As I have mentioned in previous posts, my youngest daughter has started to learn to play the piano. To help her in her studies, we bought her an electronic keyboard. As she progresses we may add things to help her enhance her electronic music endeavors. We were thinking of getting her something like the akai apc40 Ableton Performance Controller which we can get from Musicians Friend. We are very happy with her progress so far and were proud of her when she did her best during her first recital. We are looking forward to see her continued progress and will do whatever it takes to give her the tools to improve.
There is no things that can surpass of these gifts during my kids Moving Up day, I was surprised when I found out that Faith was able to get an academic award, she received a silver medal for that. When I arrived at the venue, I saw Faith smiling so wide, grinning while looking at me. Her eyes are saying something, something that I and she will be proud of and I know exactly what it is.
My eldest daughter Moving Up day is scheduled in the afternoon. Mj was able to get a special award from her swimming. I can’t be happier seeing these awards on our wall, wish to have a wall full of their awards.
It’s not that I am losing hope; I mean I know my youngest daughter is full of surprises good or bad, bad or good. But honestly, I didn’t know she will receive an academic award during her Moving Up day. I asked my 2 sisters to accompany Faith at the venue since I could not attend the ceremony and when I got there, I was surprised when I found she had a silver award. I congratulate her right away when she saw me in the back. But she was too busy to respond, she said she needs to get the portfolio from her teacher and the school newspaper.
I know Faith can surpass my expectation, it is just that I don’t expect too much it is because I want her to enjoy her school without feeling any pressure. But she did it, she just did it! And too bad I wasn’t there to put the medal on her, work sometimes sucks especially during this very important event but I know I can’t stop I need to work hard for them, for my family.
Faith is grinning so wide while eating her lunch, she felt so proud that she was able to make it although she said she wanted to get the topnotch, I answered “As long as you enjoy what you are doing, dream big”. Although I wish of her to get to the top but I don’t pressure her because I know and I am sure that instead of her being inspired she might end up affecting her negatively.
So we are taking it slowly but surely. As long as we were able to study in Filipino and Sibika, everything will turn out fair.
Your office shouldn’t be a space that is dull and uninviting. If there’s no inspiration, then it makes it hard to get any work done during the day. You can search for leads for contractors who can give your office a makeover from top to bottom that will add brightness and cheer so that you want to work. The windows should be a focus of the space as you want as much natural light as possible. The contractor can work to add more windows to the room or to create a window space that allows as much light to enter as possible. You also want to think about the flooring that you have. Hardwood, linoleum or another flat surface instead of carpet makes it easy to roll in a chair from one area to another. However, carpet is more comfortable to walk on and gives a comfortable look to the office.
A sleek design is often the best way to go in regards to how the office flows from one side of the room to another. Create a large desk space with a corner area for storage. You also want to have cabinets that are placed above the desk that reach to the ceiling so that you can keep all of your supplies out of the way. A comfortable office chair is also something that you want to have on hand as you’re likely going to be sitting for long periods at a time. Lighting underneath the cabinets is ideal as it will give you a better view of completing paperwork and typing. Use softer lights so that the eyes aren’t strained.
If you don’t sit for a long time while you’re in the office, consider an edgy design with a stylish bar area for the desk and bar stools instead of office chairs. Hang lights above the bar for modern lighting along with decorative plants that brighten the space. White walls accent the darker look of the stools and the desk. Decorative stools with a back can also be used if you’re looking for a little more comfort while working.
