Bits

1 It was 1 AM and I was on my way home from work. There was a bit of fuss as passengers boarded the jeepney. I wondered what that was about and as I sat in my seat, I locked … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Rev up

The highly anticipated fifth month review took place yesterday with G, the team leader, and Johnny, the deputy team leader (should’ve been Depp but, yeah, it’s lame either way so… there). The review went well, I think, and they didn’t … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Frequencies

During my early days in the university I remember trying so hard to write anything—anything that my broken English could muster. There were a lot of drafts and fragments from stories I never had the chance to finish; verses and … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Gerunds

I’m not liking this person I’m becoming. While I’ve grown to accept some things I cannot change and learned not to expect anything from anybody, I’ve become more intolerant of injustices and vindictive to those who have done irreparable damage … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Note to self

What kept me going then was a simple statement, a self-pep talk—The trick is to find something to look forward to every single day. I try to use the same mantra nowadays and it keeps me up, makes me think: … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Day off ruminations VI

Some things take a lot of getting used to. There are some that I can manage—restoring my body clock, learning new stuff and unlearning the old. There are also some that I have no control over—shifting schedules, split RDs, stifling … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

C-zoned

It was like love in that way: Look at this! What’s going to happen here? “Unless the volcano erupts,” became a joke, like “See you Friday, unless the volcano erupts,” or “I’ll love you forever, unless the volcano erupts.” At … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Lately

It sucks that we won’t get to know what the future holds until it becomes the present and the fact that this starts to seem like a particularly pretentious introductory line sucks even more. I think I might have reached … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Postscript

I guess I have a thing for lockers. I fantasized about having one of them in high school and college, and was genuinely thrilled when I finally had one at the first company I worked for away from home. That’s … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Listless

24 days into 2014 and it’s been good, for the most part. The only trouble I seem to be having is forgetting that there should be a 4 instead of a 3 in the last Y of DD/MM/YYYY. Started the … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Let me count the days

I am bound to go back to regular programming in two weeks. Come November 16 I’d be taking calls again and, truth be told, I don’t know how to feel about this. Yes, I loathe the industry, I can’t stand the … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

I can’t wait for December

We had been so engrossed talking of the people who needed a wake-up call by the end of September that we almost didn’t notice October fly by in a whiff. It’s almost like the cigarette I set on the ashtray … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

RIPD: 1.1

I headed straight to 2702 on my first day. I met one important finance person and two of her minions there. After about an hour of waiting for my immediate superior at research, I went to 2501 at the command … Magpatuloy sa pagbasa
