Frustrations...

Please don't laugh...I just have to vent midway!!! I am soooo not tech savvy! I know that, I admit it.
As you can see, I've been trying to clean up my page. I added that "Pages" gadget which I thought would be a breeze and make it much more organized but it's been giving me a headache the size of a watermelon. P*&A!!!
I thought that simply dragging my post to my preferred page would do the trick. After dragging some 100+ posts, I realized that it wasn't doing anything!
I am officially at war with my laptop right now. Is what I'm trying to do possible at all? I think so, I've seen it on other people's pages but how do they do it? Do I need a pro to help me thru this? Do you know any pros?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hay Naku! Nakakainis! Can I Just Add!!! (in tagalog and english, para mas feel!)
Kase, I am also very frustrated with my daughter's school projects. I won't say na which school basta medyo nakakainis, impractical and magastos!!!
I remember when I was in pre-school til Prep my art activities would consist of just different art paper cut-outs. techniques using watercolor, crayons, etc. Basta at the beginning of the year they would tell my parents to provide me with a box of crayons, watercolor, oslo paper, colored paper and/ or construction paper tapos the whole year our projects would revolve around those materials.
On the contrary, at my daughter's school (she is 4 yrs old and in pre-school) require her to bring kung ano-ano for their projects. Ang daming kailangan. I'm always en route to national bookstore. Buti nalang there are two branches na walking distance from my house kungdi mas nakakagigil pa!
My daughter is only 4 and they ask me to buy acrylic paint for her to take to school. Ano? Ang mahal mahal ng acrylic paint! And she ended up not even using it. It was left in school and I have no idea what happened to it. Also, they require elaborate costumes. This year she needed two! A cowboy costume for united nations day (with clear guidelines as to what goes into a cowboy costume) and a halloween costume (kailangan may theme, had to be any character from disney or cartoon network). I remember as a kid in ICA during UN week, our teacher would just make us create our assigned flag using colored paper, glue and bbq sticks. Yun lang. Ito may pa sash-sash pa! (I admit my daughter looked adorable naman in her costumes and todo picture taking ako, pero ang gastos lang).
And the bottomline, what got me writing this, is her most recent project. They were required to bring an empty Pringles or Pik-Nik can. Seryoso, specified ang brand! In the first place, as a mom, I try not to have junk food available in our house. Plus as a green advocate, I really try not to purchase products na super hindi recyclable ang packaging. Ok, they are learning how to save. Gagawin daw nilang piggy bank sa school. Yun ang project. Pero ang clincher, si mommy, AKO, ang kailangan mag cover ng can with metallic crepe paper. I tried, ang hirap ang p*#a! That's why I'm writing this! HAHA. Pero here's my point, magkano lang ang piggy bank sa toy kingdom? P40 pesos? Tapos na, ayos na. Magkano ang isang lata ng pringles/pik-nik? P80?? e isang roll ng metallic crepe paper? P30? acrylic paint pa? at ang hirap nya gawin! Sana they asked nalang kung mayroon ng piggy bank yung daughter ko sa house tapos yun nalang embelish nila. Or pwede naman lata ng gatas! Hay naku, after this I will try my best to make balot that stupid can with crepe paper again! Paano na ang outfit post??? HAHAHA
I feel much better now. Thank you fellow bloggers..and readers....just had to do this...

sometimes it's really better to say it in our own language. nakakainis nga minsan. ang buhay talaga ay parang bato, it's hard. (corny)

i particularly enjoyed this post... probably i thought you were just in front of me, talking about the school... but honestly, it is the first time i heard a school require a "specific" costumes... usually they say "any kind" or recycled materials... i'm so excited to read all your posts, thanks for dropping by, otherwise, i wouldn't discover you...
