TAKING A BREAK 05/02/2010
All of us have a routine. Most of you would have the home work/school then home routine daily. Well, I have the good life 🙂 home and home LOL… As a virtual assistant, I work homebased and live a virtual world most of the time. Only my volunteer activities take me out of my humble abode. My 5×6 purple room is where I work and sleep. It is through my facebook that I met Istara Bon Gundry and her bestfriend Alexis Stanger.
Istara is one of the Philippine’s rising stars of GMA Network currently part of the “Take me Out” dating show at Channel 7. She is so cool and speaks Filipino too. Alexis is from LA and visiting her bestfriend, if you were to ask me, she should be a star too, and yes, I am calling the attention of our Network Talent Scouts… We got a live one! I have a feeling she is the one turning it down though LOL.
We went out together with Olga and the rest of my Kabalikat Family to Laiya Beach yesterday. A long ride with not much of an aircon since the weather was way too hot. Who cares though, we slept it off most of the way.
Spent the rest of the afternoon, walking with Istara and Alexis and playing with my fellow Kabalikat. It was a blast !! Really had a good time!
Since the beginning of this year, all I ever wanted is to take a break from the routines I have including the problems of life that seem to be popping out every so often. And taking a break was just what I needed and it is just what I did !!!!
MOVIE & SERIES REVIEWS 04/28/2010
Well, I am back to movie & series marathons while trying to pass time while taking a shot at forgetting the realities of Life.
Started out with the Back-up Plan starring J.Lo and that cool hunk (whew!) love it ! It has this realistic side to their lover’s quarrel midway not to mention the funny things you do when you are in love! Then I watched the Bounty Hunter which is great but didn’t really make me happy 😦 Then there is the Valentine’s Story which was an inter-twingling (whattaword!) movie LOL but I loved it! Specially Anne Hattaway’s other job! hahahah Then I figured it was a Tuesday and my 2nd set of fave series were on Axn…Leverage, NCIS: LA, and 24 !!! Woohoo! loved everysecond watching it! Leverage keeps it cool as always trying to get even with other people’s business! NCIS: LA was about social networking and eric having his 1000 facebook friends well I have 685 i think and happy with it! Btw, Eric the computer guy was really proud of it and apparently it does matter even to National Security lol.. 24 came up next and need I say anything more about Jack Bauer?? Wow!
Last but not the least I spent most of time doing a marathon for Season 2 & 3 of CHUCK ! Zachary Levi is one hell of a spy 🙂 I love his funny ways and friends too! Can’t wait to find out if I am missing more seasons than what we have here in the Philippines… Enough of me blabberring about these movies and series on tv gotta get back to working… Youtube Star hunting! CIAO !!!
MONEY — HOW HARD IS IT TO FIND??? 04/18/2010
Some people know where to find money. Some people just have the luck like winning it in a poker table. Some are too tired to complain from working 20hours a day just to have food at the table and extra money to relax. Some have sacrificed their wants and became a doctor, now getting paid so high just to tell their patients what they already know and write off a prescription. Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against doctors. It was just an example 🙂
Some people work their selves to death to find jobs they want and eventually finding one which is still not to their liking. Can people really get satisfied with what they have??? There are some people who are blessed to be born with a gold spoon, and does not even take a look at their bank account, and still enjoy shopping. I know someone who has worked hard to become someone she really wants to be (Or not?!), got it and getting highly paid for it. Kudos.
Talking to my life guru (who happens to be a friend a very successful businessman) gave me sleepless nights. I asked his advice on the business I wanted to put up. He gave me very good ideas which are really questions I need to answer before swimming in deep waters also called the business world. I am a little bit confused as to1 what to do as I have a lot of ideas here in my head…. Now I am thinking, make use of what I have which is this website, hence, the business section….
HOW HARD IS IT REALLY?? I MEAN TO FIND THE MONEY THAT YOU NEED OR WANT ??? GUESS IT DEPENDS ON THE HOPE AND DRIVE YOU HAVE IN YOU. WHAT DO YOU THINK???
YOUTUBE STARS WANTED 04/18/2010
I have been searching for Youtube Stars for almost 2 weeks now and still no luck. Today, I tried talking about it in the main room chat… got some attention but still no takers..
