A Perfect Stress Reliever

A perfect stress-reliever.” That is how I described this photo when I first posted it on Facebook some months ago.

The post was liked by many. A lot of my friends wondered and some even thought she’s mine. Well, she was. But only at that moment. Her name is Jolie, my adorable niece and right now she’s miles away from me. She’s a year old  now and I’m looking forward to seeing her again this summer.

I had this photo along with many others with her and her older sister printed out and compiled. So every time they visit especially during summer if not Christmas season, they will have something to look at and somehow look back… and perhaps laugh at…. when they get a bit older.

It’s a different feeling indeed when you’re with a baby. They have this magic that turn things light especially when they show off some giggles, pose some grin and of course when sleeping soundly as this. But when they’re under stress, it’s a different story. 😀

Everything Happens for a Reason

For the first time I have shared my computer to someone who was a complete stranger to me. Below is a screenshot of my screen earlier. It’s a speed test site which I didn’t open myself but by someone whom I have only known a while ago and through Skype direct from Hongkong.

Nothing harm done, though. The lady on the other end simply did a technical check as part of the hiring process in relation to my application as an online English language teacher. It took her almost an hour to finish the checking. So, while waiting, I also took advantage of the time looking for audio technica headphones as it is one of the requirements when hired. However, my internet connection speed didn’t make it through the test. I was then  told that only DSL connections can get through.

I felt a bit sad over the fact that I can never get such type of connection from around here but on the other hand, I’m happy because I made it that far. I passed the initial phone interview as well as the language interview via Skype. If not for the technical side, I would have won the position.

Oh well… everything happens for a reason.

Week 4:Project 52 BLUE

So here’s the challenge for the week – something blue!

My colleagues at work and I made this headdress and forty nine others of it. It’ll be worn by our students who will be joining the “Sadsad sa Kadalanan”, a street dancing contest as one of the highlights during the annual celebration of our town’s Founding Anniversary. We have fifty participants. Only the male are going to wear the blue ones. All the rest will be wearing pink.

It’s a strenuous project and I’d say only those who have real patience can finish a piece.
