The Sunday Currently, Vol. 21: Getting better

This week, I look at the things that I seem to be getting better at, such as relating to my kids, social networking, and blogging. On the other hand, I also see the things that I still need to get better at, such as recognizing my own shortcomings as a wife, parent, teacher, friend, and volunteer leader. I’m glad my God is a God of second chances and “His mercies never come to an end”; I could still get better every day. reading still the ebook copy of “How to Ruin Your Child in 7 Easy Steps: Tame Your Vices, Nurture Their Virtues” by Patrick M. Quinn and Ken Roach. I’ve been distracted by so many activities lately that I haven’t really got the time to read. Nevertheless, the book’s making me own up to my issue with pride, and I’m now on the part where it teaches (me) how to handle it. I’m getting to know myself (and my daughters) better with the help of this book. writing emails. I get overwhelmed every time I …

The Sunday Currently, Vol. 18: My 39th birthday

reading the birthday greetings I received through Facebook. I know that many of these well-wishers may not really know that it was my birthday yesterday until they saw the notification on Facebook. Regardless, I appreciate them taking the time to write me a short note and even ask how I’ve been, especially that my wall is on private mode. That is, no one can post anything on my wall without my approval, so that makes it a little bothersome for them to go to Messages or find an appropriate post where they could leave their messages in the comments field. writing down things that I need to do this coming week. Well, okay, I’m really trying to set new goals, but it looks like they would have to wait until I get some sleep. listening to what my heart is saying. And you know what, it’s telling me that I am happy. Who says an adult can no longer spend her birthday at TimeZone with both her young kids and adult friends and relatives? You have no idea …

The Sunday Currently, Vol. 17: A weekend of firsts

The This weekend was my first time to attend a major bloggers’ conference: Blogapalooza. It was also the first time I had an adult sleep over at our place, who also happens to be my cousin and playmate when I was young. We also visited my parents’ grave at night for the first time (and it’s not All Souls’ Day) and found out about the banchetta at Golden Haven. Anyway, just read on for more information and find out what other things went through my head this weekend. 😉 reading Ruth Soukup’s How to Blog for Profit Without Selling Your Soul on Kindle app. It’s really a good read–very encouraging and informative. It’s the first time I bought a book on blogging–and it was rather costly compared to the usual ebooks I buy–but it was worth it. It makes me wonder all the more, however, how certain blogs, especially by Filipino bloggers, get to have so many followers when all they do is promote products and events. I see no soul when I read their blogs, yet brands …

The Sunday Currently, Vol. 16: Weekend in Singapore

reading the birthday greetings I received on Facebook. I know that many of these well-wishers may not really know that it is my birthday today until they saw the notification on Facebook. Regardless, I appreciate them taking the time to write me a short note and even ask how I’ve been, especially that my wall is on private mode.

Who says an adult can no longer spend her birthday at TimeZone with both her young kids and adult friends and relatives? You have no idea how much fun we had! thinking about all the things that happened yesterday and today, and even the past few weeks. …

The Sunday Currently, Vol. 15: A week after my eldest officially became a teen

reading Sue Townsend’s The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year and Ruth Soukup’s How to Blog for Profit Without Selling Your Soul. Both are interesting reads and have been on my reading list for quite some time now. The first one’s purely for entertainment purposes although it’s not something that I would really recommend others to read; whereas, the latter is to equip me when it comes to blogging, especially now that I have subscribed to WordPress Premium Plan. And, yes, I would recommend Ruth Soukup’s books to anyone interested to learn more about blogging without selling their souls. 😉 writing stories randomly. As usual, there are lots of them in my drafts folder, and one even got accidentally published earlier, so I just went ahead and did the final edit. Now I’m wondering whether I should still write that love letter to my new teenager, who turned 13 last Sunday. What do you think? listening to Sesame Street songs. Well, they’re actually for my 10-year old daughter, who still couldn’t sleep even after I’ve read a …
