Catching Up!!!

Finally, after 8 nagging phone calls to their customer service hotline and 3 actual visits to their office, Smartbro got us our internet connection back. I was so nonplussed at why it took so long to tansfer the connection to our new place. Geezus, it has been 1 month and all the while I felt so incomplete and sick of being cut off from blogging. I was even angry at times, almost blaming dada for it.

Well anyway, I say let bygones be bygones! There is so much I have to write about and I can't begin to imagine where to start. So much happened without me taking tabs of it. Now I have to rely on my rusty memory for the telling.

We had our annual examinations earlier and part of the test is visual acuity. Am sure I failed on this one as I have astigmatism and my sight has never been at its sharpness. So a friend I met online suggested I get Great Eyeglasses For Less, they're of good quality according to her and the Variable Dimension Frames From Zenni made them so fashionable that Zenni Optical was on FOX news! Can you imagine that? She asked me and I was like so long as they have pink on stock. Why not? Hehehe can'r wait to see more of Zenni on Fox.

Advice on Debt and Such  

Posted by soreal

Can you imagine yourself in a debt free life? Well if you think that is hard then just imagine a life where you can cough up all your payables in one low monthly payment? That means you can save on your time and gas for all the driving you need to do but those are not the only benefits.
So what exactly is debt consolidation? This is a good start to having a debt free life and avoiding bankruptcy on its tracks. Dept consolidators will work on your behalf to negotiate a reasonable amount you pay to your debtors every month. This will be for your payday loans, personal loans, car loans and every other type of loan.
It’s depressing and frustrating to find yourself in a situation where you owe your creditors so much and you know that what you pay them every month is only enough to cover for the interest. You are trying and working hard to wriggle yourself free but you just can not seem to get out of this financial quicksand. There is hope though, if you are not even sure where to start then talk to an expert about your situation and both of you should be able to come up with something or you should at least get your confidence back after the session.
If you need more information and if you think you need the assistance of debt companies then get a free debt consolidation advice right away. There are several organizations that can assist you and give you free advice to get you back on the right track where you no longer have to live in fear of the letters you get in you mail. You can even get this type of service online as well by just searching for it in google.

Whats Your Credit Score??  

Posted by soreal

People these days hardly pay with cash; there is plastic for everything. Personally although I prefer cash; it’s just not safe to go around shopping with all that green stuff inside your purse. What if you get mugged? Then its goodbye whatever amount of money you have with you, I should know. If your card gets stolen, you can simply notify your credit card company about it and it will be practically useless. Well imagine how ridiculous you will look checking into a fancy hotel paying cash. With Plastic, it is simple, convenient and hassle free.
Credit cards give consumers the purchasing power but it is also a major reason why people are in debt and with bad credit. People tend to forget that when they use their cards, they still have to actually pay that amount with interest. Too bad because your credit report is always a prerequisite when you try to get a loan, no matter what kind of loan that is.
Not sure what your credit score is? You are not alone in that area but d that should not be a problem because getting a free credit report is as easy as going online, clicking and typing. Once you know your score then you can start doing the works to improve it. To improve credit is not really difficult so long as your know your current standing, it is a requirement.
Did I say improving you credit is easy? Yes I did and that’s true. The difficult part is maintaining that already good credit. One trick is always setting a limit to how much you will spend for shopping in one billing cycle. Once you determined the amount, stick to it. It may seem painful in the beginning but later on you will be so used to it its like clockwork.

Own Domain  

Posted by soreal

Looking for a good web hosting company nowadays is a bit tough seeing that there's a lot of them emerging in the market. Being a novice I really don't have much knowledge as to what I need and where to get it from, well basically all I want is to get a domain name of my own that's it. Simple right? So apart from looking for kimonos on the net I tried reading various web hosting articles to try to understand what am getting myself into, so I've read a lot which confuses me all the more. *sigh* Why can't everything be so simply laid out? Lol ... if I set up another blogger account and purchase the domain name from go daddy would that be any easier? Oh well ... the more I googled for web hosting reviews to read the more info I get and each review site seems to have its own list of top 10 best hosting something.Kinda confusing really but all in good time, am not in a hurry anyways to setup my own domain.

