Hello March!

hello march

It’s already the third month of 2013 and I go “Anyare” (Filipino slang for Anong nangyari? Or What happened?) Indeed, the days are long but the year is short. For this month, as I welcome the summer months here in the Philippines, I am hoping for the better days to finally come on my little corner.

For this month, as the fruit trees grow and as the flowers bloom, I hope to achieve these and will definitely aim higher (as suggested from the Project Happiness book I am reading)

Carbs1. Loose unnecessary weight and eat healthy.

2. Exercise, it indeed does wonder with the endorphin to make people (and me) happier.

3. Read at least three books for this month

silverlinings_fbGet a copy and read The Silver Linings Playbook

I got these two books from a thrift shop I know it is from 2005 (and upon checking the net, there are current revisions) but just the same, I bought it, simply because, I am fascinated with old houses and old churches and the guide books have drawings and explanation. For the updates, I can always check and supplement it from the net.

4 . Update the blog frequentlypencil shading copy5.  Practice pencil shading. Yes, I got these practice books from the nearby bookstore and it is a stress-free session even if it’s simply shading. And I now know the different uses of the labels in the pencils. 🙂 For someone with a relatively poor eyesight and did not excel in art classes in grade school, I am doing good right now. 🙂

6. Learn something new— Creative writing perhaps? *winks* A new recipe perhaps.

7. Do my Church project—write ups and pictures of  the nearby churches near my location.

8. Visit nearby towns
