Having a rockstar cousin just rocks! My 27 year old cousin who is out in Thailand is band member playing with his group in many hotels there. I think he has the best markbass among the band. When we were younger, little, and still hanging out during family gatherings, he would often sit in the corner while strumming his guitar and would sing to his heart’s content. Of course we were busy running around chasing with my other cousins but I would somehow notice how he rocked playing that guitar. I would then call the attention of my other cousins and we would circle around him while listening to him play. But those days are gone with all of us cousins grown up and living our own lives. It will be seldom for us to come together for family gatherings. I miss old times.
My aunt who lives in a faraway province though of opening up a business selling stuff she will be buying from a wholesale market. She intends to profit by selling the same items in retail. Given the economic stand of their place, she is sure to earn more that she might actually yearn because she will be the only one selling the stuff she bought. She also considering to buy cheap wholesale jewelry and again retail them in the native area. She has been stocking up for the last five days that she is here with us and is bound to travel back tomorrow early morning.
The smell of the cold breeze and chilling breath of air has finally come! This is the season to be jolly indeed. Hefty paychecks and grand bonuses are underway too! With the season of giving, it is an opportune time to celebrate and give back to others the bounty and all the blessing we have received this year. What a wonderful year it was for me and I look forward to a more prosperous year coming. This year of the snake is indeed in my favor and I want to give back to the people who helped me along the way. The year is about to set and the next is ready to rise.
It’s been a long time since I got this opportunity to post something here in my dearly beloved internet space. I got busy with work with tons of load to finish. I also had that rare opportunity to hang out with friends and hangout for a couple of drinks. One person whom I haven’t met for a couple of years came back to visit our hometown and it was a coincidence that I happened to went home too. He invited me over together with our long time friends for some catching up. He plays for a band now and was very eager to show us that he got a pcdj software at Guitar Center and was actually having fun using it. He plays good, he was always been this good and is continuing to perform better. We spent the night singing and sharing interesting stories until it was time to say our goodbyes and hopes of seeing us altogether again. What a rare occasion that we were all gathered in one place at the same time because of our hectic work loads. Cool!
Part of the company policy was to dispose off of obsolete assets. Although still functioning, outdated gadgets, equipment, and office supplies are placed on auction where interested employees can participate and bid the price they are willing to pay just to get those secondhand but in good condition items. The products on auction ranges from laptops, desktops, cameras, phones, cabinets, photocopying machines, facsimile machines and ekg machine for sale which the list are emailed to all employees. I didn’t won a single bidding but the next time there will be, I’ll make sure I’ll get one item. Wish me luck!
Educational methods have already evolved through time. Usually it takes the course of how technology has moved further. When I was just in my elementary years, having a desktop computer and an internet connection was a luxury only few can afford. Assignments are usually handwritten and additional credit were given to the handwritten ones while typewritten or computerized ones were given deductions. The library was a busy place with the sound of pages turning as the sole background music. Now, the libraries have keys pressed all over from the students who sit in from of their computers doing research work and finished papers are print to web before submitting to their teachers. No assignments are submitted handwritten and should be typewritten as a requirement. Good or bad? I think changes happen in order to move forward.
Most universities have started classes a week ago but for my alma mater, classes are just about to start this coming Monday. A lot of students all over the country are coming so traffic was so much heavier than the usual. With the place being a destination for overnight swimming and festivities, it took forever just to travel a normally 30-hour drive. When I passed by the campus, a lot of incoming freshmen students accompanied with their parents were bringing foams and electric fans and a couple of huge luggage. The dorms were full of people and jeepneys were just clogging the university streets. I stopped and reminisced my past when I was just like them, an incoming freshman waiting to be polished into the professional I am today.
Traffic has become a part of every car owner in our country. A lot of car owners would visit repair shops just to get their rides redone, repainted or be repaired often because of scratches. But there are also a lot of people who loves to get their cars done and customized. Some would get their materials online. One friend of mine recommended the Fender Custom Shop website where he got his stuff. It looked so cool but I just can’t customize my car easily because it is owned by the company where I worked for. If I’d be able to own a personal car, I’d definitely get mine ultra-customized.
My uncle used to play a trumpet back in his younger days. He was part of a marching band during his time as a college student. He played very well and a lot of his colleagues applauded him for that. This coming year he intends to play again for the sake of the old times. Their group will be having a reunion in honor of their coach’s recent passing away. One problem was that he needed his instrument fixed. He had a broken mouthpiece so he got a mouthpiece at wwbw and it was great. It fit perfectly well for his instrument and his college playing skills sprang back to life. They were to play next month and we all look forward to seeing him and his colleagues play yet another marvelous piece.
It was already the end of the second semester and the summer vacation is here. Great time especially for students who didn’t have to take summer classes. As for college students, taking summer class is a must to catch up on failed subjects. For parents who don’t have kids to send to college yet, it’s a breaktime for daily allowances. But what kids are probably excited for when class opens is the shopping part – just like I did when I was still a student. It’s the time when new items for school are bought. School bag is always on top of my list during my time. For my little sister, she didn’t want to rush with other mothers buying bags so she looked for bookbags online and bought hers there. She liked it very much although it was too early to get one. She said she’d have plenty of time to use it before the classes start. I miss going to school.
