Putting a spin on a rather boring sticky notes.
On Chinese New Year.
Happy New Year to me!

New Year's resolution: Not to be too stingy anymore when it comes to using notepads/post-its.  You should see what I have - I have a lot!  Because I'm too kuripot to use them.  Haha!

Midweek Challenge

I felt rather low yesterday and I'm not exactly sure why.  I know, though, that while some of my friends are planning their future, enjoying their hard-earned money, and having a breezy time (it seems, at least), here I am sitting in my small nook in the universe, thinking about my professor's feedback on my paper, waiting for answers to flood my brain, wanting stuff that I don't have, and suddenly, just feeling generally unsure about what lies ahead. 

To make things worse, all these I do while time passes so quickly before and behind me.

I guess I need days like this - days to remind me that there's only so much one person can do at a given time.  And that you can't have everything your way, even if it appears like your way is the only way.  

You see, I can't even touch my new stamp sets until later. :p

Be with me, God.  Please?

A New Nightmare

I had the weirdest and scariest dream last night.  I dreamt that I was getting married.  Now, on a regular day, that dream would have been awesome!  BUT in my dream, I got married because I got pregnant (my gosh)!  And that's not the worst part - I'm marrying an immature person who works as a dancer with an unstable income!!!  My heart wanted to jump out of my body, I tell you!

The dream was very vivid, and can actually be close to reality as I see the same circumstance happened to some people.  This is why it got me really scared for the life of me.

The gown I was wearing was really nice, and so was the bouquet (pink tulips, baby)!  The wedding was simple given that it was not well-prepared for (hello, nabuntis nga e!).  Here's the thing, as a practical person, I've never wished for a grand wedding.  But after seeing myself in a gown, with only about 10 people around me, sitting down on a restaurant for a wedding reception (ordering a la carte, mind you), I guess I should start wishing for more fabulous stuff from now on!  Haha!  In the dream, while eating, I was even thinking that this guy (my groom, ahem) better pay for this dinner!  Hahaha!

It's funny how now that I'm older, nightmares have taken on a whole different meaning.  When before it was ghosts I was scared about, now it's instability, enduring commitments, and finding the right man which take on my subconsciousness.  I wonder what this dream means...Could it be that I am to marry someone sloppy and immature?  Or the opposite of that??  OR!  Could it be that I am not to marry at all given that this wedding scenario scared me??  Ayayay...  I couldn't tell for sure, all I know is that it brought to the fore my real fears.

Boy, I may just be the happiest person to wake up at 3:30 in the morning.  Phew!

PS.  In fairness to me and my groom (LOL!), we looked a lot better that those people in the cartoon!  I was so slim in the gown (yessss!), and the guy, albeit his financial instability (but who came from a well-to-do family, as stated in my dream, haha!), was sort of good looking. ;)  But, Lord, I'll take on the not-so-good looking guy who can give me security, over a hot guy who can't, any time of the day.  I promise!

I Digress

You see that new button on the right?  Now that you've noticed it, the first thing you have to do is to congratulate me for remembering how to add an element on my blog!  Then, congratulate me some more 'cause I was even able to resize it!  Haha!  I know, I know... You can now stop your outbursts of applause. :D

Whenever I digress from my school work- which happens a lot- I put my energy onto trying to be a better "crafter".  And though I could get really busy at times, I'll try my best to send in some entries to this card-making contest!  I'm really excited to work on some cards, and more excited to win, of course!  But as I have mastered the art of self-handicapping, I'm not banking on it much given that I'm not really the most creative person in the world.  I'll rely on my materials to add in the beauty factor!

Oh, for this "endeavor", I told myself that I will not buy any materials or tools to make the cards.  I won't buy anything AT ALL, and I'll make use of whatever I have now.  Well, so far, so good - I just submitted my first entry (more of a "trial entry" than an actual one) and I only used stuff that I have.  Am I resourceful or what?  (One might be tempted to say "poor".  Hehe!)

There!  It's just Monday, but my body feels like it's Friday already, hehe! :)  God bless me!
