In these economic tough times, I can perfectly understand the confusion everyone particularly the businessman has in mind. What then is the key or the plan that we must partake to survive. Is it the right time to invest? If so, what type of investments would be safe? The experts say that one of the safest investments these days are gold coins. But this is only guaranteed if you rely on an expert and experienced professionals like those US Gold Bureau Representatives. They provide exceptional service to those who buy gold coins - making available the best, highest-quality rare coins at best prices, thereby maximizing your rare coin dollar investment.

Desktop is out, laptop is in. Flat screen is out, lcd monitor is in. Aren’t you amazed how technology has been quickly progressing all these years? I do. Sometimes, I find it hard to cope up and go with the flow of technological stream. I haven’t fully tinkered an iphone (I don’t even have one yet) but now here comes its latest version, the 4gs. I wonder what the next gadgets and inventions that will surprise us further these coming days. Are you ready to get in the flow with the new “in” technological thing?

Ever since my parents in law bought the Starex Van a couple of years ago, it’s the husband who’s mostly using it. So yes, that includes us. We have in our possession hubby’s 10 year old Nissan car but the in laws gladly allowed us to use it every now and then since they rarely go out and two, it’s the husband who’s always the designated family driver. It turns out though that the van is used more frequently, well, due to preference. We like it because it’s bigger, the little one is not that confined and can move freely and most importantly, diesel is a lot cheaper than gasoline. It appears more presentable too because it’s newer and the car grills are just handsome, I must say. I think this is the reason why the Nissan car has been conking out these past few months. “He” might probably throwing tantrums at us already for not minding him that much anymore.
Have I already mentioned that browsing the App Store in iTunes is my recent interest lately? I’m so addicted browsing and hunting for new cool apps (mostly games) that I can download into my iTouch.
One of the newly downloaded app I have is this free flashlight utility. There’s a number of FREE flashlight apps and a huge number of paid apps. I excitedly downloaded a free one with the highest rating but when I tried it last night when the lights were off, lo and behold, it wasn’t a flashlight at all as it was too dim. Nothing comparable to the brinkmann lights. The husband was even laughing and said that his mobile phone screen illuminates brighter than the app. Oh well, there’s plenty of free apps that I can further try.

Glad that my addiction to buying digital scrapbooking goodies finally halted. For one, I haven’t digiscrapped in ages and so I’ll just waste my money if I endlessly buy but do not put them to good use. Besides, I’m planning to diversify our investments and to buy buy gold coins is what I’m up to. I heard from a friend that usgoldbureau.com is the leading one-stop shop for precious metal investments so whether it be gold, silver or platinum, their site is a great resource of data about the latest trends in the precious metal market. So instead of hanging out in my favorite digi shops, I’ll just be contented with freebies and at usgoldbureau.com is where you might be seeing me more often.

Suddenly, the time when I am most productive changed. When I was still studying, I don't usually hit my books right away upon reaching home, to review or do assignments for the next day. I often eat first, or watch the TV, idle around or sometimes nap in the afternoon since my college classes were just on the morning. I take the public transportation to and from the school (Makati-Manila-Makati) so just imagine how tiring my 1 hour travel (one way) was. So whenever I get home, I feel the exhaustion so I'd rather rest and unwind first. I only get moving come night time but since I also procrastinated so much, often I end up staying up late and sleep deprived. I was good at cramming. I feel more productive during night time. But now, with my online writing job, it's totally different. I feel that my productivity is at its peak in the afternoon...just right after having my lunch. Well, I start my online routine at about 9 am and mostly they are spent on checking emails.
How about you, when are you most productive?

It appears that my reader feeds are bombarded with articles and blog posts about slimming pills today. Reading that while I’m satisfying my hungry palate with a Big Mac. The ironies of life, indeed!
Anyway, before I get engulfed alive by these posts, let me just share to you my Friday freebie finds of lovely digiscrapping stuffs. I may not have been digiscrapping lately but I’m continuously downloading FREE impressive digital goodies that I come across with from my favorite digishops and designers. Here’s just a few of the cutest ones I’ve seen and directly went to my downloads.

