The Reader

November 16, 2010

Reader’s Digest
I’ve been a loyal subscriber since 2006. I love reading the magazine. I literally read it from cover to cover, even the paid ads section. It’s just a great collection of stories and news that cover many aspects in life like technology, health, adventure, crisis, economy, breakthroughs in medicine, and even laughter.

I can’t imagine subscribing to any other magazine, except maybe Time. When I first subscribed to RD, I just did it because I wanted to appear intelligent and relevant. However, I realized that more than the impression it gave people, I learned a lot from the information that I read on its pages.

I am about to renew my subscription, and I am looking forward to another 12 issues of full enjoyment and education.

Carrying it in my Pocket

Good Advice

I've been in this world for more than 26 years now, and I have already been offered a lot of wise words from not necessarily wise people. However, there are about a couple that really stick to me even when they don't usually apply anymore.

I had a trainer who once told me that at work, I should always know where my loyalty lies. This is so true. When you climb the ladder of success, you serve more people and more people serve you and become equals with individuals you would not really hang out with otherwise. It is easy to be deceived by a lot of people who may mean well but do not have backbones, by people who mean to discredit you and ruin your performance at work, or even by people who wish to mean well but will never be able to prove themselves at work. It is important to always know who you should be loyal to. Loyalty pays, and it never hurts to have a friend or two even when the demands of work become strenuous.

Also, my favorite boss once told me that no matter how I felt, I should always GET UP, DRESS UP, and SHOW UP. It's more difficult than it sounds because we will always have sick days, and sometimes, it is better not to show up than work and not be as productive or as effective because you weren't really feeling well. However, it does not have to be followed literally. There are many ways to interpret the advice. It's just up to you to spice it up.

I've have heard many more wise words from different people that have both inspired and encouraged me. To them, I will always be thankful for sharing their wisdom. It would be so nice to live my life and have them become proud that they once mentored me into becoming an individual to be proud of.

I Miss Karaoke Nights

November 16, 2010

I don't even need convincing. I love karaoke, especially karaoke nights at home. The three songs above are just the ones that I always sing every time there's a karaoke party. However, that does not mean I don't sing anything else.

What about you? What are the songs that make it to your list? *wink*

Karyn White by Superwoman

I've loved this song since I was young. I'm not a fan of its lyrics, but I know I can sing this song.

Amy Grant by That’s What Love is For

Who wouldn't love Amy Grant, right?

Dido by White Flag

This is probably less difficult to sing than the others. Singing this reminds me of a friend I had from the first company I ever worked for.
