peace, love, & lip gloss

hello!
Alliterations are amusing. Chandeliers, cheesecakes, and charm bracelets make me happy. My blog aims to spread pink, positive thoughts and pretty little things. Send me some love and kisses via mail@krissyfied.com.

Krissy, writer.

It has a nice ring to it. don't you think so? :p

I have long been wanting to attend writing workshops but they rarely come by. There was one back in August, a 3 days and 2 nights workshop in Tagaytay held by Ms. Tara Sering, but I was not able to attend it because of self-esteem issues. I haven't written stuff for so long (apart from my blog posts) that I really feel that I've lost my rhythm. I was afraid that if I cannot produce anything halfway decent then the workshop organizers will throw me off the cliff or something haha!

Enough about that, now here is something I am excited about! And it's not about shopping! Ö Thanks to Sis Anagon for blogging about it, I waited for announcements from Powerbooks through their Multiply site for this event. Ü

There is a big chance that I would be able to attend those workshops that will be held at the SM Megamall branch. But I need to apply for Vacation Leaves though, and I believe I am already out of VL credits =/ But my manager is supportive, so I really hope he can pull some strings for me.. Hehe. Meanwhile regarding those that will be held at the Greenbelt branch I have a feeling I will not be able to attend those because it's too far. Besides with my work hours of 6am - 3pm I am sure I would be really flustered by then.

I surely wish Sis Ana and I can attend these workshops. It would be a great way to enhance our skills, remember forgotten lessons, and revive my rhythm that I seem to have lost already. Besides this is an opportunity for us soul sisters to bond. Ü
