according to, we're naturally good at being unproductive.

Stalling, procrastinating, coming up with excuses why you should not get to work. “I just wanna check my email for 5 minutes, I swear”, and before you know it an hour has passed. Watching Youtube videos, reading your favorite blogs, sitting on Facebook. It is so easy to become distracted on the internet.

diggy offers 5 simple points on how not to be unproductive.

The Secret To Being Productive:
Resist the temptation of procrastinating.
Motivate yourself with the goal of achieving something.
Sit down and get to work.
Focus and dedicated your attention to your work for a few hours.
Rinse, wash and repeat.

the question is... does this apply to periods when everybody's preoccupied with a lot of things (read: christmas shopping) other than work? hehehehe! misa de gallo has already started, today's the second night, but still... a lot of writing and reviewing to do. hard to get started and focused when you still haven't figured out what kinds of presents to buy since the usual list has not been done at all. of course, most if not all peeps are only focused on christmas parties, making the almost nightly troop to the malls or scouring the best tiangges in town. aside from the idc ph xmas dinner, i haven't been going to the malls yet! tomorrow, we still have the last of our annual kris kringle idc ph style - something paradoxical! and guess what, i still don't have any idea on what to buy... i really need to get it going tonight.

i don't know if it's due to the cold weather that we have now or my missing out on my vitamins when i left for KL the other week... but the past 3 days have been flu days for me. coughing to get the phlegm out and blowing nose due to colds, coupled with aching joints. haaayyy..

good thing yesterday, the aching joints already went away. but still - the colds and that phlemagtic feeling are still here. i was already planning not to report for work last friday, but i didn't so that i can attend to a meeting. but today, i really couldn't. or else, the whole office will just bear with me barking like an askal.

this morning, migraine attack also came! splitting my head into two! i already took biogesic early in the morning and added dolfenal 250 towards noontime. but the headache persisted. and guess what took the pain away?! coffee!! hehehehe! surprising. really. because i always thought that coffee will make migraine worse. i guess that hot feeling and the right amount of caffeine stopped the headache! yeheey!

after that, i could have my lunch finally. my veggies were already turning black, so i quickly made something out of the puso ng saging and kangkong. sauteeing ground pork with garlic and onions, i added these veggies, water, cracked black pepper, salt... and voila, sinabawang gulay! another surprise on a monday again... it actually tasted good! i guess the kuripot (i don't want all these veggies go to waste) in me kicked in and i was able to come up with one nice pork + veggies soup.
