Limiting Online Times

Oh dear, I’m so.. so.. so.. guilty of this! In the morning and after having my breakfast and that is usually around 8:00am already, I pick up my phone and immediately check my Instagram (not my mail) account. That usually take me around 15-30 mins. depending on how many comments I have to reply on certain photos that I’ve posted.

After checking my phone, I’ll switch to my desktop to check my email, facebook and other online accounts and also of course my work accounts. It will take about an hour or more. Then I’ll prepare the things that I will cook for lunch and I go back online.

Around 11 am, I will cook and in between I will go online until evening doing works, browsing, online window-shopping and also some digi scrapping if I have the mojo for that. Practically, online works keeps me busy and occupies my time that I noticed that I’m not taking my dog out for walk in more than a week already.. bad bad bad!

I read an article about prioritizing things and minimizing online times as much as possible. I can say that I miss getting out but when I think of going out it means shelling out money and that I don’t want to do at the moment.. yay!

Anyway, I will try to limit my online times but how can I do that if my work requires me to be online 24/7? Oh I guess I need another vacation where I don’t need to bring my work.

Odd Job: Professional Cuddler

I have seen a lot of unusual or odd jobs like smelling armpits to test deodorants done by some people but this Professional Cuddler job is unique and can bizarre as well!

Meet Jackie Samuel, a 29-year old professional cuddler who can earn $260 a day by cuddling strangers. She can snuggle 30 men in a week and that includes men whose wives passed away, war veterans, problematic in relationships or just need to have someone to be snuggled. Her $60 an hour charge can make her survive the day-to-day living , for her studies and for her son. She even established the The Snuggery, snuggling service in Rochester, New York.

A lot of people find her job odd or bizarre and some even called her a prostitute.  Ahhh.. there are really strange people in the world. Would you hire a professional cuddler just in case you feel lonely or don’t have someone to hug or snuggle you?

Awww.. Another Blogger’s Block ?

blogger's block

Blogging can be a lot of fun most especially when your thoughts are overflowing and your fingers are not yet tired clicking all the letters in your keyboard. But when blogger’s block hit you, know for sure you’ll be lost for words. For those bloggers with deep well of thoughts/ideas and steel fingers they will not be bothered about this.

Blogger’s block.. ahhhhh.. .it happens to me at times. You know there are occasions when I have to write about my assignment or I simply want to post about an event or experience but  I can’t put them into sentence. It’s like I’m having a brain freeze..lol Arghhh.. that is frustrating!

I just envy those bloggers who can quickly make a post in a swift as if the words are just in their fingertips. Bloggers who have so much great ideas, have myriad collection of collective and informative thoughts/experiences that are shared without hesitation always get my attention and praise. Ahhh.. they are genius!

As you already know, I have quite few blogs under my wings since I started blogging in 2005. I have to say that it was not easy maintaining and updating all of them. There are times that I feel burned out blogging and just thinking what to write or share for that particular blog already makes me tired at times. But hey, even though at times I whine and make drama over my blogging career, I’m still here, alive and kickin.

If blogger’s block arises, here are the things that helps me bounce back to writing:
1. I make a list of what I want to write
2. I blog hop to get fresh ideas
3. Read feeds at my Google reader
4. Talk to my friends at Twitter and FB
5. Think about the moolah coming if I’ve done all my online works
6. Stay away from my computer or I simply rest because I might be exhausted or just lazy hehe.
7. Think about shopping ..lol so it can excite me.. just kidding

Ahhh.. I hope blogger’s block won’t visit me soon! What about you have you experienced blogger’s block and what do you do to combat it?

Hello July!

Oh wow, we’re already at the second half of the year and the next thing we know it’s going to be Christmas once again! The 1st half of the year is fairly good to me, the only thing that I’m worried about is that my expenses has gone up but thankfully I can still manage all of my bills.

I’m praying that July will and the rest of the month will be a good one also. In fact, I started July with a well deserved vacation with my family overseas. Six days in The Lion City is a great bonding time for all of us and wish we all can stay longer and spend more time with my siblings but we all need to go back home because of our work and studies for my niece.

My older bro also needs to attend to the renewal of our van and fix its aircon unit. I hope it’s not expensive just like the curt trailer hitches that my cousin had for his trailer.

July, please be good, ok!

Busy as a Bee

I’ve been very blessed with work that is continuously coming and I’m so thankful for that. Been in front of my computer almost 24/7 and it seems that my executive chair needs an additional cushion for chair to make it more soft and comfortable to sit on.

Aside from my online work, I’m still a free-lance digital scrapbooking designer at one of the popular photo and personalized items website. It had given me the chance to create and earn from all my designs. Been working on a new design this week and hopefully I can release it before the month ends. If my online work is hectic, my offline life is tailing behind. I guess I need to go out  and socialize more because there are some events that I miss.
