Hello May

I am happy that this day is over. I have such a long day at school as well as at my working place. I can't wait to visit my sister-in-laws again by mid May and go camping and fishing. I am trying to update my blog before I go to bed. I have two more classes left and next week will be my final exam. I am ready to do my training for the other job that I have been eying for the longest time. Hopefully, everything will work out and that all our plans for this year will push-through. Well, I hope everyone will have a fabulous week. Keep me posted!

Looking for a Greener Pasture

I have two more weeks left for spring semester and I can't wait to have a mini break from school. Actually, I need to clear my mind on what to do next about my career and school. I feel that I need to look for a better career that will help me grow as an individual but with this current economy I know that finding another job will be hard. But there is no doubt that in the future I will be able to work a Monday to Friday job.

What about you folks? Is there anything you want to change in your life as of today?

How to Choose a Career

How to Choose a Career

Teenagers who are about to graduate find themselves asking the same question: “After high school, what will I do?” Some decide a military career may offer a healthy, prosperous career, while others debate on venturing out into the workforce right after graduation. Whether it be a military career or a studious career as a young scholar, finding the right career takes time, preparation and an understanding of your own personal strengths. Before you jettison out of school, you might want to consider a few aspects about choosing a career that’s right for you.

What’s Your Talent?

From an early age, most people can recognize where their strengths lie. The brilliant writer is keen on producing eloquent sentences, while the math whiz enjoys solving problems with numbers. Everyone has strengths (and weaknesses). Before you go about searching for the career that suits you, you want to see where your biggest strengths lie. A strong writer might pursue a career as a journalist, content writer or even lawyer, but someone who struggles in math may reconsider pursuing a career as an accountant, bank manager or engineer. Your natural talents will make choosing a career path easier.

Where Would You Like to Work

Using your given talents, you can decide where the ideal location would be to work. An individual skilled at managing projects, staying organized and interacting with individuals may be more inclined to work in an office setting rather than outside on their hands and knees performing backbreaking work. While the individual that enjoys interacting and working with his hands may choose the laborious, backbreaking work that a construction worker, engineer or even electrician may perform.

How Do You Work

While in school, you begin to notice your style of work: Organized and able to meet deadlines; somewhat organized but misses a few deadlines; or languid and struggles with assignments. Each style helps decided the type of environment that will be the best fit for you. For example, the student who dislikes strict deadlines may prefer roles that do not require this type of skills, such as a teacher or an emergency 911 operator. The individual who excels at meeting tight deadlines may consider taking on a job as an office manager, engineer or even a journalist.
Other key working styles you might take into consideration are ability to handle pressure, working well with others, understanding complex issues in order to complete an assignment. Each of these styles will help you formulate the type of work you will be best fit for.

Research a Prospective Career Path

Career paths all differ, from the life of a court clerk to the pressures of meeting performance standards as a teacher, each profession will require you to have a different set of skills, preparation and aptitude to handle the workload.
Visit career preparation websites. Speak to school counselors. Read magazines and news articles about the life and conditions of your prospective career to see how you may or may not be a good fit for this job. Also make a note of any special certifications and education you might need in order to qualify for the position you hope to obtain. For example, a court reporter will need to enroll and complete court reporting training. Some career paths will require a bachelor’s degree or more, while some may do just fine with a degree from a vocational school.
Use your skills, working style and research to serve as the guiding force for the path that might be best for you. You might develop more skills while attending college or a trade school or you might be ready for the career of your choice now.

Updating my Status

Dear husband and I went to the Social Security Administration office yesterday to update my status from Permanent Residence to US Citizen because I was advice during the Oath Ceremony last month to update my status so I will received all the benefits as a US Citizen in the future. It feels good to tell people that I am actually as equal as them compared when I first moved here in the United States nearly six years ago. Also, I am doing this because my school required me to update my Financial Aid for the next school semester. I haven't applied for my voters ID nor applied for a passport book or passport card but I will eventually process all these things by August. Well, hubby and I haven't plan to go overseas till next year if everything goes well.

Anyways, I hope everyone will have a great weekend! Advance Happy Earth Day to you all.

Belated Happy Happy Birthday to Me!



I can't believe that I totally forgot to write an article about my 30th birthday celebration last April 1st. I blame my hectic schedule at my place of work as well as my busy schedule at school. Well, I felt really awkward thinking about reaching thirty years old because I felt so old but I have so much to thank for. I thank God for all the blessings such as having a loving family and for giving me a wonderful husband. I celebrated my birthday together with my nephew Kaleb who was also celebrating his 8th birthday. My husband's whole family was there to celebrate with me. I received plenty of presents but the best gift of all was listening to my younger siblings sang happy birthday to me through long distance call. Anyways, folks being 30 wasn't so bad after all; in fact I love every minute of it!

