Your Sleeping Position, Your Personality

If you want to know someone’s true personality, then try to know the way he/she sleeps.

Scientists believe the position in which a person goes to sleep provides an important clue about the kind of person they are.

Professor Chris Idzikowski, director of the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, has analysed six common sleeping positions – and found that each is linked to a particular personality type.

“We are all aware of our body language when we are awake but this is the first time we have been able to see what our subconscious posture says about us”.

“What’s interesting is that the profile behind the posture is often very different from what we would expect.”

The 6 positions studied by Professor Idzikowski:

• The Foetus: Those who curl up in the foetus position are described as tough on the outside but sensitive at heart. They may be shy when they first meet somebody, but soon relax. This is the most common sleeping position, adopted by 41% of the 1,000 people who took part in the survey. More than twice as many women as men tend to adopt this position.

• Log (15%): Lying on your side with both arms down by your side. These sleepers are easy going, social people who like being part of the in-crowd, and who are trusting of strangers. However, they may be gullible.

• The Yearner (13%): People who sleep on their side with both arms out in front are said to have an open nature, but can be suspicious, cynical. They are slow to make up their minds, but once they have taken a decision, they are unlikely ever to change it.

• Soldier (8%): Lying on your back with both arms pinned to your sides. People who sleep in this position are generally quiet and reserved. They don’t like a fuss, but set themselves and others high standards.

• Freefall (7%): Lying on your front with your hands around the pillow, and your head turned to one side. Often gregarious and brash people, but can be nervy and thin-skinned underneath, and don’t like criticism, or extreme situations.

• Starfish (5%): Lying on your back with both arms up around the pillow. These sleepers make good friends because they are always ready to listen to others, and offer help when needed. They generally don’t like to be the centre of attention.

The remainder of those in the poll said the position they fell asleep varied or did not know.

Professor Idzikowski also examined the effects of various sleeping positions on health. He concluded that the freefall position was good for digestion, while the starfish and soldier positions were more likely to lead to snoring and a bad night’s sleep.

Professor Idzikowski said: “Lying down flat means that stomach contents can more readily be worked back up into the mouth, while those who lie on their back may end up snoring and breathing less well during the night.

Both these postures may not necessarily awaken the sleeper but could cause a less refreshing night’s sleep.”

The research also found that most people are unlikely to change their sleeping position. Just 5% said they sleep in a different position every night.

Professor Idzikowski also found that one arm or leg sticking out of the duvet is Britain’s most common position, followed by both feet poking out the end.

One in ten people like to cover themselves entirely with the duvet.




A Happy Experience in Asilo de San Vicente de Paul

Last Sunday, December 9, 2007, my clan, CTU Inter-Active and other friends, held our outreach activity in Asilo de San Vicente de Paul orphanage. For me, it was one of the happiest thing I’ve ever experienced. Christmas is really different this year. We were very touch when the children sang and danced for us. I really enjoyed the time we spend there! I did see the happiness in the children’s eyes! Congrats to all of us for a successful activity!

Check out the pictures:

JASON CASTRO: “I forgot the lyrics … “

The Top 4 American Idol Season 7 finalists performed the stage with the rock and roll theme. I did enjoy watching them. Of course, David Archuleta amazed the judges again! I really like seeing his reactions every time the judges have their final say in his performance. He humbly accepts everything: compliments and criticisms. With the attitude and talent, he can go far and be the next American Idol for sure!

Syesha Mercado’s performance was great! She got so emotional with the judges’ reactions. I’m hoping that she can make it to the Top3. Go Syesha!

Watch this:

Of the 4 finalists, I didn’t like Jason Castro’s performance. He even forgot the lyrics! OMG (Oh-My-God)! He should have not been included in the Top 4! Poor JCastro … Let’s see if your charm can save you now.

The Ex Commandments and Post Break-up Stories

I’ve finished reading a book entitled “The Ex Commandments and Post Break-up Stories” written by Carmelle Hyacinth Penetrante. I did enjoy reading it because all girls would really relate with the stories. What caught my attention in the book is The Ex Commandments. These are commandments that girls should not do after break-ups. We know that when girls experience break ups, it seems like their world will shatter down on them. As if they’re gonna die especially if they really love the guy. Right? I’ll share to you my points of view, here are the said commandments:

1. Thou shalt feel the pain by wallowing in post-break up depression and by being suicidal for a week.

The moment your partner said, “I’m sorry…I don’t love you anymore”, you’ll feel like it’s the end of your world because he left you. It’s normal for a girl who has done everything for someone she loves. It reminds me of Craig David’s song, Don’t Love You No More that goes like this:

Rain outside my window pouring down
What now, your gone, my fault, I’m sorry
Feeling like a fool cause I let you down
Now it’s, too late, to turn it around
I’m sorry for the tears I made you cry
I guess this time it really is goodbye
You made it clear when you said
I just don’t love you no more

After break up, you don’t have the energy to go out of the house. You just stay in your bed with boxes of Kleenex. You’re really mad that you made yourself into a demon throwing pieces of furniture, stuffed toys and CDs everywhere. Your room is totally messed up! You even think of committing suicide! What for? Hey girl, move on! Do you really think that he is worth dying for?

