Have you ever had a day when no matter how hard you try to stick on the schedule that you have set for the day, things seem to disagree with you and you end up not accomplishing anything at all? That’s what it’s like for me today. I was looking forward to a having a productive day (I actually have a to-do list to make sure I don’t forget anything) but things around me seems to fall apart that I started getting frustrated. Well, one thing actually – my laptop. I went online around 7a.m. hoping to finish my blog hopping tasks, when I noticed that the pages that I was trying to visit took so long to load. I initially thought that it was our internet connection but then when I tried using my smartphone (I asked my kids to check their phones as well) our internet connection is working fine. I was so frustrated not having accomplished as much as I planned that by the middle of the day after blog hopping, I decided to turn off my computer and decided to just do other things and take a nap afterwards. When I opened my computer again this afternoon, I was hoping to actually do the tasks that I have on my list but instead experienced the same thing. Pages seem to load like forever and what seem like a simple task took too long to finish. And since (for a non-techie person like me) Google, they say, is our best friend, I immediately searched for tips online on what I could do to help resolve my problem. So far I have deleted the files that need to be deleted and run an anti-virus and anti-malware scan on my computer. It seem to do the trick for now, hopefully I won’t be having anymore problem. Anyway, the day’s not over yet, I refuse to stay frustrated and I can still make this day as productive as I have initially planned.
Have a great weekend!
My internet connection has been acting up for over a week now and I noticed that loading a website gets too slow especially at night. It has really been frustrating because I usually attend to my blogging tasks at night when the kids are already in bed. There were even times when I was able to login to my Facebook account but I could not access my email and twitter account. Weird, right? Anyway, I went online earlier than usual today because I was hoping that my internet connection is faster during the day.Guess what? I am wrong. Sure, I can access a few sites like Facebook and my email account but I can’t access other websites and when I tried visiting some blogs, loading the homepage takes too long.
Aside from the other online tasks that needs to be done today, I need to finish four blog posts and this crappy internet connection will not stop me from doing what needs to be done. Just like what they say, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. I will make the most of this situation and focus my energy on more productive matters.
I hope you’re having a great week so far.
(By the way, I am seriously thinking of changing my internet service provider if things don’t improve in the coming days. I am just looking into other alternatives and find a more reliable provider).
One of the things that I love doing these days is joining online contests. I am always on the lookout for giveaways to join. And I became more enthusiastic about joining these giveaways when I started winning on some of them. Sure, I may have won one in every dozen of contests I have joined, but still, the chances of winning is bigger if I actually participate in them, right?
Anyway, I am truly happy about winning on some of them. Here are just some of my recent winnings:
Make or Break’s Biogesic Giveaway
Mom Fashionista’s Naturally Healthy & Beautiful Giveaway
Pasko sa Agosto – Swarovski Ruby Bracelet Giveaway
by JanzCrystalz Handcrafts
Brown Pinay’s Pasko sa Agosto $15 Paypal Cash Giveaway
I have also won Fotolia subscriptions wherein I can download photos, illustrations and vector images for free and some other prizes from international giveaways.
Lucky ? Could be. But I see them as blessings and I truly appreciate each and everyone of them regardless of their monetary value.
I hope you will all have a great weekend ahead. I have to go for now, I still have some giveaways to join….
