It will never be easy to say goodbye. On my 32nd birthday during the Holy Week, we had decided to finally put one of our dog’s to sleep.
Miriam was a shy but confident dog. But in the last weeks, her health was deteriorating quickly and no amount of medicine could stop it. She had developed renal failure.
I remember crying hard when I last approached her before I left for Makati that last weekend. On the car leaving the house, my nephew said that Miriam still managed to get up and peek through her place.
One last goodbye
The first quarter was about to end. I needed to use of all my leaves, but I did not have anywhere to go. For today, I took a day off to go to UP and request copies of my transcript.
It was not a chore before when I was still based in Marikina. But being from Makati on weekdays, I had to do the long traverse along EDSA just to reach Diliman.
While I love how vast UP Diliman is, it annoys me a lot why the cashier is at the far end of the Registrar. It is very counter-intuitive. There is a cashier downstairs, but it is often closed. Anyway, it was less tedious because I was with Ikle. We were done at around lunch time and had the whole afternoon to wait for the rush hour to subside. And that includes shenanigans around the campus.
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
Anyone running a website wishes to be approved on Google AdSense. Publishers hoping to monetize their content aims for this holy grail.
This rejection email is a common one. A quick search on my Gmail yielded about four of these. The last time I had tried applying was in December 2015, when I realized that there’s nothing more I can do to achieve this pipe dream.
The rejection email: ouch!
But with the optimism that arrived with 2017, I had a one last-ditch attempt to apply to Google AdSense. If this does not work, then nothing else will. However, my persistence and self-awareness paid off and I was surprised to receive this on my inbox yesterday:
Google Adsense approval email!
Aside from the Bayswater, the Roxanne is considered as one of the iconic styles from Mulberry. While the design itself has a smaller (Blenheim) and bigger (Rosemary) variety, the Roxanne hit the Goldilocks’ zone for being ‘just right’.