Debt and All  

Posted by soreal

I've known of quite a number of people who are struggling between debts. It sometimes puzzle how they manage to juggle from one loan to the other, take for instance I know of a friend who's payroll goes directly to his credit card bills plus the loans on the side. Sometimes I wonder how he gets by but I think its goes to down to how you manage to make do with whats left after all the deductions. Run across a site during the course of my wandering in the web of a debt consolidation loans site ... its a first for me to hear such a term and was a bit intrigued by what it means. Based on what I've read its intended for credit cards, medical bills and collection accounts. This is targeted to users or consumers who are having difficulty meeting monthly payment requirements or are unable to reduce their balances should apply. Should he apply for this type of program? Maybe its worth mentioning ... but wouldn't it hurt his ego?

I find it awkward discussing other people's finances but he's a close friend of mine and though I cannot help him pay off his debts but at least in a way I'd be able to help him find ways on eliminating them one by one. Now am wondering if plans like this or services like this exist in the country, there's even a government debt elimination program that of which am not acquainted with the details but just the same its targeted to those who need help with their finances. Or maybe I can ask him to attend debt management plan before he starts getting another loan. Whew!!! Seems like he's style is to get another loan to pay his existing loan, which I find strange ... don't understand it really.

What's The Area Code?  

Posted by soreal

There's this company in the US that has an online store selling various cosmetics and ladies accessories. You know me, I love to shop online so I toyed around the site for a bit looking at this and that when I ran across a pair of elegant red boots just right about my size so I checked on the company's contact detail so I could give them a ring and ask bout the details of the item I wanna buy, shipping cost and all that. was disappointed when the phone number listed doesn't include the area code. Duh!!! It did list their physical address though which was my basis in googling, good thing there's a search area codes site that helped me out in my dilemma.

Still No Internet  

Posted by soreal

I was wondering what is taking SmartBro too effin long to work on transferring our internet connection to the new place we are now living. So dada and I went to check the status of our connection in their office only to be surprised at what the record showed. The technicians have been trying to call us but apparently the number was out of coverage area. Strange because we are so within the coverage area where we live right now. Any sensible person would ask what number they have just so to verify and so I did. I was so embarrased when I realized that I gave them my old number when we signed the papers last week hihihi stupid, stupid!

So right now, I'm blogging from work! Orly is down hahaha

For Your Cats Only  

Posted by soreal

Cat flaps may not be popular in the Philippines but in countries like the UK and the US, many cat owners find it to be a convenience for them and their pet cats. Cat flap is a hinged flap set into a door, wall or window which allows cats to enter and exit your home on their own without any human assistance to open and close the door after them. So they can come and go without bothering their owners. However, simple flaps like the weighted ones are not as secure as a microchip cat flap. Thanks to the advancement of technology, microchip cat flaps like Pet Porte microchip cat flaps have features like a light sensor which detects daylight and will automatically lock the door at night which will ensure that your cat will not leave the house at night. Petporte microchip cat flap has a microchip sensor as well which will scan for the cat or the microchip that you have programmed into the unit which will unlock the door for your cat’s entry or exit. So if a cat or any kind of animal tries to get into the house and does not have this chip then it won’t be able to get into the house. This security feature can be of real use especially if you live near the woods for it will not just secure the house from stray cats it will also secure the house from animals like raccoons. In the city, it can also protect the house from burglars for it is not like those weighted flaps which can be lifted by just about anybody or anything like the wind. I could just imagine the noise that it will make if you leave near the beach. This is also a good protection for your cats and their especially if they are being followed by other cats.

Playing Online  

Posted by soreal

The fact that I've been spending quite a lot of time online doing my shopping for these fashionable kimonos is getting to my nerves ... or am I hallucinating? Lol ... anyways am finding the what I consider spam emails I received daily quite a bit useful. Lately my bulk folder has been flooded with adverts from various online casinos from all parts of the world. What amazes me is the fact that almost all of these casinos are based in the US but still accepts international users. There are rooms for Texas casino players or rooms per state but they're not strictly for players from those states. Intriguing is how a couple of veteran players earn from it ... so its like earning while playing. Isn't that amazing? Am interested in learning how to play the roulette and maybe poker. Oh well one game at a time.

