Plates ov' Plans

"Lunch Time peek - a - Boo"

It would be better for my sanity if I blogged.

Something is definitely therapeutic about being here instead of holing away while I concentrate on work. It does feel like this cyber' home of mine is real. I mean, of course it is in the sense that I touch a keyboard, view pictures, and interact with you through reading.

Real too in the sense that I feel a degree of relaxation when I'm here...as if something inside me travels through space and settles comfortably in a couch inside this box.


Busy still...

This time domestic obligations topping research work that has to be submitted first thing Monday. The office is presenting the final storyboard tomorrow to the clients. I hope for hope they wouldn't want to change anything more. I'm tired already and it isn't even the main event yet.


I miss fixing up my home and gently caring for my plates and cups...I haven't even gone to the grocers for fresh produce. I want salad and the taste of mint on my tongue. In fact, right now my mind is craving authentic Vietnamese food...Maybe tonight me' hubz and the kids and I can go Phobac...We went Chinese a couple of nights ago at Super Bowl in Makati Avenue ...kinda' okay..but the taste seemed far too rich...

It's a good thing that my projects are spaced comfortably apart...more of this and I would sure cloink...I have to remind myself that I left the hectic pace of teaching in school because there wasn't time to be me anymore...and now that I'm doing this, I have to be careful that the wheel dosn't turn against me.

I want balance in my life. I want whatever it is I do for money to complement my wholeness as a woman instead of sucking me dry. No way.


However, I do believe that what I am doing right now will lead to something more creatively fulfilling..and yes..minus the stress. Just the other day, I had a couple of ideas. A business idea that would greatly serve the women around me and leave me fulfilled.

You see, sometime ago, while I was busy rushing up wih something...a couple of friends dropped by asking for help. They both needed letters to be sent overseas and didn't know how to properly word it in English.

I was thinking.."oh' gosh..why now when I have so many things to do." Of course I didn't let them on what was in my mind...they were my friends....so happily albeit hurriedly I obliged.

Then one of them expressed how she wished she could work somewhere else instead of where she was right now...and how she needed more money and wished she could at least afford this and that...

The same old woes and I was about to give the same ol' speech about the power of attraction and positive affirmation...I dunno'..why but the first thing I blurted was.."Why don't you start writing out a resume at least ?!"..She sheepishly took out something from a Manila envelope and pushed it towards me.."I actually did"..she replied...


I glanced at it and in one sigh said..."Nobody's going to want to read this...it's cluttered...here..let me fix it up"....And so that's what I did...

To make a long chat short...I promised that I would take time after what I'm doing right now to practice interview with her...and to train her how to hold herself up...and that after the lessons I would give her a test and a certificate saying she went through this personality development course, and most of all..I would be the one to personally look for a suitable employer for her. One whose line of industry and personality would fit her...

And then...wuuuuaaaa'..ting - a - ling...went my mind...

Hey'..isn't this what I've always wanted to do?...Why I believe it's feasible!....Training...inspiring and empowering women...then helping them land jobs....staffing I think that's called...

Exciting..exciting...

So there...

This is something I'm doodling' about...and writing about here...so that a week from now when I get swept up in a tidal wave of activities I won't forget...

I have to remember that I have this plan...

execution...execution.....comes next.

ps: thank you to all who have visited the preivious ports..I'll be by your bloggy' homes in a minute! :>

Resumes can be difficult to write for a number of reasons, some of them technical. Here in NY, there are dozens of companies that do only this.

Balancing personal and professional lives are increasingly difficult. If you're able to do it, more power to you.
