I just got hold of my student permit to drive with a professional driver. And, I was indeed elated to finally have the authority to man a vehicle.
I have been practicing for over a week and though, I still waggle on the seat especially on an intersection, at least I get to overcome my road anxiety.Yepey!
My partner was just patient enough to teach a stubborn driver here. I hope to finally drive my own vehicle and service the family. That is indeed a possibility I really look forward to!

My father was a former naval officer and I could remember vividly the times when we were brought to their base for a party or other occasions. And oftentimes, I was fascinated by their white flashy uniform, units and other paraphernalia. Great was the passion of my father as a service man that in spite that his kids are all ladies, he wanted still that my younger sibling joined the military academy. Fortunate or not, my sister didn't pass the height requirement, so she ended up a teacher. This passion then was passed on to my third sibling, who expressively objected the idea. Well, my father just gave up, knowing that we are also as stubborn as he is!
But, even if we didn't make it to the academy, we praise our soldiers for their courage and exuding strength. So, we sometimes sport commercially available police-clothings- and- accessory wannabes. I have my personal series of cargo pants, tops and practical gadgets which I know may come handy especially in times of grave need.
When my partner joined the airsoft team, he has the complete stuffs, from pistols, M14, uniforms, head,elbows, knee and hand gears, vest, masks, and more! Whatever real steel and gears that are available for our police officers, an airsoft equivalent is up in the store. And surely, my partner and his friends are just too itchy to have them. And now that I am a player of airsoft, I have my own set of uniforms, airsoft guns, and accessories.
I just cant wait to tell them that we have now the opportunity to purchase some useful gears through 5.11 Tactical Knives. This great site was founded by police officers in Los Angeles who served fellow soldiers but now, they are catering to the general public. They have this great and wide collection of uniforms, footwear, gears, flashlights, units and more from top brands like 5.11 Tactical Series, Maxpedition, Galco, BlackHawk, Surefire, and Under Armour. And, what is so great is that we can order these stuffs online and we are the topmost priority over telephoned or faxed orders. So, we can right away receive our stuffs! We can pay through major credit cards, and every purchase made, freebies go with our orders. Isn't this amazing?
We can subscribe for their email updates and coupons that can be used for our future purchases. I shall indeed have this site checked!!!!
Since it is Saturday today, I attended again my masteral schooling in Notre Dame Marbel University. The 2-hour travel has become a routine to me every Saturday.
We had hurdled well our previous semester's subjects as I received all my passing marks. Though, I was quite disappointed with one professor who gave me a lower grade than my groupmate who had submitted exactly the same exam answers with mine. This only showed that the professor had based his grades not on merits but by whom he knows. My groupmate works in the same school where the professor is holding a position. I am not actually grade conscious but of course, I deserve anything that is fairly due for my efforts. Nagyawyaw ang kalag! hahahhaahh!
Well, though this dampened my spirit, I had to attend to my new subjects this semester. We were given earlier some laboratory works on JAVA programming. And, OMG, it really blew off my mind. I indeed wish, I went to IT masteral schooling when I was younger. The programming languages now are all new and so my generation languages are indeed of yesteryears!
I somehow blamed myself and my partner for getting myself to this headache. And, unlike our usual weekend schedules, we have now Sunday classes. Goodness! I cant anymore breath.haahhahahahh!
Our supposed schedule of mountaineering and Kayak adventures in Samal Islands this Dec. 13-14 are now officially canceled as we have our weekend classes. I really wish to stop but then I have gone this far to call it quits. AJA Rosilie! I know this will soon get over, come 3 more semesters, what?!!!!!!!! hahahhahahahh!

Because of holiday fever, we have tshirt printing works going on. Our college reunion is set this Dec 27. We originally planned to leave for Zamboanga this Christmas but because I have my role to play in the reunion, I decided to stay. My partner though, will have to go by himself to get some stocks for our store.
Perhaps after this season, we can go back to designing fashionable shirts which I know will be a big blast. Good luck to us then!

Classes are now on going and so, I am back to hurdling among the many roles I have. I am indeed a freaky SUPERWOMAN in disguise. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
Being workaholic and impulsive has its drawbacks. Apart from getting paid more and regretting from bad decisions and facing new adventures, I am actually caught in deep schedules of mind wandering and physical exhaustions. I cant even write more than 1 post per week. Yikes!
How do you stop a restless woman anyway? Help!

Several days ago, I was quite surprised to receive a mail from a visitor of my blog, Carlo of Ar-wee-der-yet, a travel blogger from Las Pinas. He was asking of my shirts and told him that I can print something special for him. So, he decided to drop by from his trip in Davao.
I wasn't expecting a very young, good looking and well-mannered gentleman though.Hahahhahhaha! Ang ingay-ingay ko tuloy from all the rants and nonsense I had been talking and sharing to him. Yikes!!!!!
We brought him out for lunch and stayed over in one of the malls here as it was a very hot day as his flight from Davao was rescheduled to GenSan. So, it really made his visit more valuable to us. I missed my classes because it is not a usual occurrence to meet a blogger and make real friendship. Through my shirts, I get to see and hear great people. Yepey!!!
We bid goodbyes together but, I indeed earned a new friend. Thanks Carlo for the visit, you made our day great!!!

