Social security crisis: A myth or not

Don’t you think it’s unfair that you contribute a portion of your pay for social security, when in fact they’re saying that they will soon start paying out more benefits that it receives in contribution, as a result, they may no longer exist when we retire? Is this just a myth or is there some truth to this sad projection? If we can’t get any social security benefits in the future, what’s the point of contributing now? Arrgg! Well, but that’s just my two cents!

Opportunity outside home

Would it be nice to have the opportunity to be a work-at-home-mom? Actually, I enjoy being a stay-at-home-mom, but what if my baby doesn’t need me anymore? Would there still be a place for me to work out there? I am thinking of going back to school. I mean probably just associate degrees that could make me get at least into tech jobs. And I think the health care field is the best option.

Just the One I was looking for

Look how gorgeous this coffee table is! The moment I saw it I knew it was the perfect table I was looking for. I have been wanting to buy a coffee table but nothing really stood out for me at any of the furniture stores that I've looked at. So I tried searching online hoping to find a unique piece that I could add to our humble living room. Lo and behold, I've found this elegant piece on I was quite reluctant to purchase an important piece of furniture over the internet but I got convinced by its great reviews about this product. And it doesn't come with an outrageous price tag as well which was a great thing. Now I am excited to look for accent rug, new throw pillows and probably more wall decor to go with our couch and coffee table. I have some coordinating colors in mind and I can't wait to add some touch of elegance to our space.

Happy Graduation!!!

Officially school is over for my sister. She just graduated from Nursing school last Friday. She made us all proud. Now I can say all three of us have finished college and I thank my parents for the guidance and support and of course for instilling in us the importance of education. This may be the end of school work but it's definitely the start of more challenging experiences for her in the real world. She's just gonna take a little breather then she's gonna head out for a tougher objective which is to take review classes then take the licensure exams. Good luck to you my dearest sister! I love you and I am so proud of you.

Watch out for electronic pickpocketers

In a lot of countries including the Philippines, pickpocketing is unfortunately common. Some of my friends and relatives have become victims of these despicable people. The sad thing is that many of them even make pickpocketing their means of living. Having done it so many times they are so used to the act that it had become natural for them. Amazingly, most of the time you won’t even realize you’ve been pickpocketed until you reach out for your purse or wallet and find out it’s no longer there. Now in the more developed countries like the U.S., hi tech pickpocketing has been becoming a trend. Yes, thieves have employed electronic ways of stealing. Your credit cards don’t have to end up in the hands of these people before they can steal from you. You could lose valuable information even without the criminals touching your purse or wallet. Scary huh!

Backyard fun

People that love the outdoors always look forward to the warm weather in the spring and summer time. Who wouldn’t? It is a perfect time to hang out with family and friends especially when there’s outdoor fire pits that would certainly add some warm ambiance to an outdoor patio area. It’s the best place to entertain guests in a lively conversation or probably enjoy some time alone in a romantic setting in front of a flickering blaze. Wish we had a spacious backyard or a deck or something, it would have been a nice home project to make it look cozy for family hang-outs and stuff.

Jammie girl

It has started to warm up lately. I should be putting away my jammies now that it feels uncomfortable wearing it to bed in a warmish weather. It’s time to take the sleeveless tanks and shorts out of the storage and start wearing them at bedtime. Unlike some women who like to dress provocative lingerie to bed, I actually prefer wearing cotton jammies. I don’t think I’d ever try wearing corset tops. The most I could do maybe is sleep on a chemise. The silky ones are very comfortable to sleep on actually. See, I’m more on comfort rather than looking seductive, lol.
