So it's 2018

And it's 2018 and back to blogging.

I've recently re-rediscovered this blog.

This epiphany came as I was preparing dinner (which will be fish and veggies and rice. Hey, I am Filipino. There's ALWAYS rice. ALWAYS.)  Oh, and also recent WiFi connection from Globe At Home.

Yes, you read it right. A recent connection. Hubby and I have been conscious about exposing our kids to the world wide web that we didn't have WiFi for the longest time. But this does not mean we have been in the dark ages. My phone has mobile data which the kids can connect to for homework and a little bit of social media. If they're behaved. If.

Alas, that power over the internet is now gone.

But this decision to finally get connected is good. The kids are in high school and doing more school work online and we've run out of excuses to say no.

So here I am. Hopefully back for a longer haul. So help me, blog god.

Scroll Shocker

The new Facebook interface surprised many of its users, including myself.

Imagine my horror when I saw the ticker at the right of Facebook and didn't know how to use it.

As a technosavage, newly Internet-connected person, it came as a complete SHOCK!

Word of the week: Scroll.

What the...

Okay. It's been years since my last post. And, quite frankly, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that my blog is still here.

There have been major changes in the Blogger interface and I'm muddling through it... at a snail's pace.

It's been so long that I even forgot my password!

New Year, New You, Anyone?

Happy new year, everyone. Is is still new?

It's the ninth day of the new year. So it's been 8 days since we all broke our new year's resolutions? Haha.

Yes, I am also guilty of making a couple of resolutions. It is, of course, the new year. It's almost a crime not to have one.

And, yes, I have already broken some of them, too. =(

Just a couple of things bug me, though.

Why does it have to be new year's when we vow to make ourselves in to the New Us? What's wrong with Jan 18 or any arbitrary date? And what is so wrong with the Old Us that we need to make a New Us? Can't it be A-Slightly-Better Us or Just-Recently-Improved Us?

I guess the trick to treat every day like it's the new year. Another chance. A clean slate.

If that is the case, then it's still Happy New Year, everyone!

Starting Over

The new year is just around the corner, just a few days away from the start of a new decade.
The looming 2010 made me look back on things that happened this year, both good and bad. And what mistakes I did to contribute to make things bad. In short, I am doing my resolutions.

Okay, so I do them every year. What will make 2010 different from the rest? Honestly, I am not sure. But isn't that the beauty of every new year? Or every day? We get to start over.

I am starting over on my resolutions. Off the top of my head (or recycled items of resolutions past) are:

1. Lose weight -- which is on the list every year. I have written my goal weight somewhere. I am still hopeful. =)

2. Exercise at least 30 minutes 3 times a week. Okay, I will finally rip out the plastic cover of my growing UNOPENED exercise DVD collection. Hubby will be so happy.

3. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.

4. Turn off the TV and Net more. Less media, less stress.

5. Read AND finish 15 books.

6. Learn a new language. I'm starting with Norwegian. My sister is in viking land and a willing mentor.

7. Have quiet time starting with 1o minutes daily.

8. Learn to bake. Sharpening the saw is always good.

9. Finish C0c0's big, yellow book.

10. Be more organized at home and with my time. Hubby will be happy with this, too.

11. Update my goal book.

12. Never be late for ANY appointment. Allocate time for traffic.

13. Learn Photoshop CS4. Thank you, JM.

14. Wake up early or earlier. Translation: Sleep earlier. Lights out at 10:30 pm?

These are just a few things. There are certainly more ideas floating in my head. Possibilities for 2010 are sprouting and ripe for the picking. I'm not about to let it waste by letting history repeat itself.

What are your resolutions for 2010?
