Daughter Experienced Earthquake for the First Time

Last night we experienced intensity 3 earthquake. We were thankful because nothing happened to us. Magnitude 5.5 earthquake hit the epicenter in Batangas and caused damage in churches and commercial establishments. I believed in our place though we experienced intensity 3 nothing damages occurred.

My daughter and I were on the bed, she was playing her gadget while I was watching Kdrama. Suddenly, we both heard sound from the glass window and the bed was also moving a bit. We looked at each other while I’m telling to her that there is “lindol” (earthquake). My daughter was frightened and handed to me her gadget. She even asked her grandmother to sleep with us. I even heard her “Mama magdadasal  ako” (mama, I will pray). Well, she prays before sleeping but I surprised to hear that words from her. So this was my daughter’s first earthquake experience and I hope it won’t happen again.

I heard in the news that there are many aftershocks happened but I don’t think we have here. In our place the tremor happened very fast, I think 20 seconds or less. Well, this kind of disaster happened unexpectedly so we should always be very careful at all times. We should be ready at all times so when time comes we are prepared. We should not be panicked and present of mind is really important at this time.

5 Tips for Women Who Are Dealing With Depression

Depression is one of the leading mental health issues for women, second only to anxiety in modern prevenlence. Fortunately, thanks to modern medicine and research, women no longer need to suffer in silence. Although your first trip should be to your primary care physician, in some cases that’s not enough. Whether or not you are prescribed antidepressents or other medical treatments, there also are simple steps you can take to treat your depression by changing your lifestyle. Here are 5 practical ways to keep depression from controlling your life.

Stay Physically Active

Multiple studies have definitively proven that physical activity can help fight the symptoms of depression. You don’t have to hit the gym for hours to see results, either. A simple walk, run, or swim can make a dramatic difference in your mood, both in the short and long term.

Turn to Friends for Help

Having a strong social network is incredibly helpful for anyone dealing with depression. If you already have one, lean on it in your times of difficulty. If you dont, look into a local womens support group, like the ones provided by Courageous Women Ministries. These groups can help you mentally and emotionally, no matter what you are going through.

Get Outside

Like physical exercise and social support, spending time outside has been proven to have an instant impact on feelings of depression. Spending some time in the sun is ideal, but even time spent outdoors in cloudy weather is good for you. Breathing fresh air will clear your head, and time spent in nature will lower your blood pressure and calm you down. Plus, it will help to distract you from whatever unpleasant thoughts may be spinning in your head.

Do Something You Love

Whether it’s a hobby, a sport, or a craft, try to spend time engaging in an activity that still gives you pleasure. It doesn’t have to be productive or helpful, just a reminder that your life is still full of potential joy and creativity. Even better, find an activity that can help others, such as crocheting blankets for the homeless or reading to the blind.

Don’t Give Up

Depression doesn’t have to be a lifetime illness. With proper treatment and perserverence, you too can overcome it. Your family and friends depend on you, so don’t give. Keep fighting and you’ll win.

Unique Ways to Quickly Make Money

Although making money is a worthwhile pursuit, it doesn’t really mean much if you have to spend all day away from your friends and family to do it. Who wants to slave away at a job they hate just to make a livable wage? With that in mind, this guide will look at a few simple ways that practically anyone can make a little extra cash, or in some cases, a lot of extra cash. With the right amount of effort, you can even turn a simple hobby and interest into something that is profitable on a recurring basis.

Property Rights

One of the easiest ways to make money is to take an honest look at your property. Aside from selling your house during a real estate boom, there are other ways in which your property can help you generate an income. Does it have access to minerals or natural gases? If so, then oil and gas royalty companies like Endeavor Acquisitions might be interested in making you an offer on the land. This can be incredibly financially rewarding, so it’s worth considering if you’re looking for alternative revenue sources.

Online Shops

Online shops like Etsy allow users to make hand-crafted items and then sell them for a premium over the Internet. If you have an interest in crafting or knitting, then consider advertising your trade on sites like this to generate interest. Once you’ve established a solid customer base, you can start pursuing your trade in earnest. Best of all, since you’re doing something you’re already interested in, like knitting sweaters or hand-crafting chairs, it won’t feel like work.

Spring Cleaning

As spring nears, you might be tempted to clean out your house of all of its junk. While garage sales used to be potentially profitable, they’ve dropped off in popularity over the years. On the bright side though, there are now plenty of sites that will be more than happy to make an offer on what you believe to be your old junk. Old mobiles, t-shirts, dresses, and virtually anything else that you might consider throwing away has a potential buyer online. Before you commit to cleaning out your house, do a quick search online to see if there’s any sites interested in making you an offer on your stuff.

While these tips won’t make you a millionaire overnight, they’ll at least give you a baseline of monetary support that you can then build from yourself. Just remember, money won’t solve all of your problems, so it’s better to make a little less money if you’ll at least be a little bit happier in the process.

Wooden Toys Similar to Jenga

My niece in Canada told me about Jenga. She said it was one of their favorite games to play. I went to the toy store and see if they have it. Yes, they selling it but i didn’t buy because of the price. For me Php899 is a huge amount and I thought there are other important things to buy that I needed most.

My nephew here celebrated his  birthday and asked his sister to buy Jenga as his present. His sister granted and we got the chanced to play this game but not at all times unless we visit nephew’s house.

Some info, Jenga is derived from swahili word meaning build. It is a physical and mental skill game. It was created by Leslie Scott, and currently marketed by Parker brothers, a division of Hasbro. To play this game, players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then placed on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller structure. The game ends when the tower falls, or if any piece falls from the tower other than the piece being knocked out to move to the top. The winner is the last person to successfully remove and place a block.

It’s fun playing Jenga, and the nice thing about this game, you can play this game alone, with friends and your family. Everyone in the family can enjoy this exciting game but kid should be atleast 6 year-old because of the small parts.

Well, we have one now in the house,   I saw similar to jenga. And surprisingly the price was really cheap. If jenga is Php 899, this one  cost only Php88, cheap right?  Same with jenga, it composed of 54  pieces of wood blocks but unlike jenga with only one color,  the one I bought was colorful. It has a die which will decide what block you will stack or move. And same with traditional jenga, the game is to pull out a block without crashing the stack to win the game. Win by being the last player to remove a block without causing the block to crash.

Last Minute Book Parade Costume (DIY Tooth Fairy Costume)

Hello my tooth fairy. This was last minute book parade  photo photo_zpsebxk3lhk.jpgcostume of my daughter. I thought she will be using her old Sofia the First gown. It was the gown she wore during her 7th birthday.  The gown still fits on her but because two years had passed, I need to adjust the length. She didn’t like to wear it so i need to think of another book parade costume. 

It wasn’t compulsory for the grade 3 students but i decided to let her joined the event.  I searched easy costume and what i saw was tooth fairy costume. I find it easy so i chose this costume for her.

For the costume, she needs black leggings, black leotard, tutu and wings. She already has black leggings and tutu, so i bought black leotard only. I just fix the tutu because it was used long time ago already. I put tooth on her leotard using white felt paper. I added happy face with google eyes. Gladly, there was cheap fairy wings available. This wings already included headband and wand. I made a little changes by changing butterfly design into tooth on the wand and also to the headband. I matched her costume with pink flat shoes to match on her tutu. My effort on doing this has paid off because she liked it.