2. Thou shalt throw away all photographs, anniversary gifts, movie premiere tickets, all relationship-attuned artifacts.

Yes, your room is a mess! You’re very mad to him leaving you after years of being together. You just want destroy all your photo albums with memories of you with him, pictures with beautiful places and beautiful memories must be burned. Then, you saw all the gifts that you must get rid of – the stuffed toy you named after him, the mugs you don’t want to use because of its sentimental value.

3. Thou shalt erase him from your world – the existentialist game or more popularly, DENIAL.

This is the time that friends will ask you about the break-up. All you can say:

“Huh? What relationship? I don’t know anyone named ____.”

Suddenly, you just consider him as someone not existing in this world. Bitter huh? <!–[if gte vml 1]&gt; &lt;![endif]–><!–[if !vml]–><!–[endif]–>

4. Thou shalt nurse your ego. Thou shalt buy things and splurge like crazy. Thou shalt not mind if Mango is not on sale dost deserve it.

As far as you can remember, the last time you spent like there was no tomorrow was when you bought him a gift for his birthday. Forget about it…This time, it’s all about you. You considered shopping malls as your haven, a place to recuperate your bleeding heart. You buy new wardrobes for yourself. The last time was just because you wanted to look good for him. You buy all the things you want in the boutiques and treat yourself with a shopping galore just to forget the pain.

5. Thou shalt arrange a meeting with your coven support group. Thou shalt plot and scheme, and stuff yourself with goodies.

Always remember that your friends are always there for you. During break ups like this, you’ll hear them say:

“He was so not for you, honey.”

You can share with them all the tears and pain you feel and may agree to you that MEN are the scum of the earth. That’s what friends are for…but you should know that you may also have a friend who doesn’t share your man troubles because she has a blooming love life. Wait till her boyfriend left her… that’s a joke. Still you wouldn’t want that to happen to her because it’s really a painful experience.

6. Thou shalt go on a beach vacation. Thou shalt indulge in meaningless summer flings, fully aware of their meaninglessness.

After weeks of crying, you decided to the beach to have fun and be drunk. This might help you forget him. You also consider getting yourself a man? Why not? But that would really make you trouble. Okay, the beach is a beautiful place with beautiful people. You bump into this handsome guy, get along with each other well, enjoy the night, get drunk… the bad thing is you end up throwing up everything you drink! What a shame?! <!–[if gte vml 1]&gt; &lt;![endif]–><!–[if !vml]–><!–[endif]–>

7. Thou shalt secretly sign his name up and pass his contact numbers around gay dating websites.

You’re too mad at him to the point of giving away his contacts to anyone…even to gay dating websites. You’ll be happy to know that he get irritated if he received texts or calls from gay strangers. He deserved that! No, don’t be mean.

8. Thou shalt stave the encroaching darkness back, and stay – even remotely something other than a complete mess. Thou shalt endure.

Forget single-cursedness anymore, move on. Accept suitors and date invitations. Be positive that there’ll be another man that will make you happy again. The funny thing… you have a date to someone you’re attracted to…The night is so romantic, the stars are so bright. You both have interesting chit chats. You think: “This is it!” … but you felt numb after he confessed to you that he’s gay. Don’t be sad girl, there’s so many fish in the ocean. There are still handsome men who will swift you off your feet but be careful with handsome guys…a lot of them belong to the gay world. <!–[if gte vml 1]&gt; &lt;![endif]–><!–[if !vml]–><!–[endif]–>

9. Thou shalt flirt with thou ex’s best friend and thus put throw the proverbial monkey wrench in their friendship.

Don’t drool over your ex’s best friend. You don’t have to give meanings to all his hidden implications of his consoling phone calls saying he’s really sorry that his friend was so stupid to let you go. He’s just being nice to make you feel better. Remember: They’re friends! You might end up dumped also.

10. If all else fails, thou shalt burn his F150.

Don’t think of burning his F150 or any car that he goes crazy for just to make you feel even with him. You might do the worst because you’re deeply hurt and mad with what he did for you but will you be really be happy? I don’t think so… You might end up in jail for doing that. You may see his car burning into pieces but the pain is still there. You just have to move on and accept anything that happens between you and him. Time heals wounds. In time, you’ll forget him. In time, you’ll meet the man of your dreams that you deserve.

Cheer up! <!–[if gte vml 1]&gt; &lt;![endif]–><!–[if !vml]–><!–[endif]–>

Bye Bye Brooke White! :(

I’ve been watching American Idol every week. Brooke White was eliminated last week. Too sad… Jason Castro should be the one eliminated but he really has the charm making people to vote for him and make him stay in the show. I like Brooke White because of her simple, husky and appealing voice. She really took the elimination badly . Watch this:

Bye bye Brooke White! 😦
