College graduation gift

In three months’ time my daughter will be graduating from college and we are thankful that despite the financial difficulty we didn’t gave up in supporting her education. We thought of giving her a gift but she requested us to buy her ticket for a two-day conference scheduled next month. I think that is more practical than giving her cheap acoustic guitars at guitarcenter.com.

(Failed) Artwork purchase

My daughter is a little disappointed today when her first artwork sale didn’t materialize. A buyer from Seattle was supposed to buy a digital drawing but didn’t pursue the transaction because of the exorbitant shipping fee. The artwork is just a size of a bond paper but the courier company rate is P1,330 (around $27). I told my daughter there will always be a next time.  With the present shipping rate I wouldn’t be surprised if the amount for sending a musiciansfriend.com guitar amp overseas is expensive as well.
