Weekly Wishes # 25 { February 2015 | Week 1 }


Weekly Wishes

This is a weekly blog link up by The Nectar Collective which I always join because: (1) I need to transfer the buzzing things from my brain to somewhere else. (2) I need to get things done and (3) I need to get to my goals — retiring early — the fastest way possible!


Hey, how are you?

Me? I’m beat. We went to Divisoria to check out some seamstress, but the price isn’t right for me. I wouldn’t spend much money on dress if I just have to wear it for one day, even if it’s my bridal gown. I need to do more research and I need more creativity. I’ll figure it out soon! We also went to Dangwa to check out the flowers. I had a fun time checking them out! I love some. I even bought succulents! Weeee! I’ve been wanting to own one. I bought 3. When I posted the pics on fb and ig, people asked me where I bought them. I got brochures from Dangwa, but I doubt I’ll be needing them. I’m thinking of making my own bouquet, even those of the entourage. Including at the church, the arch and on the reception. I have seen the arrangements and I am afraid they wouldn’t get my bouquet peg. Mom is going to be here and my cousin will be here so I think I’m just going to do it. Just need some research and practice. :)

I am going to DIY this wedding!

On My Freelance Writing Career 


Work on this week’s task. 

Clients loved my outputs. Have to finish the rest of the task.

Apply to more jobs. 

No, I can’t because I got one new client who hired me at my new target hourly rate and that makes me happy! :) From now on, I’ll just be taking 2 quality clients at a time.


On Finances 


Update financial spreadsheets.

Proud to say we do this regularly. Hope this lasts the whole year through.


On Health & Fitness 


Eat veggies. 

I managed to eat veggies only during 1 meal this week. Might as well increase it to three this week.

Drink tea. 

Sit ups 

Zumba this week 

I did this with a little kickboxing on the side. There’s also an ab exercise, which I need to work on. I can’t keep up. Haha!


On Personal Development & Creative Pursuits 


Read Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere 

I haven’t read the book week. Bad.

I’m lagging on this one. Need to do this this week. The semester is coming to an end.

Again, work on this.

Pay tuition!

Yahoo! The process took 10 minutes only.
