This hardly looks like the blooms in that cheery shrub(?) I saw this morning. But hey, it did make me feel a bit productive. It feels good to be playing with old watercolors again.


04292014Craving for beef on a Tuesday is an indicator of one stressful week. Usually, that need for beef comes on a Thursday or Friday. Add some salad in honey mustard dressing (the only dressing I can prepare) to lessen the guilt. Accompany that with an ice filled tumbler of lemon flavored soda with chopped bits of real lemon rind to cool down on a warm summer evening.




Just couldn’t help it. IMG_4119

I volunteered to get the gift items for our graduating  development journalism students at the nearby shops lining the main avenue. I thought me doing the purchasing would give me the feel-good points for the month. I had hoped that it would prevent me from getting another notebook for myself. Or so I thought.

I still have a couple of unused notebooks lined up for use. My stock  would cover the entire 2014. Heck, even 2015’s entries. Still, when I saw this particular set of bound square pages, I had to check the price. For PhP 150, it felt like a good buy at the time. Now, I’m really more worried about this craze for notebooks than the purchase’s effect on the week’s budget.

If this was a test for self-control, I failed miserably. I’m not even sure I’d do better at mustering some level of restraint over acquiring notebooks.

Been to a lot of meetings lately so we’re back with the swirls. I do pay attention during meetings. I just happen to enjoy the swirls in between notes, which is why I make it a point to sit at the the back of the room. That way, the swirling would go unnoticed. Last Friday’s  meeting  doodle made my head throb. Not the best state when  one’s trying (cramming really) to meet the deadlines.

Reworked the meeting swirls into something relaxed (?).



There’s been talk about using glasses at the office. Considering that we’re at the busiest part of the semester – for students and teachers – I’m not sure if the cloudy filter in my eyesight with the unwanted (and uncontrolled) zooming in and out of my vision is just caused by stress or if I should go have my eyes checked.

Dreading the thought of having to wear glasses 😐 I have just spent the past two weeks making fun of the eldest sister who finally succumbed to wearing glasses after putting it of for years because it made her feel old!)