Reading my Facebook feeds sometimes makes me envious. Not of any material thing but of the Masteral Studies that a few friends are pursuing or have pursued. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I am now and the path I’ve taken. It’s just that there’s a feeling and thinking of “what ifs” hovering in my head whenever I revisit the Masteral plans I drew in college. It is still among my long term goals and hopefully, I can attain it in time. I may not be seeing any chance of getting back to the corporate world in the near future but being equipped with a Masteral degree will be a big plus when that time comes. Perhaps, the least I can do now is find options of masteral course to take through College Degrees Today, which is a website that assists one in finding the right school and course that fits his or her educational goal. Aside from masteral degrees, one can research college degrees, vocational programs and online schools or campus based schools whatever your preference is. Let’s see in a few years time where this plan will lead me.
Somebody has been working until the ungodly hours of the morning for four days in a row now. Sleep deprived, haggard and yes, I won’t be surprised if zits and pimples will appear one of these days because of deep exhaustion. I just hope that they will not be too grossed requiring intense acne treatments. Otherwise, the earnings I’ve pooled from working overtime will only get wasted over expensive creams, derma sessions and any other treatment. Here’s hoping that work will be more manageable next week.

In this internet age when everyone has a ready and easy access to the world wide web, entrepreneurs must utilize ways and means of effective online advertising like contextual ads to make their online presence be felt. These contextual ads in sites are advantageous not only for the business being advertised but for the publisher as well. It’s actually a two-way advantage.

I'm afraid of heights but I think I can conquer that fear when I ride a Sedona hot air balloon. I'll definitely put that on my bucket list.

I’m feeling sentimental again as I browsed my Flickr gallery particularly the first albums that I uploaded way back 2005 including our wedding pictures. These were our unity coins. The Unity Coins are a contemporary version of the traditional wedding coins known as arrhae or arras in the Philippines. Do note that these are just faux gold. There’s no way and we don’t have means to buy gold coins that are genuine. We bought ours from Weddingsatwork at Php 1,800 per set. This comes in a set of 13 coins symbolizing the following: love, harmony, cooperation, commitment, peace, happiness, trust, respect, caring, wisdom, joy, wholeness and nurturing. Ours is well and carefully kept in a that same special treasure heart box to date.
It’s already past 6 in the evening but the husband isn’t home still. He’s out for a basketball night with colleagues after office hours. So aside from working out in the gym, he’s determined to lose those flabs and unwanted fats and turn to some muscles through sports, huh? I have no qualms about it actually. In fact, I support him in this objective by researching about the best weight loss products in the market that are safe and truly effective. Do you have some personal recommendations?
While checking out how does phentermine work, I found this Creative Team Call for Traci Reed from a banner I clicked somewhere. When I still had the luxury of time and the drive to make digital layouts, I used to be a member of creative teams for two talented and great designers. Too bad, I had to resign when nausea took over during my pregnancy and when my online works flourished and I had to go full time. I missed digiscrapping and being a member of a Creative Team. Well, you not only get the buzz about the designer’s newest kits ahead of everyone but you also get to have them for free. I’m a big fan of Traci Reed and I used to hoard lots of goodies from her shop at Sweet Shoppe Designs. I sincerely hope that I can get my groove back to digiscrap again.
For those of you who are interested to apply, here’s Traci Reed’s CT Call details:

I remember when I used to be crazy about answering blog tags and memes, there was one tag that took me hours contemplating whether I should do it or not. It’s about the “What’s in Your Wallet?” tag. Whenever I blog and answer tags, I always try to be truthful and I do not want inventing answers or stories that do not mirror my exact perspective. Anyway, the reason why I was having second thoughts of joining the meme was that I don’t want to be caught hoarding so much trash in my wallet. The tag requires an actual photo so I find it too shameful exposing all those trash especially the thermal receipts from tm-t88iv printers..I really do have a lot of them. At any rate, I ended up doing the tag still since most of my friends have done it and tagged me endlessly.
My online biz has been doing well since the beginning of the year. Every month, I have been able to reach and even exceed the monthly quota I’ve set, much to my Paypal’s delight. The dollar conversion was, at first, not in good standing but the trend these days have dramatically improved. With the extra earnings I’ve got, I’m now wondering if it’s the right time to buy gold coins and start investing in precious metals. I believe the United States Gold Bureau has the answer for that. I’ve read a few articles in their site before and I find them all interesting. Now let’s see how the gold coins are trending in the precious metals investment world.
