    I've heared that people at certain age or stage of life would change the value that they had kept before, especially the way they look for their partner. For those who have already stepped into the real society, is it true that inner capabity wins outer elements, for example, the ability of earning money wins appearance, maturity wins innocence?

    I've asked many people, most of their answers are yes, especially girls woud say so. They think once stepping into the real world, then they would pay less attention on outer elements than inner capabilty. Ugh, if this saying was true, then I have to say Realist wins everything! I had better be a realist instead of a dreamer.

    Life is about experiences, you would never be where you are now without having ambitions to change your lifestyle/circumstance whether it is to graduate and get a job, leave an abusive relationship or be a hot dog eating world champion. Most people will come to a point in their lives that changes the way they view society, the world and the way it operates, some question it earlier than others if at all and some question it more than others. Failing and trying again is more important than getting it right the first time.

    In what respect does a realist win everything? It depends on your own interpretation on what everything means to you. If it involves making money, is it better to work 12 hours 7 days a week than a 9-5 job and buying a lotto ticket every week to meet your goal?

    It's all relative to the individual. If you want to know what the 'real world' is like, go and experience something, anything, instead of analyzing it. A better saying would be, it's not the destination but the journey.
