Weekly Wishes # 26 { February 2015 | Week 2 }


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!


How are things lately?

I’m just kind of bummed that my cousin can’t (99%) go to my wedding. Remind me again why UP moved their school calendar? Ugh. Weddings should be a special event. Attending it should be a valid excuse. We’re not giving up on her fight. I want her to be there. :( She was the one who screamed for me when she knew that I just got engaged.

We went to Laguna for the weekend. Had my bridal gown sewn! What else? Oh, yes. Work. When will it ever end?

I’ve been productive though. Here’s what I did this week.

Last Week’s Wishes


On My Faith 


Read at least one gospel 

My co-worker always send this gospel everyday and I haven’t got a chance to read it until this week. :) Yay! It’ll take just a few minutes from my morning.

Hear mass on Sunday


On Blogging 


Create 3 blog posts: 1 Weekly Wishes, Wedding Blog posts, Succulents <3

I have been a little productive this week! I hope I can sustain it this week.


On My Freelance Writing Career 


Work on this week’s task. 

Finished the tasks. Got one more for one of my clients. He gave a new set of tasks! :) Yay. I’m blessed.

Apply to more job towards the end of the week.

I haven’t because I was a little busy. Moving this task this week.


On Finances 


Update financial spreadsheets.

100% compliance on this one! I’ve even tweaked some of our financial spreadsheets. :) We make our own. It’s hard finding something that suits you.


On Health & Fitness 


Eat veggies. 

I ate veggies and rice only for one meal. A lot of people have told me I lost some weight. :) But I am not trying. I am wishing. This must be due to the mountain-high of things that I need to do these days.

Drink tea. 

Sit ups 

Zumba this week 

Felt great!!!


On Personal Development & Creative Pursuits 


Read Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere 

Major fail. I just can’t fry my brain up.


On Graduate School & Work 


Analyze the data I have obtained for my QuantiStats paper

Moving this task this week.

Start working on the term paper

Same with this.

Finish this week’s work tasks

Left off a thing or two. But I’m pretty productive last week. :)


 On Our Marsala Wedding 


Research on the following:

  • Cheaper HMU
    • Asked help from my tita 
    • Going to a bridal fair this month!
  • Acoustic Band (for follow up of quotation)
    • Booked Infinite Soul Acoustic. Hoyyeaah!
  • Dresses – blog final
    • Not yet final. Ahuhu.
  • Wedding deets (flower arrangements)
    • Started on it. But I have to put this one off to next next week.
  • Follow up documents, ask for the letter from COTH
    • Done deal. We’re pretty amazing this week. I got my certificates and Jezz is going to his Catechism Sundays for the Roman Catholic conversion.
