Struggling to get that desired sleep!

I so hate it!

My workmates can take a very deep sleep during the day while I, no matter how hard I try, never have a good 8-hour sleep in a day.

I dunno why, but this has been going on for quite a long time. I’ve tried several ways to fight it, but to no avail. I’ve replaced my curtain to black just to make it dark… I’ve tried drinking a glass of milk before bedtime… reading a few pages of a book… or even basking in the pleasure of Facebook.

Getting an ‘F’ in the effin’ subject called liFe!

This time I want to break away from the common theme of my posts in this blog. I wanna talk about the movie I saw yesterday. I have posted this on my other blog, but i just want to repost it here…

From a personal standpoint, our life, whether it is well-lived or not, is measured by how complicated it is. A simple one might be good as it gives you no worries, no stress.

A formula to help you avoid being called a plagiarist

Writing has always been my interest. But, at times I wonder why I just can’t squeeze my brain to produce something worth reading in comparison to my friends. Be it literary or creative non-fiction, I always depend on my luck at gathering some interest to write. Or worse, look for ‘pressure.’

More realizations came in when I got a job at Virtual Assistant Technologies, Inc. where my task demands more of writing. But because of the pressing time given per writing activity, I’m able to write.

Not a good behavior, though.

Writing straight from the heart…

I had several training sessions about conversational writing with Craig over Skype in the past two weeks, and I’m telling you, what I learned was worth the long period that my problematic ears were exposed to the headset.

I must admit that I’m a bit struggling with the conversational writing stuff. Being a teacher (in the past life J), I have this academic-writing orientation which makes me totally a freak. Why?
