What Do I Think About Women with Pixie Crown

I admire women who wear a pixie crown. I would want one for myself, and I can definitely flaunt that, but I can’t for some important reasons. I see such females as the confident and determined ones, especially those in their late twenties and early thirties.

Most of them are successful, at least those that I know of. And I hope to be like them someday. They are the women who are successful in every aspect of their lives. Those who are able to maintain the balance between their career and social life. Right now, I am having a hard time doing that. Maybe girls just simply get better as they age.

EV (How to Make All Decisions)

On Tynan

I've been wanting to write this post for a long time, because it's the kind of post that will allow me to write more posts, linking this one as background. Because it's so important, I've been waiting for the right time to write it. Sometime like now, when I'm fed, tea-caffeinated, motivated, and have a few hours with no anticipated distractions.

Expected Value, or EV, is the fundamental building block of decision-making. If you don't understand it, whether by name or not, you are not making optimal decisions. If you do understand it, at least you stand a chance.

EV is a term that describes the mathematically predicted outcome of an action. The EV of you finding a dollar on the ground is one dollar. Whenever you find a dollar on the ground, you gain one dollar, so that's the value of that event.

Let's say that you and I are going to flip a coin. If it's heads, nothing happens. If it's tails, you give me a dollar. The expected value for you is negative fifty cents because half the time nothing will happen, and half the time you'll lose a dollar.
