How long should I date someone?

I recently entered a whole new level of relationship with someone. We are not yet officially on a relationship but we are dating. I ask myself, “How long should I date this guy before saying yes to him?” I like this person very much but I wanted to know him more first.

It has been 3 weeks and he had been wonderful. He’s a gentleman and kind. He always hold the door for me, which I find really sweet. Falling in love is a great factor for me to start a relationship. I wanted to know and feel that he really loves me before I say yes.

I wonder if it will take several months or I will wake up tomorrow knowing that I already fell for him. Or maybe I will not know it until it’s almost too late. I just want him to stay a little longer and get to know me more. I guess we really maximize the point of dating after all.

My First Business Opportunity

As a single mother I always make sure that I have enough to provide for my kid’s need. I am never at ease that I have only one job to sustain both our needs. That is why I make sure that I have a couple of other extra small jobs on the side.

That is when I thought of opening a small retail business of handbags at wholesale. I have a very close friend who owns a bag factory so I can get their products at a lower price. I have been doing this business for almost 6 months now. So far I’m doing good. I have couple of regular customers and I even have a small space on our city’s weekly bazaar. I am so thankful and blessed for this wonderful opportunity that was given to me.

Goal for this Year

For this year I have been thinking of starting my very own business which definitely involves food. It can either be baked, fried, boiled, grilled goodies. I just know that I can make this kind of business grow with my passion for eating and my dedication for cooking, I know I can.

Here are my ideas. Since as of the moment I am lacking necessary baking instrument essentials, I will start with no bake goods. I’ve been thinking about making small servings of no bake cakes and cheesecakes in a jar. Then I also thought about doing cake pops that can be customized according to the clients’ needs. I have also given a thought on doing different kinds of sandwiches that I can sell in schools and office pantry as well. I have been doing a lot of thinking as you can see.

My goal is that by the end of this month I will be able to start this small business officially. Nothing can stop me from reaching this dream of becoming my own boss.

The Social Media Ranting

Sometimes we think irrationally out of anger. How many times have you seen people rant on Facebook and Twitter? We see them all the time, some have weird ways of saying things and others just let out the anti-social side in them burst.

Should we be happy about these? Of course you would say that it’s no way good to see people’s rants on our newsfeeds but social media has feelings, they even have more feeling now than watching drama series. Because of social media we are able to express something that we cannot express in reality; because reality is scary and with social media we think that it’s alright to say things we want to say because they are not able to see our weaknesses.

That in reality we tremble saying those things or worse we can never mellow down our feelings and instead of saying it we let our fist do the talking. So I guess online rants are for weak people who either cannot deal with their anger or scared enough to face the people they want to convey their feelings to. We can’t be strong all the time so all we could is just rant about.

Sleep Just Keeps Evading Me

I’ve been feeling quite tired recently. I think this is because I lack sleep. Even if I try to sleep early, I still end up waking up at two in the morning and not having a complete 8 hours of sleep.

The end result is that I still feel exhausted to the point that I have trouble breathing. I haven’t turned to Google for self- diagnosis but I sure hope this isn’t anything serious. I’m just trying to look for ways to adjust by calming myself and trying to relax with a good book. And then hopefully, my body clock fixes itself so that I could get the whole 8 hours of sleep and I could get well- rested.

It’s really difficult going to work without energy. It’s like battling against myself while struggling with a load of tasks. It’s also just bad timing because I would really love to finally get that promotion and I don’t want my boss to use my health as another reason to delay it.
