20 Holiday Survival Guide by Micah: #s 1 – 5

BY Nancy G. Janiola IN No comments

Breeze through December’s mishaps and misadventures and have your best Christmas vacation ever!

1. BUDGET CUT
You weren't able to save up and you have no money to buy gifts.
Do good: Make some money by caroling with neighbors (possible? Imposible?) or have a bake sale with friends.  Or, unleash your creativity and make your own gifts! Don’t worry handmade doesn’t mean ugly. Browse through you’re your favorite beautiful websites for ideas and inspiration.

2. UNWILLING ENTERTAINER
You were forced to perform at your family’s Christmas reunion.
Look Good: Even if you feel like you’re only embarassing yourself, you can make sure you look your best.Even better, grab your siblings and cousins and put on a memorable show!

3. PARTY PLANNING STRESS
You’ve been tasked to organize the class Christmas party and you’re overwhelmed by all the things you have to do.
Feel Good: First, take a deep breath. Then start calling your classmates and delegate tasks. Hey, een Santa has his little helpers!

4. LAZY MORNINGS
You didn’t wake up on the first day of 'Simbang Gabi' (rooster mass) and now you don’t feel like going to mass on the remaining days.
Do Good: Make it a group date! Arrange to go with your friends or your parents and have breakfast after. The company will motivate you to get up early.

5. WARDROBE WOES
You have nothing to wear for a holiday costume party or a formal affair.
Look Good: Borrow, borrow, borrow! Ask your friends if they have stuffs in their closets that you can use – they probably do!

Got something to say? Shoot it! You know where, yes?

Advance Happy Holiday!

See you again for the remaining tips!
