The Ideal 21st Birthday Present

This coming September is my boyfriend’s 21st birthday. We’ve been together for 3 years and we both feel quite strongly about each other. I finished university this year and David finishes next year. Which is when we plan on working and travelling around South America. We’re both fairly adventurous types and have been on various charity and learning travels throughout our lives. For our South America trip he’s even taken Spanish as an additional module so he feels better prepared for our travel.

He’s such an accomplished person that I struggled to think what I could get him as a present for the big 2 1. Which was when the idea hit me. A watch! Simple, functional, stylish and most importantly I knew he was thinking of getting one after he’d lost his grandfather’s watch. I knew it wasn’t possible to replace it and besides I wanted to create my own memories with my present which was how I ended up looking at a range of Citizen, Rotary, Guess and Ice Watches. All of which looked incredibly impressive, but I felt it had to best suit David.

In the end I went with my gut, the watch that I thought had the most features that ticked off all the uses David would need from a watch. It even told the time!

I chose a Citizen’s Calibre 2100 Chronograph Eco Drive Watch. Quite a mouthful that packs an equal punch. It’s a stainless steel watch that’s water resistant, ideal for when he decides to go snorkelling or diving off Chile. It also comes with a 5 year guarantee that with Jim, I know would come in handy. The watch itself is perfect for Jim as it is multi purpose with several sub dials that can measure time in different ways including the basic stopwatch.

I think personally the best thing about it is that it looks timeless and could easily take him from day to night.


I can’t wait to give David his 21st birthday present. I know that he will be thrilled with his Citizen Watch and all the additional ‘toys’ within it. It’s the perfect gift as he turns 21 and it’s the perfect gift for when he’s travelling. If not to tell the time then at the very least to remember me by!

Presenting Oneself Through the Internet

Presenting oneself through the internet requires skills in coming out effectively in getting oneself into an online relationship. The presentation has to hit the target the first time the person on the other end goes over one’s profile registered on the social network.

The profile has to catch the reader’s attention. The profile cannot be written in a standard, common and boring way. You have to create a brand to yourself. Gone were the days when you can safely say, “you enjoy viewing films and short stroll at the park.”

It may be true, but it may not also be remembered by the reader. There is a need to search for a way to say “I enjoy films” that will put the writer in the readers favour.

People reading the profile may find you an interesting person who knows how to present oneself. Or, the reader may find you boring.

Try to put more information. Write about work, interest, authors, music and other stuff that can break the ice between the reader and you.

It would become easier to start conversation between the reader and you when they come to read the entertainingly informative profile. Make sure the facts include general information only, not the details such as the telephone number to one’s residence.

Remember to include some pictures that project a good image of you. As the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” A badly taken picture of you will project you as someone tasteless. The secret is that you would want a decent person to appreciate the picture you post.

A picture, showing you about to jump from a bridge, while you are tied to one end of the rope, would certainly gather more people to see than one where you are just standing straight and facing the camera. Good hunting!