Moving Out  

Posted by soreal

Today we move to another place. Dada is still asleep and is not in a hurry in any way. I understand, I mean we have everything boxed but I am in no hurry to leave as well. The landlady is a really warm person and is already a friend that is why this is kind of difficult for us (sigh). The most difficult part for me was telling Te Nene that we are moving out but it turned out better than I expected because she is such an angel.

So why move out?

Because it is not working out for us here. I mean the place is great and all but it turned us into lazy hogs. All we do is sleep and eat and the only exercise we ever get is climbing the stairs up the rooftop. We have gained so much weight the moment we got here huhuhu we hardly get anything done because we keep putting it off. Like how many times have we planned on going out to do this and that but ended up sleeping the entire day instead? I'm such a lazy hog I don't even go out to shop anymore, I have sucked into the online shopping fever. I have nothing against online shopping, I love it but it certainly robbed the fun out of shopping, the part where you have to actually fit into the clothes and shoes before you actually pay.

I'm not even going to get started with Dada hihi

I will write to let you all know about the new place we are moving into. For now, I'll let the keyboard rest.

Give Back  

Posted by soreal

I don’t know about the rest of the population but I’m a firm believer of giving to the less fortunate. That is why I admire those wealthy people who give out to those who have less in life. I don’t even care what their intentions are in joining foundations such the one headed by Jim Piccolo, what is important is that these people are making a difference in the lives of those they have helped.

Big celebrity names and businessmen all forget their differences in order to help out kids in Africa and such. The Piccolo Foundation headed by Jim Piccolo believes in giving back and paying forward if you are blessed. I would like to quote this message from him, “I encourage each person to dream not just about the things they want and the person they want to become, but about the things each of them can do to positively impact others.”

Successful Nouveau Rich investors have joined Jim Piccolo in making an impact in the community. So what if you are not as rich as these personalities, remember that money is not the only thing you can donate. You can volunteer and give your time to others if money should be an issue. I remember that warm and fulfilled feeling I got when the children we have helped during out annual outreach looked me in the eyes and said, “Thank you” not a feeling one feels everyday.

Team Potluck  

Posted by soreal

I have finally gone out with my team again. It's been awhile and I didn't realize I miss everyone. Yeah we do have fun in training and the people I directly interact with are fun people but I miss people in Ops. I miss my TL and my teammates. I wanted to say no to the team potluck last Friday, in fact I think I did back out at the last minute but Wena convinced me to go haha so I did and I'm glad. I just hated leaving them so early because I still had a class. I have posted a snippet of the affair.

Don't Be A Victim  

Posted by soreal

You have read my other post about Nouveau Rich University as well as several other articles about it from other authors. It is all hyped up that you probably think there has to be a Nouveau Rich Scam out there. Just like with every genuine invention out there having a counterfeit version somewhere, so is Nouveau Rich. As a matter of fact, Nouveau Rich Scam is highly documented to steer Nouveau Rich investors away from it.

When you hear a good business proposal, don’t just get sucked in right away. Do your homework; ask around if you have to. Learn as much as you can first before letting out a huge investment that way every amount you seed out gets planted in fertile grounds. A good investment is only as good as the enterprise you invested into.

With the sum of money involve, one can only imagine how agonizing it must be to a Nouveau Rich Scam victim and I’m sure nobody wants to be that unlucky. Surely anyone can write about anything based on their personal experience and such so always look for facts in what you read. Fraud is everywhere so do not allow yourself to get ripped off.

Strictly Business  

Posted by soreal

What does it take to be young and successful today? Back then I think a person has to exert twice as much effort as one would now, but then again that is just my theory and I could be wrong. The reason I said that is because today, we have a stronger and more efficient support system in the form of Nouveau Riche University. It should be easier for us then, right?

Any business magazine I read gives the message that today is the best time to get into business. But for someone who does not have a degree in business, it can be so daunting that even entertaining such thoughts, is already considered an uncalculated risk. How can someone not get lost with all the things that need focusing on? Well, Nouveau Riche University helps potential business partners see the bigger picture without forgetting how to read the fine print as well.

