A friend of ours is into the sound system business. I think this time he is deciding if he would buy a M-Audio or not. He is weighing the pros and cons well and I have to say I salute him because he really is a business savvy. I wish is the near future I can also get my head in starting a business for us. So that we have a new income and that would really help our family. Please god, help us. Thank you
Last week I was disappointed and angry as well by the way we were treated by someone who in the past showed graciousness towards us. Seems like this has been an attitude by this people in the past. We were just subjected to it because they are not in favor of our opinion and are acting high and mighty. They feel that they are above us. They just don’t know that we are just trying not to offend them. They are used to praises and not criticism. And if someone tell them something that they think is bad then they would stuck up their nose and just say so be it. Their attitude is so upsetting because they are on a delicate profession. It just pains me to know that they believed themselves to be good but they are not. And because of this they are blocking the path to success. Oh well, that’s their choice.
I found out that there is an ongoing music lesson in the school where I enrolled my daughter. The lessons are held all school year round. All you need to do is to pay an additional fee for it. I am thinking if it’s a good idea to start my daughter now since she is really asking me if she can learn an instrument. I know we still can’t buy her one of those Luna Guitars if she opted to learn guitar but she can surely used her dad’s guitar. But I think we should test the waters first and see how well she adjust in big school.
Yes, we are in the middle of May already. That means we mommies are starting to do some shopping for the school year. It’s an expensive months since we enrolled our kids, buy books and school supplies, as well as uniform and shoes if needed. Before I have a daughter going to school, May for me is my month since it’s my birthday month, mother’s day and also our anniversary month. I am always looking forward to this month. Now that my daughter is going to school there’s another reason why I love May. And since it’s my daughter’s first time in big school I am doubly excited. I just pray that she won’t have a hard time adjusting.
No, I am not taking about piano hinges but rather talking about schools. Yes, after three years we have decided to change school for the main reason that we feel that the Montessori where we enrolled our daughter is really behind academically compared to others schools in our area. Of course, it’s not obvious because our little girl is smart and I have been trying my best to put in a lot of efforts to bridge the short coming of the school. But with all this I am happy that she was able to pass the exam in the school known academically as being number in Marikina. I just wish we have a smooth transition.
Unlike before where in we have limited choices for summer activities, today there are a lot to choices from. What I like about it now is that even the big school are offering summer activities. Take for example, St. Scholastica Academy here in Marikina. They are now giving music lessons and swimming lessons for a fee of Php 2500 to 3500. We also got Marist School in Marikina, giving out Reading Readiness program plus some sports activities ranging from soccer to swimming to taekwando I think. And not to mention the SOAR program of Ateneo. What I like about it is that Ateneo is offering tutorial in Filipino I would have enrolled my little girl if only she does not have Kumon. But come to think of it you only have to search and you shall find some activities that is apt for your kids.
It’s a given knowledge among some of my friends and family that I love to read. When I was young, I have vast collections of books but I have to give them away when we move out of the house. And now with technology, I am so deep with ebooks. My day won’t be complete if I don’t read any. Also, that is the reason why I opted to have an android phone. It’s because of the free ebook application that is only available in android. It’s good that aside from ebook we also have free audio books online download. Books are a great way to travel and make our mind work. So if you could, grab a book, may it be a paperback, ebook or audio book and start reading today. It would enhance your vocabulary and intelligence.
A lot of my friends know the dilemma that I am facing right now. I am so happy that I have some mommy friends who are very supportive of my move and are now showing me that despite the challenges we can make it through. Yesterday, three of these friends are sending me messages. I don’t see them often but they would send me messages about programs that they know would help me out. They are also tell me there opinions and views without trying to shove the idea in my throat. These friends have been with me since 2009, the first time that my daughter went to school. Our kids now attend different school but we stay in touch and when time permits we see each other. Yesterday, I realized that whenever I have a mommy problem they are the first who I will consult. And quite frankly they know how to deal with my problem or they tell me things that seem to make sense and help me out in the dilemma. I thank you Lord, for this kinds of friends. They are treasure to keep!
With a school year coming to a close I am feeling a lot of emotions. And the biggest of which is I am stressed out and I can feel the pressure. I am really decided on transferring my daughter to a better and bigger school but I am thinking which school will it be. It’s like having to worked on a Iolo disk defragmenter for the first time. Once bitten, twice say, I don’t want to experience that again and this time I want to make sure that my little girl have the best in terms of academics. Don’t get me wrong, I am not expecting my child to follow my record as a student but what I wanted the most is for her to be encouraged and nourished as a good student not to be spoiled and let loose when she is tired and lazy to pushed harder for school. Well, I am praying that I will soon find the solution to my school problem.
Yesterday, I was so happy when I saw a poster that was about a school. I thought I finally saw the school for my little girl. And so this morning I called the school and told them that I would visit to see it. I brought my SLR along to take pictures for my husband. Unfortunately, it was not the school I was looking for her. It was disheartening on my part. Then I heard some news which added to my frustration. I wanted to resent the decisions I have made on the past but I told myself there is no sense to doing that. I am convincing myself now that it is much better to look forward and make sure I won’t make the same mistakes again.
