Mute Button

I am definitely not indifferent. You're boring. 

In my work now, or even in the previous one, it requires a show for interest about matters even God doesn't want to know because it is that boring. I am constantly boggled why people share disinteresting stuff, I mean hello, don’t you have your siblings for that?

People often brand me as a quiet person but I am not. I just don’t want to talk about the things they share with me. Of course I am not rude so I’ll listen but please don’t take 20 minutes of my time discussing what color fits you or what happened to your cat AND expect me to do so too.  Believe me you would not want to know what's up with my cat too.

Some people assume things about me since I am a "quiet" person. From assuming I have problems to thinking I lack social skills. I'm like whatever, as long you shut up. I just wish there is polite way of saying shut the hell up. Some people just need a mute button.

I Just Cannot


So here's a question: How do you like to start your morning?

In a dream world, my morning would always be quiet, where I would never have to rush. Not even for breakfast or a beautiful sunrise. Then I'd be able to lie in bed for hours, checks phone and contemplating life... but I know 
this rarely, if ever, happens of course.
 
My alarm usually goes off at 7:30, although I do hit the snooze a couple of times.. okay I admit more than a couple of times. Then I visit the ladies’ room, splash some water on my face, and drag myself to the kitchen, not stopping for anything or anyone until I have that cup of coffee in my hand.

Nothing, and I mean literally nothing, is worth waking up early for me. I love my bed, it is almost my shrine. Wouldn't you love it when we get to wake up anytime we want with no consequences. I am not saying I am not gonna work, it's just that i want it to be in my own phase. Where we could wake up late and still finish what we have to do in a day.

 I'm kind of a grumpy animal for the first hour or two after I get up. When my shift at work starts early, my staff would always notice how I really hate mornings. Ha-ha! I'm pretty uncommunicative first thing in the morning so sorry if you happen to wake up next to me. I really cannot be all jolly in the morning. I just cannot. well, except for bacon. They're awesome.

Little Girl Inside

Since I started watching ABC's Once Upon a Time, I've been hooked. Let's give a second to thank Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis for creating Once Upon a Time. They deserved it. Anyway, the show is a compilation of all fairy tales but with a twist that connects all different characters into one big story. It recreated a real peasant pregnant Cinderella, a woman Jack (from the story of Jack and the Beanstalk), the Genie from Aladdin who also became the person inside the Magic Mirror from Snow White, a lesbian Mulan who's in love with Sleeping Beauty Aurora and other more characters. Once Upon a Time reverted me to a seven year old little girl. And now after two great seasons, the show keeps adding more interesting characters which made me love the show even more. Especially that the show added my favorites: Tinkerbell and Ariel. With Tinkerbell though, portrayed by Rose McIver, I expected more with her story but boy! did the show satisfied me with my favorite Disney princess Ariel (Joanna Garcia as a redhead? sure looks like Amy Adams). 

Ariel

The show is on its 7th episode and there are still big new characters yet to to be debuted: Rapunzel, Cruella de Vil, the real Ursula; and to be developed (well, hoping): Prince Erik, Ariel and Robin Hood. I am so excited that the little girl inside me is doing her happy dance. Are you as excited as me? Which character did you like the most? Or are you waiting for a character to come alive? Share your thoughts.

Why Attract Women

[photo credit: textmarketer.co.uk]

Women still got it. Whatever women say, men have to.. in business power play that is. According to Women's Marketing Inc. (WMI), women controlled the whopping 85% of all purchases.  WMI's study also confirmed that women made 65% of all car purchases, 66% of computer cases, 80% of Healthcare decisions and 93% of food purchases. We can see clearly that even if your product targets male population, its should be marketed appealingly to women too.

The next question is, how to attract women? We all know the power of the internet and even more now that it can be on our mobile phones. WMI researchers revealed that 46% of women will turn to their smartphone when they first wake up in the morning. In addition, 63% of women won't go an hour without checking their phones, says Harris Interactive. Thus, this handheld device, to which most women are so hopelessly addicted can become a very powerful tool to your business. So if you think your business website isn't mobile friendly? Give your website designer a call and start making your business appealing more to women..because we, women, still got you.

keeping tabs

I definitely miss everything. I miss the long hours of reading books (Sarah Dessen's Just Listen which I can't seem to finish), I miss blogging, I miss watching my favorite tv shows (How I Met Your Mother just started its final season) and I miss grabbing drinks whenever i wanted to...I miss all those simple things. I know pretty much that at some point I really need to work, it's just that I didn't expect it to be this difficult. I think the worst part of it is, I don't own my time anymore. So I am adjusting and clearly not smoothly.

I miss my brother Lyndon too. He is now working abroad, specifically in Dammam. We always facebook or skype each other but it's really different when he's here. I miss our talk, from the random shallow things happening in our lives to the deepest thoughts we could only share to each other. I also miss our drinking sessions, partying or even just listening to music and hang out. He's like my partner in crimes. And now that he's gone to the other side of the world, literally, I miss him and everything we did. 

I miss doing events. It annoys me that I can't handle events anymore. It's the one thing I'm happy doing. Yes, it's stressful but it's the stress that gives me joy at the end especially when the clients are satisfied. I miss that kind of joy. 

I miss my old life where my problems just revolve around with this one question: "will I go to school or not?" I hate that the only free time I get is when I sleep. I hate that I can't read books, blog or watch a freakin' movie if I wanted to. I hate that my brother is not here. I hate that I'm not in events anymore. I think it is safe to say that this point of my life is not going to my favorites. Growing up sucks, hard.