Nouveau Riche University is the best place for an entrepreneur to be at in order to prepare for his ordeal. It pays to be ready and when there is money and time investment involve, one should never be caught off guard. Have the tools, system and discipline you need to be part of a strong community of successful entrepreneurs.

So after I found out about my PR dropping to zero yesterday, I got so restless that I ended up buying a year's subscription at 3ix and I also paid for my own domain. I have everything ready to go except for one thing, HOW DO I MIGRATE MY BLOGGER CONTENT??? I'm sure there is someone out there who is an expert on this stuff and I badly need help. If you think you can help me, please leave a comment and I'll get back to you. Thank you so much!

My PR Dropped!!!  

Posted by soreal

Sigh! I didn't notice until this morning that my blog's PR dropped to an offensive ZERO. Well what can I say, from PR4 when I just started out to PR2 and now this. Oh well, I have nobody else to blame but me. The past few months I have been so hooked with ebay and online shopping that I hardly have time to hop around blogs, write posts and I haven't even been paying attention to tasks. It was all buy this, bid for that, etc...
I guess it didn't really matter till now huhu anyway with my PR down to zero, this is a good time to finally purchaase my own domain. I have been planning to for awhile but I've heard of how it's going to drag your PR down so I have been putting it off. Now however, I can't think of any reason why I shouldn't get my own domain. I just have to put my thinking cap on so I can come up with a short and catchy name.

Be an Accountant in California  

Posted by soreal

Working outside the country to earn dollars and have so much more extra to help our family while also making our dreams come true is something most of us are coveting for, well that’s what I’m coveting for at least. Not everyone gets lucky and live the life they want for themselves and their family. Some stay and live the life they’ve always lived. Yet there are those who stayed and still lived the life they wanted. At any rate, one has to make decision.

As for me, I suck at making decisions because I hate the pressure. When I’m faced with something that leaves me totally confused, I resort to something else. I interview 10 random friends and base my decision from them; that way if anything goes wrong then I can always go back to them. It’s a twisted way to think but hey, that is not how I do it all the time though.

With the different jobs available to those who willingly apply for it and those who deserve it, all we need to do really is make that move. That is what my accountant uncle did, he made the move to leave and work at a greener pasture. According to him though, the pasture may be greener there but it is just as hard to plow. He was able to find his career in one the Accounting Jobs in California. So if you are a qualified accountant just like him then you can find accounting jobs in California and earn as much or even more. As what my uncle always say, “California is where an accountant should be”.

Well I’m not an accountant and I don’t think I will ever be one but I do have several friends who are and this is good news for them.

From Kawasan And Back (updated with pix)  

Posted by soreal

Some of my friends and I went to Kawasan Falls to celebrate my 25th Birthday yesterday. To those who have been to that place, you would know that there is a major hiking spree involve. It's my 2nd time there, the 1st time was with Wena when we went there right after shift and I ended up with no undies on my way home hahaha

There were 7 of us yesterday, Dada, Wena, Eds, Michy, Mik, Kim and yourstruly. Everyone got wet and wild except for Mik and his sister Kim, I think they just went there to take unadulterated pictures of themselves hihihi

Eds was the official photographer of the group and I'll just grab pictures from his site the moment he posts it. Wena and Mik gave me a purple elephant as a present, so cute! It has a really long name so changed it to Wik2x hihihi in honor of the parents (Wena & Mike). You might be wondering what dada gave me; he gave me a lovely Timex watch because I don't have a watch for the reason that I use my phone to check the time.

We packed up our things and started hiking back to the road at 4pm yesterday. Got back to Cebu at 8pm and we were all so tired because the ride home was a killer! The moment I got home I went to bed right away to just relax and then shower later but when I woke up it was already 6am hahaha

I Want a Violin!  

Posted by soreal

There is something enchanting and haunting about the sound a violin produces. Listening to it is like being in a trance and a pleasant one. Must be interesting to play it with eyes closed and just get devoured in the music. (sigh) I want a violin and I want to be able to learn how to make beautiful music with it. I want it tomorrow for my birthday but dada already got me my birthday present huhuhu guess i'll have to buy myself a present then. Too bad I already know what I'm buying so there is absolutely no way to surprise myself sad!

