My Personal Goals for 2011

In my previous post about How to Set Your Personal Goals, I told myself to sit down and write down my lifetime goals and my smaller goals.  I would like to write here what my personal smaller goals are for 2011.  These will serve as my guide for my final To-Do list and hopefully this would give me the boost in accomplishing what I plan for this year. I pray that at the end of the year, I could look back at this goals and say "goals accomplished."

I've categorized my goals as to spiritual, financial, physical and family.

  • As for spiritual, I would really like to stick to my daily quiet time with the Lord. I must admit that I failed to be consistent on this the past year so I would like to start anew

  • For the financial aspect, I'm so thankful to God and to my husband. God has been good in giving my husband the job to sustain our family needs. I'm also thankful to my husband that he is a very responsible man. But I would also like to help in my own little way.

I've been writing for HubPages for more than a year now and I am amazed at how profitable it has been. As I've shared in my previous post Making Money at Home with HubPages, as of that writing, I was earning about $20-25 Google Adsense income a month. But now, I'm earning about $45 plus per month.

In view of that, I would like to challenge myself to write more hubs (articles). My target is to write about 100 hubs this year. So, that is about 8 hubs per month or 2 hubs per week.  I'm also working part-time as an online freelancer, but I think writing hubs will be more profitable. Compared to freelancing where I get paid one time, in writing hubs, I get paid over and over for my writing as long as I keep it published online (on HubPages).  It is sort of a source of PASSIVE INCOME for me.

By the way, if you would also like to earn by writing on HubPages, let me know (use my contact form or leave a comment here), maybe I could help. I could give you tips. What's the catch? Well , nothing much. I'm just hoping you would sign up (it's free to join) through my referral link.

  • For the physical aspect, I know how important our health is.  Since I gave birth to my daughter 2 years ago, I still haven't reached the body weight I like. Before giving birth, I weighed about 76 kg and now I'm 63 kg.  The body weight I'm aiming for is about 50 kg, a difference of 13 kg.  So, I would like to lose at least 1 kg or 2 lbs per month this year to reach that goal.  How I am going to do that? I still haven't thought much about it but one thing for sure, I would need to be more active and eat less.

  • With regards to my family, I would really like to have some devotional time as a family. I bought a kids' one-year devotional and I would like us to read it together and share thoughts on it and pray. This is a must if we want our kids to grow up knowing and loving God and His Word.  
Aside from that, I would also like to be more organized at home. My first project is actually finishing up all the laundry for ironing. Would you believe I have about a luggage of clothes that need to be ironed?  That would actually mean that I should really prioritize what I should do with my computer, because it does take much out of my time.  I would also need the help of my kids in keeping the house clean. Got to have that chore chart ready.  It will not only help in the delegation of house chores but it will also teach my kids to be helpful and responsible.

Now, that I've put these goals written down, I need to work on my final To-Do list.  Need to work fast on that since we're almost into the third week of January.  Oh well, that's it for this post.


these are great. good luck to your resolution/goals.

Thanks. Hopefully at the end of the year, I could shares a good evaluation report.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice. Image taken from When we came back to the Philipines , I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
