Art. I am participating in this Art Every Day Month creative group wherein we create an artwork on a daily basis for the whole month of November. This is actually my first time to participate in such creative online groups and I am very overwhelmed with the positivity as well as the support and appreciation that this group has reflected upon me. Being an artist at heart, I really wish to be able to create art constantly. However, with work schedules and the reality of having just 24 hours in a day, I obviously do not have the luxury of time for my passion.
Blogs. I would admit that in the past 2 months that I have been blogging, it made a lot of difference. I guess I can say that I feel less stressed because of the fact that through this online diary, I am able to express my feelings and thoughts without really worrying about what other would think about what I have to say. Another reason that made me love blogging is the connections that I have made with other bloggers. It's nice to have new friends most especially when you are an immigrant in this foreign country. :-) Lastly, it's just fun to read about other people's stories. I find it very amusing to read about different things, some of which I can relate to and some are totally new to me. It opens my eyes to what life really has to offer. It makes me aware of some things that I take for granted. And of course, it gives me inspiration to pursue my dreams and live a better life. :-)
Love. Being in love with such a wonderful man for almost a year made a lot of change in my life. I was doing alright then, I moved on from the past and just lived my life. But after meeting Glenn, everything changed. I didn't realize that I could be much happier. I see beauty in everything. As cliche as it may sound, living a life filled with love made everything seem colourful and bright. Problems are still present because that's just the way life is, but then I was able to handle things better. I was able to have a better grasp on things. I am inspired to pursue my dreams and try even harder in order to get to my destination. My finish line is much clearer in my head now. :-)
Report. I have this GoldMine report that I need for work. But then again, that could wait. :-)
Holiday projects. I am listing down projects that I want to work on during my holiday break. As much as I want to do them now, I simply can't because of time issues. And so, I am working on my lists and ranking them by priorities on which ones I want to do first. This would also include downtown strolls with my family and Glenn. This is why I need to list them down. haha. :-) I just don't want my vacation to go to waste by just staying at home and doing nothing. :-)Christmas lists. With Christmas just 24 days away, I need to finish my Christmas shopping. I am listing down names of people I need to shop for gifts. And of course I am also visualizing on how to gift wrap them. I want it to be personal and unique and so, I really have a lot of creative ideas in mind that I need to work on. :-)
Really starting to get back into shape. I have gained so much weight in the past months and now I really feel it. My clothes are getting tighter and it just does not feel comfortable. haha. :-) The holiday season is fast approaching which only means that there will be lots of parties and gatherings... There will be food overload again. And because it's also getting colder and winter is near, I have to admit that it even makes me feel lazier to work out. But then again, I don't want to gain even more pounds. I don't want to feel insecure and I just want to lose a few pounds and maintain it. I have to start working on it ASAP to have results. :-)
Christmas and New Year. It is our first Christmas and New Year here at our new place. This makes me so excited. And also, it's my first holiday season with Glenn as well. :-) Now that's really something to look forward to. I would love to spend this season with the people I love and just enjoy it.
The sound of my fingers tapping the keyboard. When I blog, I don't like to listen to songs because I can't concentrate that much. Whenever I hear a song that I know, I just can't help but sing along, and then I can't think, type and sing at the same time. If it's just a background music or something instrumental, then that's fine.
Coffee. I am just addicted to coffee. I drink an average of 4 cups a day. Sometimes, I even reach 7 cups. But then I really need to tone it down to 2 cups for health reasons. What can I say, coffee just tastes so good. :-)
This is just some random post that I saw today and I just wanted to play as well. :-)
My brothers and friends are here. It has been two and a half years already since we moved here in Canada and sometimes I still feel homesick. It's not really the place, but it's the people that I love that makes me miss home. I miss my brothers so much. I miss my friends a lot too. It would be nice to have them here with me and experience my new life. :-)
