Day 89: On A Spending Diet

It’s going to be such a splendid mid-year because I’ll be on a huge commitment – “Spending Diet.” I’ll be seeing myself either walking, catching a cheap jeepney ride, or nibbling on a Php5 bread sold across the Central Market. haha. I don’t know what had gotten into me but: A.

I am just trying to stick to the goal that I made roughly fifteen days ago. Read more →

Day 14: Daily Mantra

“I can do this!” Yeah. I say that to my face every single minute. It’s like preparing to take the Nursing Board Exams all over again where your head is there with no distractions whatsoever – it’s only you and the goal. With that I made a lot of plans with regards to this project and I made some sacrifices as well. Huge ones. I even changed my routine – different activites from the moment I wake up and when I am bout to go to sleep. Well, you can say that I am “sort of” dreaming for that big day to eventually come.
