It’s about time to get off your desk, go out there, and do something fun. And by fun, we mean going on a quick trip to Pampanga to score great deals on books at the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale, or buying a ticket to one of the many concerts happening this month. You could also help a stray cat out and give it a new home. The possibilities are endless and with the second half of 2019 starting, you better start living your life to the fullest because who knows what the following year might bring.
