Last Friday i received 3 cards. One from Poland and one from Italy (a private exchange) and another one from Australia. I love seeing my postcard collection growing. I can’t believe that i can actively card exchange with anyone from around the world.
My collection started in 1995 and it was only between me and a girl in New York. So i have tons of cards from New York. She also sends me cards from her trips. We actively exchange for 2 years and then it stopped. Although our exchange stopped, I never stopped asking friends from other places to send me cards if they have time. So discovering postcrossing the other year made me feel so lucky. Unfortunately, i become a member of postcrossing but failed to send cards for a year. It is just this year (3 months back) that i decided to be active again.
So far, i have received a total of 19 cards and the top sender countries are the following:
Germany – 4
Netherlands – 3
Finland – 2
I received a total of 21 cards and the top countries where i sent most of my cards are the following:
USA – 5
China – 4
Finland – 4
Germany – 3
I know more cards are coming. And i know too that i need to scan some of the received cards to be placed in my wall. Oh time time i just need time.
I envy many of my girls friends who lose weight naturally. Give them lots of problems – emotional, financial, spiritual then in 2 weeks, they lost 10 pounds. I think they are so great – it’s like they are using quick weight loss pills. But not me.
When i have problems in whatever forms – I look ok but i crave for comfort foods and most of the carb rich foods. I know it’s wrong to satisfy my cravings but just can’t say no at times when the food is already placed in front of you.
I am not depress today but i did enjoy this:
Meaning, depress or not, i enjoy pasta and the difference is that – i seem never to get full when i am not feeling well emotionally. Yay! I should be more mindful of what ill be eating and how much now because am not getting any younger anymore. And I still need to lose alot of accumulated unwanted weight that am having now.
My mind was traveling far when i took these photos. Someone was very far but looking up at the sky gave me a comfort thought that we are looking up the same sky. 🙂
Thanks to the sky watch team for this great photo meme:
In the gym where i do my exercise, we have the TV and by the time i am on the treadmill local news starts. One of the bad news this afternoon was a bus and trooper collision along the highway from Iligan City to Cagayan de Oro City – a tragic accident that killed 3 individuals, two of whom are children. The accident happened in a place where tertiary medical facilities never existed. According to the news, the victims arrived at the hospital dead already. I think that maybe if they were subscribed to a medical assistance program then even while they are on the road, they will be given immediate medical care – if that is the case then who knows those children are still alive.
Knowing the story behind the collision made me think that the incident should be a lesson to all drivers out there – never try to over-take another vehicle unless you are so sure that there is no upcoming vehicle especially in a one way lane or road. I just feel sad for those who died because of a driver’s negligence.
