BORED. (and caught)

These past few days I found myself being bored to death (nearly). It's not like I'm babbling or complaining.. it's just that--it's better if I'm bombarded with stuffs (I mean the working stuffs). Like most trainees here would do.. I do fb most of the time. To fight boredom (It's a must!) but also making me less productive. You know, I decided to come to the office from Dec 28-30 because it's more boring at home..I might be dead for a couple of hours. So I decided to not have the option of boredom suicide. On Monday (Dec 28) I located terminal blocks for Ma'am Diane.. which was tiresome. I need to look for the distinguished DeltaV Cards and get it's terminal block description. (That's so tedious.. as for my part.) BTW I'm the only trainee left in our team.. both Clay and CM bade their goodbyes.. (at Starbucks) Well, they will be coming back for the despedida PARTY on January.. yes! with foods of course! That's already a tradition here.. all outcoming (basta yung papaalis na OJTs and Employees as well). So I'm stucked here alone. typing this. (Then SIR WILSON caught me doing this..what a BUMMER!) kakahiya much on my part. hahaha! This blog entry is really becoming incoherent by the minute. Gee. To fight boredom here in the office I do pseudo reviewing.. you know.. like I read a manual here about the Software Emerson sells (with my eyes CLOSED). hahaha! that's what you call psedo reading and reviewing. Next time.. I'll try the aLt+Tab more swiftly.. To prevent being caught.. AGAIN. Luckily, on Dec 29, I was tasked to do things such as reimaging and installation of DeltaV.. that I found myself busy that day. Well, today.. it's a whole lot different.. I hope this tyranny of time will turn out not just a tyranny.. but also an opportunity for me to just be as productive as I can be. Mind you.. PRODUCTIVE! So as to not again let my ideas be cluttered with things like this. Urgh!

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
