1. What motivates you? Why?
-Honestly, my little boys. Every time I think about them I give my best on things I do. Like my love for photography, I try to study things that way I can take beautiful photos of them:) And of course, my man-the love of my life:) Naks! :D

2. What happens when you can't be motivated to do something you need to do? How do you get the motivation back?
-I usually get irritated right away.Cranky and grumpy all the same:) The husband knows how to make me happy and smile after all. I don't know how he does things but he's a savior! :D

3. Are there any changes in the state of your world that need some motivation to do? What they are is optional, but how will you motivate yourself to do it?
-Hmm..not that I know of. I guess, I just need to be motivated to not shop like always! LOL

Degree Online

Want to finish your schooling through a degree online? I actually saw one! This school offers graduate online degree programs in business administration, information technology, human services, public health, public safety, and psychology, and bachelor’s degree programs in business, information technology, and public safety. One of the top online school offers only the best out there. And if ever I will go back to school or let say refresh my memory, I’d love to go back to school through online. And this one really sounds interesting. I finished my bachelor’s degree 8 years ago and I only worked for a full 2 years through that time. And if ever I love to go back to work a refresh degree would be appropriate for me. So, if you think this is what you’re looking for then check it out! Never too late to go back to school and learn again!

Lead Test Kit

The husband and I has been talking about buying a Lead Test a few weeks ago. We just gotten tons of new toys this weekend and it never hurt to check and be safe with those toys! Specially that I have a 10 months old baby, it's better to be safe than sorry. You see, this 10 months old son eats everything he can grasp at his hand. I mean anything! With 8 teeth at 10 months, I'm sure you can understand that I worry a lot. I've heard horror stories about babies eating the lead paint of those toys. So, when I saw this $1 Lead Paint Kit online, I know I have to get one myself! It's good for some household items that you think has a lead paint on it too. I am liking this site because it has list of toys that has tested lead on it. Those company should be held liable for what they are doing. Did you know lead can cause a lot of problems with babies and kids? I just hope you know and are educated with this things! With this Lead Test, there are news you might want to read. The kit is pretty easy to use, it's Non-Toxic, it instantly turn pink when lead is present and can be able to work on any surface.

I was reading the recommendation of this site and so far I am really liking what I read. To all my online friends and Mommy visitors here this is a great site that you might be interested. It is good for our family specially our little ones! You just never know. I have to post this here as well. An excerpt from the site.

A quick rundown of the dangers of lead.

- Lead provides no known biological benefit to humans.
- Lead can produce adverse effects on virtually every system in the body; it can damage the kidneys, the nervous system, the reproductive system, and cause high blood pressure. It is especially harmful to the developing brains of fetuses and young children.
- There may be no lower threshold for some of the adverse effects of lead in children. In addition, the harm that lead causes to children increases as their blood lead levels increase.

Check out that kit and that site it's very helpful for us parents!!!

Safety

Accidents can happen all the time even if you are just walking and setting down! So, when I've heard about a someone I know who will work to a ship touring around the world, I thought it can be fun! But working at a large vessel can be very dangerous. Aside from they're far from their families, they work loads just to have something in the table! Unfortunately thousands of workers are injured each year while performing their jobs, many of whom lose their lives.So, this maritime lawsuit is a great help for them and for the family who's left behind who have the rights to financial aid or compensation. It's really sad but it's true! I hope that the person I know will really take more extra care.

Four for Friday

Q1 - Special: In addition to standard menu items, many restaurants offer one or more specials of the day. If your waiter or waitress describes an appealing special but neglects to mention its price, would you order it without asking about the cost?

+ Most of the time the husband never really ask how much it cost. He's just too cool. But me, I always ask everything first. There were a few times, I just never mind asking when I had this new friends. haha I think I'm just careful sometimes.

Q2 - : Earlier this year, pictures showing the Enawene Nawe tribe of Amazon indians aiming weapons at an airplane overhead made headlines across the United States. The photos, according to the producers of ABC's Nightline television show, inspired them to travel deep into the Amazon to meet the Enawene Nawe, a tribe that reportedly has never before been filmed for television. Do you think there is something inherently wrong with outsiders interacting with or filming never before seen indigenous tribes, or does studying their way of life outweigh any potential negative side effects caused by such actions?

+ I have no idea.

Q3 - Housing: In describing the recent financial crisis here in the U.S., President Bush said: "Easy credit -- combined with the faulty assumption that home values would continue to rise -- led to excesses and bad decisions. Many mortgage lenders approved loans for borrowers without carefully examining their ability to pay. Many borrowers took out loans larger than they could afford, assuming that they could sell or refinance their homes at a higher price later on. Optimism about housing values also led to a boom in home construction. Eventually the number of new houses exceeded the number of people willing to buy them. And with supply exceeding demand, housing prices fell. And this created a problem: Borrowers with adjustable rate mortgages who had been planning to sell or refinance their homes at a higher price were stuck with homes worth less than expected -- along with mortgage payments they could not afford. As a result, many mortgage holders began to default." Do you believe homeownership is a privilege or a right?

+ It is a privilege other countries don't have!

Q4 - Television: What is your current favorite television show -- one that you make a point of watching during its regularly scheduled time as often as humanly possible?

+ Gossip Girl, Grey's and LOST! I want to laugh, smile and get excited! :D

Going to School

A friend of mine wants to go to this beauty schools that we saw online. Well, she’s really a good hairstylist and aside from the fact that she can manage to make up like a pro! She’s really good at what she do and her being creative in so many ways! I often think, I want to be just like her! I admire her courage and her patience! And I know that she can make it big someday! Right now, she’s stuck in a place where she doesn’t want anyway. And I hope this school she wants to go to will come true! I’ve read that this school is fastest growing beauty school in the country. And they bring their unique way approach to cosmetology education to new markets and making the best out there! And as part of the said training, students provide high-quality, discounted salon services to the public under expert faculty supervision. Which is a good idea! I’m gonna tell that friend again! Who knows, right? :)
