Happy Birthday To Me

For a department who started back in 2008 with only five (5) employees, to having seventy (70) employees six years after, Financial Planning & Analysis Shared Services (FPASS) has truly gone a long way.

The tricky thing with growth is that it often comes with struggles and difficulties. While it is common for everyone to have differences in opinions, attitudes and beliefs, FP&A is one step ahead in addressing these foreseeable shortcomings. Adapting to changes may be daunting for some but if the memories, events and activities shared by the team these last few months are a testament to how well FP&A is handling their growth, then FP&A is doing a pretty great job.accoustic

Missin One of My Bestie

One of my best friends is away. Miles and miles away as she is now in New Zealand. I guess she’s been there for almost six months now. We are speaking to each other almost everyday but still I am missing her. I miss our nonsense laughing and sharing of childish emotions.

She knows me very well and she knows that I can not stand a cold temperature. One time she sent me a picture of her in a snowy mountain. I said it looks like very interesting but I think I am gonna die in there. With the climate at its freezing point it is very important to know where to get cozy winter stuff such as http://www.cozywinters.com/storage/. At cozywinter.com you would be able to find variety of things that will help you organize your winter sporting equipment like Skis and Snowboards other sporting items such as Skateboards / Longboards, Wakeboards, Surfboards, Fishing Rods, Bicycles, Golf Bags, Garden Tools, and even wine bottles.

Going back to my friend, I am not actually wishing for her to come back but instead I would want to join her in new Zealand even though it would be colder than I thought.

All Time Low

Sometimes you really have to set your priorities and you have to determine which among them is the most important. Like for us parents we always want our children to have a bright future. My son is now in his second grade and for the first time in his schooling he got an average way below 90%. And I would like to blame myself for this. With us wanting to provide all the things we needed we utilized most of our time working to earn some more and the consequence of that is spending less or even no time to teach my son in his studies and so this was the outcome. The dilemma on this is that would it be okay to set aside the pride of pushing my son to become part of the honor roll or to let him enjoy school without much of a pressure simply because we don’t have much of time to do so. Guiding him in his studies and providing him all his needs are two different options but are of the same objective of giving your son the best of life that you can offer as a parent.
