Similarly, developing an organized blog post was my biggest obstacle. I had my blog post ideas and article snippets scattered into different pages of my organizer with just a few phrases and keywords and nothing else.

What Men Should Never Say After Lovemaking

1) "I was kidding about being sterile, you know."

6) (Sniff, sniff) "Is that sea-foods?"

Braving the Waves of Bolinao Beach » One Last Summer Escape

We had the first rain of May last Friday that signaled the end of summer. It also reminds us of the few remaining weeks to enjoy the sun before the gloomy rainy season arrives. I’m scheduled to attend our town’s 100th anniversary celebration but cancelled it in the last minute to join my officemates on a trip to Pangasinan to attend the Pugo Barangay fiesta and enjoy Bolinao’s famous beaches.
