Trimming down

I still haven’t gotten full control over my weight management issues and yet another pill has been discovered to aid in fat burning together with proper diet and exercise.

I don’t know if eca stack is already available over here but there’s so much hype about this new product but just like any other weight loss management supplements, it’s supposed to help burn fats fast, boost your metabolism and increase your energy.

Personally, I’d still prefer that I undergo an exercise program coupled with a balanced diet for an effective weight loss program. But I guess it wouldn’t really harm to try out this newest medicine for as long as I will not overdose on it.


No sense of direction

If only life can be guided by a GPS device then I would have known what road to take and what alley not to pass through. I might have avoided the mishaps I encountered in my life.

For people like me without sense of direction, life is a trial and error thing which cannot be controlled by gadgets. Life tests your ability to decide and make choices without a map, without a tracking device. Your gadgets are your instincts, your gut feel and most of all, God’s innumerable signs. A lot of road blocks are built and numerous paths have been set up for you to trek. It’s up to you which gadget to use and where to go.


It would be wonderful to be a do-it-yourself mother. If there’s one skill that I lack, it’s the fact that I don’t know how to do minor repairs for simple broken things inside the house. Although I know some things by theory, I don’t apply them in real life. I’m scared to try out things like this because I might blow up my house and I still don’t know it.

I have a couple of air tools and other frequently-used household items needed for quick repairs. I figured it would be best to have tools like that ready for use just in case something gets broken. I could hammer in a couple of nails and screws here and there but I will leave the serious repairs to the experts. At least, the tools are there handy and accessible when I need them for emergency.

A realization

I feel bad about a lot of things – I’m getting bored with my work and there was this life-changing realization I have to face.

My marriage has reached its finish line and I’m seeking help from my father. This was an easy decision to make for myself because I know that I’ll be better off without the husband by my side. What made this a difficult decision was the fact that there’s a 4-year old involved and this is my primary and immediate concern. I can handle life changes but how will he do it at his age? These are some of the things I need to speak to him about.

There were suggestions for me to talk to my in-laws in the hope that they might be able to make their son realize what he’s doing. But honestly, I’d rather have the talk after I have spoken to my father when I have finally come up with an action plan and options. Why did I leave my mother out of this? Eventually, she will be in the picture but I chose not to make that happen for now.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to face my father with strength and resist the urge to cry. I haven’t cried for a long time and I’m scared about all these bottled up feelings I have in me. I don’t want to breakdown in front of him but if it need be to make me feel better, I guess it will happen.

I am hurting – not because of my failed relationship but because I broke my promise to my son that he will grow up with a complete family.

Personal Injury

I find it great that there are Chicago personal injury lawyers who provide services in the Chicago area for those who have been injured due to their work, transportation accidents, nursing home negligence, medical malpractice and the like. Personally, I would feel more comfortable going to a lawyer who specializes on these things rather than just go to someone who practices law in general. One is actually assured that these lawyers know the nitty gritty bits of how to go about claims in relation to these accidents or personal injuries.

I am not sure whether there are lawyers who specialize in these things over here but wouldn’t it be great if there’s a law firm who would offer this specialized need? The thought got me thinking of maybe, one day soon, when I finish my law studies, I might just specialize in this field.
