• You Can Shoot Me Down

    February 15, 2013 ishabelle

    When you ask a person to lead, supervise or manage, you are actually asking a lot from that person. I don’t think most people realize that when someone becomes a supervisor or a leader of sorts, that person is not getting a “promotion” or a higher status symbol. On the contrary, that person is asked to give more of himself, to think of everybody when everybody else only need to think about their own. When a higher-up screws up, everybody…

  • Burning Weekends

    January 7, 2013 ishabelle

    I know I’ve said I don’t believe in resolutions and don’t make any, so I am not calling this a resolution. This next thing I’m blogging about is more like something I’d want to try this year. For 2013, I will try to do my best to make sure that my weekends remain “Weekends” and not extensions of “weekdays” and unfinished work that I leave off to finish during my free hours. Last year, I sacrificed a lot of weekends…

    I’ve always been the kind of person with no definite life plan. When I was younger, I’ve always wanted to become a doctor. When I grew up, I realized I could never stand the sight of other people’s blood. How was I possibly going to attend to the sick? When I entered college, I was dead sure I’d be enrolling for a bachelor’s degree in accountancy. However, I ended up pursuing Sociology-Anthropology. I spent the next seven years professionally working…

    Every now and then, I come to this blog to write something. Along with that, I keep hoping I’d once again find the passion and the commitment to keep this blog updated and start writing poetry again. The passion is there. Definitely. However, I can’t seem to commit anymore. I love this blog. I writing. I love reading other blogs that I have come across in my WP journey. It’s just that my life is at a point where I…

    One of my good friends arrived today. After more than three months working on a cruise ship, he is now on a month long rest. The point of this blog today is that I am so thankful I don’t have to work so far away. Yes, I know that they get to earn so much more than anyone could ever earn by staying here in the Philippines. However, money is not important for me. I don’t care if I live…

    Finally, that intensely busy weekend is over. Monday was not even spared. It was supposed to be a holiday, but I had to write so many articles this week. All in all, I think I was able to write more than 60 articles, each with a different topic. I must say that I think I have exhausted myself. Except that I don’t feel that way at all. If anything, I feel rejuvenated. I feel renewed and more relaxed, and thank…
