Survi-BER: one who survives the challenges of the BER months. These 4 BER months (September, October, November, December) normally scare the hell out of me. It poses a great threat to my budget and time.
But no matter how big the challenges are and how much gravity the threats poses on me, I (try) to manage to pass through it. Not by playing dedma, because sweeping things aside wont really make them away nor solve it. Be brave facing it.
One challenge for me is the budget I need to allocate for the many celebrations BER months has in store for me. Birthdays, christening, wedding and Christmas parties. The celebrations are endless. And these are not usually on the list but additional. That would make me end up tightening my budget. But if it calls spending them on my family and frineds, budgeting wont be that hard at all. Might lessen spending on some not-so-important matters like going out or buying stuff. And, after all, it's only for 4 months.
Another one is the time I need to do everything that needs to be done. From preparing parties to attending them, I need to maximize every little second so as not to miss a single bit of fun and memories. These are the times that your presence is badly needed. Hard to miss if you don't want to be the topic of their chismis. So I have to make way and try to insert bits and pieces of these activities in my daily schedule.
Time and budget at these crucial months of the year may be at risk if not played properly. So even before the -ber months come, we must all be prepared. Save some for the rainy days, ika nga! Make the most of the days where things are at sale and our time permits.


  1. pros and cons of the BER months nga talaga.. :) hello. visiting here. :)

  2. Sana mag post po kayo ulit ng mga bago... Update naman po sir...

  3. Haha kaya dapat bago pa mag BER, ready ka na. Kasi aBERya ang aabutin mo kapag wala kang pang aginaldo sa mga inaanak mo :)


Gladly appreciate it if you will let me hear your thoughts! Thanks!
