Status Update for Charles Harman

This is an update on what is going on in my personal life here in Lapu-Lapu City Philippines. I told my wife when she wanted to attend College a few months ago, that I fully support her in every way. Since she is in a Medical field the College costs are fairly high. I told her I am willing to hang in there, and cut spending as much as possible so finances are available for her education. I am OK with this until she is finished, even if it means sitting in my little room and not going out very often. She has just finished mid terms and now completed two semesters at Southwestern University in Cebu City. Marianne is working hard spends almost 100% of her free time on studies and is doing well. I spend most days right here in my little room on this computer and don’t get out in the sun light very often. I have not been to a beach resort in months now, kind of miss that but I’m not complaining, because it’s all for her, and I  know time will pass. She will eventually get done with her college studies and then we will celebrate by going somewhere nice. I have had several colds and one episode of the flue. I think I may be lacking in vitamin “D” as I spend most of my time in this room and very little outside. To cut spending I am eating a lot less and eating things like fish and rice, Filipino style. I like to dream of how life will be for us once she has finished her schooling and is a registered pharmacist with her own Pharmacy. I think at that point we will be living in our own home somewhere in the Cebu City area. I will have my own office separated from the sleeping areas. Right now we are in a two bedroom rental apartment in Lapu-Lapu City very near the court house, McDonald’s and Gaisano Island Mall here on the main highway in Lapu-Lapu. It is cramped and my office is just in a corner of the bedroom dust is a huge problem here due to the bed and blankets and clothing. I look forward to the future when we are self sustaining with enough money coming in that we won’t need to depend on Social Security and Pensions. Below are a few photos of like here in our $160 per month rental apartment.