My Ugliest Moment!  

Posted by soreal

Chickenpox is a highly contagious illness caused by primary infection with varicella zoster virus (VZV). It generally begins with conjunctival and catarrhal symptoms and then characteristic spots appearing in two or three waves, mainly on the body and head rather than the hands and becoming itchy raw pockmarks, small open sores which heal mostly without scarring.

It was December 05, the worst Christmas ever! I was 22 then, a bad age to get hit with chickenpox. I kept telling my friends here in Cebu of how ugly my face was and how I felt so disgusting. How I was looked upon with disgust (sigh), I didn’t even want to look at the mirror. I was so angry and frustrated at that time because it was like God was punishing me. I’m one of those people who take really good care of their faces so my face was my pride…then comes the Chicken Pox.

When I lost my phone back then, I thought I also lost the evidence that I did get chicken pox. Thank God I found the disk where I backed up most photos from my phone before.

I never thought my face would ever get back to that state it was before the scabs and blisters but it did. You can’t even tell I had chicken pox. EXCUSE ME FOR POSTING MY UGLY PIC but I’m doing this so that people will take chicken pox seriously and to show that you can get this illness at an adult age and still rise above it more beautiful!

The S Talk!  

Posted by soreal

Is there an easier, less uncomfortable way of talking to your boo about sex? About the things you want to try out when your boo is less experimental than you? There is none. You just have to say it, the longer you wait to say it, the more complicated it becomes.

It’s not healthy to just keep your desires bottled up. There is nothing wrong with a little one-on-one, deep down honest conversation. Your boo should be man enough to take it, if not, that doesn’t give you the right to go look for what’s missing in your relationship somewhere else.

Women are more complicated and harder to please in bed compared to men. So it’s not really guys' fault if they sometimes get lost with all the buttons to push but they should at least be willing to learn. After all, there is no manual that comes with a woman’s body. Men should be open to learning from what the woman is saying and what she's not.

Variation is the key. Who cares if you go dress up like a fireman when once you get down to it, you still do it the same way you’ve done it since time immemorial. Try the union of the frog, oyster, goddess, posture of the stars or anything new for that matter. In love-making, it’s how you get there that matters.

One more thing, guys, you don’t have to take home the gold medal everytime. You can go 2nd or 3rd place and take home the silver or bronze medal. I’m sure your girl will appreciate it!

Sleep Dilemma  

Posted by soreal

My body is still in morning shift mode these days even though its been over 2 weeks since I worked during mornings. I better start repairing my body clock. It would be so embarrassing to doze off during the T3 next week.

Back then I was so nocturnal that during my days off I still am wide awake and restless at night so we always end up watching movies or going to Fuente for siomai hihihi but now, I give out an involuntary yawn at work and whats worst is that I have to do it with my mouth closed. It would be so unbecoming for a trainer to be seen yawning by the trainees.

So just for kicks I tried googling my way to not falling asleep and I was amazed at how little is written about it because most articles ever written talk about how to fall asleep. I found something useful that talks about how not to fall asleep in wikihow though and I'll post the excerpts here but for a full article just click the link.

