Countdown (The Need To Speak?)

I'm dressed close to decent, and I have nowhere to go, killing time until I sleep to wake up to work the next day. My current efforts are costing me a single Philippine currency unit a minute, as I am in an internet shop whose rates are slightly exhorbitant, but satisfactory when quality (i.e. speed)...

Less for More

Here's a commercial. I've been through a stressful situation to stress something that has to be stressed.Just a while back I had an agent rush to me, asking for me to speak with his customer because he was asking for a supervisor.

Another Fork In The Path

The excitement doesn't seem to end, ladies and gentlemen! Here I am recovering from my last tirade involving being spellbound and speechless - actually more speechless than spellbound - and now with what's going on, a pleasant memory finds itself leaving my mind with as much reasons to smile as there are to fret. See,... Continue Reading →

Truth and Consequence

I'm at work, and I'm sick. Let me elaborate.

I am literally speechless in an... Continue Reading →

Trouble in Paradise II

Pressure makes diamonds, as they say. Pressure makes people grow. In fact, I know of a friend who explicitly welcomes pressure as part of her life. It's been roughly a month and a half since I started my stint in Manila, and during that course of time, I have indirectly come to agree with this... Continue Reading →

In The Dumps

(Impromptu)I've been away from home, but the funny thing is I've never experienced being locked out of where I call home... Until now.Chalk this up with the whole list of other things that just happened to disturb me today. Some people just don't know how thankful they are that they have the conveniences that they...

Pain Reaction

I used to be proud to be cynical... Until today. The problem is that we're all in a world that denies that they have a conclusion about someone before they actually meet them up front. It works both ways. We can have a good outlook on a person, and chances are we become disappointed when... Continue Reading →
