Zombie to Kapre
Last night I was already about to wrap up a post about our Malaysia trip over two months ago when it struck me how negligent and incompetent I am for not being able to accomplish it way earlier. Thus, at the last minute, I decided to move the draft to the Trash. It just didn’t feel right anymore. Even until now, my attention span is probably the most important thing that I need to improve on. Even selecting pictures to be uploaded on Facebook takes me weeks! Having said that, I’ll just leave here a link to the review I made of the place where we stayed at in Malaysia: Raizzy’s Guesthouse
For this year’s Halloween celebration at work I once again ended up in a costume. Well, technically I wasn’t really in any because of the mythical creature I was portraying as part of our team’s theme. If last year I was a zombie in a Barong Tagalog trying to become a part of Plants vs. Zombies 2 (damn, this makes me remember how that dress got ruined), this year I happened to be a Kapre. During the trick-or-treating activity some kids actually didn’t go near me unless they hear me sounding like a human or reaching out candies to them. It seemed they were truly terrified after seeing the other side of the office where apparently horror flicks were being shown on the screens. All in all, I once again had fun in Halloween. Also, I got to keep the pants-turned-shorts that I wore, and I have this very great feeling that I’ll be using it again in the future.
Rundown of the Recent
If there’s one thing that’s become totally different, it’s my attention span. It’s not even the attention span per se (and I’m actually just pretending to know how to use this term). These days, once I get on my Jurassic ACER Aspire 4715Z, all I primarily do is browse Facebook or scan movies or TV series or anime episodes I’ve already seen. Where did my Photoshop time go? And before I even know it, I already have no time for other things. Even the simplest chores can no longer be easily accommodated. M’I getting old or what? I think it worsened when I got a touchscreen phone. At any rate, maybe I’m just really being a dick with time management. Well, as per LeAnn Rimes, life goes on. And I’ve been through a couple of things lately, actually.
I got a new job in the business district where I first worked. So far, things have been going very well. What I’ve been prohibited in my previous workplace are all back, and I really mean back. Of course I’m not saying everything sucked there. For one, we went to Bataan for our team building slash company outing. The beach may not be that wonderful, but I truly had fun. The activities were quite organized and the socialization by the beach at night… Priceless. My stay with the company was exactly two years. My three managers may have been unable to talk me out of it but the mere thought of not having to burn bridges and having smooth and friendly conversations was fulfilling in itself. It was never in any way ill-mannered, or something. On my last day I received a customized album with everyone’s messages and cutouts of my Facebook profile pictures. Not to mention the three mini liquors to start my collection! Thanks, mite!
The smartphone that I mentioned above was a Nexus 5. Yes, was. It was pickpocket-ed ’round two months ago. It’s a long story, and I was truly frustrated with how it happened. The saddest part of it was that I didn’t back up all the pictures of a recent trip to Ilocos and Pangasinan when I had all the chance in the world. It took me eight drinking nights before finally getting over it, somehow. I sure miss its camera… Other than that, after hearing from friends many things I never even seriously considered until now, I’m in an attempt to prove something in life. If by the year-end I still don’t see it, then we have a predicament in our hands. No, wait, that should be just me.
