Life over the past days

It's been two weeks when I went back to teaching. Everything is manageable now except for the freelance works that I'm still struggling to finish. Speaking of freelance works, my past clients still left me hanging in the tree of uncertainty. I can really feel the impact of my little misfortune especially now that I'm going #BROKEbackmountain (as how me and my friends would exaggeratedly term the condition of feeling almost penniless). I'm painfully learning something from this experience... Right now, I think I need someone to peel a packaging tape and stick it on my mouth to stop me ranting.:D

Before I forget that it's still Beautiful Sunday, I should start by mentioning my current reads.

I'm still enjoying Jane Green's Bookends.
I got my copy for only Php 75 from Booksale. I'm enjoying Jane Green's writing style so I'm extending her to my iPad read.

Seductive legs? Yes, but this is not an adult fiction. :) It's on the contrary a witty and hilarious read that relates the struggles of a single and oversized woman who falls in love for.... Wait? Is this my life story? LOL 

Thanks again Kaith for recommending Jane Green.

Weeks before my classes started, I mentioned that I cleaned my room and I found these old letters in my treasure chest

Letters from my South Korean penfriends! You know how much this country interests me these days. My regret now is that I stopped exchanging letters with them. If only I pursued our letter writing friendship, I have them for more than 10 years now. More importantly, my dream of visiting South Korea and finally meeting Mr. P is closer to reality LOL

Lastly, I'd like to post my an update to my journal project.
Hi Ricki! I hope I'm not annoying and giving you regrets of accepting me in the challenge. :)

This probably marks the end of my attempt to rekindle my interest over arts and crafts. Calling my lifeline, Jenn, Jen, Janelle and Betsy, can I loan your talents for a while?

I know this appears to be a lousy post. This reflects the fact that I feel unproductive over the past days. I've been accumulating tardiness records again. I don't get my much needed sleep. I'm not satisfactorily progressing with my two freelance works. I suffered from slight fever and colds over the past days and for some reason, I feel lazy and unmotivated over the past weeks. Sigh.. Hoping things and life will be better over the next days.


  1. *giggles* I am glad you are having fun, Diane! Have I told you how Shanley is obsessed with all things Korean? She wants to visit Korea, too.

    I will link-up with you this evening when I post about BBQ~ I am not home right now, but I will be in a few hours.


  2. Hi Diane,

    i knew you would like my blue moodboard today ;-)
    I've never been to South Korea - I hope your dream to travel there comes true for you!! I've been keeping journals since my childhood. Yours is lovely!
    have a great week,

  3. I love that Jane Green book! :-)
    ♥ Kyna

  4. Hi Diane! I've always heard Korea was a beautiful country and I would like to go there one day! I have many journals but just use them when I travel. I love looking back at them. The little letters look so sweet.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. Your journal looks like a very creative work in progress. You do have talent my friend! Hope you're feeling better soon and get some much needed rest so you can get your groove back:-)

  6. Oh... there's me! I recognize our photo. Speaking of journals... I got officially kicked out of my mom's house last weekend (i.e. she packed all the stuff I still have there, and threatened to throw them away if I don't get them and move them to my house *sigh*) Most of the stuff I left there were stuff from high school and college which included old journals and an old scrapbook. One of these days, after I stop cringing, I will post photos so you can see why I don't do traditional scrapbooking ;)

  7. We're all entitled to feel like ranting once in a while. I hope your blue mood passes soon! :)
