Just in time when my siblings and I were planning to get into business, I received this book entitled I wish they taught money in High School. The 2 in 1 book written by Clarissa Serina-De La Paz and Sharon W. Que talks about money, saving, budgeting, investing and a lot more.
The title already speaks for its subject matter, Money Management. But then when I read on it, it was more than it. It’s a lifestyle upgrade. Authors knew that money or handling money should be taught to youngsters as early as high school (even earlier). They knew that if money is introduced to young people, it will be of great impact to their generations.
I wish they taught money in High School So I’m not dependent on paycheck by C. De La Paz captured me first, the fact that I still depend on paychecks. I love how the author shared her experiences on working, saving, starting a business, and explained even the smallest detail of her journey.
I wish they taught money in High School So I can start my own business right away by Sharon W. Que was of different approach. More numbers involved, but don’t be scared. It has a lot of good points to note down I almost highlighted every page of it.
This book is truly an encouragement for business seekers. It is recommended to people who see themselves retiring early in life. To everyone with big dreams and goals, this is for you to read.
We know that being an employee is really exhausting (to nth level, right?). Running in circles to make ends meet is definitely not your kind of life! So why not start doing little steps to the life you wanted. Remember, it’s never too late or too early. Don’t let your dreams be blurred by the circumstances.

Why took the course?- These words, asked by the instructor, enlightened me more as each of the participant in the Basic Make Up Course answered. Their reasons were not far from mine. I also want to learn #MakeUp like most. And earn, for some. Both were my reasons, but here’s my exact answer.
“I enrolled because I always loved playing with colors. And like them, learn real make up.” That, I said.

Make Up (honestly!) was never my interest. I hate putting on layer by layer of make up. But colors, true to what I answered, has been my love and interest since I can remember.
Both my brother and sister are inclined to art and music. I can tell you without a blink that their works are more than average. Not because I am their sister but I guessed it is because I have an eye for a real art. You see, being an artist runs in the family. Lol :) Charot!
So, back to Make Up. You ask, “Am I shifting to a new career?”
Well NO. But at some time in life, you need a break-free from what you are constantly doing and discover what other things you can do. Mom always tells me this, to explore yourself, do what you love to do, and be so good at it. Success will definitely follow. #WordfromMom
Soon… Advanced Make Up Course! :)
I won’t list my new years resolution anymore. I have seen my past notes (hard copy, yes they are!) and the list keeps on repeating, year after year after year. Not effective for me perhaps. So I am changing my style.
Instead of making list, let’s stay strong and get into some action in welcoming 2014.

“Better safe than sorry.”- You probably heard this saying a lot of times since you were a kid. For some, these words started to lose its meaning. But for the others, taking precautions is a serious priority.
Last November 15, 2013, I together with a number of media and bloggers joined an event called 360º of Protection. The topic was shifting the focus on health care for women from treatment to prevention by standardizing health care prevention methods through the most cost effective way.
Decluttering your home before Christmas season is one thing to cross off in your to do list in preparation for the year to come. Imagine a clutter-free, organized and relaxing environment with your family on Christmas eve. Who wouldn't want that?
The thing is, decluttering is easier said than done. Look around. Just in time the super typhoon Yolanda hit the Philippines is as good as your messy drawers loaded closets, storage bins, or perhaps your entire room. You don’t know what else to do because no matter how many times you organized your stuff, it all lead to disaster.
