What My Handwriting Says About Me?


posted by Rechie L on

8 comments

I read about this quiz from Jane's blog, Purposes. I found it very interesting so I went and took the quiz. The answer was quite true about me. Here, read about what my hand writing says about me. You may take the quiz too if you are interested.



Your Handwriting Says You Are Somewhat Traditional



You are highly energetic. You are a passionate, intense, vigorous person.

You range from very outgoing to very shy. You are a shapeshifter who is very versatile. You adapt well, and you look at things from many angles.

You are very detail oriented and meticulous. You are a careful thinker and a true intellectual.

You need a bit of space in your life, but you're not a recluse. You expect people to give you a small amount of privacy, and you respect their privacy as well.

You are somewhat traditional, but you are also open to change. You listen to your head and your heart.

You are a decent communicator. You eventually get your point across, but sometimes you leave things a bit ambiguous.

Are you tired of watching the same TV channels every day? Why not switch to Satellite TV systems? It offers you and your whole family a greater programming choices and more enjoyable viewing.

Well, trouble no more because Kaptain Satellite is here to help you find the best deals on Satellite Television from both DirecTV and Dish Network. From finding the best deals to promotion and packages, Kaptain Satellite has it all right at its one easy website. Kaptain Satellite also helps you find the best retailers of DIRECT TV and Dish Network according to your location. Just select your State where you are from at the drop down menu of the site and there you’ll have the information you need. If ever you’ll get confused on which will you get, a DirectTV or a Dish, Kaptain Satellite provided detailed information of the two. It might be confusing but if you are really going to compare DirecTV vs. Dish, they both have the same value. Better check on it to see the detailed information for your definite preference.

I received this through email from a dear friend and a chat mate, Ate Therz. She is a Filipina from Dipolog City, who currently works in States. With the wonders of the Internet, we met in one of the most popular social websites, Friendster. Knowing that we both came from the same place, it aroused our interest of getting to know each other better. Later on, we became chat mates and email pals on Yahoo. We met personally two months ago and found out that we are just neighbors. It was really great knowing people online and meet them personally. Internet does help connecting people and through it, we can be able to touch other people's lives and give comfort.


So, here, I am sharing with you these thoughts on how to get through life which was shared with me by Ate Therz. I hope that this will be able to minimize those lines on your forehead and will totally uplift your spirits today. Be happy and think that life is great after all.


How To Get Through Life?
Sleep as much as you can...

***
Read books that you enjoy...
***
Play with simple things...
***

Do whatever, wherever, whenever you want...
***
Look for affection when you need it...
***
Get serious once in a while...
***
Forget about diets...
***
Show some affection...
***
Get angry once in a while...
***
Change your looks...

***
Above all, be happy regardless of what your challenges may be.

Therefore, you should invest your money wisely where you can guarantee of getting profit. And thinking about wise investing, why not save it to buy gold? Yes, invest your money to gold stuffs like gold coins or gold bullion. Now, you may ask why? As we all know, gold was once a medium of monetary exchange. Yet, even until now, gold still plays its role as means of monetary exchange although in a very little way by, example, going to a pawnshop to exchange your gold to cash for a period given. Besides, gold is a secured asset to have more than anything else. Think about this, gold cannot be perished. The pricing may goes up and down, but it is there, more than a lifetime.


You may find it interesting now but there is another question, “Where to buy gold coins that guarantees my precious metals’ security?” Goldcoinsgain.com is the answer to that; the Aurum Advisors online resource for gold coins and gold bullions acquisition. It is the most secure place to buy gold online. If you want to go for bullion, you can also buy gold bullions there securely as they give you their utmost care for your precious metals. With the help of the Aurum Advisors, they deliver your “worth receiving” precious metals in a safest, most reliable and affordable way. So, stop thinking on what to invest, go for a secured asset.

I was able to hunt photo from my computer files for today's Photohunt theme which is "rock" or "rocks". So, I have here a natural rock formation you can find in the Underground River in Palawan, Philippines. This rock is naturally formed into a giant mushroom and you can only find it there.

Tantrum Attack!


posted by Rechie L on

11 comments

I didn’t feel ok since I got up this morning. I was very moody. I was even answering and talking to my husband bluntly. My mind is pretty occupied with anything; some are nonsense some are with sense. I want to do something but I don’t feel like doing. I get irritated easily with everything. Even the slow Internet connection didn't able to scape my irritability.

I sat on the computer trying to calm myself down yet I couldn't. I ended up watching my favorite Korean Show aired on ABS-CBN every Mon. to Fri. at 6:00pm entitled Boys Over Flowers. For that period of time I was able to manage a smile. I am still head over heels with those Fresh and Young Korean F4.

After watching that TV series, I switched on the radio and went back upstairs and sat back in front my computer to visit my blogger friends and do my everyday blog hopping. The connection was ok at that time so I continued with blog hopping. After few minutes, I get irritated listening to the talking DJ on the radio (we have radio speaker upstairs) so I went downstairs and switch the darn radio off and told hubby to not switch the radio on again until I will decide to go to bed. My brows have been knitted all day and to make the story short, today is not a very good day for me. But, although I am having trantrums, I still have to BLOG.

I do have a suspect in mind why I am being like this; I am going to have my red tide.

My Personality Tag - Know Me More


posted by Rechie L on , ,

8 comments

I got this tag from Mr. D of Basic Bloganomics maybe a week ago, but I was not able to post it the past week. Procrastination had been attacking me this past week plus I had been having trouble with my browser. Cacai of Step and Journey also passed this tag to me two days ago. Please accept my apology my friends for posting this late.

So, here I am posting this tag. I like this tag a lot. It does help me know my own self better. Lol. (Don't know myself that much?) While reading the answers after taking the quiz, it made me nod to every answer except the answer number 4 which really drew knots on my forehead. Hmmnn, this must be true, maybe I was just failing to notice it but actually, I am very particular with my appearance everytime I go out the house. I always want to be pleasant to look at from head to toe but it doesn't mean I am on for a flirting quest. Lol. I am very flirtatious to my husband though but I don't know why we have no baby yet. Lol. Well, enjoy knowing me better!


Your view on yourself:
You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

The seriousness of your love:
You like to flirt and behave seductively. The opposite sex finds this very attractive, and that's why you'll always have admirers hanging off your arms. But how serious are you about choosing someone to be in a relationship with?

Your views on education:
Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can.

The right job for you:
You have plenty of dream jobs but have little chance of doing any of them if you don't focus on something in particular. You need to choose something and go for it to be happy and achieve success.

How do you view success:
You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying.

What are you most afraid of:
You are afraid of things that you cannot control. Sometimes you show your anger to cover up how you feel.

Who is your true self:
You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.

IE 8 Made My Blogging Life Miserable


posted by Rechie L on

8 comments

I have been having a browser problem for 2 days after installing the new Windows update, Internet Explorer 8. For some reason, I couldn’t open my blogs with that new IE update. It kept aborting my sites saying there were certain errors on the script. It has been like that for two days. I was really pissed and frustrated thinking I can’t blog. IE 8 indeed made my blogging life miserable although I was able to visit other blogs for a quick visit before the sites get aborted. I do agree that IE 8 is more advanced, of course. It can really make your browsing faster, easier and safer not to mention the special use of its accelerator. Yet, last night, I finally decided to uninstall it because I cannot really visit my blogs which means I can’t blog. So now I am back to IE 7 and I am no longer facing that problem I was facing with IE 8. Maybe I stick to IE 7 for now.

Our Farms in Farm Town


posted by Rechie L on

8 comments

Here is a snapshot of my hubby’s farm. For about 3 weeks, he was able to make money with his farm and was able to make his farm bigger reaching level 22. Hubby finally decided to sign up on Face book three weeks ago because of this Face book application, Farm Town. Yet after leveling up to this high, he started getting tired on it and ended up quitting farming and quitting face book as well. He got tired doing the plowing, planting and harvesting everyday thinking he is going to be doing the same thing everyday. It was all girl things. LOL. Besides, he has about 10 online games which all are running real times. I feel sad about it because it means losing a neighbor in Farm Town. This picture above, hmmm obviously it is a picture of my farm. Check out the design, see my name? Lol. I planted pumpkins forming into my name "CHIE W." This is how my farm looks like three weeks ago. I am currently level 29 and I tell you, I am getting tired farming in Farm Town too. I am tired of doing the same thing every single day: planting, plowing, visiting friends' farm for experience points, hiring somebody to harvest my crops or if I need money I beg to be hired for work. But since I started this, I'll be finishing this to its last level and see what future lies in there for my farm.
