Think before you write

I am thinking if I should write this. Well, in FB or instagram or in Twitter, it is encouraged to Think before you Click. How about in Blogging? Think before you write?

Writing has always been my stress reliever. When I did not have computer yet nor internet connection, I had this notebook where I wrote many things. I had poems, phrases, even a song! Well, I do not have that notebook anymore as it was washed away by the flood.

So, what am I stressing about? Work, work, work. Anyways, I know that I should not be stressed out when it comes to work or else, I would end up a loser, right? Inhale, exhale!!!

Okay, I received a news today that I will have a new boss and a new task. Well, I know that I will be able to do my best but still, can I just have my existing Boss? My higher Boss, said No…get out of my comfort zone…opportunity to grow, etc… Inhale, exhale…Lots of prayers too. Dear God, please forgive me for not being so good today and for committing mistakes. Please guide me and always protect me. Amen.

Then, on my existing workload…that I think I should not be doing… oh, well…some people can really be so cruel and out of reason…”May pinagdadaanan?” That person might be in a bad mood that is why she is like that? Oh, she is always like that! Inhale, exhale!!!…lots of prayers too. Dear God, please help me to have more patience and understanding and let me not be affected by trials like this. I hope that she forgives me too if she saw that I was disappointed with her. Amen.

Okay, I am fine now. I have written it all? To post or not to post? Well, this is a blog. She does not know about this blog. If in the future she might stumble upon this, then maybe she will just laugh at it. Anyways, this is just how I feel right now. I have no ill feelings towards her. Yes, it is just job. I will just let it pass. Tomorrow is another day.

Dear God, Thank You for today. You are the Greatest God. I entrust all things to You, oh Lord. Amen.

Release stress

It is a tiring day today and I need retail therapy! Yes, I want to buy everything and even my hubby’s digitech jamman can already be on his hand any time soon! Well, we need some music in the house too and do some jamming because the weather is gloomy and I also want to make some noise just to release some stress!
Retail therapy, music and very loud music, I like!!!

The importance of proofreading

I browsed thru this blog and saw in around three posts some grammatical errors. Now, I realized that, yes, proofreading will really pay off. Well, I wanted to edit those posts right now but it is already 106 am and I prefer to go to sleep.

I guess, I really need to keep in my mind to always do proofreading. And, yes, one of the popular “sayings” in the office– do the right thing at the first time.

Thinking of ways to save more money

Yes, I am thinking of ways to save more money right now. Well, what are my first steps? Here, at home, of course!
1. List down all expenses and how much- of course there should be a baseline or starting point. I plan to start tomorrow. 🙂
2. Make an inventory of existing supplies:
A. Toiletries
B. Canned goods
C. Rice
D. Meat
E. Condiments
…and other things…
From here, I think I can already save some Pesos if only I can also strategize on using them or what brand should I buy.
3. Of course, my favorite thing to do is to look for promo offers! Example: Shampoo plus free bottle of conditioner- though I think that is not totally free but offered at a lower price only. That is why some promos just put “save as much as a particular amount” rather than saying that it is a free offer.

For now, these are the things that I can think of.
I shall go back here for some update on the progress and maybe record here my inventory of our existing supplies. 🙂

Love Affair with the Strings

Whenever w go to the mall, there is a place that we make as our meeting place in case that our phone batteries got drained and there is no way for us to get in touch with each other. Where else but at guitar center! Well, I am outnumbered because I have tow boys and I am the only girl in the family. Anyways, we do not find guitars only at the guitar center. There are other musical instruments too. Have I mentioned that I know how to play the banduria? It is just that, I do not like to rekindle that love affair with the strings because I do not want the banduria to be like the ukelele that we bought last time. What happened? No one plays it anymore. I decided to just start learn playing that since we already purchased that one. So, ukelele first, then maybe, banduria again in the future.

I Can Hear Your Voice

Have I mentioned here that my addiction to Korean Dramas have not yet ended? I think my longest addiction ever. The latest in my list is I CAN HEAR YOUR VOICE. I love this drama! This stars Lee Jong Suk! I was able to encounter him in Pinocchio and I think he is more superb in this old drama. He has the ability to read minds here. He fell in love with a lawyer who is older than him. I guarantee that when you watch this drama, it will really be worth your while.

Just what we need

Maybe it is the dynaflex powerball that we need? Well, we the office workers who types everyday. Do not forget the musicians, specifically those that use their fingers or hands for their instruments. Imagine a small thing that is not burdensome yet it does wonders! I am really glad to have found this. I will definitely grab one for myself and I think this will be a great gift for my friends this Christmas as well.

Then they say I told you so

Then they say I told you so.. I really do not like it. All those finger pointing and all. Well, someone has to be accountable for it, that is why? Well, yes… but please react to it in a more logical manner, right? What I am talking about here? Another office scene. A production issue that occur but was arrested immediately. Well, it is for the tech team to say that, of course. Anyways, it is hard if someone is closed minded about it already even if the investigation already clearly shows what happened.

The difference between a job and a career

The difference between a job and a career. Well, this new Head of the Marketing Department told this to his subordinates. I think this makes sense but it hurts. Well, the truth hurts, right?

I do not want to have self pity but indeed, I think I only have a job but not a career? I know that I will not become an executive in the company where I am right now. Is it because I do not work hard or I just do not care? Maybe I do not really have goals or am I just contented? You know, three times a day meal, merienda, eat whatever you like, shelter, a little money–simple things. I think that I am still blessed and even more blessed than the others? Why pressure myself, right?

One thing, I know I can still improve and it is not too late to iron some wrinkles.

I am anonymous

Sometimes, when you want to vent out–you would like to vent out anonymously. Well, how can there be traffic if you do not advertise your blog or ask your friends to visit? The only thing that you need to avoid is to write about them, right? Well, that is the downside especially if your blog is a personal one and your outlet to feel better when you are down.
