assessment & shift of plans

When I wrote my goals and aspirations for 2009 here, I was so inspired and determined that I can be able to achieve them. But when problems started to build up early this year, I knew that there are things that I really have to give up.

As early as today, I know it in my heart that I failed.

First, the enrollment period was over and I was not able to enroll for a refresher course. It’s all about the financial crisis that we are currently undertaking because we spent money for our house renovation more than the budget we allotted for it. Good thing we are slowly but surely moving on. And hopefully we can go back to normal situation in two months time.

Second, I can’t manage my time properly now. I am still getting used to my new schedule. With us living too far away from our office, I need to wake up very early in the morning. Prepare everything and leave home before 6 o’clock in the morning. That made me feels so sleepy while I am in the office. Another thing is, with lot of household choirs to do, I am very much overwhelmed. In the end, I easily got tired and end up accomplishing nothing.

Third, I was not able to update my blog daily. With the poor time management that I currently have, I need to set aside my blog for a while and concentrate first to some other things.

Those failures and some family problems made me feel a little bit depressed too. But instead of concentrating on being a loser, I tried my best to find an outlet and that’s reading books. Thanks again to my donors – redlan, princess_dyanie and to my other friends who lend some books to me and even accompanied me to the second hand bookstore near our office.

And now that I failed to enroll for a refresher course, I’m planning to enroll in a driving school before the year end. I’m just getting ready. Who knows, the car might comes soon. Think Positive! Think Positive!

Also, we are planning to start a small business. Though I have a little knowledge when it comes to the actual operation of business, I know we can do it.

So, wish me some luck friends. Your prayers will be very much appreciated.


what's keeping me busy?

I have several ideas playing in my mind yet I can’t write it right now. It is because I have so much work to do. And I am still thinking on what to do first. It is the result of being away from work for almost two weeks.

Aside from my work, I also have personal things that really keep me busy. I have the baby and husband to take care. I have the new house that still needs some cleaning and organizing and everything. I have plurk that needs regular update so that karma will not go down to zero again. I have this blog that was ignore for such a long time. I am also busy reading my new books.

And oh speaking of books, I would like to take this opportunity to thank princess_dyanie for granting one of my wishes.

Here’s what she gave me:

Dyanie, thank you very much.

What else? I am also a little bit depressed. As of today, I haven’t talk to my family in the province. Their cellular phones are still cannot be reach. I miss them and at the same time I am so worried about them because of the typhoon that hits our province.

How about you? What’s keeping you busy?

welcome to our new home!

hey guys, i know i owe you the pictures of our new home. the house that gave me sleepless nights. mahirap at magastos pala magpagawa and that really made me crazy. being an ordinary employee eh wala naman akong maipagmamalaki. hindi pa sya talagang tapos but we decided to stop the constructions and moved-in.

halina, silipin natin ang aming bagong tahanan.

here's now the front view.

the gate is still unpainted until now. and the developer disapproved my request for the refund of our construction bond because we haven't paint it yet. i told them that i am requesting for a refund so i can buy paint pero hindi umobra. hehehe. wala lang gusto ko lang din magpasaway sa engineer.

let's go inside. but please pay some respect to our guards so you'll be safe.

first to paopao, the kulit dog. K.A. gave that name to him. mahilig syang kumahol and sobrang makulit.

and he's friend siber. he is actually my sister's pet. unlike paopao, siber is very tahimik. hindi sya kumakahol but beware dahil sya ang higit na mas matapang.

and of course please don't forget to say hi to our hostess, K.A., sya ang mag entertain sainyo.part of our terrace/balcony. the rooms. the one which is partly open is our room and the other one is my sister's room.

sarap matulog noh? lika dito sa aming kwarto.

and kapag medyo nakaramdam ka na ng gutom, ito naman ang aming munting kusina.

that's it guys. wala pa kaming masyadong gamit. and i think it will takes few more years bago kami makakumpleto. nasa probinsya pa halos lahat ng gamit namin yong gifts during our wedding and we still don't know kelan namin maitransport dito sa manila.


I’m back!

Hello everyone! I’m back and I really miss you so much guys.

Excuse me for not updating you for such a long time. It’s because I got sick and I decided to be away for a while. Blame it to the weather. Mahina ang aking resistensiya kaya konting ulan lang siguradong trangkaso na ang aking kalalagyan. Hay…

Another reason why I was away for more than two weeks is because I traveled to our home town. Despite being sick, I still tried my best to witness the wedding of my younger brother held last April 28. Mas mahirap kasing tiisin ang tampo ng mga kamag-anak kaysa sa sakit lang ng ulo.

That’s it for now. I still need to prepare myself and be ready to report to work again.

Happy Monday everyone!
