While I am jobless, at home and contemplating on how I’d be able to accomplish my plans in life, I decided to set up my mini workstation today. It consists of a mini-desk, a laptop, iPad, mini vibrating speaker, two pencil holders full of colorful ballpens, my 2013 Starbucks planner that I wasn’t really able to use last year, a scratch pad, cable holder for my gadget’s cables, and of course my precious “Always smile” notebook.
She has been with me in 2013, during my “not so good” times, when I thought that I was on a dead-end. It’s 2014, I am better, and I’m not able to consume half of her yet. I guess she’d still be with me for the rest of the year. 🙂
I have always been girly since I was a child. I love looking at sweet and pretty things. I adore flowers, ribbons and laces, dresses, ball gowns, cupcakes, fireworks, the moon and the constellations, night lights… I love colors and vibrancy as these are the things that make me most alive.
Our Christmas theme had always consisted of red flowers and red ornaments with a little bit of blues, yellows, whites and violets.
For the next Christmas holidays, I want a new theme and so I plan to help my mother decorate our home. I always get inspired by DIY home decorations that I see online. Maybe I can also do DIY ornaments for our Christmas tree. 🙂
As early as now I might need to write down my ideas and things to do for the next holidays because I’m such a forgetful young person. 🙂
I really need to sharpen my brain. I have this short-term memory that I need to set a reminder for every single thing that I need to do. In 2013, I came up with a project that I intended to start doing on the very first day of 2014, the 365 Days of Picture Writing. It’s already the 3rd of January and I am only posting my first photo now, how bad is that? I don’t want to cancel my project so I’m still posting it anyway. Better late than never, right?
I got the idea from Lisa Congdon’s art and illustration blog that I shared through a post months ago. My version of the 365 Days project is to take a picture each day of something or someone significant on that particular day. It’s a totally new life for me. I have left my first job and I’m planning to take on a business venture. It’s going to be hard but I believe that I can get through this. 🙂 Since it’s a new year and a new perspective, I want to do things that I have never done before, things with great meaning, and things that I’ve always wanted to do but didn’t had the time and inspiration to even start doing.
