People I adore…

Oprah Winfrey… I like the way she’s conquered the world through empowering women with knowledge and freedom to express themselves.

Mariah Carey… I just hope I have her voice and can sing the way she does.

Michael Jackson… Plastic surgery aside, he is after all The King of Pop and there is a reason and one hell of talent to back that up.

Michael Jordan… for me, he defines what a true basketball player is– in and out of the court.

Tyra Banks… I love the way she expresses herself and inspire everyone by showing the world that she is just a person like everyone else.

Tinkerbell… I just like her a lot (she’s not a real person, though). Talking about sexyness with an attitude.

Drew Barrymore… She’s Drew Barrymore. Need I say more?

Shakira… Oh I wanna be able to do that belly shakin thing!

Will Smith… The body… the HUMOR… the wit… the dance moves…

My list goes on….

Paper Clay Hobby

I’ve discovered a new hobby! Paper clay art. It’s this art stuff where you make use of a cardboard or a glass or a wood with a drawn picture or design on it. Then you place and scatter the colorful paper clay on the design without covering the outline. The finish product will produce a design with an embossed effect, which you can frame later and hang on the wall. I bought the design last Tuesday, but I just started doing it with it last night. It was fun and relaxing. I hope to finish it by next week b’coz I’m excited to see the finish product. I chose a little fairy design with 12 colorful paper clay pots. So, I better get going to finish it soon.

LIST TO BE UPDATED…

After My Month Is Over

Welcome 2007! I’m a bit late for that remark now 🙂 So today I have time, I can tell you about what happened to me for the past month. Well, I turned a year older; resigned from my job; got a new PC; updated my iPod (well, trying to learn how to); got my hair relaxed; read a few books on self improvements; renewed my NBI clearance; updated my blog sites (check out maronne.multiply.com, too) still in the process of cleaning my room; watched a few movies; preparing myself for my new job next week (got new shoes!); just hanging around at home…

So here now I face 2007 with what? A new attitude? A new look? A new insight about life? Hmmm, probably with all those mentioned. It was like a rollercoaster ride last year and most things didn’t turn out well as expected, or as hoped for. For half of the year I was like struggling with many things. Most of them were what people would say just things that I just bother myself with. Kinda felt like being in limbo. I really don’t know. Is that what people would call “depression” period? Could be, could be not. I felt like so troubled, so frustrated, so worried. But, now I feel like I’ve overcome that phase in my life. I am now more ready to face challenges of the busy world out there. Maybe I just needed a new environment or some new things to start up with like a new job, new clothes, new look, etc.

Right now, I have to concentrate on working on with my determination to make things done — really make things done this time. No more wasting time (blogging is not wasting time, right?) I’d do things one at a time. Control my spending habit. Check out many things that could contribute to my skills and talents. Read more. Improve on my writting skills. Everything that I feel has slipped right out of me, I want them all back. My enthusiasm in life and in meeting new people and about learning new things, I want it back. I want to not be afraid to try out things like driving out to EDSA and around Makati or Ortigas, where there’s a lot of one way roads, parking lots MMDAs and Traffic Aids. I have to learn that damn driving thing!

Breathe… One thing at a time… Yes, one at a time…
