032. Where's the light I used to know?

A month ago, I saw this on my Facebook news feed. If I'm not greatly mistaken, this was posted by Nylon. The dance routine took my breath away! There was grace, strength, and fluidity in the dance routine that I kept repeating the whole video!

Philip Chbeeb and Renee Kester are the dancers in this beautiful dance routine.

031.Reasons why I love Downton Abbey

Ever since my older sister told me about this period drama, I was intrigued. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to watch all the episodes on TV as I wasn't able to catch it! However,  when she visited home, she brought with her the DVD sets of Seasons 1 and 2 (Later on,  through my older sister, we acquired a boxed set of all four series)! 

Downton Abbey, as some of you may already know, is a drama set in the fictionalized village of Downton in Yorkshire, England. It chronicles the lives of the inhabitants of the estate with the same name. But for the benefit of those who don't (which is nearly impossible, but anyway), here's a few details that may help.

030. I know you read the paper - the one that they call a queen

More than month ago, my friend Lorie messaged me if I wanted to review a book, to which I said yes. It was the book of her friend, which sadly isn't published--I wish it would!

Hustle. The word says a lot. It means energetic activity; drive. It also means "to work hard aggressively". It sadly has negative connotations, as negative as the word work. And why is that such a dirty word? Work isn't bad. It really isn't.

Here are a few things that I learned from the book:

1. Work isn't bad. And boy, we're made to work.

2. Passion, passion. This is the main ingredient!

3. It's not always about myself. There should be a valuable contribution to society.

I could tell you more, but it's better if you could read the book yourself. Best of all, you can get it for FREE! Can't it be any more wonderful? 

Free download available here!
And it comes with a workbook! Cool!

029. Tell me how not to give...

..a shit about someone.

I met this person, and there was chemistry. At least I thought there was. So what's a girl to do when it isn't there anymore?
