Looking for Trophies

I remember when I was young, there were clubs being organized, contests being held, or recognitions being listed.  Medals and trophies are among those being given.   The organizers are tasked to find the best trophies or medals for these events.  I also remember that I was also assigned to look for a medal in one of these school events.

Today it is not considered a problem anymore as there are already a lot of online stores that has a variety of trophies and medals.   Still, some others go to downtown stores that offer cheaper ones.

This is just one of those you can find in my memory box. If you ask me what love teams there were during my high school days, I cannot answer.  😀

Sensible MyLot Discussions

I am a member of MyLot, and yes I earn money from participating in and starting discussions.  I do not earn much as time would not allow me.  I discovered that participating in forums are rewarding.  It hones your ability to write and your ability to socialize as well.

Not all discussions posted in this forum are worth the time.  Some are even wont to start multiple discussions in a day and when you go check them, most of it are not even worth your time reading. There are a few though that you can learn from, discussions that will not be left responded to because of the interesting topic and the uniqueness of the writing style. I know, everybody has his own writing style but who would not be attracted to one that is eloquently, or carefully, or expertly, written? 😀

A discussion in a forum actually does not need to be very long as it could really bore your readers, nor be very short as it would appear to be haphazardly done.  Some starters though unwittingly copy an idea.  The content may not be the same but the whole idea is the same and you will be thinking if the starter had even done his or her research before clicking the button. (That pretentious senator is not alone, I guess.) 😀

Musician’s friend

It was Glen’s birthday yesterday.  If I have lots of money, I would have given him pro tools 10 musicians friend.  It is an audio production software for recording, composing, editing, and mixing music and sound for picture. He and his friends could use it someday when they decide to composed their own music.

Pro Tools, Digidesign ICON D-Command and lots ...

That’s wishful thinking, I know.  It’s not breaking the law dreaming about something that is almost impossible to have but hey, I was able to buy a second hand car!  Who would have thought I can? LOL 😀

There is an end to everything

When something’s ending, you go through so many phases, and it can be frustrating. But once you’re out on the other side, it’s like you can really see all the crazy phases you went through.  – Norah Jones

I have always believed that there is always an end to everything that is happening.  Even laughter has to end, and with it happiness.  It’s a vicious cycle that no one is capable of stopping but by pretending it has not yet ended.

So if you think you are the luckiest creature on earth to be able to hide what you do in secret and nobody knows what you do, believe that it will end one day, and it will be discovered.  The sad thing about it is when the ending has to happen with scandal and intrigue.  You might not want anymore to hear what others have to say.

 

M* knows how to play the guitar!

I was surprised to hear that M* knows how to play the guitar. No, she didn’t buy her instrument from the telecaster guitar center but it was a gift from her dad when she was in high school.  Also, it was not an electric guitar that she plays with.  It was just a simple guitar but it amazes me still learning that she could actually play and create tunes from the guitar.

The conversation started from an exchange of thoughts when we get bored from the whole scenario of working in a company that gives one more headaches than glory.  That is where she mentioned that when she gets home from a disappointing day at work, she would play the guitar. “Don’t tell me it’s an electric guitar you’re playing?” I asked and she told me it isn’t.  I have no doubt that she will learn to play an electric guitar, too, if given the time, as she already has the basics.

This woman never ceases to amaze me.  She drives a car, a motorbike, knows some martial arts, knows how to swim and now plays a guitar!

I Missed Having a Dog

We have a new baby in the house.   I introduce to you – Dogdog.

Dogdog is a doxie-pin

I didn’t christen the poor pup.  My daughter and her boyfriend wanted the name desperately for this little bundle of joy.  Papsie’s always laughing out loud at the sound of the name, and making fun of it, too.  It didn’t change Kay’s decision.

We are getting used to it already.  The little pup gives us consolation to our tiring work days.  He eagerly runs forward to greet you as if he wanted to shout “I missed you!”  He knows how to use the water feeder in his training cage already, and sleeps in his cage without a yelp all through the night.

The downside is we are like taking care of a newborn baby, and parents know what I mean saying it’s not easy. 😦

I Didn’t Wear Maternity Leggings

True, I didn’t wear maternity leggings when I was pregnant with Kay and Daryl.  Being a new mom, I remember I was very afraid to wear leggings or even pants that have stretchable front panels.  I really thought of it as dangerous to the growing baby inside.  I was afraid these pants could hinder the growth of the baby.

My mother-in-law sewed my maternity dresses those times.  When I go to the malls, I simply chose dresses and completely ignored all maternity leggings and pants.  There were moms that wear them during those times.  They looked okay but my fear overcame the desire to try.

My babies were big and healthy when they were delivered.  I always thought that not wearing the leggings might have contributed to their  healthy condition while inside the tummy.   I may sound silly but this is what I did and how I thought of the whole thing when I was pregnant.