Is it really this hard to find youtube stars who would agree to promote our site/team?? If I had 10,000 hits on my channel I would not let such an opportunity pass me by… Imagine all you gotta do is promote us and you get paid a whooping $1000 US Dollars!! Whew! Who wouldn’t want that??? Oh I think forgot to mention it was monthly as long as you keep promoting us.
Let me know if you are interested ok?
iNSOMNIA. How do you actually get cured? Or is it really a sickness that you would want to be healed from? Well, I have spent a lot of times being sleepless or short of it. It is now that I truly find it a blessing! 🙂 I am able to take on jobs online and have peace while working homebased. Since everybody is asleep. What else can I ask for? A few days ago, I found myself staring at my unread novels, I had 8 books shelved since I got addicted to the cyber world. I read one from Lawrence Block and as always I find him funny and amusing. I miss my Nero Wolfe collection though. Anyway, the book was very entertaining. This burglar series is about Bernard Rodenbarr who happens to be a great thief who is intelligent, witty and owned an old used bookstore. Love it as usual.
What else can I say about my Insomnia??? Hmmmm I am kind of lost for words right now, but I will be back 🙂
PRO’S AND CON’S OF A HOME OFFICE 02/1/2010
I am currently doing a powerpoint presentation for a friend who needs to have his outsourcing options. I am in between jobs right now so I decided to have a productive day.( Well yeah, I do have 2 Project Management jobs active and 3 interviews pending 🙂 ) But I find doing this power point a good way to exercise some skills. I have included an option for him to consider doing his outsourcing thru odesk and I am at this point of laying out the advantages and disadvantages of doing so. I started to do some blog research and came across 2 well written blogs….http://www.homeofficewarrior.com/home-office/home-office-advantages-disadvantages-conversation this was written by Grant Griffiths and also another one from Beverly Lee athttp://smallhomebusiness.suite101.com/article.cfm/home_based_business_advantages they basically point out the same thing. Working homebased is not an easy job. Pro’s and Con’s stare you in the face, yet I guess what really matters is how much you enjoy doing this kind of job. I have been working home-based thru odek since November technically and really enjoying it!
WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS!!! 01/31/2010
I lost my phone this evening. And it has only been a matter of hours since I realized it was missing but still, I can’t accept the fact that I lost it. I had a Blackberry Tour 9630, a dream phone of mine, it is not even a month old. I can’t help but cry thinking about it. The phone is replaceable but what hurts me is losing the numbers I had for quite awhile and all my contacts are in there. Now I have to get a new number, that sucks!
A few weeks ago my laptop was going crazy. It hangs as if I have all day to wait for it to reload. I had to refrain from applying as often as I did the previous weeks and even overlooked my tasks for a valued client. What is happening to me? I do my best to think positive everyday. I try to do volunteer work as often as I could. But here I am beset with mishaps. I am going to try to sleep and rest and start a new day tomorrow.
I am just so sad right now….
THE BEST 20 SECONDS OF MY LIFE 01/30/2010
The idea of hanging 200 feet or so above the ground was appealing but with it came Fear. It was exciting to think about it, yes, then after a few seconds of silence, you begin to be doubtful. Questions start pouring in…will the harness hold? can it really carry my weight? will I throw up in the air? puking? hell no! Gross thoughts start to attack the bravery I had in me. A few meters away at the ticket booth and joined by 2 friends (Joanne 3495 and Maki 3490, fellow officers with my Kabalikat family) I was starting to be embraced by the feeling of hesitation. I was seeing people being thrown and strapped to the harness then they push you and leave you clinging for dear life. Ok, here I am minutes away and started searching for the guts I had in me. I am no “cream puff” I am so doing this! Thinking it is no different from going on the loops of the old Revolution Roller Coaster Ride at Six Flags! Woohoo I find myself taking the steps on to Station 2, a brief discussion with the zipline staff, seeing Joanne strapped and it is time! I was carried feet first and holding on to the rope for steadiness, all strapped in!! There is no turning back!!! Here we go! The shouts, screams and @/!? were all over the place with me and Joanne side by side up in the air, then realizing it wasn’t as tough as I imagined it to be…I HAD THE BEST 20seconds or so OF MY LIFE!!!!!
