I was feeling low when I woke up today thinking of the day ahead, of the plans I have to fulfill, of the things I want to do, of how hard it is to get a part time home based job, of my frustrations on my financial obligations, loans and credit card bills I have to pay, of the hindrances I am facing before I get to relocate, and how I want to be debt free in an instant. I was thinking, am I depressed? Maybe yes. Or not. I was feeling out of sorts until I saw the state of the informal settlers along East Bank Road on my way to work this morning.

Friday + Payday + Traffic = BIGTI
It’s not the first time I complained with how unforgiving the roads are every Friday. I should have gotten used it to it and adjust since the roads won’t do that for me but today is an exceptionally difficult Friday morning. It didn’t even start during rush hours, my Friday started being a bitch when the clock turned 12:01 AM.
This is how my shitty morning started. Continue reading “fridaypocalypse”
May utang pa akong 14 Things About Me from Eylah at questions from Jhem kaya naisipan kong sagutin na lang muna kahit may client call ako in 30 minutes. Stress na stress kasi ako. Hindi dahil sa tambak ang workload (na magiging tambak na pagpalit ng araw sa Huwebes kasi antamad tamad ko na naman), kundi dahil sa 1,715 calories na kinain ko maghapon.
Thank you Aila for the blog award(s). As for your questions… Pakyu ka, ‘teh. Joke lang. Niyanig ng mga tanong mo buong pagkatao ko, bes. Hahaha.
It took me sometime to do this post because I want to honestly answer her questions but I don’t know how honest should I be. I even sent her a message asking how personal is personal. I was also contemplating if I will set this on private and just post the password in the group page then decided not to because, what the heck, this is a personal blog for some reason so I’ll share what I want.
I try not to hate all days of the work week, however, there are really days I can’t tolerate—Mondays and Fridays. If you are living in Metro Manila, I know you are one of millions who constantly face the crazy traffic from north to south of the city and vice versa. If you are a commuter like me, we face the long lines of MRT, P2P buses, PUVs, jeepneys and tricycles and the hours spent going from one place to another every fvcking day. Complaining and being late due to the traffic are sometimes not acceptable now since we all know that’s already a norm in Metro Manila’s roads. Mondays and Fridays are often the worst days for traffic. Continue reading “friday traffic + habal-habal”
Kakaumpisa pa lang ng buwan pero heto at tamad na tamad naman ako. Pakiramdam ko kasi routine na lang ginagawa ko; gising, minsan takbo, kain, ligo, layas, pasok sa opisina, tanga, trabaho ng pilit (kasi di naman matatapos yung workload ko kung magtitigan lang kame), tanga some more, trabaho ulit, tapos tanga ulit.
Wala na akong gana. Umay na umay na ako. If not because of the pay, a little flexi schedule, holidays off at walang pahirapan sa pagpapaalam sa leave, matagal ko ng nilayasan ‘to.
Hindi naman sa sobrang toxic yung trabaho, toxic na kasama at management pwede pa. Kaya lang kasi, mahigit sampung taon ko na ata ‘tong ginagawa. You are probably asking, bakit di ako magpapromote, mag-manager, ayoko eh. Okay na akong mediocre employee. Sulit na sulit ang ibabayad sa’yo pag nagpa-promote ka para lang sa 10% increase sa sahod mo, salaried ka na, no OT pays, no holiday pay, at no work and life balance pa. Hanggang sa pagtulog mo nagtatrabaho ka.
Andami kong gustong gawin, magtry mag work from home, sipagin, magrelocate, magtry ng bagong kompanya. Kaya lang sa sobrang tamad ko at kawalang ganang kumilos, wala. Eto ako, andito parin. Isang taon pa. Isang taon pa akong magbabyahe kada weekend. Magteten year anniversary muna ako dito, habang nagaantay kung magkakaroon ng lateral transfer sa site na gusto ko. Kung walang mago-open, mapipilitan akong magresign at magumpisa from scratch. Ilang buwan, araw, oras at minuto pa ba yun? Matagal pa.
Alam ko namang kailangan kong umayos. Kailangan ko pa naman ‘tong trabaho ko. Eto ang bumubuhay sa aming mag-ina. Pero, leche, kailangan ko ng isang katerbang inspirasyon kada araw para sipagin sa opisina. Kailangan ko ng renewed strength. Oppa, uubra kaya? Kung meron lang sanang kaopisinang gwapong may abs, baka kahit OT TY, kaya. Eh kaso waley. Kung hindi sila mga paminta, chopseuy ang makikita mo.
Lunes na naman. Kagagaling ko pa lang sa rest day, eto at nagbibilang na ako ng oras at araw bago magbiyenes. Gusto ko na ng day off ulit. Kung nabibili lang ang inspirasyon sa suking tindahan, bibili ako araw-araw. May nagbebenta ba ng bulto bulto nun sa Divisoria?
Leche talaga. Layas lang siguro katapat neto. Road trip tayo?
– wl, a.
Kung ganito lang ang laman ng opisina ko araw-araw, kahit doon na ako tumira. Charaught. Mga baks, apply tayo dito. Dali!
I recently went back to IG since I decided to curb the time I spend with Facebook. As I said on a previous post, I find the latter detrimental to my well being. Charaught. I do not know if that is a good thing, definitely a lesser evil compared to FB but, damn, my IG problems are back. Hahaha. Continue reading “the IG struggle is real”
