for the book, Gray’s advice facilitated improvement in their relationship. It was for this reason that the book was regarded as the ultimate guide to decoding the opposite sex’s brain.

Your son allegedly bullied someone at school. The school principal came between and settled the issue. Appropriate disciplinary actions were taken into account. As a parent, you talked to your child and came to an agreement that nothing similar to that must happen again. Now, everything seemed resolved. Then you got non-stop messages from the parent of the supposedly aggrieved party. The worst part, he went to the school and intimidated your kid.
And you thought everything was put to rest and it’s time to move on. The parent is now bullying you and your boy.
Parents always want a safe and secured learning environment for their kids. Any news about bullying may cause them to react positively or otherwise. As others may encourage their children to avoid the classmate, some parents opt to fight their school kids’ battle. Instead of giving the children the chance to work things out for themselves, they wage war against the other kid and even with his parents. Even after the issue has been settled already, or so you thought.
