Money is what I need!

We are having the second floor of our house renovated. It is being prepped for my brother and his soon-to-be wife with their unborn baby in mind, of course. To date, I am already shelling out thousands of peso for the renovation and there will be more to budget in the coming days.

Needless to say, I need more money to pour in. It is pouring out faster and who wants money to flow out that way, right? I need cash and some sectors of my life are not cooperating. Hmp!

I will write an update once the second floor is close to completion.

The rest of July 2013, please be extra good to me financially please!

Busy month ahead.

It will be one heck of a month, I am sure of it! June will be a busy month for me as I am helping my brother and his fiancee prepare their wedding. I am all stressed out over it particularly on the budgeting part. We don't have that much in terms of finances right now so it's doubly hard to shell out money.

I learned that preparing a wedding can be a pain in the ass! And no matter how hard you try to be as frugal as possible, the cost is still staggering! I can't believe that a suit can cost as much! Or a bouquet of calla lilies! Ugh!

Of course, at the end of the day, it's still about the couple getting married. At the end of the day, I am still helping prepare the wedding of our only brother (the other one passed away more than a decade ago).

I just wish I can get enough funds to cover everything including the very expensive photo and video coverage services!

June, please be good to me! Please rain in more blessings as I truly need it.

Very near completion...

Less than 3K words and I am done with the very first one. Yeah!

It was hard. I thought it would only take me close to two weeks to get it completed but I was wrong. It was hard to give birth to words if you are in a situation. You really need to be away from it all. You need to know how to separate your reality from the world you are trying to create and temporarily live in.

Good thing I have someone to push me to move forward and complete my very first. If it wasn't for my sister Meng, I would have set it aside like I always do and just let my dream of being one pass.

I can already taste the fulfillment of completing 24K words!

Very soon...

But then after that, it will be on to editing. Haha!

The Place

I need to find the place where I can complete all my ongoing projects. I have a lot of works-in-progress right now but since I can't really find the motivation to finish at least one, I have to find a way to force myself to do so. I know I am uninspired with my current location: noisy surroundings, messy corner, cluttered desk. I need a new venue where I can feel inspiration coursing through my veins.

How about a hotel room somewhere in the city then?

I just wish I have the money to stay even for a whole weekend.

Ang dami pa! So hard to catch up talaga. No way will I do this again.

Not complaining, though.

Drawing inspiration from others...

Whenever I find myself lacking inspiration for what I do, I browse similar sites to draw inspiration from others. And it has been an effective way for me to become inspired once again.

Like right now I am totally inspired by this blog I saw. I won't name it anymore but suffice it to say that she has content that interests me. No, I am NOT a plagiarist or a spammer or a copycat! I work hard for all the blogs that I have and I intend to continue doing so. I just need to see something that will call to my creative side. I need to see the work of others so I know what I will improve on mine.

Thank you, inspiring blog! I truly need the motivation to work harder.

Something needs to change ASAP!

Themes. Templates. Layout.
Topics. Niche?
Schedule of posting.
Way of writing. Already have an idea how.
Ratio of paid versus non-paid posts.

I got an offer from a DA. Just a copy-paste opportunity. No sweat! It would have been easy money for me but then the DA changed his mind. Do you know why? My blog has links in almost every post, according to the guy. Ugh!

To say I was disappointed was an understatement. Of course, I was already expecting that money to come in. I already have a very good plan for that money but then it was not meant to be.

I have now decided that something needs to be changed as soon as possible or I will lose opportunities like that again.

Any concrete ideas to help me out?

Cheers to all!

I have so many plans for this new year 2013. Plans for my personal life. Plans for blogging. Plans for my career. Yes, I am making a change in my career but I am still undecided as to what change that will be. Will I really go back to the corporate world and practice my real profession, a certified public accountant? Or will I make a shift in go in the writing and print business? Decisions...

I also would like to make a change in my lifestyle. A healthier me is now a must! I am trying to cut down on my rice intake. I am weighing whether I can stop myself from eating rice 6 days a week. Sunday will be my cheat day. Can I do it? We'll see.

And then there's my blogging plans. I have so many that my mind is reeling from all of it. I will begin rolling out all those plans one day at a time. Slowly but surely.

I am praying that all my plans will work out right and will fall into place very soon.

Happy New Year people! Praying for a productive, fruitful and blessed 2013 for all of us!
