I have an uncle who lives in his briefcase. His work takes him to different countries in a week, and there have been times when he was at three countries in a day, with one of them being a stop over. This usually happens when he is in Europe and the Middle East.
So how does he do it? Pack lightly and never suffer from jet lag? And never even miss a flight or look haggard after flying then going straight for a conference meeting?
He once shared to us that he packs like a European, he rolls his clothes (never folds) so that it won’t need ironing preventing creasing too. He also tries to bring wardrobe in basic colors – black, grey, navy, boring colors that one would not notice if it has been slept on or stained (wise thinking!). He also has mastered the art of freshening up in every comfort room he happens to stop and encounter during transit. To prevent jet lag, he keeps his watch on whatever timezone he lives in. He also takes advantage of the airport transfer offered by travel agencies. He often does it ahead of time and online. That way, when he arrives at an airport, especially if he just needs to switch flights, he would just go straight to the shuttle service and drive away!
Comment: Coming from a wife who is perpetually finding ways to have her house more efficient and functional as it is small and cramped, seeing those bunk beds from Mom’s is like seeing a space saving solution and a nicely designed bed for my kids combined. I love how storage can be part of sleeping in – I would have never thought of that! Username: Jane twin bunk bed
I have watched three movies, read two books and have about twenty recommended iPhone applications for you guys. You just need to wait for a little while longer. I will be writing all about them this week.
And this time, it’s a promise!
Nope. But how I wish it was!
My desk has been with me for almost five months, and I really have no complains with it, I can focus on work, sit straight and have my own space in the house. It is just that whenever I see beautiful desks around the web like the one pictured above, it makes me wish to order new office furniture that replicates everything.
But I got to make do with what I have.
I just need a computer chair. Really need one.
I will never be techno savvy, despite the fact that I own most of the gadgets one must need to be classified as such.
I admit that.
It took me lose to two months to finally try and install our Linksys router after my husband refused to budge and told me that I should learn how to install stuff (he is the one responsible for installing my computer software, the printer, the tablet and calibrating E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G related to my computers). Since we needed wi-fi to fully use my iPhone, I decided I need to get it done – and what do you know? It took me TWO minutes to have it installed.
So now I don’t need to get up with two eyes closed so I can check my mail. Once the alarm goes off, I grab the iPhone, and with one eye, check which work came in when I was in dreamland.
Now my kids, ages 9 and 4, want one too. My 9 year old says he “needs” it for Facebook and reading Archie comic books (I downloaded four books for him) and my 4 year old tells me “Mom, that’s my toy.”