How Not To Fall Asleep

1) Use your sense of smell. A strong scent, good or bad, can make you more alert very quickly. Holistic healthcare providers often recommend essential oils of the following plants to stimulate the nervous system and reduce fatigue (open the bottle and take a big whiff when you're feeling drowsy).
2) Use acupressure. Massaging any of the following points will improve circulation and ease fatigue
3) Take a power nap. If you have the time, sleeping for just 15-20 minutes can increase your alertness by leaps and bounds if you have a cup of coffee (or any other form of caffeine) right before you fall asleep.
4) Expose yourself to bright light, preferably natural daylight. Your body's internal clock, its circadian rhythms, are regulated by your exposure to sufficient light. Even if you're in an environment where there's artificial light, brighter is better. If you can step outside (even on a cloudy day) or look out the window for a full minute, you'll be more alert. Wherever you work, see if you can replace the light fixture or add a lamp that will brighten your workspace.
5) Keep yourself uncomfortable.
6) Exercise at your computer. Just because you're sitting down doesn't mean you can't use your muscles.
7) Avoid a full stomach. Munch on snacks all day, rather than having a big meal. The key is to not get a spike of sugar intake (followed by the inevitable crash). The same goes for caffeine. Break your consumption down into small doses.
8) Listen to music that's energizing to you; if possible, dance or sing along, even if you just bob your head or hum. Music that's irritating or jarring to you can also work. Just make sure to use headphones so you don't disturb your co-workers.
9) Ask your co-workers to scare you. If they have a sense of humor, they'll delight in finding ways to pop out from behind your desk or around the corner, and it'll get your adrenaline rushing. Laughter is also a great way to fight drowsiness.

Totally Repackaged  

Posted by soreal

Lately I have been trying to evaluate my relationship with dada. I should start evaluating it and not just take it by face value. So what was I like before him? An interesting question..makes me want to interview people who knew me then so as to avoid being bias. Since I don’t have the luxury to do so though, let me just walk you through.

I was not someone who thinks of the consequences of my actions. I do things because I wanted to do it and because I enjoy doing it with utter disregard of how it may make the other person feel. I never admit I’m at fault in a fight. So even if it was my mistake, you still awe me an apology (something I inherited from my mom). During arguments, I always have the last word. Meaning that anything you say can and will be used against you so your only other choice really is to let me win. Hey I’m just focusing on the bad side for effect but I do have several good qualities as well ^_^.

Now with dada, I actually care about what he feels. I try to watch out when I’m being unfair and inconsiderate.
Although there are times when I miss out since I’m still learning, at least I’m in the right track.
With him I’m learning how to become a better person. Now, I have a clear definition of what is right and what is wrong.
Back then right and wrong were obscured in the background by my selfishness and vanity.
It feels different not going out with friends to wallow in carnal pleasure that often leads to unsavory outcomes.
It's odd that I hear a moral alarm sounding off from inside me whenever I'm about to do something out of character.

Oooppsss! Look what the wind brought in, Dada's dad! I better pause for now.

Old Photos  

Posted by soreal

I was cleaning out my drawer when I happened upon old disks that looked vaguely familiar. So what I did was checked the content in my PC and eureka! I found tons of photos of me inside haha and I thought these pics got lost when we moved. So let me show the proof of how I love taking pictures of myself even way back then. Let me show you some proof!!^_^

A Case of KK  

Posted by soreal

I seem to have nothing else to do these days but check ebay and multiply for Kimono and Kaftan dresses. Dada always asks, “Don’t you have enough kimono dresses already?” Well yes until I see another one that I just must have ^_^

I like the fact that I can never go wrong with this type of cut. Just imagine sporting a baby bump in a cool kimono or kaftan instead of the typical maternity dress. Another great idea would be to go party wearing a kimono or kaftan inspired gown grrrr!! I like pairing mine with gladiator sandals, so fab!

I’m even thinking of learning how to sew because this type of dress can be expensive and I always buy mine online. I could save so much if I just buy a nice cloth and “CREATE”. Plus I can customize the colors, the cut and just experiment. Maybe I could even start my own line of kimonos and kaftans. Well just another item to add in my growing to-do list haha

Ok I better hit the shower now and prepare for work. It’s still at 10pm but I have not decided what to wear yet haha I’ll see you again soon people!

P.S. I’m posting some of the dresses I found online for inspiration.

My Calling? So It Seems...

So in case you might all be wondering if I won the Ebay bid, I did but only for the 2nd and 3rd dress. It’s alright because those 2 are my fave anyway.

Well that’s not really why I’m writing now. Oh my PC is back up now in case you are all wondering, “where is she blogging from now?” but that’s not the reason why I’m writing now either.

I want to tell you about Wave 37. This is rather late because they all graduated from training 2 weeks ago but with my PC being busted and all at that time, I just had to wait. Wave 37 is what I can consider my first real class because I didn’t have anybody with me to co-faci and there were 20 of them. The first thing I noticed when I walked into the room on the 1st day was, “Oh dear, this is a rowdy pack”. And I was right but there was never a dull moment with them. I guess we complimented each other. I believe that training shouldn’t be boring and so did they.

