facebook: it’s changes everything

A few years ago people don’t even bother with facebook. Suddenly lately it’s all the rage. The government even has to make a new policy on how or when public servants can use facebook. There’s a lot of debate on the good and the bad of facebook. Like any other tools and technology the problem will always be the human factor.

As for me facebook has changed my life completely. So many good things that came into my life was because of facebook.
5 things that made my lists are:

1. a new way to keep in touch with friends and family
2. the fastest way to get you message to all your friends
3. a place where you find your long lost friend or family
4. make you feel less lonely seeing all your friends online keeping you company
5. it’s a new way to communicate without using a phone

I made this layout using Heart and Soul Kit from the digichick designers.facebook-web

So how does facebook changed your life?

what I think? Unstoppable, Life as we know it and you again

These were a few movies I've been watching in a week time.

#1) Unstoppable

“A 20th Century Fox drama about a runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals, pits an engineer and his conductor in a race against time. They’re chasing the runaway train in a separate locomotive and need to bring it under control before it derails on a curve and causes a toxic spill that will decimate a town.”

* not bad watching denzel washington and chris pine together
* the storyline is simple and predictable
* it feels like Speed and Daylight
* making the best out of the worst situation is basically the theme of this story

#2) Life as we know it

“Two single adults become caregivers to an orphaned girl when their mutual best friends die in an accident.”

* the baby is way too cute and Josh Duhamel is also an eyecandy
* this is another fun movie
* some times you are force to grow up
* love has a way of finding you when you least expected

#3) You Again

“When a young woman realizes her brother is about to marry the girl who bullied her in high school, she sets out to expose the fiancée's true colors.”

* I love this fun movie and I love Kristin Bell
* sometimes you just can’t help it when some people makes you feel worthless
* self esteem is not an easy thing to built
*

day 309 p365: gratitude for the stories told in DVD

I went to Speed video today just browsing through all the DVDs in store. Suddenly it hit me that a DVD in my hand it’s not just another movie, it’s a story told visually and with soundtrack.These stories have touches me in so many ways, helped me through my darkest moment, helped see things in perspective and some of them even made me laugh.

So today I am so thankful that people keep making and telling stories through movies or TV series and pack them into DVD format. I can watch them anytime I want and relive the moment over and over again.

Day 9: grateful for stories told in DVD format

day 308, gratitude for my kids understanding

I have a very hectic and busy day today. Barely have time to eat. I’ve always thinking, planning and trying to make my boss happy. In all this chaos, I have three kids that really depend on me. I am so thankful that my kids are very understanding of my commitment to my work. When I called them that I’ll be late today, they don’t make such a big fuss about it. They are self reliant and independent. Thanks darling for your support and understanding.

Having a daughter is so much fun. Being the only girl in my family, I usually by myself. I never really had anyone that I can totally relate to. Life was hard back than. Every since I had a daughter 8 years ago, life has never been the same. I’m enjoying the little things that make us girls and all the the girly stuff doesn’t makes me sick anymore. Thank you honey for showing me how to be comfortable in my own skin.