A number of Filipinos here and abroad have opted for Obama as he promised change for USA and for Filipinos. I am quite amazed of his victory and the confidence of those who voted him. I only pray, his words wont merely be bacon on his lap and then gone with a snap.
The group and I had finally hurdled our last requirements for our masteral as last enrolment will be next Saturday. It means, schooling is due again next week for second semester. Whew! I am indeed really getting tired of this. This is indeed one of my impulsive behavior, hahahahahahha, getting myself in a sticky situation with all my enthusiasm and then next thing I wake up, I am in deep hole, too late to get out. The good side is, I am at least responsible for all bad and good impulsive decisions I have had made.
Amidst the strong rain, we went to see our professor for the project presentation. Goodness, we were all soaked in the rain with pitying looks for a passing grade hahahhahahh! Hope our professor will have his grand mercy on us. I am all home bundled with couple of clothes to warm me up. Geez, my rheumatism is killing me from the cold.
I have 3 semesters left. Though I am done with my other masteral degree, having the second one is indeed a big pain in my wacky head. Well, I have to endure this since I pulled my guts to even start it anyway.
I am indeed crazy. . .

Eyeglasses are indeed expensive. I have known people who would rather endure their visual problem than buy eyeglasses to support them. Vision problems have been predominant these days. In my family alone, my parents, my other sibling and I have vision problems. Being old and working on eye-straining job all complicate the case.
So, if I have the resources, I would buy my family quality eyeglasses with stylish frames to boost. As a chic person who is always conscious what with what I wear, it will be very very nice to sport different eyeglasses to complement my wardrobe. My parents and sister too wont have to endure their old pairs of glasses.
I am only glad that eyeglasses from ZenniOptical.com come very cheap. They have wide selection of prescription eyeglasses with various sets of lenses according to your unique needs. They can be ordered online. And what is more to this great site is, you can order a number of pair of eyeglasses but with a flat rate for shipping cost. Their glasses start at $8.00 and from their vast collections, you can simply select eyeglasses that not only support your visual problem but also boost your personality.
This site has gained wide recognition because of their cheaper prices. They offer very very reasonable rates because they directly sell their glasses from their factory with no middle person and less marketing costs. This means, we don't have to incur add-on costs on some things we don't have to pay. Check an affirmation news on this wonderful site here from Chicago Tribune.
This is indeed worth your money!

My family sent me this Dr. Phil Test, and I did score 51. This is what it says about me:
Funny, some words hit very hard. I like the IMPULSIVE PERSONALITY a lot! LOL!

Our classes have just started, and I am into extreme pressure again. I am not yet enrolled with my masteral schooling, perhaps next week, this enrollment will be added to my to-do list. My family is manning the store, but in between classes, I hung out in there to help out. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! 24/7 is not really enough.
Blog hopping also consumes my time, and what is discouraging is, in spite of doing this everyday, opps are not really coming. Are my efforts not enough? Well, I really don't know. I just have to be patient I guess.

My friend, Twerlyn who is in Cebu City, was very kind and generous to place her orders of my personalized blog shirts. She indeed ordered two! I have my fellow Generals as well, who ordered their stuffs of their desired colors and sizes and prints. I am only very glad that Twerlyn is indeed a proud blogger, enough to boost it on print and on her blog!
Mark Aethen, a blogger-friend from Marbel but now in Manila, was proud enough to wear this blog shirt in our very own store.
So, if you wish to have your personalized blog-related texts with designs, let me know.

With the help of Elaine, my blogger-friend, I was able to comprehend the twists and turns of Entrecard. What I seemed to ignore before and find another confusing site made my blogs more traffic-earning. My fashion blog, from its juvenile rank of close to 30M, now, its in 3M. WOW, in only two weeks. And this blog which was glued to its previous rank in spite of weeks of blog hopping has now moved closer to 400K. This blog now belongs to Top 35 Most Popular Blogs in its category. Yepey!
So, I am indebted to Elaine. She indeed is an EC queen. She was kind enough to post a number of articles on EC techniques and stuffs, I know you will find helpful. Go check her sites now!
Thanks a lot Lainy. You are indeed an angel not only to beginners like me but to everyone, close to you or not!

I was never a party-goer before as would rather consume my time reading pocketbooks, but then this old lady must dust off her old habits and paint the town red always. So, on halloween night, I dragged my sister and partner to a Halloween Foam Party in East Asia Royal Hotel. We just brought our cape and devil headdress should costumes be required. Of course, we brought our camera for photo shoots.hahhahah!
The venue was all packed indeed, but we managed to pull a table closer to the stage. The concert was all good music and fun. We wish to join the disco but then too hesitant to move as we might never stop grooving.LOL!
Who won the best costume prize? We never knew as we went home around 1 am. So, where did you hung out last halloween?