Geeks Needs Toys Too!

My husband and I usually like to shop for odd items that are also things that we can use. Just recently I found a website that has quite a bit of odd, collectible, and unique items that are available to purchase online.  At Geek Alerts dot com, they have many items that are hard to find if not impossible to find at stores. One of the unique items that I found at Geek Alerts is a poolside climbing wall which people can actually climb up on and then jump into a pool; I think that this one is quite unique for anyone who owns a pool, especially now that summer is coming up. My husband however, really is interested in a Star Wars Boba Fett Candy bowl holder since he has always been a huge Star Wars fan and this is one of his favorite characters. If you are looking for brand new Geek Toys 2012, this is the best place to go to, and also you can get Petsmart coupons and even an Amazon promotional code when you visit Geek Alerts, along with discounts at other stores. So why not check out Geek Alerts today, you will definitely find something that you like!

Cookout with Step Dad Yesterday



Dear husband and I had so much fun while visiting his Step-father yesterday because we grilled some chicken, made some steam rice and his Step-Dad made some burritos. Plus, hubby was so kind to purchase a gallon of ice cream as our dessert. It was fun especially that his neighbors also went there to spend time with us. Though we were expecting to have my husband's older sister to join with us but she wasn't able to make it because of work.

After everyone was done eating, we watched some movies and end up taking a nap afterwards. My husband and I went home around eight last night but it was all worth it. If any of you out there are interested to know about the recipe for the above dish please check out here!

Contraband Movie Review

We were able to go to the discount movies last week and we didn't know what to watch and we decided to check out Contraband with Marc Wahlberg. Well, I didn't think that it was going to be a good movie, it turns out that it was actually a great movie. The movie follows a man played by Wahlberg who used to smuggle contraband goods into the United States in his younger years. It turns out that his brother-in-law had gotten into trouble with a local crime boss and it is up to Marc Wahlberg and his friends to smuggle contraband into the United States or else his family will be killed. Well, the movie is quite suspenseful and I was constantly wondering what was going to happen next. Overall the movie was an excellent thriller and is quite original, I highly recommend everyone to watch this movie.

Wrath of the Titans Movie Review


The Wrath of the Titans was an excellent action-packed movie. For those of you who may not know, the Wrath of the Titans is the sequel to the previous re-make of the Clash of the Titans. This movie picks up with Perseus years after the events that occurred during Clash of the Titans. Perseus is older now and he is visited by his father who is Zeus, and tells him that he needs his help. It turns out that Hades and Aries are both making a scheme to revive Kronos, father of Zeus and Hades in order for Kronos to wreck havoc on the earth. The movie is really good and has some surprise twists and many new monsters which I wont give away so that it will be a surprise. If you are looking for a good action packed movie, I highly recommend this one.

Beautify Your Yard Using Scotts Snap Spreader System

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts®. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of the things that I really like to do is to help my stepfather keep up with his lawn since he is getting older and has trouble doing  a lot of the work by himself. As the winter seasons have already gone, it seems that the cold of those winter months have affected my step-dads lawn. Fortunately I found a great product called Scotts® Snap® Spreader System that will help make my stepfathers lawn look as good as before and possibly even better. Scotts Spreader System is an entire system that helps spread fertilizer throughout your backyard which will then help make grass grow. One of the best things about the system is that it is quite easy to use. Scotts Snap Spreader also spreads the fertilizer evenly with less mess than any other system out there, especially because of its edge-guard feature that ensures that the fertilizer does not go where you do not want it to. Clean up is easy because the bag has a self-seal and the spreader system itself is small and easy to store. If you are interested in checking out this product take a look at their website and also sign up for the Snap perks on Facebook to win various prizes and giveaways! Also, I invite everyone to watch the video testimonial below.

So Much Heartaches

Yay, I am relieved that my 12 hour shift is over. I can therefore, breath a little easier because those 12 hour shift really dread your energy. These past few days, there were many things that happen and it's been really tough on me. I have been emotionally wrecked because of the current situation I have with the University I attended here in Texas and I am very disappointed about that. I am trying to figure out ways on how to get back on track and I am trying to do one at a time because I feel like I will have a nervous breakdown soon.

Still, I am thankful that I have my husband on my side because I can really count on him. He has been really understanding with my mood swings lately. I am sorry for all my visitors here because I know I have been ignoring all my blogs lately. Feel free to contact me if you need anything. I hope everyone will have a great week ahead!
