I Have Enduring Optimism?

Sometimes, a name is a very powerful thing. Some people have a name they can try to live up to. Some people’s names mean hope. Love. Prosperity. Courage. Heroic. Funny.

My name is Dante, and it means “enduring”.

What does enduring mean? Well, readers of this blog know I consult Merriam-Webster for my definitions so here we go. Enduring means: lasting, durable.

When you consider the name of the blog, Dante’s Optimism, it could also be seen as “Enduring Optimism”. Now, this could be interpreted in a couple of ways:

Dante’s Opinion: Should I Tell My Girlfriend to Get A Boob Job?


Should i tell me girlfriend to get a boob job? me girlfriend has the itty bitties and i’m a big boob kinda guy in fact it’s my biggest turn on to see a big set of jugs. so as u can tell i’m not that attractd to me girlfriend because of this.

First of all, we need to talk about the grammar. Oy!

I warn my sisters of people like you. I strive to make sure I personally don’t reach this mindset.

The problem here is not your girlfriend’s boobs. The problem is that you’re not attracted to a person. A nasty soul with big boobs is better than someone with great character and…not so big boobs? That’s what it sounds like to me. You want plastic? I think I’ll keep the girl as real as possible. I want her as she is. If I don’t like what I see, let me find it. Let her be her.

I have five sisters, one of them early teens, one late teens, and two early twenties. I can’t imagine how they would feel if some dude that they liked decided their boobs were too small. The self esteemed destroyed…sigh…would be hard to repair.

But, oops, let me get to your question, bro. No, you should not tell her to do that. You should not tell her to do anything with HER body. I’ll take a seat now.

Dante’s Opinion: Pick a career that you love or that pays more?


I am going to start school next month and I am stuck between wanted be be a professorial animal groomer and eventually start my own business (Thats what I really want to do) But my husband doesn’t like that at all, he is pushing me to do medical transcription so I can work from home and be home with our son and get paid more. He does have a point, but I know I wouldn’t be happy doing it. Am I selfish for wanting to pick the least paying job?

There are sides to this.

People get a job for the money, but can end up unhappy. Depression in the workplace is very real. To be stressed doing a job you don’t care about vs what you love doing…at least enjoy the work, ya know?

Then again, if the job isn’t all that well paying, you may have to consider letting go of that love or find another one.

Concerning your specific situation, from what I can tell, work from home jobs don’t really work out. That’s not to say it can’t this time, but I wouldn’t bank on it.

People love their pets. Animals are big. Starting your own business is something I would go after. Just make sure you take plenty of business courses along the way. Keep an eye out for expanding into all things animal to broaden your reach.

As for the general debate of doing what you love, or doing what pays more, I’ll probably share in another post. Maybe.

  5. Eh…I mean, it’s alright.
  6. Stop.
  7. Please stop.
  8. I…I don’t know how to say that.
  9. This sounds like a food product.

Overall, this list is uh…

Options 1-3 seem like very good names. Five is cool too. But 6-9 is a mess.
