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.

Been Almost 4 Years

Yesterday I was able to meet with my closest Chinese classmates from my postgraduate certification course. Coincidentally, they’re my fellow PhilNITS passers. 😎 I may not have used, up to this point, the bragging rights for passing such deadly exam, but I will always be proud of surviving such monstrosity. Instead of Maginhawa for some “food trip” we ended up at SM North, where we had dinner at 4 Fingers. Funny enough, it was actually recalled as 7 Fingers, which would make one wonder where the other three went. :laugh: Over the meal we talked mostly about what has happened with our careers, and how things could end up the way you didn’t want them, like being assigned to a team or a task you never imagined you’d be doing very soon. I will have to agree completely on the struggle of motivating someone when you yourself is not motivated and the absence of an immediate superior for quite some time just when you need it the most…

We watched Non-Stop starring Liam Neeson afterwards. Boy, that was truly suspenseful, I must say! When we were finally able to let go of our seats, we headed to Starbucks for more chatter, this time on travel overseas for the most part. Korea, I didn’t know, is a beer haven. Japan, of course, have porn everywhere. Then there’s this particular place in Taiwan where youths dwell, which also happens to be a party place of some sort. Someday! I’ll be there. When we parted I told the bastards them to sign up on Facebook for the love of God. Yeah, even until now I can only wonder what will make them do so.
