So you want to be a better writer?
It is November once again and you had promised yourself you will take part in this year’s NaNoWrimo…and you have not even drafted your first page of your “novel”.
You feel guilty and yet don’t do anything about it.
You casually hover over your blog and promise yourself to blog everyday if only to make up for missing out on the NaNoWriMo, in any case they say you write for the month and you are already late, you dutifully write on your blog, twice a week and you convince yourself, that’s better than most people.
However, the guilt feeling is not really going away and you really want to become a better writer,yet your drive seems to dwindle by the minute.
Your stats are lower than ever and you wish for things to look up..

Sometimes we feel like we are invisible,
Sometimes we feel like giving up
Sometimes we feel like nobody cares
Sometimes we feel so helpless
Sometimes we feel like giving up
Sometimes we feel stupid
Sometimes we feel low
Sometimes we feel let down
Sometimes we feel like crying
Sometimes we feel like we are drowning in sorrow
Sometimes we are afraid of making mistakes
Sometimes we want to be someone else
Sometimes we wish we were someone else!
And it is at these times that you are so close
To the real you…
By letting go of your emotions,
Riding in them
You will find yourself in a world deep within you
then you will understand
why you feel that sometimes!

I have always dreamed of studying abroad, I guess after graduating I could go and study somewhere far away from home I really liked the idea and I started checking what are the chances for studying in Asia and finding a job after graduation.
It looks like MBA programs in China or Singapore are affordable and there are jobs too. So I want to share this information with you, who knows maybe we will meet at the Xiamen University?
But to make things clear you should realize the price of MBAs in the USA, we all hear about MBAs with $ 80K per year tuition there are also cheap MBAs with good ranking and the cheapest programs are around $7500. Keep it in mind when reading about the schools in Asia.
The Asia region boasts several recognized and accredited MBA schools. College tuition ranges from $8,500 to $55,000 (2013/14).
Living and studying in Singapore gives you a diversified perception of Southeast Asia.
If you don’t like to study another language, then Singapore is definitely the best option for you. Citizens speak English in every day life, and all of the street signs and anything else are in the English language.
Basically, what appeals to employers typically, is whether you have substantial experience in your field.

Does smiling come natural to you?
Do you just enjoy that beautiful feeling in your gut when you smile?
Research now shows that smiling started in the womb. Before you even screamed your way into this world.
I read this interesting post by TimeThief and she has shared cool facts on the power of smiling. No wonder children smile as much as they do.
A smile is like a master-key. It opens all doors of the heart. And most of all it’s a language that is understood everywhere in the world.
As a child, I lived in a small village, everyone knew each other. And if I met anyone on the road it was only natural to smile at them or just say a simple hi.Moving to the city was a complete culture shock at first.
No one smiled at each other, and saying hi to a random stranger was not a cool thing to do. City people have a way of diluting the good thing.

We missed our flight going to Cebu via Cebu Pacific because our flight was scheduled at 9 pm but we arrived at the airport 30 minutes before the flight (due to unavoidable circumstances). Based on our previous trips, Cebu Pacific usually allowed passengers to check-in 30 minutes before the trip.
So, we were confident enough to make that trip, but we were surprised to know that they already closed the flight and that they let the chance passengers in. Unfortunately, that was the last flight for the day and that the next available flight would be on a Sunday.
We kinda panicked and checked out other airlines to book for the earliest flight the next day because we don’t want to miss the tour as well. So, we called out every domestic airlines we could possibly think of. Also checked out fares and availability through Marc’s laptop via Globe visibility (Thank God he brought the laptop with him).
After an hour of calling and surfing, Marc finally booked us a flight for 8am the next day via Air Philippines. It was twice the price difference from our one way ticket to Cebu, but it didn’t matter anyways for as long as we get to Cebu the next day, money wasn’t a problem. The only catch was, we had to get the tickets 3 hours before the trip.

If you woke up today at the same time you did yesterday, begin the same routine, eat the same type of foods, do the same kind of work for the same amount of time, watch the same amount of TV, go to bed at the same time.
Or lay in bed thinking the same thoughts, after a day of “wishing things were different”, until you fall asleep to dream the same kind of dreams, then you will get the same results every day.
You might as well be Phil Connors. Everyday might as well be Groundhog Day. It’s amazing how easy it is to dismiss a simple concept like this.
And I’ve dismissed it plenty, lately. I caught myself having one too many Phil Connors days (and weeks), recently. The concept I’m talking about is: Wanting different results, but doing nothing differently.

Do dreams fascinate you in any way?
…Dreams can be such mysteries.
Have you woken up in the morning and could not even remember what you dreamed, the previous night, yet you have a feeling that the dream was good?
Have you ever woken up from a dream and was so glad to realize that it was just a dream, and gave a very big sigh of relief?
My favorite one is, have you ever woken up after a delicious dream, and just wished with all your heart that you could just go back to sleep, and continue with the dream but you just could not..
