Day 3 : And so I missed a day

Okay. I wasn’t able to blog yesterday so today is Day 3 still. I am still not done with my apps @_@ but I did a lot of mommy work – and I mean A LOT.

I am beginning to realize that maybe it is really impossible for me to be a full time hands-on mom and wife – and be a productive app developer at the same time – and a blogger too. I really have to figure out how I can juggle all my activities in my limited 24 hours (make than 16 since I also have to sleep).

Anyhow, tomorrow, I have to teach Yana and help her review her previous lessons for the second half of her 3rd Periodical quiz come Saturday (She’s having the first half tomorrow) – and I also have to teach Ysha and Yza – and I think they will learn how to read 3-letter words soon. Maybe they will learn to read first before they will start talking… Anyhow, I still have to figure out how to teach them to talk properly. Continue reading →

Day 2 : And so I did…

Hello me 🙂 I think I have been productive today. I was able to do most of my mommy activities – maybe a bit more because I was able to wash the kid’s dirty clothes. I was able to teach Ysha and Yza — and Yana… but I missed Biboy’s Starfall session… I’ll do that tomorrow.

What I wasn’t able to do, however, are my SoapboxSketcher duties. I’m still not finished with the Photobooth and it’s already late now so I think I won’t be able to finish it ‘coz if I try to, I won’t be able to wake up early for Yana’s school. Anyhow, I will try to finish everything tomorrow. Continue reading →

2015. Blogging. Start. Now.

Again, it has been months since I have blogged here – and I cannot say that I’m really busy. Maybe I’m just not in the mood to blog and maybe I should change that. And maybe, I should start blogging more so I would be more productive because blogging about what I do helps me evaluate my status, my goals, my productivity – or the lack of it.

Anyhow, let me start with a bit of good news – that the Lord has answered my prayers and He has helped me get through my financial troubles last December. My blogs have earned well that month… and now, I just have to make sure my earnings would stay the same. And I hope I won’t fail at that. I really should start moving…. and trying to earn more again… Continue reading →

Dear Lord

Dear Lord,

Please help me become a productive person. Please help me be better at what I’m doing. Kayo na po ang bahala sakin. Amen.

Love,
Ellen

More Android App Issues on Eclipse

So here I go again with more android lessons for myself…

Problem:

The container ‘Android Dependencies’ references non existing library android-support-v7-appcompat/bin/android-support-v7-appcompat.jar or any .jar file which is supposed to be inside a bin folder.

Solution:
1. Project >>> Clean the library of the missing. jar. (so it builds the .jar inside the bin folder)
2. Project >>> Clean your actual project/app
*** Do not clean both folders at the same time Continue reading →
