This has been a pretty busy week for me. I have been on my wits end in this side of the woods. Needless to say that eventhough a lot of writing had kept me preoccupied day in and day out, I feel more and more blessed. Indeed, God’s blessings is outpouring.
I look back to those days when I kept applying for Database Designer Jobs. I had to do it because at the time I still had a temporary status at work. I had to make ends meet with the meager salary that I had.
It was not easy. I had to settle all the monthly bills and help out my Mom in some other essential expenses at home. Though I was not obliged to be responsible for a lot of things at home, I just feel that I need to have my own share.
When the Kuerdas Band major got married in April, I was in tears when my mother tearfully thanked me in front of everyone.
It was actually the first time that she vocally expressed how thankful she was for all the support I had extended in the family especially for the wedding of my brother. I was not expecting to be praised in public for all the good things I have done for my family. I may not be a good daughter but I always try my best to help out in whatever means I can.
When I transferred here at the pad, my high school pal Elvie was with me all the way. She helped me scout for a good apartment and even with the purchase of some really good house items. We actually had difficulty choosing a good sofa for the living room. It was primarily because we had to consider the space of the apartment. So we opted on purchasing a carpet and some cushions.
With the new lifestyle that I tread, it was a little hard at first. I faced a transition period from living with my family to my current living condition. Now I have to look after myself because no one will do it for me. I had to do housecleaning, do the laundry, cook my own food, and the like. I had difficulty adjusting to it all in the beginning but with time management, I think I am doing well.
There was no regrets to my decision of living by my lonesome. I find solitude and I found it only now that I am on my own.
During the Tuna Festival Celebration which was held two weeks ago, lots of exhibits, malls shows and trade shows were conducted. Most who participated were SME’s or what they call Small Medium Entrepreneurs who were promoting their respective products to the consuming public.
I was amazed with all the products endorsed during the Tunafest celebration especially when Gensan’s best like people, places and products were showcased. The flooring used during the exhibits would actually make you gaze in amazement because it was like you were in a different culture. The ambiance was specifically suited for the event. It was exclusively presented for the benefit of the exhibitors to get the attention of the constituents.
As a whole, the event was very successful. No untoward event took place which hampered the lively progress of the celebration.Peace and order was made secure and the Police Personnel were on heightened alert. The Lady City Mayor won’t let any terrorism wreck havoc once more in the peaceful and booming City of the Generals.
The Kuerdas Band Major was not able to finish his degree in Mass Communications. It is a real pity when he only got 3 more subjects to be able to have the degree. I do not know what was running through his head but my mother and I were certainly disappointed. If only he would listen and heed our good advice.
Since he often goes online most of the time, I want him to search for sites that offer online degrees such as the one at WaldenU.edu. Walden University’s online degree programs I have heard are good to equip one with all the knowledge to be able to adapt in these changing environment. I told my brother to browse through the site and learn about Walden more.
I can only say that we never failed in motivating my brother in finishing through his education. How many times have we inculcated in him that his education is the only legacy that my parents can give him. How I wish he would have a change of heart and would finally enroll again. Even now that he is married, we never stop to tell him to finish school.
I do not now what is running through his head now but I can’t help but feel disappointed. I can only hope that what he plans to do for his life is for his own good and that of his own family.
I just find this photo of the Kuerdas vocals hilarious:
While my brother was dancing that reggae beat, we all can’t help but laugh when we saw the guard sternly looking on. I remember this was during the Tuna Fest culmination about three years ago. The venue was jam packed with reggae fanatics. In order to prevent peepz from getting up the stage, the guard had to be on the look out.
It was one fun night with Kuerdas and a lot of people enjoyed the reggae party.
I never had any inclinations in the medical field not until I decided to take a short term course in Medical Transcription. It was then when I began to appreciate Science. I even contemplated in getting a nursing degree.
I have even imagined myself clothed in neat cotton nursing scrubs ordered online from http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/. Lots of my friends who now works as a nurse as their profession never trusted any nursing uniform but at that site alone. They told me the quality of the clothing is guaranteed and the fabric that touches the skin is just irresistible
However, due to some inevitable circumstances, I never pursued my urge to enroll in a nursing school. I had to content myself of what I have for now. It is simply because I tend to do a lot of things all at the same time but eventually end up accomplishing nothing. I have often said that I lack consistency. I need to focus my goal on just one thing then do my best to achieve it before I plunge into something else yet again. That sounds logical, hehe!
Anyhow, I am loving what I have been doing for the last couple of years. I thank the Lord for all the blessings He bestowed upon me. Where He placed me at this time is the best and I could not ask for anything more.
Tonight it was raining so I decided to stay home and watch the Batman marathon on Direct tv. In my opinion, there’s no better superhero than Batman. He’s rich, smart, good-looking, and he’s got lots of awesome gadgets. My love for Batman started at a young age. I remember turning 6. My mother wanted to plan me a 101 Dalmatians themed birthday party and I asked her if we could invite Batman. My mother ignored my request (as usual), but when it came time for presents, it was no secret which gift I treasured most. My family and friends gave me Polly Pockets, Barbies, and frilly outfits normal girls would like. My grandfather (who had a way of always knowing what I really wanted) presented me with two action figures and a Batmobile. We have a home video of me opening the Batman toys and I can remember it like it was yesterday. I stood on my chair, moved my arms in circular motion (the ever-popular dance move), did a jig around the room, then aggressively and purposefully smashed the Batmobile into the middle of my Dalmatian cake.
My brothers who’s the Band Major and Lead Vocals of Kuerdas respectively loves to goof around at home during their idle moments. Let me show you a raw video for proof:
