manic monday #1

Are you usually late, early or right on time?
Most of the time I am early.
What would be harder for you, to tell someone you love them or to tell them that you do not love them back?
It would be harder to tell somebody that I don't love them back. Hurting someone is definitely not a fun thing to do.
Which would you rather have: a high salary or job satisfaction?
I would rather have job satisfaction. I function well if I am happy with what I am doing.

your right is my left??

Most taxi drivers here in Metro Manila does not know kanan (right) and kaliwa (left). Whoever is giving taxi franchise to these drivers (LTFRB??), please also check if they know which way to go if their passenger asks them to turn right or left. This can cause accidents on the road.

my new lacoste bag

I have a new Lacoste bag and it's pink. My aunt gave it to me this weekend. Thanks Aunt B! I love the bag because it is big. I love big bags since I always need to bring a book wherever I go as well as extra food (in case my son gets hungry).

I am a multi-tasking mom

According to Wikipedia, "Human multi-tasking or multitasking is the performance by an individual of appearing to handle more than one task at the same time. "

Multi-tasking is every mom's bestfriend. Multi-tasking helps me do all chores and errands that I have to finish in any given day. At 5am this morning, while taking a shower, I was instructing my son (over and over again) to finish his cereals (as well as to chew and not just swallow it because that's what he usually does when I tell him to hurry up). A while ago, I was doing the laundry and watching the morning news. Now, I am eating breakfast and updating my blog. Those are just some examples of my multi-tasking skills.

A study done by the American Psychological Association shows that multi-tasking costs time especially when shifting to less familiar tasks. I guess that study was done without mom's on their mind. All the tasks that I do everyday are so familiar with me already I can do it with my eyes closed.

I'm pretty sure all mom's will agree with me. Care to object, anyone?
