entrep.

i received great news early today, that a friend of mine, miong, won in the philippine bidchallenge 2007… and so, we just spent the day chit-chatting bout what had happened during the awarding, and man, he really sounded so hyper.  he’s on a high… ay, it’s just nice to know that hard work really does pay off…  especially for a young entrepreneur like him.  i hope and pray that this thing paves way for grander things for the guy, so he’d be a real inspiration to the people he employs. by the way, give him some love and buy some Kingsgrill. lol, commercial. haha.

dont know what it is, maybe the economy, but a lot of my friends are becoming business-minded…  a girl friend of mine, dhey, sent me a message askin me if i wanna share a booth with her for this one bazaar.  begged off as i got nothing to sell right now. told her i’d give her a ring once the bazaar thing we’re planning at the office pushes through this December.

 then my other friend, riz, wanted to do business too…  despite the fact that she’s earning a lot as a scriptwriter for a major tv station.  i suggested we go and try to be a mini-pr group, since we’re communication majors, but i think she wants us to try our luck as publishers instead. well, why not.  one of these days, im gonna try and do some research to make sure we’d do good. now, this gets me to realize that miong’s right, that i ough tto be thinking of starting a business while im young.

… which means i have to be serious when thinking business.  i do have some sidejobs — designing posters, logos, blah blah (blacksheep? lol) but i believe i could do more.

side note: we had a birthday celebration yesterday at the office, and it was fun.  tito tony (who celebrates his birthday today) prepared super sarap food… ansaya-saya! 🙂

bataan.

was in bataan the whole day thursday for an environmental workshop.  we were invited to conduct a lecture for the people in limay, and so we went there, in full gear, and did our thing. 

i believe the workshop had been really productive, especially with the outputs (commitment and learnings) given by the people of limay.  they said they would start doing campaigns on proper waste management, and air and water management, for their children.

ansayasaya. 🙂

the green choice.

finished two posters this morning — one’s for the consumer month (see photo), and the other, i cant say yet — but it has something to do with a music fest on november *wink*… 

late afternoon, was already free — so i took this numerology test, and this is well, part of the result:

“You respond to life from the heart. You want joy and happiness for yourself and for those around you. Inspiration and imagination are yours in abundance. You are somewhat of a dreamer.

Children and pets occupy a special place within.

You enjoy beauty, popularity, and constant activity. What you have is all you ask for.

Life is a game. You enjoy life as it comes, laughing at discouragement or failure, and never letting depression get the upper hand. Even so, there is a reticent side to your nature. You might be living in a world of feeling and emotion. You fall in Love easily.

You can see beauty everywhere. And you express your own beauty through your varied artistic talents — painting, sculpting, speaking, decorating, acting, music, writing — anything with color, form, or rhythm.

Seems you have a lot of friends; often entertaining, broadcasting your energy and your Love, giving everyone a good time. You are probably not unfaithful, but you enjoy flirting. You are kind and obliging. Your friends mean a great deal to you. ”

“You appear friendly, persuasive, self-controlled, and positive, with a powerful personality that attracts respect from both leaders and subordinates. You are one who gets things done. ”

the rest talks about the future.. so id keep it to myself.

despedida.

we had a despedida party at the office today for our ojt, lloyd (the guy with psychos me, alons, and karen in the previous post). twas fun, we were singing and laughing our asses off..  we’re in a light mood, not really that much work to do lately — just this “green consumer” mini-poster for tita vel, and a presentation for miss elen.  hmmn, speaking of, ill be in bataan this thursday and friday for an official business with tita tina and miss elen…  hope it’s gonna be one of those “fun” lectures like the one with caleruega and this teachers’ college (my fave audience still).

im planning a new business, and am all too excited about it, as in.  ive already asked a “manufacturer” (or something like that) to print a sample of well, secret, and hopefully, id be able to market it well so i could earn more moohlah. positive thinking, yeahh. 

and yeah, speaking of the law of attraction, i think it would help if you’d be more specific.  cause right now, i got one of my wishes but it was not quite. i forgot to “request” some numbers.  but still good for me. next time, id really be specific — like i’d drop names na. hahaha.

my friend bulei just had her baby, so bulei, congratulations! i miss bulei, it’s been years since i last saw her kasi, so lei, mwaahzzzz!

x’s:  it’s Maging Sino Ka Man ‘s final week.  It’s the super duper bestestest show on tv today so better catch it. ayos ba riz? hehehe.

dear diary,

sunday. mall. rain. brown out. palpitation. shortness of breath.  anxiety attack. clinic.

equals anxiety attack.  yep, that’s basically how i spent mothers’ day.  was with my mama at the mall, it rained..  then a power cut-off. palpitated, couldnt breathe, had an anxiety attack, and rushed myself to the clinic (good thing there’s one at the mall).

yesterday, i thought i felt not being able to breathe so i decided to go see a shrink as i got struck by this anxiety thing last quarter last year…  was in a mood to really know what’s causing all these so i went to the hospital, talked to a psychiatrist who told me, “it’s not serious…  just try not to think a lot…  and honey, it’s mind over matter.” — well, the shrink said a lot more but to sum it up, she said something like that. 

yep, she’s right… it’s really mind over matter.  she suggested that, if, and if ever i will again have an attack,  i should do some heavy deep breathing, and deviate my thoughts on other things daw.  okay, follow the doc’s orders, right?

and now, am sorta not doing anything heavy or brain-draining.  my boss was super kind kasi since she knew i had an anxiety attack last sunday, and a bit last monday morning.  anyway, here’s one of our latest pixies here at the office, pre-anxiety pic, but you could see me going psycho na

i guess alona and karen look more psycho than i do here, huh.  kiddin. hehehe. 

love,
me

ps. dont stress yourself out. relax.
