Here we are, the last challenge. Finally! Haha! Geez! Given that I was so busy juggling work and mommy life and personal life, I don’t think I have the time for hobbies anymore. When I was a kid though, I like crafts. I do crochet and knitting (which I never really totally got the hang of) but I think most of the time, I was doing cross-stitching. Then some time in college, I got hooked to friendship bracelets. I made a few for my Mom’s Korean students at one time, too. 😀 There was a time that I wanted to […]
Blog Challenge – Day 30: What’s Something Not Many Know?
Okay, day 30 challenge is being done one day late and I have the perfect reason why it is so. I was having severe migraine attacks yesterday and it was no fun at all. On and off pain I felt so I slept most of the day and night yesterday. Anyway, I am not really sure if I will answer this question. If I write something down, then that would mean that everybody else will know what not many knew. Get the point? For so this challenge, I would say that there are a quite a few things that only […]
Blog Challenge – Day 29: Are You a Lefty or a Righty?
This is an easy challenge. 😀 When I was a baby, according to my Mom, I was a lefty. Something I got from my Dad. He was a lefty, too. My Mom is a righty. When I was a toddler or I think a pre-schooler, my Mom was trying to teach me how to write and she was having a hard time teaching me how to hold the pencil because I was a lefty. So, for her to be able to teach me properly, she trained me to be a righty. When I learned about that during my grade school years, […]
Blog Challenge – Day 28: Top 5 Moments in Your Life
This is the moment When all I’ve done All of the dreaming and scheming and screaming become one This is the day See it sparkle and shine When all I’ve lived for Becomes mine And that’s how the song goes… LOL! Hmmm… When you say moment, is this akin to achievement of sorts? Probably yes, eh? I don’t really count moments in my life or rank them based on the best one. So for this, let me try to dig through my scattered brain and see what we can come up with. This is not ranked so I am just […]
Blog Challenge – Day 27: Something You Miss
I brought the little boy home to the mountain city and as I type this, I am already in the bus waiting for it to bring me back to the big metro. So, if you ask now, I haven’t left yet but I miss my little Z. 🙁 It’s going to be another long week before I get to see him. *Sigh*. Well, I miss a lot of things. I miss the impulsive roadtrips, I miss my night outs, I miss spending time with my little boy. Yep, it will always go back to that. Before I had my son, […]
Blog Challenge – Day 26: A Difficult Time in Your Life
Before I became a Mom, I thought that the most difficult time in my life was when I lost my Dad. Before that, I thought that the most difficult time was getting the job that I really want (well, ideal job, that is. Then reality came knocking. Haha!). All that faded when I became a Mom and the excitement and joy I’ve felt as a first time Mom was immediately snuffed out of me when I had to rush my son to the emergency room at just 4 days old then again at three weeks old. During my son’s first […]
Blog Challenge – Day 25: Your Favorite Recipe & Comfort Food
It has been a very long week and I am so glad that it is now the weekend. This week’s weather was alternating between gloomy and rainy. I think it was just this afternoon that the sun came out. Well, what would you expect? It’s July. It’s the rainy season in this side of the world. And during cold, rainy days, I would just want to crawl into bed with a bowl of hot soup and a good book. Oh wait, that would had been what I’d be doing if I was all alone. 🙂 But since I now have a […]
Blog Challenge – Day 24: Three Things – 2 True and 1 False
Yikes. With all the truths that I’ve been spilling out on this blog, it becomes hard to really come up with something untrue anymore without revealing something else with a false statement. So how do I come up with this. Hmmm. Not so easy. LOL! Let’s see here. I guess I will just come up with three things and it will be up to you, my dear readers, to identify which are true and which is false. Not that I will be confirming if your guesses are correct, anyway. 😀 So, here’s the three things: As a kid, I hated […]
Blog Challenge – Day 23: What’s Your Schedule Like?
Crazy. That’s the word that can best describe my current schedule. I have two kinds of schedule: 1) when my son is with me and 2) when my son is not with me. When my son is with me, I wake up very early to give him his milk. That’s about 6-7 in the morning. Then I take a short nap while he plays beside me. Then I get up and prepare his meal, feed him then bathe him. Then we play again. Then he takes his morning nap. I take a nap as well before I start preparing for […]
Blog Challenge – Day 22: What You Want to Do for a Living
Another day is over. Well, work day that is. I’ve been through three calls and one long list (VERY long) of items that I needed to review that I was already getting cross-eyed with all the rows and columns of the spreadsheet I was working on. *Sigh* I have been thinking about this again lately, to be honest. Just a part of my annual self-assessment, I guess. When I was a kid, being a pediatrician was what I have wanted to do for a living. I love being around kids so I thought it would be fun to be able to help them. Then […]