I must have done something right because they all passed PST weeh! And I felt like a proud mama. I was so moved when during the last day of training, they gave me this hand-made ceramic Madagascar frame kind-of with their messages for me on the back. I’ve never felt this fulfilled with work before and it made me realize that this is my calling. It’s not taking calls but training people. Seeing them now taking calls makes all the “dailies” seem worth it.

So even with a busted computer I'm still abe to shop online (evil laugh) ebay is not blocekd from work so I shop from work when I have the time and I'm proud to say that I'm currently winning. I'm just waiting for the time to run out but I already made a maximum bid on 3 of the items I must have because it's my birthday this month. Even if it's not my birthday though I still will place a max bid for those items. I told dada I'll cry 24x7 if I lose the bid and he replied with a heartfelt LOL..ugh! men!!! There are just things that a girl must have eventhough she doesn't really need them because it feels a necessity for the timebeing.

I'm confident I'm gonna win for shizzle!!! Here let me show you the dresses ^_^

Well guys I miss all of you and I mean it!! I miss checking my blog and staying updated with the going-ons in your lives haha am back after what seemed like an eternity of blogging hiatus. Well it was just 2 weeks but oh boy I have so much to write about because of all the crazy stuff that happened. Anyway, let me start with why you have not felt my presence for sometime.

My PC got busted again after we just had it fixed so you can imagine how vexed I must have been right? So vexed the last thing I wanted was to have it fixed again ggggrrrrr!!! I just wanted to throw the useless thing outside the window or have a 12-wheeler truck run it over.

I was so vexed I didn't even want to blog because I was feeling too negative. Although in anger comes inspiration to write, I didn't want to be under its influence when I blog well at least whenever I can help it.

My PC is still busted and I have no intentions of having it fixed. It serves another purposse now. It's my stress PC. I punch it, kick it, cuss it, etc hahaha very therapeutic.

In the neighborhood where my friend Tedd grew up he said drugs, weeds and whatever you call it is rampant … even before he started high school he already smoked by the time he finished high school he was what people call a drug addict. From syrups, marijuanas and cocaine … you name it he’s tried it … the sad thing about it is he knew what’s wrong with him but he can’t seem to stop. No, in his own words, he doesn’t have the strength to stop … he cannot deny the strong craving … so day in day out he did everything he can … stealing … robbery … everything just so he can buy whatever he needs to buy to satisfy his craving. He has grown thin, was never able to enroll for college, sunken eyes and cheeks. No longer the cute guy next door, but all that changed after 4 years of misery … at the age of 23 he was admitted for drug treatment and intervention somewhere in a place offering solitude and natures best.. The location, our support, he’s will to overcome it … made the treatment smooth sailing.

Now we have a totally reformed Tedd, healthier than he was 4 years ago, happier than he ever was. He’s gone back to painting and arts … and to writing too, the staff at the local drug rehab center has been very understanding and kind … making the place an easy environment for him. Can’t wait to see him when he’s drug detoxification is done … after all the pain he has gone through its high time for him to be with us … the people who cared and loved him the most.

Can’t wait for you to come home bro …

Richie Rich

Isn’t it inspiring when someone you know as part of a lower socioeconomic class crosses over to the world of wealth and class all of a sudden with the little stroke of luck and hard work? It is something that I ultimately want to be a part of. Successful stories like this happen more commonly than we realize it. Nouveau Riche, as these people are called exist everywhere and as a matter of fact I personally know some individuals who make good examples. It’s not always easy to tell who will make it or not in this society but self-made individuals certainly make everything look possible.

Looking back in history and the abundant list of Nouveau Riche community, we can see a common denominator in all of them. They are all hard-working, ambitious and calculating. They usually reached their status in venturing to the business world and their risks have most definitely paid off big time.

Nouveau Riche University where participants will be provided with comprehensive training to pave the way for the self-made billionaires. Now is a good time as any to be successful.
