Thankful

I am overjoyed with all the blessings that I received this month so I will end January with a big THANK YOU. Tomorrow will be a start of another exciting month and I’m up for the challenges that lie ahead, and yes, adding another year to your age is still exciting. The forecast says sunny days ahead but still, no matter where you are and no matter where you go, always bring your own sunshine.

Caffenaddict

"You know you're a Caffenaddict when you get a headache by 9am if you don't get your fix. (urban dictionary)

But for me, it's not really having a headache but it's just that I can't seem to finish my powerpoint presentation without my coffee fix. It also doesn't only happen in the morning but also at night. So here I am, trying to finish my powerpoint while trying to resist coffee temptation. If I'll have another cup tonight, it would be my fourth, and I'm really trying to limit up to three only; I want to keep my caffeine intake low.

planner

I wasn't able to get a planner from Starbucks so I bought one. Whew! Planners are expensive nowadays. I wanted the stylish ones but cannot afford it. I know, there's scheduler or notepads in smartphones, but this one doesn't run low on battery.

Customer service

I am really disturbed every time I see some of my colleagues not entertaining the visitors well, who come to our office. It's like they are irritated whenever a visitor comes asking for some of the services we are supposed to give. These people visit us, sometimes not knowing the exact thing they need, so it's our responsibility to guide them by asking questions with a calm voice. It makes me so annoyed when they are given a bad treatment. You're working for the government, so you should be serving the public. That's why people hate some government institutions because of these frontliners who are not treating the public well. So maybe government employees in the Philippines should also have training for customer service.

Everyone's Free

By: Baz Luhrmann

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of '99. Wear sunscreen.
If I could offer you one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. 
The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no  
        basis more reliable than my own meandering experience... I will dispense this advice now
Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh, nevermind, you will not understand the power and beauty 
       of your youth until they've faded. 
But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now,      
       how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked. 
You are NOT as fat as you imagine. 
Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an 
       algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. 
The real troubles in life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside 
       you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday
Do one thing everyday that scares you.
Sing.
Don't be reckless with other people's hearts. Don't put up with people who are reckless with yours. 
Floss. 
Don't waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long, and in the end, it's only with yourself. 
Remember compliments you receive. Forget the insults. If you succeed in doing this, tell me how. 
Keep your old love letters. Throw away your old bank statements. 
Stretch. 
Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. 
The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives; some of the 
       most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't. 
Get plenty of calcium. 
Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone. 
Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll  
       divorce at 40. 
Maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary. 
Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either - your choices are half  
       chance, so are everybody else's.
Enjoy your body, use it every way you can... don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it... it's the  
       greatest instrument you'll ever own. 
Dance... even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room. 
Read the directions, even if you don't follow them. 
Do NOT read beauty magazines they will only make you feel UGLY. 

CHORUS
Brother and sister together we'll make it through.
Someday your spirit will take you and guide you there. 
I know you've been hurting, but I've been waiting to be there for you. 
And I'll be there just helping you out whenever I can. 

Get to know your parents, you never know when they might be gone for good. 
Be nice to your siblings; they're your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in 
       the future
Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge 
       the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew 
       when you were young. 
Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard. 
Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.
Travel. 
Accept certain inalienable truths. Prices will rise, Politicians will philander, you too will get old. And 
       when you do, you'll fantasize that when you were young, prices were reasonable, politicians were   
       noble, and children respected their elders. 
Respect your elders. 
Don't expect anyone else to support you. 
Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one 
       might run out. 
Don't mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85. 
Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. 
Advice is a form of nostalgia; dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, 
         painting over the ugly parts, and recycling it for more than it's worth. 

But trust me on the sunscreen. 

CHORUS

Everybody's free. Everybody's free.

FM

I'm back to listening to FM stations and I'm liking it. I thought I'd never go back because of the convenience of mp3s in my laptop or iPods. But it's quite different. It's still fun listening to my favorite stations like WRock and Killer Bee. So now, I will let iTunes playlist relax, cause the DJ is playing my song..

and I'm currently listening to Kaleidoscope by Francis M. Still the best.

Happy 2013

I welcomed 2013 filled with joy and optimism. There are so many things to thank for during the past year and a lot of things to hope for, for 2013. I’m seeing a very busy 2013 and I’m excited.  It’s gonna be busy in all departments of my life and I’ve got some very important targets this year, including learning how to drive. 
2012 was another memorable year because of new friends, new course, new career and new love. It was another turning point of my life and I survived. It’s the year when I started to get excited when there’s a storm coming. It was also the year when I made important decisions, including having curls, and it was the year when I was brave enough to join a dance contest, Gangnam style.

my curly hair (i was in grade 5 the last time i had my hair curled)

Cheers to 2013!!!!!
